IMVU Discussions changed for a bit better

Post by Elaini » Thu Apr 12, 2018 11:23 am

It resembles the old forums a bit more but there's bit more work to be done to have it polished perfect. They now have:
  • Wider post area
  • Up to down post order
  • Add/remove text formatting (no colors)
  • Add image (upload only)
  • Mention people and groups
However, they still don't yet have:
  • Anchored links
  • Page numbering
  • BBcode
In either case, a step to the right direction this time.

However do notice that if you had links to the older forum format in Discussions, they will take you to the old forum format. You would have to pick and update the new links to redirect people to the new format.

Here's a few links for a comparison:

Oh that looks much better! Thank you for posting about it here, Elaini. I logged in to Imvu website to check things out and got a blank page from their discussions link in the drop down menu. Via your link is the only way I could see the discussions just now. :)
Maybe they'll fix that, who knows. lol

The re-done format really does look more usable/readable now. I guess I'll have to actually load the client in order to tell them that. (haven't logged in in ages)

Thanks Elaini! I haven't looked at that thing for ages, still looks awful to me though. I won't be using it.

It still has problems yes.

I've made a thread there with frequently posted comments about how IMVU should go back to how it was and continue improving those features.

IMVU, Get Back To Your Roots – Part II

I have been fighting for us there... well have tried to.

Well I upvoted you if that helps (no idea what that does lol). :)

I did find it hilarious though that all those wankers who spammed their way up the silly leaderboard will have to start all over again! :mrgreen:

Looks like they also have polls we can create now, but you should go to your Discussions profile to find that option instead of doing it while creating a thread.

Stickies are an actual option that staff has mentioned but I won't believe it until they actually create it.
