    when this badges can active ??????
  • ChaunceChaunce May 2011
    We aren't sure. Probably any day now.
  • This badge is live now.

    There are a few venues beyond the beltway.
    But none in Illinois, despite the current President of the United States of America being from here.
    Not even the statue of Civil War General John A. Logan, who represented Illinois in the U.S. House of Representatives, has its local statue referred in. {Its local statue shouldn't be downtown anyhow. It needs to be relocated to Logan Square [doh]. But that is another issue.}

  • You guys are the best! Not only do you have this info BEFORE any of the other blogs/badge sites, but you had that it was upcoming when the others didn't even have it on their radar. This site has the most foursquare information, and is the fastest!
  • ChaunceChaunce May 2011
    Thank you for your support. We have always worked very hard at getting badge info to our fans as quickly as possible.
  • you're the best guys!! Thanks from Italy...

  • ChaunceChaunce May 2011
    I am not sure I understand your question, you can't check in to multiple venues at one time.
  • JR1JR1 May 2011
    no.. you cant checkin to 5 venues right in a row and get credit for all of them. Check out this post for more info http://www.mattersofgrey.com/forum/discussion/6/foursquare-mobile-web-site#Item_9 The checkins can be in one day just have to be spread out.

    Not sure if this is retired?

    Tried locations listed by AlexJunior, did not unlocked. All check-ins spaced out over a few hours and I made sure I earned points in each check-in.

    Anyone else had better luck?

  • ChaunceChaunce November 2011
    Yes, that is why we have it listed as retired and @JR1 mentioned that it was retired, plus it is on our List and all social networks as retired
  • DreaStarrDreaStarr November 2011
    awesome, just know this morning i seen it still on the active list, i didnt even read this thread till after i checked in at the last place. haha.
  • ChaunceChaunce November 2011
    It is possible that we may not have changed it yet or that the page you had may have been the cached version still showing it as active. Bummer that you weren't able to unlock it though
