    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.

    (Lions and Tigers are legal to OWN in ontario. AS PETS.)

    I live here in Ontario, and thought this was outrageous.

    Of course you need the necessary paperwork to own the animals, but you can't even own a Pit in Ontario unless it was around before the ban, even with paperwork... however, from what I heard in February, the Pit Bull ban is close to being lifted.

    I really would love to know more about this, but I can't find too much info.

    Here are some articles I stumbled upon, and by stumbled upon- I mean found on Google.

    @uglytrolls - Haha, was that meant to be sarcasm? I can't ever tell on the internet... This is actually in Canada, though!
    @Corleone - DAFUQ indeed.

    Uh... I'm assuming they need a reason to ban tigers and other potential threatening pets before doing so?​

    So you can have a pet Lion? Or Tiger? but not a Pit Bull. As Much as I want a White Lion, I would rather have pit bull bite my face that a lion. o_O

    @Joy - Uh, so a Tiger mauling a 10 year-old at a man's house during a school trip... then eventually killing his owner isn't reason enough? Ok.
    Not to mention Lions and Tigers are wild and exotic animals. They are large, ferocious and proud animals. They cannot be controlled with a leash. They are not domesticated. They are not meant to be pets.
    Dogs are, however, meant to be pets. They are domesticated. They learn from their owners, and actions of dogs reflect such.
    An untrained civilian cannot, with a level-head, raise and tame a wild animal like a tiger or lion.


    @Lion - Yes, you can indeed own a Tiger or Lion. I actually managed to look up a breeder near me.
    With the right papers, they can be in someone's possession almost over night.

    @Bexxy

    Um... I wasn't saying that I agreed with any of this?
    Not entirely sure why you told me all of that when I already know and I was sort of being sarcastic in my post. But ok. xP
    I mean, it's just common sense that they should just ban tigers and lions... so... yeah.​

    @Joy - I'm incredibly sorry that I completely misinterpreted your post.

    "Uh... I'm assuming they need a reason to ban tigers and other potential threatening pets before doing so?"

    It sounded like you implied that the dogs had a reason to be banned, while the Tigers/Lions have not done anything yet to warrant being banned.

    I apologize!

    Exactly my thoughts as well, Lions and tigers are more dangerous than Pitbulls.

    @Bexxy Yes that is messed up. A lot of states are like that too though. Look at the escaped exotic animals thing that happened in Ohio it was the most tragic and disturbing thing I have ever heard or seen. I absolutely thing we should have exotic bans. Pitbulls definitely SHOULDN'T be banned lol... well I guess ohio is onboard now we don't have vicious dog breeds anymore and we have stricter exotic laws.

    As a volunteer in an animal shelter, we often get a lot of pit bulls and boxers or the dogs that might look a bit rougher. But to be honest, these dogs are some of the most gentle and loving that I've seen. Sure they've got a lot of power, but they're just going to randomly use it...? No, it's all in the owner. There's one pit bull in my shelter, Gypsy, that I get in the cage with her, sit down, play tug of war, take anything from her mouth at any time, etc, and she'd be so sweet and loving about it! She came from an abusive past and is a bit weary about other dogs (ones that you would fight with), but otherwise she is a gentle sweetheart and it's a shame that people avoid her because of her breed :c

    Another one, Bella, thought she was a lap dog x'D She was also super affectionate and LOVED to be petted. The only aggression I've ever seen from her is towards squeaky toys!

    A lot of people lack common sense or any real knowledge about dogs :/ I've seen a lot of cases where they are so close to adopting a dog, they hear it bark (not in any way threatening or violent.. just a bark), and they nervously back down. Or they buy a dog and then put it up for adoption the next day because it isn't all behaved (you have to train it -_- ) or it has an accident in the house.

    I hope that Pit ban gets lifted, good luck!

    From reading that article, it doesn't look like the ban has much chance of being lifted, though here'd to hoping. This is the main reason I'd never move back to Ontario, at least not while the ban is active. Kind of makes me shudder to think of what other laws are being passed, when something like this bill was passed. It sends a message to me that the government of said Province is too irrational for me to want to move there.
