    WIll the same venues open both badges?
  • ChaunceChaunce April 2011
    I imagine it would be possible seeing as how you can get other badges at the same time too.
  • TriZzzTriZzz April 2011
    To get this badge, I checked into La Banquise 3 days in a row between the hours listed above.
  • Is this badge separate from the metro badge?
  • TriZzzTriZzz April 2011
    Yes. They look the same, but one is an English version and the other is have to follow two different brands and the venues are different.
  • I lost metro journal badge which i inlock in apr 2,i recheck again today for the 3rd time but no badge,pse advice tks
  • vecvec April 2011
    Did you delete the unlock checkin? The badge will be deleted if you did.
  • I think i did that,i have to recheckin 3 days in a row again to unlock back that badge if i'm not wrong
  • Thanks Vec,i got back my badge:-)
  • dhlewis02 May 2011
    Do the checkin's have to occur 3 days in a row? I have checked in at venue La Banquise more than three times between 6 and 9 and have not unlocked the badge. Any ideas?
  • JR1JR1 May 2011
    Yes the checkins have to be 3 days in a row between 6a-9am local time
  • ring_tail May 2011
    The check-ins do need to be between 6-9am but the day does not have to be a weekday. I unlocked the badge with an 8am check-in on a Saturday.
  • vecvec May 2011
    Checkins could be anytime before noon EST. I unlocked it after 11am EST
  • ChaunceChaunce May 2011

    thanks @TriZzz
  • ChaunceChaunce July 2011
    Can anyone confirm that this is only Montreal? Or if any other cites can unlock this?
  • TymoraTymora July 2011
    @Chaunce I only see 1 venue in their list that isn't in montreal so if u give me 3 days I can test it
  • BrenBren July 2011
    all my friends unlocked with only Montreal venues. might be because we live in Montreal and no jumping involved tho
  • TymoraTymora July 2011
    @Chaunce I just finished testing. I unlocked the badge at this venue:
    which doesn't list an address and this venue:
    which is in Outremont, Quebec. These are the only two venues that were not listed as "Montreal" venues on the list of recommended venues.
  • BeerknurdBeerknurd July 2011
    I just followed the badge directions and did not receive the badge. Can someone confirm it is still active? I got points for my checkins and did them 3 consecutive days.
  • RainWave23RainWave23 July 2011
    If you read above in @Tymora comment, she unlocked it at 6:18am this morning, which means it's still active.

    My guess is your check-ins weren't during the specified time, or were rapid fire and didn't count, or because of travel time didn't count.
  • choad17choad17 July 2011
    I used this venue - La Banquise
    Did you make sure you checked in before 6am and 12pm local time?
  • BeerknurdBeerknurd July 2011
    @RainWave Ok, so when you say "local time" is it the time that it lists in your history? All of my checkins fall between the correct times. They are not rapid checkins because I got points for all of them. Currently it is 9:38 CST where I am. When I check in, it says the time in Montreal, QC is 10:38. Not sure why I can't unlock it. I have been in Montreal, QC for 3 days an have not left so I know travel time is not an issue. Any suggestions?
  • RainWave23RainWave23 July 2011
    hmmm....if they are not rapid fire and no travel issue, I'm not sure why you haven't unlocked it. You're using venues listed above? If so, I'd keep trying them for another day or so.

    And yes by local time that's what I mean.
  • BeerknurdBeerknurd July 2011
    Ok, I will try again tomorrow and post my results. Thanks
  • BeerknurdBeerknurd July 2011
    This may be the problem. The unlock instructions may need to be updated above. It's not 12 local time it is 9.

    This badge can be unlocked by first following Journal Metro this is a different profile page than the regular metro badge. To unlock this badge you will need to check-in 3 days in a row (confirmed) between 6 – 9 am EST at Metro locations (Montreal) from their foursquare page.
  • JR1JR1 July 2011
    Several of us have unlocked the badge after 9am. That has been on their page since the badge has been active. When I unlocked the badge it was after 9am local time. A quick search on twitter will show unlocks after 9am everyday. The unlock instructions we have posted are correct.
  • BeerknurdBeerknurd July 2011
    Well I am going to start over again and try to unlock it before 9 to see if that works for me. If it was before 12 I would have unlocked it this morning. That is the only reason I can find as to why it didn't unlock.
  • BeerknurdBeerknurd July 2011
    From my history... And I know that these were not rapid checkins.
