Helping Each Other on Virily

I have noticed other users posting about how we can help Virily stay afloat.  

This is a great idea as we are all striving for the same thing. As far as I know, none of us wants Virily to go away. If you come up with ideas or have questions or concerns, feel free to share them here. We can all check back to this post and if we don’t have an answer maybe with all of us coming together, we can solve the problem. I decided to share a few links for you that are interesting to read written by users about Virily. It also helps to read not just the post but the comments on the links I have provided. If we can continue reaching out to each other and answering questions hopefully Virily will continue to thrive.  

DocAndersen has several posted:

  1. Way too many rules for posts especially about how many words you should write in a post. For example I make art pics and i don’t have an ability to write about every pic an essay =__= i just want people to enjoy the images. And with all that it’s way too much effort for a very low payment. Now i’m trying to get my 2-nd payment cause it’s almost 10$ and i’m leaving.

  2. Since I don’t know why these things are happening, it is hard to know how to feel about them. Security makes your life inconvenient, but so long as that is less than the damage of being insecure then the payoff is worth it

    GDPR compliance is mandatory, something we’re just going to have to live with and again it is for the greater good- a price we should pay gladly

    But without any declarations from the admins, it isn’t possible to determine if the flaws we experience are by design or caused by poor implementation

    • I was thinking about that comment I sent you, and I think that if there is really a problem with discussing issues they will probably inform us not to write about it nor would they publish our polls and posts about them, especially they wouldn’t put them in the Featured… I wrote them yesterday and I’m waiting… If they answer and tell me “yes, it is forbidden” or “don’t write about it” then ok, but if they don’t I will surely doubt what Bee said and continue posting as the admins surely don’t bother publishing and Featuring that kind of posts… She may has been said something like that but maybe in a different manner which she maybe didn’t understand well and correct (it already happened before) and she didn’t explain what exactly she was said so we can’t be sure if what she said is the exact true… I don’t say she is lying but she may be understood things the wrong way!

        • Of course… I would like to know what exactly was said to Her in order to be sure but she won’t answer, even saying I’m harassing her… She doesn’t understand that if you say something like that you should put personal conflicts aside and be professional… If she was not capable of that then she shouldn’t comment, especially that she knew whose posts is this post about…
          Why would she be the only one who was told such thing if that is true…

          • Since you don’t know why she would be the only one told, you can’t know if it is true or not. Perhaps she isn’t allowed to tell you why. Perhaps she simply doesn’t want to tell you…

            There are plenty of alternative explanations, are you really comfortable concluding anything in this case?

        • Yes, because like I said, if that was the truth the admins wouldn’t even publish our posts about the issues and we would certainly be informed about it, and here is why…..:

          Hi, I and one other member (Doc Andersen) often write posts and polls about the Virily issues and now Carol published a post (poll) with all our polls (links) in one place to help other members be informed about the issues… One other member, Bee Diligent (former Trenna Sue), commented on Carol’s post that the Virily stuff told her not to discuss about the issues, actually she said this: “You have to be careful about participating in some of these. I was specifically told by staff to not discuss issues.”, so I wanted to ask is that true, in order to know how to behave in the future, because I don’t understand why are then our posts and polls about the issues approved or even put in the Featured posts list if it is forbidden to write about such things… This is the link to that post: https://virily.com/virily_poll/helping-each-other-on-virily/ and comment: https://virily.com/virily_poll/helping-each-other-on-virily/#comment-301381

          Thank you very much.

          Their answer::::: “It is not true, you are free to discuss anything :)”

        • Virily is not “CIA” so they would hide important information from the users while at the same time publishing their articles and Featuring them in the Featured posts list!………………….
          And I know Trenna (Bee) from our previous discussions and the things she was writing to me, so I know how she can interpret things…..!

        • And the thing that she wouldn’t want to tell me is ok, but it is not ok not to tell all the people here where she commented… (why comment then… what is the purpose of the comment if not wanting to help.. people who believe her would not comment on our Virily issues articles because of her disinformation then.. awful!)

        • I don’t care which is which, no one is lying here, we have the answer, the right info and that’s it… Important thing is that is a disinformation, that people can freely discuss that, like I said it wouldn’t be logical that it is published and forbidden at the same time…

  3. Million thanks for this very useful posts, saved all these links!!! Let me join to the idea of editing our posts after publishing them. To my mind, this option let us to change information in our posts to make it more relevant (for example, correcting dates of upcoming events & so on) or adding some new interesting facts. Sure that it will be good equally for us and for our readers.

  4. You have to be careful about participating in some of these. I was specifically told by staff to not discuss issues. So my plan is to write, read, comment when I have something worth saying and sharing the posts of others to bring more to the site.

    If we were more encouraging to each other maybe things would simply take care of themselves.

