I wanted to share some news about me with you all. After more than six and a half years of fun on IMVU, I will be leaving for an exciting opportunity that has landed in my lap.

You may not know this but I am a Molecular Biologist by training with Operations and Customer Relations background. Before IMVU, I in fact worked at 23andMe which is a personal genetics company. Another local biotech company - a start-up - is working on developing a DNA sequencing based test for over 5000 pathogens for Infectious Diseases patients. I will be heading their operations and client services function - combining my passion for Science (yes even more than my passion for all things purple) and my career experience. It is simply too good of an opportunity for me to pass up so I am taking it.

I had given my official notice to IMVU almost 2 weeks ago and have been working on transitioning my responsibilities to other members of the IMVU team. I have also given a heads up to all the forum moderators as of last week. Now its time to tell you all! My last day here at IMVU is Friday, August 19th so I am still around for the next 10 days.

I am truly going to miss the IMVU community - the people who work with me here in the office as well as all the moderators, helpers, greeters, beta testers, and everyone else! Don't be surprised if I peek into the forums and post once in a while! Of course, I am always an IMVU Inbox message away.

I have loved my time here - and that has been mainly because of you and your engagement with our service. I love the way you have fun here, make friends, participate in lively discussions about IMVU or non-IMVU related topics, and share your creativity. I am amazed and inspired by it daily and will truly miss it all.

Please feel free to reach me privately or in this thread if you have any questions or concerns.

So who is going to be the new community manager?

I bet this is the first question on everyone's mind! The answer is we do not yet have a name as we have started the search but it takes a bit of time to find just the right candidate for the job. The minute we hire one, he/she will be coming in here to introduce themselves.

Of course that does not mean you will be experiencing much of a difference in how you use our community forums. Our moderators continue to do what they do so well and they will be supported by multiple people from the IMVU team (product managers, quality control engineers, creator program manager, and more). We expect this to be very short-term as the search started over a week ago.

We are also planning to implement other interim options to make the liaison between forums participants and IMVU more efficient. Stay tuned for those details!

Other questions/rumors/concerns I want to address up-front - I will update this post as needed.

Is Varsha really one person? Or are there many Varshas taking turns posting here?

There is only one Varsha!

Does Varsha like Purple in RL too or just in IMVU?

Definitely everywhere - in and out of IMVU!

Did Varsha get fired?

Funny... of course not!

Is IMVU is shutting down?

No. By the way for future reference since his question comes up regularly in the forums, there are many independent sources you can use to verify that IMVU is not shutting down As stated above, I am only leaving to pursue sort of her dream job - science + startup stage of the company

Are forums going away?

No.. you can continue to enjoy them as always.

What about the contests that are currently on?

They will be handled by me during my time here and by an IMVU team member after my departure.

Woah, I had the 23andme kit on my online wishlist for a while but they had to follow some stupid rule and not allow it in my state. They recently put it back again and I'm so excited about buying it. One of my friends got one and let me see all the information that came back, it was pretty cool.

Thank you for your time with us, and good luck on your new adventure!

Congratulations, Varsha. I wish you nothing but the best on this new and exciting opportunity. Best of luck, always.

And, sorry for being such a colossal pain in the ass. Ok, kinda sorry. Wink

Not sure I can imagine an IMVU without Varsha to be honest.

Thank you for everything.
