Join us for our HOST events this month and see what some of your favorite HOSTs have been working on just for you! Just for April Fools’ Day, winners will receive a Springtime Date with one of our lovely staff members. Look at how friendly we all look! Those defeated will receive a Moment of Quiet Introspection with VMK_Gliss in her Detention Hall. And finally, the queue prize will be a "you tried" Pin!
Join us this month for Untradable Pin Trading! Ever wanted your very own set of pins dedicated to your favorite HOSTs? Enhance your lanyard with a set that highlights our beautiful HOSTs faces. Oh, did we forget to mention that the pins aren’t tradable?
We do not accept any pins for pin trading, as this is a completely made-up event.
Join the MyVMK Staff for an impromptu game of Hide and Seek! All throughout the month, the staff will be hiding. Forever. Games will not be announced because players will not be able to find us. To win, you must find a staff member that is hidden, STAND NEXT to them, and be the first to say the following statement: “I found you (StaffMemberName)!” Unfortunately, it won’t be possible for you to win. Too bad, because the prize is one of these beautiful pins featuring your favorite Moderators’ faces!
Pull this month's exclusive pins from the Sword in the Stone! Just kidding. These will never be in the stone. But look at how cute our Graphic Designers look on these pins! Guess they’ll be trapped in the stone forever!
Avast there mateys! After nine hours straight of ship battle what better reward than to pull one of these rare treasures from the past? Sail on over to the Pirates Treasure room for a zero-percent chance to plunder some great loot! How unfortunate though, because our Promotional team is looking simply adorable on these pins! Wait...I think some of these prizes look familiar...
For showing outstanding acts of kindness and spreading love throughout the community, this months award goes to.. HOST_Crash
"I would like to nominate Crash! He is always willing to lend a helping hand, and his generosity extends miles! A pleasure to have around. A hard worker. A team player. Always a great conversation to be had! Someone you can definitely count on! :)" -HOST_Nala

April Fools’ Best Guest Room
Join HOST_Jessie in The Amazing Museum of Red!
"I spent months thinking about a theme for BGR. I thought and thought. Then with 5 minutes to spare I came up with the most amazing idea. Why not showcase all the red furniture I owned. I searched as fast as I could, and I am so lucky I found this priceless piece of art. It was so priceless that I had to protect it so no one could touch it. Come and see the one and only square behind a rope. I am a minimalist at heart. Just like Gusteau: Anyone can cook, but only the fearless can be great. I was so fearless and this is my masterpiece."
The Best Guest Room Winner receives:

Ever wanted to know more about your favorite staff member? Now you can! Every month we will be interviewing a different member of the MyVMK Staff. Here is the most recent interview!
In this special edition of Ask the Staff, we’re featuring... HOST_Crash!
When is the best time to use your treasure keys?
I find five in the morning to be most ideal. The emptier the room, the luckier I feel. Though it hasn't worked out well for me, I can build a nice sandcastle out of all the coal dust.
How many is a good number of keys to hoard before using them?
Hashtag: It only takes one.
What is your favorite item for building?
The pixel for sure. Anyone can build with fancy rare and retired items, but few can master the skilled art of pixel building.
What is your favorite MyVMK life lesson?
When I said to a friend, “I dare you to room clear” and they did. RIP Castle Oblivion.
What is your favorite moral philosophical dilemma to discuss?
What to do in the event I see an on-coming trolley about to hit innocent bystanders tied to the tracks.
What is your favorite event that you’ve hosted so far?
My sing along quests. I think everyone secretly loves singing: “In the tiki tiki tiki tiki tiki room” seventy times. Whether it’s true or not, I’ll keep thinking that.
What is your favorite dark ride and why?
Alice in Wonderland because I’m afraid to say Peter Pan’s Flight; I don’t actually want people to find me riding for hours at a time every day. The questions I’d face like "How have you not pulled the rare or ultra yet?" The stone likes giving me ash, ok. -pulls sword- -coughs coal dust- the story of my life times ten. Another day, another day.
What would the theme of your Club 33 Party be if you ever had one?
Ode to Orange Gumdrops.
What was the most helpful piece of constructive criticism you’ve received?
I have too many pointless tasks in quests. Every task should involve a mini game of some kind. People don’t like their time being wasted with nonsensical tasks like "smile" and "wave". I am still working on this.
Why did you pick a name that wasn’t a Disney Character?
Alright, no one told me Crash wasn’t a character. I’ve been living a lie for years now. Let me be!
What advice would you like to give to players?
Following the game rules will never fail you! I know I don’t want to be sent to VMK_Gliss’ office again, twice was enough… My other advice would be practicing those mini game scores, you never know when that might be useful for something.
