Since November 2012, we've been impressed by your Portal submissions and edits, and we've certainly been busy reviewing more than 24 million submissions to date. These contributions have made the world of Ingress what it is today, and we couldn't have done it without you.

As part of the process of establishing Niantic as an independent company (https://plus.google.com/+Ingress/posts/GVvbYZzWyTT) and laying the groundwork for the future of Ingress, we will making some changes in the process of how we handle Portal submissions and edits. We will be temporarily suspending new Portal submissions in order to focus on the numerous Portal candidates already submitted but not yet reviewed and to work on building new systems to allow for more timely and scalable processing of both submissions and edits.

As we process submissions, we'll be focusing on areas with low Portal density first. For other areas we'll be focused on finding the highest quality, coolest, and most exceptional candidates.

While we will continue to take Portal edits, please help us by only submitting those that are absolutely necessary to add missing data or fix an incorrect location, title or description. Takedown requests will be similarly prioritized, and will only be accepted if absolutely necessary.

We are very excited about our new beginning and the opportunity it gives us to rebuild our systems to improve speed and quality. Stay tuned for more information in coming weeks.

When we launched Ingress and gave Agents the ability to detect and submit new Exotic Matter Portals, we had no idea how prolific Agents would be in identifying and submitting these very special locations. We have worked hard to process these submissions but, despite our efforts, find that the submission rate has outpaced our ability to process them.  As part of our process of renewing Ingress for the years ahead, we will be temporarily suspending new Portal submissions for a period of time while we work on processing the backlog and on designing new and more efficient ways to evaluate Portal submissions and edits.  

We thank all of you who have learned to see the world with new eyes and spot the Portals lurking all around us and we look forward to making the process of discovery and exploration even more fun and satisfying in the future.
