Well recently I see less and less mods being active on this so called forum plattform discussions whatever UX fail *eyerolls*
Basically BB said what was to say about this whole mess, my reasons to leave as a Mod were the same. I just didn't feel like a valuable member of a team anymore. I felt like a second class mod or person.
We did whatever we could to talk some sense into them, but they decided otherwise. The result is visible :(

I agree, Lestat has always been helpful and communicative and he put a lot of effort in his Posts.
Its a shame he is not longer a Mod.
He was always my fav D: I did message him a while back about it and he did not seem too pleased.

Still speechless over all the mods that have left voluntarily or deleted out... so sad! :roll:
If you see someone who has lost their smile, give them one of yours! :D

That *expletive deleted* ShannonMac warned me for Trolling and off-topic in his announcement thread.

Guess the truth hurts. I requested a review because he doesn't understand the meaning of "trolling", and "off topic", in conjunction with the traditional definitions that moderators have always used, and he didn't use the appropriate messaging format when warning me.
:geek:
It won't be overturned of course, and the text is gone now, but oh well, my point was made.

I got a warning from him for a 3 week old post - where the truth hurt. His reason was that "Your comment was off-topic, negative behavior and trolling." My post WAS on topic. It was not trolling...I was the ONLY post made on his thread. And wah wah I was a little negative about him wanting us to host contests in the discussion board that is not useful for contests. I explained thoroughly what the problems were.

He didn't like my post so he removed it. Period.

Yes, I agree with your review. It is their sandbox after all, so they can choose any reason or none for warning/banning, etc... as they always have, but I will at least force them to confront the fact that he warned my post incorrectly. I challenged it based on his definition of trolling and off topic, quoting the specific definitions - and not using the standard moderation template.

I know it won't be overturned, and the text was likely not kept, to be returned - but I will at least make them go through the motions, as they should.

It is a crock of excrement and it stinketh. This is not encouraging.

I am still curious how I was really out of line besides I hurt his wittle feelers...

Hello Notorious,
A recent comment you posted in “Creator Contest ideas” was deleted.

This particular time around this is a friendly reminder and not an official warning.

Your comment was off-topic, negative behavior and trolling. The post did not ask for opinions as to why
Creator contests would fail no matter what was attempted. It sought input on making Creator contests work.

“Notice the crickets? I know it's early. After watching these Creator Contests be poorly managed in the "legacy" forums, you want to now try to host them in this chaotic mess of a communication board? ShannonMac I seriously hope someone chimes in for your sake. I am sincere. But the question would be "why?". There is no good marketing value for the time spent in managing these contests by yourself in this venue. IMVU's little bit of help isn't a boost either. You can't post pictures in the board that generates interest and excitement. "OoOOh I am gonna go check in on that contest with all of the untrustworthy links I need to click on to see if anything good is showing up!" I BUY from these contests...or DID buy. Because I saw well expedited entries. I am not going to click on links from people I don't know. I would be more apt to seek out their "classic" catalog. I found new creators because they entered...with pictures. Then there is the little snafu of being able to trust in these contests for fairness. Good luck in your effort. And don't worry - my comment will roll off of the page after 10 posts so no one will readily see it :) My new signature: Shop Notorious http://www.imvu.com/shop/web_search.php ... _id=602493 Join Pixel Pushers - where we can have better conversations as Creators index.php


NOTE - he posted on May 4th - and I posted on May 5th....and no one has posted since. He got butthurt because I stated the obvious truth. I have some expletives I would type - but you guys don't deserve that.

When I told DA5 about this she said..."what? he can't do that."

THIS he considered baiting and trolling when HE went off topic in MY thread about mocking our US President with a IMVU released product....

Example quotes:

and another thing...why would you ask me to help you trouble shoot your product for nudity...when there is no courtesy given in regards to the issue I brought here in the first place...that IS going ignored.
you can't have it both ways.

@ShannonMac (Customer) don't worry IMVU's product isn't broken - it just malfunctions depending on what the avatar is wearing. You really should learn more about how IMVU works as a User.
It's like when my avatar doesn't show up in Next.

Note - I have been telling for several months that withmojis show up naked. He decided to run with it in my withmojis thread about the disrespect and how it appears to the user base when you mock Trump.

I have also been telling them for over a year that there is a problem with NEXT and avis not showing up. They seem to not care enough to try it themselves.

