    Virtual Pets

    Welcome to the Virtual Pet list forum!
    We're a virtual pets and sim games community and we're the largest forum in our industry. We have a lot of virtual pet sites' owners and sim game owners that are quite active 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've been opened since 2011, however, we've owned our domain name since 2004 and since then we've grown and expanded quite nicely. What are you waiting for, why don't you join today?

    Our list of virtual pet sites and directory of sim games have a lot of games listed that you can try out and possibly enjoy. If you're still curious about a game to play, you can 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 done work in this industry as a whole.

    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.

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

    @Saint 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..

    There is a way that you can be approved by a member of staff, I will bring it up with the staff. :)

    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. :)
