OK so, in the previous part, My Findings and Thoughts on the New Virily Layout – a Thorough Report on Some of The Changes PT. 1, I wrote about the new stuff that I noticed was implemented with the new Virily layout and changes, and there I mentioned that “…I understood there were just a couple of new things while the other stuff mostly stayed the same or just being rearranged…”, but they are not just rearranged, there are also some Serious Glitches that appeared with these changes like it happened with the first site change long ago so the photos in some of our old posts are still missing and that is not fixed since then which I hope won’t happen again with this change and the glitch that appeared with it (I wrote to the admin about it if they were not aware of it so we’ll see… :/), so now I will present you the old stuff that is Rearranged and some Glitches!!!…:
– first…, I want to add something which I noticed today (could be it’s just a temporary glitch while changes are still in the process) and that is that the “Legend” status on our Profiles changed into “Newbie”…! I know that the Profile Views (which I wrote about in the PT. 1) are counting from zero now like we are all new users (even though the other figures like the number of posts and comments beside it are saying the opposite) but not sure why would we be “Newbies” again…! 😐
– the second thing I noticed here and was a little confused about are the Notifications …! Since I was there while the changes were happening, at first, all the notifications were in one place like usual… Then, at one point, the notifications with the number of Virils we earned disappeared and only the ones showing the upvotes and comments stayed… I thought it was a temporary glitch or a bug as part of the changes implementing process but no, it stayed like that so that made me worried a little bit but then I found the Virils page in the More section of the Profile Menu which shows all the Virils we earned as we earn them but I find this change a little impractical and now I will elaborate why…:
First, it does have some of its advantages since it was one of the things some members complained about earlier and asked notifications to be separated therefore easier to browse and answer but now there is a couple of other problems if you ask me… First, when someone upvotes our post we usually like to know if it’s only upvoted or the person also opened the post so in order to see that you have to open Another page (the Virils page) and search the notification with the same time as the upvote notification…! It wouldn’t be that much of a problem if all the other Viril notifications weren’t in the same place all mixed up…! What I mean is that since I’m opening a lot of posts or when we are receiving a lot of notifications or Virils and since we’re not able to delete any of those earned Virils notifications (on the Virils page) now, sometimes it can be hard browsing all those notifications to find the “matching” one…
For example…, like I wrote in the post I published three days ago, Thank You Post and Some Virily Info Could Be You Never Knew… 😉 (btw not sure why but I got a lot of views but ANY comments in that post), I’m currently opening all of your Quizzes and Polls I missed while I was away and giving you points that way since I still haven’t started being really active so I will start commenting and opening all the other posts later, so there is a lot of earned Virils notifications I receive on the Virils page for that which I can’t delete so sometimes if I want to find the specific notification it can be really annoying, because when all the notifications were on the Notifications page I was deleting all those notifications so it was easier to find the important ones…
Also, now when I’m opening a lot of posts at the same time and there are no popping-up and top right corner notifications about the opened posts it’s hard to be sure if the post opened right, if you got Virils for it, to know how much more posts are left to open and not to lose track when you reached the opening posts limit unless you are constantly following what is going on on the Virils page at the same time and constantly reloading the page…! 😐
And even though the new look/design of the Notifications page looks very nice I have to say it looks a little confusing, at least for me, since there is not much difference in the font colors and size between the links and plain text, or I’m just not used to it… :/
– the third thing is, actually ARE, Posts and Posts PAGES…!
One of the things I often mentioned above is the More section of the Profile Menu… THAT section is now important because it now contains several more options and sections of your Profile Menu so besides being able to see your posts in the Posts section of the main Profile Menu you are able to see them TOO under the Posts option placed in the More section of the Profile Menu…!
Why is that important… Well one of the NEW problems and glitches that occurred with these changes is that some of us found that some posts are currently missing…!!! Well, at least in ONE of the Posts pages…! Some posts are currently missing ONLY in the Posts section of the main Profile Menu while you can find ALL your posts under the Posts option of the More section of the Profile Menu..!
ALSO, on that page (the Posts page in the More section of your Profile Menu) you can find all your Approved, Pending and Drafts posts which all you are able to Edit, Delete and Report now…!
I just hope this problem will be solved and not left as the problem with the missing photos is, or hopefully all these new and old glitches will be fixed soon with these new changes that seem to still be happening on the site…
