I can't think of how many times I've seen a rule added to the FEV Games page that essentially was sneaking in a rule at the last second. Sure, I can easily make 5000 AP to qualify for a badge but limiting the AP bonus to 500000 AP?
It was announced by at least May 29th?
We've tried to give as much notice as possible through the FevGames social media pages and the notifications channel in the FS Slack team where we advise organisers of all changes and to remind their attendees of the changes. We'll add this forum to the list of places to promote changes in.
I had no idea it was posted through those lines of social media. I have yet to help be a POC for FS but at least keep up with the details. I apologize if I'm presenting how the website showed new info incorrectly. I wish Niantic would have atleast added a "hey please note these new conditions about FS when you sign up for FS this month"
But it was an Update notification at the top of the conditions on fev and some news mentioned that.
Imho it was hard to not to know if one was involved into FS 🤨.
I'm running an upcoming FS. I knew about the 5000 minimum, but had no idea that the bonus AP was capped. Probably a case of information overload.
This is another case when all needed info is spread along 4 or 5 areas in the Fev. It doesn't help to get all necessary bits and pieces.
(That's another case why it would be nice to have at least links in one place like I mentioned
here https://community.ingress.com/en/discussion/comment/5290 )
We're working on it..
(Would be great to get some more likes on my posts so I can add proper links 😅)
The cap wasn't added until the last week of May. I understand this is from communication between Niantic and Fev Games. I'm more of stating Niantic about this so Fev Games isn't the messenger who gets stuck in the middle of this.
@cluelessness I tried to quote your message to see if that boosted your rating as well, but it turns out that I still can't quote at my level so I have the same problem as you and I have no idea if the quoting helps ratings either ;) But I did like it :D
For helping other it is helpfull to post links, but I can´t do it actually, too.
You need to like posts to increase your rating.
Edit: Doh it is the other way around.
