April is Tomorrowland Quests Month! - Newsletter

Updated 24 April 2014

Hey everyone, Jake here! Was Haley here recently? I must have missed her again. I was way too busy playing the Earth Day Quest, that was too fun! I heard more quests will be available real soon, so I should keep an eye out to see what’s coming up.

Anyway, I need to run now. My Space Mountain Ride still needs lots of work done and I need to get credits! Have you built a ride yet? It’s awesome! See you around!

Go for Launch!

3…2…1…Blast your guests off into space with the new Space Mountain Ride Pieces! Available in the shopping catalog now, you can start building your own ride and create the best roller coaster ever made!

Enter the Game Grid…

Greetings Programs! Join the world of Space Paranoids and create your very own guest room inside the arcade game. Watch out for Recognizers! You can win this Tron Guest Room for the rest of the month in one of our HOST Events!

Dive! Drive! Fly!

Space… Land… and Sea… which Tomorrowland Quests will you be able to complete? Coming soon this month, you’ll be able to complete the quests for the Deep Sea Diving Magic Pin, Inner-Space Suit Magic Pin, and earn your Autopia Drivers’ License and drive around your very own car with the Autopia Racing Magic Pin! Then you’ll be able to dive into the sea, race around Autopia, or fly into Inner-Space!

Fantasyland Ride Madness!

A new set of Fantasyland Ride pins are now ready to be pulled out of the Sword in The Stone! You can earn these awesome new Mickey & Friends Pins by simply riding the Fantasyland Courtyard rides and trying to lift the sword. Have a nice ride and good luck!

Push’s Trash Trivia!

Test Your Knowledge of Disney Trivia!

This Week’s Question: What are the names of the 2 Space Mountain tracks?

Know the answer?

Send your answer to trivia@myvmk.com. Be sure to provide your MyVMK username in the email with the answer. From the correct answers submitted, we randomly select three players as the winners and send them a Push Trivia Pin! You have until Thursday, May 1st, to send your answers in.

Here’s the answer to last weeks Push Trivia:

In the movie Tron, what does MCP stand for?

Answer: Master Control Program.

Did you know:  The film Tron was disqualified from receiving an Academy Award nomination for special effects, because the Academy felt at the time that using computers was “cheating”.

Disneyland guests can play “Space Paranoids” in a Tomorrowland souvenir store, in the back near the Space Mountain exit. The game currently sits next to a “Tron” arcade game, and near several “Fix-It Felix Jr.” arcade games. “FLN” holds all of the high scores. Congratulations to the 3 lucky (and randomly picked) players that sent in the correct answer for last week’s question!

Winners:

RadicalSplashGirl
Eros
Roxas

March was full of amazing guest room creations, and to everyone who entered, GREAT JOB! Here is March’s Best Guest Room winner…

Deep in the jungle lays a Lost temple, One like no other - Inferno’s Indiana Jones Lost Temple! Come help Indiana Jones himself explore this dark place & find the lost Crystal Skull! But beware, it is protected by a curse and there are traps hidden everywhere! Congratulations Inferno!

MyVMK Staff Profiles

Ever wanted to know more about your favorite staff member? Now you can! Every so often we will be interviewing a different member of the MyVMK Staff. Our fourth staff interview will be with someone who is a huge movie fan!

Mod name: HOST_Celluloid

What’s your favorite item?
Well, I could say my lovely crate wife Sasha, the Coffee Table Crate Color - Brown, but I’ll be a bit less cliché, and say my good friend Dave, the Bird Hat, named after the main character from one of my favorite movies, 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Movie Month is Here! What’s your favorite Disney movie?
Well, I guess what you consider a Disney movie is important here. I’d say Monster’s Inc if you include Pixar. If we’re talking the Animated Canon, I’m gonna go towards Wreck It Ralph.

What are your favorite public rooms to hang out in?
I love catching a movie in the Sci-fi Dine In, but I’m gonna say the Inner-Space Shrinking room, because apparently I’m not the only one who loved 2001!

MyVMK Safety and Security

MyVMK’s ‘Call For Help’ button is easy to use and always accessible – just click on the HELP button on the lower right of the VMK player window. We encourage you to let us know if anything unsafe or suspicious catches your attention.

image

Tip: Remember the ‘Call For Help’ is like MyVMK’s 911. So while we encourage you to use it, please only do so for serious player issues. And like 911, using ‘Call For Help’ to report false information will get you in trouble too, so make sure you’re reporting the incident or player accurately.

If you do have a serious problem, tell us immediately! The faster you use the ‘Call For Help’ button to make us aware of a problem, the more effective we can be in taking care of the issue. So please, tell us immediately if you have a serious problem and help make MyVMK a fun and safe place for everyone.

Silence is Golden… The Ignore Button is Red!

image

Tip: If a player is ever being mean to you or bothering you, you can click on their avatar to bring up their player card. From there, click the red “Ignore” Button to no longer receive messages from them. Make the best of MyVMK!

Staff Impersonation is NEVER allowed!

Impersonating Staff Members is never allowed in MyVMK. If a player says they are Staff, make sure they’re wearing the orange Mickey Pin and have VMK_ (for moderator) or HOST_ (for Hosts) in their title.

Remember, MyVMK Staff will never ask you to trade any items.

image

You can always spot STAFF and HOSTS because they will always wear the orange Mickey Pin.
