Portal title: Large Ugly Dinamo Buldog Compass 1986

City, region and country: Zagreb, Grad Zagreb, Croatia

Lat/long: 45.78663/16.004944

Ingress intel link: https://intel.ingress.com/intel?ll=45.78663,16.004944&z=20&pll=45.786623,16.004915

Reason/comments:
The portal was made by the guy who is full of hateherd towards the football club Dinamo Zagreb and their fans Bad Blue Boys. Because of that, he called the mural ugly and wrote "30 years of vandalism" in the description. I tried to change that with editing the title to "Dinamo Zagreb Trafostanica" and editing the description (I can't remember exactly what I wrote in the description).
This is not the only example of this. This agent (named mrki008) has submited many Dinamo related murals and named them ugly etc.

Repost (now with all information in post)

Appeal Category: Rejected Takedown
Portal Title: American Eagle Route
City, Region and Country: Lelystad, Flevoland, Netherlands
Lat/Long: 52.410885 / 5.352924
Ingress Intel Link: http://intel.ingress.com/intel?ll=52.410885,5.352924&z=15&pll=52.410885,5.352924

Reason/comments:

This portal does not exist anymore and is not accassible for public, it is a sanctuary site/area for wild animals of Oostvaardersplassen 365 days a year. All around this site are signs on gates and within that states "Do not Enter sanctuary area" (see photo's of the signs). I asked forrest guards but they also said that I could not even go there with their support/walking along side.

Also this route/sign has been taken down the sign is no longer at this place (due to sanctuary reasons), included 360 panorama of location taken last September 2018 by local player who trespassed for it.

The only way players can access this portal is to trespass the sanctuary area

Picture 1: Portal Key
Picture 2 : Reject Mail
Picture 3 : 360 panorama of location laken last September 2018
Pictures 4~6 Photo's of location closed gates (365 days year) with signs "Do not Enter Sanctuary area"
Picture 7: IITC map view of Area Pink = Sanctuary / Green = accessible / Blue = public bicycle path

Please remove it ASAP. +NIA Ops

Appeal Category: Portal Removed

Portal Title: Plaque Atelier 4 : Les Fourmis

City, Region and Country: Sonchamp, Ile-de-France, France

Lat/Long: 48.62813/1.881754

Ingress Intel Link: http://www.ingress.com/intel?ll=48.62813,1.881754&z=19&pll=48.62813,1.881754

Reason/comments:
This portal was removed from the network today. We are wondering why.
Trying to adress a few of the common reasons for removal of portals :
- Interest :the portal has obvious cultural interest, explaining local fauna and flora, here describing some fun facts of the life of ants.
- Existence :the portal exists. However, it's impossible to take photos of it at this time because the place is closed in winter for maintenance (might be the reason for reports ? but it's open the whole rest of the year !).
- Accesibility : the portal is located in a natural reserve, run by the ONF (national office for forests) called "espace rambouillet" : http://www.espacerambouillet.fr/, and opened to the public 9 months out of 12. The entrance has a fee, much similar to a portal in a zoo or an amusement park.

Attached are two photos, of the portal keys and the accesibility criterion of the place.

Would it be possible to review this removal +NIA Ops ? And have some kind of explanation about it or better, have this nice portal back in the network.

Thanks a lot,
