@HPWUTeam @HPWUrobert

@hpwulola @HPWUblue @Hpwu anybody

Who can or will help.

It's a true calamity that 112.6 square miles of Minneapolis/St.Paul have been missing all POIs in the red areas since mid December 2020.

Players in these are are tired of no solution no resolution. We'd love to have some official help!

This is the link to the open source map built by local player.

We have provided location specific info for Pois that are missing in HPWU, but still exist in POGO and Ingress. We have extended invitations to our local discord to discuss issue off the official forum.

There was a test in spring, a few POIs reappeared temporarily. Then nothing.

@CliftonMcNish @Applewood85

@MplsKen @FionaTheHippo


And anyone and everyone in the Twin Cities who would like to be heard on this issue.

    Has anyone looked at OpenStreetMap data? Maybe someone “contributed” data to OpenStreetMap that designated these areas in a way that blanks out the POI data when synced? Just thinking out loud…

    Please help! I used to play all of the time, but without POIs it just isn't feasible. I don't have that much time to play on the knight bus to send gifts to friends and can't collect enough energy off the ground to make it possible.

    @Owlx do you have a list of which portals are missing? Perhaps have list created?

    Also are you on Discord?

    @AltarielValice yes. I'm on Discord (by the same name) most of the big HPWU servers. Most active on the local server and here. There are soo many POIs missing that there is not a list of each missing location. The map we build has many layers and is done to specific streets. If it's in red area it's gone and had been gone for 6 months.
