Blocking someone by accident is so easy. I have done it my self.
When avatars are married and have a married room and even chat rooms together and shared rooms, then this simple error of blocking someone takes away everything they have worked for together everything is removed. Blocking someone by accident automatically divorces them and removes their shared rooms including their shared chat rooms. Why on earth does imvu think that blocking someone means you want to divorce them and also have all your hard work, time, money, and memories wasted and all your shared rooms removed. For starters i don't think there is just one case of this, but many cases of this nature have occurred yet still the problem doesnt seem to have been resolved. I think the block tab should be moved to a safer place and not so close to the message tab on the avatars card, or it should be a right click on the tab instead. Here are my other suggestions to avoid blocking someone intentionaly or unintentionanly who you are married to or share rooms with. When blocking someone where you are just friends and have nothing more then the current system is fine, as it is easily recitified by adding them back again as a friend, but where you are married to an avatar or share rooms with them including shared chat rooms then there should be a 3 step process such as 1st step a red warning sign and bigger block window should pop up stating of the consequences if the avatar chooses to continue to block. For exampme WARNING TO BLOCK THIS AVATAR NOW WOULD MEAN YOU WILL AUTOMATICAL BECOME DIVORCED AND LOSE ALL YOUR SHARED ROOMS WHICH CANNOT BE RETURNED, AND YOU WILL NEED TO BUY AGAIN A MARRIAGE CERTICIATE SHOULD YOU WISH TO REMARRY AND BUY AGAIN SHARED ROOMS. If the avatar chooses to continue to block, then another 2nd step should appear asking if they are sure. If they continue on again to block then a final 3rd step appears asking to confirm. This will most certainly avoid errors and will be a sign of intent and not an error. Also sometimes people when upset may make a drastic decission, so in addition to the above i think there should be the option to suspend marriage and suspend shared rooms so when all is calmed they can decide to re activate again, that way they don't lose anything. This suspension can be indefinate or have a fixed time limit before making the final decission. It will at the very least avoid the mistake of blocking someone by mistake due to lack of attention on what you were doing at the time. Anyone else have any ideas on this. Thanks for reading

Yeah, they've known about this since Sept 7th. According to the new guy, they have added a notification that removing your spouse will lead to divorce but that was only added to client and only in cases of removing your spouse.
Also, accidental blocking of a friend doesn't have the consequences as blocking a spouse, unless you share a room w that friend but unfriend ing a friend does have its own batch of problems. Unfriending, blocking and flagging of anyone should have a 'are you sure' pop up. _________________
So this is still going on? How long does it take to put in a safe guard that was stated would be there? There should also be a warning for mobile users that they can't access room features unless they download the client on their computer. Mobile users are buying the shared room package without this knowledge and then are unable to use what they have bought. Because imvu makes it available for them to buy it via mobile. Imvu has the most deceptive sales tactics I have seen in a long time. _________________ ~Ash!~

Good idea. There should be separate options for each action you wish to take. For example. Option 1. Blocking them from messaging you and inviting you, and nothing more, everything else that you may have together remains, such as marriage and shared rooms etc. You may wish to unblock them later when things have calmed down, or when you have realised you blocked them by mistake. Each avatar can select each option shown here depending on what actions they wish to take
Option 2. Unfriending someone should simply mean you take them of your friends list, and nothing more, everything else you have together is not removed but remains, such as marriage and shared rooms etc. You may wish to friend them again later when things have calmed down, or when you have realized you unfriended them by mistake. Each avatar can select each option shown here depending on what actions they wish to take.
Option 3. Unsharring. You may simply wish to unshare a room with someone, this should not mean that all the rooms decorations are removed, the rooms decorations should remain. You may wish to share with them again later for whatever reasons, or when things have calmed down, or if you have realized you unshared them by mistake. Also there can be a unshare option with a remove all furniture. Each avatar can select each option shown here depending on what actions they wish to take
Option 4. Divorcing. Simply means to separate as a married couple and nothing more, it should not mean you want to lose all your shared rooms and their decorations. You may wish to remarry with them again later for whatever reasons, or when things have calmed down, or if you have realized you unmarried them by mistake. Each avatar can select each options shown here depending on what actions they wish to take.
5. Flagging should simply mean to flag the room or conversation, and it should not automatically unfriend you, block you, unshare rooms with you, delete all the rooms decorations, or divorce you. You may wish to unflagged them for whatever reasons, or when things have calmed down, or if you have realized you flagged them by mistake Each avatar can select each options shown here depending on what actions they wish to take.
Each option/action should be separated away from each other or be in a different part of a page or window, or the site to avoid mistakes. There should also be a 3 step process so as to avoid mistakes, such as, step 1, a warning of the consequences, 2, an, are you sure, 3, a Confirmation that you wish to take this final step.
Options would be great. Especially specific blocking actions. Just blocking messages, just blocking seeing their pulse comments, just blocking seeing their forum posts, just blocking them from your room, etc. As it is blocking is an all or nothing type deal which technically doesn't even block you from everything. It really just blocks them from messaging you (if they can't find a way around it), you from seeing their pulse posts and you from seeing them visiting your homepage. It also is wrong that blocking automatically disposes of any item you paid for. _________________ ~Ash!~
