Portal: La palla di cannone/Cannonball (1813)
City: Trieste, Italy
Location: 45.659512, 13.774601
Appeal Category: [Rejected submission, it does not meet the criteria]
Reason/comments: Please consider this site as a valid portal. In 1813 in Trieste there was a fierce battle between the army of Napoleon and the Austro-Hungarian Empire, supported by the British naval fleet. A troop of 800 French soldiers barricaded himself on the hill of San Giusto, while the British ships from the Gulf heavily bombed the city. The Napoleonic army surrendered and left the city, but in some historical buildings of the city are still traces of that battle. / Vi chiedo di considerare valido questo portale. Nel 1813 a Trieste ci fu una dura battaglia tra l'esercito napoleonico e l'impero austroungarico, affiancato dalla flotta navale inglese. Una truppa di 800 soldati francesi si asserraglio sul colle di San Giusto, mentre dal golfo le navi inglesi bombardarono pesantemente la città. L'esercito napoleonico si arrese e lasciò la città, ma in alcuni edifici storici della città rimangono ancora le tracce di quella battaglia.

I believe this is a valid portal for its historical and educational value.
I hope you can reconsider your decision, thank you.
Other than blacking out the buildings, this was exactly what I saw. It was a good thing since the apartments where I live are nothing worth looking at.
The difficulties I have had so far, is always remembering the back and app-switch buttons are reversed from the DNA. The symbols are not associated with the same letters and no more return key in text messages or GroupMe. The soft button to switch apps is a little bit of a stretch, one handed. It would also be nice if #Ingress scaled the menus and buttons better.
Though, the difficulties are nothing I won't forget with time. The Note 4 being noticeably faster than the DNA, the stylus, and the bigger screen are why I wanted this beast.
I'm thinking about writing a piece (for Medium or similar) about this experience. I'm wondering a few things, and would love to open this up to a wider discussion:
1. Is it your experience that women who play Ingress, regardless of whether there are equal numbers as males in your community, are treated as respected and valued players?
2. Have you ever seen female ingress players trolled/harassed in the way some other female gamers in other gaming communities have been? If so, what have you witnessed among Ingress players?
3. If your experience has largely been one of equality/respect among players, why do you think that is? Does it have to do with how the game is played? If so, how?
I am not going to quote anyone without their explicit permission first; feel free to discuss without feeling like I'm going to use what you say without consent. Thanks!
Being labeled, "The best quarterback ever." Wouldn't you want to clear your name? The problem is he can't. Is it possible to imagine any seasoned NFL player did not know the ball in their hands was different? I might not say anything at the time, but I would own up to it. "Yeah, but I thought it was me feeling good."
Then, I would seriously overpay a friend to follow my phone with the best video recorder, and sue the crap out of the person and employer that leaked my "dick pic" or sext text affair.
