Thank you all for reporting. We are in the midst of implementing a rate control if too many links are being posted by the same user in a chat room in rapid succession. There are currently some issues and we are fixing them ASAP.

Apologies for the inconvenience.

We will post an update here when the issue has been fixed.


ROFL! Is this to try to stop spammers for posting links into chatrooms for "cheap" credits?! Because, Um... yeah, they come into the room, post their crap, and then leave... they don't post it over and over.

MANY folks like to share youtube links with their friends, are you stopping them from doing so? Also, is this going to break flash products in the process too?!

This is more than just an inconvenience I'm trying to figure out IMVU's ALL crazy logic on such crap as this.

Sometimes these spammers will spam the fraudulent credit link 3 times or more in the chat before leaving.

I cleared my cache and in my private room all seemed to worked fine. Came to my public room and it all was the same, with a different error message.

(Sending too many links too fast; slow down!)

*and now it all seems to work fine, so I guess a solution is to clear cache.

We have resolved the issues and now the controls are working as intended.

If a user posts links too many times in a very short period of time (we will not be posting the details of these limits)< they will be shown an error and the links will not be shown to other participants in the room.

The rate of posting as which this control will come into play is very high and majority of our users will not be affected.

Thank you

Well that will no doubt end up being proven wrong by creators when they try linking product images for people to check out in chat. Or when a mass collection of product idea's is going on within a room both of which happen frequently.

Okay, I posted elsewhere in the forum this same problem. However, I have cleared the cache, cleared my computer and IMVU and even booted etc etc but the Sending too many links too fast: slow down still occurs. This is attached to any product that has flash embedded into it. So, therefore it is insane to try to contact each creator to find out what the issue is with their product, when it is happening multiple places, items, etc. And this just happened after it was stated that this problem is now resolved, so please advise because obviously my minions didnt get the memo of the resolution.

Problem is not solved.
This antispam feature affects all flash products on IMVU (media players, games, and similar).
All media players and games are not usable on IMVU anymore.
Everytime flash products are sending data synchronization between users, it is blocked and following message in chat box appears: "(Sending too many links too fast; slow down!)".

To fix this, all the data that is posted by flash (it can be detected by the client) should not be processred by antispam feature.
This is the way that flash products synchronize between users and there is nothing to do with the products.

Never seen a spammer post more than 2 or 3 links. This feature is useless, yet broke various flash games and players. How is that "solved"? This is, pardon the pun, game breaking. Rolling Eyes

Yeah this is exactly what happened in my chat room. Imagine 10 people spamming "(spam limited)" until we booted them. The only way it would go away is if you reloaded IMVU. IMVU did admit that they caused the issue via chat agent. Today it seems to be working better, though.

No, it's not fixed. My flash products are not working, thanks to this latest decision by IMVU. So, it's NOT fixed.

This is exactly is why this change is pointless! And dare I say... STUPID!

BINGO! NAILED IT!

---------

I am HIGHLY DISPLEASED with this crap! Again IMVU breaks things! Here's a thought, DO YOUR JOB when spam is flagged! WANT to keep the MASS community protected.... SEND OUT INFORMATION TO ALL USERS periodically, and NOT just in the forums as NOT ALL of the community uses them!
