Can we make it easier to gift people then?

Load a room, right click on person, select gift, delay while gift list loads, choose gift, include message hit send. It all sounds easy enough but there's enough lag delay in there that often the person has left the room, thinks your ignoring you, shut off IMVU, grabbed a soda from the fridge and turned on the TV. ( while your still loading their wish list )

I'd love to see a "Gift Room " feature, right click on room, select gift all, your wish list loads, select a gift, select users in room you want to send too, write message, hit send. Everyone gets a gift at once and you can carry on as part of the conversation.

If you want people to gift more, don't tell them.. just give us the tools to actually do it. Razz

So to clarify...
you need to see sales of 250,000 DIFFERENT items on April 1st.
Correct?

Well since no one can find my products in the polluted and disorganized catalog, I volunteer a link to my catalog which features over 3000 visible items. I will keep the 1700+ items hidden to be fair to the other creators in the site.

And I guess people know they can also buy credits from Resellers which REALLY supports the community creators. (Click gold credit in my badges for a listing of the best in the site!)

Happy Birthday IMVU.

Curious as to what *unique* means.

Unique means individual items.

To clarify, item X being purchased 10 times won't count toward the record 10 times - only once.

Items X, Y, Z being purchased at least once will count as 3 items purchased.

Makes sense?

Thanks

Great suggestions 4U. The gifting tools won't change in time for this event but we are planning to make some improvements in the near future!

It might be a little hard to find unique items when developers get their work stolen all the time, but what the heck, I'm game.

The trick will be making sure you're buying from the actual creator and not someone who "ripped" the developer's mesh and sells it as their own.

unique would just mean by PID number by what Varsha is saying, so if you gifted your latest item to 50 people, it would only count once. Idk though if there is a really hot item that thousands of people decide to gift to their friends, is that not going to count after the first one?

Do I get a prize?




I know Matt has a funny little sense of humor.
I can't help but feel this is a ploy to see if the little lab rats follow through the maze because they are confused by the directions.

Ok folks...
They must all be different PIDs to be included in the count of their goal.

Sikk..ZCD's count...since they are obviously allowed in the catalog.

Rolling Eyes


Sure wish there was a way to educate people on how to get more bang for their buck! Follow the derive little pixels! Follow the derive!

Oh...and click that badge of mine Wink
