    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.

    [TD="align: center"]VPL's New Year $100 Posting Contest!
    [/TD]
    [/TR]
    [TR]
    [TD]Some of you may be familiar, some of you may not, but here at VPL we love to spice things up a bit. And when is it more of a better time than to start the new year with a $100 posting contest bash?![/TD]
    [/TR]
    [TR]
    [TD]As some of you may be familiar, the posting contest is easy. You post, we pay a purse at the end of the month. No, that doesn't mean everyone wins (sorry, we would LOVE to pay you all though!) - just the person with the highest amount of posts. You can track your progress by looking at the Top Posters of the Month/Year under the Quick Links. Here's the link. If you're having trouble accessing that page (if that page goes to smilies or something irrelevant) try this link: http://www.virtualpetlist.com/misc.php?do=topposters Also remember that if you've won a previous posting contest from us, you cannot win again. We welcome you to join in on the fun and post though! Every single post counts - they're all winners to us <3

    To reiterate....


    1. [*=center]It's new year, let's party! We're giving away $100 to the winner of this contest!
      [*=center]The highest poster at the end of this month (2/2/12) wins!
      [*=center]You can track your progress here
      [*=center]You cannot win if you've won a previous posting contest here at VPL.
      [*=center]You're all winners, even if you don't win. <3 VPL loves every single poster, don't you forget it!
      [*=center]And DO NOT SPAM. We do NOT count SPAM (stupid, pointless, annoying material) ANYWHERE on VPL. If you doubt your content, ASK before posting it. Quality is ALWAYS greater than quantity. Although I am pointing out this rule, all rules continue to apply, so please adhere to each of them. If you'd like to brush up, check the rules here

    IF YOU ARE ENTERING
    Please post below so staff can keep track!
    If you do not post below, you will not be counted towards the contest.
    All you have to do is post "I'm joining in on the fun!" to signify you read the thread, you agree to these rules, and you will be competing against the others. Posting your current post count prior to writing the post also helps.

    [/TD]
    [/TR]
    [TR]
    [TD="align: center"]HELPFUL HINTS TO WIN
    For those who are having a hard time
    finding what to post to, here are some helpful hints:

    • Post on The Playhouse board.
    • Posting threads help a ton! Find a topic to post a new thread on the general discussion board, or any board for that matter.
    • Wish good luck to artists or coders on the marketplace.
    • Spamming wastes your time and our's, don't do it.

    I guess I'll join but I'm not a fan of posting contests.

    Edit: Does it matter how long the post is?

    I know it sounds dodgy but I saw the topic started posting loads, resaw the how you enter bit, figured out oops I have not posted so I posted. If they don't want to count it they don't have to but it was worth a try. Okay...

    What the hell! I am abiding by the rules, I forgot to post okay and I said they can decide wether they count them or not, I'm not fussed, I'm just saying that I did read it and I did start at that post count, no one just goes of and makes like 40 odd posts if they are not in some kind of competition or something.

    Re: VPL's New Years Posting Contest! [1.2.12 - 2.2.12]

    No, because you can say more by saying less. The point is, have a point. XD

    This is a spammy post:
    Nothing else.

    This isn't a spammy post:
    And this is okay in moderation (don't frequently do this over and over--that's when it becomes spam):
    I would recommend using that when nothing you want to say comes to mind, but still want to contribute something to the topic. Obviously don't generalize that as a rule of thumb, I'm just offering advice on how I would use it. XD You might use it in different ways which are OK too.

    We will know if someone is trying to boost their count and don't really care about the content they're posting.

    @Gabby

    Thank you, the one peeve I have with contests like this is the people who post on every thing for the sake of posting. It makes me call in to question if they truly are posting serenely. You will see them all over making comments but adding very little to topics. It most angers me to see them in topics they have never or rarely taken interest in.
