    @cpvrcpvr, I got bored one day and googled list of virtual pet sites, and VPL showed up. I couldn't join, because I didn't know the color of night. LOL I am really glad you changed the random question.

    @EvolutionEvolution, Thank you!

    What was the security question? I don't remember changing it, I believe @EvolutionEvolution did, my apologies.

    What pet sites are you active on? Which one is your favorite? Have you seen our reviews forum yet?

    Ooo! Fun people come from Illinois. :D Fantastic!
    Well, actually, it depends on which part of IL you're coming from. Hehe.
    Are you Chicago or more central/southern...?

    @cpvrcpvr If I remember it correct, It was "What is the color of night"
    I had put purple,black, blue,dark blue, dark purple, and then googled it.

    I'm currently active on Marapets, and by active I mean i go on once a day to talk to some friends. Not as active as it was 5 years ago.

    Ya, Marapets doesn't really update frequently anymore, I wish @ianian would start updating the site again because it was so active in the past. What do you think about Mara's economy though?

    @GabbyGabby, I am right outside of Chicago.


    @cpvrcpvr I think its a pile of poop. The only real money makers are the AUs, and all ian does is add the new ones so he can make more money. It's very easy to make MP if you know what to buy though, which is very good for me and the club thing I'm in.

    So, I'm guessing you haven't came across this blog post that I wrote last year? The downfall of Marapets.

    I think once the money really started coming in, Ian started to get lazy - which is why most of their updates that are coming out, are in regards to their AUs, its ridiculous, and we all wonder why their user's online has decreased over 100% in the past few years. I remember the days when Mara used to have over 2,000 members online at a time, now it doesn't even past 600-800 users online.

    I just read it, and I agree 100% with it, along with a few of the quotes.
    I haven't seen Marapets get over 800 users online in forever. I think Ian needs to get some new admin. I've only seen Shaggy on, Indy left awhile back and Middy left a month or so ago. I don't know if it was temporary or not, but they aren't there now so Ian needs to step up. And the new artist, now that Laimey left, or however you spell her name, the art has gone up and down. The Dark Fairy pets need to be re-done, because they aren't even close to the sites style.


    @GabbyGabby, Haha, thank you! I'm just glad I joined now!

    I agree with you 100%, he doesn't really need new admins though, he needs a content manager who can update the site while he's gone, that's the site's downfall, not being updated frequently. He had everything down and out when he used to update a lot.

    The new artist is @NiGHTSNiGHTS, and someone else, but I'm not sure what their username is.

    @cpvrcpvr, A content manager is exactly what he needs, and would have no problem getting one if he tried, But that's the problem, he won't freaking try! I personally think he's gone off an gotten a life, which is okay but he needs to keep it updated.

    I already offered my hand out to him, I told him I'm willing to work for him. He hasn't given me an answer yet, but we'll see.

    @cpvrcpvr, I think his ego is to big. I wish he would hire you, at least it shows he's trying. Maybe Mara will get more active.

    Well, personally, Ian and I have been friends since 2005-2006 ish. He knows me. I used to work for Zetapets as a content manager, years ago, so experience isn't an issue with me. If he has an admin panel, to upload items, add pets, chage rarities of items, change quests rewards, upload new image of pets, especially redraws, then it would be cake-walk working for him.

    @cpvrcpvr, I hope you do get hired. I would think he has an admin panel, considering the management "help the owners run the site behind the scenes as well as fulfilling the same role as an Admin. They are responsible for the site in the owner's absence. [FONT=verdana, arial, helvetica, sans-serif]"

    [/FONT]
