Is this happening everywhere or is my city - Gdańsk, Poland affected by some plague?
shouldn’t something like a limit for number of Wayspots per square meter be introduced? The largest I’ve seen was 7…
How many of them have their title and/or description written in Kashubian language?
It is better to give rough coordinates for the team to investigate.
Could you provide the address or lat/lon of this location and I'll have it reviewed.
I found it, should be at 54.349597,18.652704.
And by this many Wayspots within this area makes me difficult to interact with the map, mainly to zoom in and swipe. And there are many more within wider area.
When "Operation Clear Poland"? GOFest is over. For the removed one, three new even worse enters.
When you'll be looking into this area, @NianticAaron, could you please look into inclusion rules on already reviewed streets to ensure Ingress portals are not limited to PGo inclusion rules?
This is affecting historic Ingress missions along ul. Długa / Długi Targ / Św. Ducha that have now been "removed".
Should you require any context, please DM me.
@NianticAaron any updates?
How is this even possible?
Abuse. And you won't get any more clear of an answer here than that because we don't want to be a how-to guide for abusers. Just know that this is the kind of thing that qualifies for the new abuse ladder.
You know what really bugs me about this? I'm a site reliability engineer by trade. When we come across a problem that requires human intervention we fix it. When we come across a recurring pattern of problems we do a deep dive into the issue and figure out how to address it systemically rather than ad hoc. The goal is to prevent the issue from recurring, but sometimes human intelligence may be required...if that's the case we build tooling to automatically detect the pattern and put it in front of human eyes.
Niantic has seen this abuse pattern countless times before. It should be an easy thing to detect programmatically, and while Niantic may or may not be able to prevent it from happening they should at least be able to detect abusive clusters and cut tickets to the right team so that they can review and mitigate the issue.
Why haven't they done this?
We have reviewed this location and have taken appropriate action in accordance with our policies. You should see the changed reflected soon. Thanks,
