Can we get some xm “geodes” that you gotta walk to crack open and they reward gear?
Is there any reason why Public Prime release has still so bad graphics compared to year old Prime Beta App?
Left side = Prime Public App
Right side = Prime Beta App from November 2018
Is there any reason for this, is this done on purpose? For example to save battery life?
Both screenshot taken using the same Samsung S8 phone. Same time, same place.
So this is not a hardware issue,
Public App just have some configuration flag ON somewhere in code to show less details?
In our region, there have been a lot of discussions recently regarding graveyards and cemeteries.
The guidelines say, cemeteries should not be a wayspot ("avoided").
Then again, graves and memorials of well-known persons can be wayspots, if they are accessible for the public. What is not clear, is, whether this refers to gravestones in cemeteries, or to gravestones on any other areas, such as your example Elvis' grave, which is on private museum-grounds.
In central Europe cemeteries are publicly accessible in general, so this addition contradicts the first statement in the rule.
Furthermore, it has been discussed a lot, if other objects - like chapels, fountains or memorials - which are located on cemetery grounds, should be a wayspot if they fulfill wayspot criteria in themselves.
Could you clarify this? Thank you in advance!
Hi Andrew, hope you’re well. First time AMAer here. OPR/Wayfarer question: What are your thoughts on Cafés and Coffee Shops being wayspots? I only ask as a few agents in our community were doing ‘Dry October’ so we were browsing locations for a social and ended up settling on a Subway in range of a few portals.
while these places meet the criteria for a community meeting spot and somewhere I would take someone visiting my city, as it stands, they are marked as generic businesses.
Do you have any thoughts on this?
Many thanks and warm regards from the UK! (Despite it being freezing at the moment 😂)
Hi Andrew. Any feedback on the insights on this post?
It would be nice to know if the team is working on this issue. Thanks
A lot of people including myself consider reviewing submissions that are clearly trolling are a waste of time. Can we get a report option for those that clearly sent trash submissions (animals, people, food) so Naintic can ban them temporarily or indefinitely? Or maybe a warning and if they do it again, they will receive a permanent ban.
There is a difference between bad submissions (schools, candidates in private residential areas) and those done on purpose as the trash submission examples previously given; and for the latter, they should receive a punishment for clearly not wanting to improve the game experience.
Hi Andrew!!! 👻👻🥳🥳😋😋🤡🤡🤡⚽⚽⚽🤩🤩🤩😂😂😂
I would like to suggest to have the Banner Mission Rejection issues/features built into the Mission Authoring Tool. Reason for this is because this would make things much improved in the Approval of missions/banner missions. May I hear your thoughts on this? Do you see an issue with this feature opportunity??
Thank you very much!!
Arabic and right-to-left support for portal names?
There are a lot of bad portal submissions out there. Some can be traced to a number of bad actors, who have also moved portals on a grand scale to achieve some pokemon arenas where there should be none. What do you think of a special tool to report such serial abuses where either the bad actor would get a submission cooldown, or where submissions in a certain defined areas would be doublechecked by a xf panel of trusted evaluators. Some agents are prepared to travel to check the validity of portals.
Is the Nemesis member Courier the trickster archetype and having a go at us or is he actually a Hank Johnson from an alternate universe.
Will there be ANY anomaly on 2020?
Have you thought on having an option to display a bigger picture when you click on a portal (Maybe at the center of the portal)? It is one of the things how Ingress caught me into the game when i started: I just clicked portals around to see the pictures and know the whereabouts and most recently it was a nice way to recognize a portal while playing. I know I can click on the minipicture to see a bigger image but It is one of the bigger things I miss from redacted.
With the semi-recent clarification that sports fields are eligible, our area has seen a large influx of submissions where a half dozen or more ball diamonds in the same park will be submitted, often with either no signage or a picture of the backstop with a "2" sign and a title of Park Diamond #2.
Would it be the position of Niantic that each individual diamond, soccer pitch and set of basketball nets in a park is eligible, or should side-by-side fields of the same type be rejected?
I went to the First Saturday this week end in Viladecans, and I think we all realised we missed some community events. Mission days are an amazing way to discover the city, First Saturday are good for uniques and challenge, anomalies are good fun.
When are we going to have new events in Europe? Is there anything we could do to help you organise them?
Are picnic tables good candidates, asking for a friend?
Is there a chance that you implement some kind of penalties for „bad portal“-approvers?
