    Virtual Pets

    Welcome to the Virtual Pet list forum!
    We're a virtual pets and sim games community and we're the largest forum in our industry. We have a lot of virtual pet sites' owners and sim game owners that are quite active 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've been opened since 2011, however, we've owned our domain name since 2004 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 and directory of sim games have a lot of games listed that you can try out and possibly enjoy. If you're still curious about a game to play, you can 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 done work in this industry as a whole.

    Well, since VPL is still growing - a lot of coders aren't here yet - or those that are good enough for you to hire - so if you post "Looking for a programmer", I'd recommend that you also try Freelancer.com - so that you can find someone willing to work in your budget range, and possibly some new coders - but if you request for a coder from there - and you're not sure if they're good enough - then ask for a code check or something on our programming general.

    Remember folks - coders help you out with your pet game, but they do cost money - Freelancer.com is a place that specializes in freelance work - and I've seen it recommended by a few people - so I thought I'd make a thread about it.


    Good luck finding coders - and if you've used Freelancer.com, then post your experiences with that site here.

    Keep in mind there can be a fee or percentage that goes towards the site itself... they have to make money too.

    My personal experiences with freelancer.com and guru.com have been horrible. A lot of bids from scammers, a lot of miscommunication with people who can't speak English (they claim to be in the U.S., but are actually outsourced), and a lot of failed timelines.

    Freelancer is awful. Honestly try DeviantART forums if you can't find anything here
