Ditch those stupid mannequins altogether. They look crap and will never show all products at their best no matter how many Band-aids IMVU throw at them.

I am just curious for anyone's opinion...

I would say, fix the icons.

I can't decide on just the one thing. Am very much torn between better product display (or fixing icons) and showing newest products first in designated searches, because they better reflect our current skill level than work we did 3-4 years ago.

Ditch Next entirely, roll back to Original. Everything fixed.


I agree. This can't be fixed by either or. If you fix the icons, you still have the old products up first, with nothing ever refreshing. I lean toward "fix the display order" having the bigger effect because people can still catch attention with product names. If you only see the same old things every time you open the catalog, nothing can be done to interest people in trying or buying, not even with real icons showing.

Exactly. But I still think Next should be rolled back into Beta, have the issues fixed and NOT be pushed onto the public and new users until it is 100% ready to be released. Because right now, as it is, it just wasn't ready.

been gone for a month and I come back ...you would think its gotten better but i think its worse.. since when do you have to login to the client or next to post in the forums? (i might be off topic, so if someone wants to point me to the right direction) but sales have been pretty much a mess I too have given up on deving new items ... with all the bugs motivation for me is pretty low.. but maybe thats the master plan now on IMVU

Bump

I see IMVU is displaying its typical quicksilver reflexes and omnipotence regarding this issue. Can anyone get Kip from Futurama on this issue double-quick, please?

I didn't even know this was a thing, now I'm worried, I'll have to check myself now. But do people really shop that much using IMVU next? Is that really a huge factor in overall sales?

You need to give it a bit of time. Even mine don't show up instantly, It shows up after 30 or so minutes

Yeah, I too agree with everything being posted here.

And my BF just got his IMVU account, and we couldn't even download the client ANYWHERE. Even when we went to the IMVU original website or whatever they call it, and clicked the "download" link on the grey bar, it just took us back to Next! :/

Was super annoying, I had to log out of his account, log into mine, and download it that way. And there was no intro to the client for him either, you know how they walk you though whats what... nothing. :/ Feels like they are totally leaning away from the client, and just pushing next. Cuz as far as I could tell, there was NO WAY, what so ever, for a new user to even know the client exists. Sad Its super sad.


If this is happening that really blows, because eventually IMVU WILL try and ditch the client completely. I hate NEXT, everything about it :/

I have also seen that my older items from two years ago are selling better than newer items, which is insane.

That is kind of the point.

In the client shop and in the web shop, products are displayed via "Best Match" as a default BUT you can change it to display the newest products first.

You do not have that option in Next. In fact, you don't even have the "Best Match" option in Next.

PostPosted: Mon Jul 04, 2016 1:36 am    Post subject: Bad Policies = Bad Quality Decisions. Reply with quote

Hello all,

I must say i enjoy reading all of the posts here. It just seems to me that with every new thing that IMVU comes out with, whether it be a new update to the 3d chat program to IMVU Next, one things comes to my mind when i read about it later... bad policy = bad quality decisions. When IMVU comes up with new rules, they are sometimes as bad as some of the 3d chat program updates. They say they listen to us creators, but do they really? When the Cash For Creating (as I call it) Program came out, you should have seen the fur flying all over IMVU. That fell like a lead weight with a lot of creators.

The last bad decision they made, which they maintain was for a good reason, was the demise of the third party creator program. This decision took away discount credits that was originally for the creators to keep creating products for the shop.
And who can forget the decision to do away with the message part of the 3d client and redirect it to the IMVU website's message area? Thank God they listened and put it back where it belonged. That was ONE time i can remember in recent history that they ACTUALLY listened to us. We all weren't asked if we wanted to get cash for our creations, which are paid one penny per dollar or 1% per 1000 credits! REALLY?!? Who came up with that? You are not required to file a 1099, even though you will get one, for any income that is below $400. Stop wasting our time! If you want to help, bring back the 3rd party creator program please! Do you realise how many items you'd have to create to clear that threshold? Please!
Okay, i am done ranting now. I am sure we haven't seen the last of weird policies and decisions. Stay tuned!

There was a good reason for Resellers to go and that's a change in the US tax laws that IMVU has to comply with. The resellers won't be back because some were overseas and IMVU has to prove tax info for creators making money off of here to the IRS. They didn't just get rid of resellers for the fun of it.

Wicked,

Tax laws might be a good reason to discontinue a practice that was once very popular, but on the note of the tax laws, foreign countries have VAT or something similar. Maybe i am missing the point, but it seems taxes kill a LOT of things that benefit others. At the risk of sounding political, they should have never taxed online games. That is a monumental headache to apply to a company that deals in intellectual and digital property. Leave it to our bureaucrats to kill things for those just trying to have fun. The mistake was made when they came up with the cash program for creators. Let's be reasonable... 1% per each $1 or 1000 credits? Was that worth the resellers sites being taken down? Going back on topic, Next should be taken down and the issues worked out. It is a creator's nightmare.
