The Virily Changes

Hi all!!!!!

You all know Virily has made several (or lots of) changes so I was wondering what you think about them…

My personal opinion is that some things were better on the old look of the site and I also welcome some new things that came with the changes… I personally think that the old look of the main page where all the posts were together was better than the new one because now I find it hard to find what I am interested in and maybe some specific posts, and it is also hard to find my own post when I publish it, even if it is new… Therefore I see it is hard for other people too, since I get fewer notifications about my new posts than I was before the change was made… I also don’t like the new look of the posts in our own “Posts” page because the pictures are huge and I don’t find it very attractive nor needed… I do like that the readers are also given the opportunity to earn more points when reading other people’s posts but I also think the authors should get more credit for the upvotes they get on the photos inside their posts and also for reactions… Some people put 20 photos in their posts and it seems that they earn the least in those cases… πŸ™ I also like the new badges and options for posting…

So let’s begin… πŸ™‚ And if you think there is something I forgot to mention in my questions you are welcome to write it in the comments!!! πŸ™‚

Thank you for visiting and enjoy!!!!! πŸ™‚

PS The photo I used is the photo I made in one of my favorite coffee shops and I will post more photos from there later too…! πŸ™‚ The coffee is made in the Greek way (cooked on hot sand) and the coffee that is used for it is so-called “Turkish” coffee… I hope you like it… πŸ™‚

      • Actually, now that I can compare the old and new, I did hope they sort of merge it. In the new format you can read the whole article without clicking it unless you want to put in a comment. In the old format which is the current, one can upvote/downvote without reading. So I think what is better is that if Virily could use the new format with the upvote/downvote option and that should be counted as view.

        • Now you can’t read it without opening it, you can only upvote/downvote that way….. But I think the old and the new should be merged regarding the look of the main page since the long scrolling is really exhausting…..

  1. The new look pretty much showed huge photos, and majority of the post. You really didn’t have to click the link to view the article because it showed the entire thing, instead of the upvote, which you had to click the actual link to see that.

  2. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA, they changed the look of the Profile>Posts page!!! πŸ˜€ Now it’s great…! πŸ˜€ So it seems that the changes are still in the process and some things are just temporary (at least I think so)…! πŸ˜‰

      • Has anyone problem with virily points? The difference in “Total” for one day gets up for me more or less 600, but points for “today” changing few times a day either down or up but rarely reach 100. WTF this means? When I noticed how little my virily points are for “today” I started writing down numbers in the evening and there is a big discrepancy in my account. Has anyone noticed something similar? Maybe that’s why earnings are so low now?

        • Yes I also noticed that and asked via chat what is that (I also don’t understand what the “best” number is for) but not answered… I just think it is not yet fixed…..

          I also noticed (like I wrote in one of the comments here) that my current balance for this month is not accurate (around 2300 points is missing) but the dashboard is late these days so I suppose (AND HOPE) not all the points were calculated yet…! :/ And also I noticed a very low value of one Viril (for my 5000 it says it is worth $1.85 which has never been that way and that low so I also hope it is just a temporary mistake…)…

          • The “Best” I think is the best your result of a day through all your Virily history, in other words, the biggest amount of Virils you have reached per day.

          • Yes it has and it is great now, like I said in my comment, so I didn’t understand the negative “tone” of your comment….. Actually, I thought your comment was negative because you said “This is the comment I will write!” so I don’t understand the meaning of that statement —– actually I understood it as an absence of the comment, therefore, a negative comment….. I don’t see where is the meaning you wrote now in that comment, it wasn’t mentioned anywhere…..! And when you mentioned ignorance I thought you had an ignorance for Fortune….. I also don’t understand that number and we were talking about that but I think that number is just not working well…..

        • Haha… Thank you for understanding me. I never comment in a negative tone on any post from anyone, right? In this post too. Previously I would write “Our page post is back as before…” it turns out you’ve written it. Unfortunately, indeed our reply is not directly under the comments that we will respond to, so often we find it difficult to know which response is actually being addressed, especially if there are comments from other friends, such as Fortune’s response in this regard.

          • Welcome! πŸ˜‰ Sorry for the misunderstanding… I must say sometimes it is hard to interpret your comments, maybe if English is not your native…..
            I agree that is something that can lead to the misinterpretation….. 😐
            Good that we eventually understood ourselves well…

        • This is your response to me above, “Sorry for the misunderstanding… I must say sometimes it is hard to interpret your comments, maybe if English is not your native…” I agree and add another possibility with, “Could be, or how do I express a purpose (idea/message) that is rather strange?”. That’s what I mean.

  3. I think the first points are for me:
    The new interface is harder to find who has commented and replying to cmments.
    The overall impact of the new format is as you’ve said so much harder to scroll.
    The look at feel of the main site is nice, I will get used to that.

    Overall it is what it is.

    • Why is it hard for you to find who has commented and replied, the notifications are the same as they were…?
      What do you mean by the “the look at feel of the main site”? For me the site looks nice and the new Profile page looks better than before, except the look of the Posts page…!

