    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.

    I know some pet sites have an auctions systems and/or a trades system, but which feature do you prefer using the most? Do you like auctions better than trading systems, or do you prefer trading systems? It's always nice to see how much a pet or item could fetch on an auction, but you sometimes can get more for your buck doing a trade for a particular pet or item, so which one you use the most?

    I prefer Trades. If I wanted to bid on something I'd do it on ebay.

    It's called being an auction sniper though. I used to do that a lot on Neopets when I played. See good items selling for cheap and snatching them, selling them for the right value in my shop.

    Well we've got that and a load of other discussions going on in the team right now, so even if I don't like them we might still have them.

    I like a world marketplace where selling players list items at a price of their choice, there is no sales fee, and buying players are automatically shown the cheapest few available of their selected item, with the option to continue looking at more expensive ones. Auctions are ok to have in addition to this (again, provided there is no sales fee) but auctions should never be the only option. Also, the sales interface should remember what the player last sold an item for and auto-fill that information to facilitate the player listing more of the same item. The player should not be able to list arbitrary-sized bundles of items (like a bundle of 6 fish). If an item is likely to be sold in bulk it should have official sizes it can be sold in (10, 100, and 1000 probably). Search results should not mix different bundle sizes together, but categorize them neatly to aid buyers.
