Isn't it just a couple of 70 year old guys with a board and some rope. No seriously, there are organizations that create these things. They plan it out on paper, then do the work. Takes them about half a night.

I believe these Aliens to be helpers of Human kind but can't land here due to the Atmosphere being one they can't adjust too.
The levels of pollution would be a good indication. So you seriously think there are actual advanced beings doing this? The patterns are fairly detailed I'd say, makes you wonder.

Not sure what you mean here but if your suggesting that some do it just to stick it up people who accept most formations are made by 'ufos' for a sake of an appropriate term, then for how long could they continue to be motivated by 'Lets stick it up these xyz stupid people."
It would seem to me that to make a passable home made crop formation would take considerable time, effort and resources to make a formation of such quality that many would accept as real.
Any less quality than passable and they would only make themselves look silly.
In any event, it would be difficult to remain motivated beyond 3-4 such events. By then they would have had their laugh, proven their point and lost motivation to do any more.
If the claims that all or most formations are fake then a lot of motivation, energy, time and resources would need to be spent to continue making them, in one night, on a sustainable basis.
Think of all walking around the surveying team would do in the crop. How might they conceal their tread marks? - by walking only where the crop was going to be layed over. But how would they know which part of the crop would be layed over until they had done at least some of the surveying?
How would they see the short stakes they had put into the crop on previous nights?
How do they walk from the fence to the formation site without leaving tread marks in the crop?
Where would they park their vehicles without being seen 5 nights a week.
its getting less plausiable all the time to my mind

That's fair but... what was the original purpose of creating the first (recorded) crop circles?
To mimic? To fool others?
From my research the first ones recorded (as hoaxes) were to mimic the "saucer nest" in Australia.
So, although they have become elaborate - their origin appears to be that of a "UFO/Alien" origin.

I live in Wiltshire.
Google on "Circlemakers".
It's not Aliens, it just isn't.
With computers and tech stuff they keep getting better and better. Compare early circles and modern ones and you can see them evolving into ever more complex patterns.
And please I hope no one starts going on about bent nodes and whatnot.

Then why were the first crop circles not this intricate?
We can clearly see the evolution with the aid of computer tech over the decades in crop circles. Human evolution.
Aliens can only write us messages in corn? They can only flatten it instead of cutting it all halfway down or something more impressive?
They also can only flatten it in the same way as if people walked on it with boards????
They can't crush it straight down and pulverize it with much greater force, they can only apply similar force to a man walking on it with wood????
Has anyone produced a video of ufos over a field the day before crop circles?
Has anyone searched for some underground groups of crop circle makers that are seeking members?
So we have a planet with life all over it, technology, science, but designs in fields must come from life somewhere else?
Ugh, this crap keeps the ufo field firmly in the wu-wu lane.
