Some quick thoughts on PokemonGo and Ingress:
I went to a local Ingress farm location last night. It is in an area that generally has ample parking available. I could usually park, walk, upgrade and glyph. Last night there was NO parking. The entire road on both sides was lined with parked cars.
When I looked in the park, I saw no fewer than 40 people standing and sitting in groups. This was at 2230!!!! They were all playing PokemonGo. Laughing, having a good time, yelling back and forth to each other and whatnot. I heard someone call out that they caught a Snorlax, heard others calling out other Pokemon they'd caught (or hatched? I dunno). PokemonGo doesn't have the team component like Ingress does from what I've seen. Clearly, there are similarities with regard to socialising with other players. They go out with their friends in large groups to play, yet that team component is certainly lacking.
I've seen PokemonGo get more publicity in a week than I've seen Ingress get in 3.5 years. I've seen more reports of trespassing and vandalization with regard to PokemonGo players this week than in the last 3.5 years with Ingress.
I'm not sure if PGo players realise that their actions do and will continue to have an effect on its predecessor game and its players. I know the PGo crowd is, in general, younger and less mature. I hope for the sake of both games, especially Ingress, that players of both games learn to be smarter about choices they make in how, where, and when they play.
-A poorly lit park (in the middle of a neighborhood) isn't the place for 40+ people to hang out at 2200-2300h while loudly gloating about which Pokémon they just caught/hatched.
-Hiding in the bushes behind a PD (at night especially) isn't wise.
-Vandalizing an informational sign with spray paint isn't cool.
Use your brain. If it seems like a bad idea, it probably is. Please stop putting the players of both games at risk due to your poor decision-making.
