looks like my suggestion from Dec 2019, except you've got a stronger visual indicator between medal categories.
I'm tempted to "poke the bear" by asking you why your previous objections to other feature suggestions ("Niantic is busy, there aren't enough developers on Ingress, they don't have the bandwidth for this, etc...") do not apply to this feature suggestion.
Because what I'm suggesting uses existing implemented technologies, and would be a relatively straightforward adaption of pre-built components. i.e. It's bloody easy to do fast and cheaply.
And it would address a lot of concerns people have raised repeatedly over the years.
Also, to note your attempt to claim a double standard, I was very supportive of your suggestion, though my reponse was roughly the same breakup of categories as above.
many things I believe would be "bloody easy to do fast and cheaply", you **** down with those excuses.
but what do i know, all i have is a Computer Science degree... *shrug*
So do I, plus 25 years in the industry.
👀 get room already......
Yet Niantic has decided to put anomalies at the top for some time ago.
25 years of not knowing when you shut your mouth when told otherwise.
Acting like you know what Niantic thinks or wants when you're not an actual Niantic employee regardless of whatever things you heard or discussed in the past is in the past. Everyone else on here is on the same level of thought. You're no different and it really is annoying when people on here are presenting a genuine viewpoint.
That must become a thing.
old profile are just so messy now
If it's like Pikmin Bloom, it would be nice.
I like the idea to separate each type of element
I enjoy the mess and yet would also not mind a break up of badges.
But I want the paid bling and character badges at the top under the title "Supporter badges".
I'm sick of the holier than thou " badges must be earnt" crew. The pumpkin design was awesome! I love bling badges!!!!!
My profile my choice!!!!
I would not be as inclined to purchase commemorative occasion badges if they were going to be hidden by default. I happen to love the long colorful profile I have with badges all mixed together in a unique way (based on my agent history). If badges were grouped, ordered, and mostly hidden as this suggests most profiles would look less unique.
I would support a feature that allows agents to choose to hide badges they don't want displayed, but don't force that on us!
If we can separate out the character badges and cosmetic badges, from actual badges/events it would be nice. I'd buy/redeem some badges in that case. At the moment profile is all crapped up with cosmetic badgers. Can't see all mah pretty onxy badgers! Ya know, the ones we worked for, vs the ones we bought.
could be a paid feature to sort out badges and niantic would get some extra cash.
Since it's a UI requirement and it have huge workaround mostly they won't take .
Lot of new ideas are really amazing on this thread.
I really like the suggestion. Since the profiles look much neater that way! However, the badges should not be hidden like the mission medals. Only sorted better. It is best to have the anomaly medals at the top, just like before and then the normal gameplay medals. Everything else is welcome to be divided into categories as shown in the proposal!
Pretty much everything posted would use existing widgets based on the Mission Medals control, so there's very little "new tech" required. Sorting and linking, with a new screen like the Mission Medal view for each category. Should be relatively trivial work in terms of technical capability.
How many interns they got?
There is a lot the Ingress devs can do with their current tools available, but don't, or half baked them
And there are more bugs in the game than I can count.
While @Perringaiden has suggested a method, it might not be what the Ingress devs will implement. If at all.
We can just make our Christmas wish list of things like this to happen, and hope that the Elves in the Ingress production will work their magic
It most like comes down to something: is it worth investing time and resources making such option even if would be paid by a small amount of cmu ? probably not..
Having the profile breakup as a paid feature makes no sense as the profile is still reliable to the server.
Given the likely small amount of effort to actually do this, since it'd largley use built tech already, yes. And not even as a paid item. This would actually make some people more willing to buy face badges etc because they wouldn't have their gameplay badges cluttered up with random paid stuff.
I didn't like it when they pulled out the anomaly badges.
My profile is my "dna", some characters mark points in time, the order things are in is a factor for me.
