UPDATE ON 12/14/2015: The test has now concluded. Client Inbox is available to all users.

UPDATE ON NOV 10: If you are on client version 522.24 or up, you might be in the test segment. Half of the customers will be shown the current client Inbox while the other half will be re-directed to the website Inbox (for messages and notifications)

UPDATE ON NOV 04

Starting with our next client pre-release (522.20 and up), there is a change to the way you access your IMVU messages, missed chat invites and friend requests - they will all now be available on the IMVU website.

With 522.20 pre-release, when you click on the client Inbox, you will be automatically directed to the website (just like you are if you click on the Photo Stream or Groups mode button). There will be a dialog shown explaining the change the first time you do so.

You already have access to your messages on that page and now you will have an additional tab called "Notifications" which will have your friend requests, group requests, and missed chat invites.



There is no changes to the Messages tab on the web page - you can choose to view your messages in the new "conversation" style view or the classic style view.



All your messages that you have not deleted or archived are still there - only on the website instead of in the client Inbox.

If you get a pop-up notification about a received message while in the client, they will also lead you to the web inbox.

Get Matched Notifications will now be shown within the Get Matched feature in the client.

Why the change?

We are consolidating the two different types of messaging systems we are maintaining in the backend to make the experience streamlined and efficient.

We hope this also makes it easier for all of you to know that all your messages and notifications are in one place - where you also have the choice to use the conversation style messaging system.

I will update here when the client version with this change is available for downloading.

Thank you

I am still just waiting for a simple answer to:

If this whole thing is supposed to be more streamlined and efficient..

WHY are the Get Matched notifications staying on the client but everything else is getting moved over to the web.

Correct me if i'm wrong.. please.

BUT

Friend NOTIFICATIONS are getting moved over to the web right?

So why not Get Matched too?

Probably because it is more efficient to have everything relating to Get Matched in one place, just like it would be more efficient if you know all the stuff relating to the client like you know messages and such on the client too.

it'd be great it imvu could put back the client and stop making dumb ideas.

to be honest, i thought that imvu would of put the client inbox back and just left it alone.

also, i don't want to be a "test subject" for a good chunk of imvu's ideas.

luckily, in the past, imvu has done good things.

You can still use the inbox in the newest client on your computer press

Windows key + r and paste without the quotes

imvu:showMode?mode=inbox



It will open up your inbox! in the client, and no we should not need to do this IMVU ♥♥♥ you all! My Friends & Family here, but bring the real inbox back! -Blazeord

Untill I'm forced to update, I'll stay on an older version. Safe from all this madness. And when forced to change... I will use that code. Thanks. Smile

IMVU, as a paying customer.. I WANT the inbox BACK IN the Client. Thank you.

I agree.
As a long time paying customer of IMVU, I would like to say, that the staff needs to realize that your customers don't like the changes.

But too bad that's not going to happen.
Because IMVU clearly doesn't care about their customers.

I've been reading about this along with a lot of forum threads with the little free time I've had over the last few days, and what I want to know the most is how exactly removing inbox functionality from the client makes the messaging system 'efficient'.

Efficiency for something like IMVU would be having pretty much everything located in one place, right? Right. So separating almost the entire private messaging system from the actual client itself accomplishes...what, exactly?

Thread number 2 and still no reply from the Team yet.

amazing how the messages in the client are starting to glitch and freeze for a moment while the advert block changes, all since the update. trying to make the client inbox inconvenient now to make people want to use the browser? its not going to happen people. not here.

This browser message system is nothing short of a nuisance and aggravation. Its ok if we are not on the client but if we are it is just pointless and no good for creators when people want them quickly.

I will not update.

Dont forget those who dont know, there are links in the old thread to downloads for going back to pre update versions if you need your inbox back as it was.

Welp, there you have it kids. IMVU has no plans of bringing the Client Inbox back and does not give a damn towards what you, the users and many of which PAYING users, think about it.

If they did this announcement would be about the Inbox returning, seeing how the last one gained over 100 pages and over 1000 negative replies towards the removal of the Inbox.

If you wish to keep Inbox on your Chat Client without having to put in some fancy button code, Download this version of IMVU.
DO NOT UPDATE!

http://static-akm.imvu.com/imvufiles/installers/InstallIMVU_522.0.exe



Also if you'd like a "Bring Inbox Back" profile picture, here is an easy way to make one.
http://www.imvu.com/catalog/modules.php?op=modload&name=phpbb2&file=viewtopic.php&t=550340

P.S. I like many, will NOT update to any of the latest versions of IMVU until Inbox is back where it's meant and should be.

And if I am to be forced to update eventually, consider me one of the thousands to leave.

I also refuse to purchase anymore credits, benefits, or shop items until Inbox returns. I will not feed the wallets of the jerks running IMVU into the ground!

Thank you!

They're cowards and obviously didn't pay attention in class when taking Customer Service or something similar. Smh. I bet they're all just having a party at further destroying the client of their IMVU NEXT bullshit.

Oh look! Another thread of literally THOUSANDS of irate customers voicing their objections has begun. I'm waiting for something besides the same OP regurgitated from the last thread about the "improvement".
