Unfortunately, this candidate is too close to another Portal to bring it online at this time.

Installed onto my Nexus 5 no problems.  Analyzes perfectly. Unable to make selections to clean.  Tried a second analysis and found while it's still analyzing I can check the boxes.  But still unable to make selections afterwards.

Not so much a single portal appeal, but an appeal to speed up the review process or find one that can keep up with submission flow.

I continue to submit 2 to 3 portals a day.  All unique and new submissions.  You are down to reviewing (Approving or Rejecting) maybe just 1 every 3 days.  Needless to say, your back log must be growing like crazy.  Seeing as the last reviewed portal mail I received was for a portal I submitted on December 1st.  That's over 2 months.  And that gap continues to grow.

What where you thinking when you came up with the numbers required for each "accepted portal" (Seer) badges?  Didn't you think it through?  Didn't you plan for the massive deluge of portal submissions as badge seekers flood you with submissions?  Did you not even think of the consequences when the game came out of closed beta and anyone could join up? 

Well +NIA Ops?  What are you going to do?  Are you working to fix this, or are you going to just turn a blind eye to this thinking we will forget?

But they do have an infinite resource.  Just as they allow the players to "locate" portals.  They can let us "Verify" portals.  In other words, crowd source the process.  This can be done in many ways.  

One way is a forum (Or map).  Where all submissions are listed and players can vote ("Approve" or "Reject") on them.  Once the +/- hit a certain number than it get's pushed to them for final review.  This would work for portal edits and invalid reports.  It would also give the submitter/reporter an opportunity to plead their case.  

You can also give greater weight to agents who've had more submissions/edits/reports accepted.  (In game badges?)

As we would use our agent names (Email) they could set it so that you can only review portals within a zone based on your in-game activity.  This would prevent players in one area from trying to influence portals on the other side of the world.
 
If anyone has ever worked with Google's Map Maker, you would be familiar with the idea I'm suggesting.

- La Madeleine
- San Antonio, TX, USA
- Lat/long(s): 29.470956, -98.463007 - Appeal category: New submission appeal
- Reason/comments: I would remind +NIA Ops  that you have already made the decision to accept portals on unique architecture, despite it not being locally owned (IE, is a franchise) here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117745284629184861636/posts/EXQTrCGEPn5 

And to this, I say you must hold true to this decision and approve this portal or delete all the watermill portals you have added.

This is a chain restaurant, but the architecture of this location stands out among the rest, and given the relatively low Portal density in the area, we've decided to accept this candidate.
