    You DO know that solar panels on the dark side of the moon are fully functional, do you not? 

    Just because WE cannot see that side does not stop the sun shining on it most of the time ;-) 

    Have fun
    Yes, they literally work...half the time? Was I being too generous? :-)
    They DO work all the time.

    If the sun does not shine, they get a lot of reflected light from Earth.

    You can also place them in a crater near the pole on the dark side. 100 % illumination.

    Like SQ42 ... do it the smart way ... and it works. 100 % of the time. At optimal performance. Even if it takes some time to get there. Like the solar panels on the lunar poles on the rim of a dark side crater.
    Moon's rotation around its own axis and rotation around Earth both take same amount of time, and as a result same side of the Moon is always visible from Earth.

    Which means Dark side of the Moon is never visible from Earth and never gets any light reflected from Earth either.
  • Characters will need to poop in Star Citizen....

    I'm going to object if you have to go to toilet to do it. If it's not your spaceship you should be able to do it wherever as long as you aren't caught or it's not realistic.

    wait wait wait, they made an organized event, sold tickets, and then didn't concider the growth of netusage in that area?

    pure genius :)
    Considering they (niantic) have no control over the wireless data network, wouldn't matter if they had...I find it HIGHLY unlikely the mobile providers would bring in additional temporary data capacity for a one day event. Suits got about as much traction as molasses running uphill.
    Niantic did plan the event with network providers and some of them also brought additional bandwidth for the event:

  • VR, please be unique, and release quailty

    Whey is this here and not The Pub ?....... I lost all faith except Pantheon Rise of the Fallen   
    Then you should abandon all faith completely.

    Expecting that X will be an exception is stupid. A small child might consider not doing his homework because the teacher might be sick tomorrow. An adult should know better and not expect and exception to happen just because you wish it would happen this time out of all the possible times.
