People win your Custom Creations on Daily Spin

Post by Sui2 » Wed Mar 15, 2017 11:59 am

Yes its true...
Happened to my friends.
Person A made a exclusive Item for Person B and kept it on display only.
Person C spins the Wheel and wins the custom Product created by Person A for Person B.

...what?

So do they just randomly pick any item from the shop to gift to you? Even if it is an exclusive skin priced at 15k or even 100k? And do they not ask the developers who made the products first about if they want their stuff to just be given away or not?

This is awful and completely unfair to developers who have made product requests and to users who have paid for those requests. Seriously, wth IMVU...

I'm not surprised. IMVU likes to do the quickest way of completing projects. What I think is that since you agreed to thier TOS, IMVU feels they can take whatever they want.

I made a topic about free spin clothing gifts should be only off wishlists . . if you have one .
Adding in now that if someone doesn't have a wishlist it should be predits or better yet credit prizes .
Also that those who were rewarded display or hidden items they should be taken away
and substituted with credit prize . Now sure this link will work but anyway its in suggestions
and feedbag .

https://help.imvu.com/apex/IMVUCommunit ... 00ROy8jCAD

May I suggest those in favor make a comment or like it ( I don't really need likes don't matter to me but the more comments
in agreement may draw attention to this typical of IMVU snafu-glitch .

It is supposed to be picked from whatever is popular. So in theory hidden or display only products should not be there.

Exactly thats what happened. The Product was on display only plus high priced.
I totally agree with you Cookie.

You friend should send details of what happened to staff. That is not supposed to happen.

If users can win exclusive customs from the daily spin, what stops them from accidentally winning products that have no textures, are broken or UFI?

I'm not sure which would be a worse surprise to a 13 year old girl that has been on IMVU for 3 days, getting a wire map body suit mesh or UFI products.

IMVU does need to change this, as, it is not against the rules of IMVU if I found someone won one of my custom products that I had made for someone specific, it would for sure get changed to something basic, and I would reupload the custom and deliver it to the rightful owner. I had thought maybe just blocking the entire product out, but, that would kinda be punishing someone who won, and not IMVU, but the item for sure would be changed to something basic.

That is a good idea and not to take away from it at all just to say here that some creators aren't even around anymore and others poor that may not be able to afford doing that .

PS I also read at my topic someone said all the stuff they win , that they do not even want . .
So . . . when they try to delete it or hide it , they can't . It just keeps coming back in their list/s . :roll:

Severity had started a discussion about this on their new boards - and ShannonMac has (at least) read it.

It might be a true test of their discussion board to see if it gets handled appropriately for the issue this is.

I want a link to OUR catalog if we are the one who gives away the prize. They send a home page message - so they *can* do that for us.

-looks at clock- and ofc imvu have kept up with there routine of fucking us developers over....

just when i was setting up my custom shop and doing up my first custom bundle.... now i'm stuck wondering if it's worth it or not... because if any person can get the item i'm making specifically for someone.. is it right for me to charge them....??

really hate next....

really hate the idea of daily spin....

i really hate the direction that imvu is going... they are not thinking they are rushing into things setting things up half-heartedly with no thought to any of the consequences or what backlash they would get...

i mean haven't they learned the basic thing of manners...

We've been screaming at them for years telling them we're sick of them pushing things on us and we want to be asked things and kept informed on whats happening....

But oh yes i forgot we're just cogs in there machine here to do there dirty work while they sit there and have there fancy massages while watching the interest go up on our MASA cash flow thats in there bank and laughing knowing that they have control over us and theres fuck all we can do about it...

-deep breaths-

My sincerest Apologies for my rant.... kinda hitting the roof with all the shit imvu pile on us...

This is gettin' retardiculous fo sho ! Every time one of ya posts a new glitch it gets worse .

On top of all this and I could be wrong because perhaps it hasn't been 24 hours since my last spin , but . .
It looks like they changed the better classic free spin game -

http://www.imvu.com/earn_giftbox_game/?ID=re

Where it never did this before and would tell you that it hasn't been 24 hours so now is telling me -
" Sorry! All the prizes have sold out for the day. Come back tomorrow. "
I'd guess they are in some transition to completely eliminate the real credits free spin game all together ,
yet seem to be doing it in a way so it is just confusing that way people like myself won't complain :evil:

This is so incredibly disrespectful to creators that I really want to be shocked. But considering it's IMVU, I'm having a hard time doing that. I've developed such a blasé attitude toward IMVU's increasingly arrogant improprieties that, frankly, I'm more shocked by my lack of reaction than their nonsense.

That said, this disquiets me. People hide products for a reason, and it's no one but the creator's business why that is. Regardless of whether it's an exclusive project, an old product they don't want visible in their shop, a duplicate, or anything else, IMVU has absolutely no right to not only steal from them by giving away their product without permission, but violate their privacy as well.

I stopped creating publicly in protest to IMVU. I still create, because it's good practice in what I hope to do for a living, and I enjoy it, but I started hiding all of my new products to reduce IMVU's revenue through me. Now, it seems, not even my hidden products can truly be hidden. Shameful.

So is there any new updates as to whether or not this is fixed? I personally don't want to opt out, simply because its free advertisement... but I don't want my custom customers screwed over.

It looks like they listened and fixed the classic old free spin game . Go IMVU - and take NEXT with you !

So today I just won BOOB TAPE , so I mentioned to them in my suggestions topic linked above I'd guess
as others noted that non-AP users are probably winning AP items , Perhaps not and to note I do have AP but . .
Knowing IMVU they probably do give similar items to anyone .
