NEW Creator Tiers System

Introducing the NEW Creator Tiers System
Dear Creators,



We are excited to let you know that we have been working on several initiatives related to your success on IMVU, including our new IMVU Studio BETA tool, the Creator Ads Program and more.



In addition, we’re introducing a new program designed to acknowledge Creators for their hard work and contributions. After months of engineering and testing with a small group of real IMVU Creators, we are rolling out a new 10-level Creator Tiers system today, June 24th.



You are leaders of the IMVU community, and we see that your success is tied to the ways you make a positive impact for IMVU members, such as your avatar, your designs, and your shop. Participating in the IMVU “experience” means everything from creating great fashion, furniture, rooms, and more, to connecting with users and sharing your passion for the platform. Engaging in these activities promotes your brands and encourages healthy sales that support your IMVU lifestyle. We are a team in your success, because IMVU also benefits when you are successful.



Our new model is designed to encourage activity in the platform and promote increases in your sales. This will provide more opportunities to new as well as established Creators.



The new Tiers System renews every 30 days and focuses on two primary categories: Recent Product Creation and Sales. Creators also have opportunities to gain Bonus Points while they hone their skills.



We encourage you to keep your catalog updated with high quality products on a consistent basis as IMVU users look for what’s new. Make sure your derivations and original meshes appear obviously unique. Put your own personality and style into your products. When you put extra care into the items you create, IMVU members will notice and so will we!



Just like today, you will be able to see your current Tier status on the Creator Dashboard. At the start of each month, everyone’s status will be recalculated, so that active accounts can move through the Tier system again.



As we roll out this new system, we will be adding more opportunities to accumulate points and will keep you posted as these new benefits are launched. Also, we will be phasing out Stickers as part of our Sales metrics. This may impact your Sales points over the next few weeks. By the beginning of August, Sticker sales will be excluded from Sales metrics entirely.



Additional information about the Tiers System can be found in this FAQ: im.vu/help916



If you have questions regarding your status at any time, you can contact our Customer Care team here https://help.imvu.com/s/contactus.

Hi Creators,

Please see below for more answers and updates. We’re also updating our FAQs with the same information.



Where is my Creator Dashboard?

To find your Creator Dashboard, go to https://www.imvu.com/creators/creator_dashboard.php and click on the "My Tier" tab.



Are Helpers included in the “Greeter & Community Volunteers?”

Helpers are normally not included but IMVU Staff reserve the right to make exceptions for long term Helpers who have been exceptional in the IMVU Discussions.



Are Outfits, Bundles, and Decorated Rooms counted in the Tiers System?


None of these product types are counted as Creations but they are counted as “Sales (derived).” Each individual item within them is also counted as “Sales (derived).”



Are Avatars Counted as Meshes?

If an avatar contains a mesh file it is considered a mesh. If an avatar only includes .xaf files (animation files) it will be counted as an animation.



What are the exact Sales, Creation and Bonus Point activities needed for each Tier level?

Since we may have the need to adjust these levels over time, especially in the next couple of months, we are not announcing the exact numbers at this time.



Do products need to go through Peer Review to be counted in the Tiers System?

Creation metrics don’t require Peer Review. Sales metrics and Sellable Items require Peer Review.



Have Credit Transfer Limits changed in the new Tiers System?

The limits for each Tier are not drastically different. Tier 0 and 10 Creators have the same limits as Tier 0 and Tier 7 in the old system. Tiers 1 through 9 Creators have the same limits as the old system, but they are spread evenly among 9 levels instead of 6.



In the “My Tier” Dashboard what’s the difference between “Total Points Achieved” and “Total Points?”

“Total Points Achieved” are the actual points you earned. “Total Points” are what you receive after Maximum Points are factored in.

Here's an example:

You earn 60 points for Creation. That is your “Total Points Achieved”
“Maximum Points” allows up to 45 points for Creation
Your “Total Points” for Creation is 45 (after the “Maximum Points” is factored in)



The “My Tier” Dashboard date range is confusing. How do I read it?

Your Tier level is determined by your activity from the previous calendar month. If your date range is “2020-May-01 and 2020-Jun-01” your Tier score is looking at the month of May, or May 1 through 31.

NOTE: previously I had said that the activity was calculated every 30 days. I misspoke and have corrected the information in the FAQ.



ADDED JUNE 25, 2020



Hi Creators,

Here are the answers to some of your questions - keep your eye out for more updates and answers as we review all of your feedback.



Where is my Pro Badge?

Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention. The Pro badge is not appearing for Creators who just achieved Pro level in the new system. This is a bug and will be fixed. Pro badges for these Tier levels should appear starting in July.



How Many Points Does it Take To Achieve Each Tier Level?

10 points - Tier 1
20 points -Tier 2
30 points - Tier 3
40 points -Tier 4
50 points -Tier 5
60 points -Tier 6
70 points -Tier 7
80 points -Tier 8
90 points -Tier 9
100 points -Tier 10




What are the Submission Fees for Each Tier Level?

500 credits - Tier 0
465 credits -Tier 1
430 credits - Tier 2
395 credits -Tier 3
360 credits -Tier 4
325 credits -Tier 5
290 credits -Tier 6
255 credits -Tier 7
220 credits -Tier 8
185 credits -Tier 9
150 credits -Tier 10



Will Peer Review Take Longer because of the new Tiers System?

We’re always actively monitoring Peer Review to make sure there are enough voters to handle the load. After the first 24 hours, products are passing through Peer Review at the same speed as they were before this Tiers change.

Why should I do Peer Review when people are just getting kicked out anyway?

We remove Peer Review privileges for one of two reasons: voting Pass on a very obvious UFI product or not consistently voting with the majority outcome of the product. There’s a misconception that if you correctly fail a product and it ultimately passes that you are at risk of losing your voting privileges. This is not true. We actually expect that most active Peer Reviewers should NOT be at 100% accuracy, and the rule that removes people from Peer Review takes that into account.

Why is the Greeter Program included?

We want to recognize Creators who contribute to the community. If you are unable to join this program we encourage you to participate in Peer Review.

Why are Creation metrics included in the Tiers System? Won’t that cause Creators to flood the catalog?

Creation was included in the previous Tiers System and we feel this is a vital part of being an IMVU Creator. Creators can only achieve a maximum of 45 points for Creating. We think this safety net will de-motivate Creators from flooding their catalogs.


Why are my “New Mesh Submissions” and “New Texture and Animation Submissions” not being counted?

New submissions are calculated each month and your current Tier is based on the previous month of activity. So in June your metrics will reflect activity between May 1 and May 31. This is why products submitted in the current month aren’t affecting your Tier level.

NOTE: changed "May 2" to "May 1." That was a typo.



I don’t understand what Minimum Requirements means.

Each Tier level requires that you have a certain number of products in your catalog. In addition, Tiers 8, 9 and 10 require a minimum number of products created in the last 60 days. These are separate metrics from the “New Mesh Submissions” and “New Texture and Animation Submissions.”


What is the Maximum Points column in the “My Tier” Dashboard?

The maximum Points column shows the highest number of points a Creator can achieve for a category or a metric (activity).

Category - the maximum number of points you can get for the Sales category is 55 points. The maximum number of points you can get for the Creation category is 45 points. The maximum for Bonus Points is 45.

Metric (activity) - here are two examples of maximum points for metrics (activities). The maximum number of points you can get for “Product Sold” is 30. The maximum number of points you can get for Peer Review is also 30.
