I think the narrate thing is hilarious, and I really love it. Thank you IMVU. I do wish they would give us back live chat in private rooms at least, but anyway...ty again Smile

why do some ga users think everything should be available to everyone. why not upgrade your account like vip ap users have then there wont be an issue. probably same people constantly trying all they can for free credits.

I can hopefully offer a couple answers to this question..

1. Why should users have to add an upgrade to their account that most chatting programs offer for free right out of the box? ~cough cough Skype~

2. When this was announced it was said that it would be just a VIP testing.. and considering they are parading it around when plenty of people were asking for it.. it shouldn't be a VIP and AP thing only.

If IMVU is going to go with this logic.. they should be taking down the announcement of it in the RP section considering it's in this section just fine.

Edit-

I am still a little curious about that.. why is that still in the RP forum when it's being talked about in here?

@Snowy, Skype does not have a feature like Narrate. Emoting is not the same as emoticons, although quite honestly I'd prefer emoticons over the current Narrate feature.

It must have recently been removed then.. because I looked up Skype Chat Commands and this was something that popped up

Quote:
/me [text] Your name will appear followed by any text you write. For instance, /me working from home will cause the phrase “working from home” to appear next to your name in the chat. You can use this to send a message about your activities or status.

I had no idea they had that. And now that I do know, I'm going to continue not using it.

Though (with my imagination) I've never needed this feature, this is a great addition to add to some RP scenes. Embarassed Thank you very much!

This is the first I've heard of it and I've had both AP and VIP virtually since I started playing IMVU~ none of my friends has had it either. Who are the chosen few and how are they chosen?

Ever since this came out for VIPs I have been able to see it in use by VIPs, and I have only AP. It can be used to very good effect and I like it. I'm quite happy it's now going to work for me. I always do the updates as soon as they're offered to me by IMVU. Even if I regret it afterwards when things go cockeyed.

I agree with this! i know people who have been on here for 5,6 and 7 years and have never invested a cent then go mad because they dont get the perks...

You get what you pay for IMO

I am a bit confused. I have been on here for years and have been in the Role Play community as long and I have never heard of anyone wanting this feature. We usually just type *waves* or ~waves~ or -waves- Why on earth would we want to type /me waves? Makes no sense to me as a role player. I am sure it was just another way to add something meaningless to the chat. Slightly fancy font for the narration... eh.. I am sure the new people joining will appreciate it.. thanks for the update...


It does for 3D old school RPers.

You see along time ago along side the AOLers(The T-series RP started on AOL) There were those who roleplayed in 3D online games. This was a unique series of roleplaying that existed along side the AOLers. This was turn taking no limit post. While highly organized RPers would mix it up in one massive post. Some RPs were more friendly, and did one liners. An entire action could take up the entire post in one go. This is where the happiness of being able to change the font for an action comes in. HOWEVER... This is a more lazy form that was eventually merged into a T-1 hybrid(around 2009-2010) which is far better than that older style. Those who still do the older style are quite welcome though because its the equivalent of watching an anime with chibi characters. Always a friendly styled RP.

On another note I quite like this idea alot. Glad it has been put in. I just hope I will get to see an RPer using this some day.
