It is not always a matter of being scared of a person.There is not a single person on my block list that I am scared of. I just don't want them around me, mostly because of a complete lack of manners.

I want this feature because the block on IMVU does not do it's job.
Regardless of the reason for a block, if you block me I should not be able to :

Message you even on the forums.
Visit your homepage.
Pull up your rooms.
Visit your rooms.
Pull up your avi card in using any of the IMVU supplied tools.
Whisper to you in other people's rooms.

When you block someone, they shouldn't be able to tell that your profile or avatar even exist. Right now, even if you have someone blocked, they can still TRY to invite you to a chat and they will show up under "missed chat invites." That's completely unacceptable. You shouldn't have to deal with someone constantly trying to harass you from their main account because blocking means almost nothing. But we all know that IMVU really doesn't take our privacy, safety, or security seriously... It's all about the money. Who knows, maybe "better blocking" will become a VIP only feature...

I feel like if they were listening, the staff I mean, they would make a response to this suggestion AND issue. Obviously, it's a very serious topic that needs to be dealt with. Especially since this topic has been going on for almost a year and still no reply. I understand there's just a few forum moderators to go around, but that doesn't mean these serious issues should be ignored.

Perhaps IMVU staff doesn't really care about our suggestions? Smile

I'm saying this to even see if they'll read it. Wink If they do read this, my question to you as a staff member, what will you do to help with this issue?

I agree with everything said here. However, I also believe that something should be added where when you block a user, it blocks their IP address from any access to you. Therefore, even if they create another account to get to you, they still cannot access anything, or see status, etc.

I truly feel that the block feature should permanently block THAT PERSON, not just that account.

This is what IMVU needs to be working on instead of 3D stickers. Honestly, where are the priorities?

Stalking and harassment is real and serious, on the internet or not.
I have a serious crazy person right here on IMVU that is stalking me and trying to slander my name everywhere and getting room owners to block me by telling lies, it however does not stop there. This person creates new id's constantly and it is unnerving to say the least. I was in a friends room the other night when my stalker walked in, my friend was not around to boot him, and I refuse to hide my room location from my friends, but I do want it hidden from this sick person that has nothing better to do than call ppl names and put real life into chat, have I flagged this stalker? Yes.
Give me a list so I can choose what the users see who I have blocked and can't see.
I am on IMVU to have fun not to run and hide from someone that has a unhealthy infatuation with me.
I do not want blocked users to see what is on my avatar card.
I do not want blocked users to see what room I am in.
I do not want blocked users to see what is on my homepage.
I do not want blocked users to see my rooms.
In short....I want to become a ghost to the ppl I have blocked on IMVU.

Amen to all of you!!!

I haven't come to the forums before, but am being horribly harassed, and the block feature does not work for me either!! I hold weekly meetings, and if I block him, my stalker will harass all the guests - until they LEAVE!! ...demanding they arrange a meeting with me, to "refriend." So I won't block him again, for their sakes!! I would, if he could not see and harass guests in my rooms!!

~ In short, the block feature does NOT work!!! ~

A blocked person should NOT be able to see and harass your guests - let alone find out where you are and follow you there, any time you leave the protection of your own rooms!!

When I got Here, on advice given me in live chat to do so, I could NOT BELIEVE that this has been an issue for so long, and yet uncorrected, by IMVU!!

WHAT WILL IT TAKE FOR YOU TO CARE, IMVU!!?!?!?

I am tempted to leave here, like the last person he stalked into extinction has done...

( old english voice)

YES! WE SHALL NOT HIDE WHETHER IN FEAR OR UNCOMFORT FROM THESE PEOPLE WHO HAVE ACCESS TO WHERE WE STAND(chats), WHAT WE WRITE (pulse/MSG) , AND WHAT WE HAVE (our creations)!

WE WHO ARE THE PEOPLE SHOULD BE GIVEN THESE RIGHTS! FOR NOT ONLY OUR PROTECTION BUT FOR OUR FREEDOM TO ROAM WHERE WE PLEASE AND LET OUR FELLOW FRIENDS SEE WHERE WE ROAM TO GATHER!

IF WE SIMPLY DISABLE THE FEATURE TO SHOW WHERE WE ARE, THAT HAS BEEN GIVEN TO EACH INDIVIDULE AS A RIGHT, WE ARE ONLY PUNISHING OURSELFS! WE ARE HIDING A IMVU GIVEN RIGHT! AND THAT MY FRIEND IS DISGRACEFULL!

