Two years ago today I received an email from Niantic Project Operations.

I little earlier I had seen an XKCD cartoon about Ingress and gone searching. Intrigued, I applied for an invite.

Just before midnight yesterday I made level 16. Happy smurfday present to myself.

It's been an amazing two years. From Operation Button Mashing to my impromptu Operation Cronx Flip. Leading teams at two anomalies (thanks and apologies to my team members). Seeing Croydon grow from just 2 portals (linked to Brighton!) to what it is today.

Thanks to all the smurfs and frogs who have made the last two years possible. You're all bloody crazy, but I love some of you dearly.

Next? I still have a few badges to work on...

Ready for #PortalAppealReview 18 to 2

Type of appeal: Rejected new submission
Portal title: formless Immeasurable Death
Location: 51.49790,-0.11504

https://www.ingress.com/intel?ll=51.49790,-0.11504&z=19  

https://www.google.com/maps/@51.49790,-0.11504,20z

One of a series of artworks along the Virgil Road rail tunnel marking the life and works of William Blake - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Blake - who lived nearby from 1790 to 1800.

More information on the artworks: http://www.southbankmosaics.com/projects/blakes-lambeth/

The location is hard to see on satellite view due to trees and the rail viaduct, but is clear on streetview. I choose this artwork out of the whole set to submit as I liked the name and it's at the end of the tunnel and hence will have fewest problems with GPS. 

Access is not a problem, these artworks are designed to be visited and seen. Nearest portal is around 30m away.

Apologies for the delay in response, Agent. We've reversed our decision here, and the Portal is now available for Hacking.

So I accidentally nuked myself. (genius)

Bought a hazmat team, what now?

The help says that they don't need to be used just owning one will clean up the radiation. Is this true and if so how long does this take to work?

When I was in a nuked tile and selected the hazmat team from the powerups menu they disappeared from the inventory. 

Are hazmats buggy?

Ready for #PortalAppealReview 16 to 0

Type of appeal: Rejected new submission
Portal title: The Salvation Army
Location: 51.43771,-0.10578

https://www.google.com/maps/@51.43771,-0.10578,20z

It's a Salvation Army hall. It's an active place of worship and a focus of local charitable activity.

http://www.salvationarmy.org.uk/west-norwood

Alongside high street with a broad pavement hence no problems with access. The nearest portal is over 100m away.

Thanks for the appeal. We've taken another look and decided to reverse our decision. Happy Hacking, agent.

Am I the only one who thinks that #recruitergate   is a cunning +NIA Ops  plan to improve the quality of the automated cheat detection scripts for dual accounting by giving them a much larger sample size to train the algorithms on?

I don't think they're so smart, they proved it multiple times, but i could be wrong. Anyway giving incentives to create multiple account just to spot more multiple accounts it's a dumb move unless they are completely sure this will train their algorithm so well they could get rid at least of all the new accounts.

Ready for #PortalAppealReview 17 to 0

Type of appeal: Rejected new submission
Portal title: John and Charles Wesley
Location: 51.51304,-0.12818

https://www.ingress.com/intel?ll=51.51304,-0.12818&z=19

https://www.google.com/maps/@51.51304,-0.12818,20z

This is a commemorative plaque on the wall of the former West Street Chapel - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/West_Street_Chapel - recording the fact that John Wesley http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Wesley - and his brother Charles - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Wesley - preached here. As the brothers were founders of Methodism the location has historical significance. 

The building is no longer a place of worship, but is now offices, not residential. The nearest portal is about 35m away. Access is safe as there is a pavement along both sides of the road.
