  1. So you have dreams of starting your own Pet Site, but have no experience with programming whatsoever, this thread is going to walk through a lot of things that you need to know, and what you need to look for from your developer (and in your code base), to ensure that you are paying for things that really matter. Please Note: This is not an exhaustive list, this is meant to be a jumping off point to help improve your overall familiarity with the process of developing code. Executive Summary As a site owner, it is your responsibility to know at least at a cursory glance how it wo

  3. I was inspired by @kami's thread where they gave away free item artwork. So I figured I'd give away some of my own item artwork as well? Here's a link to the folder: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B5ALeHZVkszrRWRCNkFJelVXQUU Some examples attached for a quick preview. These are item artworks I originally drew myself for the game I'm working on, Saylua. I mostly did them for art practice and to try to figure out our item artwork style though haha, so I never really had a plan for these items! And they're kind of generic anyways, so I figured maybe someone w

  4. Hello! I'm Skellri! I'm a digital illustrator pursuing a path in creature design! I love fantastical creatures ranging from commonly known mythological beasts, to creatures from Star Wars and Monster Hunter. I also absolutely enamoured by equines and dinosaurs/other paleo creatures! Currently I have a huge interest in the ARPG scene on deviantart, so I've spent a bit of time participating in that! I am relatively familiar with the pet site scene, I've done work for Sylestia, Cybura, Folk of Lore, Faenaria, and helped with assets for other projects here and there as well. I would lo

  9. I think there's a big difference between covering big site news that effect many (such as this) and doing a tabloid-esque "he said she said" covering of a situation. One is true journalism while the other aims to smear a specific person or peoples. I think as long as news covers the game as a whole rather than people and is not painted with bias or unfairly then all information lawfully obtained is free game. If that thread were titled "Staff lie to FelisFire!" and focused only on smearing staff members and not the wider scope of the situation, then I'd say it's inappropriate. A good news arti

  10. I have been involved with making art for pet sites since I was in high school, and I'm 27 years old now. IRL, even with a college degree in art, I'm finding it difficult to find any kind of job that helps me to feel happy and makes use of my passion. It has been difficult, and I worked several boring jobs for five years. I was recently let go from my last job of 1.5 years (not for a bad reason) and I decided to come back here after all these years. I have been met with nothing but positivity, wonderful people, and WORK! I just wanted to say THANK YOU to you guys, and to TGL, for givi

  13. I don't believe I made my message clear enough... this is far more than my initial seeking justice for being demotion without compensation. As it has started as that, there has been an extreme turn of events that followed a previous issue shown above as well... This is not about users complaining about lack of care for a site any further, this is not about lack of pay... This is about predatory behavior and leaving a warning due to the fact this is a Children based website... This is a dangerous situation. I am not seeking to stoke any flame or in your words "perpetuating the drama" as I

  15. Discord | Twitter | Facebook | Tumblr It is my utmost pleasure to announce Figment. 2019 Whimsical and light, Figment - a petsite in development – strives to evoke the special nostalgia you feel while reminiscing of classic Neopets; in a time where imaginative concepts were married with complex and emotional storytelling. Journey to the land of Fanterra, where humans, pets, and mystical creatures live in harmony. The humans of Fanterra – aliens to this vibrant community of Dragons, Fae, and other mythical animals – have brought from Earth their canine and feline comp

  17. Been working on various things, but after a couple years, was picked up again for some work on a rather graphicless game at the moment. I did some art for it those couple years back, but not till recently did this game pick back up and here I am. Here are some most recently completed fish items for this hero themed game.

  20. Update 12/7/2017: This diatribe is intended for developers using frameworks like Laravel, Rails, Symfony, etc. TL;DR See list at end of post for features that probably aren't worth the effort to write yourself Introduction When starting a new project, there's a temptation to write everything yourself, from user registration to forums. Don't. You don't need to reinvent the wheel when there are already hundreds of implementations out there. Every hour you spend developing a common feature is an hour you are not developing the core of your game, e.g. breeding or pet customization;

  25. Hey guys! I'm new to this so please excuse it being quite a mess! I am in a very confused and concerned mentality at this time due to this being quite sudden and without warning or even communication. For over a year, as of August 10th, I have been working for Verpets.com as an Official Artist and... while the work was slow, low paying, and communication was very poor, I enjoyed the job. I enjoyed speaking to the other artists there and get to be a big part of what happens behind the scenes. As someone who has visited and partook in the site since late 2009, being able to give back was

  27. Just wanted to personally vouch for Ibbit, who has been working with me for a few months now on a project that's very demanding. Yet she has been 100% reliable, timely and has poured an abundance of effort into every commission. On top of that, she's very nice to work with. I'm a very satisfied customer!

