Fake Portal Images
RainbowSmurf-ING Posts: 1 ✭
Was unable to find either of these portals at Newark Airport and Denver Airport, both in the United Airlines terminal. Then realized they are exactly the same image.
How do we request to have both removed, and if the same player submitted them both to have them banned from portal submission?

All of them have identical photos with blue clothes hanging on the far right side. Based on photo searches I suspect that the mural exists somewhere, possibly, in one of those airports, but at least four of them must be fake.
its possible the the murals were removed you can report it for removal in the game
@dman41689-PGO It's not possible that there are perfectly identical murals at five different airports, including a clothing rack with exactly the same clothing on it in exactly the same position. The images on those five wayspots are identical down to the pixel.
BTW, I only checked the US looking for identical murals. There may be more overseas.
I said it was possible that it was removed not that they were all the same. either way they're not there so all you have to do is report it.
@dman41689-PGO I looked at all five of them and I guarantee they all have identical photos. The real problem is that someone is submitting fakes. Reporting them as removed probably won't change anything, and it doesn't get the submitter any punishment for submitting fakes.
Sure, let's just have someone fly to 5 different airports to report obviously fake wayspot submissions.
if they saw the wayspots they should've been able to report it
Shady. Not only should the submitter be banned but everything they nominate should be be deleted
That's if anyone ever noticed there is a perfectly similiar mural in 5 different airports.
Niantic has the database and could easily search for duplicate images-- this is the sort of code that a software engineering intern could knock out in no time flat. There's no reason that an individual should have to notice that multiple wayspots have identical images.
We have reviewed the report and taken action on the 5 Wayspots and Wayfinder in accordance with our policies. While we are unable to discuss our actions in detail to protect the submitter’s privacy, they may include, but are not limited to, sending a warning message, placing restrictions on their Wayfarer, Pokémon GO, or Ingress account, putting their account on probation, or placing a temporary or permanent suspension on their Wayfarer, Pokémon GO or Ingress account.
Thanks for helping us maintain the quality of the Wayspots.
