Let's make it a happy day, Good Virily News!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Let’s talk about some good news! There were a couple of authors that had an issue back in September and hadn’t been paid since September. They were both paid with the December payment. I am waiting to hear in fact, if the other 3 (it was a total of 5 authors) got paid as well! Good news that they got paid but more importantly, the admin team had promised me that they would fix it. They came through and fixed the issue that is great news!

More good news, I’ve been having a couple of conversations on things we as authors could do to increase the number of views on Virily. There are two types of views that being Virily user views (we get a direct payment for those) and guest views (we get credit for views but we do not get paid for those views). In the last changes to Virily ask for the admin team, I did include reinstating the guest viril for sharing, but for now, we don’t get directly paid. I did want to point out that Virily as an entity gets paid based on the views. They use a program called Google Adsense. You can tell it is the Google toolset because if you put certain words in your post, you will see ads for those items. For example, I like fishing. I would like to have fishing rods. You will see those in this post when you read it!

I got a great question form a user and I don’t know how to answer the question. I love questions that make me think. This question is one I thought I would share with the community. How are many active Virily users there today? Let’s do some happy fun thinking first.

  1. Active at least six days a week includes commenting and posting
  2. Active at least six days a week posting, commenting three days per week or more.
  3. Active at least three days a week
  4. Active one day a week
  5. Active at least once a month
  6. Active at least once a quarter

I will ask those as polls so we can start seeing if there is a way to come up with some numbers. When I first joined Virily there seemed to bet around 300 active authors. I know at least 100 of those authors are now gone. Some have wandered back to the site, wandered away again, and then wandered back.  Ellie points out that when you wander away, it can be difficult to return when the site Is full of negative posts. So let’s find some positive things. How many are active users on Virily today?

PS for sake of poll integrity only pick 1 answer! Pick the one that closest matches your active state!

  1. I used to post and comment everyday here at Virily, but I haven’t been around for about a month when I was busy with something else. I am trying to make it a daily habit to post and comment here everyday again.

    Thanks for sharing the good news!

  3. I might miss a day here and there but mostly I am on here every day doing my notifications and making replies. I read and comment and I post. I have been surprised lately that on quite a few posts that I read I am the only one at the moments commenting. At least I leave my mark before I move on.

  4. I am on Virily every day and also make comments every day only now that the comments are limited to only those who comment on me ….. but for that I sometimes run out … in the comments I am so behind by a day or two
     

  5. I wonder when you will make this kind of polls 🙂
    I’m curious especially for the number of active users, as per my rough calculations it’s not more than 50 users who regularly active.

    As for the amount of view, I do think having the guest view will help the sites in general. The author won’t get direct payment as a viril, but the impact will be on the “value” of virils”. Because more people see a page on virily, it means more people see the ads on that page. More ads view more income from Google Adsense.

    PS: As for the questions in polls, I only able to vote for questions no 1, because as a non-verified members, we need for the admin to approved our post first.

  6. I think I am enough active here now after came back from a long time absence. I left when Virily stopped paying for external views, just checked site time from time. Still, I like Virily and its community. I believe we would get much more views if Virily agreed to pay at least fraction for external views, it would be a good motivation to share posts more often.
