Hamburg says: TheBaMs 4 Elite V
I want to apply for elite v, because i founded the craziest, coolest and most awesome resistance community ever and these guys want to see me in the elite v

here are some of the crazy guys from the Hamburg Ingress community , blue as well as green players!

big, big thanks to the hamburg ingress community - that convinced me of applying for elite V and contributed the following text without my knowledge:

"Ingress Resistance Hamburg" is the G+-Community of the Resistance Agents in Hamburg Germany, with about 550 Members nowadays. It was founded on 7th December 2012 by an agent called “TheBaMs”.

TheBaMs has invested a lot of time in creating and growing the Community by helping other agents to level up faster, by organising regular meetups, by introducing agents to each other, by organizing all sort of events, by moderating conflicts within the community, by motivating other agents to take on the role of an organizer, event-planner or “trainer” for younger agents - he established hangouts and fought real hard in the field for the resistance, so “bamsen” was soon established (and still is) as a synonym for “using bursters on green portals”. 
When TheBaMs had reached level 6, he calmed down a bit, focused on the community and stopped his insatiable chase for AP - instead he helped other agents to get AP, so they could level more easily and follow him on his way to level 8. Although he still focuses on helping others to gain AP, he got 19,2 Million AP a few weeks ago..

He is well connected to other Ingress-Communities in Germany and all over the world, representing the Hamburg Resistance at its best. He shares his knowledge and supports other agents and communities without showing off - most agents not involved in organizing all kinds of resistance events have no idea of how big his contribution to many local and also global events was - let us tell you - its enormous!

He soon got the nickname “Papa Schlumpf” (Grand Smurf) as he was always caring a lot about the Resistance community, about his fellow agents (aka smurfs) and about Ingress in general in Hamburg. 
He is now reaching out to the final achievment, the ultimate contribution to the very core of Ingress - Community, by raising the next Ingress generation from the very beginning as a parent.

There are a lot of events that might be suitable to represent his engagement for Hamburg, for Ingress and for the Resistance - we’ve chosen a few out of that:

Nun gut, bei mir steht das Wasser erst ab 15m gestiegenem Meeresspiegel vor der Tür, aber auf einer Insel wohne ich dann schon länger.

Ich hab mit +El Padre und +Toralv Dirro beim X-faction Stammtisch noch mal über einen Punkt gesprochen, der Ingress so spannend macht. Nennen wir es mal: pseudonymisierte Hyperlokalität.
Klingt giftig :-)

Gemeint ist: man lernt bei Ingress neue Leute aus seiner unmittelbaren Wohnumgebung, bzw. der jeweiligen Umgebung, in der man sich selber häufig aufhält, oder die über eine ausreichende Mobilität verfügen kennen, mit denen man sich also sehr einfach des Öfteren vor Ort persönlich treffen kann. Hinzu kommt - zumindest in Hamburg - eine oft sehr schnelle und intensive digitale Kommunikation. Dabei teilt man sofort ein gemeinsames Interesse. Insbesondere innerhalb der eigenen Fraktion reicht dieses gemeinsame Interesse sehr weit und ermöglicht, sehr unbefangen und vertrauensvoll Freundschaften einzugehen.

Von nicht nur symbolischer Bedeutung ist dabei, dass man im Spiel unter Pseudonym auftritt. Nicht weil man irgendwie anonym wäre. Im Gegenteil, man gibt schnell eine ganze Menge von Dingen Preis, die man sonst wohl kaum gegenüber Unbekannten offen legen würde. Entscheidend ist: man hat mit den allermeisten, die man im Spiel trifft, keinerlei Vorgeschichte. Es gibt keine vorgefertigten Urteile und auch keine Erwartungen, die enttäuscht werden könnten. Jede und jeder kann sich in die Community einführen, wie sie oder er möchte, kann die Rolle übernehmen, die ihr oder ihm am meisten Spaß macht.

Und die Ingress Community ist höchst vielseitig und arbeitsteilig. Man kann Events organisieren, als lone wolf durch die Gegend ziehen, sich um die Einführung neuer Spieler kümmern, Farmen pflegen, Großfelder bauen, Opperator machen, unterhaltsam für die Community sein, Tools programmieren - jeder, was er kann und was ihm Spaß macht.

All das macht es leicht, sehr realitätsnah genau die Person zu sein, die man eigentlich schon immer sein wollte!

Insofern ist Ingress eben tatsächlich ein Rollenspiel. Allerdings eines, mit außerordentlich realistischen und in der Regel leicht zum positiven der jeweiligen Persönlichkeit verschobenen Rollen.

Na, wenn das nicht mal eine nette Erkenntnis ist:
Ingress macht aus uns bessere Menschen.
