    In this thread, Luv2Roam suggested that Disney might be sounding out the possibility of making people pay to play VMK.

    Would you?

    (This is my first attempt at a poll, so bear with me.)

    I think an adult only bit would be a good idea. However, I wouldn't even pay for that unless they added a lot more games etc. It's nice to chat to disers but with the limited dictionary (and that fact that its quicker on here ;) (I often get told off by the system for typing too fast when in VMK!)) talking isn't enough to sustain my interest.

    Thankfully at the moment I am still only level 1 on pirates so gotta work on that and still not won the magic fireworks pin so gotta work on that. So they keep me going back for more at present :)

    For what is available now, and even with the addition of 2 more lands, I would not pay either.

    However, if they had an adult-only (verified, perhaps by credit card) and dictionary-free zone, I would pay a little ($5/month), especially if it could become a venue for Dis chats / trip planning / news, or if they had invited "speakers" (typers?).

    For that, though they'd have to increase room capacity beyond 15-19 as currently. They'd also need to decrease the "typing too fast" time out.

    Hmm, I am not sure about trip planning etc as I think the boards are good for that (or chat rooms if you can find decent ones). But invited speakers would be neat and I would, as I said, pay a little (I agree around $5 a month) if they added more games and interactivity.

    The graphics are *great* on VMK, its a shame the interactivity isn't there to match.

    Great job on your first poll ;)

    I said I would not pay at all. It just isn't an option for me. Ok, maybe the adults only section. But even $5 a month is $60 a yr! I just can't get over that!

    Hmmm you are right, it is quite a bit. I still think I would pay it with more stuff added and an adult only bit with no dictionary would be great (although I would still like it to be filtered and moderated somewhat).

    At the moment Im a 23yr old with no dependants, so I could let myself spend around $5 a month. Also my DFi spends money on online games so at least we'd be equal ;)

    But yeah, I can understand people not wanting to pay. I think Disney would lose a lot of the subscriber base if they moved to a pay-for-play system. There should be different options available :)

    I picked other though because I think I would pay but only $1 a month for an Adult version of the game.

    My reason for not paying is we have dial up and I am not paying for something that does not work as well on dial up as it does on highspeed.

    That said this ggame is making me consider getting a highspeed connection so I will be paying to play in the long run just not to Disney.


    I can not beleive they are even considering this being that they are getting revenue from product sales etc that people might not have bought while at the parks just to get codes.

    I know that the next time we go I will be buying things like ears( we already have)again to get the code for the game. And at least one of everything else that has a code associated with it.

    I would not pay anything for VMK as it is now, but I would consider paying up to $10 a month for more games and fewer vocab-restrictions. What does Disney charge for ToonTown these days?

    I also have a DH who plays online games such as World of Warcraft, so like the poster above, this would kind of even us up a bit!

    LOL, it is WoW that my DFi plays. Although I think he has cancelled his subscription for a bit. But he has also been known to have subscriptions to Everquest, Meridian 59 (I think thats what it was called), Eve and something to do with Star Wars (*not* all at the same time I must stress).

    We can be game widows together ;)

    sorry but this is WAY off topic:
    I looked but could not find what DD, DFi, etc., mean. Is there a shorthand definitions somewhere?

    Darling daughter, darling fiance(e). Although I have seen people guess divorced, and personally I always read deranged.

    Here's a more complete list for lots of Disney abbreviations you'll see on the boards. It took me forever to figure out what MNSSHP and MVMCP were.

    for Spinmarty...

    DD mean either downtown Disney or Disney/Dearly daughter

    ok on the topic i would only pay if they have a one time bases like 60 for the game. eventhough it is an online game. I think it is stupid to pay for monthly. What happen if you pay for a month and only play it for a day of the month, because of other activities that go on. I think, also, that alot of people play this game is that they can't afford other game which it make it unique to all the other games

    Nope...once they start charging for it, I'm outta there.

    I wouldn't pay for DD to play either. It's fine right now, but once school starts I don't think she'll have much time for it either.

    Now that would be an interesting idea... VMK charges a monthly fee, but that's redeemable as Disney dollars... Not to give anyone at Disney ideas, but if I were a marketing person working for the mouse...

    Never! I love VMK being nearly free! I mean, yeah it costs if you want to go to parks and do quests but other than that it is compelety free.
