Imvu Invite Etiquette (part two)

imvu guide on meeting people in imvu rooms
I wrote a post about imvu inviting a while ago but had a few more things to add.

When you invite someone ask if they other are busy before you get to far into a conversation.

When the other person is getting very slow in responding then using short replies (and not because you’re in the heat of things) offer to get together later to give them an out if they’re busy.

When someone invites you try to at least say something in the decline field. It acknowledges them. The exception is a public room with people because they won’t see it anyway.

When you invite someone if they can’t accept or don’t reply send a note, even if it’s just to say, I just wanted to say HI! It increases the chance of being accepted and reinforces that feeling of wanting to talk with them.

If you’re doing random invites try to at least have something interesting to say or an interesting room or something in common or that you can comment on. You don’t call someone and not have something to say, especially someone you don’t know but might like to.

If you crash early or in the middle of things and you’re not my best friend, if you don’t send a note I’m gonna be a lot harder to get a hold if in the future.

  1. a lot of these things are just thoughtfulness and courtesy, but yea, that’s so -often in short supply here. its helpful to have a reminder. and yea, i etiquette is super important because feelings are so often hurt. and since i’m sure most of us didn’t have imvu growing up, certainly our parents didn’t, there was new Miss imvu manners. so you have to just work it out alone. ooh Miss imvu-manners sounds like a great idea for a theme here.

  2. Yeah nobody teaches you this stuff. Some of it’s common sense but it’s important to reaffirm it and point out some best practices. Other people may have some good ideas to add though too.

    Is there a way to stop being declined?

    I think Kait’s new post on this topic is a big help. i love the new message feature. even before it, a thoughtful, interesting, intriguing, sweet message was always the most effective way to get someone’s attention.

    • A thoughtful, interesting, intriguing, sweet message is always great. But it’s also a great way to say hello and bring yourself to someone’s attention, even if it’s just a short hello. I usually look at my missed invites and recent messages to see if there’s anyone interesting I should go talk to first.
