The First Saturday in Bonn, Germany was great.

We made a lot of pictures of happy people unter at nice weather: photos.app.goo.gl/vRUTQvC6NMt1mDJm8

The local POCs ( @schmuul and @EinfachAleks ) did a great job at organizing swag and do a fast registration on site.

What was a downer at this day was the performance of Niantic.

  1. A lot of agents weren't able to hack media from the registration portal.
  2. They mismatched the timezones so the registration portal and restocking portal went online an hour later than scheduled.

I know that the restock portal is a "nice to have". But since I was temporarily out of resonators, I would have appreciated this "nice to have", but I had to leave earlier in order to take care of my children at home.

But on a 3x AP Saturday it can make a lot of difference if you start an hour earlier or later, just to fit your actions in the measured time frame.

NIA OPS does usually a great job. The last FS-events in our region worked flawless as it concerned this backend side support. But it's sad that there isn't anyone who can fix a timezone problem for several European sites within 10 or 20 minutes. This destroys a lot of trust that was built up in the last years by POCs .

A short notice that somebody looked after that problem and learnt a lesson would be nice.
