Adults (users 18+) should be able to have free VIP Access Pass and Age Verification. People who have been on here for a year or more should have the option to remove "Guest_" from thier names for free. Please consider making these changes? Very Happy

I can agree with your free Age Verification token, but with nothing else.

VIP is a paid subscription for a reason, its negated by being free.

If AP were automatically free for those over 18, then people that lied when they registered and are actually underaged would have AP and that's illegal in a way and would also mean that IMVU could no longer be connected to Paypal.

"Guest_" off of your name is not that expensive and it's one more thing that IMVU can charge for without raising the prices of everything.

SO yes, receiving a free Age Verification token would be awesome at 18 because if you use it and you lied, well, it'll fix the problem, won't it? The other suggestions would cause more problems than it's worth.

I don't believe they should have any of those things for free, for one VIP is a concurring paid subscription, AP is made for users 18+ only but so many users lie about their ages that it would be abused. As far as the age verification token it comes free with the AP and if you want you can buy an AP and get it for free because the cost of the AP is about the same as the token by itself.

If you want free things then IMVU is in my opinion not the website for you for the simple fact that you need money to get basic things on this website, promo credits can only take you so far.

I just saw you want them to take the Guest_ away for free as well. The cost of taking away the Guest_ is 99 cents by buying VIP for a month. Think of how much money we spend on food alone a dollar is nothing to get your name registered, it shouldn't be free whatsoever.

For the age verification, IMVU could have an form for users to upload a copy of a government issued ID with your real name and date of birth then from there an IMVU staff member could approve it that way. I turned 18 back in May and would love to have the benefit of being age approved with out it costing me anything. But of course, I don't forsee that even happening anytime soon because of so many people disagreeing with me. But hey it was only a suggestion and I wasn't intending to make any one mad at me for it.

No one's mad at you, we're just giving you the facts on how the website is run. Everyone would love to have something for free, but it just doesn't work that way. The only thing I agree with being free is the age verification token, however it should never be anything automatic because we all know that many little kids and teenagers lie about their ages. If IMVU could ever make the age verification process easier for non-US citizens, I would be all for an age verification being required BEFORE the AP purchase link is even visible/available to a user.

Anyone can fill out a form and use goverment papers to back up a claim on who they say they are doesn't mean it's true. How many kids know full well where mum and dads passports are kept etc....

Age verification should be free to everyone. VIP is a subscription so no, you have to pay for that. As for the guest tag, I wouldn't mind seeing it removed entirely from IMVU because some of our more immature members tend to look down on guest users as something subhuman. This is a form of biggotry that IMVU itself created in an effort to get us to pay.

They should at the very least remove the guest tag if you buy credits directly from IMVU or spring for AP to make it less gimmicky. One of my friends who I invited to IMVU went around with the guest tag for months, despite spending $100 on credits directly from IMVU on several different occasions as well as buying AP. He simply didn't want the VIP and thought buying his name made absolutely no sense on top of everything else he'd already purchased.

I agree. It's not right for those who have been on here for God only knows how long and are still wearing a tag. Some people can not afford to go buy credits...

I'd say the age verification means very little, but guest tag removed on buying credits from IMVU would be an ideal.

No AP for free, no VIP for free.
I am tired of explaining this.
PAY FOR YOUR LUXURIES.
If everyone has to pay for shelter, etc, then pay for your luxuries.
Sure, everyone should have blocks against actions, but you didn't pay for those credits monthly and sure didn't pay for that 10% discount in the catalog.
