As a reminder, I am not the Niantic Global Community Manager. But with Andrew trying hard to get his Aurora Glyphing badge, I am picking up the slack. But let’s do this AMA thing anyway. Some reminders:
- Like the real GCM, I can’t help with individual situations, but unlike him, I can speculate wildly. I’m pretty sure the reason your friend was banned was because they saw a screenshot from IITC once. Hope that helps.
- Unlike the real GCM, I can’t go back and get answers from our product teams. So that frees me to just make stuff up. For example, the next version of Prime will have the ability to make fields look like bacon, but only if they originate from portals with a toast beacon.
- I can’t help bring an event to your town, but if you ask enough times I will gladly tell you that yes, the NL1331 van is coming to a Denny’s 30 miles east of Albuquerque.
- If you want actual answers, please go to Niantic’s official channels (the Ingress Support page or the official Community Forums or just rant on Reddit).
