Improving your connection to Virily!

,I am going to start with some known Virily issues and workarounds. Please understand that I am not condoning the need for or use of workarounds.

  1. Safari connections to Virily – at times Safari is a limited browser; in fact, many Safari users report slowness when connecting to the site.
    1. Try a different browser such as Chrome or Mosaic.
    2. Clear your browser cache (there is an impact in that you lose all stored passwords for all sites when doing this.)
  2. Chrome users on Windows – often experience 524 errors.
    1. Reduce your number of open browser windows. The more you have, the more taxing the browser is on your computer.
    2. Clear your browser cache (there is an impact in that you lose all stored passwords for all sites when doing this.)
    3. Start Chrome in safe mode (extensions off). Sometimes Browser extensions impact your ability to stay connected.
    4. Try Edge or IE.

The reality of browsers today is that they do so much more than the original browsers did. If you look at Opera or Mosiac, you will be reminded of the old Intender Explorer or the Netscape browser of years ago. Simple, and ultimately you get what you get. The modern browsers include support for Quicktime, Adobe Flash, Java, image reading, and video rendering (MP3, MP4).

Every browser is different. The musical, FireFox, Opera, Intenet Explorer, Chrome, Safari, Edge all have different implementations of the browsing window.

I do not use these posts to excuse the 503, 504, and 524 errors. I just want to make sure that everyone knows there are options. If something doesn’t work, try a different way! I would much prefer the Virily Admin team to post something other than articles about renting apartments and or buying a couch. But in the two-plus years, I’ve been here, they communicate less and less. Since I still get paid from this site, I am moving on without expecting the admin team to respond.

  1. I preferer to use Chrome. I’m inclined to just leave a site that isn’t’ working right for me rather than mess with work-arounds I’m not sure will work even if I try them. There is always somewhere else to work until things are working — if I even remember to come back then. Since no earnings are showing for last month, this month, or this last week, and I have been active during that time, I’m not very motivated to keep working here until I see something happen. I was paid once before I went inactive for a few months.

  2. I almost always clear cache every time I open a browser, and the main one is Firefox for it’s my daily browser, but if the error comes I will definitely try to use Chrome, sometimes it work but sometimes don’t. To be sure, I will continue to reload until successful or bored, and of course, it will be time consuming.

    • I do truly understand.

      I’ve been testing the site with a number of different browsers. I will say that with edge you get more 524 errors than with the other browsers I am using.
      The site is much slower with Safari.

      But, that is your browser, and you should use what you like to use!

  3. This is good information. I always receive 504 error though I try different browsers when one fails. Chrome is not that bad.

    I’m still expecting to be paid…for the first time. Not sure why they’re late.

    I miss Netscape.
