Hi G+! I've been broadcast-only here for a long time, while I focused on getting some stories written and some books done, and did my best to slog through a year that just seems to relish kicking us in the face over and over again.

I saw that Cyanogen is shutting down, though, and it reminded me of all the time I spent here talking with the Android ROM community, and how that community was both kind and welcoming to me. I had forgotten that the thing I liked the most about G+ was being part of narrowly focused communities that didn't treat me like I was dumb if I had a dumb question, and how I felt a little bit smarter every time I read my feed here.

I don't know if anyone even bothers to read this, or if I've been tuned out (which is what I would have done to me by now) but I wanted to say hello to anyone who still has this on their dashboard or whatever Google calls it.

Blues and Greys :- A severely low tide allows the rarely seen sand of Brighton beach to reflect the ruins of its West Pier. The miserable weather had manged to suck the colour out of everything in its path, the cold was entering every pore in my body and the damp was pervading my clothing. There was a heaviness in the air as the threat of rain hung over our heads. Every now and then the distant thrum of impatient traffic managed to break through the steady, monotonous beat of the waves.

Happy Birthday, Ingress. To commemorate our four year anniversary, everyone that reaches Level 3 by 11:59pm Pacific Time (PST) on Wednesday, November 30th, 2016 will earn a special Luminary Medal. The Luminary Medal will be awarded based on the following tiers:

Bronze Medal: Level 3 - Level 8
Silver Medal: Level 9 - Level 12
Gold Medal: Level 13 & 14
Platinum Medal: Level 15
Onyx Medal: Level 16

Additionally, for the next two weeks, each Portal action will generate double Action Points (AP). For example, capture a Portal to earn 1,000 AP or establish a Field to earn 2,500 AP. Hack output of the Portal Network has also been boosted.

During these four years, we’ve seen so many incredible moments - Anomalies, field art, epic operations, Ingress weddings and much more. If you have a favorite situation report from your experience over the last 4 years, we’d like to hear it. Share your SITREPs with the #IngressYear4 hashtag.

It’s time to move.

Warning: I will remove posts clearly in the wrong category (especially in the "Mod posts / Announcement" one. ) Moving them is becoming too much work, just because people don't pay attention where they post..

Genuine looking mistakes that have replies, .. I might still move instead, but don't rely on it ;-)
