  1. Virtual Pets

    Welcome to the Virtual Pet list forum!

    We're a Virtual Pets and Sim Games Community. We have a lot of Virtual Pet Sites Owners and Sim Games Owners that frequently visit, along with Artists, Writers and Programmers that come here looking for work and games to work for. Our Artists sell art in our Art Marketplace and Programmers are allowed to sell scripts in the Programming Marketplace. We've been opened since 2011 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 has a lot of Sim Games listed as well. You are more than welcome to check out our directory of sites and find a new game to play. If you're still curious about a game to play, you can check out some of our Game Reviews and Interviews with Coders, Artists, Writers and Game Owners of the industry.

    Firstly, please pardon our digital dust. VPL is still, at the time of this writing, a bit in the works of being in full operating mode, as you can probably see.

    Secondly, we're sorry to have left you all for so long! We loved VPL as much as anybody, and it wasn't pleasant for us to see its presence transformed to a void. That was not a preferred situation, but reality doesn't always bend to the whims of desires. We've restructured how we handle things in a greater effort to assure that such a scenario doesn't happen in the future.

    Thirdly, welcome back, or welcome for the very first time! Whether you've been with us for years or just happened to find us today, we're happy to have you here all the same.

    And finally, and perhaps a bit more personally, its just really nice to be back. VPL has never been and will never be perfect. It is run by imperfect humans making imperfect efforts to get as close to perfection as they are able. But even though it may be flawed, it has still been a very pleasant community. VPL has largely managed to allow for open dialogue without the need to use bans or suspensions to maintain the status quo, and yet has maintained a fully operational community regardless. The community isn't perfect either, of course. It is likewise composed universally of imperfect humans. But just as I and others try our best to make the VPL experience as great as we can, it is readily visible to any observer that the vast majority of those amongst the pet site community operate in the same good intentions. Its a large part of what draws me to the community, and I suspect that to be true for many others as well.

    So here's my pledge: So long as there remain people wanting a friendly and open community, I will endeavor to provide it to them as best as I am able. It's a pledge I'm sure any other VPL staff member would agree with.

    There you have it. Our sincerest apology, our welcome and a mission statement. I can only hope you all like VPL as much as we like operating it for you.

    Wow, that's pretty awesome C:
    I just got the idea to type in "VPL" to see what would happen and what do you know, the site is back! Pretty funny I found it today too XD
    I had really lost hope that VPL would ever come back

    What, us vanish permanently?

    Seriously though, I'm glad that you others are already noticing the return. Hopefully you'll enjoy your time here and even more people will return with time, along with new faces as well.

    Re: Voice 1: Greetings, once more.

    A lot of people were hoping you guys wouldn't come back, lol
    Though here you guys are!
    Not sure if I am happy or upset, but I am nervous.. I will be honest.
    What made you guys change your mind?
    And what with your original downfall, it sparked many other VP forums to come into existence, seems like now you just have more competition.
    Though let's try not to make the same mistakes in the past, shall we?

    I was just looking for this site a couple of days ago and couldn't find any news about it. It was the first virtual pet community I was a part of, so I for one am glad it is back online! ^.^

    We never intended for the site to go down, or stay down.

    Re: Voice 1: Greetings, once more.

    I was quite sad when I realized VPL had disappeared. Nice to know we weren't abandoned forever! :p Haha.

    Hopefully I'll be making some art soon to see if there's any interest.

    I'll admit that even though I was just a lurker I was sad to see this place go. I'm glad it's back (and that I'm not lurking anymore)

    I knew you guys would come back! Lurking in other VP forums don't feel the same as stalking threads and posting here on good ol' VPL. <3
