Wish I had known at the time it was still working. I included my old name for years in keywords when I changed mine (yes, I chose this name after my shop started gaining traction! Don't laugh at me! *Cries*)

Is it just me - or did IMVU sneak something in on us during an update?

I understand some people changing their names here. I did it a LONG time ago.

When I am using IMVU - I tend to search by the name I remember - not the new name someone made.

So for example - ZaraKaine - I bought a lot of things from.
She recently changed her name to Keodi...which I know because I follow her meshes and personality pretty close.

(That is why I am using her as an example...she won't take it personal)

I just went into my furniture inventory to search for a car she made.

It doesn't come up when I search by Zara anymore.

Why it was changed by IMVU is beyond me.

IMVU took away our ability to check on name changes. (which was important to me) And now they have taken away the search function I used a LOT.

And if I search by ZaraCaine in the catalog I do get a FEW products by Keodi - but not as many as I should expect.

A LOT of the people I buy from - have changed their names - and I can't find anything in my vast inventory.

The marketing aspect of this may be alarming down the road.

Anyone else testing this lately? I know most creators don't USE IMVU like I do - but I am sorta miffed they took away this feature from me.


Have you tried contacting customer support ?

I remember 4u lost control of her old name briefly when she changed it.. That was devastating. I am another one who will never change my name.... If I do, I've been hacked. Name changes confuse me immensely

-
If people want to be followed in the catalog with their old private creator name, let them change / add one of the keywords. This seems to be cut and dried. The Paid Privacy issue should take care of itself in a natural way. No big deal and not rocket science, here.

~This thread was reviewed- IMVU updated name changes awhile back. Creators will not be connected to their old names for privacy reasons this includes the catalog and users inventory. IMVU nor users can post other users name changes without permission its why the name change log was removed. IMVU will not fund a case by case permissions for name changes. It would be to costly so customers of creator who change their names will be effected and have to find another creator to shop with/derive from or wade threw their inventories to figure it out.

So in general we can't hand out other users private info nor can IMVU.

What if there was an option so users can CHOOSE if they want to show their name change history or not? I am sure some people would opt in to having that accessible to Public or even just friends. It would probably help name changing devs and people in general that want their friends to know.

I was just going to suggest that lol. It would be a boon for most creators.

A simple "Show/hide my name change history" tick box on My Account page would do.

what if imvu would do a mass mail out to your friends list of your name change. Sort of like the message we receive when someone announces they are getting married. That way people on your list have a fighting chance of knowing who you are. Just a thought

Good Idea but it should be optional or lets say that you are able to choose to whom you want to send out this information.

I'm not bothered by this, because usually after I changed my name I'd clear my cache so I could search for my own products under my new name and not have to key in my old one.

However, I am a casual creator, and I'm not concerned with having a 'brand name'. If people want my items they can find them via the keywords.

Also, I have a large inventory, and while sometimes I search via creator name - for me that is rare. I prefer to use keyword searches to navigate my inventory. Creator names can change, but it is rare that product names do.
