Amazing conference call with the creators of the upcoming KK website and on-line game yesterday. VERY creative team with lots of terrific ideas. It's all still in the early phases, so no secrets to reveal, but what they are aiming for sounds fantastic. Should know much more by the end of the month.

There also seems room to make the site itself filled with interesting treats. If we recover the video of Wayne and Finn on video chat, for instance, we can post it there. This is getting good!

Maybe he's resurrecting (spelling?) VMK!? He did always talk about it in his books... Probably not

well he did have good timing on oth KK books....

woot! :D

he also posted a fake blog entry saying vmk woud be reopening around the timing of kk2 (it was actually his child I think)

It may have just been a mistake, but the timing was not good

He got the rumor (which we all know turned out to be false) from his connections at Disney.

I've just heard that VMK is to remain open until Halloween.

That message was deleted and replaced by the following message from Ridley at 8:56 PM the same day:
VMK rumors
There are rumors circulating about VMK possibly being extended (for long time users) for a few months longer. I can't confirm anything at this time, but keep your fingers crossed.

The above post was deleted as well, but screen caps of the both blog posts can be found at http://www.vmkforums.com/forums/showpost.php?p=2019521&postcount=75.

On Sunday, May 25, 2008 at 4:55 PM Ridley posted:
False VMK
I'm now told by my "insider" that indeed it may be only a rumor (about VMK). Sad, because my "source" of the rumor was another top insider. But alas, I'm afraid VMK is gone. I'm disappointed too....

This post was deleted as well, but a screen cap can be found at http://www.vmkforums.com/forums/showpost.php?p=2021392&postcount=167.

FYI, I'm the person who posted the screen caps in the links above, so I can vouch for their veracity - I grabbed them on the days of those posts, and they were not photo-shopped.

Sounds interesting. Can't wait to see.

11-22-2009, 12:29 PM
I have faith in Ridley Pearson, *** he was a VMK fan too, so he understands. I hope it's as much like VMK as possible.

Beta testing for the new KK game is an interesting idea... if anything like that comes up, I'll be sure to notify you.
