Saving your IMVU chat logs
I take a lot of pictures because they are memories but the chat text or log is also sometimes helpful to have. So I try to remember to save my chat logs when I’m leaving. I am trying to get better but I still do forget sometimes. I’m getting better by saving the chats along the way if it’s important or after a sexy chat. This is helpful in case I forget when I close the window or if I crash.
I save the text into a word document. I copy a line or two with my mouse then use Control A, to select All of the text. Control C, copies the text and then Control V when i have a new document open. You can close the window after you copy the chat to the clip board but you can’t close IMVU all together or it will erase the chat in your clipboard.
After I paste the chat, I look at my pictures and select the most appropriate one, click on it and copy that, and then paste it into the top of the chat. I find that it’s much easier to remember a chat if I have a picture to go with the text. When you save a lot of chats this makes it easier to find the right chat. Try to describe the most important aspect of the chat, but the difference between saving pics is that you don’t have to include everyone’s names since the names are in the text. So when you search on a name, all of the chats with that name in them, will automatically show up.
I admit that I don’t go back and read chats as much as I probably should. But having them is helpful because you never know when someone is going to misunderstand something. I also find it’s interesting because I can search a directory on my computer for someone’s name and know if I ever talked to them before. This is helpful to me since I’m really bad with names.
I save chats but don’t share them with people very often, other than sometimes Holly or Gabby, the two people I’m the closest to. My general rule of thumb is that I don’t share anything that isn’t in everyone’s best interest. I don’t want anyone to think that what they say to me privately will get around to other people. The same goes for pictures. I take a lot of pictures but I try very hard to not use them in a way to hurt or annoy anyone. We all rely on our ability to speak freely. That’s part of the fun of this place, that what you say here stays here. So have fun and just use this as a way to hold onto the good feelings you get here.
