    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.

    So, everyone here probably has different ways to wake themselves up. I read how eating an Apple in the morning can wake up compared to a cup of Coffee. I also read that Tea is a great way to wake up especially if its a lot of caffeine in it. Specifically black tea, but all tea is good in my opinion.

    So, what are some of your best methods of waking up? Do you just drink coffee? Do you take a shower right when you get up to help you awake? Or, what do you do? Discuss your ways of waking up here.

    On school mornings, I always, always have a cup of tea. It's really good to wake you up, and especially for my voice. :p

    Best way to wake me up...Lemme get up on my own lols. People have a tendency to try to wake me up by jumping on me or stuff like that.

    Yeah...pull it with me and you'll be in a headlock while I start choking you in my half awake rage, pleading for me to let go and that you'll let me sleep longer.

    I hate when people call my phone early in the morning and wake me up. It's so hard to roll back over and sleep again. When someone wakes me up earlier, I go off like a tick-tock bomb because I love getting some rest.

    I swear people seriously text me at 1 am just to wake me up =/. Normally, I'm in bed by 10 or 11 and then EVERYONE starts to text me at 1 am. I've yelled at a few people before cause they woke me up lols.

    Ya, my messages alert isn't so loud so it doesn't wake me up. My only ringer that's loud is for calls. Alerts don't wake me up because its a low-pitched sound. If I'm awake though, I hear the alerts. I have facebook/twitter alerts going to my phone, so I sometimes receive those at the middle of night. If I'm in a light-sleep, I'll hear it, but other than that, nope.

    I can't wake up very well, if I set an alarm it just makes me sleep even longer so if I just leave it I wake up during the 10am hour.

    Has anyone tried to eat an apple once they wake up to see if it helps to wake you up? I read something the other day that eating an apple can wake you up just like coffee does.

    The best way is exposure to sunlight. However, if there is a loud noise that'll wake me up pretty well. Noises out of place I also pick up on (is a very light sleeper). Even the presense or movement of something will wake me up (my can can stare at me and I'll wake up, true storry). I also recentally found out that nothing wakes you up faster than two kittens who think your bed is a jungle-gym in the middle of the night.

    My room is dark as heck so it blocks out the sun. It's so helpful on the weekends when my girlfriend and I are trying to sleep in. Which usually doesn't happen because I always get up early. -_-

    Yup, I'm in the same boat as you. Sometimes I wake up when my girl gets up for work and I hear her get up - also the alarm, and the light on. But, if I do get up, I tend to fall back asleep for a couple more hours. I hate when I hear the alarm though because I'm usually in a deep sleep when that happens.

    As anyone ever had cold water dumped on them by their parents, cousins or any other family members to wake up?:confused:
