I would like to see a section of this board where we can find catalogs with derivables.

With the way IMVU has it set , that anything can be set to derivable, it is hard to find mesh catalogs now.

That sounds real good. :mrgreen: Its would be huge help to new creators who I want to feel welcome here.

Would also a 'Check out my Catalog' be good to? Any ideas on how to keep such an area tidy and not spamtastic?

Perhaps have a main thread where you keep a list of all creators and whats in there catalogues and what they are known for... means someone will have to monitor the thread and keep it updated.. Such As.

Derivable Catalogues:
    • Rooms and Furniture
      Avi Name: Link to Catalogue Brief Description on type of items offered
    • Clothing
      Avi Name: Link to Catalogue Brief Description on type of items offered
    • Accessories
      Avi Name: Link to Catalogue Brief Description on type of items offered
    • Hair
      Avi Name: Link to Catalogue Brief Description on type of items offered
Regular Catalogues
    • Rooms and Furniture
      Avi Name: Link to Catalogue Brief Description on type of items offered
    • Clothing
      Avi Name: Link to Catalogue Brief Description on type of items offered
    • Accessories
      Avi Name: Link to Catalogue Brief Description on type of items offered
    • Hair
      Avi Name: Link to Catalogue Brief Description on type of items offered
Just an idea.. there could be a form to fill out so we can easily place you in the list's above... again such as

Avi Name:
Catalogue Link:
What your catalogue has to offer: Rooms and Furniture / Clothing / Accessories / Hair etc
Do you have Derivables? If so Link derivables only.
Brief Description of the products in your catalogue.

This way people have access to a master list of what derivables creators have as well as other items in there catalogues and they can find what they want a bit easier...

@ Admin. Maybe have a limit on how many items you promote or how many times you can promote in a day/week etc? Clothing, poses and rooms/furniture need to be separated, and meshes need their own category. I think without separation you run the risk of just a flood of posts and no real way of sifting through. I think meshes are very separate to promoting a shop, and deserve their own forum :)

I think if people maintain ONE thread for them self - like in the old forum - it would be workable to promote yourself.

This area needs to be thought out....so it does not get messy. I really like Aerfenn's breakdown.

I like the one thread per user plan then they can go nuts in their own thread. We would need to come up with post bumping rules though.

Having been a mod for IMVU I can say Maintaining a master directory is a huge time suck.

I do love Aerfenn's Outline, what if we used that for the forum's structure instead of a directory?

I would also add Poses as a category

Would it be good to split clothing into genders or is that getting to anal?

I would suggest for the Regular Catalogs instead of having "Hair" you should change it to genetics or something similar, because there are creators who just create hair, eyes, skin, nails etc.

Gender split could be an option. It would definitely show where the male catalog is lacking productivity ;)

Okay so Brainstorming more...

We can start small and then expand into this kin of breakdown as we grow or we can just set up the full infrastructure now.

Mesh Maker Catalogs I think we need to break down into the sub categories as new meshes are the hardiest thing to find on IMVU.

Mesh Makers Showcase
Find Products to Derive From Here

-Free Derives!
-Clothing Meshers (possibly splitting by gender)
-Hair Meshers
-Accessories Meshers
-Rooms Meshers
-Furniture Meshers
-Pose and Animation Makers

Secondarily then we need a Shopping area cuz shopping has to happen!

Catalog Shopping Showcase
Shop from your Community Member Catalogs Here

Torn on weather to lump them all together or separate them.

-Clothing Catalogs
-Room and Furniture Catalogs
-Other Products Catalogs

And we need a request area

New Product Requests


Gonna make a new thread to discuss Request Shops
No matter where you go, there you are...

I love your idea keef and yes my idea may work better as a directory to link to a person's thread on what they are offering

and separating the male and female lines would be brilliant i know i find it difficult finding things for males...

I'm getting all excited thinking about this

I like this idea. It would be much easier than having to wade through responses on posts. Submissions could be handled through messages to a specific mod or through a submission form.
