Thank You Virily!… :)

Hi all!

Like you probably all noticed there were some notifications at the top of the page letting us know what was and what is currently going on with the site… There were some technical difficulties that were said are now fixed, I am very glad for that and for the proper and a really great way of Virily to inform us!… I am glad they found a great way to inform us and I hope that will continue to be the manner of addressing things in the future too…

Also, the dashboard finally updated so I’m also glad the value of the Viril now seems to go up since the activity on the site increased after the problem(s) is/are now fixed…

I would also like to inform Virily (if they are already not aware of that) there are some technical difficulties with the photos in the posts now… – there aren’t any cover photos when you open a post… And photos in some old posts are invisible too… I suppose (and hope) you know about this malfunction…

Thanks!

PS I got a lot of comments on my previous post(s), haven’t managed to answer all of them yet, but I will and thank you for the feedback!!!!! πŸ™‚

  1. I found out yesterday that there is a bug several users have exploited that gets them much higher virily totals than they truly earned. That type of action forces the admins to not be focused on problems to get rid of the people cheating.

    But it also leads me to believe that some of the issues we are experiencing may in fact be directly related to the “cheating.” The method for cheating generates significant traffic of a non-standard type, which ultimately causes the site to devote more resources to teh bad actor.

    Personally I think anyone caught using those cheats should be banned from the site. But taking all the Virils away, is the least that should happen.

    We can’t figure out what is broken, if there are people with “broken ethics” causing the system to be bifurcated.

    • Thank you very much for the information, I am glad some things became more clear now…..!

      Could be… :/

      Are you talking about a bug that enables people have more traffic (views/referred memebers) or something else, because there are some other similar bugs on the site I noticed but not referred to the traffic but the mistake in the programme…..?

      Albert just commented on one of my posts about such member: https://virily.com/other/can-someone-explain-fake-user-45500-virils-fake-users/#comment-247407, is that something you meant…? Read my answer to his comment too where I’m talking about some of the (suspicious, at least to me…:/) first places in the ranks….. I asked one of them, she said she is sharing her posts all the time…

      Of course, every bug and mistake in the programme should be fixed…

    • So if you need more time to write an article and occasionally save it again to save what you added/changed/etc. there is a bug… I thought they will fix it but it is still not changed. Once I wanted to save what I wrote and changed in the drafts article and the page that loaded was “Cheating uh?”, and I had to go through my article again and remember what I changed (what I could remember…! :/) and then save it again…

    • And also the problem is that it very often happens that when you save a draft – especially when it comes to polls, it doesn’t save what you wrote so you have to do it all again and again and again until it accepts the change you made…..!

    • I think the whole software needs to be better thought through and straightened, cause once, all the drafts disappeared after they made these changes on the site (you probably remember that problem, like some other too back then…..), and I was told that once (before that) all the drafts that were older than a month were deleted by the admins, so now, if you don’t want your drafts to disappear or be deleted again you have to save them again if they are close to the 30 days old…

    • And also, since there is a problem with drafts that because they sometimes don’t save the changes you made, especially during the time of the “loading the page” problem, you feel insecure so you save them occasionally during the writing…

        • I’m not sure what (/who) you mean…? Yes, but how will you know who used it on purpose and who didn’t…..? You shouldn’t be taking things that seriously and personally here and bother so much about the things you can’t change… Only admins can change things when they make the site serious and proper.

          PS You didn’t answer me what traffic bug you meant, my thought was that it was more referred to some other ways of fake traffic….?

          • It is a way to generate fake traffic. I don’t take it personally I just don’t support those who get caught doing it. The admins will be removing Virils from the folks they have caught.

            But thank you so much for your concern. That really means a lot to me. πŸ™‚

        • Sorry, fake >trafficpoints< (=other ways of earning points, like the one I described above)…..?

