  1. every time i remember this site its like 20 years later, everyone's aged, im no wiser

  2. dude if you ever do and you need friends, hit me up on Gilgamesh server!! I do end game raiding with lots of really skilled people, but I'm also in an fc for casuals, so I love helping out wherever! There's also lots of returner status stuff you can get now Or if you didn't get far in the beginning, just playing the game on trial lets you get to lvl 35 now, and access to the Palace of the Dead that lets you try all the classes to 60!! I have a PC actually but I play with my ps4 controller, but I know so many good players also on PS4! O:
  3. The status quo of these sorts of sites have shifted. The pets used to be front and center, jump through x hoops to get this pet, grats you got it, now show it off. Now, economies in these games are more robust, the audiences of these games have matured and that plays in part of why pets are not the centerpiece of these sites anymore. This is why adoptables are so popular now--these people that stopped getting their 'pretty pet' fix have carved their own space while filling their own niche on dA/FurAffinity/etc. And we are left with communities that may have started there for the pets, but stayed for the people and gameplay.
  4. Anyone play XIV? This game is literally the reason why I stopped playing pet sites. It's an mmorpg, but damn if it isn't a delicious love letter to the Final Fantasy franchise. Also available on PS4! (i sound like an ad, look at me, im mr meeseeks)
  5. that's gonna be harder to convince my boss about, since i gotta sniff that printer ink every day
  6. @Syntax there is a significant lack of shitposting on this forum and i intend to change that q u i c k l y
  7. yeah i've got the same problem, drawing is hard for me especially since i work a 9-5 job now and i'm already at a desk/computer all day motivation is basically zero for drawing when i get home AND NOW I GET TO PROCRASTINATE AT WORK
  8. The thing about Flight Rising is that it would've been so much better as a mobile-ready game. It's long breeding times lends itself to the same long "stamina" waiting games as a lot of phone/tablet games, and it's (here I am complaining about user experience again) early 2000's esque forum and PM system was a big turn off for me. The art is fantastic, and it attracts similarly many fantastic artists to the scene, and (from what I remember when I last played) they're fair and creative with giving people the option to customize dragons with skins. But this is where the problem starts (and the problem that many pet sites have in common)--the community and even economy as a whole is now revolving around the art scene. And if you're not in the art community or able to penetrate it somehow, you're locked out of a major amount of circulation of the game. FR tries to mitigate this well by promoting the Flights rivalry, making sure that people are interested in the more complex battle system, but it doesn't have the intense drive and power of selling art. I don't have the perfect solution for that, it's a difficult problem.
  9. Here's my case for it: my favourite pet site, bar none, was Verpets. At the height of it, it got a new layout, amazing new site features, a new layout, amazing artists with amazing pet colour aesthetics and grade-A community. That grade A community was made in part by a very public and widely used shoutbox that was coded for the site itself, with user integration and multiple 'rooms' people could switch to for a more private experience. New users come in and introduce themselves immediately, and get to know the regulars right off the bat. The regulars have a place to perpetuate themselves without the loading and frankly clunky interface of forums (most pet site forums are awful, this one is quite good but still too many clicks to get yourself in the right category just to talk). Forums are a good place for discussion, and more importantly, paper trails for discussion, but sometimes all people want to do is jump right in without worry. Sometimes that's all they have time for, like many users I see on Subeta that will hop on the shoutbox vs the very slow moving forums on there. It's a changing landscape and the faster people get responses and reactions, the more receptive they'll be to staying, in my opinion.
  10. Good!! My life basically belongs to FFXIV now sooooo I've not had much time to play petsites, but I miss drawing lots!
