I'll keep it short and sweet - and we can continue this discussion tomorrow when they flip the switch...

How is this NEXT change in IMVU going to effect how you market your products?
http://www.imvu.com/catalog/modules.php?op=modload&name=phpbb2&file=viewtopic.php&t=643976

We are losing a LOT of viable ability.

Get your thinking caps on. It is going to be bumpy.

Step by step they are taking more and more Features that allowed us to advertise our Products. This is one really sad Day again.

I'm not looking forward to this at all. I wish IMVU would stop "fixing" things that are not broken and focus on something that actually needs their attention. I'll give the new whatever it is a try but there's a high chance I wont be using it.

What I do not really understand is what goes on in the minds of all involved in this IMVU platform renovation project. In fact, correct me if I am wrong:

If you have something that works well but you find it obsolete, what you are losing to your competitors or what should be upgraded to a new platform that attracts more users and with that more money, what do you do?

In my opinion I create another platform from scratch using the knowledge and experience already acquired with the old platform and when it is really ready I use my old platform for its users to try and decide whether or not it is worth the change. But all this without touching what already exists and, if possible, improving what already exists.

But unfortunately, some IMVU "genius" believes that this is not possible or viable and thinks everyone wants and will join a new platform full of holes and flaws, which can not even offer something as it already exists (or will be Does anyone believe that a 5 "screen can replace a 14" screen or more?).

In addition, this "genius" forgot that the vast majority of those who use cell phones to access games are teenagers, and teens do not have a credit card or money to spend on IMVU. This is the adults who do not depend on Dad or Mom to buy anything.

Better to stop here, but to finish I must say that "genius" has forgotten the main: It is not the amount of users that really matter, but the quality, fidelity and capacity to cover their expenses are not dependent on anyone.

Anyway, I have nothing against the teenagers and neither against the change of platform, but the way they are doing them (IMVU) and we only have to lose it as we are losing our forum from tomorrow .. At the head of this "genius" we , Platform and creators, we must be old and outdated, so .. NEXT!

This is a sad day. I really really hope that this will not be absolutely horrible, but I think it will be.

Looks like this might be good bye, everyone...

My thoughts exactly. I think they maybe improved a couple things...but the rest looks like trash.

I really hate the white color scheme as well.

I really hate the round icons as well. Are they supposed to look "modern"?

Looking at people's Display Pictures is one of the best things too.

I'm just plain sad.....I will give the new Discussion boards a try and will probably find some positives. I'm just blah that things like our banners/signatures wont be there. I love seeing the creativity, humour and messages people put in their banners.

I just think imvu are trying to make us more uniform in look....its like they don't want to encourage individual creativity and want a one look fits all.

I just feel saddened that we are losing a place that although has its issues, for the most part is a great place for sharing ideas, thoughts and political views.

I'll let you know what I think about the new place tomorrow. Anyone want to meet me there for coffee and some full fat calorie-ridden cookies? Wink

Can we start to list threads that should be saved by their makers before that deadline....

Like CC's advertising one...I grabbed the editable form of the tier data post I update.

What about:

AngelKiss's thread
ChocolateCookies' other thread on icons...
The thread on creator payouts

I've spoken to Shannon about this Angel, he is going to update the announcement thread but I believe some threads will be migrated over to Discussions...I think we will have the ability to migrate stuff as well. I think he is talking to staff about this. So hopefully the Tiers thread is one that we can migrate over we need it!! Wink

What i hate most is that they are announcing this 1 Day before the whole forum gets locked. no wonder varsha has left on her own choose.
They wont bother answering one single question.
