Foursquare rolled out a feature which alerts you when you're within 10 check-ins of becoming the mayor; "when you check-in to a venue on Foursquare via a mobile app, and you're getting close to winning a Mayorship (within 10 check-ins), you'll now see how far away you're from ousting the current Mayor," informs Foursquare.

Here's how Mayorships work: "To become Mayor of a place, you need to have checked in more days than anyone else over the last two months (60 days), so only one check-in per day counts. Oh, you also need to have uploaded a profile photo from your settings page (no one wants a faceless dictatorship!). Also made changes that prevent registered "Managers" and "Employees" from becoming Mayors of their own venues."
