The Current Changes on Virily – an Info from the Admin and the New Look of Posts on Profile Posts Pages (and think more to come…)!!! πŸ˜€ ;)

There was a maintenance that lasted quite long today (Friday) and I contacted one of the admins via Facebook just to know how long it will last, to know whether to wait or not… She answered me and asked if I liked the site… I was wondering why she asked me that, said “Yes” but also noted some of the things we all the members here mind the site, like less communication with the admins for example… She said she is aware of that and that they have big plans for the site, that everything is in the process and working on the communication too… I was glad to hear that but I didn’t know that some new things were already applied…! πŸ˜€

If you take a look at your Posts page on your Profile pages you will see the new look of your posts, they are organized in larger thumbnails (something I suggested long ago in my Polls about Virily – when it comes to posts on the main Virily page although now applied to our personal Posts page but who knows, maybe it will be changed on other pages too!… :D), they all have pictures visible, AND they are also marked what they are – Polls, Quizzes and other posts so they are very easy to distinct what they are…

Also!…, if you take another look at your posts on that page you will see the three dots in the right bottom corner of each post and when you hover over it with your mouse the small menu appears giving options for saving the article in three different ways…! Try to click on some of them and you will see some very interesting new features like Collections for saved articlesΒ ANDΒ the new pop-up notification in the top right corner for where (in which Collection) the saved article wentΒ …..! Although I must say finding that (Collections) page without previously saving an article is a little confusing since I couldn’t manage to find it from the Home page except this way even though it says Home>Collections>name of the collection at the top of the page but I guess that will be solved later… I was wondering where and why did the “Save button” for saving posts under each post disappear and even left a message/comment about it recently to the admin in one of his recent posts and here it is…, brand new Save button…! πŸ™‚

As I’m writing this post I am also noticing the changes made here…: the letters are a little larger and the font is a little different… They are also the same on the Notifications page and some other places (and could be changed elsewhere too… ;))..

Also, I saw Carol has just posted an article saying she is not able to reply to comments but what I saw in her article is that it is also not possible to comment at all too so I guess the changes and fixes are in the process just now…!

Who knows what else will be changed too but at least now we know what’s happening and not to panic when we notice malfunctions like this…! There are obviously changes in the process constantly and it would be great to be informed about them from the admins although after having this conversation with the admin some things are more clear to me now…

I would also like to see some features here like Discussions about the site and not having to write such things in my (blog) posts so the site would be more professional that way I think…

Update!:Β I’ve just noticed other changes… If you want to edit your posts that you’ve already submitted put your cursor (mouse) on those three dots I mentioned above and the Edit button is there…! πŸ˜€ Also, answers in some Polls (I think they are VS’s) are registered much faster and in a little different (more practical) way I think… The site seems much faster!

  • Do you like the new look?

    • Yes
    • No
    • So-so
  • Are you now aware that the admins are actually working on things constantly and that that should be considered as a default whenever the problems occur now…?

    • Yes
    • No
    • I would like to be informed anyway
  • Would you like to see options for publishing Discussions about the site and other things separate from blog posts? Do you find it more convenient in order this site to be more professional…?

    • Yes
    • No
    • Maybe

What do you think?

    • This article was written at the time the changes have been just implemented, when almost no one have known anything about it yet… It is ok, I am just annoyed when people are constantly asking questions about the things I already wrote and informed everyone about like a month ago, even the ones that commented on those same articles…!!! 😐 (this is not meant to you but generally) It is also even mentioned in one article I posted after this one..
      Actually now, looking at the comments in the post where I gave you the link to this post, I’m not sure if the problem was in finding the Edit Button or there is another problem with editing and publishing posts…

      Of course…, you are very welcome, hehehe… πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚

      • Yes, I saw above that this article was published 29 days ago.

        We must remember that not everyone reads our posts, and not all who have read our posts have read it carefully, and the consequence is that not many people remember them so that when something happens your post does not become a reference. After all, posting a problem is increasing the number of posts someone has, right?
        As well as many people, including me, have posted the same theme, like payment from Virily.

        Well, this is just my point of view which could be wrong.

        • OK, great…

          Yes, I am aware of that… But I just guess if it is something that important, something we all use every day, then the chance of not remembering it is quite odd… In that situation the only answer is that it is not read carefully..
          Not sure what you mean by “posting a problem is increasing the number of posts someone has”…? :/
          This is not the theme anyone posted before…

        • Of course, but the number of views is not the only important thing here, especially that I’m writing about Virily things that are the concern of all of us and should be read carefully… I’m not investing all of this energy and hard work in writing this for it to be taken for granted or not understood…..

          • Oh dear… O’ dear… Is my strange language too difficult to understand? If that happens, forgive me.

            Imagine or assume I am someone who only intends to get Virils here, I – not someone else, I then experience a problem, error, or whatever, even though I already know the answer because I have read your post before, but because I want to post something then I could post a problem that happened to me, right? doesn’t my post will get views and comments? Will my number of posts increase? Will my Virils increase? Of course.

