    Like a natural disaster badge? It seems to be the biggest draw for swarms: Heatpocolypse, Snowpocoplyse, Earthquakepocolypse...
  • HarjifangkiHarjifangki August 2011
    Maybe we need more disaster to get these swarm badges.

    Look out for an Irenepocalypse later this week somewhere on the US East Coast as the hurricane comes ashore.

    @RainWave23 with mobile web somebody check in can't last more than 3 - 4 hours but i already tested check in with phone app, it stay longer. my acc already 5 hours check in and it still showing that i'm not leaving the venue
  • JR1JR1 October 2011
    @jimmyongah You will "stay" at the venue until you checkin somewhere else no matter how you checkin to a venue. However no matter how you checkin after you are at a venue for 3-4 hrs you will no longer be able to get any badges that become available at that venue unless you checkin again. It's a time out feature to prevent people from checking into a venue and just sitting there wating to get a badge forever. Just like how they changed it from allowing you to get all the swarm badges on 1 checkin to now it only allows you to get 1 swarm badge per checkin.
