    It's a bummer, but it never was to be a permeant thing. I'm surprised it stayed up as long as it did.

    VMK was created and launched as part of a promotion to celebrate Disneyland's 50th Anniversary. In part due to VMK's success, the game/promotion was extended, however the time has come to end the promotion. For more information, read Yavn Speaks or our FAQ.

    I just wish they would keep it running and at least give us the option of paying to play it or something.
    Love, Kerri

    Later VMK... Although they say they weren't planning on lasting forever they didn't show any sign of stopping with their new items, big quest, new rooms and magic, and the Trading Card Game

    I'll have to go in and spend all my "loot' just so I can say at least it had fun using it.

    Wow... that really just kinda stinks. I even paid real money for some rares off eBay. Heck I know of people who paid close to $100 real money for a Stitch hat. The irony is that if they kept it going and just made it a pay-to-play game I think it'd do well. Heck I'd pay to play it if they changed it a bit and lost some of the restrictions. Wow I'm all bummed out now.

    ugh, I've spent over 3 years playing that game... I love it.

    What's with their latest poll asking what we want more of? My gosh this makes me so incredibly sad.

    I was hoping to use VMK as just a fun getaway if I end up going to work at Disney...

    This really bums me out.

    I think if I am translating properly, he is saying that they are announcing that they are closing so that you don't try to log in and think you are banned. They will have the site open for a couple weeks after they officially close just so people can see that they are closed.

    (I think that's what he was getting at.)

    Ahhh right yeah the site itself (vmk.com) will be up for a few days to let folks know that it's down. My guess is they'd take the "play now" button down too though which should be a dead give away that it's not because you're banned.

    Yeah, I understand but you do know that there are some people on VMK that are not very smart...

    Like yesterday when I was starting my quest... so many people don't want to do any work, they just want you to give them prizes... It's frustrating.
