I totally paused a second to answer that in my head as I was reading along lol.

But, seriously, thank you for a brilliant, and highly amusing, post.

I don't like NEXT so my opinion really won't help you, but as someone mentioned previously, it would be better if it weren't gender specific. It may have been a week since I last ended up in NEXT but I do remember it being geared toward female avatars, maybe because I am female, but I think have both genders shown for SHOP would be better.

I agree with what's been said, the thing that bugs me the most is not being able to sort by newest products. When selecting a creator I prefer to see their newest first through to their oldest. I think seeing newest products first is generally more beneficial to the creator. Personally I don't particularly want my early attempts at creating to be one of the first things seen. My skills have improved since I first started and that's reflected in my latest creations.

I do like the fluidity of the avatar though!

I was playing around with images for product icons, I don't think it would be a wise move for IMVU to implement the current creator icons onto the Next icons.

The reason why I say this is because the current icons are designed to work in a rectangle format that is slightly smaller in height than width. I believ it's like 100 wide x 80 tall. The Next icons are a square, I believe they are 150 x 150. I guess IMVU could distort the current icons to fit within those dimensions, but then you would have creators yelling at IMVU because their icons look ugly. Though at least it would be a step in the right direction.

We (creators) are aware of the different dimensions between classic icons and Next icons.

Since beta testing we have been fighting against them. We agreed back then that we would rather have our icons distorted than to use those horrible auto-generated nightmares.

Other suggestions we had:

(1) Put our icons super-imposed over the Next icon and, if they want to see the full Next icon, then they can click on it.

(2) Let us make and upload our own Next-specific icons.

(3) Change the dimensions of the Next icon (remember, this was in beta).

Etc.

The simple fact is, almost anything would be better than what we have now.

But, the icons are not the only issues with the shop in Next.

The removal of branding. The default sorting. Heck, they only just added the ability to search by creator less than three months ago.

The classic web catalog is VASTLY superior to Next. Hell, even the client catalog is vastly superior to Next.

And what happens when Next gets its own catalog (that we were told is coming)?

This is my biggest complaint with Next in general. Things in the shop look absolutely awful. Can we not just use the icons the developers made, or at least give developers the option to add some background, change the pose and actually put skin/clothes on the avatar? Maybe position the avatar so the product can actually be seen?

IMVU needs to stop pushing Next on new users and shoving it in current users faces when the shop tab is only half finished. Shopping is hard and less fun, there is less incentive to actually buy anything. Especially when half the icons don't even display the product! Creators are missing out on potential sales because of the crappy Next icons. Next is HURTING creators this very second. If IMVU gave two ***** about their creator community like they claim, they would have taken care of this BEFORE releasing it to the public. There has been PLENTY of time to fix the icons since then, but for some reason Photobooth and Kimojis were a bigger priority. Wtf?

As for featured creators on the landing page, is it too much to ask that you guys check and make sure that none of the creators are infamous for stealing and getting banned numerously for copyright/trademark theft? There are so many HONEST, talented, genuine creators... it shouldn't be hard. What a giant slap in the face. I expect nothing less from IMVU. I'm not even disappointed anymore, just numb.

And something I noticed yesterday, when viewing the product card (which is the only way to see who created the product) the creator's original icon is shown but it's tiny and chopped off.



Seriously, how hard could it have been to just include the icon at full size on this card?

Sad for us all, I hate being forced and having to use work arounds to use IMVU on the website as it is for me I have now dubbed IMVU website the forgotten step child. Now NEXT is well annoying. The icons are so ugly, shopping for me now is null and void especially from NEXT. Makes my eyes hurt so much trying to see so tiny and so basic, plain and blinding white. Whomever thought of this well if it were me, well fired is the word comes to mind. It has been quite an experience after x years but always we are the forgotten ones when it should not be this way. Understanding new fresh members are needed but why forget your loyal players, followers, supporters. I see this as backward thinking and I feel sad for this very much so and am still hopeful that this will be reversed at least let us keep what we have now add away on NEXT but do not remove the features we as loyal players are asking that it not be taken away. It's a New Year think out the box. Thanks!

"Featured creators"
>Same old already established and advertised creators. (Don't get me wrong, these creators are great, but you keep advertising those who already have a huge following.)
>pretends all users are equal when some of us aren't even existing in the search tool.

Along with Searching, we are featuring creators on the landing page!

One really cool feature is it is gender centric meaning that if you are a male you will be shown male products and, of course, females will see female products.

Again, we haven't figured out the details about how to handle the page and also, as this is a work in progress, we'd love to hear your ideas for how you would like to be featured.

So go out and take a look and give us your thoughts.


Just a passing thought for featuring more... Is there a way to capture the person's last shopping experience Recommended Products? Show them someplace or on the Featured Page off to the side.
I like this idea but does need to be to side of page because last time you did recommended sales got on a lot of peoples nerves because was coming up and hiding half of stuff available in catty and you couldn't turn it off it annoyed a lot of players but if its as its shown here it could be cool
Posting a few new / similar recommended items. Also, visually give (icons) for easy access to anything they left in the shopping cart.

Also, give easy access to more than just your credits balance similar to on the regular shop page. Why Not? Maybe I am shopping for a different gender than default. Maybe I am on a budget and need to limit prices shown, etc.

Add this on the lower left side under the featured banner. Same as on regular shopping pages. The Creators search would be not be needed...

The icons in shop could be much better

i agree 100% with this

You mean the landing page for the Shop? Home looks just the same as always to me.

Apparently I don't exist as a creator. I typed my name into the Creator search box and it said no matches found. I tried a few others and they all came up. Just not me. I do like how it starts coming up with results as you type though - good for devs with long or hard to spell names.

The regular search seems to work though.

I would reeeeeeally like to have sorting options (newest, price, hottest, best rating).

Also the price filter, the options are way to big. Most things in the catalogue are under 1000 credits, so 0-1000 is a bit useless. It should at least have 0-500, 500-1000.

And can we pretty please have a search for Dress Up too? It's impossible to find anything without it.

I just remembered we're supposed to be talking about the landing page haha. I agree with LW - feature accessories, eyes and skin too.

I think the featured spots are too big. I guess on a phone it would be fine for a browser (which I am using) it looks too big. Some of the edges look a tat pixely because of it. It does look very much made for mobile. Also I'm a bit unsure about the tinting/lighting. I know it's very trendy right now but it sorta clouds the products a bit. Personal choice here, but I prefer products to be shown clearly.

Speaking of showing products clearly - icons!!!!! Have I mentioned how much I hate them? They just show products terribly and half the time you can't even see what the product is. I know you can see the creator's icon when you click on the dotdotdot, but it's tiny and cropped.
