sumayyah-bmap-fishing

Quick and a skillful fisherman — that’s our BMAP winner this week! I hope you guys didn’t scare the fishies, though. :lol:

Congratulations, Sumayyah! Enjoy your prize (and fish). ;)

Next week’s BMAP will need the teamwork of three Socians. Will it be a tough round or an easy one? We’ll see!

Today’s BMAP: Fishing!

Sunday, May 26th, 2013

bring-me-a-picture

This week’s BMAP will be a bit easy. Bring me a picture of you reeling in a fish while shouting “Fishing is awesome!”

Send your entry to my email dawn@sociotown(dot)com with the subject BMAP: Fishing. Don’t forget to include your full SocioTown name so I know who you are. First player to send the right picture will win a gift from Trendiiz or Gee-Cue! For more info about this contest, click here. Screenshot tutorials here and here. Good luck!

Also, below is last week’s winning entry from Kobejuwan. His first picture missed a bit of detail, but second time’s a charm for him because he got it right with his second try. Congrats, Kobe! You’ll get your prize soon.

game-guide-recruitment-2

Chris has finally gave the thumbs up for the Game Guide Recruitment! After months of noticing that certain junior game guides are not as responsive as before, it’s finally time to let some people go and welcome new ones instead.

So if you think you have what it takes to be a SocioTown Game Guide, check out this forum post to join the recruitment. Remember to read Chris’ whole post carefully before you start the test.

After Sunday, May 26, we will stop receiving applications. Please apply before then. After some time, we will reach a decision on who to recruit and will announce it here in the blog and on Facebook.

Nervous? Unsure? Anxious? Distressed? Desperate? Don’t worry! Just calm down and channel the inner good Socian in you.

Good luck! :)

BMAP - Boxing Round

Sunday, May 19th, 2013

bring-me-a-pic-boxing-round

This week’s BMAP round will put your hunting skills to the test! Or you can persuade two friends. :lol:

Find two Socians boxing and act like a referee between the two by saying “No hitting below the belt”. Screenshot this and send it to my email at dawn@sociotown(dot)com, along with your complete SocioTown name. Remember to change the word dot to an actual dot, since some players had problems with this before. First one to send an image that follows the situation mentioned above will win a very cool gift!

Please note that this round is not about team work or giving away more than one prize. The participant should find players who are in a boxing match. You can always ask or persuade your friends to help and do boxing for you, but remember that I will only give the prize to the one who sends the image.

Good luck, B-MAPers!
