EOS Imprint Medal
Putting up an event that will require travel for most people who don't do portal scans on a major US holiday weekend with three days notice is just rude.
I understand that getting Ingress players to do free labor for Niantic is a big part of what keeps the game financially viable, but portal scans are boring, tedious, flaky, and contribute nothing to the game except the possibility of another way for your overeager graphic designers to trash it.
8000 points for gold is
8000 glyph patterns (is that complete glyphs or would someone get 4 points for getting 4 of 5 correct on a level 8?)
889 links over 1 km long (and thus not under a perma field)
320 fields over 50 KMU
500 portal scans
(Or of course mix and match the above.)
