Can someone give an example of what is measured for the new regional scoreboards? I've read the explanation a half dozen times and can't make sense of it.

My local region (a major metro area of 8million people or so, with plenty of fields) shows 12k ENL and 9.6k RES. Looking in Comm shows more net MU than that captured during the last checkpoint, way more MU than that standing throughout that period, etc.

I'm lost as to how those scores are actually calculated, and nobody on either faction can seem to explain it. Can you help by sharing an example?

+Nico Thomas It is global: it's the rolling average of the sum of all cells.

Also, note that (I believe) the cell stats are only meant to track fields put up that period. I didn't think that this was working for this first period, being transitionary and all, but the global cell count is not going to be the same as the global MU count.

I can't say for sure exactly what the discrepancy is, but it does seem accurate to what it's tracking.

I'd like to submit a #Portalappeals  for the following as well: 

Title: "Mitchell Community Teaching Garden" 
Live: 7/22/2013
LAT/LON: 41° 53.496', -87° 40.961'

This is a community teaching garden, located at the edge of a public school campus. It is essentially a small park in the neighborhood (which is why the photo is of the sign and a portion of the garden). 

Per the Portal Criteria guidelines: 
"Example types of submission candidates that are usually rejected:
*Portals on school campuses (preschool through 12th grade) that are not accessible from the public sidewalk."

This portal IS accessible from the public sidewalk. It is also accessible from the roadway. It is not located near any of the entrances of the nearby school. Access at any time of the day/year is possible and encouraged by the school.

This portal meets all the criteria listed on the website, and clearly shows the influence of XM on our ongoing understanding and control of nature. Please reinstate this portal.

I'd like to request #portalappeals  for the following portal that just vanished today: 
Title: "Heart Shaped Hole" 
Live since: 6/20/2013
LAT/LON: 41° 53.460', -87° 41.136'

This is a work of street art that was wheat-pasted to the public wall of a well-traveled alleyway. Most street artists do not 'sign' their work, but I believe it is a decal by _Sonny, a well-known street artist in Chicago.

Per the Candidate Portal Criteria: 
"Examples of high-quality submissions that may be accepted:
*Art (i.e., statues, outdoor murals, unique building features, fountains, artistic graffiti, etc.)"

Below, you can see the portal key from the portal, the original photo submission, and a quick snapshot taken a few minutes ago showing the artwork is still there (forgive the distance--weather was not conducive to framing a good shot).

This falls clearly in the Art category as artistic graffiti or outdoor artwork. It is fully publicly accessible on the public way (both to approach and to view), and is not a temporary installation. 

Therefore, it seems to meet all relevant standards for portal submissions. Please reinstate this portal.

SitRep: Operation Caterpillar Fields

In Skokie, IL, in the near North suburbs of Chicago, lies the legendary "Caterpillar" (or 'Cat' for short). An undriveable, mile-long linear sculpture park with over 50 portals, the Cat has long been a local Enlightened stronghold, frequently serving as a green P8 farm. 

In recent weeks, the Resistance have fought hard and been largely successful at keeping the Cat from being leveled up. But the Resistance wanted to make a statement. It wasn't enough to keep the Cat low-level, or even to flip it blue. Not even building it to a blue P8 farm would suffice. 

The message could only be delivered when this "Enlightened stronghold" was transformed into the cornerstone of a series of megafields covering Chicagoland.

On Saturday, December 14, the United Chicagoland Resistance joined forces with regional Resistance forces to deliver this statement. On the final day of Beta, the end of #13Magnus , the Reckoning Day, the Resistance would open a new chapter of  #Ingress  in Chicago.

Nothing of this sort had ever been attempted by either faction in Chicago before. These fields required clearing a path through the heart of the city, and through several portal-dense suburbs, including areas that were dominated by Enlightened agents.

For hours on this day, a team of nearly 50 Resistance Agents scoured Chicagoland, clearing nearly 200 km^2 of territory of all links to clear the corridors for these fields. They braved heavy snowfall, frigid temperatures, and hazardous roads to execute the mission.

Finally, at 9:30pm CT, a series of 14 layered fields went up, covering the city in a dense blue blanket. At 2.1 million MU each, the Resistance added almost 30 million MU to the global total. Success!

This was the first time that the Resistance has successfully put a megafield over Chicago. This was the highest number of concurrent fields covering Chicago by any faction. The first time links/fields have been built through Chicago by any faction.
