I can understand credit card validation for people over 18 (though even that can be very limiting) but I can't think of any way for them to verify if a person is 13 or not.

I definitely think there should be an age limit. I mean it's hard to enforce it I know, but I don't think it's safe for little kids to be on the internet. There are too many predators out there ready to prey on them. It's bad enough as it is! One time, I ended up in a chat with a child that was 10! How in the world do parents not know or worse still, ALLOW a 10 year old to chat freely with whomever the site sends them!?

-flustered- more and more I think IMVU SHOULD have an age limit. I saw an 10 year old. Yes I think IMVU is a safe place but there is no 100% promise on that! Also There has to be a maturity level. Age means nothing, its how mature a person is..

Perverts come at all ages. There are plenty of college students who are perverts as well as older people. Restricting older users would only make them mad, and cause a loss of customers. Surely there must be a better way to get rid of perverts out there.

Maybe a 0 tolerance policy? If someone is reported and it's determined based on one single report that they are a pervert unfit for the site they could get an instant ban right on the spot.

Apologies to the younger members they won't like this, But yes. IMVU should be adult only. The bare minmum as its a legally accepted age should be 18 I myself have a no under 21's limit to my 1-1 chats as im 46 i think it only ethical and right. We should let children be childen they all grow up too fast these days, they should be outside playing with friends engaging in sports etc than stuck in a bedroom on the internet in a client like this and their presence has meant that that the adults in imvu have lost out significantly with the loss of the chat casts and half of the ap catalog.


edited to add: Imvu made CRASS AND STUPID decision when they closed the chat casts One perv was caught and more could have been caught if the casts were allowed to remain open decent adults would report any incidents they came across. I certainly would.

i am 14 and i am in an outrage i am extremely mature as mature as a 16 year old.

I strongly disagree this awesome program should be for everyone as long as u use it the rite way.

I would guess 13+ But no limit on how old you can be [i think there should be groups like when you sign up you have so many people close to your age that you can chat with]
