People don’t really leave
Every business or organization has turnover, and IMVU does too of course. But a surprising amount of the people who leave here and coming back. Whatever reason you leave for tends to fade and eventually we all get lonely and reminisce and miss the fun times that we had.
In some ways that’s good. This is very flexible and you can leave and then come back at some point when things slow down or you feel the need. It hurts a little bit to leave and the people you leave definitely hurt too, but you might be surprised how happy they are too except you back when you are able to come back.
One important thing to remember when you are leaving, is to keep the option open to come back, no matter how sure you are that you won’t have to. Don’t permanently disable your AVI. You can voluntarily suspend your account. That way you won’t be tempted to come back easily. You would have to contact customer service in order to reactivate it.
One downside of that is that the company knows it and they suspend people and that only makes them go start a new account which means more money for the company. That means the company gaines financially from suspending their users, and this creates a very adversarial situation.
