I'm mad today. This will not be a happy fun post.

For the past almost 4 years, Ingress players have come to play a game they loved, in the real world and have educated people about it. We talked to business owners, introduced ourselves, told them what we are doing, and asked if there were things we needed to do in order to have a harmonious relationship with them. Some said please don't play here, and we didn't, and attempted to have portals removed to not cause strife (to varying degrees of success) others said things like "please just don't block our doors or our driveway or interfere with our business" and we woudl tell our communities that and it would be fine with only a few minor problems that we would apologize for. Some welcomed us with open arms and even had specials if we told them we were an ingress player (a couple pizza places would give us a dollar off slices of pizza or something) as a thank you for bringing more people to their business. It was all about RESPECT and being apart of the community. We knew if we didn't be better people, that this game we were all starting to love for our own reasons would go the way of the dodo bird quickly, we were harbingers of a new age.

Fast forward to now, almost 4 years later, Pokemon Go. Personally, i think Pokemon GO is great for families, and more accessible to families getting out, going places, seeing the world, getting exercise, and being apart of their community instead of being at home doing nothing. If they want to be, and it seems like many aren't.

This my friends, is where it gets ugly.

What we see pictured here are lazy pieces of shit that can't fucking read the sign that is saying "Welcome, please obey these simple rules" and obviously lack the common sense to comprehend the message on the sign (seen with a person standing in front of it).

On top of that we also see a complete lack of respect for someone's family members grave so you can catch ten of the same digital not real creature in a game on your phone.

Thank you, you are the reason this game will get banned from being playable, your are the reason that video game players get bad reputations when new technology comes out. You deserve every ticket you should be getting for being disrespectful and you will be the reason that pokestops will get removed, and more and more problems will be seen as the spaces are condensed for play.

Why can't you just have some simple common courtesy for the places you play? How would you feel if you can to visit the gravesite of a loved one and first could not park nearby because of a line of cars and second walked to the grave to see a scene similar to this?

WHY is it so important to catch the same 10 things RIGHT THEN RIGHT NOW? Why not walk around, enjoy the history, pay some respects, talk to some people out of the way, and be more a person occupying a space instead of a center of attention, and bad attention at that?

I'm glad you are out of your house, i am GLAD you are getting exercise, i am BEYOND glad that you are meeting new people, and breaking social norms

BUT YOU HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY that goes along with those norms. YOU must now show people that you CAN be respectful, you CAN operate alongside of other people and you CAN make the world a better place through technology. Do you want to see more games take chances like this? do you want new things to play like you are now? OF COURSE YOU DO!!! but there is a price to that. and that price is COMMON SENSE AND RESPECT. No company is going to get their asses sued off because you can't follow some simple rules.

Tell you what. Send me your address so i can come sit on your porch or in your driveway and play on my phone and not move and have a total lack of common courtesy towards you so I can be a piece of shit that is awesome at fake internet points too. Let me be the exact same type of person you are to these places and let me know what you think of that, sound good?

Please. Change your behavior. Keep this game alive. Keep the passion for these games going. Don't scare away people, or families, by acting like an asshole. Don't scare businesses from embracing this new paradigm. If you see people behaving like the ones pictures below, approach them and get them to stop. Explain why it's important they change their behavior. BE the person to take charge, and make things happen. Let's make this shift a good one, remember, it's always harder to get something back once you have lost it through the creation of animosity.

Thanks you.

Talented recruits 8. April 2016 site report
(now with pics)

During the winter I have had an extra job as a substitute on a primary school in a suburb of Copenhagen. At this school there is a portal and of course whenever I can I will hack it.

One day the Headmaster asked me what I was doing on the phone all the time. Well, I showed him Ingress and hangouts and we started to talking about gaming and networking. Not that he would ever start playing Ingress, but he is a very curious person.
Then he told me about this organisation he has started for exceptional talented students from all over Denmark, and maybe Ingress could be introduced to them?

