Back when the Name Change Token was available when you purchase a card I bought one to get the guest_ off this name. I had and still have no intention of changing this name, but a friend of mine really wants to change his name, but doesn't have the money to change it now and I thought since I am not using it it might be a good idea to transfer it to him.

I have filed help tickets on two different occasions, once several months back when I first got the NCT and once fairly recently and still haven't had a response. Don't want to badger them over something that is not huge.

I thought maybe having it where you could transfer an NCT that you have no intention of using might be a good suggestion. It's not a pressing issue, just something I thought might be a good idea. Like when you want to gift credits to someone, have an option to gift a NCT if you have one.

What do you think?

The reason why IMVU didnt implement this is because to prevent hackers from sending cash value items to change it to RL money. If they allowed this people would abuse it... like you buy for 9.90USD and sell it to someone who dont have credit card for 20USD. People always find ways to abuse something when a privilege is given. Besides its a way of income to IMVU inc. IMVU expects people to buy them not share them.

Yes, but I don't want to sell it, I don't want money for it. I want to give it away, I have no use for it. Also, another way to have them still make money is, if you want to transfer it, have it charge the sender a certain amount, that way no matter what IMVU still makes some sort of profit.

Of course, people can always abuse the system. No matter what they put on here someone will find a way to abuse it, it's just the way dishonest people work unfortunately. They ruin it for honest people.

As far as I know you are still allowed to transfer name change tokens, but as you have noticed IMVU Help Tickets aren't much help. Instead of submitting a new ticket I suggest bumping the tickets you currently have open.

LIKES this idea. Very Happy Since there is no way to "cash them in" for real currency....being able to transfer them ourselves to a Friend would certainly remove that burden from IMVU Customer Service....and make the transfer quicker for the person who'd like to use the token.

However, the one draw back from it, is that EVERY time someone attempts to use a NCT anymore to change their name, they put the request in to do it, then mysteriously the name they want suddenly appears as a "Premium Name"....thus making the NCT worthless to them.

Has anyone figured out how to give a NCT away? I have one on an account that I have NO intention of changing its name... you know... this one... however... I DO have 6 alt accounts that need it. Is there any way I can transfer/give this name change token to one of my other accounts?

Maybe you have been a vip for 3 months, any vip members for 3 months will get a name change token free. But sorry currently there is no way to transfer name change tokens that are already owned.

Only way you can transfer a Nct is to file a help ticket telling them who you want to transfer it to.

That's what I thought too, but I have seen many people claiming otherwise. I'm going to have to try it and see if it still works. Anyone want an NCT? (:

I purchased a token before knowing I only needed the credits to get my premium name and I contacted imvu and after verifying my account they send the ticket to the person you nominate... they are really helpful here =)

I have heard some say that you get a NCT after a year not sure i have been here over the year time and now see i had a NCT however maybe it is because of being vip for over a year as well. But i do think that we should be able to gift the token if we wish. I have read that we can send in a help ticket and let them the staff members know and they will remove the token and send it to the account we have requested. not sure but i will check into it more
