I'm not sure if this is allowed, but I hope it is.

Why was there no mention in the announcements forum of a CEO change? I just learned about it today, but found out it happened in December. Shouldn't the community be notified of such an important change?

In all honesty, I can see information like this being important to the office and partner people, but not really the community people. Would it be nice to know? I think it would be nice to know, but I wouldn't consider it to be information that I would expect to be notified about.

It would be like a Walmart store having a change of a GM or someone like that. Not really something that needs to be brought to the consumer attention, but most certainly to the staff that work there.

It's important to me, and apparently the change was important to several other people that I talked too, which is why I made this thread.

According to IMVU's Press Releases, IMVU didn't even think it was important enough to publish in the business trades or release a statement to the press.

My guess is that Brett sneaked away as he was embarrassed by the direction this site is taking and ashamed of it's treatment of it's users.

I don't think there is any of the original team left now, just a bunch of newbies who want to turn imvu into a phone app for kiddies.

Where I bolded...

It does seem to be going into that direction. However sadly, if that's the case the current and new staff of IMVU will be shooting themselves in the foot. This site was built on 3D avatars and I have seen how the avatars look in Next...

Flat 2D Paper cutouts!

That is not what any of us signed for up when we joined IMVU. It's as I pointed out in "Redirecting Photostream to Feed" Thread in the Announcements Forum...

Snapchat, Instagram and Facebook are not IMVU's competition.

With the lack of response from Brett about a feature that is harmful for many users, and he was contacted privately and respectfully by users, I honestly felt his treatment toward the community was right down there in the pool of *** with imvu's. They don't care.

I would have thought that a multi-million dollar company (imvu still is, right?) would have made a public announcement about CEO changes. I thought most of them did. But ... I could be wrong. Wouldn't be the first time.

Valid question. Maybe he'll introduce himself eventually maybe not.

Thank you for starting this thread Rose hun, I think it's VERY important too as you already know, & I think it's very shady that this was not mentioned anywhere, & that WE had to stumble across & investigate the legitimacy of this info ourselves, it's very suspicious imo, like what is IMVU trying to hide, hmmm, like, maybe why all these very poor decisions have been being made since December... hmmmmmmmmmmmm, the silence has been golden hasn't it... Rolling Eyes =^.^=

I'm surprised no one from staff has even bothered to comment and explain themselves to us.

There is also a very recent Youtube interview video of Brett if you are interested. He has it posted on his twitter.