Well of course he didn’t have to say that out loud more than once. The wheel was turning. I started sharing the idea in the local smurf community and a program started to form in my head.
I talked more to the Headmaster and he said: “Start of april we have a camp” The date was then set for 8. April, shortly after Niantic decided that Anomaly in Copenhagen would be 2. April.  “Timing is essential” is a very good rule, but it’s usually something for the fairy tales.

Nevertheless, I asked @schatchaos to help me make some missions and giving me some feedback. Since he had also arranged the Mission Day, he contacted +Anne Beuttenmueller  She loved the idea of introducing Ingress to 60 youngsters between the age of 14-15. I decided rather early that it should be a cross faction event, since the spirit of the game is to have fun. And even though we fight the frogs in Copenhagen, we also love our frogs. Without them - no game.@Morv88 accepted to be the frog to help, and that proved to be a very good choice.

Niantic was so thrilled about this event that they sent us a swag package for the youngsters. We and all the youngsters were very grateful. It really was an amazing package. Passcodes, wristbands, stickers and even a couple of t-shirts and headphones.

In the center of Copenhagen we managed to find a nice place for the event. Plenty of space and lots of portals in the neighbourhood.

But only a week before the event I was asked if I could take the entire camp, which meant 90 youngsters instead of 60. Yes of course - the more the merrier! Of course we were now short of swag and no time to get more. But we had enough for everybody to get something, and every little tiny swag was a bonus to the day.

After some busy days up to Anomaly and a wonderful Anomaly with a wonderful party and the meeting of old and new friends - and then a day of sleep - I started to feel ready for the Talented recruits. Last details fell into place.

Program for the day:
* Introduction to the world of Ingress and game mechanics
* Playing
* More detailed info about the game and missions
* Competition (we had made 9 missions exclusively  for this day. Who could complete 6 of them fastest)
* Last info. Information like don’t cheat. A lot of people spends hours and lots of money on this game. It is NOT fun to see big plans being destroyed by a spoofer or double account. Have fun. “Fight against the other faction and have a drink afterwards. The winner pays.”

The day was amazing. Everything got delayed - of course. This just always happens. But without any stress we all had fun and all the youngsters had a wonderful day. Even the  few who didn’t like the game. They loved to have the chance to be on the loose in Copenhagen.
First time I let them out on the streets to play, the comm went crazy with first link/field, new agent names and so on. 90 lvl 1 agents streamed out on the streets. And agents @Morv88 and @Thibadeaux were busy shooting it all down and helping them all. They did a tremendous work this day.

Agent @Thibadeaux had started the morning (night) at 5 a.m. Shooting all center of Copenhagen down. Making links around the area of the event before we started. Amazing work on his initiativ. He shot more than 2800 resonators down that day!

The students were interested both in the game and also amazed of the networking aspect of Ingress. The winners of the competition ran through all 6 missions and it took them 30 minutes afterwards to catch their breaths. Everybody had a wonderful day in Copenhagen with Ingress, and we really hope that this wasn’t the last of its kinds.

Without the help and inspiration of these people it would never have been possible to make this event.

Therefore a special thank to:
@Schatchaos(Søren Schrøder) for making contact with Niantic and making the missions and the feedback.
@Baconmonster(Flemming Skjold Iversen) for feedback and making the Google map with the missions.
@Morv88(Marianne Jensen) (frog) and
@Thibadeaux(Jens Kolbe Olsen) for being there on the day keeping the area clear and helping,interacting,  commenting and being a lovely frog/smurf. And not least for clearing the area in the early morning.
@Knoldesparker(Mads Jensen) (frog) for helping me finding the right frog.
And of course for all the cheering and support from everybody else in hangouts, also the cross faction hangout for Copenhagen. It is always wonderful to have cheering :-)

Thanks to Niantic +Anne Beuttenmueller  for support and swag (and Ingress)

Signing off @Klemse(Nikolaj Noval)

@Morv88 ready for action
