    Welcome to the Virtual Pet list forum!

    We're a Virtual Pets and Sim Games Community. We have a lot of Virtual Pet Sites Owners and Sim Games Owners that frequently visit, along with Artists, Writers and Programmers that come here looking for work and games to work for. Our Artists sell art in our Art Marketplace and Programmers are allowed to sell scripts in the Programming Marketplace. We've been opened since 2011 and since then we've grown and expanded quite nicely. What are you waiting for, why don't you join today?

    Our List of Virtual Pet Sites has a lot of Sim Games listed as well. You are more than welcome to check out our directory of sites and find a new game to play. If you're still curious about a game to play, you can check out some of our Game Reviews and Interviews with Coders, Artists, Writers and Game Owners of the industry.

    Has anyone ran a banner contest before. I am thinking of running a banner contest for my site's forum and I don't know how much I should offer the winner. Has anyone done anything like this before? If so how much has they given the winner.

    Well, I think it depends on the contest requirements and your site's currency.

    If it's a simple animation, like letters shining or wiggling a bit, or maybe there's a pet that's blinking, then I wouldn't offer too much. Does your site have other art contests? I would maybe go along with that reward, maybe a little more, especially if this is a one-time-deal.
    I know trophies and a special item (either for entering a valid entry or winning - you decide) are great incentives ^^ You could do that vs a money prize if you wanted.

    Good luck!
