Badge In FourSquare

For a long time, Wikipedia was the main source for information on foursquare badges. Unfortunately, Wikipedia has (for one reason or another) decided to delete their page. Bad news for foursquare users! However, thekruser has answered your cries for help!

Due to popular demand, I have decided to create my own foursquare Badge List. This list will continue to grow, but changes will not be annotated as being new. Each update or change will be announced in a blog post. To ensure you are updated, follow me on twitter, or subscribe to my RSS feed. If you have an addition or correction, please either add a comment or use the “Contact Me” link above.

Thanks to all who have helped in the past and who will help in the future. It is for people like you that I am maintaining this page.

This listing is split up into three categories: General Badges (can be obtained anywhere), City Specific Badges (only obtainable if you are in the specified city), and Event Badges (badges created for specific events). Keep in mind, some events move from city to city depending on the date. Currently, I have no information on whether a badge created for an event hosted in one city will be obtainable when the event changes venue. Also, some event badges are city specific — meaning the event is only held in one city. I am keeping those badges in the Event Badges.
