And of course do away with those awful mannequin icons in Next let us see and shop normally. With furniture and rooms available.

Spot lighting would be cool.

Perhaps an update on the potential new bones? And texture sizes? Smile


I may be in the minority, but I actually like the mannequins. It gives everyone's products equal footing. A lot of people tend to rely on flashy icons, some people edit their items in Photoshop, flashy angles to make it look better, etc. It's all fair game, but with everyone being able to just straight up see the product, right there, no interference, I find it nice, both as a shopper and a creator. I like that people can just straight up see my products, and have the easy ability to go, "oh hey, I like that hair color", or "That outfit looks pretty nice!".

Edit: I totally forgot about the white on white problem though. They need to make it identify if the item is white/gray and adjust the manequin accordingly.

O And what I read in a post about adding a new list in addition to the wish list (to be able to save things that are only to be derived and not buy)

Remove forum posts from tiers, so less people will clutter it with spam. Laughing

I thought another haha that the requirement to get tier 7 is 4000 sales derived. That way I would get it. XD Okya. The truth should make it a little easier since it is very difficult to get the tier 7 unless some famous creator gives you or you are lucky and the product stands out a lot, and many people derive it.

Simply no for the bolded bit. Reason is so many would then be more likely to leave their items open for derive when they aren't the original mesher or

creator. People would get higher tier levels off of the back of someone else...

this I and many others totally agree with. Tiers need rejigging big time to remove gaming. Things like posting for tiers, getting points for ZCDs and so forth need to be removed.

A creator wishlist would be nice.
Better marketing tools would be nice.
Clearer ToS definitions would be nice.

Very good suggestion, but I wouldn't hold my breath. In-client shopping doesn't promote product pages and in-NEXT shopping isn't clickable or searchable. IMVU probably won't spend time on product descriptions.

Tiers need to get thrown out, to be "pro" or what ever you need to be fully verified and getting paid cash. That is pro.. you earn real money from this, staff have looked at your account, you have a contactable address.

I'd keep the forum posting requirement in some form, to entice profitable and knowledgeable creators too the boards to share their secret sauce with all... not new developers hoping for a tier up.

At the least, Tier's need looked at again.

For this year over all though I hope IMVU just do stuff, we need more stuff!

I understand what you mean about the equal footing, it's just that so *many* products you can't see at all! Especially accessories. Also it's be nice to see the details of a product that make it stand out, not just a faraway look at how it is on the mannequin. It is easier to see the over all shape of a top for instance, (which I agree IS nice and the lack of flashy animation) but what about that cool sleeve detail or whatever that just doesn't show in the simple white icon? Those are the things that get my attention as a shopper. It feels inconvenient to have to click every icon to see, well anything. I get what you're saying I just thing things could be better.

(and a digression)

I wonder do shoppers even realize that the products they try on are not all made by imvu but by other users? (I'm not saying this to you Angel or anyone specific just musing Wink ) I mean, so far I've not seen anything on Next suggesting to download the client let alone that new users actually have a room of their *own* that comes with signup, or ability to create items with vip or.. anything but use the public rooms in Next for private chat. It's like they want it to be a disposable phone app game. Post your inappropriate selfies here and go chat up random pixel strangers kind of thing. I also notice a lot of the posts in the stream seem to be directed at individuals as a reply as if they don't know it posts for all to see.

I guess it means people are signing up anyway...

It seems to me a few things out to be rethought - unless it is working as intended of course.

Another wish thingy -
Next should have ability to open a new tab not just popups. New tabs is how I shop! lol

Or maybe the ability to move multiple popups around just to look without having to try everything on.

Equal footing? Equal footing?? O.O

Ok, Let's play a game....

Are you ready, folks?

Name. That. Product!


Is it a back light? A butt shaper? An "I'm ignoring you pose?"


If you guessed a choker necklace, you win!



Ok, on to round two!

Is it another choker necklace? Or do we have the butt shaper this time?


If you guessed facial expressions, you win!



Time for round three, folks!

Oooh, what could this mysterious item be? It's facing right, and not backwards, this time...how intriguing! Any guesses?


If you guessed eye makeup, you win!



On to round four! Are you excited? Yes? Then let's go!

Ok, now this one is REALLY mysterious! I don't even see the mannequin! What could it be? O.O


If you guessed our latest log-in gift, you win!


Ok, it's time for the FINAL ROUND! Are y'all as excited as I am? Then let's go!

What is this? Is it an old man's mustache? A broken seashell? The severed wing of a dead fly?


If you guessed a stunning ball gown with mind blowing detail, you win!

But, seriously, we already HAVE equal footing. We are ALL given the same opportunity to create an icon that shows our product best (and NOT to alienate our customers by not making that icon reflect the actual product as is).

Just because someone has more skill at creating an icon does not mean there is no equal footing.

And, besides how awful Next can display (or not display, as is often the fact) your product, the fact that they remove any and all branding is is criminal in my opinion.

Your. Branding. Is. Your. Lifeline.

When your customers like your product, you want them to be able to recognize when they see another of your product. You have built that trust with them...why would you quietly sit back and let IMVU strip you of that brand recognition you've earned?

They don't even show the creator's name for **** sake!

I am NOT content to loose the brand recognition and brand loyalty that I have worked hard to build with my customers.

I am NOT content to toil tirelessly and anonymously in the background with no recognition of my work except for a few piddly credits.

I. AM. NOT. CONTENT. WITH. NEXT.

And I refuse to be.

Exclamation

yes yes 1000 times yes lol

I would actually like to see tiers gone completely and implement something new .. although the NEXT program might solve that problem anyway lol

and speaking of NEXT.. it really does need to be redone especially if they are going to force us to use it
