Please return to the old way of receiving messages. The new way is terrible, and you need to constantly be watching for any message. You should at the very least add a sound to let one know that a message is there. No one likes this and I am telling everyone I know to come here and voice complaints. Sad


Amen. They did this to us before and it angered many of us. And they stopped doing it because they used to care how we felt about it. I'm not sure if they still care or not, but I guess we'll see.

As already posted, IMVU have given you the option to uncheck the "Enable Notification Center", so they have already given you a way to change it back. Your suggestion is already done.

Does it give you the pop up bubbles again Karen? I've turned it off before, but all it did was keep me from getting ANY sort of notice.

I wouldn't know Tony. In the client, I never had it checked to receive real time notifications of messages. I never wanted a pop up to get in my way of my chatting. I check my messages on the website. I find it much more efficient, with the conversational style messaging.

I disabled the new notification center, but I still am not getting any real-time notifications. In the meantime I have reverted my client back a version.

I don't like the way it works now, either please fix real-time notifications or make the new notification center go to client inbox not imvu next.

Thanks !

This thread might ge more attention if it was in Issues and Bug Reporting.

I did make a similar complaint back on Jan 17th on another post found in Miscellany.

http://www.imvu.com/catalog/modules.php?op=modload&name=phpbb2&file=viewtopic.php&p=11704497#11704497

OK, the notification button now works. If you get three messages, the number 3 appears. You click on the notification button and a drop down of the 3 notifications appears. You have no clue who sent the message or what the message says until you click on it.

Here is the part I hate the most. Once you click on the notification, your web page messenger opens up instead of the Inbox on the Client.

What the hell? We went through this over a year ago and expressed how much we disliked viewing and answering messages on the web page when the Client is open. It disrupts the flow of being on the Client and the constant opening and closing of pages.

Streaming on Next is a mess and now you chose to introduce this? You are going to piss off a lot more people than you want.


Sets my wayback machine to 2015 and locates this important thread!

http://www.imvu.com/catalog/modules.php?op=modload&name=phpbb2&file=viewtopic.php&t=548991

We hated it back in 2015 and we still hate it now!

Ifyou disable it you will still not get the pop up notification, I was told by an agent in help that it is just an experimental feature..let hope enough people complain that they do away with it. Many many messages are missed and its very frustrating, why fix something that isn't broken, over and over... makes no sense. IMVU needs to fix it and fix it soon.

I got the new way unfortunately as well. and I really dislike it too. My screen is to big to see even the small notification on the right top. I turned it off in the hope the get the old way but nope that did not work.

I really hope that after what trial which they force some of us in they let us choice how we want it. A option for old and/or new and maybe both for some that want that for as if they are afk for a bit.

I can't stand this new messaging. I'm missing loads of them as they come in and not being notified with the little pop up in the lower right corner like usual. There's only a number in the top right corner that isn't very noticeable and it is VERY ANNOYING!!! Go back to the pop up when a message is sent so we can see them ASAP.

I hate this new Message Notification System, since if you turn it off you do not know if someone is sending you a message or not. If you turn it on it takes you to IMVU Next, every time you want to read the message, it is annoying. Now I have heard that some people do not see this "black box" but others again do and with that being said I am on version 530.0 Shocked so I did not even update for this thing to take effect Shocked



Please be ever so kind and remove this or at least grant us the option to choose between the older way of receiving messages or this way.

I extremely hate the new system I preferred the pop up alert. It's not even showing the new messages for me yes I get the little number but when I check it shows messages from people i haven't talked to in near a year and one is blocked and when I click on it takes me to the website and then I see my recent messages. Annoying Rolling Eyes

I really don't understand why imvu changed the way we receive message notifications.

I keep missing messages since they no longer pop up. not enjoying being transferred to the browser side for messages. also it doesn't take u directly to the person that sent u the message. then there is an additional step to clear the message from the notification indicator.

Please reconsider changing back the way we receive message notifications.

I agree the older way is better ---

I have tried the option of unclicking the Notification Center in setting But once I do that then I get no alert what so ever . and I have no Clue that I just received a message..

It was much simplier with the little bubble that pop up on the bottom right indicating we had received a message .. Please Change it back