WE WHO ARE THE PEOPLE DO NOT HAVE POLICE! WE WHO ARE THE PEOPLE CANNOT BE KILLED ON HERE EITHER! GIVE US THIS RIGHT TO PROTECT OURSELFS OR WITNESS YOUR DECLINE IN POPULATION!! FOR THOSE WHO ARE SCORNED AND HAS LEFT MAY REST IN PEACE!

Well this is my first official post in the forums. So please forgive me in advance if I make a mistake or break a rule.

Well I must say first this forum has sum great insight into this topic. as of now I am at a peaceful period with others on imvu. but i have had my share of stalkers. One even threatened my life by claiming she was gonna hire a hitman because it was either me or no one XD I mean that was 5 months ago. I'm still here. All talk to scare people. Tho I have no clue if the block feature works or not. but they can still see ur homepage. THAT I DO KNOW

If you dont want users to view your homepage there are codes here:

DENY ACCESS TO VISITORS BY AVATAR ID

http://gaf210.imvustylez.net/codes/various/lang-eng

**If you don't know the user's avatar ID use the generator here:

http://gaf210.imvustylez.net/codes/generators/links-lang-eng


I know most know how to do this. But maybe this will help any newbies out there.

Let's keep IMVU a safe and enjoyable enviroment for all.

Have a great stay Smile

Much ♥

My account has about 6 years I left IMVU about 3 or 4 years, Im back now and can't believe the block system still the same, nothing has changed.

If I block someone I shouldn't be able to read none of their chat conversation, not recieving any letter and not be able to locate him and he as well.

There are people that go into a room and just start to insult everybody, I don't care much if they insult me I can manage that, but its very offensive when they do against womans, this is like permitting the abuse against woman, this should be a important threat for IMVU.

Also, there are people who just start to repeat words and don't let people chat comfortably, they have to stop the chat box and start reading the bubbles, this is wrong, and the worst thing is when all the people abandon a room when these kind of people go inside.

And one recommendation I will add at this proposal is: Why blocking? let people choose between:
harassment, offensive words, bad behavior or even hackers. Because sometimes there are people who says they know how to hack IMVU.

Are u expecting the day womens dress with pink t-shirts with words saying ''Stop abuse against woman''?

How many votes does IMVU needs on this threat to make this complaint possible?

Question

PD: Sorry if my letter don't fit the requirements, its my first time posting here.

First of all, welcome back to IMVU Smile
Now I would like to point out that if you do block someone, they can not send you messages, gifts, credits. So if the person you blocked is able to do this you will need to file a help ticket but make sure first that you did block the person cause sometimes we think we block but then we don't bu sheer accident.
Now if you do not want to be located by anyone, you can turn off your room locator and you can also make yourself unsearchable on IMVU under the "Find Someone". All these settings will be under your account.
As per regards to ppl entering rooms and being offensive, using vulgar language and attacking other users, IMVU has their flagging tool system, so you can flag the whole chat and it will be sent to staff.
You also state that ppl repeat words (flooding) you can flag this as well. Contact the room owner about the disruptive person. Send a message to the room owner so they are aware of someone causing trouble in their rooms.
Also the flag tool is a multi tool, so when someone states they are a "hacker" staff will see the whole chat and treat it according. If someone was "flooding" the room and the chat got flagged then staff will see the whole chat and again treat it according.
I know for a fact that staff does take action, even though we may not see it, or feel like it so many times.

I will however say that it would be nice to be able to when you block someone ..... to block them out of your IMVU "life" completely. No viewing your avatar card, no viewing your homepage, be unable to see your rooms, unable to see your room location even if you have it turned on (though you can only see a persons room location via avatar card so if they can't see the avatar card then they won't see your room location).

Some ppl do become uncomfortably obsessive with other ppl. I would know this first hand since I have my pack of haters, stalkers and crazy's running around spreading rumors or posting inaccurate things about me on other third party sites.

So dear IMVU, give this suggestion some thought, there is a lot of promise here and personally I feel a massive way to resolve a lot of conflict, drama and that leads to less flagging, which in the end makes for more happy chatters and less hate flagging you have to go through that might not even be grounded.

I agree, IMVU needs to make major improvements with the block usage. It's not really effective at blocking people. The only thing you can do is disable them from messaging you. They need to step it up.

See I'm all for this
BUT you could just talk to the room owners of the rooms and ask them to just boot him...

I feel your anger. So don't get me wrong. There are just ways around this problem.
