It’s been a long time since there was an Emo Bucket contest, but we have 2 upcoming contests for you. The first contest is the 2008 Valentines Day Contest. You can win a $25 iTunes card and an Emo Anti-Valentines Day CD, or a $15 iTunes card.
All you need to do to enter is submit a poem, valentines day card, or any original way to tell someone that you lover them in an emo way
The CD were giving away, the Emo Anti-Valentines Day CD, is from Vitamin Records and has fourteen string quartet tributes to some of the most popular mainstream emo bands including: Taking Back Sunday, Dashboard Confessional, Panic! at the Disco, and Fall out Boy.
Or as they say:
Flowers die. Candy makes you fat. This year save some money by saying no the greeting card companies’ conspiracy. If you’re one of the millions of people who don’t have a date for the 14th, Vitamin Records has your back! This compilation features fourteen hardcore, string quartet tributes to some of emo’s most legendary artists. Love blows! This doesn’t!
If you like the acoustic versions of songs, you need to try listening to the instrumental versions. I’ve listened to a few songs by the String Quartet and their all pretty good and true to the original track. I honestly didn’t think this CD was going to be all that great when I first heard about it, but I have a copy I’ve been listening to all day. It’s really chill, and is starting to grow more on me :-O
A new bucket is being design and will be released soon, a long with a profile editor allowing you to totally customize your profile
There’s going to be a lot of cool new features at the bucket in the coming months, so stay tuned.
That’s about all I can say right now, but just know that the emobucket is not going to be anywhere near the same. There will still be pictures, galleries, forums, and profiles, but almost everything is going to be changing.
Sorry guys, a lot has been going on lately on the backend of the bucket, and not a whole lot on the front end. There are some small issues were working on fixing before we finish some of the front end stuff
The profile editor and top friends are coming soon too, so don’t think I forgot about your profiles.
Originally, most of the text such as description of “What emo means” were sent in to me, but I really don’t like the definitions and such on the emo bucket as they are not true to emo. If anyone wants to send in “the perfect definition of emo”, send it on over to firstname.lastname@example.org
Emo Bucket profiles as of now look horrible and are rather useless with the exception of comments. We have decided to make profiles more useful and fun by rebuilding them from scratch.
Some of the things you can expect in the near future:
Profiles similar to most pre-existing social network sites
Profile editor allowing you to change the appearance of your profile. In addition to the profile editor, you will also be able to use custom CSS like you can with myspace.
New user control panel broken up into easier to use sections, and many many new features
About me sections and many other new areas of your profile.
Ability to set your profile as private, where only logged in users can view your profile. In the distant future, only your friends will be able to view your profile if you choose.
We want to address most of the things that people have suggested to us over the last couple of months, if you have any other suggestions, send me a message or email email@example.com
What not to expect with the new profiles:
Search for users by age or location
These are the only feature our users have requested that we are not going to implement any time in the near or distant future. Due to the fact that most of our users are between the ages of 14-18, we don’t want to encourage the sharing of any personal information. We want to keep the emo bucket safe and legal, and the easiest way to avoid opening the bucket up to the wrong crowd is to keep the Bucket as anonymous as possible while still keeping it the biggest and best emo website ever.
