Monday, December 31st, 2012

image-contest-2012-banner

A new year is here! 2012 felt like it went by so fast, but of course it left us with a lot of memories. Have you captured your SocioTown memories this year? If so, share it with us in this nostalgic edition of SocioTown’s Image Contest!

Along with your entries, send in a short story or explanation as to why the picture is very memorable to you. Send it to my email (dawn@sociotown-dot-com) or through a private message over at the discussion area. I’ll pick a couple of entries to feature in the blog, and those who will be picked will receive 100 SoBucks each. Deadline for the contest will be on January 12, 2013. Edit: The contest will be extended until January 19.

Reminisce your 2012 SocioTown experiences and share your images with everyone! :)

A Burger Despot Advert?

Sunday, December 30th, 2012

Here is Midgit’s video for the past Burger Despot Image Contest. Since the contest focused on images, this entry wasn’t qualified for that. But since it’s too bad to not share this, here is his video now featured in the blog. Enjoy! :D

We have finally chosen an entry to become our Christmas profile picture for SocioTown’s FB page. Here is Kobejuwan’s entry, with him and his friends wearing Christmas outfits and jackets. One seems to be a bee, though. 

Congratulations, Kobejuwan! We’ll send your prize soon. As for the other entries, even though it didn’t win, I’ll still compile it and make it into a  cover photo for the holidays. I’ll post it later. :)

Thanks for joining, everyone! Merry Christmas!

Pigeon mail is so convenient. But if you want to share your Christmas message to a lot of people, sending the word can be quite a hassle.

No worries, though. If you want to share a Christmas message this holiday, all you have to do is post your greetings below. We’ll be picking three wonderful, funny, and heartwarming Christmas letters to share on Christmas day!

Exciting, isn’t it? So share your Christmas messages below and we’ll choose the best ones this weekend. :)

Since it’s Christmas time, I’ll add it in the stores immediately so you can buy it at once. You can specify a date, if you want.

For this edition of the Room Design Contest, the theme is about Christmas and a room that looks so comfortable, even Santa would love to stop by. Additional details for the contest can be found in this blog post.

You don’t have to re-decorate your whole apartment. One room will suffice. Snap a screenshot of your room and send it to my email or through a private message in the forum. Don’t forget to add your SocioTown name and your apartment address.

Good luck and have fun! :)

Behind The Keyboard: Midgit

Wednesday, December 12th, 2012

midgit_btk

Howdy, y’all!

It’s been a while since our last Behind The Keyboard. For this edition of BTK, we have Midgit!

In this interview, this sociable Socian from the UK shares his hobbies, his dislike for rain, and his Coin Catchers experience (if you’ve read our recent SocioTown Journal, you’ll know who he’s talking about ;) ).

It took a while for our interview to conclude, but we wrapped it up pretty good and his BTK feature is finally here. It was quite a fun interview, and I hope you’ll enjoy reading about him and his experiences. :)

Without further ado, here’s Midgit! Get to know more of him under the cut.
