The Virily Changes include the top community ask from this summer (edit my posts)

Good morning all, and welcome to the new Virily. Last summer, as a community we put together a new FAQ, and some functionality asks for the admin team. I captured all of those thoughts and sent them along to the admin team. The top two community requests from the author team when we did that was the ability to edit old posts and the ability to edit comments. The good news is we can now edit posts! The other top requests are out there still so maybe over time we will see the ability to block users, permanently remove comments, and the ability to edit comments. The good news is the admin team listened to some of our suggestions (at least we can hope they did since they implemented them!)

The poll issue (start a poll, add a picture, refresh, then do the rest of your work) appears to have been resolved. As the timeout issue also appears to have been fixed (start a post, then get distracted, and when you get back to the post you’ve been logged out (which you don’t find out until you try to do something on the new post or refreshed). In both cases please note, I had only tried this once. Let’s see where we are in a couple of days to determine if the site is now working.

The look and feel of the site are a little different that is interesting. At this point, the look and feel are more like the Facebook, Twitter, MeWe style of presenting the information. The functionality has changed just the visual way the data is presented (in the IT world we call that a view). The other thing that we asked for ages ago now was a cleaner notifications page. That was done; you no longer see a notification for graphic submission, comments you’ve made, and opening another user’s post.  The notifications are more applicable now, in the sense that they only represent the notifications that are good to know (upvotes) and ones that require action by you (another author comments on your post).

The posted total in the profiles page (of your posts) is wrong. There are missing posts though. I suspect this will change.

I will always ask some poll questions and will share those with the admin team. Overall I am still wondering the site and using it, and I will update the team if I find anything.

I want to thank everyone that participated during the summer in the polls that we sent to the Admins. I don’t know if those emails were something that the admin team responded to, but at least one of our big asks was completed!

I hope everyone has a great Friday!
