Approve the Headless Horseman Mission Series!
Who doesn't love an awesome Ingress Mission Series? And where could you find a better location for one than historic Sleepy Hollow? The sister villages of Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow burst at the seams with history and art, and boast over 100 portals. Easily accessible by train from NYC and at the crossroads of every major highway, we are the ultimate suburban destination for incredibly fun and rewarding Ingress gameplay.
And so with this in mind, we submitted a 30-part MIssion Series featuring an amazing piece of artwork depicting the iconic "Headless Horseman".
Half of the series was approved. The second half rejected on copyright grounds. And then rejected again. And again. BUT...*we have permission from the artist / copyright holder*, Bob Kehl. Repeat: WE HAVE PERMISSION, IN WRITING!. And yet, there is no way to note this during mission submission, and any sort of appeal to Niantic gets quickly lost in one of their many seemingly endless queues. We love Niantic and forgive them like we would family, but that doesn't lessen the extreme tragedy of the constant unjust rejection.
A rejection which is punctuated by weekly inquiries from Agents all over the region asking "Is it approved yet". No. No it is not approved.
But we will not give up! This Mission Series is too rad to abandon. And so, please add your support to this petition, in the hopes that it will get the attention of our friends at Niantic.
