Have you been in chats and tried to say hi to someone else in the room?

Avatar names on IMVU can be long and pretty complex! Its very common for all of us to misspell them or shorten them to something to make it easy.

Well that should not be an issue anymore! Download our latest pre-release 507.12 and test our new feature - Auto-complete.

Start typing a name and it will complete it with the appropriate avatar's name that is in the chat room with you.

Don't want to accept the suggested "auto-complete"? No problem. Simply type over the suggestion and continue on....

We look forward to your feedback about this improvement to your chat conversations.

Update: Account settings in the client (General section) has an option to turn Auto-complete feature off.

P.S. This was a project that came out of a late night "hack" session at IMVU.

Wow! Very Happy This sounds great.
I type full avatar names especially when it's just my first time talking to the person so this feature will be of great help. Thank you.

Tested! It's working very good, this will be very helpful for greeters.
IMVU should do more "hack" sessions Smile

This is a cute feature.. but it would be nice if IMVU would focus on fixing other issues instead of adding new features just waiting to break.

At least IMVU is trying to improve, nobody's perfect including you.

~Off Topic~ could you at least be nice enough to write in a color that was somewhat legible?

It has nothing to do with being perfect or not.. and I understand that IMVU has multiple teams working on things.. But all I keep seeing and others have mentioned.. they say they have multiple teams working on things, but issues that have been pointed out, not just days ago.. we are talking YEARS.. are still waiting to be fixed.

But instead of these issues being fixed.. we have yet another feature that is just waiting to break.

While I do think this is a nice addition.. I really wish IMVU would focus more on getting their core right instead of branching it out into a million various directions.

I suggest you write all problems detailed in the Issues and Bug Reporting forum so IMVU tech can look into it.

I did just upgrade to the latest client and i'm guessing it doesn't auto complete ones own name.

One thing I have noticed is that if the user has a guest account.. you do have to start with typing Guest.

And it seems to work when it wants to..

I tried typing someones name twice in different ways, but ended up having to manually type it in.

Great feature, can't wait to test it out. If someone's name is TheBodaciouslyLongUserName12345, I usually just end up calling them... Bo? xD
