Hello everyone,

This will be a discussion about the Next Feed.

We will be compiling feedback on what you would like to see modified. The information will be passed along to the proper teams.

Note that the second post right below this one is where information will be gradually added. I will be updating it regularly as more feedback comes in from all of you.

Rules/Guidelines

1. Stick to the matter at hand. We want to know what your issues are with
the Next Feed and what you would like to see changed.
2. Do not go off topic as moderators will be monitoring this thread.
3. Do not tell us you hate Next. That is already being discussed in other posts. You are free to go over there and have your discussion.
4. When in doubt be courteous.
5. Please pay attention to the feedback being added. There is no need to state something if we already have it covered.
6. I reserve the right to add to these rules/guidelines if needed. Check back here if you have any concerns.
7. Follow the current style of feedback. Make it succinct.

How long are we going to do this for? I am estimating roughly three weeks from this posting but it may be adjusted as needed.

If good information is still flowing in we'll keep it open. Regardless, a few days before the discussion is completed I'll let people know.

Thank you for following the guidelines and being courteous as we have this discussion.

Here is the beginning of the compiled information. We will add to it as needed.

Opening date: 2/2/2017

Estimated closing date (could be extended/shortened): 2/23/2017


User Feedback (or where I left off at): after Aegenia, page 1

-----
+ Aspect ratio of the previews (make it look better if the pic is portrait or landscape)

+ Room and Furniture product information is not shown

+ The preview icons with the white manequinn . I know these might have been choosen as a way of making the whole catalog look uniform, but as you might see on the feedback, there is actually no way of automating a showcase of a product, given the diversity we have on the catalog, there is no way of covering all cases. The product icon image is key in this, i would not only suggest product icons to be kept, but also allow for bigger product icon in dimension and kb weight.

+ There is no way of linking to a particular user feed. This is important as people use to link to their photostream pages all the time via social media and others. What i mean is for example: http://www.imvu.com/members/avatarname

Shopping
1. Inability to go to product page
2. Inability to see Product Trees (Can't bargain shop)

UI
1. Create same feeling across all platforms: Some platforms have features that others don't
2. Have a Personal Tab with the Friends | Explore
3. Inability to see more than one image at a time (Have a way to minimize an image)
4. Ability to reset the camera from Zooming out or In
5. New way to view images (3 x 3 grid or increase the current thumbnails to something a bit larger to help with people with sight issues)
6. A way to scroll through Text and Images page by page (Also ability to return to the top)
7. View Text and Images as separate entities instead of on the same.
8. We cannot see our personal feed via the profile card on Next, or anyone else's either. Please add 'fixing the scroll' to the list of things that need work.
9. Could we get the settings to save on the server instead of on a cookie or cache? This way the settings are not getting reversed if someone wipes their cache or cookies?

The scroll that supposedly enables that is almost unusable.

Images

1. Inability to save images directly to desktop. Like they can using *hires commands
2. Desktop version has no way to create pictures that remove the background (*hiresnobg command on client)
3. Transparent pixels get cropped out. Add support for transparent pixels
4. Need the ability to one click like and direct comment in the multi tile format

General
1. General concerns of Withmoji comments
2. Create a tutorial to help explain how it all works
3. Ability to create friends lists to follow groups of individuals easier
4. Inability to delete comments
5. Inability to see who posted images without mouse over
6. Have a reasonable character count
7. Fate of the Client and Online photo Album (Maybe create an album within Next)
8. Particle effects don't render well
9. You cannot access your own private rooms at all.
10. What about a way to search for non-friends feed? On the website stream we could type in the name of a non-friend in the url to see their stream. Is there a way to do this in Next?

-----

Current replies from the IMVU teams (from an older post):

Information about the Next Feed:

--- We are working out the possibility of allowing users the ability to see all products used in a picture, including furniture and rooms.
--- Daily Spin just launched on Next. This will give users the chance to spin and win free Promo Credits as well as shop for items and exclusive WithMoji Packs.
--- We are considering allowing users to group their friends into Feed lists, prioritize which friends are seen first and even flip back and forth. Let us know your thoughts on this one.
--- You can link to a particular picture on the Next Feed.
--- Next is going to have its own catalog in the near future.
--- Users can now delete comments in their thread as well as any comments they post in other threads. This is going to help a great deal with eliminating spammers. You can further control spam on Next by selecting Photos only which will take out the text from spammers when you are viewing your feed.
--- In the future you will be able to access just your Feed in the Next Feed. At this time you can currently see your personal feed via the Profile Card on Next.
--- The basic picture Feed in Next will remain square in shape because trying to incorporate landscape and portrait sizes lead to stability issues.

