    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.

    As you know, Every pet site you visit, has a set of 'rules'.
    I was just wondering, How many of the VPL users have read the above fully?
    Please comment and vote in the poll.

    @Lion All the rules on pet sites all seem to be the same, just worded differently. Some have strict rules in regards to "talking about other pet sites", where others allow their users to have more freedom.

    @cpvr. I know they're pretty much the same, but sometimes people read the rules every time to make sure they don't do anything wrong.
    I don't like to receive warnings, Which is from now on, I will be reading them every time.

    I read all the rules in every pet site as much as I can, like how I'd try to find the rules sticky for every forum I join. The last thing I want to do is get myself in trouble for a silly rule I didn't know about.

    Would you believe that YayDigis had a rule where you're only allowed to role-play as the pets you own? People there would showcase their pets, saying they're up for role-play. Sometimes they'll pretend they're human. What if I had a pet named Anna but I wanted to roleplay as a guy named David? Nope! YayDigis says no to that!

    A totally ridiculous rule, but I should have read about it before.

    I read the rules every time. I need to know what I can talk about and how mature I'm allowed to be, or if it's a "kiddie" site (Neopets and Paladore fit this) where everything needs to be safe for the children.

    I absolutely always read the rules. I do not frequently re-read though as most suggest. I think it's unfair to tell a user it is their responsibility to basically read the rules every hour of the day because they shouldn't have to tell you they were updated. Just my opinion though.

    Omg, I love that thing!! LOL
    We shouldn't change it.. we should turn it into a link that if you click, it brings up our ToS.
    Ohohoh! I could always write up our ToS/rules?

    OH WOW, I'm off topic.

    Sorry! XD

    Yea, I always try to read the rules, but sometimes I know I won't be doing anything else except stalking, so I don't.
    but if I dig it immediately, the rules are the first thing I read.

    Hahaha. I'm welcome anywhere ^.^ I read the rules, the terms, and everything else to make sure I can crack jokes if I can or something. XD;)
    But then again, there's only a few pet sites that I check out - on their forums and such.

    It'd probably be a good idea to read our rules, lol.
    Mainly if you're an active poster and active in the community. Every petsite's regulations are relatively the same, and become flexible around a point, depending at what age group they are aimed at. For example, on Subeta, you can say what orientation your pet or 'character' is on their lookup, but if you even try to say, or even imply, that your pet is 'homosexual' then you'll be warned in an instance.
    This is not to say, however, that Neopets is anything like Subeta.

    I always read the rules no matter what. I read them before I join, after I join, when I'm bored, and I sometimes read the privacy policy too.

    I'm serious. I don't know why I like reading rules, but I do.

    I skim read (quickly) but if I'm posting something I'm not sure about I check the rules and if I'm still unsure I go ahead and ask a mod and check any/all FAQ. I am careful so in most cases I don't have to worry. But if in doubt, get the rules out (my personal rule of thumb).

    That's really the best way to do it, so you don't get banned for some rule that you forgot to read.

    Usually not til I post in the forums, and even then only if I think what I might be posting would be against the rules. (Ie, talking about a sale, other player, other site... things that many petsites have rules about.) Also the couple times I've tried to make a fansite/helper tool for petsites, I read very carefully to make sure I'm not going against anything in the ToS.
