Second Sunday is a great idea to build our community but it puts pressure on those of us who create them. We need to have, say, 180 missions a year. Each new year will motivate us to add more banners and build up the game.
Saying the authoring tool can't handle the load is a cop out. Give us API access and we'll create the long overdue editor.
Not necessary. Just change the limit. Should take 5 minutes.
Because people still do them. I have 2 in Sydney, Australia from 2018 that I created after I'd done a few work trips there and wanted some more. Every so often I get a thank you message via comms. Why delete old missions when people still do them?
The bannergress TG channel has a steady flow of requests to take missions offline. Almost all of them look like beautiful missions I would have liked to have done.
#1 reason missions are taken off line is the author wanted to make a new mission and didnt have space.
Please bump the limit, Niantic