            That’s what I mean by “again”. It’s not about you but someone else. Well, that is the worst case scenario and it might be irrelevant, even prejudice but assuming that other people read carefully and study my writing well is naive to me.

            If I make a scale of 0 – 9 for all of my thoughts that I consider very important and ask friends honestly here to say how important all those for them, I believe the average will not be more than 5. So, I will never hope that people, in general, will read my writing carefully, maybe there are, but very little.

            Hopefully, this reply is understandable, but sorry if my reply often makes you confused.

        • Hehehe, yes Albert, your writing (expressing things) is often very weird to me… πŸ™‚

          OK, I now understand what you meant and I have to say it came to my mind a couple of times when seeing some people’s posts, just like you explained with the Virily payments proofs too, especially that replies to the comments on those problems posts were something like “thank you for commenting” so it was pretty suspicious to me…

          When it comes to writing, I can understand you are thinking that way about your own writing, and I can think the similar way of my own, but not when it comes to Virily themes where I give some very important info which concern all of us…..

          Also, since many were complaining people not reading their posts but only commenting the photos like “very nice photos” and similar and not giving genuine comments, I wanted to pay attention more to what people write (as much as I’m able to) so it’s very weird to me those same people not paying attention (to my or other people’s articles) the same way they asked… πŸ˜‰

          • First, underlining your first sentence, allow me to say that you are the only person who often questions the meaning of my comment or reply. To be honest, I often feel confused to explain so that you understand my point well. However, it’s better than people who don’t understand my point but just ignore it.

            Concern all of us? That’s what you think, but not everyone thinks like you, Ta. Not everyone understands what you care about. Not everyone is proficient in English here (including me). Not everyone understands the context and ideas we write. Not everyone is able to comment contextually with the substance of the writing. Also, especially, not everyone reads our writing, and so on.

            Do you think everyone cares about notifications? Do you think everyone remembers what comments they wrote or ever asked? Do you think everyone is serious here? Is everyone willing to spend time just to keep replying to the previous reply? I don’t think so. Again, there are many motives and reasons for how people comment here. I also often try to improve it, the things you want here, in various ways. Maybe you ever read some of my posts on that intention too.

            I know you are a caring person, but I don’t want you or people to be frustrated because they hope other people appreciate your concern.

        • I don’t understand why you always get “mad” about some things and often understanding Me wrong… We are both non-native English speakers and from very different countries… To me, simply, your way of expressing things is sometimes hard to understand… The thing I am “the only one in that” doesn’t mean anything in this situation… I don’t know what is that “bad” or “wrong” in simply having a different way of expressing things… I often don’t understand some things even in your articles… Maybe other people just don’t say it like me, but I’m certainly not insulting you not criticizing you not anything similar in order to get such an answer… I am simply saying it’s hard for me to understand you sometimes!

          I am talking about VIRILY —– my VIRILY THEMED POSTS…..! Those are the themes that all of us are concerned here since I’m writing on the current problems………!!!!!

          Who said anything about the comments………??? Yes, but I’m still talking about VIRILY THEMES AND ISSUES AND GIVEN ANSWERS TO THOSE INDIVIDUAL PROBLEMS…….. I know which kinds of communications I’m talking about…!
          I know not everyone care about that or don’t manage everything but I’m talking something else here!…….. And yes, there are some people that DO care…….. You can always tell and separate those things by the way people generally behave……

          Read your posts in what intention……??

          I can’t discuss this with you since it seems you’re always missing the point of my writing and interpreting something completely else………!!! I didn’t even expect this kind of answer nor this long due to what I wrote in the previous comment…

        • PS I am writing about the things that almost EVERYONE cares about when it comes to VIRILY THEMES, THAT IS WHY I’M WRITING THAT………!!! When everyone is complaining about the same thing it’s logical those people are interested in the solution for that thing….. I am not an idiot to not understanding such things and what is interesting to someone and what not…
          People who don’t pay attention could also simply not reading or understanding the whole article or similar, and not what you said…

          • Again, I am shocked… I am not mad at all, as you think I am. I am sure that I have never been angry, resentful, or otherwise to you but instead, I often feel that you are upset with me.

            The reply above doesn’t talk about you at all, but again you consider that I am talking about you. In the end, I clearly give a statement that essentially supports you like so far, but you seem to misunderstand again.

            Well, I think I can understand that we are indeed difficult to understand each other so you say that you cannot discuss it with me.

            Btw, 4 – 1 in numerology it is difficult to understand each other, so maybe you need to know that my life path number is 1.

        • OK. Didn’t mean actually “mad”, but your answer seemed a little too long on the fact I’m having troubles interpreting your words sometimes… You seemed “caught” on that fact…

          Yes, I understood the fact at the end and understood the support. I now actually don’t understand anything, nor know what you understood from my writing… I understood you were “advising” me by explaining those things about Other people, but I don’t agree with your explanation because I think you didn’t understand what Exactly I meant in my previous and possibly in this answer too (since you think I thought you were talking about me…!)…!

          I just can’t explain myself constantly to the details anymore…….

