This should have been fixed before you opened the submissions. Great opportunity? Not at all. I will not get blinded by fake glitter to cover up the fact that ALL room, furniture and pose makers got screwed on NEXT.


AMEN. I did most of my shopping on the stream. I'm a streamer. There is no place for me in the new Imvu.

I'm getting between 2-3 in-box ads a day with "specials" from IMVU -
And I promptly delete them. No. No, I'm not spending my money here!!

How about this... stabilize your services & make vast improvements to provide via a platform preferred by your user base.

Money. Profits. Where are the profits? The Mobile (phone) APP is FREE to download and FREE to use and new users get a TON of avatar items FREE (most of which are good quality as has been pointed out/discussed previously). The new platform NEXT is FREE to join and FREE to use and new users are given a TON of avatar items FREE.

I've used the phone app for over a year (at least) as a means to quickly check-in when no access to PC. I never receive popups for in-app purchases. So where's the money factor? I've spent NOTHING to use the mobile app and NOTHING spent to use NEXT.

VIP costs money -
I've spent money for this to have more rooms on the CLIENT and receive bonus credits, special credit sales, and get discounts on purchases. It's an on-going renewal type expense. I won't be renewing.

AP costs money -
one time only (never understood this from a business standpoint but hey, ok!!) I bought AP.

Credits costs money -
I have spent THOUSANDS of dollars over the 7+ years since becoming a part of the IMVU community. Buying avatars, actions, poses, hair, clothes, shoes, scalers, enhancements, rooms, furniture, decorations, pets, stickers, music - "all the things". And I've been happy to do so as it gave me satisfaction. How? In liking the appearance of my avatar and rooms - so much so I took THOUSANDS of pictures and looked at them sharing with friends via the ALBUMS. Then they did this awesome amazing thing... they added PHOTO STREAM.

Photo Stream - FREE as a part of the website side of IMVU. I didn't roll with it much at first... but it became a HUGE factor in my satisfaction of the IMVU Community - in fact it became a sub-community within it's own right. "Streamers" were born. It became a great way to SHOP and spend even more money/credits!! Not to mention meet great people sharing wonderfully creative photos - modeling creator wares and artists with varied forms of creations in photos. Much.. Much more.

NEXT -
Shopping Experience is not satisfying or fun what-so-ever. Just, no.
Lag is horrible.
Stability issues.
Cross-platform issues.
SMALL PICS - all smooshed together
"Phone-APP" type pop-up windows on PC (Bad form!)
Laborious to "surf" pictures, open to view large, like, comment etc.
Always shows "ONLINE" which to anyone in the community pre-NEXT this means you are signed onto the CLIENT and available to chat. While NEXT is intended to be able to do so... chat that is.. it's really not possible as is.. AND Streamers enjoyed the ability of visiting Photo Stream without being "ONLINE".

Okay - I'm going to stop typing and post. Uncertain it will be read or help with the cause and it's incomplete thoughts in some cases. But yeah NEXT is NOT satisfying or enjoyable. Given it seems factual IMVU has no intention of bringing back Photo Stream as it was... I'm holding out hope they make VAST improvements based on "ALL THE THINGS" the user base has given feedback on regarding it.


I JUST asked this to my friends in Pulse yesterday... how EXACTLY IS IMVU making money on next actually, there's no VIP over there, (is there?) if there was VIP wouldn't there be rooms/furniture there too, since they give away rooms/furniture to VIP's monthly... Confused

So - no rooms/furniture, no shared rooms/marriage packages, changing your name is free, no badges, they're handing out inventory like candy FREE, (it's like 100's of items FREE when you join), So, no reason to buy credits really because your closets already FULL for FREE, no real reason to buy AP (not even sure you could buy it if you wanted to?) You can post ANY pictures you want, XXX or not in the crappy 'feed', so no need for AP even... I'm sure I'm forgetting some things they make money on...

