christmas teaser picChristmas is still weeks away, but we’re already cooking up holiday surprises for everyone! The first surprise will be on December 1st. Announcements of contests and events will follow. If you have any suggestion for the upcoming holiday, drop by at the comment section below. Want a hint for the surprise?

New Image Contest Round (burgers, anyone?)

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

burger-despot

Seems like Phil needs some help with advertising. So he has asked if we can include Burger Despot in one of our contests. Don’t worry, he’ll be generous to the winner. ;)

For this round, the theme will be about Burger Despot. Snap a picture of you or your friends selling burgers, relaxing in the fast food joint, or eating some fries. It’s all up to you, as long as it’s all about Burger Despot. Improve your chances of winning by being creative and fun!

Send your images to my email or as a private message in the forum (this method is preferred). To learn how to take a screenshot, visit this site: http://take-a-screenshot.org/ or read this post. Deadline will be on December 5, Wednesday. The winner will receive 100 SoBucks, plus a surprise gift from Phil! :)

Best Friend Appreciation Post

Tuesday, November 27th, 2012

best-friends-2011-foxrider

There are times when we want to share a laugh, divulge a secret, or confide your worries with someone. It’s not always something we can easily do with anyone, but only with a best friend.

Best friends can brighten up your day and cheer you up from your gloom. You can do wacky and silly things together, lend an ear to listen to each other’s problems, and help you laugh your fears away.

It’s always way fun when you’re fishing at River Creek with your close pal. How about chasing bugs around the park? Even training for a race or boxing match can be easy peasy when you’re with your best chums.

Foxrider has come up with this image of his best friends in SocioTown. He must treasure his SocioTown best friends very much to dedicate an image for them. It’s because of this picture that I thought of a Best Friend Appreciation Post in the blog.

So let your best friend(s) know today that you appreciate them. You may send them a letter through pigeon mail, give them a gift, or just chat with them. Any gesture of appreciation could make your best friend’s day complete.

Thanks for sharing this image, Foxrider! :)

New: Biker Outfits!

Sunday, November 25th, 2012

biker-new

Remember that little teaser we made for a new set of clothes? Well, here it is! The new get-up to be featured this chilly season: Biker Outfits!

We have a sandy blonde-like hair with a blue bandanna for the ladies, and a cool hairstyle in a star-filled blue bandanna for the guys. These outfits also have tough-looking jackets and pants with intricate designs, zippers and belts. These also have long boots to keep your toes comfy as you drive in your bikes, and jewelry that goes well with the overall look. Pretty cool, huh.

These dashing biker wear are perfect for your mopeds. Roam around town riding your scooters in these cool outfits. More info will be released soon, and they will be available in Trendiiz and Gee-Cue in the future, so watch out for them. ;)

Thanksgiving Caption Image

“Happy Thanksgiving, BillyRob!
Here’s a dance to cheer you up.
For all your hard work
I think I owe you a turk,
but please don’t hug the queen bug!”

-Mrcarim

Even though we can always be grateful anytime for the numerous blessings we receive, Thanksgiving has been a day to commemorate all of our thankful feelings. The SocioTown crew hopes that you had a very happy Thanksgiving Day last Thursday. We also would like to thank each one of you for your continuing support to SocioTown. To celebrate this wonderful occasion, we had a Thanksgiving edition of our Caption Contest, and finally here is the result.

Our fellow Socian Mrcarim has expressed his thanks in the caption entry you can read above. It’s short, funny, and full of thanks to our resident bug trader BillyRob, and it’s the winning entry of our contest!

Congrats, Mrcarim. Enjoy your prize of 100 SoBucks! To all who submitted their caption entries, thank you for joining. I hope to see you again in future rounds. Credits to Flamerz for the image.

As for you BillyRob, you can get your turkey but don’t hug the queen bug please. What will our bug catchers do if you took a day off for a huge bee sting?! :lol:

flamerz2

Let’s congratulate our Image Contest: Buddies winner - Flamerz! He has captured this fantastic image of him and his friends hanging out at the park. They’re all neatly posed, their outfits are great, and they look like they’re having a lot of fun! That must have been a lovely day at the park. (Woah, even the Pumpkin Man is there! Kinda spooky and funny, don’t you think? :lol:)

Congrats, Flamerz! Not only do you get 100 SoBucks, your image will also be the new profile picture of SocioTown’s Facebook page.

Flamerz is a long-time Socian who also loves to create SocioTown videos. He has won the Director’s Contest before, and the previous profile pic in the Facebook page is his too. Good job!

The image rounds so far are full of excellent entries. Thanks to everyone who joined this week. See you again in future Image Contest rounds. ;)

We have a lot to be thankful for this year, despite the obstacles we have faced. To celebrate this special holiday, SocioTown gives you a Thanksgiving edition of our Caption Contest.

The best Thanksgiving caption will have 100 SoBucks, plus a Franklin’s Furniture gift.

Be creative with your entries, but the most important thing is to be thankful and have fun. Deadline will be this Saturday, November 24, 12 midnight Socio time. The image for this round is contributed by Flamerz. Thanks, Flamerz! :)
