Please note: This feature will be available in our next 3D Chat version 491.0 and can also be found in a pre-release version 490.20

One popular request by our customers is an ability to have more controls over who can join their public chat rooms. They often want to have a friends-only party or a celebration, a role-play session with their IMVU family or hang out with a select group of people.

Right now, we do allow our VIPs to set their rooms accessible by other VIPs only and our Access Pass members to set their rooms accessible by other AP holders.

Starting in client pre-release version 490.20, we are giving room owners enhanced access controls over their public rooms. These controls allow them to decide who can find their rooms in chat room searches and who can join them. Of course invites from within the room will still work as before.

The room management tool will now have all of these controls depending on your own account status (name owner, VIP, AP, Age-verified etc)



If the room owner is VIP:

The most requested feature - ability to have a room be "friends-only" is now a new perk for members of our VIP club. They can enjoy their VIP lifestyle even more!

--They can make their rooms available and accessible only to their friends, and also make it so that guest members cannot join them.

The friends do NOT need to be VIP members. The room owner needs to be an active VIP member in order to set their room for those that are on their friends list.

More info about VIP club is here.

If the room owner is Age-Verified:

--They can make their rooms accessible only to other age-verified adults.

Only 18+ adults can verify their age on IMVU. Also age verification confirms that the person is 18 or older.

More info about age verification is here.

If the room owner is VIP or name registered:

--They can make their rooms accessible only to non-guest users.

All active VIPs can use this room control whether or not they have separately registered their name. Users who have registered their name can also use this feature irrespective of their VIP status.

Users who have guest in their avatar name can not enter such rooms. All VIP members (except those on the VIP trial) as well as anyone who has registered their name can enter these rooms.

More info about name registration is here.


As mentioned above, the AP-only and VIP-only options continue to be available as well.

All your rooms still have their current settings and these new controls do not automatically apply to them. Room owners will have to choose to use these controls for their rooms via the room management function.

These room controls can also be easily switched on and off to suit your needs.

We hope all of you enjoy having these room access controls so you can have chats with just the people you want without any interruptions. We also hope new visitors to IMVU will not unintentionally join into private parties and events and then be booted out since the room owners need to save the room spots for their friends etc.

Download 3D Chat version 490.20 and check this feature out. On Tuesday, August 13th (Pacific Time), the feature will also be available in 3D Chat version 491.0.

Not a VIP? This is the perfect time to join that club. You will get to create 10 public rooms PLUS be able to have these new room access controls.

Thank you[/i]

I think the blocking guests will be a mistake in the long run. If a new guest account finds that only a few rooms will allow them to enter they won't stay on IMVU for long.

I also noticed the most popular request of friends only is VIP only.

And oh, yes. Our private chats are still now limited based on what is in our inventory and does not allow for the re-use of room shells.

Why do I feel this is a distraction from that?

I have paid for vip on three accounts for 3 years...its nice to get something that benefits me as a vip. Having once had a very popular public chat room.I can tell you, blocking the guest user will be a good thing. The amount of guest users ive had to boot through begging is unreal. I for one am happy with this.

In all honesty if I was going to limit who could enter my public rooms I'd like to adjust a KB limit such as "No avatars over 2000 KB" or something similar to that.

Question: What's the point of having Access Pass only as an option when if you make your room AP it is Access Pass only by default (that's kind of the point...) Isn't this a redundancy? What would be the point of making a GA room that only allows access pass users?

So, pretty much Varsha, imvu has screwed over and destroyed private chats by installing an auto-close feature, just so they can bring out a new control for VIPs to use in public rooms?

Imvu ruined PCs JUST to make people buy VIP?

Really?

REALLY?

No. I think this was added to try to distract us from the change to private chat...

I would love to check this out, however version 490.18 and 490.20 will not download for me. I get an error message saying it can not be read and therefore can not be saved. Sad First time I have ever had trouble downloading an update.
