    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.

  2. Guest,


    Over the next few days there may be some slight changes to VPL. If you see something going on don't be alarmed we most likely know about it! If you have any troubles please contact Evolution.

    Happy Holidays

    Heh, I'm tempted to change my status into Artist, but I've never worked for any petsites before. That and I don't know how to send or receive money yet (can't get a paypal until I graduate, dad says).

    I can't wait though.

    So people can just change without being tested first?
    Or do they get tested?

    Because this means that if they don't get tested then there could be people selling art they don't own and make it look like they are an artist...

    Or someone could be a terrible programmer and give people rotten code o-o

    I agree, there should be some form of application/approval system.

    You guys are right, maybe making a usergroup private? I just join the programmer group, but that's because I'm a real programmer :p Nice update!

    They already have the font color for artists. I think this is a good move, and really, if someone doesn't fit in one of the groups; we can always remove them from the group.

    @cpvrcpvr, but there is no way to tell if someone is an approved seller ?

    @SaintSaint maybe not but if there is anything dodgy with them someone will point it out and it'd end up probably them being banned or removed from the group

    Yes you could always remove them later if something comes up but, and correct me if I'm wrong, wouldn't the damage already be done?

    That's what I was thinking. The description of the groups say "Users who belong to this group are trusted traders of the marketplace." and "Users who belong to this group are trusted programmers". How would you know they are trusted if anyone can just join the group?

    Exactly, you can't just join the forum and say your an artist.
    There has to be some acceptance thing, I'm willing to create something up for the artist one..

    If you join these groups you will need to be approved by a Moderator.

    Artists are approved by: Martyn and Joy
    Programmers are approved by: Lewis

    It can also be seen when trying to join these groups. :)
