    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.

    Well, it looks we're currently outgrowing our current VPS, which means, we need to get a stronger VPS, to help us out. I haven't ordered the new server quite yet, but I'll be doing that soon - which means, once we start the transferring progress, VPL will have a "down message" for the forums, which means, you won't be able to browse the forums, messages, or anything because the whole forum will be offline.

    This is also the main reason why the site is "hiccuping" and having "connection times out", as well as lag problems.
    We've upgraded to a new VPS, its a lot more powerful than our old one.

    No downtime at all, we're now on the new server.

    Re: Server move coming soon

    Hopefully before the weekend - so it might be tomorrow, but we'll see how this server performs in the next day, to see if upgrading is our best option.

    Re: Server move coming soon

    You're welcome, and I do too - which is why I'm making sure the Host can handle everything - in regards to changing our DNS settings, so the downtime isn't so long.

    So I'll be sure to that as well.

    I'm looking forward to the server move, I've been lagging a bit the past few days. so this will boost my connection a bit.

    Re: Server move coming soon

    @cpvr My bad. :p For some reason the skin on the iPad was all wonky today. I think it was the internet I was using though.. Either way, I couldn't see it because of it. Sorry! :)

    Re: Server move coming soon

    I hope it won't take too long. I tend to miss my buddies easily and I might start to bite my nails again..

    So yeah, I'll miss you guys once the server move begins!! D':

    Re: Server move coming soon

    @vanillaeclairvanillaeclair Yeah, same here. I think I am going to go through VPL withdrawals. D: At least we could hit the ground running when we get back with lightning fast speeds. It'll really peak our activity, I think.
