Creating Together, Why IMVU doesn’t allow it.

Post by admin » Mon Mar 13, 2017 10:36 pm

This suggestion comes up over and over so I thought I would give some feedback on it.

Why IMVU doesn’t allow a shared Create Mode.
  • Technical Reason

    Creating actually does not happen on IMVU’s servers, it is happening only on your local machine. Only when you click upload do your files go to IMVU’s servers from where others can see them as a product.
  • TOS Reason

    IMVU wants all content to pass Peer Review before anyone else can see it. We all know in reality Peer Review does next to nothing to stop actual miss-rated content. It’s like trying to catch flies in a butterfly net. Most get through but the occasional one my get caught.
  • Safety Reason

    Sadly there are predatory people on IMVU. People that would take advantage of having a place where they can show things and do things to other's avatars with no record of it that are not appropriate.
Work Arounds
  • There are valid reasons that you really need to share create mode.
    • Show a client a work in progress
    • Get a critique from trusted peer
    • Get help troubleshooting a problem you are having in Create.
    For those I would recommend using a screen sharing service. While they won’t be able to directly interact with your avatar or the object you are creating they will be able to see your avie with it.

    Here are just a few of these options.
    • Google Hangouts
    • Skype
    • Join Me
As always use caution when interacting with anyone on or off of IMVU. DO NOT give anyone your real name, personal email or other personal identifying information.
No matter where you go, there you are...

Here's another screen sharing option! (I hope it's okay I posted ._.)

http://mikogo.com/

I used to use Join.me.. but it horrible lags on my computer (I blame Win10).
Mikogo, when you first use it, gives you the "premium" features like any oter sharing program, but once it lapse, you're only allowed to have 1 person viewing.
If you're anything like me, that one person is plenty since I'm usually showing my client, and nothing more.

I'm very much a fan of Teamviewer, but every time I tell someone to get it, they get all whiny because they have to download something.. =w=
