-The League Team-
We’ve seen over four years go by and tens of thousands of communities join since the inception of the Silph League. It’s about time you have an easy to find, shareable hub for all of your community’s info. With support from Niantic, we’re happy to introduce Community Pages!

🗺 What are Community Pages?
Community Pages are your gateway to a community, helping new members find and learn about groups in their areas more easily. They're linked to your Discord or Telegram group with their own customizable URL, and shows information like:

📍 Community name, logo, and location
💬 Language(s) spoken in your server
🔗 Links to community social media accounts
👔 List of current admins and staff
🗓 Upcoming and past events
❗️ And much more!

Learn more about Community Pages: https://thesilphroad.com/news/introducing-community-pages/

💪 Level Up Your Community Rank
Communities can progress through 9 Ranks (organized into 3 tiers) by hosting meetups, tournaments, completing community tasks, and generally being a positive, healthy space for their members. Any community can reach the top tiers, not just the ones with the most members.

🏅 The Niantic Community Ambassador Program
Admins of communities that reach Rank 4 will have the opportunity to join a special Community Ambassadors Program in conjunction with Niantic. This program will give opportunities to provide feedback, the ability to have your Community Day meetups show on the Local Meetups Map, and more!

Learn more about the Community Ambassador Program and how it works with the SIlph Road here: https://thesilphroad.com/science/quick-discovery/introducing-community-pages

Parting Words
It’s been an incredible journey building this network of communities and travelers with you over the years, and we’re so excited to help bring back some of that magic of the first Community Day meetups in 2018.

Travel safe,
- The Silph Road Team -

👋 We've been asked more and more lately if The Silph League will be adding check-ins for Community Day Classic events.
At the time we were unsure if these events would be a regular occurrence in the Pokémon GO world, but it seems they are here to stay! With that in mind, we will be opening November's Community Day Classic event for check-ins as we would for a regular Community Day. As of right now, this is a one off and a way to gauge uplift in activities for your communities. Because of this, there will be no assets released as there would normally be. But watch this space, this may change in the future.
