Greetings, I have a question, in my agent profile I have the Paragon medal, but here in the Forum, I have not received the Tracker badge, could you help me, I think it was because I changed my CodeName.
I am also an awardee of the Paragon, and I also am not a tracker, as I got awarded for lots of reasons in the Paragon criteria. A tracker was awarded only to whom followed the story here on the forums, on the last tessellation event, and a few more.
TL;DR: You don't need a tracker to get the Paragon.
I'm confused, I got Paragon because I recruited and helped participate other agents, but sadly I changed my CodeName and my faction, right after the Tessellation medals arrived, my mistake was not waiting for the tracker badge to be distributed here.
You don't get a tracker forum badge for recruiting agents. You do get the scanner paragon badge for recruiting agents. They are different things. If you earned a tracker badge on the forum for helping out the investigation, you also earned the paragon in the scanner. But earning paragon in the scanner (for recruiting) does not earn tracker on the forums.
I got Paragon for being the 1st Discoverer twice. I also got the 1st Discoverer badge here. But I wasn't super active in the Tesselation threads so I didn't get "Tracker" here.
They're all independent badges.
the point is that I was not the first discoverer, I got Paragon because I showed that I recruited agents and helped them participate in the Tessellation.
As far as I know, that should make me a creditor of the Tracker
I got Paragon because I showed that I recruited agents and helped them participate in the Tessellation.
But were you very active in the forums? Paragon does not require it, Tracker does. If you only posted finding a media piece, then that's not a Tracker worthy level. If you were posting discussion, talking about the challenges, helping others decode the puzzles etc, that's for Tracker.
A large number of the Paragon badges were awarded for "behind the scenes" or non-forum contributions. They do not justify a Tracker badge on the forum, unless you were present and visible here.
I got the Tracker badge for my contributions outside forum, in regional Telegram groups. Granted I would have also earned it through the finale but I was awarded before that.
Here's the link to my comment which got me the forum badge: https://community.ingress.com/en/discussion/comment/110994/#Comment_110994
But imo the point stands, Paragon badges were handed out a bit more generously than Tracker.
Suddenly this is my last option, I have tried entering my query to Ingress support, and I have made a couple of posts here in the forum, I will leave the Link of the Drive that I use as information to win Paragon, you could confirm if I deserve it or not tracker badge?
Thank you very much and sorry for the insistence
@DarkIightEC, In general @Perringaiden has already explained the criteria for the Tracker Badge pretty clearly. Sometimes the Tracker badge may seem to be awarded to contributions outside of the Forum. As in @ikaros02 's case. But it is only given after several steps of investigation and confirmation. Most of all, there were posts by you that meet the minimum criteria on the Forums AND the appeals for Tracker or Paragon were sent in before the final announcement deadline. Your insistence definitely confirms the value of the Tracker badge for the all the Truthseekers. Thank you for that and do keep an eye out for what may come in the future.
