    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.

    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.

    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! ^.^

    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

    You made me lurk. You promised me lotsa goodies didn't you? :p Just kidding. I used to read the forums here. But lately I just can't seems to be on forums much. Needs too much time...
