Infobutton.jpg The Info button will tell you information about any room that you are in, in both public and personal areas. Instances are like different dimensions of the same room. In your own room the Info button allows you to edit the name and description of your room as well as select "furnishing mode", which turns your ability to move furniture on and off. You can also enable the room to allow everyone to come to your room, along with choosing whether you want only friends, people with tickets, your friends and people with tickets, or just yourself. The newest addition is the Clear Room button, in which you can clear all the items in your room, all together, and return them to your inventory.

As VMK was being promoted before its opening, waiting players found this toolbar on the teaser images:


Icons included: Info, Travel, Stuff, Mail, Emotes, Text, Magic, Camera, Preferences, Help, and Exit.

When VMK opened to the public on 27 June 2005, some button graphics were updated and the Shop button was added:


Icons included: Info, Travel, Stuff, Mail, Shop, Emotes, Text, Magic, Camera, Preferences, Help, and Exit. The Preferences button offered two tabs: Character for clothing and message, and sound control.


4 April 2006 introduced the in-game Quest and the Q button was added to the toolbar, sacrificing some of the Text area:


On 2 October 2006 the toolbar was changed again: Preferences was split into Character and Settings. To maximize the Text area, the Exit button was shortened from the word 'Exit' to 'X', the 'Q' button was made noticeably smaller, and all the buttons were tightened up to save space.