  28. I was a member of VPL, its how i found Solpets and now i've been an artist for them for a couple years. i was also able to find other freelance jobs from their site. with that said i have no interest in going back to VPL. how the site went down and was promised to come back up but never did kinda turned me off from them. I had contacts from people who i now have no way of knowing because the site went down with no warning. I found TGL on my own, after VPL went down i search for pet site forums and it came up. I've also have suggest TGL to others as well because i feel its better

  29. Thank you everyone for your patience. Registration is now open! Click here to go to the site. Some notes: - The game is in early alpha! Several features may be missing or incomplete - Battles and trading are not yet in the game, those are coming soon - Not many quests are available at the moment - Items are still wonky and don't do anything. Will fix soon! If you encounter any bugs on the site, please make a report on our forum! It's much easier to keep track of them there than in the discord.

  30. I no longer work with IcePets as of fairly recently, but I want to publicly say this: The team working with IcePets is a group of some of the most dedicated, well-functioning, and knowledgeable people I have ever worked with on a project. There are people on this team who have been running the day-to-day operations of the IcePets website for multiple years and know how the game and community ticks. They are equally known by the community and they know how to keep the site going. Whoever purchases IcePets obviously gains the ability to do what they want with the hiring and firing portio

  31. Ok, I finally have some news! I have finalized what will be in Alpha Phase 1. It's a bit less than what's on the trello, but I decided to roll out updates for Phase 1 after opening since I figured that if I continued to hold out until everything was in there, it won't reach you guys for a very long time (as you've seen lol) - Exploration system, each region will only have 5 random events to being with and 2 animals to hunt (deer and hares) - Not all npc personalities will have flavor texts when interacting - PMs and ally system (basically a friend list) - Most likely no tra

  32. Smallix is a pretty action packed and so we felt it necessary to conceptualize character behavior. Its also giving us a better feel for what we want for our splash screens for the various releases we plan to have in the future. This is the ideal complete evolution chain of a smallix creature. Just by looking at it, you can quickly tell that we were inspired by pokemon and digimon, however, this is not a pet battling game. Our team has been prototyping a LOT and me showing you everything we have would only spoil the fun for you guys but we are slowly narrowing and refining the

  34. Here are some adoptables we sold recently!! We're doing a fun little thing where we have a certain theme for these new adopt sets, which we're calling series 1. The first was the sweets set, and the second recent one was the plants set. For these we have 1 taller bipedal design, 1 quadruped design, and 1 squishy bipedal design. We've also thrown in some pets for goals during the auction, so those have been fun to come up with as well!!

  35. I've been working on a couple different things recently. The first is a full illustration for a client of a banner like image with their critter working in a forge and the second is a set of items for a different client for their game. Lots of work, but so far thinking it's turning out quite well thus far :3

  37. Hello everyone, Since the beginning of this communities existence I have been honest and open to every members opinion, popular or not. I generally will not censor anyone posts unless it is extreme and is needed. I believe in the concepts of an open community where ideas, opinions, and feelings are openly expressed without fear of reprisal or attacks. These have been the guiding principals that I have felt are beneficial and help build a greater sense of community. I have noticed some members who have been pushing the bounds of what is acceptable. Comments that are not constructive n

  39. Hey, ya'll. I debated joining this discussion, but decided to pop in and lend my two cents. Hopefully you don't mind my bumping up an old thread. I never *really* disappeared from this community; I've silently watched from afar for a few years. I was sad when VPL went down, but I'm still in contact with some kind folks from the old days. I hid from the community for about three years because of the outlash against me; folks were understandably upset, but some of the feedback was hostile and a few individuals even went to my personal social media pages and stalked and harassed me ther

  42. Trello is a really amazing project management program that is free to use and works seamlessly across most platforms (iOS, Android, all modern browsers). It works with multiple people in teams and allows you to filter to the tasks that are important to you. The best part is that it is super flexible - it could be used for managing tasks in your daily life, such as chores or shopping lists, or can be used for multi-tiered development. There are 3 main terminologies that are used for using Trello. They are Boards, Lists and Cards. Boards Once you have created your Trello Account you will b

It can also be seen at http://leporidae.org/howtodraw SECTION #1: BASIC SHAPES What This Guide is For Rabbits are difficult for a lot of people to draw. Not only are they fuzzy and squishy, but they can change shape when they sit, stretch, or jump. A rabbit's anatomy can defined in one moment, then utterly shapeless and blob-like in another. There are also many misconceptions about how rabbits look and how they're depicted in illustrations and media—everything fro

  47. Sitemaps help search engines index pages of your site. It’s a very nice addition to any SEO practice! Every sitemap has the same structure to it, and I’d suggest including both pages and images. Sitemap Set-Up Create an empty XML file (most people call it sitemap.xml) and insert the following. Top Wrapper <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <urlset xmlns="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9"> Bottom Wrapper </urlset> Every page will then have it’s own code within those tags. Example page: <url> <loc>https://ohudog
