Just had three Portal Location Appeals rejections fairly close together the past couple days. All were at least 100-200 m. away from the action object location. For example, the church portal, which had a picture of the sign at the road, is currently positioned beyond a fence that separates the church from a public walking trail after traversing the driveway that runs length of the front church and fellowship hall and then the parking lot. No other portals in that area. The Pottery Alligator at the Coastal Discovery Museum had been moved to a new location - at first I thought it was just gone until I found it in the new spot. For that one I even had a new picture with the GPS location tags at the right spot. And it moves from a congested spot with other portals to a good bit more open area next to a big open field used for overflow parking. Makes me wonder if everyone's Location Edits have just been mass rejected.

It's a good question +Robert Simpson. I had one of my first submissions rejected in Delmont, PA  and it was nowhere near any other portals. Niantic said it was within 200m of another portal.  Not even close.  Happily, I did receive a notice last night that a portal was accepted that I sent in when I first started playing back in September.

I just updated the Endgame Wikia to add the missing solutions to a couple of Challenge puzzles, including "What's in the Box?!" and "Sleeping".

I hope you don't mind us using the hint you gave in the comment you made (https://plus.google.com/+TylerHinman/posts/GgU1duxtett) on the latter one (http://www.AncientSocieties.com/sleeping/).

Thanks!

DO NOT POST - RETIRED North America  - 
 
Portal Edit Appeal (multiple edits rejected)

Ready for #PortalAppealReview 28 to 1

This is not a Retirement Flag area - that would be an area where an employee would be given a flag when they leave their final job.

The official name is South Park Flag Retirement Plaza. It's one of various places in Allegheny County, PA where U.S. flags are "retired".  You can find the name in a number of places:
☞ Allegheny County Facebook event: https://www.Facebook.com/events/146840572167121/146840575500454/
☞ Google Maps: http://goo.gl/maps/oLhIW
☞ Google Search: https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q=%22south+park+flag+retirement%22

Address: 3689 Wooded Gap Road, South Park PA 15129

Thanks!

For a couple folks asking where the pictures from #Ingress   #FirstSaturday  get posted, they are on the event page, which is sometimes harder to find after the fact. Here's the link to the photo gallery: https://plus.google.com/events/gallery/cr542e8f07dqdl0rangkoh3acro?sort=6

Pennsylvania Bacon Festival Tour

And reading the comments on the OP, +November Lima indicates that there will be coming to Pittsburgh soon. That's a big deal because it's the primary mobile vehicle globally for Google's +Niantic Project. So if you know of anyone interested in Mobile Gaming be sure to let them know about +Ingress and +Endgame: Ancient Truth. A great way to start would be to attend tomorrow's (April 4) or next month's (May) "First Saturday" event: https://plus.google.com/events/cr542e8f07dqdl0rangkoh3acro

+T Mobile It took about an hour (~9:54 to 10:57 am) for the PIN number that your support rep. Deeana sent to show up.  Fortunately she was able to authenticate the account using the account number, address, last payment amount, etc.  If you could send the PIN within a minute or two you could probably save your reps some time on their calls, which was almost 21 minutes total in this case. Not much point in sending it long after the call is over. (I had received another SMS message with a Twitter mobile notification during the call, so incoming messages seemed to be working OK.)

I had to call in for support.  They're using a password now for security, but if you don't have a password they send you a PIN via SMS.

You're not supposed to lean over the monitor to see it. Then it would be upside down and backwards. Use your X-ray vision.
