From Foursquare’s community rep comes the clearest set of “rules” for the game I’ve seen. They boil down to these seven commandments:
- Check in only where you are â€“ once.
- Don’t do drive-by or walk-by check ins.
- If you’re at the supermarket, check in there; if you’re at dinner, check in there; if you sit in the park, check in there, but just keep it reasonable.
- Don’t add fake tags.
- Don’t check into places where you are not to try to get badges or mayorships.
- Don’t post spammy tips.
- Just play fair and keep it fun and useful!
