Hey, please take the time to comment on the author's content…

When I first left teaching, I didn’t leave teaching. I just went from an elementary classroom to a classroom full of people wanting to learn specific software. It was a softer transition for me. Later I did inside sales and then later helpdesk. I realized very early on in the process of inside sales that I wasn’t a good computer salesperson. I spent time with each person focusing on what they were trying to do with the computer. As a helpdesk person, I found a job that I enjoyed. I like helping people. I don’t consider it a problem to figure out what is happening to someone’s computer and trying to see if we can get them back to normal. Computers can be complex systems and helping people often help themselves.

You see, every time you figure out how to do something, if the problem happens to you, you know what to do to fix it. That said, there are simple realities that can’t be fixed. When I joined Virily nearly two years ago now, there was a rule. The rule was quite simple, and it has never hanged. If you post and follow the rules of the site at some point, you will be made a verified user. All non-verified users have their posts moderated before they are allowed on the site. I remember when I first started being three days behind. I would post something on Monday that was published on Thursday. Sometimes, the admins would have personal lives and would not moderate posts on the weekends. I can’t say that I blame them taking personal time. Everyone deserves personal time.

Please note though, posting comments on other people’s posts about the fact that your posts aren’t being moderated fast enough isn’t appropriate. If you wish to complain about the rate of moderation, please feel free to do so in the comments of this post if you are frustrated post here! This post is about the moderation process. Please however don’t ever post in another person’s post that isn’t about the moderation process. That isn’t very nice. There is not a single writer on this site that doesn’t spend time and effort on their posts. Please don’t hijack their comments to fit your agenda. Feel free to post here when it is open and about the problems with the speed of moderation by the Virily Admin team.

I understand the frustration, but I respect the posts of other writers. Yes, sometimes the comment threat goes well past the original post. But unless the post is about spotting on Virily don’t hijack it.

Be kind, respect the rules and the other writers on our site!

  1. I am sorry also among those members who are waiting for the approval of posts. Today is exactly one week since I had the last post approved. I do not know if I’m angry or sad or disappointed. I understand that admins can not approve all posts in one day, but for a week I find it a little too much. I sent a message and asked them nicely, but I did not receive any reply.

  2. Is this the place where to complain about approval times? Yay! ?
    I think I mentioned this thing in another post but my intention wasn’t to hijack, it was merely a little digression that came from something related to the topic. ?
    I’m not sure what event you’re referring to, hopefully it was nothing serious. ?
    I didn’t know there used to be a rule, it’s a pity it never got implemented.
