would anyone be willing to participate in an experimental study where you would treat your mufg for, say, four weeks according to a preset plan imposed on you (e.g. 50 L8 resonators in one week, 30 jarvis in the next and so on),  report the current number of items every, say, 12 hours on a simple online form, and otherwise not touch the mufg? it would be quite restrictive - essentially you give the power how your capsule is used over to a third party and execute their wishes to the letter - and you could not really use the capsule at your own discrection and fluctuating ideas. but a study of this sort could give some robust and reliable numbers to get a reliable and initial estimates to answer questions like:
* do different capsules have different interest rates and if so, which?
* do different capsules have different interest intervals, and if so, which?
* do items of different rarity multiply differently?
* is there a fixed or rather variable interest rate?
* does it matter if the capsule contains mixed items or is it better to only load one type of item?
* does it impede replication if i look into the capsule often or does it not matter?
also such an experimental study may serve as a precedent for future studies about ingress items (including subsequent studies on the mufg that can answer additional questions and test very specific hypotheses) and make it easier in the future to hack item regularities.

i have thought about setting up something like this, but have so far hesitated, because i didn't know whether it is worth the effort if not many people would agree to such a capsule regimen. i however still believe it would be useful. one main obstacle to data analysis of mufg events so far is that, people display a huge variation in what they put in, for how long they let it sit, etc... the analysis of data like this, however requires huge numbers of observations, very, very precise and reliable data and, most importantly, certain distributions of different capsule use parameters. but an experimental study, where some things are tightly controlled and planned out, may give quality answers with a smaller sample of mufg capsule behavior observations. so: how many people would be up for a study of this kind? please answer the poll, and indicate if you would be in general willing to participate in such a study. and leave your comments in the ... comments section.

I would participate in such a study.
I would NOT participate in such a study.

True Glyph Hack Story! 

Just walking down our L7 farm, glyphhacking like hell, going for the gold badge...

Trying to hack again, bonus items still flying at me from the previous hacks, hack window closes.
"No, already??"
Taping item summaries away, tap, tap, tap, "Oh, a VR shield, cool", tap, tap, tap "Yes, 2000 items... man... again..."
OK, [OPS], check Resos, "OK, another 80 R7 have to go", recycle, back, open closest portal, hold [Hack].

A car suddenly stops right next to me. "Dammit, my hack?!?"

- "Hey, is there a grocery store here?"
Check Scanner, [Incoming Glyph sequence] ...

Raise arm, point, quickly look at the car, "Yes, over there! Down the street, then to the left"

Check scanner, a glyph just disappeared. "DAMMIT"

- "Thanks, man!" Car heading off

Check scanner, seeing |FEAR| , |DISCOVER| , |COURAGE|

Elevated awareness by strong exposure to glyph sequences kicks in!

"...the first must be ... |CAPTURE|, right?"


Check Scanner

Speed Bonus, 66%


Perfect Glyph hack, 8 GP, two happy guys finding their way to their lunch and another 20 R7 and X7 to recycle - all within roughly 15 seconds

Ich postuliere: Man muss den Wurstlink vom Klolink unterscheiden.

Der Wurstlink ist doof, weil der quer durch ein mehrfach linkbares Gebiet geht und weitere links verhindert
Der Klolink hingegen ist Teil eines mehrlagigen Feldes (wie ein gutes Toilettenpapier).

I postulate: You have to differentiate between a sausage link and a toilet link.

The sausage link (wurst link? bratwurst link?) is bad, mmmkay, because it crosses a linkable area and prevents further links.
The toilet link is good because it is part of a multi layer field (like a soft toilet tissue)

Wondering if @rbfly +Rebecca B and @wrenegade +Christina Wrenegade will host a show next week where they explain how the teams plan their mega links with using, no third party software and always staying within the ToS 😁
