The Emo Chat has moved again. WyldRyde.org shut down, so the new chat is #emo at irc.geekshed.net. If you use the web based chat from EB, you will automatically go to the new chat.
‘Site News’ Posts on Emo the Blog
The official IRC channel of Emo Bucket (Accessible here: http://www.emobucket.com/chat/) has been moved from #eb to #emobucket on irc.wyldryde.org. If you don’t know anything about IRC, than this will not effect you.
We have give only our existing moderators admin status on the new chat room, so things should be calmer there.
If your new to the site and want to meet other users, join the chat and talk to other emo kids! You should also post an introduction on our forums if you are new!
Hi guys, it’s been awhile since I have been active on EB. I had been really busy with work and didn’t feel like getting involved with everything that EB demands. But, alas, I am back.
I’m going to try to post on the blog regularly, since the blog has never actually successfully taken off I’d really like to see something happen with it. If you are a good writer and really want to write for the blog, send me a message. My emobucket is flowmo. If you are over 18 there are opportunities to make money from the blog, and if you write great content it could be worth while.
Oh, hey, and the chat room is back. Were using a temporary chat room suggested by ZRC while I build something more unique for the site. I’d really like to see webcams and an easy to use interface for the next version of chat. If you go to the chat it is currently not moderated and we have little control over the content at the moment, so if you are new you might want to hang out in the chat for a few minutes to get an idea of how things are going and see if you want to talk Don’t take anything there personally, mmkay?
If you need any help with the site or have any questions, post a comment here or on my profile, or you could message me.
Hey everyone.. I was updating some stuff on the site yesterday and I accidentally made all profile comment quotes go onto my profile.
I’ve fixed everything, but if you were having problems with the quotes it was my fault. The cool thing is I got a lot of comments out of everyone for a day and it made me look way more popular, so uhm.. thanks for that.
I’m also going to try to be around here more, with my day job and all the drama going on in my life right now it’s hard to dedicate time for side projects and stuff. You know.. gotta pay the bills
You all remember The Face right? How he suddenly disappeared?Well, i have something to say. It is I, The Face. I decided to make a new account after i became too powerful. All these people at my feet and all i did was post my opinion. I decided i was too powerful and took refuge in a new account who would quickly rise through the ranks, Roylance. I know you don’t want to believe this, but i thought it has gone on too long. From tomorrow Im ditching my Roylance account and bringing back The Face. You probably will be confused as it is the same person posting, but do not fear, i’ll make the transition easy for you.I must say, i was surprised that i stayed as Roylance for so long. It became an addiction and i soon forgot about my old account. This Roylance character i had created was simply amazing, people respected him, feared him.It was something i could never do as The Face.I’m sorry i fooled you all for so long, but remember it was never personal.-Syd (Aka; The Face)
It’s now possible to completly re-design your profile on emo bucket using premade layouts and CSS.
The CSS Control panel gives you full access to customizing the look and feel of your profile, and you can now add flash and other images to your profiles About Me section and your “Here For” section.
In the near future there will also be a layout generator in the control panel making it extremely simple to edit your profile..
There’s a lot of new features on the way people…….
Some idiot named flowmo fawked the registration up and no one noticed until today.. So if you tried to register in the last 3 days and you couldn’t, it’s wasn’t because we didn’t want you joining..
Or was it?
After a year and a half hiatus, the popular punk band Alkaline Trio are in the recording studio making their new album Agony and Irony which is out on July 1st. The band said that that with this particular album they wanted to go ‘back to their roots’ with songs closer to their early work. Alkaline Trio also stated that the music will still be dark like 2005′s Crimson but in a different way. You can check out one of their new songs on their myspace Here
Alkaline Trio’s music was popularized by their fast tempos, additively catchy choruses, and dark themes. This included things like: Alcoholism, fire, and death. The band had been around since 1996 and if you haven’t checked them out I strongly suggest you do.
Another popular band recording are The All-American Rejects releasing their third album. They stated that they won’t try anything revolutionary and are just trying to ‘go with the flow’ with this album. AAR are trying for a more ‘real’ sound, and said they are going to make every song count. The album should be released sometime mid September if ‘all goes as planned.’
If you don’t know who the All-American Rejects are you should. The bands first album wasn’t a huge success but the song Swing Swing. The song garnered much popularity but many supposed the band was a one hit wonder. However with their second album came Dirty Little Secret. Move Along won two categories in the 2006 MTV music awards.
Finally the band Anberlin is also in the studio making an album. This will be a follow up to their 2007 Cities. Frontman Stephen Christan stated ‘Luckily, this album is gonna be the best work of our careers.’ A new contract with Universal will allow them to make the album exactly the way they want to. The album is currently unnamed but is set for August 1st.
Be sure to check in soon, I’ll be posting Alternative Magazines ’100 Bands you need to know in ’08′.

We have added a new forum for Serious Discussions. A lot of members were upset that there was not a forum dedicated to discussing serious and controversial issues, so we have now made it possible for you to discuss things such as current events, politics, religion, and other topics not appropriate for the general forums or the dedicated emo forum.
Were still looking at more forums in the near future so feel free to post up other suggestions here or on the forum.
The new layout has been launched on the bucket, but there have been some major delays of some of the new features. Were having a couple issues right now that require us to rewrite a majority of the back end code here, which is delaying the launch of things such as the profile layout editor.
One of the biggest problems we have had is that the bucket is growing so quickly, the code originally used is becoming outdated and the server/backend code just couldn’t handle the current increase in users. Were finishing up and everything seems to be running MUCH faster.
We also have an issue with certain pictures from a section of the gallery that are not displaying. Were working hard on fixing this and the occasional upload errors.
Were still here working hard, even though we might not be active in the community
