- An invalid Portal
- A Portal edit

Please use the submission template at the end of this post for your appeal. Any posts not in this format will be removed. Any posts containing more than one portal appeal will be removed. Please submit one appeal per post.

Appeal Category: Portal Removed
Portal Title: Hair Style
City, Region and Country: Antony, Hauts-de-Seine, France
Lat/Long: 48.748714/2.303843
Ingress Intel Link: https://ingress.com/intel?ll=48.748714,2.303843 Reason/comments: great decoration on the front of the hairdressing salon, this portal has probably been reported by the other faction only because I reach it from my home... They prefer to fight with fake edit requests and false reports rather than fight loyally on the ground in game... Please bring back this portal in game. Thanks a lot.

Appeal Category: Portal Removed
Portal Title: Taney Parish Centre
City, Region and Country: Dundrum, Dublin 14, Ireland
Lat/Long: 53.290791,-6.238519

The Parish Centre is a community hall (actually, has about 4 different halls as well as a snooker club and coffee/tea shop) and is situated in the grounds of Taney Parish Church. The original Parochial Hall was built in 1898 and the new building was finished in 1991 and opened by the (then) President of Ireland.

Here's a link to a book describing its history: https://books.google.com/books?id=JplXDwAAQBAJ&pg=PT148

Here's some links on the Taney Parish website describing the activities available to the community:
http://www.taneyparish.ie/content.php?id=15
http://www.taneyparish.ie/content.php?id=18
http://www.taneyparish.ie/content.php?id=10

I've provided a pic from Intel showing an outline of the Parish Centre. I've also provided a series of photos showing the location of the Parish Centre entrance (where the portal was located) as well as the photo that was available in Intel. Finally, I've photos of the newest brochure (anyone can simply pick it up the foyer).

Appeal Category: Rejected Takedown
Portal Title: Геологический памятник ''Белорусский динозавр''
City, Region and Country: near Praleski, Minsk region, Belarus
Lat/Long: 54.120777,27.166628
Ingress Intel Link: https://www.ingress.com/intel?ll=54.120777,27.166628&z=17&pll=54.120777,27.166628

Reason/comments: The portal represents a rock formation which can be interpreted as a dinosaur. This rock was demolished some time ago. A Google Map has 2 spheres near a portal which clearly show that the rock formation is not there anymore.
The closest sphere - https://www.google.com/maps/@54.1207174,27.1667631,3a,75y,134.64h,97.39t/data=!3m8!1e1!3m6!1sAF1QipPd-d13uviZwvPYbIRZNryLgXqCAGxnI4OTSZPH!2e10!3e11!6shttps:%2F%2Flh5.googleusercontent.com%2Fp%2FAF1QipPd-d13uviZwvPYbIRZNryLgXqCAGxnI4OTSZPH%3Dw203-h100-k-no-pi-0-ya125.130226-ro-0-fo100!7i8192!8i4096

Appeal Category: Portal rejection
Portal Title: Albert Gokelaere
City, Region and Country: 95130 Franconville, France
Lat/Long: 48.985076, 2.229729
Reason/comments: candidate is too close to an existing Portal

The location of the existing portal that is close is not good and could be adjusted :
Portal Title: Chevaux Sur Le Mur
Lat/Long: 48.98509, 2.229626
Ingress Intel Link: https://www.ingress.com/intel?ll=48.98509,2.229626&z=17&pll=48.98509,2.229626
and his real location that corresponds to 100% of his photo is: 48.985039, 2.229453 (google street view: https://goo.gl/maps/YS9ycYwJfTz).

hoping that the correction with the good location can unlock the situation

Appeal Category: Rejected Photo Addition
Portal Title: Camo Ventilation Tubes
City, Region and Country: Surry Hills, NSW, Australia
Intel Link: https://www.ingress.com/intel?ll=-33.887887,151.205973&z=18

The photo submitted is another angle of these Camo Ventilation Tubes, and that is simply it. This is probably the first photo submission to come back after four months and it was a given that once you left portal photo submissions to the OPR community, even the most basic, obvious edits, additions and the most worthy of portals wouldn't even be positively considered by someone with half a brain. I haven't had any issues with portal photo submissions (apart from that one bus interchange, which was overruled) but this is the second portal photo out of hundreds that have been rejected.

If you can't address the monkeys, don't leave these decisions solely to them.

Appeal Category: Rejected Portal Takedown
Portal Title: Dr. Jávorszky Ödön emléktábla
City, Region and Country: Vác, Hungary
Lat/Long: 47.783686,19.148236
Ingress Intel Link: https://www.ingress.com/intel?ll=47.783686,19.148236&z=15&pll=47.783686,19.148236

Reason/comments:
I would like to report a portal which does not meet the candidate Portal criteria. The portal was deployed via malicious player intentionally on to wrong place. The portal is INSIDE the hospital and this may disturb the work of those who work there. There is an agent, who frequently stops in front of the hospital with his car, to capture these portals, he is blocking the driveway, and this may cause delay for the ambulance.

Could you please remove the portal which does not meet the candidate Portal criteria???

Portal Title: Оружие Викингов
City, Region and Country: Samara, Samarskaya oblast, Russia
Lat/Long: 53.190175,50.26338
Ingress Intel Link: https://www.ingress.com/intel?ll=53.190175,50.26338&z=17&pll=53.190175,50.26338
Reason/comments: Dear +NIA Ops, please remove this invalid portal that does not meets requirements. Portal is named as Оружие Викингов (Vikings weapon), but there is no any weapons there, and especially the Vikings. We see on portal photo only rusty garden knife and ordinary fire axe placed on a piece of particle board, so this portal is fake and should be removed.
