I agree that IMVU needs to change things back in some ways. I've been a member for 7 years and am far from happy with things now. It is now one of the hardest place to make friends and just hang out. From what I can tell, there are more children than adults. So much so that the AP DOC was taken away. You have both types of items in the catalog, why not have both DOCs? It's annoying. IMVU caters to the children instead of the money spending adults. I stopped using IMVU for a while because of this and HOPED that it would have changed since. Not the case. Very disappointing. The reason I finally came to find a place to post anything is because I notice a severe decline in not only Groups, but DOC entries as well. What saddens me is the fact that DOCs are still a popularity contest and not based on talent. I really miss the old IMVU. Yes, some aspects of IMVU are still fun, but there are still things that should be brought back and/or changed completely. Life is a work in progress though.

I feel like IMVU has lost some respect from a majority of users, though. As said, IMVU used to be better than this. You could go out and chat with anybody. Not a lot of users were picky, spoilt and ignorant like a quarter of our active userbase. It used to be that mostly everyone was friendly, having conversations like this:

"Hi Bob! How are you? How was your day?"
"Hi Jim! I'm great! What about you? My day was also great! What about yours?"
"Both awesome, thanks!"

Whereas now it's...

"Hi everyone!"
"Urm, who are you and why are you here?"
"I just came to say he... *BOOT*"

I'm sure that not everybody is like this, I've met many awesome people, but for some people it's like the world revolves around them. They can copy an outfit, but nobody else can? They can be in a PUBLIC room but nobody else can? They can talk how they'd like but whenever somebody else does they get the boot? It happens all the time.

"Hi everybody! How're you guys?"
"GO AWAY STUPID NEWBS! UR S000 LAME L0L"

Disagree with me but I can assure you that action isn't being taken to prevent any of this.


IMVU has nothing to do with the users who make the chat rooms. It's the users. I kind of think you're making invalid points.


IMVU needs to control their users one way or another. I'm not making invalid points. This is what happens and it should be stopped or at least cared for.

Imvu is getting boring but it aint IMVU fault. Its the people on IMVU. A lot has changed..but I mean sometimes change is good right? I would say though that the people who be on this 24/7 is the ones that's mostly complaining. I really dont care bout it but it is what it is. if you don't like how IMVU runs..leave simple as that.

I do agree with you on this one. Imvu is filled with immature people MOSTLY kids. & most of the adults be acting like kids. So I do agree that IMVU is not the same as it was back then & I only been on IMVU for like 3 years.But at the same time it is what it is.

Of course it sucks. Any type of software they can scam money out of people who use it usually goes through this, dare I even call it, "Transitional" stage. The point is - They're running off with your money. Who cares what happens on the software they make? So long as people keep paying them for products, be it VIP, Credits, Extra rooms, whatever it may be, they're making bank on everyone using this. Sure it could get better, and in my opinion, a lot better. The coding for this software is poor, memory leaks used to be a large issue with IMVU. The graphic interface looks more like something you'd see from 2004, and each update that rolls out has at least one major bug about it. But as long as they keep the herd satisfied enough to keep spending money, that's the bottom line here. Every company does it. This is the way of future marketing and business. If you want change, it's going to take more than forum posts and angry e-mails.

Some of us are active because we have family and friends on here that may not live close, it doesn't mean that we are happy about the changes that have been made and it does not mean we don't go else where. I only come on to visit family and friends and read the forums a bit. I did have some fun with deving on here but even that has changed and sucks now. Once you have done something on imvu, it gets boring after a while, nothing new has been happening that makes people excited to stay unless it is for "monthly spending vips" because, you know, people that buy credits, spend money on AP ect... aren't real customers and don't deserve the perks unless we pay even more for it. I agree with the above comments and no it is not all the user faults. Imvu started advertising through websites meant to draw in kids (like fb), so yes the people on here are awful now, unless they are people that have been on here a long time, or a rare nice new person that ends up quitting (like my sis)...who came on here and got booted in about every room she went in, kbs to high, well she doesn't know about that stuff and people are to rude to explain to her...geeeeez

Imvu has always had kids around , it was those kids that made imvu at one time , back in 2005 it was full of teenagers and students then too , i was one of those kids back then aged 14,,the students and the teens were the ones putting their real cash into imvu , how can people complain about kids/teens being on imvu when it was targetted at the students in the first place anyway ? Maybe its the oldies that need to find somewhere else , maybe its those that are taking imvu way too seriously with their babies , marriage and online families , some of the oldies have spoilt imvu , by taking everything way too seriously , at one time imvu was fun because people did not take it as though it was their real life ..

There is Second Life for that. And what's wrong with nodes? This isn't an MMORPG.

imvu has honestly just went to being garbage. They've yet to fix the problems with room pictures being able to be ap or with avi pictures being able to be ap (wich is what was paid for years ago) they still haven't fixed many bugs instead they cram more into imvu to try and shine it up. You can polish a terd but it's still a terd. There Customer Care and Education is both a joke and an insult to anyone with a valid complaint. All they do is try to find any way to pin it back on you even if it's there screw up and thats when they don't copy and paste wich isnt often. Then if you prove yourself right and them wrong they don't bother to respond anymore. Good example I've had a ticket open for going on 3 months without them making it even remotely right. They've lied and tried a few bully tactics wich didnt work. I even bought 2 months of vip in an attempt to get the issues resolved and still didnt get anything put right.

