Welcome to Virtual Pet List - the fastest growing online games forum on the internet

Would you like to become a member of the largest and most successful virtual pets & sim games community on the internet today? We've been opened since 2011 and since then, we've been providing developers, artists, players and writers with the most relevant, up to date, quality and in depth content covering the entire online games community. So, if you just like virtual pet sites, we have you covered. But, if you prefer sim games, well we're here for you as well. However, if you're a new game developer and you're looking to show off your game to all of our members, then we'd love to hear all about your game in our sneak peeks forum. Just because our name is Virtual pet list doesn't mean pet games is the only thing we talk about. Our community talks about technology, making money, making art, writing and a lot more. So, please don't be afraid to say hello to everyone here because you never know what type of friends you'll make on our community. We strive to be friendly and offer positive discussions. We're very passionate, caring and hard working members of these niche, so if you hear about a new pet game from your friend, then it's highly likely that your friend found that game on our forum. If you want to learn anything about developing your own online game, then just go through our guides forum. You'll notice that whatever you're seeking on other developer's communities has more than likely already been talked about, researched and has already been put into good use by highly skilled developers.

  1. Guest,

    When you buy something off another VPL member, then please be sure to leave a transaction review about your experience as a buyer or seller about the other person. You can do this here! This will help all future transaction as many people look at past experiences before they decide to work for someone! So if you want to be ahead of the game, leave a review! Its fast, free and can help in many ways! \ In the future, we'll implement an itrader plugin that'll handle feedback for both buyers and sellers.

Freelance Coder

Discussion in 'Completed Transactions' started by tldr, Aug 4, 2012.

  1. I'm looking to freelance. I can improve your site, start building it for you or fix it. I can code in MVC, procedural or OOP depending on what you prefer or what your game is currently built using.

    I have experience in PHP and Ruby, using databases such as MongoDB, MySQL, PostgreSQL and frameworks like Rails, Ramaze, CakePHP, CodeIgniter and Slim.

    Pricing
    $17.50/hr. I program by the hour in 'packages,' what this means is I will quote you on how long a project will take me and then that will be a fixed price. So if I think something will take two hours, I'll charge you $35.00 even if it takes me longer.

    What Can I Do
    I can code anything you need done in a reasonable amount of time. Any errors will be fixed regardless of when they're found and I will revise my coding up to three times to better suit your tastes if needed. I test all my coding heavily as well to ensure its quality and security. For an estimate of what your project would take me, don't hesitate to contact me.

    Quotes
    For an estimate of how long something will take, either post on here or private message me. If you request a quote and I find I'm unable to do it in the time quoted, I will still charge you for the quoted time.

    Payment
    I require 50% of the payment up front, once this half is paid, I will start coding, I will show you a demo and pieces of the source code and if you don't require any changes, I will then require the final 50% before sending you the source code. I take payments via Paypal or Google Wallet.

    Examples
    Please note these are only controllers, views and models are required for the examples to function. I will not publish any models or views even on request as I want to prevent stealing of my work.
