Question on behalf of @0X00FF00
Q: It is becoming increasingly obvious that too many OPR reviewers are not reviewing correctly. Now that we can see some of the reasons they are using to reject a submission, we're utterly boggled at times.
One specific example of mine, there is a mural inside a store. The mural is not the store, it's not even advertising for the store, it is obviously hand-painted art. Yet the rejection reason here is "Generic business".
Can we ever hope in the future, as a submitter, to flag some of our rejected submissions for "OPR abuse"? With the eventual goal being to help educate these misguided reviewers?
The most recent update seemed to add quite a lot of vibration (or haptic feedback) to everyday actions like pressing buttons and recycling items. Is there any consideration to either lessening this vibration, or providing a toggle for users? Many of us enjoy the vibrations on glyph hacking, low XM and portal attacks but view the extensive rollout of vibrations as excessive.
Thanks for your consideration.
Q: When will we see Visit/Capture indicators on portals and can they be included on the Intel map as well?
Can we reorder the character badge in the further?
Q: Can we get a read-only view of our Inventory on the Intel map, so we can share our key lists with each other without vast manual copy and paste?

Q: As a new player, I was hugely disappointed to find out that because I signed up with Facebook not Google I’m locked out of creating missions and will be locked out of OPR when I get to level 12. I’m thinking about abandoning my month-old level 10 account and starting again. Would a warning about this at sign-up be a good idea, or are we perhaps looking at a low value of ‘soon’ for a fix?
Now that [REDACTED] has been redacted, how soon do you expect to announce and roll out the promised benefits of recursion?
Can we please have the mission created limit raised?
Is there any timeframe regarding the picture orientation issue with respect to ios13 & the scanner nomination process?
Secondly, I can’t seem to submit any pictures via the scanner based help system. I see a camera icon & then select the picture to submit, but then see no upload button. Have asked this to support with no response. Please help!
Can you say, unequivocally and with total certainty, that Niantic DOES care about its player base and that you DO listen to every feedback you get from us?
ITCT had done series of serious cheating in Ingress undetected from 2016 until Redacted offlline, while a single unintentional mistake from legit agent (such as include Ingress in game Booster app) gets them banned immediately.
How will NIA ensure the same thing won't happened to Prime?
The scheduling of events for Pokemon, WU, and Ingress on the same day or spanning the same time frame is difficult for players wanting to participate. Niantic could block time better it would seem so that agents can schedule their time and not have to choose between one game over another. It just seems Niantic is making their games compete against each other. As a long time Ingress player, I feel that with the flawed Prime launch and competing WU and Pokemon events, Ingress is getting pushed aside. We are losing key players. Will Niantic continue on this track?
Q: When back end servers are rewritten, what checks and guarantees will we have that the game will play the same way? Things like making sure links traverse on Great Circles, and that all of the range calculations are the same etc.
Is there a Roadmap of features you would like to introduce, that you can share? I don't expect a timeline, just some cool things that you guys might want to introduce, things you're working on. Recent release notes have dropped "What we are working on next", which was something I always liked reading.
Thoughts on having portal subs be based on density of current cells? Eg, if you're in a city with lots of portals you can only submit say 2 or 3 portals every 2 weeks, but if we are somewhere rural we could submit like 30.
Hope you are doing well. I just have a some questions.
Thanks for your time.
I, like many other veteran/Founder agents, retired with Scanner [Redacted]. Do you foresee any future events or incentives to lure "retired" agents back to active play?
On August 25th, Bloomington, Indiana hosted a Mission Day + NL-1331 meetup. Friends and rivals from both factions gathered for missions, exercise, and a general good time.
44 days later, none of us have our MD badge tick, and four agents still don’t have their NL badge. Thus far, Niantic has been unresponsive and our POCs don’t have the information they need to answer our questions.
My question is: Does Niantic have a plan in place to improve communication with players when delays and problems occur, especially as we move forward into the era of paid events?
Q: Niantic have been "beta testing" Pokemon Go portal submissions for over a year now. I realise you’re not going to make any big Pokemon-related announcements here, but is there anything you can say about what looks to us like a decade-long one country at a time roll-out of a system that has been widely criticised by players of both games from day one?
Q: I'm interested in your views on how well Ingress OPR is coping with Pokemon Go portal submissions, now we're a year into the beta test. The system has been widely criticised by players of both games from day one, but nothing has changed. Can we expect our criticisms to be addressed 'soon™'?
Q: Will we ever get a visible indicator of Flipcard cooldowns? The cooldown was introduced in 2013 and has always been difficult to manage over the next 6 years.
Q: Are there any plans for an Intel API or additional features to the Intel Map? Will IITC ever be given legitimacy?
Does Nia have the plan to support Apple ID login as Apple's request? Also will Nia support Apple Id login on Android version?
Is there some way we can encourage submitting agents and opr reviewers to adhere to the "high quality" part of "high quality nominations"? I feel like I'm seeing a lot of generic poolside Pergolas and patios and sportfields that are more empty space coming through opr because players with an agenda that is contrary to Ingress's lore are accepting everything that vaguely fits the "place people gather" or "promotes outdoor activity" description. Does lore even matter anymore? Does Niantic really want a database of every store bought pergola and parking lot basketball course?
Simple yes or not opr question
If I vote 2 stars to a candidate and it gets approved....is it an agreement?
In the early days of Ingress Prime there was a well-maintained known issue list, but it was outdated since several months ago. Will you consider re-enable this issue list to provide a better feedback for those who actively reports issue? I feel frustrated that most of my feedbacks were not replied by official staff, which makes me feel my feedbacks were ignored.
Are there any upcoming improvements to the visual display of the scanner in regards to viewability during daytime, as well as lack of contrast in general? The lighting dynamics feature is appreciated, but the map still seems dim and muted compared to Scanner Redacted. It is also quite difficult to tell if a field or links are weakened.
Thoughts on having monthly Field Test style events (running on the 3rd Saturday of every month)? I really enjoyed the live competitive nature of it. (I made a post about this expanding on it)
Q: Are there plans to rewrite the guides to reviewing and portal submission, so that all the compiled wisdom of the AMA's, various responses, and changes to Niantic policy can be compiled in one easy place? It's getting hard to remember all the back and forth.
I post this thread for one of my friends, who registered for ingress 6 years ago with a non-gmail email address. Obviously he cannot login to this forum with a gmail/google account. However, even though he had associated his ingress prime account with a Facebook account, he still cannot login to this forum with the facebook certification.
He is an active agent, and has tons of opinions and ideas to share with everyone, so it will be a pity if he keeps being denied by this community forum. Fix this issue, please.
Does the EAW badge still be awarded to people who meet the standards?
