IMVU down... again.

So it is currently 5:50 AM on Thursday, March 30 on the Pacific coast or "PST / GMT-7." Being IMVU is down, here is the only access to IMVU. Isn't Pixel Pusher Awesome?

Image

So when the "News" is, that IMVU is down, I guess we have a place to come now that's not affected by these outages.

I have just discovered that IMVU is down when I tried to access the website. This mess happened last night also. Lovely how IMVU wants us to get excited about the crappy discussion board and Next, yet they fail to keep everything running smoothly.

Haha I know right? At least we don't have to question our isp's and know full well this is the making of IMVU their self.

It used to be ONE part would go down. Now ALL of it does at the same time.

I am sorta concerned.

It seems even though it's a salesforce discussion board, it's still hosted through IMVU.com. I guess it kinda makes me feel a bit safer knowing my login into is still on the IMVU website.

I swear they wait till I am in the middle of creating something to fail, I didn't even get a chance to save what I was doing both last night and today and I do hate the "IMVU service could not be reached, please check YOUR internet connection and try again" Like the fault is always apparently our end, NO!! it's IMVU's end.. Quit napping on the job and spin that hamster wheel!

I am so glad that I managed to save two new dresses I am making in the que last night before this mess started. IMVU needs to do better than this. How in the world they expect us users to get "excited" about junk we don't even like or want and yet they cannot keep things running right?

I seem to always miss the problem sessions, usually because I'm asleep. XD

But when it happens... I usually table flip my baked potatoes! D:<

I was in the middle of working on meshes I wanted to submit....so I know the feeling. I got 2 out of the three I wanted to submit. I ended up staying up late trying to finish everything.....bleh...need to stop pushing myself too hard right now.

It sucks when it crashes because I have certain things I set up for certain projects. I do have a couple rooms for creating, but sometimes i try on outfits or actions or have the camera on a certain angle when I am looking at a certain area. (I do wish when we saved our projects we could have it save the settings like that..but eh). It doesn't seem like so much...but if you crash a few times....it starts getting really annoying.

Bwahaha, I was saying that too.

I really don't like how it is an outside source they seem to be doing this through...it seems less professional. I actually mentioned at one point to my friends that the IMVU next style pages lagged like those Wix build-a-profile.

They need to take "Create" OUT of client, like it use to be originally. That way we can work on our projects and not have to worry about it crashing on us while we are in the middle of them.

I used to be able to Create Offline :P

I would go to the coffee shop, have a coffee and derive from eyes and I could then bring my laptop to the place I was staying and continue to work on it. (eyes were the easiest thing to do offline xD)

This was an older version before the red letters bullshit started (I get those even when I am connected and loading other pages from the internet =_=)

I usually did not crash unless I tried to do something else other than create mode.

When I first started to have internet that I paid for, it was really limited so I would turn it off to create for a bit....

I do not know when the update happened, but I can not create offline anymore. The version I used would have been YEARS old too.

2:50 PM Pacific time IMVU is down yet again. This would be day 3 and in a row. So the first we were given a warning (May 2, 2017). Everyone seen the blue bar message on that one I am sure but seems now IMVU is stuck in an "every afternoon servers go down" spiral.

So glad I was almost done deriving something and didn't yet save my changes. :/

I was just finishing something too D:

Ahh I made the joke that maybe they were making the changes of getting rid of the client and once everything was back online, everything would be on Next....creating etc, no more client and more ugly Next. I ended up scaring myself tho.

I hate to think about that Roy, but I do fear that day will come eventually. I do hate that I enjoy a lot about IMVU today cause when that day comes I know there will be many mixed emotions on my part. Do I stay? Do I just say enough with a company who cares little about their users and go? I do have a feeling that the day Next takes over and the client is done for, will be the day I go.

But yea this down time is very annoying. I was actually planning on coming here and posting a message calling out IMVU and my bets that today IMVU would be down again. But I was fully expecting it to happen in a couple hour's from now so I wasn't in a rush to make that post. IMVU surprised me and did it early instead. Lol.

My one friend is suggesting it is an attack. You would think that not EVERYTHING would be down tho (at least we have forums here)
Tbh,, I think IMVU Next is embarassing. The idea behind it is nice..but it is slow af and glitchy.

I have a great computer now and great internet and IMVU Next will still crash me or rooms do not load so I end up popping in and crashing before I can say hi.

You are right, IMVU Next is a great idea. When you think about the concept it would be great if IMVU Next worked. One of my main issues with it is that for me IMVU is all about the 3D chat. Two things, we can talk and that has always been the biggest part of IMVU of course, but also the avatars and what you see in the top half of the screen. In Next, most of the time when person A using Next is sitting on a couch, person B using the client can't see where they are sitting. Person B see's them standing in a default node.

As for the attacks. I kinda was thinking the same thing. The last couple times IMVU went down I did notice a bit of glitchy lag just before it go's down. That tells me that someone might be flooding the server until it gets overwhelmed and finally crashes. Think is most of the time from what I experienced elsewhere when people take down servers like that they crash and come right back up, then are attacked again only to crash again. It is really hard to tell when all IMVU will ever tell you is "We are aware of this issue and working on resolving it."

Hm, not just seeing them on default nodes, but Next users can not see when someone is on a couch sometimes...and then they end up "bumping" someone off of their spot. I tested this myself and invited my alt to the room and was able to bump my other account. I think they need to sync up Next and the Client so everyone knows where they are. It causes a lot of annoyances like,

A: "Come sit beside me!"
B:"I am right next to you!"
C:"A, can you move away from me?"
A: "I am not even near you!"

I crashed again while deriving the same mesh I was last time XDD
