Promoting Pixel Pusher Community

Post by MandaMarie » Mon Apr 10, 2017 4:59 pm

Okay so, I have seen many other people in IMVU discussions promoting other websites. I for one have refrained from promoting PPC there, due to hearing we "aren't allowed to." I can't remember where I heard this, but I think it was Notorious who received a message by... IMVU staff? IMVU "forum" Mod.? What I am curious about is this...

What do the higher powers here in PPC think about PPC promoting? (Inside IMVU and out) Currently, I have the badge on my profile card taking up the top 2X1 space, as well as "♥ Come find me at ♥ www.pixelpusher.info ♥" on the top of my interests section of my profile card. What I want to do is change my display name for the app, and discussions board from "🌟MandaMarie🌟" to "MandaMarie@PixelPusher.info"

Any thoughts on making this name change there?
Any thoughts on other ways to promote PPC?

(I am currently looking for the opinion of changing my IMVU discussions and app display name to "MandaMarie@PixelPusher.info" from the higher-ups of PPC. I am looking for everyone's opinions and ideas about promoting the Pixel Pusher forum anywhere, and everywhere else.)

Nope.
I went to DA5 and she said nope.

BUT we can promote our IMVU Group for PPC.

It seems 'you can't promote an offsite forum', (though they only seem to crack down on links to this one, others seem to be getting a pass.)

My hope is that was a knee-jerk reaction to being inundated with links to here, maybe once they see what we are all about they may some day change their minds on people sending creators here for real peer help, but for now its a no go.

You can post links to IMVU groups. Notorious has made one for linking people to and promoting this site.

You can still post links to offsite help. I've slowly been updating my help site's pages to all have a prominent links to here so if you link them to one of my site's pages they will see advertising for here. We cant go nuts linking it though, it all has to be in genuine response to a question or else they may choose to shut that down too.
No matter where you go, there you are...

This is what I thought as well. I have never found any written rule anywhere as of yet, that says us as IMVU members, cannot promote/link to an external forum. I plan to dig deeper into this as well and get an official statement from an IMVU staff member, so I have a confirmation, written by an official IMVU staff member to direct to.

The only issue now is, I don't wanna press too hard as...

I too feel this all is nothing more than a knee-jerk reaction. I mean seeing others do it, yet, PPC can't? This makes me think it isn't an official rule or anything. I don't want to push the issue too hard now, to where it does, in fact, become an official rule. (Or give PPC a bad name to the company IMVU inc.)

Awesome, thanks, Notorious. I kinda figured we couldn't promote PPC, as for the group... Well, maybe we can use it for even more as well. Some of the posts here would do well there. Especially if they direct link back to PPC. An example is a post I put together here...

viewtopic.php?f=27&t=279

I have been wanting to link directly to it in IMVU discussions, but haven't been able to. (I also feel it's really unfair to us, and anyone who can benefit from its help.) Maybe I will also place its information in the group, and have a direct link back to PPC as, with how many "hacked account" messages I see in discussions, not only is it great help to those who are not sure what to do, it also helps spread the word about there being a really awesome forum, dedicated to IMVU, and run by the right people out there. :D

I have asked for clarification.

I bumped your question there Notorious.

Also, I have since linked my post in the PPC forum of what to do when hacked two times in IMVU discussions. The only two times I did though, were very relevant to the discussion and also came with more information than just the PPC post. Lets see what happens to those replies.

I had a long call with DA5...and she said some new announcement would be forthcoming but couldn't be clear on it's content due to NDA agreement. So we wait.

I think IMVU Staff are on their own timezone and don't consider us customers.
