  2. 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

  3. 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

  5. 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!

  6. 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

  7. 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

  8. INTRODUCING PEREIA Pereia is a new pet RPG in development with a huge focus on exploration. You were explore the world completing quests while looking for and battling various species of Perí, which are the native creatures to Pereia. If you find yourself in a battle with a wild Perí you'll have two options. You can either capture the Perí and raise it as your own or you complete the battle while gaining experience for your active Perí to get one step closer to evolution! Most Perí will have two to three evolution stages so your hard fought battles will eventually pay off!

  10. So you’re ready to start thinking about your own game, huh? The first thing you’ll want to do is figure out what it’s about, right? This is the first post in a series that will go into a bit more detail about how you can plan out your dream game. What type of game is it? Are you thinking that the game will be hyper realistic, fantasy, or a mixture? Will there be pets? Do you care for pets? Do pets have human characteristics? There are generally two types of games in our little corner of the industry, although some games could fall into a grey area. Pet sites Pet sites

Carl decides if a new feature gets created and Carl decides if things just completely stop. Carl is essentially the head of the site. According to them they were going to buy Ver from Joe because Joe wants nothing to do with it. Nobody has seen Joe for years. They came back briefly to appoint two new admin who came with a lot of promises and then left. I know it sounds like a bunch of whinging users who dont understand that coding and art takes time and money, but I pr

  13. Hiya!~ I’m a digital character and environment artist hoping to find some work doing what I love, creating creatures and the worlds around them! I’m very interested in the art of world building and take a lot of inspiration from worlds like Avatar the Last Airbender, Pokemon, and Zootopia. I enjoy streaming and entertaining others with my art! I have a lot of experience doing freelance and commission work and have worked in the toy industry in the past. As far as pet sites, I had a skin chosen for the Flameforge Festival on Flight Rising (idk if that's worth bragging about but hey,

  15. Before You Read If you’re planning a game, make sure to read Planning Your Game Part 1: How to get started. If you know how to program and are planning a game, you have applause from this corner. Being able to do things yourself is the most efficient and time-saving route you can take. If you don’t know how to program, I strongly encourage you to learn. Even if you don’t learn to the level that you need to build a game, it will help you better communicate with your programmer, understand their time requirements, and help both of you not be as stressed in your relationship. If you pl

  16. Hey guys, just wanted to poke in and let you all know I purchased Novilar, and have some exciting new changes that I want to make in the not too distant future. I'm currently having a bit of the backstage stuff worked on to make front-of-house management a little more easy for me, seeing as how I'm not a coder, and am trying to get some of the more buggy parts of the game fixed. Hope to see you guys around! Say hi in the discord or something

  17. I've been doing art for P3Games for a few years now and love it! The art team & staff are always friendly, either for hanging out or hashing out new ideas for the game. It's a laid back environment to work in and workloads are never unreasonable or overly demanding. Projects are fun to work on, in part because you get to be an active voice in what the theme will be, and what pieces you will be working on. It's a cat sim, but there's tons of other things, from backgrounds, apparel to animal companions of all shapes and sizes, and even lots of cute collectables to be made! Also very

  19. I don't and haven't seen a lot of trading going on. I started out as an artist and learned PHP/MySQL, JS, AJAX, etc. because I couldn't afford to commission someone for it or the commissions fell through. From my experience, coders are harder to commission. You have to worry about security and how their work will affect you in the longrun. Buying some art here and there is a lot easier, though, and usually less investment.

  20. I can't really add much to this other than to say that the exact same thing happened to me when I quit years and years ago, I didn't get paid and I'd put money on it that you won't either. Edited because I'm cynical as all hell, but I hope you can at least get what you are owed.

  21. Pereia Art Update Hello everyone! Hope you're all staying healthy during this pandemic. I've finally gone back to my full time job so development has been a little slow but the artists I've been working with have been doing an awesome job so I wanted to give a little art update and show off some of the newest creatures for Pereia. So far we have 20 unique pets and we have 100 unique items! The goal is to have ~ 50 unique pets before we consider opening for an alpha stage so we're close to being halfway there art wise.

He is very professional, knowledgeable, and overall great to work with. His communication is top notch. He isn't afraid to ask questions to better understand what you need out of a feature. You won't go wrong with this fella. I highly recommend! Projects I've had Indy work on include: • Updating PHP version (oh we were so behind) and fixing error codes as a result of this update. • Fully functional bank feature with savings accounts, daily interest payouts, C

  32. Hi, folks! We are looking for a graphic designer to join our team at Figment. Learn about us on Twitter and join our Discord! This will be an ongoing role with intermittent work. (Note: the first month of work will be heavier because of the backlog, but after that it'll slow down a little.) The overwhelming majority of design work needed is to create 800x800 social media graphics. Other things you might work on include graphics for our Patreon, game resource guides, 300x300 headers, etc. Vector graphics experience preferred. We're focused on a brand image that is whimsical

  36. I think you hit the nail on the head for the main issue. They're boring. I'm not sure how well people understand the importance of having a dedicated social media manager versus an RSS reader. Things I would love to see if I was into a pet game on their socials: sneak peeks/previews, jokes or in-game references, mentions of the community, showcasing special features/pets/items, Q&A sessions, etc. Keeping the news updates is fine, but have some more variety in between. I think looking at bigger media corporations will help give ideas over 'best practices'. Advice I've heard,

  37. Back when I was working on Seripets between 2009 an 2014 I often found people through mutual friends, virtual pet site forums and DeviantArt. This applies to admins, moderators, programmers, artists and writers. It's an all encompassing way of finding people. Currently I don't have an active team as Seripets is in hiatus and thus not in development just now. But if I were to get a new team arranged (with some of my original members) I'd probably have a good percentage of people I class as friends/close friends hired as I'd trust them a lot more than people I don't know. I was rather nai

Currently there are 8 to find, with many more planned! I won't tell you how you acquire them, so play around and discover them all. A big thank you to Aaron for this update. This marks his first contribution as a programmer to the site and the first code update not done by me. Hope to have more in the future.

  40. @SilverBrick Let the staff determine what is and isn't allowed. You have already voiced your opinion and we heard in other platforms as well. You cannot tell other members of the community to do. Backseat moderating is currently not a rule either, but it is very frowned upon in all forum communities. We are still a new team and working on our new plans/guidelines to be released soon. It should help make things more clear for these types of situations and others in the future. --- All this being said, we understand there are a LOT of heated feelings (either opposed or for) the

He got pretty mad at me and to this day I don't really understand why. It was out of the blue. I don't think anyone's out to trash him here. If he wants to reach out and help the community or give us a reason to trust him again, he can.

  42. Whew, a lot of response in this thread! I'd like to point out my response is based purely as a past member of VPL. I used to primarily lurk there since it felt like most posts were aimed in a negative fashion and the place loved drama. But it still had access to potentially good info so I would read up on it from time to time. Watching the updates on Facebook about whether the site would stay up or go down was mind boggling, especially with promises of it staying for it to just poof (and the reasons given publicly made no sense). It took me a really long time to even join TGL out of

We view him as a good guy and in my case a friend considering I worked alongside him for well over 5 years. I know what went on prior to Virtual Pet List going down as well as what went on during it's time down for at least a year after it, although I'm not at liberty to divulge information as it'

  48. 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.
