A Terrible terrible terrible idea. All this does protect the stalkers and head gamer's. And don't say just flag them. I went thru the stalker issue with you folk's, the same person with 4 alts (proven) and you did nothing. This makes meeting new friends and people that much harder because you can't trust anyone. Well done IMVU, cheers!!

I Feel Like This Is Going To End In Having More Negative Results Than Positive Ones. I Mean, Sure.. You Can Now SPEND MORE MONEY Changing Your Name Again, To Get Away From These Stalkers, Or Whatever Else.. But If You're One Of Those People Who Have A Good Name That They WANT To Keep, Like Me, This Is Only Going To Bring Negativity. In This Particular Situation That I Use As An Example, It Could End In Someone Quitting IMVU Or Deleting The Account All Together, Just To Get Away From It.

The Irony In All Of This Is That I Had To Find Out About This Because I Was Trying To Find Out Who Someone On My Friends List Is, That Changed Their Names. I Go To The Site Only To See A Link That Takes Me To This Forum. I Still Don't Know Who This Person Is Very Happy


A Poll Asking How People Feel About This Can Be Found In My Siggie. Someone Mentioned A Poll And I'm Curious.

Congratulations, IMVU. You've just promoted stalking.

Well, on the one hand....

For those who change their names, it is their right to inform their friends of a name change. And it's really not anyone else's business of what their name used to be.

On the other hand,

This could easily bite everyone in the rear end as stalkers and harassers will now use this as means to continue stalking their victims if they don't already have such people on their block list.

This pretty much a double-edged sword.


Hi,

I am of the same opinion. Therefore a pedophile (because there are young people on IMVU) or any other bad person may do evil with impunity. Simply just that it changed nickname to no longer be spotted. It's sad

Also, people can see the name change of the person IF and only IF they have them on their blocked list. Favoring stalkers still. I was a stalker until now as I block if I don't want them to continue arguing with me over nothing or for any other reason, then after a while, I unblock knowing they're not gonna reply now because they'll think they're still blocked. So, I'm one of the ones who got bit in the rear end, but it doesn't really bother me. I'm not upset or anything. Stalkers will still stalk no matter what. JS.

If you have stalkers then block them. Make your own room and hang out in there. If stalker comes on another account then block that too. Blocked people cannot join the room that you own! Plus, remember that you're on the internet so you want it or not you will have stalkers. Checking stalkers name change log makes you a stalker also! Reading all those comments about you all being stalked non stop every day makes me laugh... I been on Imvu for 5 years and I never had any creepy stalkers or bullies... Maybe I am lucky?Maybe... But if you don't want to be stalked then simply cut your internet off. As I said you are on the internet and you will have stalkers you want it or not. So all this crying that now you won't be able to stalk your stalker is stupid...

Gee, you want to explain to *** victims while you're at it that its really their fault?

Edit: IMVU auto-***ed out my word. I'll just say it rhymes with ape and leave it at that.

So make a room and stick urself in it day in and day out so that stalkers cant get to u?? when imvu is for room hopping and finding others with like interests and meeting new people. Yes very boring. How about the name change log be turned bk on and we can check if it is a stalker or someone we prefer to not hang out with due to they are drama or what not. I personally dont really have to bad a issue with stalkers, however, there are certain people i like to avoid cause i dont like their drama. I do know others with stalkers, generally exs that cant get over stuff or ex family that cant let go, etc, and it sucks that the solution is (stick urself in a room u made and never leave it cause ur only safe there). That is really a great imvu experience for them i bet. Sad

So checking their name change log will save you from the stalker? I wonder how... Stalking a stalkers name change log makes you a stalker too!

Checking a name change log isn't stalking. If you believe that, then you must believe using google to look up an address is stalking. Stalking is a series of actions that leave a person feeling harassed, afraid or worse. Checking a name change log is keeping informed, and is as legitimate as looking up a person's aliases in real life, which is a matter of public record when it comes to legal name changes. People have the right to remain vigilant in an online world where most of the rules favor stalkers, who hide behind anonymity which is next to impossible to pierce for non-governments.

Checking their name change log wont save you from a stalker at all! Stalker can come at you on billion other accounts. If you get harassed every day on Imvu then probably you're hanging out with the wrong people in the first place. All you can do is block them and don't pay them any attention at all and don't mix the real life with an internet... Maybe because you living Imvu as your real life might be why you have issues... If some one would ever come at me I'd simply ignore them... I know those people won't meet me in real life, won't be my friends so I don't even bother paying attention to them.

Again, nice blaming the victim. And until you've experienced it, have had someone worm their way into your life so thoroughly and then turn from Jekyll into Hyde, have them come at you from through your friends, go at your friends to get to you when they can't get to you, run to other online groups spreading lies to get third parties to harass you, use every social media trick in the book to strike out at you - you will never understand. I have seen people devastated by online stalkers, and don't give anyone that 'you were hanging out with the wrong people' crap. How many people in real life are stalked by their exes? It is the same online! And by the time the breakup happens, they know how to get at you in so many ways that it can take months or years to cut them out completely.

My point is that checking a name change log won't save you from your stalker and that's about it. You can have billion excuses and explanations but the fact is still the same that you won't be saved from your stalker by checking their name.
