[quote="Varsha"][b]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[/b]

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)

[b]If the room owner is VIP:[/b]

[i]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![/i]

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

[i]The friends do NOT need to be VIP members.[/i] 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 [url=http://www.imvu.com/vip_club/]here[/url].

[b]If the room owner is Age-Verified:[/b]

--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 [url=http://www.imvu.com/promotions/age_verification/]here[/url].

[b]If the room owner is VIP or name registered:[/b]

--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 [url=http://www.imvu.com/promotions/name_registration/]here[/url].


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.

[url=http://www.imvu.com/download.php]Download[/url] 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][/quote]




I am "aged verified," and I have the badge to prove it. Why don't I see this feature for my public rooms? I have downloaded the update, I have signed out and signed back in. I still do not see this option.

Your account has an age verification token (it comes with the Access Pass), however, you are not yet age verified.

Thank you.

All I see is a sales page. If we've got the token, why do we have to buy this? I bought AP and got an AV token, so do I have to buy this too? I don't see the option so I don't think I do. I would think that everyone who bought AP /an AV token shouldn't have to make an additional purchase, anyways.

If you have bought the AV token, you don't have to buy anything else, but just because you have the token doesn't mean you have been age verified. You have to send proof to IMVU and you do that with a copy of an ID through the help center, where you can attach the picture file. The link that Mommajack gave you will start the ball rolling.

I still don't get why older users are suddenly forced to verify our ages, though. I checked, I'm verified, whew... I do not want to wait weeks to get any help. A friend of mine tried buying AP (she's my age) since she had to get a new credit card and it was different then the one on file so it got denied and they never got back to her. I wish the help ticket people would have actually resolved that, because I had a load of AP items I wanted to gift her, but I'll save my credits.

Because you were grandfathered in, like most of us were, you didn't need the AV. But with the change in the rules about how AP could be optained, that AV token is necessary & with the new Public Room chat options, we can set it to AV only. Keep in mind that some kids under 18 did take their parents' credit cards to get AP, so they very well may not be adults. The new selections for public rooms would keep them out since the only way they could get age verified is with an ID. Therefore, even though you're old enough, you haven't been age verfified and can be excluded in rooms that are set to AV Only. I actually explained this to one of my friends the other day. She was concerned about her identity being stolen but I told her that IMVU will not use that in any way except to determine that she was who she said she was....and now she has AV.

I AM verified though. I checked on the access pass page. Which is a load off. I didn't want to have to go through that process, because the help ticket desk would probably have gotten back to me sometime in 2015, if I had to go through a help ticket.

You'll need to go through them though, but it only takes a couple days. Did you send a copy of your ID to them?

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.

Access pass page says my age is verified. Can't you read, or are you just being a troll? I said that twice.
