    02/26/07 - Yavn Speaks

    2/26 – This week Yavn has the 411 on EPCOT Quests and more ways to party in Club 33! As well as a new room makeover with HOST_Sparky, and an introduction to the 'Month of Green'! Take it away, Yavn!

    Hello, hello, hello! This week I've been asked by the VMK Hosts and Moderators to remind you about a things going on in the VMK community. So without any further ado, let's get down to business, and if time permits, I may even serve up some tasty Q&A.
    What about EPCOT?
    So there's a quite a bit of confusion among VMK'ers about the 4 EPCOT Quests (the 2nd EPCOT Quest launched today) and what the prize is. So here is the Yavn 411 on the EPCOT Quest:
    The one and only EPCOT Guest room.
    - In all there are 4 different EPCOT Quests. The first EPCOT Quest launched last week, the second one launched today and the next 2 Quest launch on March 5th and March 12th. All the Quests will run until March 31st, so get in the game and get Questing.

    - To win the EPCOT Guest room, complete any one of the 4 Quests for that fabulous prize.
    - There's only one 1 EPCOT Guest Room, so even if you complete all 4 Quests, basically you end up winning the same EPCOT Guest Room  4 times. Some VMK'ers are asking why we're giving away the same room 4 times and the answer is pretty simple - because you asked for it. In the past when we've given away rooms as prizes many of you wanted a way to get more then one. So, the EPCOT Quest gives you a chance to do just that. Play the Quests! Win the rooms! And before you know it we might even have some Epcot Furniture to decorate it with! ;-)
    By the way, be sure to check out the new homepage poll this week - we want to know what you think about the Epcot Quest, as well as the prize – and give us your feedback. Because we do listen to your comments and want to keep making VMK better and better!
    Party in Club 33! UPDATE!
    The only way to party in Club 33 is to win the title of Best Guest Room, but starting soon our Hosts will be running Special Quest Kiosks that will have Club 33 Tickets – as prizes! Check the Community Calendar to see when and where. We're also working on more ways to make Club 33 available to you, as well as some special events that will be taking place there.
    Yavn's Mailbag
    It's been while since I've dug into the old mail bag, when I do it seems like we're getting many of the same questions (When is Carpet coming out?, Will Green Flips ever be sold?, (and my personal favorite) Can I have a free Inferno???) but there are some pretty good questions in the recent pile of mail, so let's take a second and answer 'em now. Remember, if you have any questions send them in, and either I or Yeti (I hear he's going to take a stab at becoming a VMK game counselor) will answer them for you.
    Q: Any chance of having some of the Host Events start earlier? Many of the events take place late or during dinner time for those of us in the East Coast. Thanks.
    A: Take a look at the Community Calendar, we've started running some events earlier. We are playing with the days and time too, to see what works best for everone.
    Q: What ever happened to the Turnstile? I thought it was going to be out months ago?
    A: After testing the Turnstile we found a few issues with the functionality and have been working to fix them. We hope to have news on the release of this item very soon.
    Q: The extra credits from Fireworks remixed and Haunted Mansion games are great! Any chance we'll see the Pirates game give more credits too?
    A: That's an interesting thought. In fact, the response to February Fun Days (remember, this is the last week) has been so good we're considering something like extra credits for Pirates too! Stay tuned for more info on that!
    Q: I really need a Room Makeover - any suggestions on how I can get picked?
    A: Well, first off, the best way NOT to get picked is to make a room with a title like 'I Need a Makeover.' Instead, I'd suggest having your friends send in notes on why your room is Makeover worthy - to make things easier we'll be doing more VMK Room Makeover's each week, so keep an eye out for more winners soon.
    Speaking of Room Makeover's, last week we found our second lucky player in need of a VMK Room Makeover. Let's take a break from my rambling for a moment to check in with HOST_Sparky for and update on last week's Makeover - take it away Sparky!
    VMK Room Makeover – UPDATE!
    HOST_Sparky
    Howdy y'all! Well after tons of searchin' I was, finally able to find just the right room for our February 20th VMK Room Makeover! I searched high and low (even over and under) until I ran smack dab into green-nino sittin' on a lonely Pirate Throne in his guest room. After a few howdy-do's and little chit chat, I realized the only thing in this Space Mountain Guest Room was… well, SPACE!
    Instantly the gears started turning and I started pacin' around tryin' to figure out what this room needed. I green-nino, "What's your absolute favorite thing here in VMK?" "Fire!" he exclaimed! And that was just the inspiration I needed to get me going!
    Green-nino's Space Mountain guest room before the makeover…
    …and after! Now this space cowboy is ready for the ride of his life!
    I was truly 'fired up,' up went the flames
    and down went the tracks! Fire and ice appeared in the middle of a crater lake! (Of course, I had to make sure there were enough asteroid chairs and crater couches to sit a spell should any of green-nino's friends get dizzy from goin' around and around on the never ending mini-coaster.) I added two Lumieres and a couple of colorful candelabras for just the right touch. (No one will be needin' a Expedition Everest Jacket to climb these space mountains, that's for sure!)
    When I was finished, green-nino was quite excited and couldn't wait to show all of his friends his brand new room! I waved good-bye and set off to find the next room for our weekly VMK Room Makeover. (But first, I was off to find my pal QA_caffdawg – who I think I lost somewhere 'round the Blue Bayou - she sure loves those Monte Cristo sandwiches!) Ahhh, what a good feeling it is to makeover a room in need.
    - HOST_Sparky
    I See Green People
    Well that's about it for this week - thanks again to HOST_Sparky for the Room Makeover update and to you for your questions and comments! Remember to play that EPCOT Quest! And don't forget to take advantage of the last 2 February Fun Days and keep checking my blog for more info, cause you never now when we might release something new and cool!

    Recycling make the world go 'round

    OK, so one last thing before I sign off here – do you have a favorite color? Me? I'm pretty partial to green. In fact, I like green so much I've asked the staff to make March the 'Month of Green.' And when I say 'green' I don't just mean clovers and shamrock shakes – I'm talking about thinking 'green' and taking care of the planet. So get your recycling ready and join us next week for the start of 'Month of Green!'
    Ok, perhaps a minty shake to go along with my green Churro wouldn't be a bad idea…
    See you in VMK!
    -Yavn



    I took the pictures out, feel free to look at them for yourself on the VMK site, but there was nothing really interesting besides the makeover pictures.

    Re: 02/26/07 Yavn Speaks

    So what are your feelings about double credits on fireworks tomorrow? I know it will technically be March but there was Mansion for a 4th week so it would only be fair. Also Yavn said "this is the last week". I am not sure if that really supports for or against it but it's something. I am really hoping that there is, but I believe it is not on the calendar, so that leads me to think that fireworks is getting the short straw here oO.

    Re: 02/26/07 Yavn Speaks

    I was really counting on the last Fireworks Double Credit Day. I must have started the game over 60 times. I only ended up with about 40,000 credits. I was expecting to make at least 70,000 that day.
    My fireworks games have gone down hill. Today was the first time I broke 7,000 since Thursday.
    I would really like to see another of these days.

    Personally I don't mind if there isn't another fun day - I don't play the selected games because of the crowds. However I do think there should be one last fireworks fun day to make it fair .

    I wish they would just leave them doubled or have the double day permanent. I can get just barely more than I used to on normal days in the old game so it's not that big of a deal.

    Well there are No Bonus credits for Fireworks today . Too bad because I had to work every Thursday in Feb. and missed the Fun Days.
