Because G+ polls don't give me 6 choices, I'm posting a poll via +1s. Which Ingress Faction and Pokemon GO team are you on?

A poll, if you will.. or rather, if you dare.

If you're here, you have 1x, so speak up, those of you who've hit multiples of 150 days.

EDIT: to be clear, now that I see what people are asking. For any given portal,
2x = 300 days
3x = 450 days
4x = 600 days
5x = 750 days
6x = 900 days

Yes, a 6x guardian holder is rumored to exist.

Portal Appeal Type: New Portal Rejection
Portal Title: Tesla Motors Factory
Portal Location: 37.492356, -121.946212

This portal submission is the factory building for the former GM, then former GM/Toyota joint venture NUMMI, in Fremont, California. The building was used for decades to produce millions of cars, but in 2010, was slated to be decommissioned as the US was in a protracted economic slump.

Tesla Motors was in need of a plant from which they could build their electric vehicles, so when this factory became available, they were able to buy it for a mere $42M USD. This turned out to be the break Tesla needed to get their manufacturing process off the ground, while at the same time, Fremont was not stuck with a white elephant that would take many millions of dollars to dismantle.

This portal submission commemorates the entrepreneurial spirit of all of these companies and should be reviewed based on its historic significance.

Ready for #portalappealreview  100 - 38.

If Oracle Arena seats are too expensive, get tickets to watch the game at Alameda Theatre! Go Warriors!

When invites were business cards with hand-written codes.

Yeah, GDC, though I think 2014.

Thanks for the offers, but I'm going to hang onto them. Maybe stick em in a red capsule.

First time in an all-electric bus. It runs well, and is silent when stopped. The driver said he felt too isolated from the road, though, and said there was no heater available, just A/C.

I liked it, overall. Welcome to the future!
