The Coffee Talk… – the Purpose of My Writing or What Is Virily For…..

Now that all the Daily Limits are reduced, the Viril value is very low, and that there are no more points (Virils) for commenting on other people’s posts, I wrote in my previous article about, I’m really thinking about my activity here as I already announced I will reduce it…

I already said I will elaborate on these changes a little later when I gather all the information and till then I want to point out some things…

For me Virily was always about creativity and whatever I write is the part of that creativity, even when I’m writing about Virily where I’m only analyzing and informing about the things some of you might know nothing about, and even for the ones who already do I’m also asking questions and about different opinions on the theme… Sometimes I’m criticizing when there is a lot of frustration on the site due to the site problems we are all frustrated about and often I was trying to help because it’s easier that way than to explain some things to each member separately…

If you were reading my posts and understood them properly you would also know I’m often repeating some info because not all the people manage to catch everything and all the info I write about and then know nothing about certain things, info and/or problems, as there are less and less (active) Users on the site and especially now that there is the loading posts pages issue which some still don’t know how to overcome and some don’t even want to bother with it…

Maybe you are noticing posts are getting less and less views, and less and less comments, which I believe will now only become worse with all these reduced limits and disabled Virils for commenting, where only the posts in the Most Commented are getting enough attention now (that is my own experience, maybe yours is not like that… :/), which I’m not sure how will be developing now that probably many people will even stop commenting other people’s posts due to the commenting problem of not being rewarded for it…

There are still points (Virils) for the comments on our own posts though, but when everything is reduced and the value lowered who will bother to comment except the loyal ones or the ones who really like something or have something to say…

I’m also wondering how the Most Commented will look now and will it even exist if people reduce their commenting on other people’s posts!… ;D 😀

I was investing a lot of my efforts and time in this till now and now, as it will take a lot more time to earn the $10 minimum and I am certainly here for that as well, this is all quite demotivating and the only thing that is currently inspiring for me is the creativity but the question is: “is it worth it”…

    • Thank you very much, glad you have!!!… 🙂 I am working more relaxed and will probably work less until we get a CLEAR INFO about our earnings and payments…!!! There are no ads at all and I’m wondering if we are actually currently earning anything here which I certainly think we are ENTITLED to KNOW!

  2. I will stay here because not everything is measured by the value of money. I have great friends here, I have the opportunity to post my photos. From here I learn a lot of new things. Everyone has the right to choose. thanks

    1
    • Well it’s great if you can say that… I certainly don’t measure everything by money but I am here for my professional endeavor in the first place and was spending a lot of my time and energy here to earn something while neglecting so many other important things!… Also, no one can judge anyone if they don’t know anything about the person nor how that person lives…!

      I am not here to make friends as I’m making them in real life and this kind of “socializing” is actually pretty overwhelming for me as the type of people here is not the type of people I would normally socialize except some rare ones which showed as friends… I only got a lot of unnecessary stress here because of the usual type of people on these kinds of sites…!!!

      Also, I already said I enjoy the creativity part here but without money I really have much more important things to do………!

    • PS Since I am an artist this place is also not that good for my professional presentation, which was the MAIN reason I even came here plus to earn for that, as there is only a handful of active people here…

    • The point is I can’t waste my time this much anymore… I was already wasting it much already by being here all day and now when no one actually even TELLS US if we are actually even EARNING ANYTHING while sitting here all day trying to earn as much as possible, it just has no point anymore…..

  3. I have nothing to say. I am here for the friendship and its a great place to share my hikes. Its not about the money. Never was, never will be. I go months without even checking. Sorry to hear you wont be here as much.

    • Great, good for you you don’t have to worry about your money… I am here for my professional endeavor in the first place…, I make friends in real life as only rare ones showed as “real” friends here – on the contrary, I only got huge stress because of people on these kinds of sites where I started only and mostly for my artistic presentation (which turned out into something else unfortunately), and since I was spending almost all day here and investing so many efforts in this neglecting much more important things (I doubt you were spending that much time and efforts here) I certainly won’t be doing that without earning ANYTHING FOR THAT anymore…

      Having “fun” all day is a luxury for me………

        • Oh yes, by all means, if you were Virilying for money that was the wrong thought. Sites like this, the money is just an added bonus for doing what you love to do. Share stuff. It is so hard to sell crafts n such online. It’s hard to find a venue. Etsy is the closest I can find.

          1
          • I certainly wasn’t expecting to earn a fortune, but I was here for the earnings too, both for the creativity and earnings part… I will not tolerate such disrespect of not informing us about this and if I continue to post it will be because I decided so and do it for my own reasons…! We are Entitled to know and it’s their OBLIGATION to inform us if we are earning Anything or Nothing now…!!! I want to know if I’m wasting my time or not, as there is only like 5 active users now therefore I certainly can not be here only for my art promotion!…

            It’s not that hard, there are many possibilities, I already know about Etsy, but I first wanted to share my work…

            1
      • Hhahaha, yes, I agree on that… That was kinda my thought as well as I already saw some inactive users visiting but the problem is admins are not approving posts often, so many members are complaining they have to wait for days their posts to be approved – that is only turning members off and I can’t possibly understand what are those admins thinking when acting that way?!?!!!… How they think to improve the value of this site if they are not allowing new members, there are no posts, everything is reduced, it only makes things worse!…

        1
        • She is right but seems that isn’t happening… I did saw a couple of inactive people being active a little but I doubt anyone will be interested in being here when they see how the earnings are low, except some probably rare ones… Also, posts are approved only once or twice a week as I heard so many are unsatisfied with that and no one wants to sit waiting here earning nothing while waiting for their posts being approved, except again, probably some rare ones…

