Hello,

Myself an my group of friends just faced a problem with an user who recently started to show up to a our public room and uses "Crash codes".

The room is a high hot spot for many people, and it's always full.
Sadly, the owner of the room can't use his account (I am not sure of details), therefore we don't have any control over room, or any mods in it. So we can't kick or ban.

The sad part is, that this room is very popular and killing it because of one user causing problems would be a huge shame.

My question is, is there a way to ban the user from our room by imvu Moderators? I would be more then happy to provide more info (as well as the "hackers" name) and I would be more then happy to invite moderator to do test in our room.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Room name: The Undead Cellar

Well, I don't see why Vore didn't give anyone moderator in the room.. But if he did he needs to tell them to get back in there every once in a while or just that give you moderator status in there.. Because WE all know your always in there. Rolling Eyes The main problem is he has better things to do with his time then get on IMVU, So he won't be able to get rid of these people that use these "crash codes" out of there.

Read my post carefully Bob, Vore (the owner of the room), his account is not working anymore. So he can't make anyone a mod.

Only the room owner can ban someone from the room and you have said that is impossible.
The only alternative would be if you can find out what this 'crash code' is so tht IMVU can disable it.

I wish I knew how to check that. But pretty much every time specific person speaks, it crashes them, sometimes up to 5-6 people crash in same time.

I did a test, and when I did not speak in chat at all, it didn't crash me. But as soon as I did speak, I would crash.
So he must be pushing some sort of script based on "speak" action of some sorts.

He admitted to pushing script to one of our members (in whisper, and we have a screen shot of that to proove).
He said he does it to people he apparently doesn't like.
His new to the room, never been in Cellar before till 2 days ago.

Auntiepj, is there a way that moderator can join our room when the person is in it and try to see what he is doing exactly?

or is it possible to ban him from imvu if we have screen shots of him saying his scripting?

This person is beyond believe, he just made new account name Guest_[name removed because of forum rules -auntiepjl ] and is now crashing another room.
Thankfully there are mods in there that can block him at some point.

Mods have no control over any other part of IMVU but the forums.

You need to remove the names please... it is against forum rules to name names in a negative light. No matter what.

If you have a person admitting to doing something like crashing people then you need to report the person while in chat with them so that the chat log will be sent to IMVU.

Thank you, I did report him today when he did admit to scripting, the problem is he just makes new account (we already know about 2). But perhaps he will stop after one ban (if he gets ban or warned).

Most likely he or they will not stop. Sadly there have been groups of people like this for years. I know there are at least 2 groups of people that have been known to pick rp groups to go after and do everything they can to cause them to stop making public rooms to use. They seem to get joy out of being childish.

If your dealing with one of those people they will just use an account until it is disabled and then make a new one if they don't already have one ready. Sadly IMVU does what they can but there is no way of stopping them from making new accounts.

Although good news is that reporting them get the info IMVU needs to either slow them down or if you can managed to report them while using the code IMVU can try to disable it.

All I can do is ask staff if they know of a way that a script could make people crash when they speak and if so can they block it.

Well I found out one code they were using and it seems IMVU disabled it.Now there is a tyrannical person using a different one.These codes crash people individually.There is a product I reported and many other people reported that crashes the room.IMVU never removed it.So now I have to figure out what code this person is using and report it also.

If that product you mentioned is still in the catalog, please send the information about it either to a forum moderator, an IMVU staff person, OR me in PM, and i will forward the information on to IMVU staff directly.

If that product is doing what you say then it needs to be removed.

That product has just been repaired by IMVU so that it will no longer crash the messenger.

Sad
