Frequently Asked Questions
What is Moonwalk?
Please check out our About page for more info.
How do I link my Foursquare account (or any location-based service) to Moonwalk?
If you initially didn't link your account when you first signed up for Moonwalk, yo can link your account on the Settings page in the Foursquare connection box. In the future, we will be supporting other location-based services.
How do I check-in to a venue on Moonwalk?
If you have linked your Moonwalk account to Foursquare or other location-based services, you will automatically be checked-in on Moonwalk.
How do I change my current check-in?
By default, Moonwalk will have you checked into a place for three hours. After the three hour period, your check-in will be dropped.
How long do you store my check-in data?
While your check-in data is stored forever, we only utilize this data within three hours of when you have last checked in to a venue.
How long do you store my questions/answers?
All question and answer data is stored forever.
What can other users find out about me on Moonwalk?
The only required piece of information that will always be shared on your profile page is your first name and last initial. It is up to you what other information you would like to share with other users.
Can other Moonwalk users see my entire check-in history?
Not at all. If another Moonwalk user visits your user profile page they will be able to see venues and questions you have asked and answered questions about, but not your complete check-in history.
Can other Moonwalk users see where I'm checked in?
The only way another Moonwalk user can know if you may be checked into a venue is if you answer a question you have been asked. We do display the number of MW users checked in to a venue, but we do not reveal individual names or other personal information.
If I connect Moonwalk with Foursquare what information am I sharing?
You are only sharing your check-in data with us.
What if I don't feel like answering a question?
Simply ignore the question. You will only be asked once. A future enhancement will allow you to turn off all notifications from the WN service for a specified period of time.
Do I have to be a Foursquare user?
No, but we encourage you to sign up. Our service is only valuable if users are answering questions.
What's Next for Moonwalk?
Our next big push is to develop an Android and an iPhone app. We would also like to begin adding additional location based services.