As I have to go to work I will start the all rolling by commenting on just this one staff reply
Quote:

No we cannot see our personal feed via the profile card on Next, or anyone else's either.

The scroll that supposedly enables that is almost unusable. Maybe it works on a phone ( I don't know if it works and never will as I do not have unlimited data so do not use IMVU on my phone) but it does not work on a laptop in firefox. Any attempt to scroll up or down with a finger results in a superspeed scroll which jumps three or more pictures at a time. The only way to scroll is by click dragging the scroll button with a mouse, which then moves it in small increments and is very fiddly to do on a laptop, and is basically more boring than walking places in SL.
In addition, tablets don't have a mouse.

The same seems to be true everywhere in Next where there is a scroll bar.

Please add 'fixing the scroll' to the list of things that need work.

The profile card and the menu are very limited. No access to the original imvu, to a person's store from their 'profile card', Groups, Forums (where we are posting at right now!), Homepages, Badges, Etc.
Also wondering why it needs to load directly into photostream which is probably one of the most laggy aspects of imvu? Is imvu's main focus pictures now? Would it be possible to have it load into your own profile with messages and updates from your own account? That just makes more sense to me. Then to have options or where you want to go from there. Photostream...and so on.

There's a few issues I have had with IMVU next in general not just the feed.
For example when visiting users profile cards within next, the badge canvas doesn't exist at all. And a lot of users are heavily invested in badging, these are pixel images so shouldn't really effect performance too greatly? Felt a bit strange that they were removed from the profile cards in next when they are so expensive to make lol.
Another issue I have is the lack of confirmation on entering and joining rooms in next, if you accidentally tap on a room you're sent straight in without an "are you sure you want to enter?" Kind of option so you end up joining rooms by accident and then having to leave instantly.
Same goes for leaving a room, if you get a message or friend request notification and click it you get taken straight out of the room without it asking you if you want to leave... Tiny feature that has been looked over, this would slightly reduce the amount of people joining and leaving which is more then excessive at the moment.
All my other concerns have been brought up and I don't have anymore at this point in time.

1. I agree with this, and to add to it - both the ability to like or unlike on click of the card without having to open the image. As an example, Imgur does this well on mobile with their double-tap but on desktop it's more cumbersome but the interaction can be platform agnostic.

2. Photo Booth can be fun to do but needs updating ito poses and backgrounds. But much more important is a good, easy and intuitive dress-up capability (or rather the lack thereof) i.e. we should be able to search for products and sort and filter inventories so that it makes using Photo Booth easier and less cumbersome.

Appearing Online as soon as you click on Next is an issue. You should only appear Online if you are on the chat/client. When I take a look at Next people send me chat invites but I'm not even on the chat so then I miss the invites. That's not good.

I would love to see Next become it's own separate thing. I love the ease of the original site, messages, shop, pulse, photostream. I think there's enough room in the world for both.

Thank you Smile

Promo Credits (aka Predits) are by nature a free product. No need to put the word "free" in front of Promo Credits (i.e. free gift--a gift is always considered free, yes?)

Almost forgot about this but yes!
No idea why they thought it would be a good idea to have you instantly online just when you visit the next website, I can understand for the mobile app to do it but I don't wanna be put online every time I go on my phones browser to look at the feed etc that is just silly.

1) Give us a choice instead of forcing us to use it on our computers until the entire platform is fully built out.
2) As others have said, fix the online issue. i don't want to be online when i am on the app on my phone (I don't use it on my computer and won't... period)
3) Give us the ability to click a users name in feed and have their stream open like the feed rather than forcing us to scroll down a minimized pop up at the bottom of their profile card. i don't want to scroll through someone's 3D image and profile EVERY SINGLE TIME i want to see their feed.
4) Create a tile option for #3. i want to see multiple pictures at once and choose which ones to see larger, not have to scroll through and wait for each picture to load individually.
5) Give the ability to bulk select and delete comments. It's tedious to have to delete each comment one by one, especially if a lot of spam is added.
