    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.

    So I'm seriously considering bringing back the banner contest which was formerly cancelled.
    But, alas, I want to make sure people would be interested in joining in on it. I also want to find out the reason why people wouldn't be interested in it.

    So, members of VPL, do you wish to see the banner contest brought back?
    Reply below stating yes or no. If not, please explain why, so I can address the situation and handle it accordingly.

    If interest is really high and members communicate efficiently as to why they aren't interested, I will not only bring the contest back but make it better. :)

    So far it will be, as there isn't any legitimate reason against it happening, lol.

    What do you think are some good suggestions to make the contest more enticing?

    Maybe having a choice on the prizes?

    Like, they could choose between a cash prize, "cash points" for a negotiated game, or a membership for a negotiated game? Because some people on these forums might just want more points for the games they play.

    I was clearly interested! I just needed to find the time to make it since I literally just got done with vacation! (PLUS might make art FOR the banner just for donation for VPL)

    Don't forget to count the people who already made banners when the contest was open. ;)

    There was a $20 banner contest. It was cancelled because VPL upgraded to a more expensive server.

    Of course, their banners will still be counted. @Moonlight That is correct, and I'm sorry for canceling it, but it was my best choice of action until @PaulSonny and @Gabby said they'll put up the pot money.

    @Gabby- Not really sure...

    Maybe people can make their own banners right, but the real competition starts when people use their banners to advertise on other site (such as Facebook or pet sites that allow that kind of thing). This way, a second winner can be determined by who attracted the most new visitors or something like that. XD (So one winner will win by having the best design and the other by having the most traffic brought in. :p)

    I'm interested! : )

    I think if there were more sources of images to use that'd be great. (Or a specific post of pets to see who can get more creative with what...?) I remember you had to get permission to use an image from the petsite's owner.. but what if I wanted to use a Neopets image? I doubt I'd ever get a response x'D

    :3 Thanks so much @Pepper-Head for your suggestion.

    The final verdict is to reopen the banner contest. I just need to verify this information with the staff team and then a new post will go up for the contest <3
