This is a bad idea ... Lets help the stalkers and harassers ... I've been harassed by a person and I've reported it NOTHING has ever been done He even wished me death and NOTHING was done ... So yes lets all be happy and joyous that IMVU will cover all the trouble makers tracks !!! Confused


I had one insult my country, my president, make all sorts of sexual demands, call me various names that rhyme with 'smore' - nothing I could not handle. What boggled my mind was that when I reported him, one of his friends had the audacity to write me and threaten legal action against me for harassment!

the feature "name change history' helps me to keep track of their past. i understand that a person wants a fresh start, like me at times so no one won't figure out who i am so they would stop bothering me, but.......... this is useful mostly towards role play so that the person who got kicked out can't try to come back in with a changed name, along with everyone else that caused problems with me and my family/friends. i will block a person when they become a problem, so, without the 'name change history' to look at, i won't know if it's the same person causing problems. i guess i will have to BLOCK everyone that caused one little problem. blocking is kinda extreme and sometimes not necessary. maybe later down the road, the whole imvu would be on my block list because it will be hard to trust anyone. thanks to imvu, they have the upper hand now to continue causing problems.

i don't care what some of you [ the ones that are against this] say, we have our own reasons why this 'name change history' is useful to us just like you have reasons why it's not useful to you. so please, don't question us on what our reasons are and why. we don't need to explain ourselves to you even tho we have explained enough why this 'name change history' is usefull to us. this is a forum on opinions and thoughts, and hopefully suggestions that IMVU can use to benefit us all.

thanks to the a-blahs of imvu, we [people like me] will live in fear on imvu. again, imvu needs to come up with ways to stop these people on our block list to pop in a room [that isn't our own] we are in. imvu needs to come up with a way for us to keep this 'name change history' feature. like some suggested, an opt-in/opt-out thing. let us choose to show the name change history. when name have changed, do an automatic mass message to friends of the name change. yes, a friend should tell you of the name change. it would be the right thing to do, but not all that much of a friend if they don't. but if they are your true friends, you should know of their name changes. but with some people that has HUNDREDS people on their friendlist, it would be hard to know who is who. they might not all be friends. they can be acquaintances, customers, other artists, who ever they are. imvu can add a fearture to the friendlist. CATAGORIES. a way to sort thru the people on our friends list. like the way we can make our own in the inventory of clothing.

sorry this is a repeated post, but.... it's annoying when people want to question on how this 'name change history' is needed or not needed. it's none of your concern actually, just state your opinion, thoughts, and suggestions about the removal of this 'name change history'. please stop questioning us. and stop telling us "if you can't handle it, LEAVE". this is OUR home and every right to be here just as much as everyone else. in the real world, the person would get arrested for harassing us. imvu is suppose to be our security and safety, but it fails every time.

You want an opt out/in for the name change history?

That goes against everything you said earlier. What makes you think the stalkers won't hide their name changes?

Hey, all of us used the feature one time or another, but to some it's an invasion of privacy and to others it's a threat. We all have to live with IMVU's decisions, whether we agree or not, so I only suggest that you flag and block if people are harassing you and maybe give some thought to WHY you seem to be a victim.

Also, to add to what Brayden said, keep track of their User ID #'s those never change no matter how many times they change their name.

Is it time consuming? Yes, but if you really want to protect yourself, then you should have been keeping track of the UID#s from the get go.

I don't think looking at the link would count as using it.. for the longest time I never even knew it was there until someone I knew mentioned it.

I also don't know if I would count checking it out on your own account as really using it for what people choose to use it for.

So nope.. to check up on other people.. nope I have never used it for that purpose. I used it one time to check out my own account.

word.
you tell 'em xD
na I can't do other than agree really

hey I use to joke around about that you should wath your door (chatroom ofc) with a shotgun in your hands and shoot meanies in their feet. hell imvu just made that joke into reality. (well as real imvu can get, but you understand my point I hope)

and well as other said too, the name change log has helped alot of ppl to get contact with ppl you used to have contact with, or even became friend with one you never thought you would become friend with. but also to make sure that ppl who hurt you won't come close.

just as these chain pulses say "there is a real person with real feelings behind every avatar" well guess what guys, that's true

some of us "real ppl" got problems with trusting others, our reasons are many, and they're non of your buissness. but they're there

and I can't help getting angry at imvu for doing this, cuz well as many have said, it makes it easier for stalkers and meanies to do their thing, earlier they had to make new accounts, and nw accounts cost if you want them to have ap and to make them look like "non stalker"ish now they can just change their name and get some new stuff in the shop or toss together somethin old to a new look and continue their terroring of others

and well if ppl really want a new fresh start, go make a new account and stay off ppl you used to hang with, and probably try to get a different name as possible
like others said, the uid will always be there, so a nw account would be the best way,

and yea rpers changes their names alot, well some does atleast, and it is hard to keep track on all ppl becuz of that, alos when you got alot of friends on your list or been on a break and come back to almost a whole new friendlist cuz of name changes, you can feel like you're a bad friend for not "knowing your friends" and have to ask who they are, atleast I do,
and well if you got alot of friends maybe you don't got time to send them all a msg telling them you changed your name

I'm on the fence with this one. I rarely use it unless some unknown pops up on my friends list and I want to see who it use to be so I don't delete them. I do understand the concerns though.


This is my issue....I sometimes check a new name out to see if its an old contact/friend I want to keep as opposed to some spur of the moment add I accepted and later wish to delete

This is a great idea!

If you want to find out who someone is there is still a way to do it.


Just a questions though.....when are you going to remove the link to the friends list?

.


Just to clarify, i was referring to : http://gaf210.imvustylez.net/codes/gadgets/name-change-finder-lang-eng

When i said there was another way. This is no longer valid either because IMVU has removed it.

I understand all these "respect someone's privacy thing", but as many said, I don't agree with this and I don't see anything good coming from it.
I don't want thieves and stalkers going around freely without me or everyone else not knowing who they are, I'd feel paranoid and annoyed for not being able to know if that person is someone who's been stealing or stalking/harassing me and/or other people.
Absolutely disagree with one more of the many bad decisions you guys take without consulting the community.

the option to opt-in/opt-out isn't my idea, i said as some suggested it. i'm being fair to everyone here and going with what everyone says. it's not my suggestion.

and it's just like real life, someone comes to you, it's impossible for them to try to hide who they are unless they did a whole face change with a plastic surgeon. this is no different on having the 'name change history'.

and again, the flag and block does not help at all. please stop questioning on how i feel about this feature being taking away. you got your opinions, i got mine. leave it to that

why do you have to be reminded that the purpose of a forum is to give our[ the imvu community] opinions in the hope of changing or improving something that needs it, saying we have to live with it is saying thanks for wasting your time on this forum, imvu doesn't care, and once again why some one feels victimized is knows as a state of mind caused by anxiety which is not a reason to why they should agree to imvu changes without putting foreword their mind neither is it a reason enough for one to leave imvu, so while you cant really understand what goes in the mind of one prone to anxiety how about not focus your comments on it, cos you seem to be victimizing them now.we are trying to give suggestions and looking for a way to come to agreement with imvu, if someone puts light on someones suggestion to an opt out/in for the name change history they are doing whats called trying to meet half way.

I have a friend who used the Name Change History to check up on who was on her 14 year old daughter's friends list.

Y'all say you care about the safety of kids on this site and that parents should keep track of what their kids do online, yet you remove a tool to make it easy for them to do so just because some folks whine about an invasion of privacy?!

IMVU makes dumb moves all the time, but this one is up there in the Top 5. Rolling Eyes
