IMVU Badge For this Forum?

Post by admin » Sun Feb 26, 2017 1:00 am

Just took a peek and I'm sitting on two 20x20 badges and one 40x20 Animated Badge all have never been used.

Would it be worth using some of those for pimping this Forum? They're just sitting there from a sale from who knows how long ago so it wont cost me anything but the time to do the graphics?

Worth it or a time waist?

Sounds like a good use of them. I'd proudly wear it on my profile to promote this place. :)

I know what you mean about time to do the graphics, I struggle to find enthusiasm for creating stuff like that but maybe you could run a competition to design it?

I'd give serious consideration to granting it with a PayPal button if possible. People pay huge sums for badges and I'm sure they'd pay a couple of dollars that could go towards running this site.

(I think it should contain the words "The REAL imvu forum" somewhere though!) :mrgreen:

Love the idea - and a contest is even better! BUT we need to do that quickly.
LOVE LOVE the PayPal idea :)
Badge one - auto grant on your page Keef....
Badge two - paypal purchase to support the forum :) - That could be the "contest" badge.
(I will put up the prize!)
Badge three - IMVU purchase maybe?

I made a quick banner which is on my homepage to get us rolling.
(This is not Keef approved - but was for personal use)
Feel free to grab until the branding gets designed :)

I don't think that all of the badges should be buyable though. I think at least one of them should be free grant, because at least in the start, we are going to need to do our best to advertise this new site. With IMVU forum signatures gone and external sites not allowed to be advertised on the IMVU forums, we will need all the help we can get to reach new developers.

I agree with the competition. If you will make buyable badges then they also can't be just advertisements to the forum, they will need to be something that people will want to show off.

Oh sorry, haha, I do not know how I missed that. I somehow read it as two are buyable with paypal and one with credits. My mistake, my eyes have had a long day :lol:

This is a great idea here. I for one would be happy to put the badge on my card for a while to help out where I can. Offering the second, and third badges for a select sum of money to help pay for the hosting here is an excellent idea too. There is a lot of badge activity I have seen, always posted throughout pulse so I am sure both pay badges, will help out. Seems like such a big market. :)

Yes and yes....I'd be more than happy to pay for a badge and it would be such a great way to promote our new home :)

We definitely need to repopulate a forum community.

Let IMVU have their decrepit Twatter® knock-off, we'll just emigrate. Image

This is a beautiful thing. Image

I just grabbed the banner and added it to my Home Page. I live on disability, but I could PayPal a few bucks for the badge....just give me the address and I'll gladly part with a bit. :D

I've had this badge on my profile for awhile now, but I have to ask, does it have to be so neon? I get that you guys really like blue but this is really bright I'm honestly not a fan of this neon blue.

I disagree with changing badges after they have been collected. It's irritating and for me, just as bad as devs who change their customer's products. :|
