    Welcome to the Virtual Pet list forum!
    We're a virtual pets and sim games community and we're the largest forum in our industry. We have a lot of virtual pet sites' owners and sim game owners that are quite active 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've been opened since 2011, however, we've owned our domain name since 2004 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 and directory of sim games have a lot of games listed that you can try out and possibly enjoy. If you're still curious about a game to play, you can 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 done work in this industry as a whole.

    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?

    May I ask what you mean by 'custom skin contest'?

    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.
