    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.

    How do you all feel about baby pageants? Do you think they are a bad idea or a good idea?

    Personally, I was apart of a baby pageant when I was young. xD I won best eyes.
    My mom didn't come back though because the parents were so ruthless. The judges were cracked up too.

    Interesting choice of words.

    Why do you feel that way though?

    @Gabby i understand that people have fun doing them but most of the time its the parents who have the most fun
    ive seen a lot of shows and know a few kids who were in them when they were younger and never have i seen one of those kids say 'IT WAS REALLY FUN!!!!!' because theyre usually forced into it
    if a child wants to get all dolled up then fair does but the parents usually dont realise how miserable the kids are about the whole ordeal so i really dont approve of them. forcing your child to do anything is horrible.
    i think that pageants are also kind of sleazy. like, you honestly cant tell who is in the audience watching those little girls do the swimsuit contests. it shouldnt be allowed.

    it might just be what I've seen in the media, but any pageants that are kids are just parents dressing up their children like hooker barbie dolls. Baby ones might be a little different, I have no idea. But for little kids... usually that's terrible.

    It seems to me like its a gimmick for parents to make money off of their child's beauty.

    No offense, but it's free 'child pornography' for pedophiles. I don't like the idea of child pageants. Chelsea will not be in one period!

    I'm not offended. I don't agree that I was apart of one, and my mother would never bring me back.. LOL. It was a fun thing to do at the time, a rash decision with the family. Nothing serious

    For the most part I'm indifferent to them. On a personal level I find it really uninteresting and wouldn't really choose to push my kids in that direction. Looking at the bigger picture though and pretending that I do care I think if it is something the kids WANT to do then I think that's fine and good. I kind of look at it as a not well known sport I guess. For those kids who don't like it who are crying while being spray tanned and refusing to do who's parents are dragging them around and forcing them... I think that's shameful and I don't see it being beneficial at all to the child. A happy child who wants to though I can see how they might enjoy dressing up and it might help with their confidence and public demeanor.
