I get why people will love this I really do, I love that i can now shop for rooms with my friends I have been wanting that for a very long time since the shared room and wedding package feature. However poses and furniture, I think we should have an actor instead of allowing us to try it for friends. Cause it will cut back on developers sales and here is a couple of reasons why.

1. Yes not everyone will do this but some people will, some people will abuse it and just use rooms and furniture for free. For those of you who think they will not, never underestimate what people will do. Some will and it will cut back on developers sales which leads me to number 2.

2. If it does cut back on sales devs might either hide their furniture or stop making it completely which will make the catalogue smaller which will also be bad for imvu financially cause the devs are the ones that make the products so imvu can make money. Which leads me to my last one number 3.

3. Financially alone this might be a bad idea to try out furniture, cause of the very reason that some people not everyone will abuse it which means less creds to be spent, which is less people buying creds so IMVU will get less money.

Rooms are great, cause who would want to sit in an empty room for hours on end chatting. People like to decorate rooms and they would like to add furniture to it. If you want to do furnitur or poses I suggest go with the actor avi that way it does not effect developers sales. Right now I will be honest I am glad I am just sticking wiht hairs and outfits, I was thinking about doing more but this feature makes me worried about my sales and I am not making loads but i am making quite a bit, I can not imagine what the bigger devs can be thinking about this.

I still think the VIP people should be able to keep things with their friends and keep it as it is..

The other users that also spend money on this site shouldn't be treated like second class citizens just because they are not investing a lot of money.

Hence why I am in full support of the whole try things with people should have stayed VIP and non Vip Members given at least the Add an Actor like creators have.

Unless IMVU is just saying.. "Sorry Non VIP Member.. your money spent here is not as good as a VIP member and you shouldn't be able to at least make more educated purchases."

I really like that shop together is now available for everyone, and how IMVU still keeps something a bit better for VIP. I like that, of course this could be improved, but it is always possible to improve and this is a really good start. Thank you for that.

On the other hand: Wow, there are some anticonsumer developers in this thread. Everything that has been said about hurting sales is just speculation without any evidence until now, so just wait a few weeks and take a look how the sales develop ... if there is a noticeable fall back then come back and complain. But don't complain before you have any numbers whatsoever Smile

But isn't it just speculation to assume that this won't hurt sales for developers?

VIP or shop together crap aside, I don't appreciate the investment I made in the try-it pass being nulled out without any compensation. Unlike VIP it was a one time permanent purchase, not a subscription based purchase. I did without it for literally years without any actual reimbursement. They finally give us an alternative, but then give the alternative to everyone (which removes the entire point/value of purchasing it in the first place) and then they give a 'premium' experience to VIPs and stick me with all the spam that goes with the shop together non-vip experience. I didn't buy a try-it pass so I can deal with spam when I use the feature. We paid for a feature, so we should frankly be entitled to the premium features as well.

Hi, this thread has had off topic posts split to the suggestion forum. We can discuss other VIP and non vip features in the suggestion forum. IMVU posted to discuss the updated shop together feature only. The split posts can still be discussed: Here

In response to the old try it’s removal-we were paid 10,000 real credits for the loss. It was not just taken away and those members were included in the initial shop together group with VIPs and will continue to have that feature Thanks

I don't ever use this feature and would rather my VIP be used to opt-out of the annoying IMVU spam mail!

I think the title of this thread is a bit misleading

Shop Together - Better than ever AND for everyone!

Personally.. I don't care that I can invite someone or someone can invite me to try on outfits or accessories.

I buy what I like.. and I don't care if other people like it or not.. in the end it's about what I like. So it being "better" no.. it's the same.

Though I still feel that the option of trying on poses and furniture with poses should have been an EVERYONE thing. because VIP members shouldn't be the only ones able to make educated purchase decisions.

Well, I know friends who love doing just that shopping with a friend and helping each other pick out clothes. Since I was often the only friend with VIP, my friends would ask me to shop together with them. You may not like clothing suggestions, but other people do.

I didn't say other people may or may not like it.. I was just stating my own personal opinion.

Maybe something like..

Shop Together - Now for everyone!

Because this change.. some people may like and other people may not like.. so saying it's better when in fact it may not be better.. could be misleading.

As I have said previously.. I buy what I like.. so I wouldn't consider this better where as another user that really likes shopping with friends is probably happy as a clam.

I just hope that this does encourage more spending and people will not abuse it and just hang out all day and not even bother to wish list or buy anything.

10,000 real credits=10 dollars retail. (or around 5 dollars if you buy them from a reseller)

Try it pass cost=20 dollars.

The payment was not even remotely close to being appropriate considering it was YEARS since we got a replacement and NOW they just gave the replacement to everyone too. Care to tell me how they basically didn't just gank my money and not actually give me anything that is even remotely acceptably proper compensation?

Come on IMVU wheres the blue try it pass holders proper and rightful compensation now that you've gone and pulled this stunt. You really don't seem to care one little bit about how bad this makes you end up looking to paying customers who paid you money in good faith and be thrown empty promises by yourselves.

I think this was a huge kick to the face from various parts of the community.

Those that bought the try it pass.. not even compensated
Those that have asked for this in shop for quite some time

People want to talk about how the VIP lost things and should have been compensated.. where is the actual compensation for the Try It Pass Users..

And don't try to sell.. well you got 10,000 credits.. when the Try It Pass was worth 20 USD that is in my opinion not a justifiable compensation.
