I’ve accomplished my goal! I am now the mayor of something. Actually two places:
-the Vilas Park Shelter
-Vilas Zoo Primates
Yeah, not too exciting. This is one of the interesting things about FourSquare: You can make pretty much anything ⎯ be it a house, a restaurant, or a random park bench ⎯ a place for yourself and others to check-in to. That maximizes the possibilities for mayorship, but it also minimizes its importance. As a mayor, am I on the same level as someone who is the mayor of a more popular space, like, say, the Majestic? Or Humanities? (I don’t know who these people are who are mayors of school buildings, but I respect the dedication.) Honestly, I don’t think I am on the same level, and if being a mayor can mean that I rule part of the zoo, then I think being a mayor is a little questionable overall. What does it mean? Who cares?
Then again, being mayor of the primates house is a little cool.
