Thank you to everyone that voted and commented. Overall, as I suspected, communication is one of the two hot buttons for the community. I will create a how to make the site better post this weekend so that authors can express their other desired changes again. Overall my only concern is the two no votes for most of the communication tasks. Not sure why anyone would vote no to more site communication to everyone. Overall for the first run, the number one top-rated ask is to update the FAQ for the site overall. The poll questions are in the order they were voted. Please select one of these as your top ask. Vote for as many as you would like and then pick one for your head ask!

I promise, based on the comments yesterday, that I will do a post on the other technical asks for the site this weekend.

I wanted to clarify an provide more information bout the top 3 choices.

  1. FAQ update, this is important as it is the initial place users can go when they are having issues. The FAQs haven’t been updated in a while.
  2. I am putting a banner on the page before significant changes are something that was done a couple of years ago. It notifies you of impending changes to the site.
  3. The final one would be a one-two paragraph post on the front page of Virily.com that would notify us (authors) of issues and problems.

We are a community; we can work together to make our community stronger. Communication is a high starting point for us to continue to build our community.

I will send this post and the poll results to the Admin at 12 noon EDT Thursday.

  1. Thanks for all of your hard work. Perhaps people got confused with the questions or simply didn’t understand. I don’t know what the answers are, and still I hope things improve. We each are either part of the solution or part of the problem.

  3. FAQ is one of the things people go to to understand a site or run into problems. Don’t leave people guessing what gives Virils and what not.

    Newsletter is not that necessary IMO, but banner and post would be really great!
