Local Chicago Agent, +Donovan Beeson likes to write letters. So she made some GREAT Ingress/Resistance themed stationery templates. 

This is swag you can make yourself....just click the image/link below, download, print, and cut!

(But you should also check out the website of her organization, the +Letter Writers Alliance, at http://www.letterwriters.org/ because everyone likes getting letters in the mail....and you gotta write letters to get letters!)

Curious to know how all the scoring shook out for Persepolis? 

Here's a simple summary of every Persepolis Anomaly site (with measurement results on the 2nd tab) complete with links to the original +Ingress posts in case you want to track down the details of that one battle you had at Measurement 3.

It's not pretty, but it gets the job done. Enjoy!

Hi! 
I'm new to Agent-Stats, but I've been (manually) tracking my stats almost since I started playing. I have a lot of the stats tracked over time.

I'm trying to import 164 points, and I have the format correct, etc. 

When I do this, it tells me that I have "Successfully imported 160 points"...and it only displays the most recent 3 points. 

So somehow 4 of the points I'm importing are not properly importing, and while I can see 160 lines in the "Export" tab, only 3 points are actually appearing on the charts.

I had the same problem, and this was the answer. Thanks!

Open House Chicago gave a great opportunity to explore the insides of the gorgeous architectural, spiritual, and artistic gems just blocks from our home. So blessed to be able to see these spaces!

Combine with Leap Motion for a screen-free, (or minimal/projected screen) keyboard-free, ubiquitous home computer. And watch the future arrive.

+Dan Evans​, I looked for a conversation we had a while back about the fun improvements in inputs and technology that also mentioned Oculus Rift, but I can't track it down now. This should be added to that conversation.
 
This is one of the first truly revolutionary products I've seen from Amazon it's pretty awesome. Great concept great execution will see if competitors follow, but well done Amazon.
It's pretty rare that a new product truly surprises us. But today Amazon did just that, introducing Echo, a talking, listening piece of electronic furniture. It's like having the internet on your kitchen table, cracking jokes and settling bets, and it's the most innovative device Amazon's made in years.

Portal Title: The Arborist
City/State/Country: Chicago, IL, USA
Location: 41.901402, -87.696649
Category: New Submission Appeal

The Arborist is a community gathering point and a local event space. Hosting any manner of events throughout the year, recent events have included pop-up shops of local artists and craftsmen (https://www.facebook.com/events/623532307740324/?ref=22 for April's event, though I know they did one in August and another in September as well). They are also a host of California Nights, which draws many people to the community (https://www.facebook.com/CaliforniaNightsChicago & http://www.dnainfo.com/chicago/20140718/humboldt-park/california-nights-returns-humboldt-park-this-weekend) who would otherwise not go. 

While this doesn't have the historical weight or super-awesome-cool factor of some #portalgems  it seems to be the exact kind of local place that should be highlighted by a game like Ingress Shaper influence, and it definitely falls within the scope of:
A HIDDEN GEM OR HYPER-LOCAL SPOT
*A popular spot where locals gather, but may be lesser-known outside the community
*Tourist spots that showcase local flavor and culture and that make your city/neighborhood unique
as well as
A COMMUNITY GATHERING PLACE
*Somewhere where members of the city/town gather to socialize or impact the community
*A local hangout where people gather, talk and spend time together

The events hosted by the Arborist are definitely of the sort that encourage people to get out and experience (if not explore) their community, as well as the kind that offer artistic illumination to the community. 

To be fair, there ARE two nearby portals, though they are each at least 30m away from this one. And as you can see from the screenshot, the portal wasn't rejected for "Too Close"--it was rejected for "Does not meet criteria".

For Trade / Trade Wanted  - 
 
I have a Suzanna Moyer card with unredeemed code. I don't want faces staring at me from my badges, so I'm willing to trade for something. I have all anomaly badges already.

What's a Moyer card/code worth?

I wouldn't take less than several patches or cards for it, myself, in order to give you some sort of guideline on worth.

Can you help find the flag?
 
Missing: UCR Flag
The United Chicagoland Resistance Flag was dropped during rucksack exchanging exercises as part of the GORUCK mission near the Tidal Basin in Washington DC yesterday. If you have seen this flag, please message me. I would very much like to return this flag to Chicago. The flag was hand-made by a dedicated Ingress player and has probably seen more anomalies than any agent I can think of. Thank you for your help!

Edit2: Appeal approved. Portal live. Voting closed.

Edit: Ready for *#PortalAppealReview** 42 to 5.*

Type of Appeal: Rejected new submission
Portal Name: CHAOS - Chicago Homebrew Alchemists Of Sud
Location: 2415 W Hubbard St., Chicago, IL, USA
Lat/Lon: 41.889408, -87.687371
Street View: http://goo.gl/rlzxuT Intel: https://www.ingress.com/intel?ll=41.889316,-87.687163&z=18

To put it simply, CHAOS is a homebrew club. A place where beer enthusiasts can create their own beer. 

But more than that, it's a gathering place--a place where enthusiasts come together to share ideas, techniques, and hone their craft.
It's a place where the art and science of beer making happens.
It's the first homebrew club in Chicago with its own dedicated brewing space and fermentation space.
It's a hyper-local hidden gem that even locals don't know about.
And it's the place where many local Brewmasters have gotten their start. 

http://www.chaosbrewclub.net/about/chaos

The photo initially submitted wasn't great because at the time I had never been inside. After submitting the photo and getting curious, I explored the history and function of this place. 

A hyper-local, hidden gem, gathering place, and home of creativity. If the Shaper influence isn't obvious here, I don't know where else to look.

Portal Title: Kraft Veterans Memorial
City/Region/Country: Northfield, IL USA
Lat/Lon: 42.1070238,-87.7963003
Category: New Submission Appeal

On the day after Veterans Day, the day we remember the service of all who have served in the Armed Forces, I get a rejection notice for a memorial to those same Veterans. Your timing could not be worse. 

+NIA Ops This memorial is small. It is simple. It probably doesn't qualify as a PortalGem. But it does encourage those on/near the Kraft corporate campus to get out and explore, and it serves as a reminder of those employees at Kraft--past, present, and future--who have served our nation in the Armed Forces. 

As we engage in a war over the hearts and minds of the world, and prepare to face a possible battle against Shaper influence (and who even knows what the N'Zeer might bring!?), we should take every opportunity to remember those who serve. 

Please add this as a valid portal. Thank you!

Portal Title: Ancient Dragon Zen Gate
City/Region/Country: Chicago, IL USA
Lat/Lon: 41.954335, -87.677000
Category: New Submission Appeal


While Ancient Dragon Zen Gate appears to be 'just' a storefront, it is, in reality a religious center. 

From the website, http://www.ancientdragon.org/
"Ancient Dragon Zen Gate is a community of practitioners committed to being a home for Soto Zen Buddhist meditation practice in Chicago. We hope to make this practice available to anyone interested, and welcome a diversity of participants."

So this is both a religious location and a community gathering space. A nod to the other-worldly, a nod to the self-reflection, a nod to the understanding of community. 

 Human + Civilization + Shaper, Together = Portal

This Portal is now ready for Hacking, Agent. We decided to reverse the decision, as it was previously rejected in error. Thanks again for putting this one back on our radar.
