With release 487.0, new users (newly registered accounts) will have an opportunity to explore three different types of rooms that are easy to navigate and simple to use. They can still explore all other public rooms as well. The new user welcome rooms are designed and owned by IMVU and are meant to address the issue of new users getting booted out of rooms too frequently.

This thread is for discussion related to this topic.

Thank you.

OK, forgive me but I don't understand this line of thinking at all. How is this going to keep from being booted from public rooms? I mean, I realize that they won't be booted from the 3 rooms you have made available to them, but they will still get booted from the other rooms they go to.

The new users make a lot of friends there, groups and such, and also can touch everyone and try the actions without being booted. They make bonds and learn a bit about IMVU.

You can see it like a kindergarten before going to the wildness of the owned public rooms. It works great so far.

Idea is to get them to explore and learn about IMVU before they venture into public rooms so they know about actions, reading room descriptions etc.

Basically, first chat they encounter should not end up in a boot.

I agree if they are legitimate users Varsha. We all had a start somewhere. I can remember back when I first used IMVU, the actions were so cute to me. But, now comes the question... I can almost guarantee that you will end up with people who make new accounts for the exclusive purpose of trolling these welcome rooms and attacking the new people. How are you going to handle people who repeatedly spam attack actions on others, etc?

So far it really is going well Very Happy New users are making friends with new users rather than being thrown in at the deep end. It's a much better 'tutorial' than the one IMVU provides and it can be used to teach new users about how to avoid scams :3

You are right and we will always have to rely on flagging tools and our actions to control such activities. We are setting up a group of volunteers who are helping us moderate these rooms - by providing mostly social interactions but taking booting action when it is truly warranted.

I think it is great that there are rooms out for the new comers to IMVU, for older users have had the nasty tendency to boot and make them feel unwelcome and all too many I would say IMVU has lost many potential clients this way. Now a much more chat friendly enviroment is created for them and I am sure they will florish into decent chatters and become good citizens of IMVU.

Good. I'm pleased by this. IMVU is already needlessly hostile towards newcomers as it is. I have seen far too many 'if your account is under 'x' length of time old you will be booted!' rooms. This seems ridiculous to me. Especially if that person came from a different chat environment, and knows how to actually behave themselves.

With all of the recent changes and additions, is there any possible way you all can make a room filter for public room owners to set our rooms to registered name owners only??? Any time I have my rooms set to GA they get bombarded with NEW guest accounts, since my rooms are often on the first couple of pages of the rooms' tab they attract a lot of people. While I don't mind random people coming into my rooms, it is highly annoying when trollers come in and spam and act stupid.

If you wish your room to be visited by registered name owners only then I suggest you make your rooms VIP, this way only VIP users can enter your rooms and you wont have to worry about "Geust" account holders entering though I find your thought very shallow as chat is for everyone, I boot and block them if they start drama in my rooms, for instance troll.

DD the only issue would be the ones that have VIP and haven't registered their names. But that is only a slight glitch.

only issue i see is if no one can boot out of these rooms that the noobs that like to cause trouble will wreke havoc. im not saying all noobs are bad but there are those among us that love drama. i myself not being one. i think imvu had better rethink that option or have monitors in the room Rolling Eyes Shocked Rolling Eyes
