Why is forum participation made “mandatory” by Niantic?
Want to know the latest criteria updates? Oh, they’re not on the main site, they’re hidden away in a year old topic.
Want to repot an Invalid Wayspot? Well, your report via the game won’t work, wait until you get the and then dox yourself on the forums.
Want to participate in a Wayfarer challenge? What’s that, you didn’t know there was one? Oh, sorry you need to be on forums.
Want to ask an important question to Niantic? Sorry buddy, gotta go to the forums.
