If you are going to put an Operation up, LEAVE IT UP! Stop taking them down! It is ridiculous that I cannot do anything on Elite because you stop it before it starts! If you have no intentions of letting the operation go through, then stop putting them up to make us seem like idiots the day of.
In Beta, there were no problems with the Compete section. Operations did not disappear and everyone did them and you could win prizes and badges. This has been a load of bull so far. It worked in Beta, so what is the problem now? Stop screwing those who paid for Elite over!
