Final Appeal to Niantic for Portal reinstate and spoof link restore (section 14)

On October 24th Kolkata Enlightened agents did an OP after long time with 41 Layers and approx 290M MU, which was wistfully spoofed down (south anchor) by a cheating account @DARKSSSSST. Following is reditlink of the original OP:



After reaching out to Niantic Support twice ( 25th Oct Report#15188304 and 8th Nov Report#15317257) concerning cheating account was finally banned. Since then we are trying to reinstate the portal (“⁣New landscape in Haldia” Link:,88.054497&z=16&pll=22.022099,88.05998 but it is of no effect through normal process i.e. In-Game support and Fast-Track forms.


Finally on Nov2nd @NianticThia 's post (Link: on Niantic's announcement of Section 14 and VG @Azhreia-ING 's clarification of Niantic's official stance on Portal Reinstate and restoration of spoofed link was a ray of hope.

We have reached out to more than one VGs and XM-Ambassadors, all of them have been very cordial and tried to help us in their capacity. Sadly still neither the said anchor portal nor the Spoofed links have been restored. We have filled all the google forms sent our way. Since 30 day time limit of reinstate (from day of spoof) is fast approaching I don't have any other option than to draw Niantic's attention through this post.


I'm not sure if it will be possible to build back the entire OP, but even if the anchor, baselink and major safelinks can be reinstated it will be a great help. @NianticGiffard @NianticAaron @NianticCasey-ING @NianticAtlas @NianticKN-ING please help us out over here.
