You can still type nicknames or shorten people's names. Just hit space bar after you type what you want.

Lets say you were typing to me in a chat and wanted to call me by name. Just type Dew (space) the rest goes away.

Yesterday I was speaking to LauraLight. Auto complete didn't kick in until I had typed Laur after I typed the a I hit space bar and Light disappeared.

I guess what I am trying to say in my very muddled coffee starved brain is you don't really need a tab or an option to opt out. Space bar does that for you. And since you generally hit space bar after someones name it should all work out.

I can see some people loving this and some people hating this. All I want to hear is that IMVU included an opt-out for those who hate it.

Ok, I love that there is a place to go so that we can decide not to use this feature but when imvu makes a change like this that does have a direct impact where it's changed for us first, it would be nice if like with the ads and promotions that there is a link to the forums with "Want to learn more about the latest update? Click here." or something like that. Not everyone uses the forums.

I say bring on more hack night sessions. I love this new useful feature. Another suggestion would be auto correct now.

A side question cause i see alot of smart ppl responding to this thread....If IMVU can do this name thingy then why cant it keep spammers from posting those links in the chat log?? IDK maybe theres a good reason for it so im just asking they could be working on it too,, ty all for any info forgive my lack of knowledge.

Interesting feature. Personally I always use shortened versions of peoples names. Full names are so formal in a friendly chat. Or the person usually asks to be called something else, so its somewhat annoying to have to fidget with greeting my visitors. I'll be opting out. But good job on the programming. Smile

For every single method in existance to cut links out of being added into a chat there are multiple methods to get round them.

Thank you for actually giving a opt out straight away at that why can't you actually give us more opt outs more quickly like this one more often Question

In my experience, you only get called your full name when you're in trouble with Mom. >.<

While the whole "DEEP trouble with Mom" thing is true in real life. I am not sure it carries through to here.

I generally call people that I have just met by their full name on here. Until I am told differently. They picked their name for a reason I feel I should use it. Now if GlitterFairyPrincessUnicorn8473 tells me that she wants to be called Mo thank GOODNESS for that.
I agree with everyone on here who says this isn't really needed when chatting with our friends. I feel this is an amazing tool for when you do get strangers to come into the room. This is VERY handy letting them know you are speaking to them and not someone else who may have a similar name.

▲Hahaha

The feature is okay. So many odd spellings out there that sometimes it's really difficult to even welcome someone by name - and who wants to type in anything over 4 letters?

And with the tap of a space bar we still have access to 3 letter nicks.
