Hey, people!
I'm Raichurules, but you can just call me Rai or Raichu if you want. I didn't realize VPL had come back around but caught sight of it while on a Google search for something else.

I haven't been very active in the petsite community for a while, and people might not recognize me from my early days (Powerpets, Verpets, ChibiPaws) since I was very anti-social back then. BUT my old MisticPets users probably remember me. I blossomed on Mistic and was eventually made a Moderator in... gosh 2017 I think. Just before things went downhill. The routine of it all helped me through a lot of big life transitions, and I very much still miss the community there. Even if I was and still am very socially awkward. Made it work anyway!!

I haven't really looked into joining a new petsite since, but I've got more time on my hands now. Who knows? My own petsite development is on hold for the foreseeable future anyway...

Welcome back to the community! @Raichurules

What do you think caused Misticpets to go downhill?
Does your future pet site have a name yet?

Hey, cpvr!
There are a few things I can say lead to Mistic's decline, a few of them being before Zara's (the owner) disappearance. I'll go dump about it over on your other post since I've found it, it might get a little long.

In my notes I've been calling my site XoticPets, but I haven't taken any steps to really secure a domain or anything. It was going to be based on exotic and endangered animals, with all the pets being "spliced together" versions of different animals. If I ever got it up and running, and at least making more than hosting/development costs, the plan was to donate a large portion of whatever revenue it made to conservation organizations. I got some image assets made early on while I was hyperfocused on ideas by the lovely Cass and Silcoon, before they were busy with Solpets.

I love your concept of your pet game and I can’t wait to hear more from you with future developments. Also, what inspired you to create a game with a pets concept like this?

Welcome Raichurules to virtual pet list. :) The axolotl kind of reminds me of the new mob that just got added to minecraft 1.17. It seems like quite the cool concept for a virtual pet site though.
