Tired of hearing these over and over again?
"Hey you look cute you taken"
"Hey wanna go out"
"yo cute stuff you taken with me now"

If you answered yes then continue reading. If you answered no go read something else to kill time during the BSOD which would be possibly the only reason your reading this.

Here's the all new nano patent anti-taken plan.

First what you do is make a charcter that says your vmk title and then if you're a guy his girl or if you're a girl his guy.

Ex. If my vmk title was Nanoer the person would be Nanoersgirl

Then what you do is have the person stalk you around on vmk. So whenever anyone asks you that person is right there so they stop in their tracks. It might take a while for it to be establised in VMK "society" but hey it might now.

Yes you can say it I'm a genius... Actually you can say I have too much time on my hands and no life....

Nano, I have to say that is the smartest way to ward off those annoying people who want to do taken!

I have done it before, with my mom's character. I was trying to talk to a friend on Main Street, but people wouldn't stop asking..

So I brought my mom's character in and everyone stopped annoying me. I was able to tell the friend that it was my character in the first place.

Seems like managing two characters around vmk would be alot harder than a simple click of the ignore button. :confused3

what can i say.. it entertains me and ignore does not really stop people from surrounding you so you can't move

I think there is a way to prevent this chaotic gesture of being coupled in vmk, but I don't think this is it. The answer, as I believe it to be, is in the hands of the VMK workers themselves. I think the only solution to ultimately reducing the number of people asking you is by having the workers (whoever has that control) crack down on this. That, however, could be nearly impossible as "Taken" has escalated to a vast craziness! The best bet, I think, is using that ignore button. ;)

Hmm it entertains you huh, so does that mean you like getting asked if your taken.. ROFL :lmao:

See I think it is stupid to just go up to someone and ask if they are taken, like who does that in real? but I think if you are friends first and more develops then taken is fine, like the vmk staff title it "special friends" :rotfl: I heart having a special friend, he's rad :)

Wow nanoer, what a "creative" idea... But sometimes I think some kids taken TOO far... I've tried your idea but.... The girl reported my mule, mule goes bye, and torture for the next.... minute!!!

Whee.... I have to admit, it's fun... but sometimes I'm hanging out with my friends and the "takenites" butt in and start asking every boy/girl if they're taken... We play lots of jokes (not mean!) and say we're all taken by each other and they say an equivalant of eww... and leave. Some staff dislike taken... But... I won't go into details.

Jasonpwns, explain why Nanoer needs to be "uglier"... I put a mirror in front of the laptop and BOOM, it go to millions of pieces...

I just tell people that I'm taken by boogies, and that grosses them out, and they leave me alone.

A really simply way to do this without having to go through the trouble of creating an additional character is to put "against taken" or something similar in your sig. Both my husband and I have done this and we've never been bothered. Or if people are surrounding you, leave the room. If you're trying to do a quest, use the advanced mode and enter rooms that have little to no people in them. There are plenty of really simple ways to get around having to deal with it.

I usually just tell them I'm taken by all my hats and magic. >8D They get scared and go away. But simply being an odd color usually helps a ton.

Very true, I don't think taken is wrong.. but after 100 times in being asked if you are taken by the same person is just plain stupid if you ask me. This one dude came up and said... "I like you, but can you change your clothes to match that person over there?" i Off i went, lol

Now that I have a "car", guys keep trade window asking if I'm taken. What happened to walking up to the person and just typing it in? I don't have much stuff to trade (being new) so is it rude to just cancel a trade window without responding that I don't want to trade first? I started telling them "I have tree kids and could be your mummy". Apparently one thought I used vmk day care b/c he said ok, he would follow me around then. :sad2: I beamed myself out of there. It's extra rude when they don't even bother to say hi or what kind of games do you like to play (has never happened). How do they know they want you hanging out in their rooms? It's all about the aquisition. If it keeps up I think I'll add "taken for life" in my post. I'm sure 14 yr olds won't get it though, but they'll know not to ask.

I have a partner in real life so I just tell people that "I'm taken in real and I want to respect that." for the most part...it works. heck, even if I didn't have a partner I'd still say that I did. they don't know me! :rotfl:

LOL! She is right - One time I looked ugly and I walked around Town Square and Main Street and people dont ask me anymore! Of course I try to be a little funny and ask people if they are taken, but they run away! LOL. And nano, I do like your solution ;). :thumbsup2

LOL Yea, me and my friends all get together and dress our ugliest. Then we go to a boys meet girls room and ask ppl if they are taken, they turn us down. So then we put our normal clothes on and you cant move because there is a mob of people wanting to be with you!

I watched my 7 year old nephew for the weekend and intorduced him to VMK. I have two computers so I figured we could make a character for him and I could monitor closely. He wanted to see Main Street so we were walking around there. Within 30 seconds, the girls were all over him! I thought the ladies had it bad when it came to taken, the boys get swarmed! We solved that by making him green with a really big face. No more "taken" after that! The funniest part was that these girls have no clue that they are falling all over a first grader! :crazy:

How can I disagree with you? :)
I stand by my opinion that there is nothing wrong with being taken in a virtual world, its the real that can cause issues. In all my time playing vmk I have never just walked up to a girl and begged to be taken. Like Sassy says here, who does that in real, then omg why play that game on vmk? And making another character is not the answer....nor is reporting everyone that approaches you spewing "are you taken" from their lips. OMG just leave the room, ignore, or boot them. I have seen boys and girls both say "lets go make out"....yea like that can happen in that virtual world. Good grief! Having a special friend can be fun if you respect vmk values...... :love:

Sassy, im with you!And staff only approved of "Levels One-Three"
1.:Talking
2.:Hugging
3.:Saying "I <3 You"

other levels, they dont approve of...And i think they only allow the "i love you" part in case you know them in real life...which i know amny people who do.

my solution to taken is to keep my face on the glasses face. I've only been asked if I was taken twice and I've been on since the beginning of April. I guess the geek look isn't as in as everyone says. hehe

As much as I dislike "taken" and think it's silly...I'm kind of sad that my little character hasn't been asked if she's taken or not more often. I think my character is cute. Heh.

There was only one time that I recall, and it was this guy who just wanted my baseball hat and called me ugly when I said no. Then we proceeded to dance around him. Good times.

heck yeah! it's fun to enter a room and dance around a person :rotfl2: too bad you can't do that irl in LA lol i wonder if you could anywhere else.. that'd be fun.. leave house, see person on street, go to person on street, start to dance, dance in a circle around the person, get jumped :rotfl2: except in the place you could do it you'd only get a weird look or less lol

i'd go for the thing with the mule, but then i'd have to hook up my laptop, etc.................. it's easier just to say practically nothing when you enter a room. also try to keep your signature on only trade wishes bc if you talk about yourself, ppl might become interested with you. like i used to say i'm nice and i dance, but i was asked if i was taken a lot. now i only talk about things i wish i had and things i am trading. have only been asked if i was taken twice since then even though i'm a really cute looking girl!

06-27-2006, 02:49 PM
It's kind of sad if you think about it.. I bet the only reason vmk staff hasn't blocked the word "taken" is because not as much people would want to play VMK. :sad2:
