Just like we can hide our outfit, I would like to see the same for public/private rooms and be able to hide your items in your room.

This has been suggested before but I don't think it will be implemented.
The very simple reason is that it will cause a major drop in furniture/room sales.

I'm still surprised that they even have the option to hide outfits in place at all.

I get that each of us has our 'unique' style we want to use on our avatar, but unless you dev everything you wear I don't see why you should have the right to hide everything on you.

Remember the devs live off of their sales in some cases, and in most cases the devs use the credits off of sales to be allowed to continue to develop anything.

Just because I buy your product doesn't mean I am your walking advertisement. I bought your product, so I paid you for it. It is just an exchange of goods, thus I owe the developer nothing more. If developers want to turn their customers into being the equal of a flash ad on a webpage, then they should do what the stores do by putting their names somewhere on their product.

Hiding items in the room would not allow for people to check on GA rated rooms containing AP rated items.

Bad idea.

I don't know about that. I think there is a way that this idea could be done, and everyone wins in the long run.

This is a possibility of how it could work.

Click like you would to view products in room..

Instead of getting a whole list of everything in the room, you get a very basic readout

This room contains:
X number of GA rated products
X number of AP rated products

A. People don't want people mimicking their room without having to go through the work

B. People could still see if there was AP products in a GA rated room

Trust me...
as someone known for my decorating, I don't want people mimicking my rooms either....that is why I only make public the rooms I want to sell products from.

It's a workaround...

Your idea might work except I seriously doubt IMVU would consider the adjustment because it would be throwing unnecessary resources at something that they wouldn't prioritize. There is no revenue generation in the process for them....UNLESS they make it a "VIP Perk".

It's probably something IMVU doesn't want done. I would be cautious about talking about a work-a-round in the open forums.

I look at it in a few different points of view.

1. If someone wants to copy my room piece for piece, have at it. I have better things to do then worry about someone else lack or creativity if they want to copy my room exactly the same way as I have mine. Who am I to complain if they want to waste the credits. Besides, they might be able to mimic the room, but they can't have the name lol.

2. Going with the above mentioned, well it shouldn't be allowed because it will drop room sales etc. I wonder if these people with that mindset only wear their created products? and or, if they do where other products, do they keep their outfits hidden. What is right for the room developer, should also be right for the avatar pieces. If you think that I should have to advertise your room things, shouldn't it also be right that you advertise my hair or whatnot, and not have your outfit hidden.. You are costing me sales XD

Note: The last part of point 2 is just an example, but the point is there.

On the flip side to all of the reason why it would be a good idea to allow hiding room products. There is a very good reason why Room Products should not be allowed, other than the petty vanity.

1. People have enough issues following the rules as is. Countless people having their rooms closed because of not caring about the rules, or just ignorance of these rules. Why give them another tool to just sweep the rules under the carpet.
