yeah give us ama and roadmap.
Roadmap has not been forgotten about.
I dunno - when I feel like it.
I wish there was a “Haha” react on the forums.
(me too 🤣)
Should we read this as "**** you"?
There is a "LOL" reaction that can be activated 👀
It sounded more like a "Soon™" to me. 😉
I mean if you want....
But no, it's Friday (for me) and I'm havin' a little fun.
I suspect "Soon" won't go over any better?
With "soon"s taking months or sometimes infinities, I'm not feelimg funny on Ingress forums anymore, sorry. There's generally not much to feel good about in this game lately. Except for a patch with a single bugfix, lol.
I didn’t take it as that way.
Agents always say about better communication. More fluid, casual conversation like this is surely better than “Standard Niantic Response 102”. (101 is “Soon™️“ and is required at least once a month I’m sure. 😂)
Though maybe if you could say before the end of the year that would be cool @NianticThia
I'm sorry you don't feel that good about the game, @1valdis. 💚💙 I know we are all super passionate about it.
One of the things I do to release stress or take a breather is to (try to) be funny (I mentioned this is my welcome post). Not everyone's cup of tea I know.
I am doing my best to improve and be impactful where I can and I'm hopeful/optimistic about things that are being worked on and the things I'm trying to do for Q4.
That being said...
Do we need a NianticThia’s Friday Destress/Jokes thread every week? I’m down for that.
But to keep things fair, Tintino & Lola should get a similar one too. 👍
Also you keep posting that it’s Friday but for me it’s (nearly) Saturday so…
@PkmnTrainerJ Ugh, I know - I did a "(for me)" the first time but feel kinda silly doing it every time. I probably should?
If Agents really want to be that picky about it (but we never usually are 🤔) I’m sure they will be. Do whatever suits.
Also, this thread got quite off topic but I don’t really mind.
.... but I answered 😅
Not an exact answer, no.
But - I have stuff cooking for Q4.
Oh gosh, I hope I get the right things out...
I am sure Agents will find some subtle way of telling you if you don’t.
"Hybrid FS, please, hybrid FS..."
You'll want to be sure FS feedback is sent to FevGames!
Wonderful! Just today, in my organiser chat, we were discussing whether it would be convenient to simultaneously allow players to hack a registration portal themselves and/or send in a photo and other requirements for participating and receiving a medal online. And we agreed that all that was left was to convince Niantic to re-enable 200-250 registration portals in different cities every month, because not all event organizers would be prepared to run online and offline events simultaneously. It is up to the organiser to decide whether to run FS in a hybrid format or online only, when filling in the registration form.
In any case, we have a FewGames representative in our chat who has been hearing these thoughts for almost half a year now 😄
I just came in here to say: You are a goddamn queen with your comments, Thia! I freaking love them and thanks for being so proactive and open with your communication. 😄
Just wanted to be included x.x
Have a great weekend y'all!
@NianticThia your replies are appreciated and very welcome nevertheless. But, I hope such communication from you as in this topic, will eventually come to the other important topics in General section too, and such activity of yours is not one-off.
Bro, it'll be fine, have a good weekend you too :)
A bit of levity is fine, but when we have multiple topics without updates for days or weeks..
Ie, stuck portal submissions, foursquare fiasco, game lag.
It gets ppl upset when there is time to post jokes but no time to update ppl on important stuff.
That is exactly what I had in mind, but looks like some people would rather have fun of me instead of trying to understand.
@NianticThia IMO the jokes aren't really funny while there are much more important topics waiting to be covered by you.
There is a lot that can be activated but you know...
Good time to, once again, plug the discussion I started long ago with some nice features that could be enabled on the forum 👀
Just bumping this again, as the Wayfarer AMA responses are due tomorrow.
That previous "Road Map" was really useful/helpful. Looking forward to the next one.
