pinprophet 05-14-2008 10:26 PM

why do ya'll want to document vmk's existance so detailed?
so that we can go back and remember what an amazing game it was?
so we can miss it again?
so others can see and wish they had been able to play it?

really i dont understand why...

You nailed it when you said "so that we can go back and remember what an amazing game it was?".

pinprophet 05-14-2008 10:32 PM

i meant,
so we can go back and remember the amazing things we'll never be able to experiance ever again?

GoodPolarGirl 05-14-2008 10:36 PM

Thanks for the merging! This really helps! Since I can't take pics, I figured I would do my part by doing lasting/recharge times for Test Track Car magic. I hope the information I put in the magic thread was helpful!

There is nothing wrong with remembering things that are gone. It is actually a good thing to remember.

And now back on topic...

This is a great idea; I'd help but I'm sure that by the time I'll have the picture of something somebody else will have posted it!

Fantastic! Check any of the links in the first post. Each has details on exactly what is being looked for.

Just like anything pictures and further documentation adds to the overall memories. Think of vacations or holidays or other picture taking opportunities. You can't ever physically go back to that day, but your pictures and other memorabilia only enhance your memories. In this sense this wiki documentation is simply that - something to help enhance our memories.

Like I said above all contributions are more than welcome! Browse through the threads linked. They're kept as up to date as possible on the first posts. If you're still unsure check the responses to see what has been posted. Again if you have any questions you can PM or post to this thread.

Thanks everyone!

Shouldn't we make a list of all of the sounds in VMK? Like in the rooms, magics, etc.

My understanding is that right now the wiki doesn't support sound files. However if you have a way to list and collect sounds that would be great. I think there are a few other people who are trying to get the sounds too. One thing you could start with is to go through and make a list of everything that make a list of everything that makes a sound of some sort (especially items) so that they can be noted on the wiki even if they cannot add sound files yet. At this point the more information gathered the better. Then at some future point if there is a way to add the sound files to the wiki they'd already have them.

ccooldudecool 05-16-2008 12:42 AM

Would any part of the site need a writer? And also it won't let me register -_-

Ok, I'll try to work on it sometime this weekend if I have time, just in case. I'm working on some of the animations at the moment

You have to apply, there is a thread on it somewhere...

GoodPolarGirl 05-16-2008 01:20 AM

Thanks for the link on how to post pictures! I was able to make some magic for the wiki!

Adventurebry 05-16-2008 01:42 AM

Im going to upload all of my Remember VMK pictures into an album, but can I just PM the link to the Album instead each individual picture? Less work for everybody =).

UpInTheAir 05-17-2008 07:55 AM

Thank you everyone!

Here is hoping for a productive weekend!

Stemaboat_Tyler 05-17-2008 12:15 PM

I'm going to spend most of my time on VMK now working on this :)

GoodPolarGirl 05-18-2008 09:35 PM

Drat! Just when I was about to take pics VMK Disconnected all of us!

TopazR 05-19-2008 08:08 PM

Wow thanks so much to everyone who has helped out! Keep checking back here and keep checking all the other threads. The first post has been kept updated with the links to new and existing "HELP the Wiki" threads.

These past few days new items have come out right and left, so some may not be individually mentioned in the threads. If you have a new item please check UpInTheAir's threads for guidelines and see if you can add those pictures too.

Your help is really appreciated! :)

UpInTheAir 05-20-2008 09:04 AM

Due to unconventional release tactics from VMK...it's becoming harder and harder to keep track of item releases. New thread made specifically for new VMK items, please help us get as much info as possible before it's too late...If you could post any new item information and images here, that would be a great help. Thanks!

TopazR 05-21-2008 09:53 AM

OK everyone - last push. Check your inventories - watch for the new items that are coming at us left and right. It sure would be great to get all these new items fully and properly documented on our wiki. If you have questions as to what is needed check the guidelines in any of the posts linked in the first post of this thread. I know UpInTheAir's threads these last few weeks have resulted in a huge influx of images. All your help in getting these images is vastly appreciated.!!!

UpInTheAir 05-21-2008 08:53 PM

Last day to get pics, please please please do all you can. Also, we need people to make new disney.com accounts to get some of our missing clothing item inventory images.

Surely you have taken a picture of someone you like or care about and put it in a photo album. It's the same principle. :wave2:

If you browse around our Disneys Online Worlds wiki some, you'll see that these items are being added in over time. Please be patient, as you can imagine UpInTheAir was hit with literally thousands and thousands of images and other bits of information there at the end. She and her editors have been working long and hard to really get all the sections shaped up. Keep checking back, things really are changing daily! :)

GPDOT

Thanks GPDOT! I think we may just require some of your services. At the moment I've been busy trying to get pictures in and we are making some lists of items that we need to go hunting for. I'll be in touch ;)


As an update to everyone, slowly but surely these images are making their way onto the wiki. The VMKF response was so wonderful, we could not have done it without all of you! Keep checking the wiki as we add more pages, more images, and more information! Not only are we making sure the wiki has recent information, we're also making sure that old information gets added as well. Been digging around in the archives to bring you some blasts from the past! Let's keep these VMK Memories alive.

Pages are being added everyday:

For example....did you ever take the time to read the VMK In-Game Help Guide?

Want to relive Hula's last quest?

For some of us that were playing VMK in 2005 remember the Thanksgiving Quest? (and for those who weren't players then...something new!)

Do you remember which T-Shirt you wore to vote for the dragon in the 2005 Voting poll event?

Not sure where to find something on the wiki? I'm happy to point you in the right direction or let you know that what you're searching for is still in the process of being added. So relive those VMK memories and explore our wiki :)

Pisces 06-20-2008 08:32 AM

This is why I love the wiki, now as much as ever, there's so much useful information on anything you didn't know about or missed... *cough*ALL of the holidays*cough* Because I missed a bit even though I started playing during Beta...

Hello: I am wigglefritz a long time player of VMK. A friend, avatar, gpdot, made up a great program with pictures of VMK. You can go to all the lands, go on the Alice or Pan ride, Jungle cruise. It is great. made me cry. He is always adding to it. Maybe there are some pictures he will let you use. Enjoy!

I'm not sure if this was listed on the list. But when I was going through the VMK Cards, I noticed that the 50th Celebration Director's Chair didn't have a picture of the card. I found a picture for it:


Ugh. The link didn't work. I'll try to PM it to UpInTheAir

Miketic 08-03-2012 05:54 AM

I know I'm a few years late but am I still able to share some pictures and assist with this project?