Hell even Jinx points out in her new blog that she is teaching staff crap. Maybe they should filter what messages she is sending too ;)


Bottom line - I am bailing on their discussion board. It is a joke.

Well, I was warned after only 2 weeks of the New Disgustion Boards...whether I asked for it or not.
I was merely stating my opinion, which was: "Blah". And thats how I felt about the topic at hand..just "Blah".
I have recieved quite a few warnings, and I now stay away as much as possible unless I'm made aware of something..

For some reason, when I posted the link Notorious shared, it came up broken :(
Shannonmacked...Love it...Ahahahahahahha

Yep, it seems like he's doing what he wants.

It is simple... he can do whatever he wants, he runs the playground. If you choose to play there, you play by his rules, even if they shift under your feet like the inevitable earthquake which will lay ruin to IMVU some day.

I just wish that he'd warn you for the right thing... "I want to measure my virutal penis against yours, so you are left wanting - and you are warned for behavior I don't like, such as providing the users with inconvenient truths".

I could handle that a lot better, than when he goes rogue and makes up his own rules... mods get removed for that crap.

He can have his "discussions" - besides, it's mostly a bunch of "help me" spam anyway.

Ahahahahaha I just got warned a well because I asked him to fix the little frames in the thread as first post, so for this he warned me and for saying I won't repeat myself as I already stated the solution once. This was his reason loool, that I should repeat myself all over to staff. :lol: :lol:

From reading all of this... it's sounds like ShannonMac doesn't take constructive criticism or any kind of criticism well and finds any excuse he can think of to bully those who don't like the Boards and point out it's flaws.

However, the facts are that Running any kind of contest in the Boards is practically a fail because no one can post pictures, just links which unscrupulous people can use to their advantage to scam innocent people out of their accounts. I rarely go to the boards because they are horrid to look at, so I am just sitting back and waiting for the day when IMVU sees that their "exciting" Discussion Board is nothing more than a boring, spamfest mess.

I know some people hold out hope that things will get better, but I'm not holding my breath.

Wise decision Diana. Holding your breathe would end in death.

They "say" they will have picture posting and such - but the dynamic is gone.

They are working with a thirdparty tool. It seems they have really none who is able to work with that thing. Maybe they have to wait until an engineer comes out from salesforce. There are plenty easy fixes for the discussion boards. Even the mobile version should be already done by now. But I have the slight feeling that the files are somehow weird capsuled or that imvu can't directly access those files and that they are a number of 3445464654 on the list of the other company. By all means I have no clue what takes them that long to fix some easy css things at least. I was able to fix some stuff in the console of chrome.

Atm I have the feeling Shannon is somehow helpless, overloaded and has no clue how to act in such a community. He might have splendid experience with a community of people who are happy and nice and maybe never experienced a crisys. But he slowly goes down in here. At least under Varsha we could speak out our minds and it took long until she warned someone for baiting staff. Now it seems to be just positive blah is allowed everything else will be ingored or warned and taken out. This is not how you should handle your social media and internet marketing, every single starter book will tell you :p

I'm glad you got out when you did too Eli! What an absolute mess. I don't know how any moderator even has the wherewithal to still be helping IMVU out with that mess or even why they don't all just leave and let IMVU handle it all by themselves.

I appreciate that they could be staying "for the good of the community" but all I ever see on those boards are people complaining about not getting credits or getting banned. So it's not like there's any real community help left there anyway.

Question.....the person 'Jeff' is he the same 'Jeff' that is a certain high profile mesher's boyfriend?

as for people getting warnings...kinda glad that netball season hit with vengance this year....it's kept me to tired and with not enough time to jump on to much...

And there is an issue with a mod or two that are still there...and they are pets...and they get away with so much crap and even if they 'attack' you, they are right and you get the warning...

Jeff no longer works for IMVU.

My review still has not been honored. Of course, now that it has been over 30 days, it is as if I never violated the rules - so I send another message demanding a timely review or I will take other action.... lol.

It is quite a bore to spar intellectually with those far less well off than you are. (Then again, I think that's a requirement for the job there).

His card still says that he's staff ... or are they just as inefficient when it comes to updating that kind of thing as they are at everything else?

http://www.imvu.com/about/management.php

He is no longer listed as management. He used to be... then again, perhaps the "Discussions" rollout resulted in a demotion - but I kinda doubt that would happen. I've heard he's moved on, but that's just rumor. I haven't seen any posts from him in awhile... he may still be there, but signs point to no.
