Anyone that thinks Google Plus is still a ghost town and Hangouts is inactive obviously isn't playing Ingress.

POTENTIAL GPS SPOOFING DESTROYING A MAJOR AUSTRALASIAN OPERATION

Australia has recently been dealing with a lot of accusation from all sides about GPS spoofing.  Both sides tend to be quick to accuse others of GPS spoofing when things don't go their way.  However, when investigating these properly, the level of evidence is not about what someone wouldn't do themselves, it's about what's physically impossible by any way other than spoofing.

To that end, I would like to present a unique case where there was likely quite significant GPS spoofing in the last twelve hours.  For the last 3 weeks, Australian Resistance have been dealing with a suspected spoofer called MissMia, who attacked many Northern Territory, South Australian and Western Australian portals.  Our concern was that they seemed to be very mobile, but without specific proof, we attempted to investigate.

A series of events happened during the Australian Resistance's attempt to field Australia, New Zealand and even South East Asia in conjuction with our colleagues from those other countries.  This was the result of months of work.  The fields went up, anchored over two portals, Uluru Town Square Pond, Uluru NT (http://www.ingress.com/intel?ll=-25.241262,130.983555&z=17) and ANZAC Hill, Alice Springs NT (http://www.ingress.com/intel?ll=-23.694827,133.88224&z=19&pll=-23.694643,133.882263)

These portals are over 330km apart as the crow flies, and it's over 468km apart by the nearest road.  Google estimates the time taken to drive is 6 hours and 22 minutes.

However, last night, player MissMia appeared after midnight and attacked both of these portals:

17th November 2013 (all times are in Australian Eastern Standard Time):

12:22am: MissMia attacked ANZAC Hill, Alice Springs and took it over for the Enlightnment, breaking the links already present.
12:37am: MissMia attacked ANZAC Hill again and took it over again for the Enlightenment, when a local Alice Springs agent took it back and started to build the links again.

Then, over 300km away at Uluru, just a little over an hour later:

1:50am MissMia attacked Uluru Town Square Pond and took it over for the Enlightenment, breaking multiple critical links in the plan to field Australia.

And then 300km back northeast again, MissMia returned to Alice Springs where this started, this time covering that 330km (468km by road) in 53 minutes:

2:43am MissMia attacked ANZAC Hill, again taking it down and breaking links that were being used again for laying the links to field Australia.

Details of COMMS and pictures are included below.  Full details of the above events in COMMS are viewable by choosing this link of Intel:

http://www.ingress.com/intel?ll=-24.633152,133.201425&z=8

I would like to invite player MissMia to provide a #SitRep for being able to take down the fields singlehandedly, travelling so far and so fast, and back again all within two hours.  I am genuinely interested in how this player is able to do this.  I would like to ask agent MissMia to clear their name.  

Otherwise, I would like to invite +NIA Ops to review this case and give their thoughts.

The game in Australasia has been substantially marred.  This field across Australia, New Zealand, New Caledonia and Asia would likely have happened were it not for the actions of the above agent.

For those players that have been playing in Sydney since around April, you won't have any idea who I am, but the veterans will.  Just want to wish you all the best for the Anomaly tomorrow - I wish I could be there.  I'll be working out of town tomorrow, and it is killing me that I can't be there and can't be a part of it.

Have a blast - I will be there in spirit!

I second Aram's sentiment. You're a top player, and are missed in Sydney.

I would have posted this as a comment to the post linked below, but commenting is disabled on that post (I'm not certain why), so I need to post this as a new post.

I have had a chat with some of the high level Enlightened about this before posting it publicly - I was encouraged to post this by them to set the record straight.  This is a post specifically discussing points of fact made by Matt (Swik/Swiksta) in this post: https://plus.google.com/112155477032734724830/posts/8vdR6AUftrK

I don't think anyone has an issue with most of the points or is contesting that you decided that you signed up a new account and then moved to that.  The evidence you provided showed that you actioned the delete request on February 1.

What I would like to contest is that you claimed that you removed yourself from the Resistance NSW community on February 1: "FYI I also removed myself from Resistance NSW G+ group that same day [as the account deletion request]".

This was untrue.  You maintained your access to Resistance NSW until February 27, when it was brought to my attention that "Swiksta" (R) was likely now "Swik" (E) whilst still maintaining access to Resistance NSW.  I remember this because there are posts remaining in Resistance NSW marking this date.  I also remember because I  looked down the membership lists for Resistance NSW and found your name, went to your profile and noticed that whilst you were still an active member of Resistance NSW that you had listed your Enlightened username "Swik" on your profile.

I know this, because I can reference the posts on February 27 where it was brought to my attention.  I was the moderator of Resistance NSW, and upon finding sufficient evidence that you had access to the community whilst being a player for the Enlightened (you were L6 at the time), I was the moderator that removed you from Resistance NSW.

I'm a little mystified that you now claim that you removed yourself from Resistance NSW on February 1.  This was not actually what happened.  You maintained your membership for a further 26 days, and it would have been for longer had I not removed you.

Would you be interested in providing an explanation of how you maintained access to Resistance NSW whilst you were playing on the Enlightened side?  If you had decided to move to the Enlightenment and had already put in a request for deletion, why did you maintain your access to Resistance NSW?

