    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.

    What do you think about countdown timers for when a site is released?
    Do they help make good hype for the site?

    Yes, but only if you're 100% confident that you will be releasing on that day/hour. A delay with a countdown timer will not instill confidence from the user in your site.

    Well - whenever you think its ready - as a site owner - you need to decide - is this the right thing to do? Should I introduce a few screenshots, or pet images?
