Why isn't First Saturday stat gathering automated?
Agents at First Saturday hack a "registration portal" to sign in. Then agents hand their phone to a POC who enters their stats into a spreadsheet manually. They are trusted not to do anything until the start time - this is an honor system. At the end of the activity window agents repeat the manual entry process. This process is fraught with opportunity for human error and cheating. Our stats are available in the database and are accessible by Niantic.
Niantic should automatically capture the stats of all agents who have hacked the registration portal, both at start time and stop time. Results could be displayed in a shared read-only spreadsheet. The POCs work hard getting the event organized, but in this age they should not have to do data entry. They are reading the output from Niantics scanner and manually entering it into a laptop (twice). There's got to be a way to automate this!
