    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.

    Is anyone else having trouble with mara? I can't get on it?

    Even if you don't play it can you go here;

    http://www.marapets.com

    And see if it loads? ;-;

    I think it's another server crash. Hopefully it should be back up soon.

    I was on it working in my attic when it went down. I thought it was my server and discovered that it is completely down. Came here to see if anyone else was having trouble. Ian was on yesterday, but not today I don't think. Goodness knows when it will be up again.

    Over the many years, this has happened. Typically it is during advent calendar time. And it has been out for several days. So, don't plan on it being up that fast. Possibly check them on facebook to see if Ian has mentioned anything.

    Hmmm, didn't see anything about free gift, but haven't checked their facebook page either. Wonder if Ian even knows it is down. Since he was on yesterday, he may not be around today. I guess we are in for a Marapets Dry Spell.

    It is times like this I look for a suitable substitute.

    Thanks everyone!
    @victorian_artist Yeah, longest I've seen is 7-8 days :|

    Who knows, @cpvr, we might find a new layout or we might just find out it was just servers playing up Dx

    Yeah I guess it was about a week or so and I believe that was during Advent Calendar because we wanted to get all the goodies as I recall. The way this went down, I am thinking this is going to be long one. Remember "delayed" the minipet? I think we got that from the delay of one outage or another. It is just part of the way Marapets runs. And of course, they could have server overloads with the olympics being there et all. But I am not sure his servers are in London.

    I am in now, haven't browsed around. Had to log out of browser and back in again. :th_smiley-dance018::smiley-dance004:


    Also, it seems to be much faster. Maybe they did something. Glad it is up. So far, no server errors ... yet! Good luck all!

    If they did something, then it was more than likely a server upgrade or some optimization going on in the backend:Dance2:

    Probably! Makes sense. They never let us know they are going down for anything. But I am happy its up. I hope Ian gets his stuff together and takes care of it.
