  • Yavn Speaks 10/2

    Welcome to the latest edition of Yavn Speaks (for those of you that keep asking, it's pronounced Yah-Vin). Did you guys like all the info I dropped in last week's newsletter? What do you think of the new site? Cool huh? How do I top that? Well, while you've probably spent lots of time exploring the new and improved, I can proudly say there's lots more to come - including many great features that will be rolling out in the next few months!

    We're probably most excited about showing you some of the personalization features - features that will allow you to see at a glance which pins you're wearing and how many credits you have. We'll also start focusing on more park info and tips to make your next trip to Walt Disney World or The Disneyland Resort even better. Check out Jake's blog in the coming weeks and you'll see what I mean.

    Until then, let's dig into the old mailbag and address some questions that came up from last week:

    Q: Yavn! Thanks for all the great info last week, but when will the staff start wearing new uniforms and when does all the new stuff come out?

    A: Glad you liked the info. Log in starting today and check out the changes!

    Q: I still don't understand Single Use Magic. Does it mean that the regular Magic Pins will go away? Will all my Magic Pins change and become Single Use Pins?

    A: Ok here's how they work: Each Single Use Magic Pin can be used just one time, after you use the pin it disappears from your inventory. Single Use Pins also have an expiration date, if you don't use it by the expiration date the pin will disappear from your inventory.

    The plan is to sell some of these Single Use Pins (these pins will be much less expensive then the Traditional Magic Pin, perhaps 200 credits?) as well as offer them as prizes in game and quests. We do plan to still have regular, or Traditional Magic Pins as prizes. For example, in just a few days you'll see an old favorite back on sale in both Traditional and Single Use varieties. And not to worry, the pins you currently own will not change! And in case I didn't mention this before, Single Use Pins cannot be combined or traded.

    Q: How does that new treasure room work again?

    A: Each time you score 10 wins in the Pirates of the Caribbean game (either version), you will get the standard reward - plus a key! The key you receive depends on the level of the game you play. Bronze Keys come from Level 1, Silver Keys from Level 2, and Gold Keys from Level 3. Put the key on (just like you would a pin) and walk to the correct chest in the treasure room. Now use the key. Ta-dah! The chest will open and you'll see if it's empty or has a treasure inside. As I mentioned last week, one of the prizes in the Gold Chest will be the Single Use Coral Magic Pin - there are other items as well, in fact some that are completely unique and have not been seen before.

    Q: Now that staff has new red uniforms will Green Flips and Green Mickey Hats be sold for Halloween?

    A: Nope. As I've said before, Green Flips and Green Mickey Hats are not going on sale.

    Ok, so in the spirit of Halloween how about a few more surprises? Here are two more things that go live this week:

    Show Trade Requests

    To stop unwanted trades at unwanted times, you will now see a new option in our revised interface that allows you to turn off ALL trading requests. When this option is on other players will not be able to request trades.

    Teleporter Matcher

    Tired of losing that Teleporter? Well, we've added a handy feature to help you locate it, just click on a Teleporter and the matching Teleporter will flash! Earth shattering? No... Very useful? Yes!

    Well that's it for this week. Be sure to keep watching the site and especially this page - with Halloween in just a few short weeks, you never know what, or when surprises may pop up.

    See you in VMK,

    The teleporter thing is nice!

      I am not sure what coral magic does, exactly. Does anyone know for sure?

        My friend actually used it and it was basically the Davy Jones Costume.

        Made by me

          Oh yeah, I remembering hearing something about a Davy Jones costume once. I didn't know it would be single-use magic, though.

            Yes, it is! And if it was always there the MiceChat Portal Project never would've happened. :cwink:
