Okay so I have decided to turn Virtual Pet List weekly into a blog and I will carry it on through here every week. This weeks issue will have a focus on Kingdom Sky, the new pet site that has been released with the exception of a review and possibly a few other things. I don't know how many of you remember Virtual Pet List weekly but I hope to restart it with a BANG. So without further or do here is issue number 3.
We'd like to welcome Comet to our artist team on PetRPG, so please say hello. They're new to the community.
This weeks best topics
Okay so I have been searching around the forums for the best kingdom sky topics this week and I highly recommend these ones for you to go read and possibly post.
New section: Say hello to our new users.
When most of us arrived we had a nice warm welcome and a hoard of people saying hello, it still happens now which I am pleased about but I'm going to find you three users introductions and if you have not already you should go say hello as what a nice gesture that would be
Pet site News.
I will post a couple of the best new articles posted on virtual pet list this week right here so you can think about maybe playing the site or just commenting on it.
Pet RPG - New plushies/donator revamp/New artist
New Item Artist
They've already made us a couple items, and just so you guys know this means we'll finally be back on track with new content.. hopefully!
Here's some of their items thrown in with our own so you guys can see the comparison of their art to current site work. Have big hopes for them. >
Looks like the plushie shop has received a new shipment of items! Better check them out while supplies last!
Donator Images have gotten a makeover!
We have changed the image for our gold status users.
If you have gold status already your avatars and icons should have changed already.
Thank you for Alkarious for posting this
Grophland - Atropine
Now in the potion shop ... atropine. Use with care!
This item changes the way that Groph's eyes are drawn, from the normal to a larger more anime style. It's not a potion, but rather a clothing item, so you can easily take it off again.
Thank you to Hituro for posting this.
My chosen pet site of the week this week is:
I highly recommend this new site to any one who feels like trying it, it has gone through a rough grand opening but it came out spectacular, if you want to register you are able to do so on Fridays
Review of the week
This weeks review comes from Trystan for posting a review about verpets, I will post a small clippit of the review, if you would like to see the full review please follow the link below
A long time ago, when I first joined Verpets, I was happy to see active staff who did their job well. Rules such as “no caps in the shoutbox” were enforced quickly. That's not a bad thing, no respectable site can post rules and not enforce them. Not to mention the amount of spam you get in the shoutbox once people think they can CAPSLOCK OMG N CHTSPK. It would have been irritating to most the people who actually spent their time in there.
Things have changed since then. Rules are enforced sporadically, and only when the staff is on. Staff members are on very rarely, save for the artist or two. The shoutbox is frequently spammed by meaningless goop, or a multitude of posts from the same user who posts the same thing. There are people talking about bra's, sex, drugs, alcohol... and none of this gets properly punished.
I have noticed things such as:
-User A gets banned for having two accounts
-User B does not even get scolded for talking about how her money was in a stripper's panties
-User D does not get scolded for cussing at and talking down upon the owners and mods
Now does any of that honestly make sense? Yes, having multiple accounts is against the rules... But out of those three offenses, it's the least worrisome.
Now, some of the staff have honest reasons for not being on. Others seem to be on staff specifically because they want the status boost. They don't actually do their jobs.
There was a time when there was a large community of regulars. It was hard to get integrated into their group without either being fabulous at art, or previously knowing one of them. That very group of regulars, many of which I either looked up to or tried to become friends with, has been slowly dying out over the years. Their intelligent, oft hilarious, and many times dramatic conversation has dwindled down to the ramblings of the very young. There is much spam, a lot of users taking advantage, and many (very many) users who act up just to see how long they'll be able to get away with it.
Some of the most popular people are intensely disrespectful towards others. I saw one popular user tell a new one not to talk to her, because the new user was “obnoxious and ignorant” as well as “stupid”.
I see so many new users quit because of the way they are treated.
Once again many thanks to Trystan for posting that review, if you would like to see the full review, follow the link above the clippit.
Virtual pet list always needs more reviews. Do you have a favourite pet site and think you can write a review about it well please do and you never know your review might be featured here next week.
