IMVU please consider providing us an opt-out for animated badges!

As has already been stated by multiple users in the now locked thread for the animated badges feature animated badges can cause:

• Migraines

• Headaches

• Epilepsy

• Migraine Auras


When J0RJl's card was full of animated badges it gave Mercuria an instant headache as soon as she viewed it. How are we expected to flag non-complaint badges if viewing the cards that have them will cause us instant pain?


I'd also like to ask that we all be civil in this thread, and not accuse anyone of lying, ect.

(Mods if we aren't allowed to start a new thread on this subject then please feel free to lock.)

No. This isn't about being offended by animated badges Tangie, this is about how those badges can flash too fast or if you have too many of them on a card at one time it can cause migraines, and ect.

All of yours are within the TOS.

Edit- why would I have one of your animated badges on my card if they offended me? LOL

There's already an opt out for bright neon avatar card colors, which means imvu values customer safety. So there should be the same for flashy badges or my eyes will hurt.

They removed the neon colors sadly.

We need an opt-out to seeing the animated badges because of the harm to users with PSE, migrains and other issues. I am going to quote myself here from the official thread that is now locked.

Quote:


From the Terms of Service (TOS)

Quote:
IMVU strives to create an enjoyable place for all our users. Users must not post anything that may trigger a PhotoSensitive Epilepsy (PSE) episode for users who suffer from such symptoms. Such content includes but is not limited to flashing lights and contrasting visual patterns . Please see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photosensitive_epilepsy for more information and see our Virtual Goods Policy for additional guidelines to which you must comply.


The part I put in red:

The combination of animated badges, all going at different rates and/or directions causes contrasting visual patterns that can cause a PSE episode or other issues for the vulnerable members of this community. With no opt-out available, IMVU is once again breaking/allowing users to break the TOS guidelines for PSE in a manner that cannot be reported to CS.

Voted yes.

We should not have to ask for an opt-out, much less beg for one.

*mod hat off*

Threw up and had vertigo and migraine most of the day. Normal now but that's because I don't have any underlying medical issue.
Flashing animations are bothersome but multiple badges, all flashing and going at different FPS rates was a sensory overload.

I'm glad I looked so that I could understand the effects.

Back to bed with me now! Goodnight Smile

Feel better and GN. It gets to me starting at about half a canvas of flashing badges and I don't have underlying medical issues either. I can only imagine how those who do have medical issues are feeling.

I voted yes.

My reasons, because this is something to protect those with various illnesses, myself included. I have 5 close friends who could really use the opt-out option and I had to warn them that when they got on IMVU to not look at avatar cards.

I honestly cannot believe we are having this discussion... AGAIN. We can already opt out from seeing avatar card wallpapers, in browser and in client, why are we fighting for this SAME exact issue again? The coding is already there, it needs to be enforced.

So, YES! 1000x YES!