  4. I’m not much bothered by the main page changes, but I truly dislike the way our posts now display on our profile pages. The photos are way too large and too much of the post is showing. It’s difficult to scroll past and find another post.

    I’d also like to see the earnings history restored, as it seems it’s been broken since the changes.

    • Hi, thank you for your comment! I’m not sure what I should answer here because there are several perspectives on this problem… I do understand that the admin thought it is better to or had to make these changes for some other reason, but also the opinion of the users is important… Also, we must have in our mind that there are “outside” readers and I’m not sure that this look is the best… :/ I do understand if the changes had to be made for some reason and maybe the changes are still “in the process”, but this is just the way to express what we think is good and what we think is not good… At the end…, we are the ones who use this site and many of us are now having the similar problem – having less points and some of us are now because of that writing and publishing less… I think that is not either good for the site nor for the admins – it brings them earnings too…..
      I do believe that the admins are trying and giving their best but maybe we should also draw their attention to some things that we don’t find much useful and that there are maybe some better solutions….. πŸ™‚ I also think that they are probably aware of that and just doing things one step at the time but some things already last long, things that are not that good, and maybe we should turn their attention to that…

  5. Part of the problem with posts that contain a lot of photos is that people burn out on them. I’d bet that, if you examined them, you would find that the number of upvotes decreases as the number of the photo gets higher. People lose interest even if the photos are excellent.

  6. Virily is in its beginning stages and changes are to be expected. Whatever changes they make we all just want them to lead to success. So many blogging sites don’t survive. We want Virily to live! LOL. Seriously. We want this site to stay online for forever! I have no complaints about their changes because they still respond to direct messaging and I know they’re constantly working on making things better!

  7. This is a good opportunity for administrators to evaluate the changes. The posts page is probably undermining their goals. It should be set up more as a teaser for the posts. I’m quite new and not yet really familiar with the site. Is there an onsite forum where members discuss pros, cons, issues, and/or ideas?

    • Thank you very much for commenting…! I agree with you! The previous outlook of the main page was just like that!… Much smaller photos (previews) and the posts were in a grid, but I kinda get why they put it this way… Now you can upvote posts before opening them so that is kinda great too, but maybe the best solution would be a little smaller preview and still able to upvote or downvote, so not that small like on the old look of the page… But maybe, I guess it now, they are working on it and just not being able to do it all right away…
      That was my thought too, there should be a forum or a group chat where people could express their opinions and ideas…

      • I already said earlier that I do not like changes , I hardly get used to it and actually write now less. I also noticed that my virily points are down now compare with old look. And I do not like that we can read posts without opening them, and neither reader nor writer get paid if post is not opened. Some kind of nonsense.

        • Thanks Fortune for commenting, I agree with you, that is kind of my opinion too… Seems that we all have the same problem – getting less points than while the old outlook… :/ I also don’t see the point of posts being presented in total on our Profile>Posts pages and the reader must open it to get the points anyway, so I can only suppose that it is made that way so the reader could choose “better” what he/she will read (and open)… But it is kind of nonsense to me too… I just hope that it is just the temporary state and the changes are “in the process”…..

        • Reallyyyyyyy?????!!!!!! I didn’t notice that on my dashboard but could be….. :/ πŸ™ There is obviously a problem and I hope and think they are working on it… I saw that one member was paid so I guess and hope that they are working on it and is just hard to answer and explain the same thing to all the members that are complaining… Although, I do mind when not answered…..:/ :|||

          • Exactly. And it’s too difficult to scroll all posts down. Those big pictures really hurt my eyes, while scrolling. Looks like it will never end. The same is with my friend’s posts. I wanted to see what I’ve missed due to holidays and it was useless. Too much time to waste. That’s why our virils amount went down, regardless to doubled efforts.

        • Good to know…! I feel bad for writing my complaints to the admins… :/ I have also just noticed that around 2300 of my points is not (yet) calculated into this months balance and that my 5000 points earned in this month are worth only $1.85! πŸ™ – if the numbers are correct….. :/ πŸ™ That is awful, the worth of 1 Viril was never that low (again, if the numbers are correct…)…! πŸ™

        • Yes… I hope too…! I noticed they fixed the look of our posts on our Profile page now (take a look :)) but the photos inside the old posts are still missing….. It looks to me that the changes are in the process and not yet finished and probably that is why these problems are happening… (at least I hope that is the reason…:/) πŸ™‚

          • Nice! I’ve just seen that full amount of estimated account is visible now. And also that my virils amount, from the New Year till now is really low. I blame the new image for that downfall and I am glad it is improving. Suppose those few weeks was just a trial period and now everything will be adjusted. πŸ™‚

    • Yes….. Sad… πŸ™ Thank you for reading!!!!! I hope there will be more development of these changes and that it is just in the process… πŸ™ Maybe there is a reason they made it that way but I just hope there will be a better solution :/
