Holiday greetings VMK’ers! Live and direct from VMK Central, it’s the latest MyVMK news! And now just back from chilling in the Matterhorn for a few months, heeeeere’s Yeti!
Hey there! Or should I say HoHoHo there?! What, were you expecting someone else other than the Yeti, haha! We’re gonna make it a Holly Jolly Holiday this month! In fact that’s the theme for December! We’ve got loads of great items and events coming this month and if you’re good maybe we’ll even throw in a few surprise gifts, just for you!
Happy Holiday Crates!
New Holiday Crates have just been released! You can obtain these new crates and keys randomly when visiting NPCs, playing mini-games, or collecting shells in Captain’s Quest Quarters. You can also purchase Silver Keys in the Pins Section of the Christmas Shop for 500 credits each! Not only are there some great Holiday items in these new crates, but the crates themselves are great for room building! Happy Holidays and good luck!
Main Street is Decked Out for the Holidays!
The worst of MyVMK’s snowstorm has finally cleared up and Main Street is decked out in Holiday decorations for the entire month of December! Go walk down Main Street with your friends for some serious Holiday cheer!
Gingerbread Holiday Room Building Competition
Those Gingerbread pieces are pretty sweet, huh? I get hungry just building with them! Which brings me to an event you’re going to be super excited to hear about – MyVMK’s first ever Gingerbread House & Holiday Room Competition!
Here’s your chance to show the Kingdom just how much holiday spirit you’ve got!
Build your best Gingerbread House or Holiday Room using the Holiday and Gingerbread pieces. Use a winter theme or any theme (Holiday Jungle Cruise, anyone?), but you must use Gingerbread and Holiday pieces in your room.
This is an individual room competition. You must submit your registration following our guidelines below:
1. The room MUST BE NAMED in the following way: “Gingerbread House (your player name)”
2. When you register ONLY PROVIDE your player name and the name of the room you are entering in the competition.
PLEASE NOTE: If your name does not fit in the room title “Gingerbread House”, please make sure you have your room titled “Gingerbread House,” your room, provided you follow the other guidelines, will be judged.
3. Gingerbread Houses/Rooms will be judged by the following categories:
- Best Theme - Most Creative - Best Overall (this includes both most creative and best theme)
There will be 10 First Prize winners and 1 Grand Prize winner from each category.
Registration opens today, Friday December 6th at 6:00 P.M. EST. Only the first 1000 players that register (and do so following the guidelines) will be accepted.
To register for the contest, simply email email@example.com and follow the guidelines listed above.
When you register please make sure that you enter a valid email address that can receive messages from us. Registration will close when we have received 1000 player entries.
Again, only the first 1000 players that follow the registration guidelines and enter the contest when registration is open will be judged.
We will not be accepting any empty or non-themed rooms. Your room must have effort put into it in order for it to be judged. In order to keep the theme of the contest gingerbread related, we ask that no pixels be visible in your room. You may use them, but it should be hidden.
Your Gingerbread house/holiday room must be completed by midnight December 25th.
Judging will begin on Thursday, December 26th and end Monday, January 13th. Winners will be announced on Tuesday the 14th of January. A Room Judging Flag will be placed in your room once your room has been judged.
While it is not required, MyVMK encourages you to keep your room open during the event so other players can enjoy what you have created. Prizes for the event will be announced after registrations have been closed.
Begin planning your Gingerbread Holiday treat today!

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.
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!
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.
You can always spot STAFF and HOSTS because they will always wear the orange Mickey Pin.
That’s it for now, but we are just getting started! Be sure to check in every day for more Holly Jolly Holiday fun! Happy Holidays from all your friends here at MyVMK!