          I would never say you are a 1, you seem too soft for a 1…

    • Hehehehehe πŸ™‚ Yes, lately my posts are quite long so I can understand… But I hope you will be able to manage to read the other things sometime too… ;/) Well, that was the main idea of this and my other Virily posts as well so I’m glad you’re excited about it…! πŸ™‚ Welcome, and thanks much for the appreciation, I’m very glad it means to you…!!! πŸ™‚

  1. You are on a roll with another great post. At the risk of repeating myself, I will have to congratulate you on your earnings because of all the hard work you have done in order to help us all understand the changes which VRILY itself should have done themselves right from the start.

    • Thanks much, glad you think so…!!! πŸ™‚ Thanks but I don’t have additional earnings for writing this…, only the usual ones as all the other members, hehehe… πŸ™‚ I am glad what I wrote is helpful and useful for you…! πŸ™‚ Yes, I know, I agree, they should be the ones writing about these things and informing us although it is interesting and exciting writing, sharing and informing about these….. (I too already answered about this in the previous post you commented so not to repeat myself too, hehehehehe :))

      Thanks much for reading and commenting!!!

    • You are actually saying something here that we are ALL experiencing during weekends…… I don’t know how can you ask that since it is a normal thing happening TO ALL OF US…..?!?

      And like I ALREADY said 2 TIMES, it was A HOLIDAY…..!

        • Which Fri-Mon are you asking…? It’s Saturday so it can’t be this one, but only the previous one when it was the holiday…

          If you are asking generally then yes, that is correct, but sometimes some articles do get approved during the weekend, probably depends on their place in the line of waiting I guess… I can’t answer if some people have different experiences, I am talking based only on mine…

          • I have noticed that usually I am NOT published from Fri to Mon, although rarely I have been published …. So I am trying to comprehend the workings of this site; I also heard the mention of ‘certified users’… how does one become a certified user…

        • Like I said, you are not the only one NOT being published on those times, it is a usual and normal thing here, you should already have learned that so far from other people’s posts and comments…

          I don’t know, I’m not one too…

        • Maybe after a certain number of posts, or just based on the quality of posts, or the themes or validity of the information (that is referred when it comes to my posts I publish about Virily), I don’t know, I was wondering that myself… :/

    • Yes, I agree with you… There was and usually is a problem with just having the info or the answer about some of them since it’s hard to get answers sometimes so it leaves the members quite frustrated sometimes, not knowing what is actually going on, and sometimes it’s for a long time so you never know… But it is a relief when getting such an answer just to know what’s (generally) going on… πŸ™‚

    • I am glad you found some new info for you…! I just thought it would be important to publish this since the admin answered so now we know why some things are happening… She said they are working on that too so I hope there will be that option soon too… I know, everyone minds that…

  2. Thanks for the update. It’s good to know the team is constantly improving the site and we are having a really nice community here. I like how the posts are laid out now, as it makes me easier to find the posts that interest me. I also like the three options for a post, especially read later. I am not very active at Virily at the moment, hopefully I will find more time here.

    • You are welcome… Yes, it certainly is good to know since it’s very hard to get some answers from them lately… :/ I am glad you like the changes and the site, I like them too, especially the improvement when it comes to the speed of the site and hopefully more good changes/improvements to come.. πŸ˜‰ Yes, it’s easier now to find the posts… You shouldn’t be overwhelmed by that, just be active as much as you want/can… πŸ™‚

    • Thanks!!! πŸ™‚ Yes, I think it was very good to hear from an admin in a more relaxed and optional way… Yes, I hope people are satisfied to hear this although not that many comments… (maybe because of the recent conflicts… :/) I hope that too, and so far it looks great! πŸ™‚

  3. Well, even before, I already mentioned how I like the concept of this site. It was just the slow loading and frequent errors that made me stay away from the site. But the types of contents allowed and the community is great prior to the updating. After the update, the improvement is noticeable. I hope the site would continuously grow and be more successful.

    • Well, I’m glad you like the site… I like it’s concept very much too, at least better than some other sites… πŸ˜‰ Yes, the site was very slow at the times but now I think it was due to this process of implementation… I guess it turned off many of them but hopefully they will come back to post when they hear about or notice the changes… I thin k the changes and improvements are awesome…! ;D
      Thanks for commenting…!!! πŸ™‚

  4. Thanks a lot for the info! πŸ™‚
    Yes, I noticed votes and poll votes were faster, such a relief!
    I guess some of these new features for saving content are either public or private, Collections being public, I suppose. Never tried, I don’t know. πŸ˜…
    What matters the most is that the admins are continuously monitoring the site.

    • You are welcome…..! πŸ™‚
      Yes!…, I agree it is much of a relief as well as some other things too… πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚
      Yes, seems so, so probably only the public ones can be accessed by other members… Good notice… Do not worry, your guess is a good notice…! πŸ˜‰
      Yes, seems they are constantly working on things, they seem easily and very quickly solved which makes me very happy and relieved… πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚
      I will publish another one with a small update… πŸ˜‰
      Thanks for commenting…!!! πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚
