Most of you are willing to pay to play There is many reasons im not


ONE and most important thats what disney wants and what i have more than anything is giveing in to people or companys

Two its just a freking game! telll your friends how to contact you on the last day and probelm solved.

Three most games charge 10 to 15 a month on avrage so if i WAS willing to spend my hard earned money on a game it be something WAY beter l ike loto or wow. where you can talk freely and dont have to worry about lame staff
baning you for useless reasons

Four why would i spend money on that when there is things i NEED im in 9th grade i have stuff to pay for like lunch and school suplies and school events wher ei can hang otu with REAL people

lol the point wasn't to attack you, if you don't want to pay to play, then let it be, and I agree with you somewhat.

Um... maybe it was because you just flamed everyone who said that they wanted to pay to play in your first post?

1. If it's just a game, heck why not tell your friends how to contact you right now? What's a banned to you right now if it's just a game.

2. I'm in 9th grade too, I pay for my lunch, school supplies and school events and I would be willing to pay all the money I have just to keep talking to all the friends i've met over the two years i've been playing VMK. By the way, REAL people are playing VMK right NOW, just because it's virtual doesn't mean we are REAL.

Nobody is forcing you to play VMK, obisouly you don't care about it. What you are doing is saying the people who would pay for it (which are people who care about the game) are dumbo. So like Aengus said, if you feel like that quit now.

I see your point with the sibling part, but the second part I still don't quite understand. You don't consider the people you met on VMK your friends? Just because you can't hear their voice doesn't mean they aren't real, you see what they say on VMK.

I think a lot of DISers connect in the game and here on the boards. I understand what you say about a connection to pixels, but there are many of us who have gotten past the pixels part. Take a look at the community board where people can talk about their personal problems or issues (amongst other things, of course). You'll get a good sense of how real everyone really is. :hug:

Well because of VMK I have met the real people. The most wonderful and caring people I know.

These not real people to you.

Sent hats to Ink when he was fighting cancer.

Sign Dlandchicks VMK community post. The organized a special bear that travels all over the place to the homes of other VMKer's and then met to give her this bear.

When I lost the ability to walk it was my friends that I met on VMK that sent cards while I was in hospital. Who have helped me adjust to life. VMK lets think of what I can do not what I have lost.

When one of my VMK friends daugher was in hospital for a month many of us collected items for her and gave special gifts.

So you see it is more than just a game to many. For you it might be as it is for a few.

But to others it is a small community of caring people.

Before VMK I never had disney friends in the States now I have and over in England and Canada.

We send christmas cards and care packages for people that are hurting.

So it is more than a game to me.

Yes the internet can be a means for the real thing.:hug:

it is not too late to connect to us pixels :)

There are quite a few people that play VMK that have actually met.

People online are real. I am a real person on the other end of your computer.
I have real feelings. I have a real life. I have a real job that pays real money.

I've met in person quite a few people that I met online. In fact, I almost married a man I met online.

Everyone on the internet is a real person.

As I said, quite a few people here have met each other. And it's because of VMK. Two people that lived clear across the country from each other met and got married. All because of VMK and the DIS.

:grouphug: I think you guys are being much too harsh on her. She was just stating her opinion, a valid one that MANY of you have stated in the past when it didn't look like the only alternative (not that it is one currently, but you kwim). This is a kid who probably doesn't have Disney loving parents willing to pay for a computer game. I know I told my dd no to Club Penguin bc it cost to play and there are free options elsewhere. If it's a yearly fee that isn't too high, it could be a good request as a birthday gift for younger kids though. Much like Webkinz is right now.

I know when I'm not playing Car, I have no connection to "real ppl". It's bc I know most of my friends list from DIS, have pm you, IM you, or read about your REAL lives that I am connected while playing Caribbean_Gal. And I am most fortunate to have been able to meet a bunch of those West Coasters! A 9th grader really doesn't have that to look forward to. Even if her family goes to WDW or DLR, she's at their mercy for where and when to do things.

Just be nice please and remember there's a real person on the other end of the DIS board computer as well.

Oh well, im bound to know that VMK wasn't going to stay open forever anyway. I mean, I would be glad for it to stay open and all.. But I seriously was an addict and I was never doing anything else with my life. So i'm moving on.... to ToonTown! ;)

I believe that teddiesgirl was referring to OutofMyMind and myself (Coriander) as the couple who lived across the country from eachother, met in VMK and got married. Woot, yes we did!

If it were not for VMK this would never have happened. But we are adults, met in Beta testing when rules were a bit more lax.

We are very invested in VMK and are so very sad that it may close (keeping up the fight) We have met a lot of "real people" here both in the game and in "real life" that we will always try to keep in close touch with.

Those who I feel the worst for are the kids who have formed close friends here, when it was not possible for them in "real life" They are the ones being hurt.

I do find it somewhat good for you to realize that computer games are not "real" but VMK is not your casual computer game. It has morphed into a real community.

I am also sad for the staff who were apparently as blindsided as we were by the announcement. They are wandering around not knowing what will happen to their jobs next. Too sad.

Of course you are entitled to your opinions, and you seem to have a healthy feeling that computer games are not "real." Most are not. VMK is just a bit different.

I wish you the best, and hope that you can find somewhere to "connect" with both your family and real life friends. :hug: pixiedust:

I do believe in the statement you said about how VMK morphed into a community from a game.

But, I do feel bad for the Staff more, VMK_ and HOST_ because they are going to be jobless. :sad1:

I'm guessing most of them had VMK has a part time job.
