I entered the correct passcode at about 23:25 CET on 2019-12-09, so should be about 22:25 if the times on the table are in UTC.
you 're not alone 😋
Another one here 🤨
Entered passcode via Intel map, got media
Did you enter the passcode on the Intel map or in the app? Did you get the media item?
Intel Map, got Media item
Same. I've entered the passcode on the Intel map, recieved the media and I don't appear on the leaderboard.
Same ;L not on the list either
same here, also redeemed in intel
Same here, got it at roughly 21:55 Monday - entered on Intel Map and got the 13ADreamer media item in inventory.
same here :D friend entered the code after me and is on the list...
Cross-posting this update from the main decoder thread. We’ve been watching the leaderboard and are aware that some of you have solved the challenge and entered the correct passcode but aren’t appearing on the leaderboard. It appears as if this is specific to any Agents who entered the passcode via Intel Map. The team is aware of this issue and looking into resolving it ASAP.
In the meantime, we’re investigating options to address the leaderboard issue for any affected agents. I’ll provide updates on this discussion thread as they become available: https://community.ingress.com/en/discussion/comment/51998/#Comment_51998
Thanks for your understanding!
@NianticCasey For what it's worth, people I've contacted redeemed via intel, and appeared on the list fine.
I'm missing off of the list, my first redeem was due to inventory being full, recycled, then redeemed again via intel.
Hopefully this aids your investigation.
same problem here... (successfully entered, got media, but not on list)
enterted the passcode via intel, about 14:42 UTC 2019-12-10
Any news on this issue?
I see more entries have been added to the list but I'm *still* not there
Thanks for all the additional input everyone. I'm happy to report that this issue has been addressed as of this morning and the Leaderboard should accurately reflect all passcode redemptions moving forward. Sorry to say that, unfortunately, we weren't able to recover the missing entries. Thanks for your patience while we looked into this issue!
So I worked all night for nothing
Totally DISGUSTED by Niantics incompetence
This is absolutely ridiculous. Shame on you, Niantic!
Maybe use 13ADreamer as a practice round and resetting everything for the remaining 12 so everyone is on equal footing again.
So... Leaderboard is irredeemably broken.
How can Niantic regain trust in the challenge from agents affected? I know at least 2 missing in the top 15. They are very pissed, ofc.
How can we know it won't happen again to other random people, (and how to fix it, eventually) if we have no live feedback?
What is niantic doing to repair the damages?
So, reset the code for all Agents :P Shame,
Sorry, but this is ridiculous. There must be logs about us getting the media, or the media must have a date when it was acquired. I simply cannot accept that with this I am 1 challenge short in the leaderboard. The least I expect is getting recognized for solving this first challenge at all. I have the media item as proof.
At the very least this means that the leaderboard for the series must ignore the results for the first challenge, since they are broken.
You really need to deal with this situation somehow or the whole event is lost, which would be a pity since it's alot of fun.
Just letting it move on while so many of the first solvers are cut out isn't right in any sense.
Only in our chatt group there's a hefty bunch, myself included, who specifically used Intel due to instructions stating that format, so I can imagine that the over all amount of missing entries is quite substential.
If you can't find a way to add us, either through logg or manually or both, then better reset the board, make it a test round as some suggested, and start over. Add a new dreamer puzzle, (I'm sure there are plenty of folks willing).
I agree with every word you said.
Maybe the folder on Nemesis' system contained that old invalid file "Dreamer" that we decrypted for nothing.
Damn Nemesis keeping old files with the current ones, 🙄
Even if you don't have the redemption logs you *do* know what we have in our inventories now.
So, at least for those that haven't, recycled the media, you could find all those that have the media but are not on the list.
Ok that wouldn't give the exact time but you at least know it is before the bug was fixed.
So we could all be added somewhere near the beginning with a note "could be earlier"
C'mon Niantic, we deserve better than that. As someone who screenshotted my passcode redemption at 21:50UTC (on the Intel map, as specifically instructed) I should be in the top 20 on the leaderboard (although maybe there's another couple of dozen people who solved it before I did and weren't given credit either). I still have the media item in my inventory; you probably ought to know how I obtained it and when, given that sorting media by acquisition time used to be a thing in Scanner Redacted (didn't it? Or am I misremembering?).
If that can't be done, this challenge must be nullified on the global leaderboard. (Anyone remember Advent of Code day 6 last year? Since this went wrong for some people, the organiser had the guts to remove it from the global leaderboard. See: https://www.reddit.com/r/adventofcode/comments/a3kr4r/2018_day_6_solutions/)
I've just redeemed it for like, the 5th time in the hope that I will be at least listed 500 places after where I should be.
That’s not a solve, this is a decoding challenge and you should know it.
You’re happy to tell some of the top decoders this round, some of the most dedicated people, some of those who really cared about being at the top, that their time and effort wasn’t worthy and they won’t count.
You’re happy to tell us that you know the leaderboard is inaccurate and false and that you´re OK carrying those inaccuracies forward through the challenge.
You’re happy to tell us that next time, when we will be paying a subscription to play a similar challenge, something will happen, some of us will be screwed… but hey, who cares? It’s just a game.
You’re happy to tell us that you’re sorry, that in fact this is just an experiment to try out the coming PoGo leaderboard, that things will happen and that we will all learn in the process… and we won’t hold it against you; just own it, don’t kick the can down the road.
I’m glad you’re happy; we, the ones screwed, are definitely not.
I think Game-masters can search persons who have redeemed the passcode: "Can redeem" or "Already redeemed", but you can't get the time redeemed for now, so we are not appearing on the scoreboard. Is this right?
So I suggest to change that the main (Top Decoders) leaderboard to be a redeem count, not redeemed time on UTC. Plus, individual ranking continues.
Ranked in to the leaderboard should be honorable, so it is non-sense to resetting it.
Is this a final verdict? Can we get a definitive answer as to whether there will be any further attempts to rectify this issue?
If the scoreboard stays as is and is combined with the rest of the challenges, then I don't see any point in contributing any more time to a challenge where results are lost to a bug and this is simply brushed off without a solution.
When I look at the the "Ingress updates" which is the Telegram ingress news channel, what I see for last 3 days is 1) "There will be a decoding challenge" 2) "decoding challenge top 20" 3) "Decoding challenge is broken for some agents" 4) "Niantic will sell you a picture instead of your default arrow in scanner" 5) "Niantic sells old character medals and inventory again" 7) "Niantic considers adding paid subscription to allow for more inventory and not new key lockers" 8) "Niantic cannot do anything about broken decoding challenge".
I've been a player since December 2012 and my satisfaction with Ingress and NIA at the moment is at all time low.
Please take a small break from trying to make even more money to consider the feelings on your player base. I understand using Ingress agents as guinea pigs in testing for more profitable PoGo and using volunteers where you can for community managers, vanguards and embedded photographers. Even this very challenge is created by players as I see Vorticity, a fellow decoder from years ago, listed as author.
However, if you keep handling issues like this, you'll run out of volunteers and players at some point.
