    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.

    Not really, I think the idea is for people who understand jQuery a lot more and don't want to use the conventional, messy JavaScript for HTML5.

    What's the point in using that instead of doing it the usual way?

    Because a lot of people prefer the jQuery syntax, like me. Also, this makes things a hell of a lot simpler and more understandable.

    It's so much easier to grasp and understand, the regular syntax is so confusing and causes me to write so much more than I need to, plus jQuery is the future of Javascript (I hope...).

    Okay...

    jQuery is most definitely the future of interactive websites (Or even non-interactive aspects of sites, e.g. the jQuery used to position elements my Website). Even though jQuery is only a library for JavaScript, I hope it replaces JavaScript in the near-future.

    I doubt, it is simply a framework and no own language and I don't see why it should become one.

    To get a even better taste, combine CoffeeScript with jQuery, that kicks ass for js-development.

    I've been playing around with this, and it's interesting, but the events don't seem to work like you would think they do. It's not clear which properties of a layer you can change in response to an event on that layer and which you need to redraw he layer for. They have examples of stroke width changing on mouseover for example, which work fine, but when you change layer position instead, it doesn't work as well.