    If even one person clicked on all the tweets and facebook and other social media links every day there would be over 400 views. Read, Write, Comment, Share and Celebrate.

    • She also thinks (someone – not stuff told her) that saying thank you in a comment is spam, she also asked me 3-5 times the same question about sharing, so I am sure the stuff would not publish this kind of posts, and PUT THEM IN THE “FEATURED”, if it was forbidden!!!!!

        • Well, when someone I politely answer to doesn’t answer to my polite question I have to do that sometimes, but no, I read that in one of your posts where You wrote about it, if I remember correctly, or it was a comment somewhere – about thank you messages… But no worries… My best regards!

        • I’m sorry but you made me a lot of drama for no reason, that is when You were reading My thoughts and also the very wrong way…..

          Since you sent me a private message now about the things stuff wrote you and that you wanted to send that to Carol, maybe, if you already mentioned it here, and you say it is true, and you wanted to help, maybe you should publish it here so everyone could know what EXACTLY it is about and not just interpret Your (or my) words… That way we all would be sure about this, because, like I said in my comment, it is not clear why would stuff say something like that and on the other hand publish my and Doc’s polls and even put them in the FEATURED posts list, if it is forbidden… No one told US NOTHING about it, not one word from stuff to us, only You, so it would be useful for all of us…

    • Carol, I am really sorry, but I have to comment this one….. I now saw a downvote on my comment that I will check about this thing with the admins… If someone doesn’t understand how important is to know and be sure what EXACTLY is true about this thing she commented I don’t know what to say… You write such a comment about the posts I and Doc are making, you put people on thinking and wondering about it with it, we are all already frustrated because we don’t have answers about this site and trying to help each other by communicating, and then you leave and downvote a try for the EXACT information…..
      Not at all to mention that no one else has/got such information…..

  5. Thanks Carol for posting this, I already informed LaJenna about the issue with some users’ posts not showing up in the Latest (if that is what you meant) when I informed all of you… She also commented on my post so I think she knows… But maybe you meant something else…..?

    Also, I think that problem is now fixed and that all new posts of all members are now again in the Latest, but keep checking that until we get sure about it!…

    • Well that is good, I hope the problem is corrected, she seems to still be having issues. I had not noticed it as I always go to the profiles to see new posts. I hope you don’t mind I posted links of your posts here. I should have asked before I guess. Just trying to help.

      • No, she doesn’t… All her new posts are now in the Latest too… I think she posted about it before she noticed that…
        Nooo!!!, not at all, I’m glad you posted it, thank you…!, it is good for all the people to notice it and be informed… And good you posted all the other posts (Doc’s) too, it’s good to have them all in one place!!! 🙂
        Although I must say I don’t agree with some of the Doc’s sayings in his posts, he is trying to explore something that I think from the start is not the situation here… I think all the people were having the same issue, everyone were complaining on the same issue too – having less views, and this bug explained it well I think, so I think it wasn’t about the user experience but the site!… That is just my (logical) opinion… 😉

          • Of course, but it was clear to me from the start, it looks like an overall problem…; although if there are some users that don’t have this problem then we could discuss it as a user problem… Yes, they probably don’t want to comment on the issues while working on them…, I guess…..? :/

          • Also, some people check the box like they haven’t noticed something, but that doesn’t actually mean it is not happening to them, maybe they just haven’t noticed…

  6. Good idea you have to begin this post.
    1) Not knowing what to expect with Virily I thought I would give it a try and see if it could be a learning experience with hopes of it being more. Not sure how it’s going to work out going forward.
    2) Yes, questions, but some are so obvious it seems redundant to go over them and others are difficult to put into words without seeming offensive to owners of the site.
    3) I have decided, after all, that the site should allow posters to edit their posts. If it means that post goes incognito until it goes through their editing process again, so be it.
    It will be interesting to see what comes of your effort in this post.

    • Thank you for participating.. I agree with you, and have always asked why we could not edit our posts after being published. Never got an answer. Wish me luck as I have no idea if anything will become of the issues. We can only hope for something positive.

  7. https://virily.com/lajenna/ shares a new problem: My option for a post image is gone now so I can’t post anything.

    Many writers here have been concerned why the latest posts are not visible. I have only one answer that can help this situation. Carol DM told me she does what I am about to tell you,

    Just go to all your follower’s profile and check daily to see if they have posted anything new. I know that for a long time I have missed commenting on many of my favorite followers. Now, I try not to miss my faithful followers posts. I double check daily to see if I have missed any. This is the only way I can see to help frustrated members keep an eye on one anothers posts.

    Have you tried my one and only solution? If anyone has another idea we would all appreciate the heads-up. Thank you carol DM, and everyone that has been trying to educate us all about this issue. I know Carol DM, tasartcraft have tried to keep us informed. I know others have tried to help, so I would like to thank them as well.
