Official ‘More Ways to Get Credits’ Thread.

This thread is a place to consolidate the discussions and the pros and cons of implanting more features to the get credits system.

Any spam or personal attacks will be removed. Keep the discussion to the ideas presented and not the people presenting them.

Do not presume any ideas expressed here are IMVU’s official position on the matter, we are all merely users here and can only express our personal opinions on the subject.

Spam posts that are just saying "yes" “no” or "I agree" will be removed. You can say “yes” "no” or I agree” but please follow it up with why.

Any posts without real content will also be removed. “There should be more games” Okay but what games? How will they play? How will they effect the user base?

IMVU has two forms of currency.

Promotional credits: Gift credits issued to gain new users and ultimately convert them to paying customers. Promotional credits can only be use for purchasing things for yourself or for developing costs. Promotional credits can not be transferred, converted, or sold due to abuse potential. When purchasing an item with promotional credits the developer is giving you that product as a promotional item and not earning any profit.

Credits: Purchased Credits backed with real currency. With Credits you may purchase for yourself, others. You may also trade, and sell purchased credits.

Facts on IMVU economy to know and take into account when making and discussing a suggestion.

There are currently several ways to get and earn credits on IMVU including...

Purchase: Buy credits from IMVU or its Developers. Be sure to avoid these fraudulent resellers, however.

Free Spin: this has been removed by IMVU

Referrals: Earn promotional credits for bringing in new users with the Power Earners Program.

Browsing [new products] this has been removed by IMVU

IMVU Movies: Enjoy the drama of IMVU's ongoing web video series! only available in some countries

Developing: Earn real credits by becoming a Developer. (Will Earn a Token for a Promotional sale)


Unlike other online communities you may have been a part of IMVU’s economy is a real economy and its credits have an exchange value. IMVU’s chat client and homepages are indeed free, developer content is not. Making everything free is contrary to the independent developing program IMVU is built on.

Please keep these concepts in mind when discussing.

There are also members here at imvu who will gladly pay other members for things such as having a siggy designed or a homepage designed with credits.

Also there are contests such as the one currently running in Miscellaney and sponsored by Potholder.

Many creative ideas are around for getting credits if one is only willing to put in the work or time spent looking around.

As well there are members who have more credits than knowledge of how to run the previewer and would pay for the tuteledge. Wink

Perhaps IMVU should start a 'services needed/wanted' forum for those banners, hp help and developer tutelage. People with those skills could check there and offer their help as they had time or needed credits.

It's a really good idea & I will mention it to the CAB later today.

Thank you Lalikat, I appreciate that. It would be nice to be able to centralize the discussions that invariably pop up around this highly controversial topic. Give them all a place of their own to meet and link to earning opportunities or find services in exchange for such. Cool

I don't know if someone suggested it already,but I'll say my idea.
How about a kind of "neopet" concept?(yeah,i know..but myself,there is years i didnt go there.. Embarassed )
Play games for earn promo credits?
Like fore one point scored,something like 0.10 predit will be earned.
What do you think of that?

yea i agree.and we can also if possible get an option to like work like make the avatar work in the coffee shop for like 50 creds a minute
and that would keep us busy and interested in imvu or like as you said the fishing game would be fun. we could get credits for how big the fish is. Very Happy

More thread cleaning...

Blaming once personal economic status has no bearing on ideas for new ways to earn credits on IMVU.

We all know we can purchase credits if we can afford it. How bout we talk about what we can’t do?

If I could give you what "fredits" I have left, I would... Sad

Being new to all this, I find it exciting... but I am "using it on my own"beta" trial" so depending how I find it will decide if I'm going put some of my "Real Money" into it....

Suggestion: Why not give some "fredits or credits" for reporting on a crash... it crashed on me the other day and gave me a chance to explain what I was doing before the crash, when it crashed.... I really didn't have to comment, but I'm sure in some way it was helpful that I did...

Now they might not want to advertise that they'll give you fredits for that, but it would be a nice little surprise gift... for being helpful and having deal with the unpleasant little hiccups as we all move toward helping them with impovements!

Or allow at least to be able to donate fredits to minors??? hmmm then we might get nothing but people pretending to be minors... ok scratch that...

How about a "good will boutique" for those slightly used items.... ok sliding of subject... sorry.

Dude.... it would be pretty cool to make a scene that played poker.... and you could gamble your creds against other IMVU users so that the money value was still there.

I think that there should be a way were you get credits for posting in threads in the forums, for those of us who can't buy credits from the creators or developers. Checking the catalog every day for the new stuff hardly rakes in any credits for me =(

i totally think that there should be more credit earning possibilities. i mean c'mon, how many popular sites are there that say " buy ur money or run out and quit "? Rolling Eyes

so, i was thinking that maybe a lottery, but especially some sort of game selection to pick from. or maybe the amount of buddies u have counts towards your credits. and im not liking the free spin, i wouldnt play it at all if it werent for the fact that its the only game. paying for playing is a bad concept . you think your winning until you lose it all. i mean, the IMVU creators cant be that heartless, right? Confused

anyways guys, get yourselves heard! the credits arent enough here!!

PS is the html code working? i cant get my letters to go bold.
