    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.

    D Stable has been sold to one of @Ardy 's friends. Glad to hear its not just sitting.



    ***UPDATE***

    I am strictly after a buyer now, and would like approx $2,500...
    There are 743 Items
    There are Approx 15 Different pets with roughly 17 different colours each.
    Several highly detailed map images are also on the site...
    I'll let you keep the site on my server for up to a year (unless discussed otherwise)
    The site is currently generating a small amount (approx $50 per month) even without having updated the site in the last 6 - 12 months...

    Hi guys, been a while since I've been around here...

    Basically, we have a great site, with heaps of great art work, a great concept behind it, but now myself and my other coder lack the time needed for the site...



    check it out if you havent heard of it before.


    What we are after:

    *Either a straight up sale - You get all the coding and images and the rights to the images and then do what you like with them.

    *Dedicated manager - Someone who is able to take control of the site, get new new staff, manage what they need to do, and get the ball rolling again, they would get a percentage of the profit made from the site...

    If you choose to purchase the site, you also have the option to continue hosting it where I am, to save juggling it around.


    Please contact me if you are interested in making me an offer on the site.

    (If wishing to manage the site, you must be over 18 years old.)

    Well, its good for potential buyers, they're looking for that information, so it would be nice to post screenshots of it? So an upcoming buyer knows what type of site they're getting into?

    If someone applied for manager, would they get a budget? Or would they use own money/find volunteer staff, are current staff paid, or volunteer?

    Site income is very small guys. As ive mentioned to everyone, ive been extremely busy the last 6 - 12 months, so the site has hardly had an updates or anything... yet still maintains active players....

    Site is in a position that it wouldn't take a great deal of work to start to generate some decent revenue.

    Please let me know if anyone is after more details.

    Thanks

    and price is negotiable. Especially seeing I have a few guidelines I would like followed after a successful sale. e.g. existing accounts not-removed, lifetime premium members keep their bonuses etc....

    yeah we do have a cash shop, and premium account upgrades - but as you can imagine, when the site hasnt had any new pets, items or features added for a year, people are a lil hesitant to spend money.

    That being said, there is still a small amount coming through, but it fluctuates so much it's hard to give details on.
