Request for my Wayfarer forum account to be deleted/banned myself
Recently after reporting many Wayfarer abusing activities in Vietnam, I haven't been cyber-bullied heavily by the abusers in many ways on many social platforms. The critical problem of this forum is that it doesn't have any way to protect the reporters' identity/privacy but this is another problem off this post.
My Ingress account was exposed so I decide to request it to be deleted soon, unfortunately but necessarily.
After my Ingress account be deleted, there maybe a chance that I would accidentally log in this forum by Go account (with the same email). When this happens, my Go account would also be accidentally exposed. So I want to ask for a favor that my Wayfarer forum account (only this forum, not the Wayfarer website that is used to submit/review) to be deleted or at least banned so I would no longer be able use my main email to log in this forum and have no chance accidentally exposed my Go account.
@NianticVK @NianticGiffard @NianticTintino Thank you for all your hard word on this forum.
I hope hearing back from you soon.
I feel you. Many of us have already encountered the same thing happened to you, mine included.
Again, it's another failure of Niantic not acting strictly against abusers, nor giving clear instruction how to report abuse. Well, you actually have an option to report it anonymously (via the newly support chat from Wayfarer help page), but when it goes into inclusion rule abuse, the support will tell you to use the form that was actually for property owner or manager, which making things harder to reporter.
And their action against abusers won't stop them—either the sanction only affects their Wayfarer account, or their alt accounts are being affected instead. And of course, they don't have the control over social media, so don't expect they'll protect you against cyberbullying.
Just where are you, @NianticTintino @NianticGiffard @Danbocat-PGO ? Holiday and New Year season should be over in the US, but neither of you has show up since January 1 until now.
Thank you for all your supports.
I don't expect that Niantic would do something to protect me. Right now the only thing that I can do is trying protect myself by cutting off the relationship between my Ingress account (which was exposed) and this Wayfarer forum account with my Go account. By this way I can keep my Go account privately and about Ingress, I also would create a new one and start the journey again.
Why would you log back in here? If you need to, just create a new ingress account and use that (don't need to use it to play ingress or anything if you have deleted your other one and don't plan on playing again)
Because after deleting my Ingress account, there would be a chance that I accidentally log in this forum with same email. If that happens, this forum account would change to displaying my Go account (due to Ingress one being deleted). You know that muscle memory is a pain. So I just ask for an additional protection.
This is an example of why their plans to unify everything with Niantic ID doesn't look like a good idea
i remember the days i used to play ingress...''omg leave my farm'' ''why did you create that link it bothers me'' etc etc and i received cyberbully too from the ingame chat, i just typed ''shut up kids i do what i want, if you have a problem come in person and tell me'' and well...many years later still here like np
Thank you for demonstrating that the targeting of @JeremyZeroOne-ING is real and not imagined.
@JeremyZeroOne-ING I see where you're coming from.
I would suggest you reach out to our concerned team through in-app regarding this query, we'll take it from there!
Did you mean he must fill the form utilized for property owners/managers to remove Wayspots? I though I've told you until Niantic change their policy, there's no point reporting Wayspots through in-game support chat.
I assume you've at least got some informations from @NianticVK and @NianticAtlas so here's a summary while you're away: the team have removed some Wayspots in that Vietnam cluster (which was made by your mistake) and many more across Vietnam. That's when the abusers found this forum and start attacking the OP, and @NianticVK closed that thread as the result yet the report is still being investigated. The damage that OP has sufferred from this is too high that he requested such requests, yet none of the abusers who attacked him are banned from this forum.
Anyway, welcome back to this forum.
Unifying all the accounts was one of the biggest mistakes they've ever made. And I'm talking about a company that makes mistakes on a weekly basis.
Recently it's been an annoyance with my Pikmin account. I don't want all my GO friends to be friends in that game. But I've also had Wayfarer problems with it.
Sad to hear about your story.
Just a friendly reminder, if you ask your Ingress account to be deleted AND you are using the same e-mail account to access Wayfarer, all your statistics will be lost. The nominations will remain as they are, but your Wayfarer rating, upgrade progression and statistics about agreements and upgrades will be reset to zero.
They still might not tell you this from the customer service when asking a single game account to be deleted (I hope they do, earlier they did not), so I'm just posting to give you a heads up about this.
