If you discovered and submitted a Portal, and it got approved and added to the world, you then get x amount of AP, as well as +1 on the progress for the Seer Achievement.

It could be, however, that the Portal is a duplicate of an existing Portal, or it is "invalid", which means other Agents are going to flag it for removal.

I want to know the following:

  1. How much AP do you get for each successful Portal submission?
  2. If the Portal gets removed, do you lose the AP you have gained?
  3. If the Portal gets removed, do you lose the +1 progress on the achievement?

Also - and this is the main reason I am asking this question - if you do lose AP or achievement progress due to the Portal being removed, and either one of these would make you no longer meet the minimum requirements for your current access level, will you get demoted?

1 Answer 1

  1. You gain 1000 AP for each portal submission that is accepted (and a key of the portal).
  2. You won't lose this AP if portal is removed
  3. You won't lose the +1 on the Seer/Pioneer/Explorer stats

And as subsidiary answer, you can't lose neither AP nor badge requirements.


  • for a photo successfully submitted and accepted for a portal, you gain 500 AP.
  • for a successfull edit for portal location, title, description you gain 200AP
