Exclamation Are there any of you left?

I know VMK closed down a year and a bit ago, but i'm sure nobody has fully forgotten about it. I'm curious to hear your views about it closing down a year later and whether it has afftected you or your entertainment.

My view.
Where do I start?
I joined VMK, when I was nine. I felt like the happiest kid alive, honestly. I used to spend hours on it, with real life friends and friends I had made online. I used to rush home from school, log straight on and save up for those christmas items or halloween costumes. I had something to focus on I guess. Then it closed down when I was twelve years old, yeah it shocked me but after a year I have manged to move on abit. I haven't found another site like it and I guess it would of been nice if I could of stayed in touch with all those friends I made but I missed the deadline. The site was brilliant, but if it was still here the impact it would have on me wouldn't be as deep. I'm thirteen now and there are bigger things happening. But I haven't forgotten about the buzz I got from talking to people from around the globe or the fact that I was in a virtual fairy tale. Disney has always been a passion some way or another but i'm not one of those kids who's families are swimming in money and can just spend money on a holiday. I'm one who finally felt at home with all those kids on there. I felt like I didn't need to go to disney land to experience it? I know now i'm more grown up so I see the consquences, but it would be nice if young children like I was, who had problems, could experience something good in life. But it's gone now.


BTW, i'm not a goth any more. Nor am I nine. :L

I think alot of people do?
I'm only saying; it wouldn't make the same impact on me now, as it would of when I was nine.
I'm just, shocked that a site with so much progress, so much passion and so many members just close down like that and people still be wanting it back a year later?
I really want to go on it now, loved seeing those little avaters.

I still miss VMK. I have managed to remain in contact with about half of my friends from there, but even so, it is rare that we chat as much as we used to. I've been from game to game and nothing seems to work out. In the past year, I had found 2 games that I was settling into but ended up leaving both because of safety issues. MMOGs are still my favorite form of entertainment, but I definately view games and the people that I meet in them differently.

I remain a fan of Disney, but refuse to play anymore Disney games. I have returned to the Disney parks once since VMK closed, and that is less frequent than I used to go. The magic and excitement during that trip wasn't the same as it was before. Plus, I definately don't purchase as many Disney movies or games as I used to.

Now that we know where your username came from, you've got a dirty mind, young lady!
Hiding things from the TF? Very risky

Im having a nostalgic night I suppose and decided to pop onto the DIS and take a look around. I do miss VMK. We had alot of fun and made alot of online friends. I still play online games, but VMK will always be the game that makes me smile when I remember it. For those interested, SorcMickey and I are still together after all of these years, and still madly in love :-) I am still friends with Yavn, and we talk every few months. I've been to Disney a handful of times since VMK closed and all of those times with SorcMickey. I may not be as bitter as some at the closing of VMK. I had already left the game and I understood why it was closing but that doesnt mean that I dont wish it were still there to pop onto and stand on main street and look for hagen hiding behind the popcorn cart or trying to get in the last word before closing! I hope this post finds you all well and I wish you the best in all you do.

Bella

I miss it dearly.

I miss all my friends, as I don't have any contact with really any of them once the game shut down.

I miss all the DIS members and the VMK forum.
