Grand Winner for 2012 Memories — Michael22

Sunday, January 27th, 2013


michael22

Here is our grand winner for Image Contest: 2012 Memories — Michael22! His entry, like Maraa’s, is a compilation of his fond memories of the past year. Here is his story:

“This is my entry for Image Contest: 2012 memories. These pictures are really memorable to me because I got to meet new friends in SocioTown, and I found my true love (lehguns). It is also memorable because a new staff member (you) came and made so many changes in SocioTown that I was always excited to play the game. I will also never forget my best friends because they are very special to me. Happy New Year!”

Congratulations, Michael22! Keep making more wonderful memories this year too. 2013 is just starting — let’s fill our year with memorable moments!

For the rest of the winners, you will be receiving your 100 SoBucks later this week. As for Michael22, you’ll get an item from Gee-Cue with your SoBucks. Enjoy your prizes, guys, and have a great day at SocioTown! Till the next Image Contest. :D

Important announcement for the Discussion Area

Sunday, January 27th, 2013

Due to the increasing spam bot accounts in the Discussion Area, Chris has temporarily closed the registration in the forums. We’ll disable the current spam accounts, at the moment. In a week or so, we’ll open the registration again, but new accounts will be checked first before being approved for posting.

So if you know someone who can’t register in the Discussion Area, this is the answer. We apologize for this inconvenience, but it is necessary to do this for now. Please spread the word to avoid confusion from some players.

Thank you for understanding and have a nice day at SocioTown!

As some of you may have noticed, especially those who are active in the forums, we have a lot of spam threads lately. Although the moderators are trying their best to remove it, there are times when a couple of threads slip out (or they sneak in when the mods are asleep :cry:).

To aid in removing these conniving bots, we have a stickied thread in the General Discussion Forum that will inform you what to do. There are also tips there, for people who don’t know how to deal with spam threads. I hope you find it helpful! The link is posted below.

Click me! I’m not a spam link!
