After VMK closes, I find there is no reason to really stay on here. I rarely get PM's (except from Daze) so there is no need to stay on. Is anyone else doing this?

- besides the occasional PM check, I think there is no need to stay on?

taz, I do not think these kind of posts are allowed here. It might get deleted. If you want to keep in touch with anybody, it is best to send a PM. :)

it didnt strike me as a delete worthy post, but im not too experienced here. however, i would like to say that a good reason to stay on disboards is to keep up with the save vmk campaigns. even if it does close, it shouldn't mean that we give up! you never know ... they may decide to bring it back.

Personally, I was a member here before VMK. This is where I learned about VMK even.

Being honest, many will move on, but you must notice quite a few long timers when glancing at their join dates. The core group are park fans and were here before VMK, will be here after VMK.

I most likely wont visit the VMK part of the board very often, but as a photographer I love the photography section. :love:

Make sure you stick around for at least a week or so after VMK closes! There may be some interesting discussions!

Check back here every Survivor season. :thumbsup2

I've been neglecting that board for the past few months. I probably will be more active there if VMK closes.

taz, I was not suggesting you did anything wrong. ;) I have seen posts gets closed or deleted for less, such as saying "I might be leaving the Dis."

Nothing is wrong with your post, I just wanted to throw out there that you should PM any of your friends and let them know how to keep in touch with you should you leave. :)

I'm like A.
I was here before I even knew about VMK. I am somewhat active on the main Community board. So, I won't be leaving DIS. Although I probably won't be on it as much.

DIS is a huge forum. Check out some of the other areas before leaving. ;)

I been a member of Dis boards since 1998 (I know my join date is 2004, thats because I lost my original password and could never get it to work when I asked to send me the password to my email address) I still read Disneyland boards most and all the others. As for VMK board. Who knows. If its interesting enough Ill stay. After all its been my 3 year habit I dont know yet how Ill handle the withdrawal coming off it.

Of course what you do it completely up to you. I'll be around. I use Dis quite a bit for trip planning, photography tips, etc...

Just like in VMK, I find the more PMs I send...the more I receive.

I was on the Dis before VMK (that is how i found out about VMK) and I will be on after (that is if it truly ends!)

I check out the trip planning boards, reports, collectibles, theme park discussions etc.... I love the DIS.

I've signed onto DIS daily for years before VMK began, and so I plan on sticking around for years after VMK closes... It's my "home" :goodvibes

Love the Theme Parks board, the Hotel board, the Restaurants Board (FOOD!!!!!) and the Budget Board... Oh, and the Community Board... :goodvibes

I hope the VMK board stays open too!

There's still the prospect of the DIS Pirates Guild. That'll keep me around and posting regularly.

However, even if that falls through, I do have the DLR boards. :earsboy:

VMK is what brought me here 2 years ago. I have made many friends.

When that fateful day in May comes, I will party until VMK closes for the last time.

I will stick around and continue the fight, but I'm just worried that the first of many dominoes have been pushed in the closing of VMK for good.

DIS is my new home! Haha, I'm on DIS more often than I'm on Facebook! I will actually continue to visit the VMK board because these are the people I feel I know the most. Other than this section, there are many other sections I check often. These include:

- Disney Restaurants (the dining review with all the FOOD PORN!)
- Trip Reports (because even if I can't be there, I love reading about how everyone else enjoys Disney too!)
- Community Board (this is a recent thing, I like that it includes the most random threads!)

Of course, I also love visiting the photography board (not to post, but the see everyone else's submissions), the WDW Tips, and even the Cruise Line section (to read trip reports ... makes me want to go on a Disney cruise!). I totally love DIS. All parts of it!

For someone that lives so far away, and your not an adult where its in your own hands to book your own trip, its kind of hard to do anything on here.

Actually I think a lot of the DIS is accessible and fun even for those who can't plan their own trips. When I joined I had never scheduled my own trip, just barely considered myself an "adult", but I loved the rumors boards. Now I hang out mostly on the Trip Reports, The Community Board, and the Creative Board, but I love all of the options that the DIS provides. It's mostly not at all about being an adult and planning a trip, it's about all kinds of things Disney and not-so-Disney. Take a look around and see if you can't find something interesting. :surfweb:

Theres the teen board :thumbsup2

And btw I live pretty far away, I can understand the not being able to book your trips part tho :) For me I joined VMK becuase I am so far away from the park, the same reason I joined here. I lurked here for well over a year before I made an account.

Like others, I was a member here before I had even heard about VMK (though I heard about VMK from the actual WDW Resort itself haha). I've been lurking these boards since 2003 and joined in 2005 (right before VMK opened). I still visit the DIS daily, but I'm here reading about the parks. After VMK closes, that will not change. ;)

I'll be hanging around. Maybe Disney won't find away for us to keep in touch with our friends, but we have a great way to keep in touch here on the DIS, whether it be on this board, or on a thread on the community board, or through PM's.

CAJUNWDWFAN
04-24-2008, 08:04 AM
I will definitely be staying around on DisBoards. Like many others, I was DisBoard member before VMK. I'll guess I'll go back to posting mostly on the resorts, food, and rumors boards.

And besides this is the only way to get in touch with some of my VMK friends.

DIS is a vast community, absent VMK i will probably have more time to explore what else it offers. I found VMK through DIS, but only Found DIS while planing a fall trip in 2005. So timing is a bit of a toss up. Without VMK However I will probably do more reading here now then posting, since the only other posts I make are to the NASCAR thread.

I think most of the VMK players and members of forums around will have to decide what intrests them and do the still have reasons to visit.

Certainly friendships we have made are an overwealming reason to stay around for everyone...but even still as peoples interests change they tend to find less in common and wander off to new things. What this section of Dis becomes will certainly impact how much time people spend here. Dis has been a way of life for many but it centered around VMK mainly, thus only the future will tell.

I was a DISboard member before VMK, and joined VMK within the next month or so of joining this. I plan on definitely staying here so much information. The real reason I come to the DIS is to be among people who just know what Disney's about, ya know?

taz
04-24-2008, 03:40 PM
I think most, as well as I will stop by, but not be as eager as when VMK is around

04-24-2008, 06:38 PM
It was because of the DIS that I discoverd VMK. I will stay on here and the great part is the new friends I have made, I'm sure that we will stay in touch! Hopefully these boards will stay open for us to all get together to communicate. IF VMK closes, and Disney actually comes up with something decent for us to all play, we will have a great resource for us to all stay together

Raven_the_Bird
04-24-2008, 06:49 PM
I'm going to stay, my friend is on here and I don't think she ever checks her e-mail. I also post on the TB and sometimes read threads on the CB, I'll still read/post on this part of the DISboards if VMK does close.

I found out about vmk while scrolling down the main page of dis. I frequent the boards of disney rumors and theme park strategies. I do believe if we get the media behind us, we still can save vmk.

I too only found out about VMK because of the DIS. I joined here March 2005 to help me plan my June 2005 trip; had started reading here though in 2004.

I don't think I could ever leave the DIS; too good of a resource for WDW, IMO. And the friends here too are okay, I guess. ;)
