IDEA FOR ARTISTS

Ok, don't shout at me and don't be angry with me, this is just an idea that I came up with like right now so I didn't really think much about it.

What if IMVU opened an Artist program, sort of like the Creator program?
Have an extra tab for artists and their art, and allow people to buy art so artists can also use the money feature on IMVU, because I doubt they're going to change that.
+ since it's on IMVU, there's a bigger audience, better for the artists.

Eh? Surprised

Don't jump at my throat but actually, before the changes by following the rules, you would have need to be a creator to sell to the resellers.
As a quote from a reseller:

Quote:
You must have been a creator for 60+ days.


Means actually every artist should be a creator anyway right, if they would follow all the rules before the changes right?

I just personally am coming to the conclusion now, that the only thing an arist would need to do is switch the payments from direct credit transfer into a purchase of a sticker, which they could upload into their shop.
As resellers were actually only buying if you had the creator status. At least the resellers i was partnered with.


Perhaps they're thinking they have to actually submit products, not just be a 'creator.'


Well it would be involving upload a few stickers, buut stickers can be bought several times so once you upload them and you get an order a customer can buy the sticker over and over again.



I have never been able to by a sticker more than once per account.


Neither have I unless I'm sending it to friends; but why would I want to send them something they do not want? Also, I'm STILL not holding my breath that IMVU won't put a cap on the sticker price, as they had mentioned before to make "great changes" to the creator program.


You can't purchase your own item if that's what you're thinking about but I've always been able to purchase someones sticker, for myself, more than once.


Nope I mean someone else's sticker....



I have tried to buy it from the product page and I'm told I already own this item. Perhaps a glitch?

Either way, I still don't trust that there could be a possible cap on how much stickers can cost.

Well our thread was locked, to be dumped into the massive horror of the main thread, the reading of which makes me want to hang myself.

THE CRITICAL ISSUE addressed is here:

http://nl.imvu.com/catalog/modules.php?op=modload&name=phpbb2&file=viewtopic.php&p=11304545#11304545

As stated, many people cannot access Paypal. I don't think a dismissive response from a mod, who, with all due respect, is far from a financial expert, is appropriate.

I hope IMVU will do more than this to address serious issues. While these new changes don't affect me in a negative way, I very much empathize with those who are losing everything, just because they live in the wrong country or don't have the same means/resources as others. The money they make on IMVU is a matter of survival for many of them. Having it snatched away, and then being dismissed so unfeelingly when they try to bring up their issues isn't cool, professional, or what is called for. smdh

I believe IMVU can do better than this.

I'm wondering if the delay in verification processing is directly related to catalog size. Some catalogs are vast. That and the obvious run on creators rushing to sign up..yeah...lol

Sort of offtopic, but when in the hell is IMVU going to work on making a better forum platform.

It's incredibly dated.
I herd an ex moderator say that IMVU was "thinking about it" in like 2011.


It has been asked for many years to upgrade the forums. IMVU hasn't decided it is a priority... yet. That's what Staff tells the mods when we ask.

Yet... I still believe in Unicorns. :lol:


So what that means is probably never...
I've heard of the difficulty moderators have moderating with this current platform and me heart goes out to you guys.

Reasons why I am glad GASRforum was moved offsite our forum doesn't look like it was coded in 2003.

Update regarding account verification

Please note that the new system for submitting your information for account verification to us via help tickets is currently down for maintenance. Please accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience. We are processing all requests that have already been submitted and notifications will be sent to those individuals as the verification process is complete.

We will update here in the forums as well as via an IMVU Inbox message to all Creators as soon as possible when you can proceed with account verification steps again. Expect an update by the end of today.

Thank you.

If I were you all I'd really read this before signing anything.



This^ I have worked for another company that forces you to wave your rights to trial by jury. " Arbitration " -- This can be a good thing, and also very bad. Companies do this to protect themselves from various laws that federal governments would otherwise have weight in. Protect themselves from their employees/patrons.

Any company that wants you to forfeit your rights, to use their services is distasteful. In my case, it was " Sign away your rights or you can't work for us. "

To be honest I'd rather conduct my art offsite on this point.
If IMVU now opened their hands to me after years of telling me what I do for them isn't valid

- Refusing to do anything about Art Theft even when moderators wanted to help
- Removing GASR
- Putting a credit cap

I wouldn't trust them for one minute to protect me or what I make LOL
Nor do I think they deserve it.

This just happened!

I sent in all my w8ben forms as an australian signed sealed and delivered 2 days ago.

NOW I get a message from Imvu saying they cannot process as im a US resident and have to send in w9 forms.


so I calmly send back a reply stating all I need to do has been done since im an Australian and to check again.

I also thought ill talk to an agent since im VIP.

its now apparent I have attached to MY casefile all the personal information of another imvu developer. B**** S****

The agent asked for screen shots which igave. and then he said hed go look so I waited 10 minutes or so. he returned. to ask if im still here and if there was anything else I needed. I said ?? yes ofc I have another persons info here and I cant be verified as you think im in the US based on his information. and he closed our session.


so now my case is closed? im a legitimate ,straight forward application complying with everything asked of me.


ps. the B**** S***** isn't swearing its the name of the person whos info I have.



This is crazy!! They need to get a handle on this Ive seen this posted a couple diff times saying they received someone elses information in their help ticket! So Not Cool


I wish you guys would get this fixed, at least. This is my biggest worry about it all is others obtaining our SSN or whatever is used in other countries. Whether by some goof up or by hacking. this needs to be addressed! This is the second time i, myself, have seen this (because i can't stay behind my screen and read every single post because of family and job). If it can be guaranteed that our information would be safe, i may change my tune on this subject. that or make it so that its not as much of a necessity. hell, idc if i'd be charged for not giving my SSN to IMVU for getting the payout like if i was from outside the US. I just don't want to risk others obtaining my info like has actually been happening! I know others might not agree with that but it would help to calm many, at least!

Don't waste your time. Imvu had stopped supporting artists when they banned art sale in the forums. Otherwise a system would have been implemented. If you're not a creator or a consumer, you're not an important factor.

It's sad but my impression.
P.S. Thanks for sticker information.
