The concept of Virily Author responsiblity!

I had a wonderful conversation in comments yesterday that I wanted to share part of it. The person said that she truly enjoyed Virily and the community. I pointed out to her that as authors our use of Virily does convey a level of responsibility. The first responsibility is to be fair and honest. I am fair means that you try to present information that is correct, but also that you don’t say things that are demeaning to other authors.

Let’s start there, and it is important that articles we publish don’ force users or the moderators to step in.

  1. Curse words in any language are not allowed.
  2. If you present information that isn’t factual – hopefully, other authors call you out.
  3. This isn’t a verified user versus another user issue.

I have and continue to nominate people that live up to the Virily rules for Verified user status (per the FAQs). We have added several new verified users, and normally this seems to happen once a year. There are several things that the admins appear to look for in moving users from standard to verified status.

  • No reported posts or comments
  • No direct public attacks of Virily
  • No direct posts that attack other authors
  • It appears a minimum of 15 months (give or take a bit) contributing to the site.

I will be honest, and this is in part from the FAQ and in part from knowing who has been made verified in the past two months.

I know views are creeping back up, and I wanted to end today with a thank you to everyone who reads and comments!

 I’ve noted in the past two days that views are ticking up slightly. I suspect given the current frustration (old posts modified – pictures and posts separated. Unable to use quizzes easily being the two big ones), that people are still a little frustrated.

So again, to those who read and post, you rock. To those who comment you rock! To those who make comments about other authors or groups of authors, please consider the Reddit rule. Remember there is a human being on the other side of the keyboard.
