Pocket Town

When I found the Kitty Friends pixel club I also came across this adorable pixel clique - Pocket Town. I would like to give this club some new life, too. The original creator was lani from neonlove.net which is currently an adult dating site but back in 2008 looked like this.

I'm going to quote lani's introduction to Pocket Town:

welcome to pocket town! a cute little link exchange in the form of a city community ^^ Here at pocket town you can create your own mini town linking all your favorite places to visit! Just create your own home/store/building and start building your town! Remember, the only way to grow your town is through linking! spread the word and get friends to join! its a free link and a great way to get hits! just follow the rules below and get started NOW!


Lani had a nice set of rules for Pocket Town so I'm just going to quote them here:

  1. no stealing graphics from pocket town, no matter what town you visit >:O
  2. your building can be no smaller than 20px by 20px and no larger than 60px by 60px!
  3. you may add extras around your town in between buildings but make them small and simple.
  4. the buildings themselves should be a LINK to someone's site! it should always link something!
  5. do not directly link from anywhere! upload and save to your own server.
  6. GET CREATIVE! make your building/home represent YOU and your style ^^

If you make a building, please let me know by either posting to my guestbook or sending me an email!

Need some ideas? A Paused Life is still up (although doesn't appear to be active) and she had quite a large pocket town going!