          • Do you hate Virily???? I still believe Virily will survive. I try to be in Virily every day although little time and I will try to publish something from time to time. It is not good to wait to have the post published, this is true

        • How did you conclude “I hate Virily” from what I said………??? :/ I said what I am Noticing and what other people are Telling me – their opinion about all this, it is not my Opinion but Facts…

          As you can probably already see, there is only like 5-10 active users, many already stopped commenting, and there are only a couple ones who are only occasionally active – being only occasionally active certainly can not help much… I did say there is a couple of (old) inactive users who I saw active but it is only Rarely and Sometimes…
          It is nice you are still active and I’m actually (still) even more active than you and some other people are…

          But my own opinion is also based on my experience here… I certainly liked Virily for some reasons otherwise I certainly wouldn’t still be here, but when things are bad they are affecting us (for a long time now) and our opinion changes of course, so yes, I believe and actually KNOW many are and were not satisfied due to the so many site issues and the treatment users are getting here so they left… That is why people are not that active here anymore…

          • And I think it’s like that because their posts are not approved regularly anymore, that is also what they Told me – they do not feel the need to be active if their posts are not approved regularly so it is not my opinion but plain facts… That was also certainly affecting their earnings so people simply give up, and especially now that the earnings are VERY low, people simply lose their motivation!…

          • I don’t believe Virily will get better just all by itself…, I think things became like this because people were losing their interested in it due to the treatment they were getting or better say not getting, that is what many were and still are telling me…

          • I would certainly like things to be better and that is why I’m complaining all the time, because things here often do not get better and it’s like that for a long time… No one listens nor answers what we are saying to them…

          • …but it would certainly be nice if we would see some change and progress here, then we could speak about people getting back here and the site being more active…

            I’ve actually just posted an article about it…

    • Thank you very much, I am Very glad you think so…!!! Yes, I agree it’s a creative outlet and I am glad it’s like that for you, but it was very time and effort consuming for me so with such low earnings I will unfortunately have to reduce my activity here…

      PS Did you read my previous posts, I shared a couple of other info about the changes there in case you still haven’t learned about them…?

      1
      • You need to post at least 600 words and wait until they approve it. It takes a long time for money to build up but I enjoy posting there anyway. It is a place I can post long creative posts. I suggest that things might be different for art so go on Vocal and find the place where everyone posts art and see what kind of things they are posting.

        1
        • Oh ok……… I already know they are asking 600 words but I didn’t know it takes long to earn there… I was hoping it’s better than here… I also know it’s 100 words for poems but recently they changed something so I thought they maybe reduced the number of words…

          How long it takes to earn there for you…?

          1
        • Oh, wow…, I didn’t know you haven’t been paid already… Since when you are posting there then…? :/ Can you approximately say the amount you can earn in a week or a month since you started posting more actively and how many posts is that daily or whenever you post…?

          1
          • Sorry, it builds up incredibly slow now I try to post at least something every week but no matter I can wait on that I just don’t think you would like to have to wait so often. It is all about how many people read your posts but there are so many different magazines

            1
        • I thought it was better as they have much more members and generally views and visits on the site, but sorry to hear it’s like that… I liked the looks of the site as well that the admins are very responsive and updating things constantly…!!! They look and act much more professional than the things are here…

          1
          • As I suggested take a look at the magazine where all artists post and see what they submit. Perhaps it is different when you post artwork than when you post articles which maybe not so many read.

            1
        • I already saw it some time ago, and as I said all the texts require 100 words except poems, I can’t write that many words for my artworks…
          I might take a look again but if it’s that slow it’s not worth it…

          1
    • Thanks, glad you think so….. I guess it’s because the theme is overwhelming as well… I’m trying my best to make it as simple as possible…
      I also wanted to say about the current situation…, that it will probably affect my activity here…

      1
        • I am both actually and it can be overwhelming for me too as I can’t always write only a few words and sometimes I’m trying to write an actual article… I am also trying to make my explanations clear…

          1
          • The length of the article is not a problem, but sometimes your sentences can be compound and long. Also, headlines in the article can help differentiate the different topics within the post. This is not criticism, just a tip how things get easier to read in general, and hopefully there will be less misunderstanding.

            1
        • I understand it’s not a criticism… Well, I can’t do much about the length of the sentences, that’s just the way I write, and some things is hard to explain in English so I’m doing the best I can… Also, when it comes to the titles…, I also have that certain manner of expressing myself, I am not “banal”, unfortunately not many understand that but I can’t help with that… Sometimes I make things literal sometimes not that much but I doubt the title makes things overwhelming…

          Or you actually meant subtitles……….?!? :/ Hmmmm… I know but I’m trying to bold things in a different way, I know it can be confusing, I’m doing my best in that as well, but not always everything is possible…

          Anyway, I probably won’t be even posting this much anymore as I’m actually wondering if we are currently earning ANYTHING actually……… I really can’t waste my time anymore this much… I AM kinda “addited” to this but I just see no point…

          1
          • Yes, like subtitles inside the text. I understand that everyone has a unique style of expression, but if we want our message to be understood correctly, we need to find some common ground with the reader.

            I agree the changes and lack of communication are frustrating.

            1
        • I know and am already aware of that, that is why I’m writing the way I write or it could be even more confusing if I weren’t… I don’t like subtitles so I’m bolding things differently… Everyone has their way of expressing themselves…

          Yes, and that is why I certainly won’t invest my energy here that much until I get informed about the way things will run here in the future…!

          1
        • Especially that the only reason that is currently keeping me here is my own creativity….. I already wanted to leave because I wasn’t satisfied at all – both with the site and users so… It’s actually stress-free for me now…!
