As of last night, raids are now available to players 25 and up, and at a "wide variety of gyms" throughout the world. I've got two gyms in map-sight of home; one of them has a level one raid this hour, and the other has a level four raid coming up in a bit over an hour. Hopefully an achievable raid comes soon to a gym near you!

blathering about my suburban raid experience thus far )

Gyms are live!

Iiiiiiiiinteresting!

I like the new battle pre screen, and the animation of fights.

New battle scoring on the one hand slows things down (you eat away at the defenders will to fight rather than 1000 points per win) on the other hand I like how the "injured" pokemon gets weaker. Also having revive and health available inside the gym interface

Winning a gym = getting a badge, but just claiming a gym slot does not, and nor does spinning a gym picture, which is what the text suggests.

No sign of coins for having pokemon on a gym...
<- artifacts of my posting about experiences in the first 30 mins or so of gyms being live.

How is everyone else getting on?

New update rolling out

The update with all of the previously mentioned changes is hitting the app stores! My android phone just got it.

(Gyms are still disabled, however.)

After over a month of connection difficulty at work (thirty miles from where I live) but not at home, I thought the problem had finally resolved itself, and right on time for the Fire and Ice event!

Unfortunately, my issue began again earlier this afternoon (er, yesterday afternoon), and this time where I live rather than where I work. I lost my connection, was unable to log in after restarting the app and twice restarting my phone, and the app is now "unable to authenticate" my account since, in a fit of desperation, I decided to try re-entering my login information.

A quick Google search (which I should probably have tried ages ago) reveals that this is apparently a common problem for people logging in with their Pokemon Trainer Club account, of which I am one.

If anyone knows of a way to fix this, I'd love to hear it; I really don't want to just start a new game with a fresh account, but I also don't want to drive half an hour on the off-chance that being in the city where I work helps.

Edit: Force-closing the app also didn't help.

Edit 2: The fantabulous [personal profile] catness has provided a working fix! I will note that I had to do a bit of extra searching to find an old version of Pokemon Go to install, and fiddle with my phone's settings to allow it to boot, but it did indeed work.

I will also note that some searching tells me that the PTC login issue is only a problem on Android phones; iPhones seem to have no problem logging in with either account type.

So I was just out restocking on items and discovered some places where I couldn't get them, because the pokestop I was going for had become a (currently disabled) gym. Of course once the updates hit and we can spin gyms, this will be all for the better. Meanwhile, I checked out a few local hot spots and estimate that about 10% of existing pokestop locations have converted to gyms. Now that only six people will be able to get on a gym at once, more is certainly welcome!

Spawn points are a little harder to pin down, but I'm pretty sure new spawns have been added as well. I'm very familiar with the possible points in my neighborhood, and just saw quite a few spawns at new locations. Particularly noticeable was the fact that I got several spawn smack in the middle of the road, which almost never happened before and I thought was a no-no to keep kids from wandering into the street (not that you can't reach them from the sidewalk). I almost wonder if someone at Niantic forgot to run a not_on_roads filter when generating a new batch of points... we'll have to see if they stick around.

New Gym Mechanics Revealed

Jun. 19th, 2017 10:31 am
inkstone: The Gotcha screen from Pokemon Go (PokeGo)
[personal profile] inkstone posting in [community profile] pokestop
There are a lot of changes, so just go read the entire post!

In a nutshell:
  • You'll be able to get items from gyms like you can pokestops.

  • Each gym defender must be unique. (i.e. No stacking Blisseys).

  • Gyms will now only have 6 defenders!

  • Gym defenders must be kept motivated via berries or they'll return to their trainers. (I think this is a way to let more people interact with gyms even when all slots are filled?)

  • We'll earn gym badges.

  • The Collaborative Feature: Raid Battles - Basically, from time to time, a Raid Boss will take over gyms -- kicking out all current defenders -- and trainers will have to work together to beat the Raid Boss.

Gyms are going to be disabled in a few hours, so get your bonuses ASAP if you haven't already. ETA 12:41 PM EDT: Gyms have been disabled.

[personal profile] beatrice_otter posting in [community profile] vorkosigan
Thought up by Royce Day on the Bujold mailing list:
Honestly, there's a fanfic to written about what the poor Betan
Ambassador to Barrayar was doing during the whole mess with Cordelia's
defection to Barrayar, marriage to a war criminal, and then bringing
back Vordarian's head at the climax of the coup.
That is a fic I would love to read.

Title: The Coronation of the High Hierophant (AO3) | (Teaspoon)
Author:[personal profile] circular_time
Rating: T
Pairing(s)/Character(s): Fifth Doctor/Nyssa (mostly platonic)
Word Count: 51K Words, 8 chapters, IT'S DONE IT'S FINALLY DONE
Summary: On a human colony where Baroque France and classical Rome are so far in Earth’s legendary past that both are mined for “wisdom of the ancients,” the Fifth Doctor and Nyssa are swept into a fantastic world of pageantry, allegory, advanced gravitational engineering, dance and court intrigue.
The Doctor believes Nyssa has found true love. Nyssa believes she has found someone who needs their help. After the Doctor leaves Nyssa to her new life, she’s forced to embrace the masquerade far more deeply than she had intended. Will the Doctor defy the Web of Time to extricate her from the jaws of history?

Bujo Gear in Unexpected Places

I went for a little ramble today and on a whim popped into the gift shop for the Tower of London and found... these:



It's certainly not where I expected to find tea cup sticky tabs and washi tape (although they don't call it that, of course), but I snapped them right up!

Have you found Bujo supplies in unexpected places?

Monthly and Weekly Spreads

[personal profile] peartreealley posting in [community profile] bujo
I've been Bujo-ing in various incarnations for a couple of years now, and while I'm great at the journaling and collections aspects of Bujo, the use of it as a planner I constantly fall down on. I make a spread for the week or the month and then completely forget about it. Oops.

I know there are a eleventy-billion examples of logs and spreads on the 'net, but I'm wondering which sorts of monthly/weekly spreads/logs have been most successful for the community in keeping you organized? Which ones haven't worked? Why? How much info do you put on it? Elaborate? Minimalist? How often do you refer to it? How do you keep it from getting lost and forgotten 30 pages later?

(I feel like this is a ridiculous question, but clearly I haven't found a good answer on my own.)
