This shouldn’t be the case.
As long as the Gowalla spot has the correct 4SQ Venue id attached to it, it should still count towards all points, badges, mayorships etc when you cross post from Gowalla.
Are there certain spots you’ve been having trouble with?
Posting over on getsatisfaction.com/gowalla is the quickest way to get these resolved usually 🙂
Thanks Simon. My next question is whether locations created using
Gowalla would have this Foursquare Venue ID or whether that has to be
done in Foursquare too. Do you know?
I don’t think if you created a new spot in Gowalla it would instantly get the 4SQ id attached to it if a spot on 4SQ already existed. It takes a little while for them to work through and add everything, from what I’ve heard it’s mostly being done by hand as well!
But if there are spots you create and want them paired with 4SQ quicker, then hit Get Satisfaction and post them there.
That what you mean?
