I see it this way. Your decision to get this or not depends on the reason your getting VIP. If your getting VIP to create then this offer may not be that appealing to you are a person that likes to have tons of rooms open. Of course there are alternative ways to accomplish this, but this is another way to accomplish said goal.
As far as the price of it goes, to those who cant afford it than don't pay attention to said offer. If you can afford it and your one of the above said people then by all means purchase it.

To the point of the cost of it. That is based on your financial standpoint. Of course not everyone is able to afford to do this. If that is the case then the offer is not for you. You can find another way to accomplish said goal. Like the multiple accounts idea for example. The same thing can be accomplished if you have more than one account.

You do not necessarily have to get on the extra account all the time just make the room furnish it, open it and call it a day.

Another way to look at this is. Why are you getting VIP. If your getting vip just for the features then this offer is not for you.

True some people cant afford to pay for VIP all the time. So to those folks that cant this is a great alternative. They can just buy the extra slot and open the room. They wont have to worry about having to keep up with the subscription so they can keep their rooms open because the slot is permanent.

So there really is no point in complaining about the price because there are alternative ways to do things. You just have to figure out what works for you. But at the end of the day your buying something from the company whether its VIP to create, the marriage badge, shared rooms, your name, etc. at the end of the day your buying something from the company.

UPDATE:

As of May 2nd, anyone who purchased one or more chat room slots should have them available to them. The pre-sale is now over and so is the early bird special discounted price. Plus, chat room slots will not be available for purchase from Monday onward so if you want to get one, this is your chance to do so


Well I'm pissed off... I didn't know the ability to purchase a public room slot was only a temporary thing, I thought it was going to be a package available permanently from now on, and the early bird special was only a 5$ discount on the new feature that was permanent.................. I hate you and I would like it very much if you suddenly got a heart attack.................. ~grumbles~


also, this confuses me..

The early bird special promotion is now over and any chat room slots are now available for $29.99/slot.

Enjoy setting up your new rooms!


Does this mean that we'll be able to buy exgtra room slots forever? or... just for a limited time? Because the advertisement block in the imvu chat client homepage is saying that this is our last chance to buy an extra public room slot.. so I thought they were talking about the early bird special with their silly 5$ discount.. I went to check and it's being sold at regular price o,o So Now I'm really confused about when they say "Last Chance".. It seems liek the early bird special discount is over, and they're ending the public room slot package all together o,O which I find rediculous.. if I had known this wasn't going to be a permanent package, Iwould have bought the early bird specia... now that I see such sloppy information being advertised to the public.. I rather not even bother eventhough it's only 5$ extra... this is just very disrespectful to customers.... it's like imvu has no regards for the public....


FFris it's the discount price that was temporary. I just checked IMVU's shop and the room slots are there for $29.99.

@FFrisbee the chat room slots been advertise as a tempt thing and so have the early bird discount and badge. Further more I personally think its tacky to wish ill fate on anyone cause a feature here is temporarily or not the way you want it to be such remarks should be ban. That's my personal opinion.

I understood Varsha's post in the same way that FFrisbee did. My understanding is that it will no longer be available. I'd also like to point out that it is still Sunday, IMVU time (10:38 p.m. IMVU time).

Clarification:

Chat Room Slots are no longer available at the early-bird discount price of $24.99.

Over the weekend (and continuing through some part of today) they are available for $29.99 but without the early bird badge.

Going forward, Chat Room Slots will not be available for purchase at all.

Thank you

Why will we no longer be able to purchase chat room slots?

Sorry, I misread her posting and didn't see the 'not.'

They won't say it, but I would bet hefty money that its because everyone bitched about the price, sales flatlined, and they're not willing to lower the feature to the price to what its worth - which is about $10.00. IMVU doesn't comprehend pricing a product to market because they live in CA, where prices of everything are sky high from taxes, and think everyone else lives like they do.

I had wanted to buy one, I just don't have any money now, and yes I agree the price is ridiculous.

I am sure it has something to do how much space is being put on their whatever. That is why after 3 months they close unused public rooms. Because more and more public rooms are being added that no one goes to. Just like your computer if you sit there and add a bunch of folders with a couple of pictures over and over a again but never use the folders or pictures again eventually though your computer is going to start getting slower. They did say they are going to try to get us the rooms, that there could have been a chance it wouldn't work and everyone would get refunded. But they are having to give out these extra rooms to however many people by them and they have to make room on their servers and make sure it doesn't slow anything down and blahblah. That is the way I look at it. They said that this is going to be a limited time thing. Plus yea everyone gripping about the price, which is by no means at all over priced. So why keep it around? Look at a couple of you, you are gripping it is over priced and how dare they make it so high, then turn around and complain that it is going away.


I was vip for 4 years. That means I paid roughly around 350-400 dollars for vip for 10 rooms. Well you could have bought 10 rooms for 250 dollars. So really if you are getting vip for the rooms, you are really goign to be saving anywhere between 100 to a few hundred dollars in the long run. Because you think you are going to be on imvu for 6 months? a year? Probably not you will probably be here for a couple of years so really it does pay off. A lot of the past posts was calculating up the cost per room with vip for one year. When really its the life of imvu. You could have paid 250 dollars for 10 rooms for the life of imvu. But now you are going to have to pay atleast 50 dollars to 100 dollars a YEAR for vip. And like I said if you are around like me for 4 years, and on average people pay 350 dollars on vip for 4 years. So no the Permanent room is not priced to high.
