12 High-Quality Airbnb Alternatives for Any Budget
With 60 million users, 600,000 hosts, and 2 million properties to choose from, Airbnb really is incredible. But it's not perfect, either. Sometimes all the properties in your budget will be booked up. Other times, you may not find exactly what you're looking for. In these cases, rather than reverting back to a characterless hotel,…

The problem is that the average #Pokémon player or the average person has no idea why these places are "Pokéstops". I can understand how someone going to a sacred property just to play a game might look bad. Maybe chasing Pokémon around these places is a bit crude. Y'all can decide that. So, let me explain why places like this are used in the game.

#Ingress. Ingress is a game that came out years ago. The object of Ingress is to capture "portals" that are placed around the entire globe. Ingress was designed to help you discover important places around you. Museums. Murals. Land marks. Coliseums. Statues. In the game, there are two teams. Enlightened and Resistance. Green and blue. As a player, you would travel to these important places, which are called "portals" and claim it as yours, making it your team's color. Overall, you are not only playing a game, helping Google add places of importance to Google Maps, but you are also learning about the town's history. You are learning about a museum in your city. You are learning about landmarks on Earth. You are finding new and important places around you. Some you may never have known existed.

The company that makes Pokémon Go is the same company that makes Ingress. What does this mean? This means that all these neat places I just talked about from Ingress, all these important place portals, all that location data was used in Pokémon. Every Ingress portal is a Pokéstop. The data was LITERALLY ripped from the Ingress game.

Why are people chasing make believe animals at a 9/11 memorial? Why are people trying to catch these creatures at Holocaust museums? Well, now you know.

I'll let you decide if it's wrong. I'll let you decide if it's okay in one game and wrong in another.

Backstory Research  - 
 
Here is something I am unsure of.

I've played Ingress since Beta. I play off and on and because of that, I am only level 9. I'm about to hit 10. I digress.

Does anything we do as players effect the storyline? After all these years, I've never actually kept up with the story. I've only opened the app. and played.

The world of Ingress is decaying
Dear +Niantic​​ or even better dear +John Hanke​​,

I write you this open letter because I’m worried. And I am afraid that, which might show from the the +1’s, comments and re-shares of this post, I am not alone.

First of all I want to start of congratulating you and the whole Niantic staff on the overwhelming success of Pokémon GO. This game has in no time succeeded in what many parents, sports clubs and governments have not been able to do for years; dragging youngsters away from their game consoles and bringing them outside. Outside to play, to move, to socialise with others and also to explore; explore the beauty of all things outside of the walls of their homes.

But the counter side of this success comes with my fear. Unfortunately with the great success comes the downside and we see the effects of large groups of people playing outside. There is the trashing of public places, loudness during evening hours, trespassing and I could name many more.

Because of these negative sides of the success the public is wondering; what are all these people doing here and why exactly here. So these people learn about the Pokémon GO game and realise that their favourite spots have turned into magnets to players collecting items.

That is where the trouble starts, these people start appealing and those appeals, I am afraid, results in the removal of PokeStops. These Stops are, as everyone knows by now, portals from your other successful game Ingress. As far as I can see now the removal of a PokeStop also results in the removal of an Ingress portal. A portal which has most likely been there for years, causing no or hardly any trouble.

So here is what I would like you to explain to me and with that to the whole Ingress community. Is it true that the removal of a PokeStop results in the removal of an Ingress portal? And if so; Is it really necessary to remove Ingress portals as a result of the success of Pokémon GO, thereby punishing a large group of mostly social and well behaving Ingress players throughout the world?

The world around us is not what it seems. Our future is at stake and you must choose a side.The world around us is not what it seems, but it seems to be decaying rapidly.

I sincerely hope that you will read this public letter and make an end to my fear and that of many fellow Ingress players.

Kind regards, Joris Arts

#PokémonGo is becoming a giant ad. for businesses. That's pathetic. Like the game or not, I wish that wasn't happening.

Google, you're one of the richest companies on the planet. Why use this game to advertise?

The downside, I predict it now, the players (some of the most ignorant people you'll never meet) will try to explain to us how the ads. are a good thing. Start offering discounts to players and they'll act blind to it.
