Thank you +Niantic+NIA Ops+Ingress​ for completely invalidating the thousands of players who reached 730 days of sojourner who didn't get in on the three threads you posted. I'm sure it will spur all of us to keep playing, what with your poorly planned and implemented methods of honoring people who have continued to maintain their sojourner badge past the requirement for onyx. You literally have the data at your fingertips to reward everyone, but decided on a half-assed plan to give at most 1500 people who were watching G+ instead of playing a reward. It's just another example of the incompetence and ineptitude of the community relations that +Niantic​ has shown throughout these 4+ years. The community endures not because of, but in spite of +Niantic​'s ability to connect and communicate with their user base.

You can easily see who has or has not achieved the 2 year-long 730 day sojourner. Requiring users to post to limited G+ threads to get a "reward" just demonstrates how short-sighted the entire organization happens to be.

Wow, 730 days. Hard to believe I started this after a blizzard, and a year later went out in another just to keep the streak alive...

Wow, I think I wrote my first college paper about IPv6 20+ years ago, and it still isn't the norm today...

Seeing multiple "failed to start login service" makes me so glad I was forcibly moved to systemd. #systemdsucks

Had my first real-world lockpicking experience today, helping a coworker access a firebox he'd lost the key to. Less destructive than a Dremel, and if the key ever reappears, it's still usable...
