Niantic has posted the first in a series of weekly decoding challenges on the Ingress Community Forums. We had a lot of fun decoding this, for definitions of fun that involved brief periods of frustration. We’re looking forward to the next in the series. But of course we at Not Niantic have to do things the opposite of Niantic.
So we are going to run a coding challenge. We’ll give you plaintext, and your job is to encode it in some way. Binary, Morse code, ROT13, rebus, hide it in a crossword puzzle, whatever.
Hide this code somewhere, and let us see if we can figure out what you did. We might even dig up some actual good codes in exchange.
