Since we have had quite a few people from the Dis and VMK join this site, this is the place to discuss all things SocioTown.com related. But I want to make something clear about the site for all that read this thread. The chat is completely open. You can say anything you want in game except for vulgur curse words. It is basically an instant messenger built in a 3 dimensional world with an aspect of collecting items, trading, building rooms and dressing you avatar. It is strictly a 13+ site any younger and you are not permitted to join. There is a report button and also an ignore button that can be used report any trouble or to create bliss if someone acting out in rude ways. It is a pay to play site to take advantage of everything the game offers something on the order of Habbo Hotel. You can still join, chat, hang out with friends, make new friends and so on, but to buy goods you need to pay with real cash or be gifted by someone. There is also the ability to trade a subscriber the bugs you catch which they can in turn sell for in game credits and buy you stuff. Should you decide to Pay to Play there is a code you can enter that will allow you to get $4 dollars off your first month in game. It is VMKREFUGEE. Use this code in the right place on the subscription page and it will cut the cost in about half for a month. The game guide can be found here. A couple good tips for any one that creates an avatar there: To replace the ??? over peoples heads, get them to say their name and they will be replaced with thier character title. You have them over your head to as far as they can see if you say your name they will see your characters title as well. Choose your avatar's look and hair wisely as well as your clothes. At this point you can't change clothes without spending some money or being gifted by someone that has and I am not sure you will ever be able to change your facial appearance. So make sure you look the way you want. If you click on the link from the site to start the game it pops up a browser window that is maximized, you can only minimalize it into the task bar, but if you create a shortcut to the client you can use a normal browser window. So do this, copy and paste this link into a normal browser window, or just click on it. http://west1.sociotown.com/client/ Now your at the site in a normal browser. Create a favorite. Now you can adjust the window to what ever size suits you. This is an example of an avatar, our own BrairRosie the SocioTown next Top Model: Also if your trying to log in the server maintenence is from 3-5 am Pacific Time, so dont dispair if your trying to get in at that time.
