    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.

    So me and small team are making a new site, for Gamers.

    It's the gamers version of Facebook. A gamer's social network. Part of the site is the rating for all the games out there. To start with I you, the public, to list some under this thread. This includes all gamers, we are keeping to internet games, not PS2 Games, or any other game system game. Only online games.

    Let's start out with some popular virtual pet games, since that's the audience we're going for when we release.

    Maybe @MichaelCrystal's talking about a "hub" for online game socializing / networking. I'm not sure though. :c

    @Neon

    Yes exactly, you will be able to talk about games, secrets, how to do things, to talk about all games, and I WILL release one little big detail to the site.

    Not saying how often, but OFTEN(At least one going on at any time) Contests for FREE GoCash Pins (We will have different ones, such as Wally and such, different Gaming Cards that you can use for all games, we know GoCash will be a big one.) $5-$100 Pins! The first contests we have on the social network is an "Keep Active" and the more your active on the site the better chance you have at winning the pin. And that's just the icing on the cake. We have lot's more to offer. We are *wanting* to open in a month, late this month/August. :)

    We will NOT be using any images of pets/items/ect, from petsites. Depending on copyright rules we have to look into, we might use the logo of the site, saying the Image is copyrighted to that site, and/or Source: Somesite.com. If that doesn't comply with the rules (I'm pretty sure it does though), I will have a basic form that sites can sign if they wish to let us use their logo (ONLY if it comes down to it) And if they wish not to participate in it, they won't be in our system, and the site won't be supported by our site. So it's a lose-lose if the site rejects. Like I said, i'm pretty sure you don't have too as long as you put Source or something,

    Can anyone refresh my memory on the copyright stuff like that?

    Thanks

    What about site graphics and banners that pet sites have that can be used off-site? I.e. referral graphics? Could those substitute as site "logos"?

    @vplspride
    All that part is just rating the different sites, it's like reviews for the sites, which tons of sites do, all using the logos and many other pictures from the sites. Always saying Source: somesite.com AND most sites in their copyright rules say it's fine as long as you use source: theirsite.com.

    It's beneficial for two reasons. One, the rating will make other players that are on the social network to play that game too! So they get more players too! The free gifts help the site, because there is a chance that the user will spend it on that site.
    @Neon
    In my opinion, they could on the site, or we could always just make a logo for the site.



    Anyone else have any advice about the images (logos)?

    Okay, well I have a better idea for it, lol Don't worry I know what im doing isn't affecting copyrighting laws. :) Plus using logos isn't original. What I'm doing now is original :) This isn't even 5% of the site, it's a sub-section, just to show what users think of each site, it's just the ratings. :)

    @vplspride
    I have created serveral sites before so I know what i'm doing as far as being original and creative. That being what it is, I can't release any more details about the site, because well that would spoil the whole surprise and everything for the site.

    And you really misunderstood what i said. Users wouldn't pay. We would hold a sweepstake like contest on the site for the users, and being active will be one of them, you wouldn't pay anything. We would pay you. The sweepstakes are like 5-100$ pins for gocash for Games! I can't tell you much more than that, :)

    So I cannot really say what it is at the moment, but you will see when released.

    Let's please stay on topic though, :)

    ~Anymore game names?

    @vplspride lol Okay, I was just saying, that I thank you for that copyright information, but I wanted to get back to what the post was really about. :) lol And most sites are free, and as far as it stands right now all my sites will be free, (basic user stuff). I attend to keep it free since it's not really a game, it's simply a social network. :)

    Thanks for your help, also I know of that list, it just was I wanted the ones that alot of the people like, I'm looking for all-time fav's which I thought I could get by having users tell me their personal favorite games, :)

    Hmm sounds interesting. Just a question, though. These sweepstakes, contests or whatever it's called, will they be for everyone around the world? Or just for people in the US? (And I have no idea what the GoCash is...)

    My favorite game is Neopets. I know a lot of people hate it, but I love it. :p What about Nick game cards for a contest prize?

    I might make it Gocash, Nick cards, I might just give a list of cards that we support, and then say "$5 Game Card, Your Choice of Card", and it will be internationally, you will recieve the pin both by email & by PM on the site ;)
