Love Mom? Enter The Mother’s Day Badge

We’re happy to announce a new badge to add to your stash. Earn the Mother’s Day badge by blipping a song in her honor and including the hashtag #iheartmom. We will feature all these Blips in a special #iheartmom channel in the Tag Tuner. You can only earn the badge between now and end of 11:59 PDT on Mother’s Day (May 9th).

Also included in tonight’s maintenance were some other improvements to the badges system. All badges are now calculated relative to a particular user’s timezone (you can set that on the account settings page) and not just what we store in our database. We also adjusted the Big Spender and Headliner badges to look at a true 24 hour trailing time period, so no longer do the props you get / receive in order to earn these badges have to fall witihin the same day, just in the past 24 hours.

Thanks for Blipping!
