Portals should credit creator
edited May 2021 in Report a Bug
At the moment, Agent who submitted portal photo is credited. However, there is no mention of portal creator. This leads to faction wars on some area to keep bad photo, but from creator of portal over good photo submitted later. Quality of portals would greatly increase, if the creator was credit by simple string "discovered by IGN" in portal details. Current credit fo photo submitter could be renamed to "photo by IGN".
Attached example of such case when low quality phone is voted due to fact, it credits original creator of portal. We have many such cases in our area, where old photo is immidetly voted back by community when changed to new with higher quality.

Agree. Portal discoverer should be credited.
Should be easy to add just one text line for example between main portal image and Scout Controller text:
"Discovered by: Blasse"
This is not a bug though, but rather a feature request. Those are best posted to the General category.
Even a new "Feature Request" chat category may be useful:
I think its a good idea
or just add when the picture was added like in pogo.
oldest one is the discoverer.
I'd be happy with simply an extra icon indicating the original submitter.
You're being generous in your examples.
I have some with over 15 likes in a terrible picture, that the person had the trouble of going 15km away his home just to do it. And another that almost looks like he tried his best to do a bad job, in a portal he thought it was my couch portal. Both pretty obviously just to spite me, since the person barely create portal, and in the same week this two cases happened in both portals created by me. Probably got mad because I managed to swap the picture of one his favorite portals, but I have over 500 portals created in the region and almost that in extra pictures too...
This one was good because it has clearly bad quality photo ;) I had some other examples, but the point is to get it resolved. I have this feeling, that crediting portal discoverer would help a bit - and it should be pretty easy to implement.
I know that one Agent in my hometown made a habit of changing the primary photo of portals I submitted, after I moved countries.