@AthernZala : Good luck that you find people to relize your idea Very Happy

It's always good to have an choice between more options , some are not pleased with both IMVU and Second Life ... Why not a better new 3D Chat Wink

BTW , I never understand why so many at the forum defend their "dots" , the dots are the reason why so many people I have shown IMVU to win them as new member dislike IMVU ... in over 2 years I have shown IMVU to over 70 people (friends and family) - I have met not only one who had said "Yeah , the dots are great - love them" ... they all say "Are you kidding ? so nice avatars , rooms , grafic but no walking ?" .
The problem with the dots (nodes) is , IMVU had started many many years ago with this technologie (engine) and it's not changeable - maybe it's changeable , but it would cost more than making a brand new 3D chat .

Not everything is perfect. Lets say we do have the ability to walk.

The very first few complaints would be: "Omg. Why are my arms and legs bend so weird when it's trying to walk?!" "Why is IMVU lagging so badly for me?! I never had anything like this before!" "I can't wear my favorite outfit because it makes me crash, now." "Why does my avatar walk so funny? Is there a way to change that?!" "Everything about my avatar is so stiff. When is IMVU going to make my hair flow?"

People have this need to have their experience look so realistic, it could potentially lose their perception of what's real and what isn't. And usually, that's fine. People can do that if it makes them happy. But once you give people the ability to walk on IMVU, the complaints will skyrocket. Money, time, and effort would be wasted.

And say that IMVU does have that all down packed. All in all, IMVU is a resource hog. No matter what. We developers can put out almost whatever we want now. What if we developers get a limit to how many KBs to have so your computer runs smoothly?

In my opinion, IMVU is meant for people who don't have graphics-heavy computers but have at least a good amount of memory to store resources. Anything NOT netbooks is what I'm getting at.

Personally, I'm not necessarily defending nodes. I don't really like them, either. But, I've been around IMVU for a long while and I know their structure is dated. But, I'm just fine with the way it is now. I use IMVU to meet people and create silly things. Walking isn't a necessity in here. And I'm alright with it.

If I want to have an avatar walk around, I'd might as well play an MMORPG, like Final Fantasy XIV or Phantasy Star Online 2.

Oh please, stop giving IMVU so much credit. IMVU is no more fun or boring than any other MMO.
What makes IMVU fun is what I do on it, and the people I choose to hang around. Wink


This place isnt perfect. And it wasnt perfect 5 years ago.


I rather agree with these two above. However, as a matter of general principles, taking from one group to give to another, is really not the way to go. How can you not alienate that group deprived? Come up with something new for VIPs rather then stealing from Peter to give to Paul.

That said, I don't think we were given the real reason for why creation was handed to VIPs. It's just speculation, but I think it was done to slow down the production of new catelog items. I.e., I think their systems are approaching the breaking point. So it may be something that HAD to be done.

But as I said, this is all speculation on my part. Another good possibility is that they made a mint from those creators who moved to VIP so as to continue creating.

Quote from Dei, My replies in ()

-No more unlimited uploaded trigger music ( Legal issues )

-Music store only takes pure credits - Not promos ( Imvu has no control over music store )

-Music store discontinue items ( imvu has no control over music store )
-Mic chat gone ( Was abused and sucked anyway )

-Free spin gone ( Did not give many credits, If you want creds then get a job )

-Creator mode only for VIPs or grandfathered creators ( Most other sites you must pay for features as this, imvu is just catching up )

-High raising of prices ( Everything is going up, They are a business )

-Many errors every update -- You obviously need better beta testers ( imvu is no longer in beta, Agree they need to fix bugs )

-Revoked linking in pulse ( Pulse needs to be taken down completely, Like I need to know your taking a nap or feeding your dog etc etc )

-Can't use promos for much of anything except items for yourself in shop ( You usually get promo credits for free, stop whining )

-What ever the hell you buy in shop uses REGULAR credits up first ( Because regular credits make the world go round )

-FREE age verification with proof ( Don't remember that )

-0.99 VIP trail ( Deals are good I guess )

-When you mute product sounds you don't hear gifting noises ( Really? Your crying about this? )

-Many people are getting banned for stupid reasons that IMVU later discovers were mistakes if the person is eager enough to get their account back ( I have been on imvu for 5 years now and have never been banned and only had like maybe two warnings, More than likely you broke the rules or were doing something to gain imvu's attention )

I find it sad that people expect everything to be handed to them on a silver platter, Yes imvu used to have a lot of free stuff and users had more liberties but what you fail to realize that just a few years ago before imvu starting changing a lot of things they were losing money and on the verge of being no more and was spending more money than they were making, Sense many of these changes imvu is now making money.

imvu is a business and a business must make money in order to stay in business. Even in most online games that are free to play you have to spend real money to get the good stuff so why should imvu be any different?


this ^^^^ I could not say it any better. Thank you.
