Likely shouldn't but trying to get a single POI that is in a bad or dangerous area removed, is usually harder than trying to find a needle in a haystack. So, trying to get many removed....lol laughable at best and will bring the poke anger on full tilt as well.
But I'm mostly worried about having legit portals deleted, as they get submitted as do not exist or mismatched locations by lazy agents (cough OPR/Wayfarer).
Mismatched locations have existed since seer.
I have tried to correct many after years and it goes to no action or rejection from Niantic.
Has anyone used this feature yet?
If anyone did, we probably would have seen a topic about it.
That's why I'm assuming it's a server switch. Also, 2.41.x seems to have been a buggy release.
What's up with enabling the feature? The announcement was written in a way that I thought the feature will be live as soon as the update is out. But nobody seems to have it enabled yet...
Hmmm.. is it enabled yet?
I didn't want to do that but as it takes real long somehow, can @NianticBrian or maybe @ofer2 explain why it takes so long to enable? Did something go not according to plan?
i guess its not redo to rollout yet for some reason who knows.
Honestly, given the need to keep people away from public spaces wherever not necessary right now, releasing it might be the wrong idea.
It's released! Good luck agents!
Please share video about portal scanning if Niantic relese it now in USA. 😊
Here you go:
Portal Scanning help Ingress or we only use Ingress Prime and portal scanning for only help other apps from Niantic?
Lots of portals we cant go around and we cant use portal scanning. Signs on houses and lots more portals we cant go around. Please explain Niantic and fix video about portal scanning.
This reminds me of the original trailer for Ingress, which shows an AR representation of deploys and captures
no youtube video on this? any links?
@NianticBrian I've seen your announcement that scanning is now live; could you perhaps elaborate on the data usage this will generate, and if there's a way to delay uploading until on WiFi? I suspect many are not able to upload whole movies on their data plan..
About 80-200 MB per scan, and yes you can delay uploading
There's a video of portal scanning floating around that shows all this.
Let me see if I can find it
Edit; Not the video I was talking about but the one posted a couple of comments up shows the exact same thing
I posted a video on YouTube of my first portal scan, and linked it a few comments up (https://youtu.be/12VbmPfMU5Q). I'm planning to put together a more comprehensive version once I get the time, now that I've done my 50 portal scans and unlocked the bronze badge.
To answer @Jeroenix's questions, the scans tend to be in the 150-200 MB range. You can either choose to upload them immediately, or save them for later uploading over WiFi (but of course, those files take significant storage on your device until they get uploaded, so it's a trade-off).
portal scanning help Ingress Prime AR or we only help AR in other apps from Niantic? Niantic never say. I dont like help other apps from Niantic when i only play Ingress Prime.
Everything is connected. If you don't like to help the others, stop playing Ingress.
Today I found out that if you take a portal scan in an area where its available, select upload later, and when I am on Wifi, its not available in this area, I cannot upload it lol
So I will have to use data or wait when its available on my area -.-
Thanks for the info, good to know. The clip looks good, but I agree that it should look more sci-fi.. get people to really want to do it.
Simple question for Niantic folks:
How, on the development schedule, will data gathered from this feature be integrated into Ingress Prime?
Or will it?
@NianticBrian @NianticCasey Must explain they use the data from portal scanning to help Ingress or they only use the data from portal scanning to only help new app Catan. I only play Ingress Prime and only like help Ingress Prime with new 3D AR. I dont use Portal Scanning if Niantic dont describe if we help Ingress Prime.
How many scans can u make on a portal, 5- 10? is there a limit ?
I thought you hated prime and loved only old redacted.🤔
No. I only like help Ingress Prime with portal scanning. When Niantic dont say if portal scanning help Ingress Prime i dont like use it. I must know if data from portal scanning help Ingress Prime.
There is no limit on how many scans you can make on a portal. Only limit is how many you can do in a 14 day span which is 200.