          I suppose there are people who earn A LOT of points with fake traffic (I mean views by it) and I don't support hacking the system too, but when it comes to the thing I described above it is the site's "fault" or the ones' that made the programme that way and it surely should be fixed in case it is not intented to be that way….. (It shouldn't be intentionally used too, but unfortunately other malfunctions with the drafts almost make you to have to use it that way) Drafts are made to be Drafts, for as long it is neccessary…

          • That is a great question, I would say both. Knowing that you are getting” something for nothing and continuing to do it is bad. Not catching that behavior and letting it happen is also bad.

        • For example…, I recently had to save the same draft several times because the emoticon I was putting was constantly disappearing after saving a draft or applying the article for publishing… So I had to bring it back several times in the drafts until I found a way for it to be finally visible…! 😐

        • Yes, it surely is, but then it should be the first thing that should have been fixed already by now, while it is like that for a couple of months… They were changing things on the site that were less important (the visuals and sometimes some very very not important visuals) instead of the real problems…!

    • PS I wanted to ask you who did you manage to talk to, how it happened…? I’m surprised they communicated that way and on that theme with a member, actually that you’ve even got the response…! I asked them the similar question once but no reply…
      I’m glad they will solve something…

        • It would also be great if they informed Us too if they changed something in our earnings and especially how much to be sure we’ve got the right amount, cause there is now that confusing situation on the dashboard, it’s like it says 1 number in the Total, the other (a little larger) in the Last Month, and at the end of the previous month it was larger than both numbers…
          I mean, there was a bug, no one is fault for that so I suppose almost everyone had Some “fake points” at some point because saving drafts wasn’t working well (I hope they fixed that too now….. – not just the “glitch”), so it would be fair to be informed about the exact sum we earned (or the sum that was reduced and the reasons for it) therefore not to question whether it’s the right sum or not, like it happend in one of the previous months when there was some very unusual number in the balance (no one explained it) and I’m not even sure the earnings were calculated well after that…

    • Thanks, glad you agree…! πŸ™‚ The missing cover photos problem is happening with some of the recent new posts, and the photos are missing in the old posts… Maybe you haven’t looked in all of your old posts…

    • Thank you…! I am glad you agree and thankfully in this post the photo is visible, although I’m not sure about other posts…

      I am also preparing another article about some other things, but not regarding Virily itself but myself, cause I was accused I am “copy-pasting comments”… Do you have the same impression about my simple and short general comments I am writing sometimes…..?

          • No, not about copy-pasted comment I mean. What I mean is I have noticed the way of commenting and the tendency to commenting from all friends all these time. Especially about you is how you tend to give similar brief comments repeatedly. But it does not matter to me because it is completely right.

        • Thank you. Yes, I understood what you said, but thought maybe the impression of my comments is that they are “copy-pasted”….. I know they are sometimes not elaborative comments but I never copy-paste the same comment everywhere… I’m writing an article about this because one person here accused me of copy-pasting and writing “spammy’ comments – she, on the contrary of you, thought I’m just copy-pasting…..! 😐

          • Hmm… maybe next time you should elaborate a little?

            For example in this post, you commented with elaboration and with your feelings and you opened up a conversation!!

            Well, I’m not saying all comments should open up a conversation – there will be times that we just wanted to show our love and appreciation but really have nothing much to add, so we end up with “nice, looks delicious” kind of comments… (I do that sometimes too :p)

            I just feel we could be a little more creative at times, just by adding a little more (or some humour, which Albert does best in) and hence the comment will have a more personal touch to it and in your case, not look like you copy and pasted.

            These are just my 2 cents and in no way do I feel you copy and pasted. πŸ™‚

          • Thank you @alibb very much!…

            Well, it is like this…:
            – I didn’t elaborate the title because I didn’t plan to elaborate my comment, it just happened…
            – Of course, I agree!…
            – Yes, but not all of us are comedians or just currently not in that mood…..
            – Thank you, I am very glad for that!!!

        • Hahhahaah, you are certainly right… πŸ˜‰ Unfortunately, there are many people like that (maybe sometimes including us too… ;/)) and it is very hard to deal with….. :/ Or shouldn’t be dealt anyway…? :/

        • Thank you @alibb very much!…

          Well, it is like this…:
          – I didn’t elaborate the title because I didn’t plan to elaborate my comment, it just happened…
