OK the compiled let's fix the site list and long poll!!!!!!!

Ok, here we go. This one is easy; there are a lot of poll questions! But, because I am tired of the people that read, vote, and don’t bother to comment, I took away the No option on all questions. Based on feedback in the comments of the previous post (below), I’ve added two reporting comment options. I promise this is a straightforward poll; vote the ones that you feel are important. If it is all but one of the comments options, go ahead and vote for as many as you want. IF you don’t think something is noteworthy, go ahead and skip the poll question. As is always the case, I will send this to the admin team around noon on Monday, or whenever my calls let up, and I can take lunch!

I did want to layout the comment issue. In the past, when you reported a comment, the comments would be taken off the post. The thing is those comments were sometimes moderated back, but then you could request they be taken off, and they would be, but that process took 5-10 days. Now the report button appears to be a button to nowhere, and if you want or need so meets removed, you have to wait 5-10 days. The admin team is removing posts that have questionable or unkind content. I know of at least three posts that were removed for that fact. But to be clear, there are two comment options for reporting comments in the poll pick the one you think fits best, and if you have a 3rd option, please let me know in the comments!

No one should ever send you a PM telling you that you need to comment on their posts.

If you have additional thoughts on changes or better ways the changes detailed here could be done, please add them in the comments. I do send the admins a link to the post and also a copy of the poll results. But they have the link so if they choose they can go and read the comments. I think everyone in the community agrees that the number one thing is to get posts moderated faster.

There was an excellent question asked by Norman about new users. His point was that without new content creators, the site would continue to decline. I am not asking that one as a poll question – please weigh in by commenting on the thought…

Do you think new content creators would help us significantly?

 thank you to everyone that comments on this, the last post or any of my posts. Your words, thoughts, and comments are very important to me!

    • facts are a slippery slope. If something is perceived as a fact, it isn’t always a fact.

      What I base my decisions on is empirical, tested, and verified data. A fact for one person is simply the belief of another person, and sadly can also be a fairy tale for a third.

      • When a person can give facts; that is as I did in a previous post … I am more likely to believe then those who talk in hyperbole.

        Tell me a site is great or always pays is translated by me; :This site is a rip

        Tell me that you have been writing for two years and have been paid every other month suggests the site might be legit.

        If you said to me … Why do you shop at GF instead of HL I could give a number of sentences which contain facts.

          • I am not being angry, I agree with the point you made; that is the 100% supporters and 100% detractors are ignored, and those who give facts without attitude are far more believable.

          • The only way you can judge anything is to get rid of the mindless sheep… those who support 100% those who attack 100% and focus on those who have no bias.

        • sadly we all have bias. But I do understand your point. I post these posts specifically because there are two sides.

          we have authors on this site that don’t treat other authors well. They need to be removed.

          We have authors that carry on great conversations (like this one) that need to be encouraged!

          There are authors who try really hard to help the rest of us! they also deserve encouragement.

          But the fact is, the site has lower views.
          The site has fewer new posts.

          We have to get the community moving again.

          • I agree with what you’ve posted. There are (or is) a horrible racist poster on this site who will chase anyone. That this person can post suggests to me, if not others, that the owners may be of a similar persuasion.

            I would think a lot of people left this site due to the ‘tricks’ of the owner. I have logged on, checked my dashboard at X hour and seen I have $8,26 then in a few hours I have $4.34..

            Not everyone is accustomed or willing to become accustomed to this kind of scam

        • they have redone the rate of viril payout three times in the last two years. I’ve seen my 8 dollars go to 4 dollars all three times.

          It is harder to earn now I agree.

          What racist poster is on this site?

          • One of the things a long dead site, Factoidz, did (during it’s good time) was put the best stuff on the front page. This brought in users who would read and then try to write at the highest standard.

            New stuff was at the bottom, IF it was good, but what anyone who knows anything about views would realised, putting the latest crap on the front page, and burying the good stuff is burying the site.

  2. Best of luck. I hope you succeed. It is very important that new posts are approved as soon as possible. I miss drafts the most. I haven’t had any problems with comments, messages or anything else so far.

  3. I’ve gotten used to the ‘WTF’ option because Virily from my standpoint doesn’t get a lot of traffic. Hell, Yelp has a ‘Lol’ selection that used to drive me friggin crazy when none of my reviews had nothing humorous about them. Back in the day I gave no fucks about the selections and what people thought about my reviews, but once I started putting thought into my reviews it bothered me because Yelp is used by many. I’m ok with voting the ‘WTF’ out, but I could honestly careless if its there or not. With the flaws we already have, which are embarrassing as a writer, I have grown to not care anymore.

  4. I honestly believe that new content creators would benefit the site. I’m thinking on the lines of different topics out there for exposure to the site, as well as energy. I try not to be so one sided with what I share, so I put out different things that I’am very passionate about and experience as a person. Back when Virily had the referral system, I always tried to recruit users that brought topics this site could use.