I'll leave this open for discussion, but I would ask that this stay focussed on the particular issue in this thread.  If you have any other issues with regards anyone else, I would ask that you consider starting another thread.

I would again ask that this thread remain on the original topic, which was specifically to discuss Matt's claim that he removed himself from Resistance NSW and did not maintain access after February 1. This is untrue. These issues were not discussed publicly previously but instead were discussed through the long established relations that keep the peace. I would ask again that all we refrain from thread hijacking and please remain on topic. If you have any other topic, please start a new thread.

Or preferably consult your organisers within your own G+ communities.

I've had a discussion with a high level Enlightened player - comments from now on will need to remain on topic or will be deleted, and to avoid this being hijacked it will be locked after 24 hours of inactivity.  

If anything further needs to be said that pertains to the original topic, conversation on that topic is welcomed.

Just an announcement for the Holiday Monday.  If the Enlightened could send invitations to the Ingress Sydney Enlightened Community or even better, add the Enlightened Community to the guest list, I would be grateful!

Hope to see everyone there!
 
On the Australia Day Holiday, it's time to put down the XMP Bursters for a couple of hours and have a drink with the people you've been fiercely battling with recently.  It's time for the first Sydney Enlightened/Resistance cross-factional meet.

This time and date are currently tentative - if there is a better time, please discuss this here.

Joe Philley mentioned there MAY be the possibility of additional invites being supplied to people that turn up - this is tentative and not confirmed, however, but I will liaise with Joe to see if we can make that happen.  It would be an extra sweetener if it happens, anyway.

But the main reason is to get out there and meet so many of you - both our own factions and that of our opposition.  It's been done in many other cities, and I can imagine everyone would benefit from getting to know the real life stories of the people you're playing against.

If the Enlightened could share this with the Ingress Sydney Enlightened Community I would be grateful.

(Repeat request - event is now public - sorry about that!)

It was also concluded that InspectorRex also spoofs so I may not be surprised that this could well be his second account.

AGENT-SPONSORED XM ANOMALY EVENTS IN GREATER SYDNEY

I've had an idea for a while but was waiting to see if Niantic would bring XM Anomaly events to Australia.  Now I think it's worth doing it as a NSW Ingress sponsored event (i.e. we run it ourselves).

The general idea is that on a given day, we select a series of say 4 Enlightened and Resistance Portals around Sydney, likely central, and then designate a series of 4 portals on the peripheries of Sydney (north, south, east and west) that people will need to connect to from those portals via no more than 3 links.  This can happen any time on the given day in question.

In order to make this work, you'll need people protecting the origin and destination portals, have people making links, those destroying other factional links, and people sitting back and co-ordinating on intel.  There would also be a need for a small number of adjudicators to run things on the day.

Just wondering, would this be something people would go for?  I reckon it could prove interesting and fun on the day!
Enlightened,. You do not know me personally, and yet each day you come into contact with the scientific breakthrough that I pioneered. I am a researcher at the Niantic Project, my identity shall remain unknown for my protection... While the Niantic leadership seeks profit, safety and new ...

+Seumas Hyslop if you put the event on the Ingress page then there is a chance that the people of Ingress might help out and drop some items too.

At the last social meet there was a general feeling that we should do this again sometime.

I am wondering if there would be any interest in arranging another cross-factional social meet in another 3 weeks or so from now - or is that too soon?

Hey everyone!  Great news - I've received 15 invitations from Joe Philley for the Cross Factional meet.  I will only be giving them out to people that are confirmed guests on the day - so to get any of these invitations you'll need to confirm yourself on the Google Plus event page AND also get any other guests are coming to confirm on that page as well.  

If someone has been wanting an invitation, tell them about the event and then send them the link for people to add themselves.  At the moment only 8 people have accepted, so it's looking like those 8 will get 2 invitations each!

Hope to see you all there!
 
On the Australia Day Holiday, it's time to put down the XMP Bursters for a couple of hours and have a drink with the people you've been fiercely battling with recently.  It's time for the first Sydney Enlightened/Resistance cross-factional meet.

The main reason is to get out there and meet so many of you - both our own factions and that of our opposition.  It's been done in many other cities, and I can imagine everyone would benefit from getting to know the real life stories of the people you're playing against.

And now the HUGE sweetener, thanks to Joe Philley at Niantic, there will be AT LEAST FIFTEEN invitations given out during this two hour period.  To have the maximum chance of winning one, you'll need to be a confirmed guest on this list (not just turn up) on the day.  There will also be bonus invitations for people that turn on Google Plus Party Mode on their phone and contribute photos to a shared gallery of everyone at the event.  Be there or miss out!

Those people that are not yet playing but hope to be, you are welcome to come along as well - and you might score your invitation code to start playing and then have members of both the Enlightened and the Resistance courting you to join their team all at the same event!

That was a blast - thank you all so very much for braving the weather and coming.  Most people observed a ceasefire during the event, and I appreciated that.

All 15 invitations have been given out now - if there are any problems, please let me know.  And thank you to +Joe Philley for organising those invites - they were very gratefully received!

There was a lot of laughter, a lot of discussion, a lot of sharing stories from the field, but there was also a lot of admiration going on - I personally admire a lot of you guys on the Enlightened for what you're doing and how you play.
