I have been an Elite user on website Yelp for four years in a row, but going into the fifth year (2020) I lost my elite status. At this very moment I am unsure what the reason is for me losing my Elite status, but since losing it I have reduced the time spent putting together reviews.
I have been a Yelp user since 2014; posting 625 business and restaurant reviews along with 14909 pictures. The picture number is insane if you look at the amount that other users have shared which most do not come close to that number.
Going forth, I would like to conduct business on Virily the same way I conducted business on Yelp as far as sharing my restaurant and business reviews. Other than a dominant American based exposure on Yelp, at least I get paid on Virily. And besides, it will just introduce other countries to the types of businesses and restaurants we have in Chicago.
Losing my Elite status after so many contributions throughout the years; it feels as though I am not wanted on the website. Situations like this I have to keep reminding myself to not let it affect my emotions because it is a website. Who knows how this website is ran whether it be by human or computer based. I do know damn well that my contributions were worthy enough of maintaining that Elite status.
In the future, it will be a relief writing on one site and not both Yelp and Virily as I have been these past three years. And it will give me extra content to share with my readers on Virily in the form of food and restaurants as I shared on Yelp.
