Lately i getting annoyed by the way new ppl act n be rude. Don't bother t read room info, profile cards n just being nice and polite. I remember that in the past you had to go trough some kind of "training" room first to be able to get to unlock the chat room feature.

Is it an idea to make such a training room that u have to do and while in that room you can earn bonus credits for each stage? Like 100 credits for each item like reading room info, checking profile card, how to lower kbs, how to stay nice n polite and so on. Just the basic things.

It would save a lot of inconvenience for other visitors, it would save a lot of time booting and blocking ppl cos they new n don't know how to behave and don't take advice from experienced users and start being rude, offensive and when they get booted cos o the offensive behavior start whining at imvu staff cos the got booted and they did "nothing" wrong. It is just a simple walk trough on how imvu works and when you know hw things work, it will increase the experience for all.

Same goes for friending randomly. if ppl wants to be friends with someone make sure they come in the room and have a nice and friendly chat with the ppl in there first.

it just an idea to make the experience more enjoyable for all.

While the intentions of this idea are good, they sadly will solve nothing. You could hold someones hand and walk them step by step through whatever. The minute you let go of that hand, there is no guarantee they will continue to do as you showed them. It's human nature.

I had on my profile card, please don't send me a friend request without at least talking with me first. I get a random friend request and I send the person a nice message saying, "It's not very polite to just send people friend requests." I don't think for a minute those people cared about what I wrote and continue doing what they were doing.

To an extend i agree with u Aegenia. That is that although you give ppl explanation and let them actually do something to earn some (bonus) credits, there will always some rude ppl on here. The general idea is to let ppl experience first the ins and outs of imvu, so at least those who are willing and really want to enjoy themselves on imvu at least know what in general is expected of them and at least know how to, for instance, lower their kbs and all.
It wouldn't only save time for the owners of the rooms, to have to explain things that ppl should have learned in the first place when they joined up and made their avi, but would also save imvu staff a lot of time cs they don't have to sift through all the bs reports from newbies that they got booted cos they didn't do "nothing"wrong. Not saying they where rude and disrespectful to others.
About 8 yrs ago or smething like that, imvu had such a feature. Ik cos,although this avi procard says 3 yrs, I've been around already for at least 10 yrs. It was a very useful feature cos at least you would know how to lower kbs, to inform you bout the room you wanted to go to and what was expected in tht room. Same went for profile cards. You where better prepared back then of what was expected of you by the room owner and how you could find ut who they where and who was a mod in that room.
You couldnt say You didnt knw. Also it would help a bit I think if we, the experiencd users of Imvu, would help others out like we got help when we started on imvu.

I think the general idea is nice. Educate people on how things work. Very similar to the quests that the have on the client. I think it would benefit those that cared, sadly it also rewards those that don't care in the least. Those people shouldn't be getting rewarded because they don't care. It's almost like a parent rewarding their child for bad behavior.

I think I may be able to show a good example of this idea kind of falling flat on its face. In my opinion a common sense practice as well as a common internet practice, and even here on IMVU users see it to a degree. "Don't give your password out to strangers." "Don't click on suspicious links" "If it sounds to good to be true, it probably is." How many times do we see on the forums, "I clicked on a link and now I lost my account." "This person said they were my friend and I gave them my PW and now I lost my account." I think you could walk over to the off topic forum and there is a thread about this still up talking about just that.

As I said before, I think the intentions are good. I just think that in the end, it's not going to solve a whole lot. I honestly feel there are more people that could care less than actually care. But maybe something users could do instead of expecting IMVU to do anything about it. Maybe they could shoulder that responsibility. Instead of just booting people out, offering them some pointers to help them avoid those issues later on while they enjoy the site. I don't think it would matter a whole lot more, but personal interaction vs an automated guide might be more meaningful.
