    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.

    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.

    Excerpt from a forum controller:
