Could we have a separate category for Mission related issues? This would probably help forum organization quite a bit! 😍 💚💙
Agreed! Missions need a category. There are many factors that could be looked at to improve mission experiences. @RedSoloCup @NianticHilda @nia_casey @NianticMac
I have several questions and comments about missions that would be best asked in its own category. Please set up a separate section for missions!
Are we talking about a sub-category under Discussions for sharing lovely Missions/Banners? or a sub-category under Support for questions and comments? Or both? 🤔
Might fit nicely as a subcat in sitreps as far has discussing them and showcasing really cool ones that you have found.
@NianticHilda I think probably both. Those of us who love to do missions tend to love to talk about great missions we've done and provide advice about missions for those traveling to a new area, so that's a discussion category. But I think there are also a lot of questions about why missions are rejected and suggestions for how to improve missions in the scanner, so that's a support topic.
Yeah, I would say both as well... There's definitely a difference between those and a near constant discussion that occurs within the mission community for those as separate ideas.
I think it should be its own category. Here is the link to Category Request I made under Ingress Community Feedback Every category can't possibly fit neatly under "Community and Discussion" or "Support and Feedback". I think there should be multiple categories with sub-categories to encourage discussion about those topics.
For Example categories could be:
@NianticHilda it seems my comment that I tried to leave here triggered a manual review. Would you mind checking to see if its acceptable? I have no clue which key word I hit on this time lol (I might have hit submit twice on accident).
I second this request, but I am quite disappointed since Niantic doesn't seem so interested to this wonderful and enjoyable section of the game. I'd have so many things to point out and even to complain: the late and wobbly support in Prime, the absence of a decent tool to request mission and their completely random acceptance, usually followed by vague or inconsistent motivations.
I posted almost the exact same request about 20 hours ago. The post got a bunch of views but no response. *sigh* The amusing thing is I wrote the post about 4 hours before this thread started. But I got a message that it would be "posted once it was approved by moderators" or something. Then it came out literally 2 minutes after this thread started! 😏
Anyway, it doesn't matter who's asking. It's an odd oversight since missions are so popular. @NianticHilda I'd love to see both of your suggestions, but they should probably both be sub-forums under one general forum. Having one mission related thread under General and another under Support would just result in confusion and people would be posting things in one that belong in the other, and vice versa.
I Really like designing, planning and creating new missions! and Also love to do others missions - its such a fun way to "collect" memories from different places you visited!
i do however miss some usefull feedback on the submitted missions that comes back denied.
so for me it would be usefull to have a forum for missions.
So that both the mission hunters and creators can objectively debate, share experince etc..
I think the community would LOVE some support about missions/banners. There are so many unanswered questions....
Oh, that's weird. I Wonder what triggers an approval by a mod? 😕
@HuckleGreenie I certainly wouldn’t mind having a limit higher than the current 150 missions one can create.
@ReighElmos have a look at this thread then:
Like it and comment on it to keep it in the public eye.
"Mission Creating" definitely needs a category. It's been SO frustrating getting vague mission rejection feedback from Niantic. Rejections sometimes seem arbitrary and capricious; especially when another player then follows with submitting the exact same original mission and it is approved.
One of the biggest issues they have is that it takes more employees and resources to be able to process that sort of thing. I've been meeting up with other players and entering sets on their account as we sit in coffee shops. Sometimes, people have just signed into my laptop as well. That's been nice for helping xfac relations as well!
Could this be moved to Ingress Community Feedback? 💚💙❤️
@NianticHilda @NIA_casey @NianticMac @RedSoloCup
@NIA_casey @NianticMac I have a few pending comments that got triggered for a manual review for this thread. Can you please post one and delete the other two? They are duplicates because I tried to click post comment more than once.
Disregard... it seems that even when a post gets approved it stays in my drafts.
Here's another request thread:
