The elephant in the room...The Discussion Baord

Post by Notorious Chicka » Tue Feb 28, 2017 5:58 am

So we all know why we are HERE.....but I am still keeping track, as I may, over there.

It really is difficult to find anything. I think the disorganization is my biggest beef....or for you vegetarians...the biggest tomato.

I thought it might be nice if we had a place to share little tidbits of what we find over there by accident and drop them here in this area of PPC. That will prevent a lot of us from having to filter through all of the "where iz my creditz" and "how do i change my age" posts.

So if you see interesting real news...feel free to drop it in this thread OR in your new one (if the issue seems hot and large!) in the IMVU Discussion Forum.

I'm going in there now to see if something exciting happened - like it went away ;)

One thing I have noticed is, when I load IMVU Community after starting my browser for the first time (Chrome) it takes me through 7 url changes, just to open the first landing screen. Not sure what the deal is there but it gives a very pop-up like, and unprofessional feel to it all. It's possible that loading wheel you see there is that loading the site is stuck on one, of 7 urls. :/ I am not sure why it is that something as simple as a forum needs that many redirects.

Sadly I for one, have no more interest even going there, other than to check my ongoing ticket I have been waiting for a reply to now for 8 days. :(

Then there is this. Something else this type of setup opens things up to.

It is basically going to be treated as an over glorified Pulse system.

Because thats all that it is... thats all that it can be.

A 'Discussion' program that severely limits the exchange of dialogue, policing everything written according to some arbitrary 'authority'.

Aye, this is off to be some great success story.

I saw that when I went poking in the IMVU Community and I just shook my head.

Not to mention, I've seen some who actually like the junk and it's very modern and streamline....pfft

In what universe is that crapola modern and streamline I wonder

25 seconds to load

Minutes to scroll though to see threads

Features issues aside, its just way to time consuming to use, let alone find someone needing help.

Yeah, they're a nightmare. Can't do anything useful (images, editing original post, formatting, etc.) and the old forums are visible but you can't edit or quote them to grab the code...I've got my tutorial threads to archive somehow and then my products thread.

The new forum gives me such a headache! I can't find anything, and links. Idk if you all have had the same issue, but the links are not trustworthy. I have a bookmark to my new thread to watch it, and sometimes it comes up to a different thread or none at all. It's a web developer nightmare, an IMVU user nightmare, a designer nightmare, and a (former) mod nightmare. I swear I would have had an aneurysm if I was still a mod and super active on the forums lol. Idk how they do it now! Props to them.

How are we supposed to know if there are any imvu announcements with this 'discussions' format? And I had to bookmark the downloads page as locating it in that mess would be just impossible. Good grief. What were they thinking?!

Thinking is something they never heard of :D . I think this is pretty much what they were doing creating the new "forum ":

Knowing how they moved customer service out of the US, seems the same happened in the tech department. I found some inside info recently. That's right video caught inside the tech department, showing part of their "many teams" at work on the new "forum."

XD It is very disorganised...there are so many things in the wrong categories too.

I did try it out...I really wanted to try it first.

I did try making a pet picture thread first...then I found out the post limit was 10 and I thought "What is the bloody point"?

Well said about the tomato thing. The really large tomatos at the grocery store are often those "hot house" ones that have no scent or flavor. Just disappointing.

Adding:

I really hate the Next names. Aside from asking what the point is in buying a name, it seems like it would be wayyyy too easy for someone to post while looking like you. (if you check it would be obvious that it is a fake, but it is something that a single post could be overlooked.)

just a pulse...

its simple like that!

we make the best products
we buy tiles to make badges
we buy badges
we buy credits
we buy ap
we buy room slot
we buy canvas
we buy marriage package
we buy shared room
we buy name token and premium
we pay for vip

so who give life to imvu??

many creators already left imvu, actually its impossible to buy products from disable accounts, so if all creators leave they will have imvu inc shop only

its better they listen us! we are not here to obey imvu, we are here to give life to imvu!

I had an inbox from a friend on IMVU...said someone in the Discussions is using my DP...the friend is off line right now so I don't know what part of that abismal mess it's in but I just noticed when looking through Miscellany there, that there are sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo many threads that have been made in a week and I feel sooooooooooo sorry for the mods....people aren't looking for an open discussion, just posting over and over and over... :roll:

the problem is that is impossible to find the threads, even when trying on search it doesnt find. the "search" is not working well. the discussions only shows the most popular threads, its a mess

How in heaven's name are we to report problems when the new forum won't work?

When I hit the link to take me to help.imvu.com I get the oh so pretty picture and on the top right that screenshot is what I see and it won't let me log in.

I tell you, this place was better in 2006.

For me it is Ghosery blocking it - I get this also. It's funny how with other sites when Ghostery blocks something and I go into the list to manually allow it and hit 'refresh the page to see changes' it refreshes from the Ghostery link. With this I click the Ghostery refresh and nothing happens! lol (I guess they just *really* don't like it!) and I have to refresh the browser page to get it to load.

It smacks of data mining to me.
