    They went back and renamed the badge. Retired the other one and started this one for the new name. Did not realize they just renamed the badge until I looked in my trophy case and noticed the badge was renamed.

    Unlock this badge today. But I did сhekin only 5 times in the same place.

    I think the new rules, all the badges in section Expertise are the same. 5 times in the same place, or 3 at different places.

    Anyone having problems leveling up their Monkey Bars or Swimmies badges ? I've checked into 5 playgrounds or 5 pools/beaches but cannot level up this 2 badges.
  • jimmyongahjimmyongah February 2012
    @jamok make sure you got point when you c/i at expertise venue to level up your badge, sometime it took 6 c/i to level up
  • jamokjamok February 2012
    @jimmyongah every single c/i's get a point; no errors and i've done 15 playgrounds with no leveling up. I've unlocked Monkey Bars badge at level 5 but can't seem to progress beyond that.

    @jamok i'll try with my test acc and let you know later.... :)
  • jamokjamok February 2012
    @jimmyongah Thanks a bunch for helping out, much appreciated :D
  • jimmyongahjimmyongah February 2012
    @jamok i just unlocked the Level 6 "Monkey Bars" badge on @foursquare! ; also make sure never repeat c/i to venue twice in order to get the expertise badge level up. it means the venue should be the new one or the one that you never c/i before, must get point for each c/i and you should c/i to 43 - 45 different venue in a same category to get level 10
  • jamokjamok February 2012
    @jimmyongah Thanks for the confirmation; guess i just have to keep on trying. It's frustrating cos i managed to move most of the other expertise badges to level 10 except this one and Swimmies ...
  • jamokjamok February 2012
    I finally found out why i couldn't level up despite c/i to 15 playgrounds with points :D

    I checked through my c/i history and there were 21 playground c/i. 11 were without points but when i c/i to the 21st playground, 4sq gave me a level 5 badge. So i deleted the last c/i which gave me the badge, i c/i to another playground and now i have a level 2 monkey bar.

    So maybe this was a glitch in the system and hope this can help others who are facing the same problem.
