    Postscript.

    As the story goes, I received a proposal with the face of the proposer's child in it.

    It is obviously a picture of that person's child, so I hesitate to start a thread, even if it is mosaic.

    What should I do?

    Hi @NianticGray

    Today, a friend sent me the following image.

    It seems that the image I requested before has not been corrected.

    Is that okay? He said he reviewed it today.

    Mentioning someone in a discussion (like this: @Name) is a great way to encourage dialog and let them know who you’re talking to.

    Since Nia closed the thread, here an short answer to your question concerning Germany vs Streetview:


    In principle it's allowed to take spheres. The corresponding laws (copyright and so on) have enough degrees of freedom, so that single persons can do this without any problems.

    Even Google started their google car surveys like evrywhere else, and so there is official streetview available in the biggest cities. But since google is a company there are a few differences: so afaik google needs to ask the property owners, whether they want to have their property blurred or not, before publishing the sompany-created survey spheres. In most other countries google only has to deal only with requests for blurring afterwards.

    Google was not aware of that problem, when they started their surveys. Then there was a big resonance and lots of Germans wanted their houses blurred - google didnt want that additional work, so they stopped the streetview survey at some point here.

    Additional the German people are often very suspicious even if they see that you are taking photos of for example playgrounds or normal houses, for example for POI submissions. Older Germans smell danger and crimes, and may swear at you.... So creating a photosphere (with spinning 5min and taking lots of photos) is something, that you can do, but you often dont want to (if you dont have a 360° cam so that you are done within a second). Somewhere in the forrest - no problem to create a sphere. A playground next to a appartment block - never ever I would create a sphere there ....

    And I dont know, what happens, when Niantic as a company forces their players to take spheres - maybe the additional laws, that led google to stop streetview here, could apply to Nia then. But nethertheless - with the general refusal of Streetview within big parts of the German population I personally don't want to be forced to take spheres

      Thank you for really nice explanation, it's really helpful! I didn't know it was such big topic with bluring houes in Germany. It make sense why Google don't add more streetview, it would be so much work for them to blurry so many places.
      I understand now why Germans often don't make photospheres even if it's possible. I also know some areas where making photosphere could get you in trouble (people are suspicious just as older Germans ;)) so I perfectly understand why people are afraid of doing them in some areas.
      Your explanation was really helpful!

      As for Niantic possible idea of forcing making photospheres for edits - I'm not sure if it could ever become a thing, as it required much more from phones than just taking photos and it would cause permament photospheres added to another company's website (Google Maps), so it might cause some lawsuit problems in the future.

      Now photosphere's are made by players free will, but if Niantic required to make photospheres and there would be some issues with them (like problem with personal information visible on them), it could be easly going on Niantic rules problem, and Niantic for sure wouldn't like that.
      I'm also curious what would be done if it would become a thing. But I agre with you, forcing someone to do photospheres if they don't want it is definetly not good idea.

    I GIVE UP!

    I have applied for a pokestop that by all things I have read should be accepted with no issue. I have had that same spot deemed ineligible for three different reason, NON OF WHICH ARE ACCURATE!

    1st refusal- used emoji/emoticon

    2nd refusal- near a portal???

    3rd refusal- seasonal location

    Time is valuable, this takes all the fun out of this! I have gone over 600 nominations, try to be fair, what’s the point.

    Like I said…. I GIVE UP!

    hi, I set my bonus location to Russia before I saw your post about setting my home location to russia. When I went back to try and change my bonus location to what it was before it wouldn't allow me to. Will I still get the rewards with my bonus location set to Russia and will I be able to change it back after the challenge? If not can you please have it reset for me and should I change me home location to Russia? Please advise at your earliest convenience. Thank you in advance for your assistance

      S14 and S17 cells are used for Pokémon Go.
      One pokestop per S17 cell and there can be up to 64 stops in a S14 grid.
      As for gyms, gyms are triggered by the number of pokestops in that grid.

      See this link https://pokemongohub.net/post/article/comprehensive-guide-s2-cells-pokemon-go/ that speaks to how many stops (POI) you would need each time to activate a gym in that S14 grid.