But yeah, how EXACTLY are they making money on next... are they REALLY making that much money on ads/sponsors now that they don't need our real money anymore... Confused Hmmmmmmmmmm... =^.^=

They don't have to make profit on Next - because that burden is on the back of those over here in the old world to support them.

That's why I think we are forever...even if they don't do anything nice for us.

Yeah, I don't understand it. What's the point of having the Guest_ part on your name removed anymore if you can't see it on the Next platform anyway? And the name changes? You can change your name on Next any time you want without spending anything.

Same here. Photostream was a very effective way of getting me to shop.

I'd also buy items and even create matching bits just to make an outfit to stream, why would I bother now? The only way to show off an outfit now is to stand around in a chat room ... not going to happen.

I used to shop from that "Also bought" section at the bottom of product pages until they disappeared. They were probably killed by the same genius who removed Photostream ... maybe they're a spy for Second Life trying to kill IMVU's sales.

To me, it does appear Next is causing stability issues across the board but instead they blamed or acted like redirecting/removing Photostream from the original site would solve the issue/issues. I don't think it has so don't think that was the culprit. Nice try though.


I have on a number of occasions throughout this (so far 99 page) thread explained why I believe the Photo Stream was removed.

It WAS a high demand section of the "original" website, each click of a heart or comment left and reloading of the whole page causes server load. Cast your mind back to the middle of last year and we used to have the little blue box which counted up the number of recent updates posted which you could click to refresh the stream?...... IMVU took this away to try and combat the server load as even when you were not looking at the stream but had it open in the background it was talking to the servers........ it didn't work!....... next step?....... take away stream all together!... It's blinding obvious why they took the stream away.... the introduction of NEXT is causing heavy server load...... IMVU prefer NEXT...... so they are bound to remove the thing which is the next highest demand to try and stop all the crashing of the client, lag on Next etc etc etc.

As for the 0kbs when on Next in a room, it is yet another glitch!.... If you are on client and someone on Next enters the room and is showing as ZERO kbs, then realistically they wouldn't be there!! Your client still has to load something for them to appear.

As many of us know, there is a trick to drop your own Kbs in a room from for example 3270kbs down to 324kbs. This helps with the kbs police in rooms and many believe it prevents lag....it doesn't. Your AVI still has to load on other people's clients regardless. It's just a bug which falsely drops your kbs.

Sigh..... Still, I don't know why I'm posting this, I just felt like another rant hahaha! I'm still trying to like the NEXT mobile platform on my computer....... Confused

Well I have to say this is just another chapter of crappy decisions IMVU made in the last 2 years. Things started going downhill with introduction of IMVU next and taking down the resellers. Ever since then I had the feeling it becomes more dead every day and IMVU acts like there is no problem at all and everybody is happy.
They just keep coming up with things nearly nobody needs, wants or likes instead of improving the things people love. Seriously, I never met ONE person who truly likes IMVU Next so why you keep pushing it?? smh
This is no way to keep paying customers happy and sooner or later everybody will be fed up by this crap and leave. It feels like IMVU is dying a real slow death and meanwhile the staff is cheering at all the oh so exciting new things the users don't give a poo about. So many people I know already left because of this. You really should start listening to your paying clients or I'm afraid there will be no more IMVU in a few years. Confused

Mod hat off.
Bookmarking it. Honestly! Why does it take Gaf to create a page which displays our art as we want to see it? IMVU techs, that really is your job. The customer is right remember? OK, yes, try out new things, and if they are good new things, in time people will switch to them anyway. Removing the old not only doesn't encourage people to move to a poorer version, it creates resentment at being treated with such little consideration.

Mod hat on.
This thread has almost reached 100 pages. When it does, it will be locked and a new one opened.

I think I speak for everyone of us streamers when I say a huge and heartfelt thank you to Gaf. You're a star, honey.

It is so sad that it took a regular guy with nothing to gain to give us a version of what we've all been begging for.

Shame on you, Imvu.
And much love to you, Gaf ♥
