I knew VMK would close eventally, but I thought it would probably like close like next year, or around then.

I had no idea it was just a promotion. I still feel a bit shocked.

they keep throwing the workd *promotion* around, but come on now.. its been around 3 years.. if you ask me, *promotion* is their way out of this.. i think yavn (or whoever it is) got mad at all the quest complaints and that did it..

I think that's quite possible. Although I think it's also possible that Disney has already been putting pressure on VMK to close and that the complaints about the quest may have just made it a bit sooner rather than a bit later.

I'm surprised it lasted THIS long...makes sense, the last quest was titled the quest to end all quests. this is the longest game i've ever played on line (played right after beta). it's been a good run and i'm ready to move on, but i WILL miss the buds i've made along the way and of course fireworks i'm just glad they announced it like they did--can you imagine if they just pulled the plug one day out of the blue, and when you tried logging on you got a message that said "sorry folks but vmk has ended!"?

I didn't know it would close in 6 weeks time. I thought it would last at least another year.

I am not suprised at the closing of VMK! i think the Blackheart Quest was the Straw that broke the Camel's Back.

Although it does make me very sad, and had my little sister in tears. VMK .. why bother selling new stuff and having events if all your going to do is close up. You won't be seeing me at any of these so called "EVENTS". The only reason i will even stay on VMK for the next month and a half is to hang out with the many friends i have made. I hope the one's that are on VMKF will stay here to keep in contact.

So Long VMK!

Actually, I predict VMK will crash and burn that last day. They'll just turn it off early. So be on-line the day before too...

I knew it would close 1 day. But I didn't think it would close this soon! I thought.. maybe 2010. But not 2008..

When they pulled the quests out of the parks last year I though VMK was nearing its end. I didn't believe it when Yavn told us not worry - the closing of the quests just seemed like a huge red flag to me.

But then, VMK did some things that made me change my mind, and think "hey, VMK might be sticking around after all". They came out with all the wonderful Gingerbread items at Christmas time and hosted "the first *annual* Gingerbread contest" (leads you to believe there will be more in the future) they added the Magic Shop, they released the first take of the Card Trading Game, added the Penny Arcade, started releasing real versions of the VMK pins (tiki and pirate), hired new staff, had new things in the newsletter (Esmeralda's Trivia, Pirate Vinnie, etc.) and created Bella's specials in the Emporium.

So, while I knew VMK wouldn't be around forever, I certainly wasn't expecting it to go away so soon. I thought they were breathing new air into the game recently, trying new things (the big quest), and going forward with their commitment to the game.
