A bit of levity is fine, but when we have multiple topics without updates for days or weeks..
Ie, stuck portal submissions, foursquare fiasco, game lag.
It gets ppl upset when there is time to post jokes but no time to update ppl on important stuff.
With "soon"s taking months or sometimes infinities, I'm not feelimg funny on Ingress forums anymore, sorry. There's generally not much to feel good about in this game lately. Except for a patch with a single bugfix, lol.
ADA Program has been reactivated.
Now that it's fixed, I'll talk to the team about what we can do for those who did an ADA program and got a JARVIS instead of an ADA. It is unlikely I will have an answer for you before Monday. I'm sorry about that. :(
Wonderful! Just today, in my organiser chat, we were discussing whether it would be convenient to simultaneously allow players to hack a registration portal themselves and/or send in a photo and other requirements for participating and receiving a medal online. And we agreed that all that was left was to convince Niantic to re-enable 200-250 registration portals in different cities every month, because not all event organizers would be prepared to run online and offline events simultaneously. It is up to the organiser to decide whether to run FS in a hybrid format or online only, when filling in the registration form.
In any case, we have a FewGames representative in our chat who has been hearing these thoughts for almost half a year now 😄
Well, they sure as f don't use the forums. Meanwhile I see updates and responses on twitter, but it has happened time and again.
During the last 'false positive' banwave in regards to a new iOS version, Brian was supposed to get back to us. After a week he replied to a tweet but the update in the topic never came, even after countless 'please update us' posts. Shameful ****.
I'm sorry you don't feel that good about the game, @1valdis. 💚💙 I know we are all super passionate about it.
One of the things I do to release stress or take a breather is to (try to) be funny (I mentioned this is my welcome post). Not everyone's cup of tea I know.
I am doing my best to improve and be impactful where I can and I'm hopeful/optimistic about things that are being worked on and the things I'm trying to do for Q4.
That being said...
I dunno - when I feel like it.
Good morning/afternoon/evening everyone!
The event is live and I have a couple of followup notes based on some of your questions here and in other spaces.
1) The event is live, yeay! If you are nervous about starting a Kinetic Capsule and it still being 8km instead of 2km, you can verify before starting a Program by looking at the Kinetic Capsule before you go into MANAGE interface. I'll add a screenshot from my phone after I get this posted. It will say 2km instead of 8km at the top.
2) Medal updating: if you completed enough Kinetic Programs during the initial Challenge in March, the popup you receive on screen may show Silver instead of Gold as both alerts are received but it can only display one. If you look at your Scanner, it should show the Gold tier.
3) Distance walked limit: The 40km limit is per-24 hour period and starts after you complete a Program, as a rolling 24 hour period.
If I redeem an 8km Program at 1100 (because I started it before the Challenge), I have 32km remaining. If I go out and finish a 2km Program at 1400 today, I will have 30km remaining. If I do no more walking, tomorrow at 1100 the 8km falls off and I have 38km remaining and at 1400, I am back to having the full 40km available. (I really hope that is not more confusing.)
There is a "LOL" reaction that can be activated 👀
