    Virtual Pets

    Welcome to the Virtual Pet list forum!
    We're a virtual pets and sim games community and the largest forum in our industry. Game owners can use our forum to their advatange by promoting/advertising their games to our users and receive feedback/reviews from those members that try their games out. We support developers of all kinds from RPG developers, sim game developers to virtual pet site developers. We want to see more games in our industry come across more success and that's why we try our best to release as many guides/articles regarding online gaming development as we can.
    We're unlike other forums in our industry because we try our best to be there for our users no matter what and give them advice whenever they ask for it. Running an online game isn't an easy task, but with our many resources that we've built since 2011, you'll learn a lot from our online community. Please don't ever be afraid to ask a question on the forums because if you never ask, then you'll never receive an answer to your question and you can only improve by asking other users for help/advice.
    We have a lot of virtual pet sites' owners and sim game owners that are very frequent visitors on our online community. Along with artists, writers and programmers that come here looking for work and games to work for. Our members who are artists sell art in our art marketplace and programmers are allowed to sell their scripts in the programming marketplace. We also allow game owners to sell their game in our general marketplace
    In early 2011, we decided to make a comeback to the internet because in 2010, we had a minor setback and we had to re-launch without any content, but with a lot of time, patience, hardwork and effort, we've managed to rebuild the Virtual pet list community into something better than it was before. We actually registered our domain name on November 4th, 2004, but we were only a directory then and all we had was a basic comments system for users to post things on their favorite games..
    So, what are you waiting for, why don't you join today? If you have any problems figuring out our security code, then here's a hint, it has millions upon users and has been around since 1997.
    Our list of virtual pet sites and directory of sim games have a lot of different games listed, so we're pretty sure that you may find some games that suits your needs as a player of sim games or virtual pet sites.
    If you're still curious about a certain game that you'd like to play, then please check out some of our game reviews that were written by some of our great contributors and our interviews with respective virtual pet site owners, sim game owners, artists, writers and programmers that have worked in this industry.

    Well, I'm not sure what to think about this type of parenting, but check this:

    Do you agree with this type of parenting? Or what do you think about this?

    I think a 12-year-old shouldn't be on Facebook to start with.

    I agree, I think 14 is a way better age to allow them to use social media. And plus, I don't know why her parents allowed her on Facebook at that age. I mean, come on..

    I'm not sure I agree with the 14 being a way better age. I think if you have a mature kid over the age of 12 that they should be allowed on social networks, as long as they are monitored by one of their guardians. (The guardian has an account too and constantly checks what their son/daughter says)

    Kids will be kids so of course they won't stop getting social media pages, but the parents need to monitor them more

    lulz It's a nice move from the parents.
    If I had a kid on a social media site, I'd watch their 'socializing' like a hawk.
    So they don't post stupid things. >_>

    Once they're 18 though. lulz Have fun kids.

    I think bravo. What her little letter says is very true and I don't think it is terribly embarrassing or hurtful to her self esteem.

    Thank God for parents like this because now I don't have to run across her young disrespectful butt. Props to the parents for keeping her from being a nuisance.

    Or be a mean parent and block their social media accounts from being used. Unless they know how to get around it with proxies, then that's all they got. And plus, it's all good - she deserves what her parents did because she shouldn't have been posting pictures like that. If CPS caught wave of that, the parents would have heard a ear-full.:eek:

    I honestly just think social media takes a way a lot of time kids can spend with their family or be involved in sports or pursuing their hobbies.
    Sure, you can stay connected with other people - your friends - but sometimes you really have to stop that connection and have a bit of family / face-to-face time.

    I wouldn't mind having kids who use social media sites for organizing clubs, fundraisers, or things like that - - but if socializing and just posting status updates/pictures are taking up most of their time, I wouldn't let them on.
    There's so much that's out there in the world that people miss just because they FB / etc so much. :)

    A good balance is needed, that's all.
    And I seriously seriously love that parenting style. ;D

    Nothing like humiliation that makes people not want to repeat their mistakes again.

    Well, the parent kind of asked for it really. I think the minimum requirement age is 13 to be able to even sign up to Facebook. Where was the parent when the child was signing up for the site?

    "In order to be eligible to sign up for Facebook, people must be 13 years of age or older. " - From the Facebook Help pages.

    I think 13 is a good age to be introduced to online social media. However, I think it should be done with moderation and education on how it works.
