Has this been confirmed by a staff member?
Not trying to doubt your word, but I'd just like to have staff say it as well because... Customer Service is, well...inconsistent. :<


If this ends up holding true by all Customer Service and staff, then I'm going to assume that it means that 6 letters is the new minimum for names requested via help ticket or through usage of a name change token? Lovely.
They are really trying to bank on names.

There are still 4 and 5 letter names that aren't taken at all, so you can get those, but via help ticket I'm afraid not.

A friend tried getting names via help ticket - she was told all of them were being made premium.

I wouldn't put much faith in what Staff says in all honesty. It seems that CS does whatever the heck they want regardless of what the office says.

@Rum4U: Thanks for letting me know! I'll pass that on to my friends as I'm good as far as name changes go.
I just wish they would make an official list instead of constantly adding new names after they've been asked for.


@XxMissSnowyxX: Sad that is true.
I was hoping for staff to either confirm this statement or make a statement saying that it was false. That way someone could show CS staff's statement if it is the latter to maybe get them to change their tune.

First of all let me just say that those so called PREMIUM NAMES are not really Unique, second of all why are they ALL IN CAPS!? Idea And third why are they price tagged at 150k? To me those names could only be worth 50 IMVU credits to be honest. Because they are that bad and not worth that much to spend on and also they don't even make sense.

In general if you are going to sell PREMIUM names as worth as 150K of IMVU credits then put some thoughts into those names and make names that make sense and are always all in CAPS!! Geez IMVU I thought you guys were smarter than that!

A friend of mine filed a help ticket to request a name that is on an unused guest account (she has a name change token). She filed the help ticket over four days ago. Usually she only has to wait A day or two for such a name change request to go through but this time she has waited four days and the status of her help ticket is still "New." Is she going to eventually get a mysterious "We're sorry but that is a premium name" reply to her help ticket even though the name is more than six characters and there is no possible way the name she wants is on your Premium list? (We already checked just in case.)

This is so... ugh. IMVU, you are really making me mad. So regardless of it being on the Premium list or not, no names under 6 letters are available at all anymore with a NCT?

The greed, y'all.

Back when I wanted to change my name to this one, I had asked CS if I could get it with my token. They said no, then when premium names came around the first time, there it was..so I had to buy it for 100 000cr which I thought was expensive. So glad Im not planning on buying another premium name with prices from 150k-500k.
So I will assume people that wanted a name for a while will find it on the list sooner or later :/

Guys, don't even bother requesting cool names via help ticket. You're just giving them premium name ideas at this point.

I requested a name for my alt and as soon as they saw my ticket, they replied that the name has just been escalated to premium. I looked in the premium names and it wasn't there. The next day, it was.

So, yeah. Don't bother giving them any more ideas.
The greed is real.

SO disappointed in IMVU.

What's funny is that if the employees in charge of this had ANY business sense or savvy whatsoever they'd at the very least grant names to creators who have proven to make IMVU thousands of dollars already. I wanted the name to start up a business on that alt account targeting male avatar clothing. It's not the 150k/300k/500k, those are a day's profits. It's a matter of principle. This has completely robbed me of motivation to start my new business on that alt.
