Important inquiries (deals with adoptables)

Journal Entry: Sun Dec 30, 2012, 12:36 PM






Ok, hi everyone~! owo

After about a week of full on research, i've decided to try and go forward on my idea. owo

The idea? A working adoptables site where you not only get adoptables and make them grow, but are able to interact with them more fully.

:star: However, I have a few questions about your guys' experiance with adoptables sites:

:bulletred: Is there anything you guys are frustrated about when using sites? Like extremely high click amounts to get anywhere, or lack of places to get clicks (Site-bound click exchanges, 'hatcheries', Utopia, Yarold's, etc.)? o3o

:bulletorange: Do you like limited adopts with no limit on how many of a certain age you can have? Or would you rather have limitless adoptables with limits on how many of a certain age you can have (like, stage 1 and 2 stuff). owo

:bulletyellow: How involved do you like to be on these sites? (Lore, quests, special tasks, etc.) owo

:bulletgreen: Anything else? owo

It's gonna be a pretty ambitious project, but we're still barely figuring out what direction we're going to go into, so any input you could give would be absolutely fantastic~ owo

Oh, by the way . . . if you still don't know what an adoptable is or what i'm talking about, here are a few examples. ewe

If it has plenty of things to do, like the quests would be smart. And unlocking new things to do, like when you complete this many quests you unlock a special item you could use for like double XP and a couple other things so the user has to choose which one. Then they would have to complete more quests to unlock another special item. Although I recommend putting it in farther into the site, so that people don't find it hard and annoying.

Have you looked at sites like Mweor?

Mweor isn't for adoptables or adoptions. It is a virtual cat website. I've tried making and selling adopts there: I had to delete the adoptables. >_<;
Don't go to mweor for adoptions.
HOWEVER
It is an awesome site anyways. Fun for once a day for 10 or so minutes. Nice and enjoyable. I recommend it.

Eh.. I don't really agree with all the comments o3o.. I don't think you should make them die... And there should be 2 ways where you can release your adoptables... Back into their natural habitat, or putting them into a adoption center...

Omg ajshtruah those are so many adoptables on your paaaaage Hm.. I dunno o3o I suggest you have a limited amount of adoptables (Like 5 or 6) and have unliminated ages., because there's not many out there. Yeah~ It could be cool with quests o3o.. And the adoptables could of certain abilities too~ Good luck with the project >w<
Omg I wanna watch you and Grin play fallout kljrhshe XD

I dunno, the only frustrating thing is the rarities on pets are confusing to me.

Sounds awesome!
An idea; maybe if people release an adoptable, people might be able to adopt it? I don't know, it's a suggestion :T
Good luck with the project!

One thing that always erked me was the inconsistency of art styles when choosing the different adoptables. There were so many different styles that it made it feel sort of overwhelming. I like neopets because all the pets are in the same style and everything. But I've been to other sites where there's a database for different pets but they all look different. It really takes away from the overall neatness of the site, in my opinion.

Another thing that I find irritating is that some sites are really quest oriented or not at all to the point of being boring. Neopets is good because even if you don't do quests and stuff, it's still a playable game and it's fun. I personally don't like click sites all that much, I find it kind of dull. A site like neopets or a more interactive game like that is far more fun, but I know that's also a lot harder to make! (By the way I'm not like a crazy fan of neopets, it's just good for making examples XD).

One thing that has always irritated me about neopets though is that everything is so gosh darn expensive and to get a lot of money you have to be a dedicated player. Also pets should age and die, and become "angels" so you can still keep them with you, but you can't use them for quests. Or there can be an option to pause their growth if you like a particular age. Breeding would be a really awesome feature because the ability to make hybrids or litters or whatever is just cool xD Then you can have little families and generations and stuff ;w;

Mehh I ramble too much, hope my two cents helped somewhat~

This sound like a GREAT idea o3o
But, I just hate the click stuff in general Dx
If I ruled the world (/a) site, it would just be a "come back every day" thing xP

But yeah...Things would be different if I ruled the world internet xD

I hate things with high-level clicks. You just sit there like, WHEN IS THIS THING EVER GOING TO EVOLVE ASDFGHJKL;

Sounds like a good idea though. owo

I love it! Sounds like it is going to be amazing! I think a lot of places you can go would be cool. Lore, fiction, I really like fantasy! :D

Unlimited! :D

Are you going to have like all sorts of species? Like webkinz? I honestly don't really like webkinz anymore, so if it is not kid based, and a bit action, I would love it!! :D
