    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.

    If we launched a $100 contest - what should we have? A referral contest - you'd have to refer the most active people - that create topics and also engage in current posts.

    Or a posting contests - where the user who makes the most quality blog posts, and threads - would win $100, but then again, we could have 3 prizes that'll equal $100.

    This is coming soon. I just need to set up my paypal account, and then its on... I will also buy some banners from the artists here as well - that way we can have more supporting banners


    So, what do you guys think? Let's discuss because I know our potential here at VPL! I know our members are very creative and can spread the word about us - real because look at us now we're averaging 100 to 120 daily log ins already.

    We've only been back for 2 months and 2 days now - and we feel we owe it to our wonderful community members - you guys wanted us back!!!

    :cool:

    Has it really been only a tad over two months?

    This is astonishing progress; great work VPL.

    $100 really would make quite a contest. The response to it should be interesting.

    Eep, I'd say posting contest, because refferal contests NEVER work out, at least for me.

    I think it'd be difficult. Referral contest sounds like a bad idea that'd end up in VPL full of sock puppet accounts, and then who'd be the judge of "quality" comments/posts?

    I see the latter being a good way for people to get more involved in the community, at least. Referral just sounds like a bad idea.

    Is this going to be a monthly thing or something? :> That'd be cool.

    Well it all depends on our funds - and what we can come up with - or if we get support from others to help us out on contests. :) Pet sites can run contests here, same with our members. It's not just us that can run them here. :)

    Wow I say posting is fine as longg as the exact way of judging is explained. (how much is creating a topic worth compared to posting on the playhouse)

    I have a new idea - what if we used the $100 to launch a custom skin contest for us - of course, we'd have to find more funds to get a vBulletin skinner to do it - but I'm sure I can work some type of magic with a designer. :p

    What do you guys think?

    Well, we'd run a contest - the artists involved will have to create the best creative, and best looking skin for us to use on VPL - for branding purposes, right? I think so, we have a unique logo, and mascot - so why not come up with a custom skin that has both of these included?

    I'm not sure, but I think its a pretty good idea if I do say so myself - why? Gives the artist a great way to get some free promotion - and plus, it could be interesting to see what everyone could come up with, right?

    I like the layout idea a lot. Creating "quality" posts could kinda lead to spamming in a way, I think.

    I think its a rather restrictive contest, but its your money.
