If this is the place to appeal portals, will we have to follow the same template that we had in G+, and, if so, could you pin it to the top?
Yes! This category is a replacement to the G+ Community. Also, the template is posted and pinned, great suggestion!
Please add "Removed Portal" category for retired portal appeal as well
@PaperBoats you can use the Invalid Portal report category for this.
How do we attach images without having to be a forum veteran first? It's going to be a long time before most people can make a portal appeal according to the template.
Are we allowed to report invalid portals without going through the ingame report system if they are re-submitted?
For example: i encounter a fake portal. i report it through redacted, it takes weeks to get an answer which is mostly negative and then i am able to submit an appeal. this system works. BUT if the agent whos portal got removed just submits it again and it goes live again in the same location and close to an identical name do i have to go through the redacted report all over again?
in that case the agent who submits fake portals simply won. it takes weeks to months to remove a false portal and resubmitting it and getting it online again can be done in 3 days.
@NIA_casey it appears that there is nothing stickied to the top. Also... are we allowed to appeal rejected portals from OPR?
No. They've said that repeatedly, in every version of the portal appeal system.
@Cadgar Please report this via the help center and the OPR team will look into this issue., You can use the OPR Issues category for reporting OPR abuse.
I've updated this so that the appeal template post is pinned to the top of the category. I am also working to update the design so that pinned posts are more easily distinguished from the rest of discussions. Thanks!
