This outage on Virily is truly hurting all of us!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The first thing for today is to note that many people are very frustrated. I truly understand your frustration. I have sent the links to the posts and notified the Admin team of Virily that we are at serious risk of losing authors. Losing authors has a direct impact on the rest of the authors, but it has a bigger impact on the site. Virily is an ad drive site. They make money from Google Adsense. Based on that, anything that reduces the number of views or views impacts their ability to ear anything. I have not heard back from the admin team, but I will keep trying. As I have the last few days I open the comments to anyone that has concerns, frustrations, or for that matter, suggestions on possible ways around the issue.

One thing (and I do not know that this will work) I heard from another user is that they cleared the cache of their browsers when they didn’t see a create button, and now they see it again. I don’t know that this applies, as I don’t think this is a browser issue.

Secondly a bigger concern, this is not an issue of specific groups of people posting and others excluded. I wanted to clarify that, in fact, today, I noted who has bullied. Many of those are people that have been here on Virily since the end of Niume and have been posting that entire time. The other groups I’ve noticed started posting recently within the last 120 to 150 days. That does lead to some interesting speculation. But the reality is, I suspect there is no conspiracy here, just that if you all recall, the site changed their login methods 180 days ago. They also changed the login process two and a ½ or so years ago. My gut is the majority of the posters that cannot post now fit in that window. But, that is WHOLLY speculation, and I do not know that for a fact.

The other thing to remember is that Virily is the same for all of us. The unique thing about each of us on the Site is our user name (and our passwords). Based on that there are limited things that are causing this problem.

There is not a divide nor is there the haves and have nots. There are people who are just starting and exploring Virily and ones who are and have been here for a long time.

You have my commitment that I am reaching out to the support team every single day. This problem doesn’t just impact those that cannot post. It impacts all of us directly.

If Virily doesn’t have the views of the ads, they lose money. If Virily loses money, then all of us lose money.

I am sorry for everyone that hasn’t been able to post for now five days. It also costs me as a reader. There are many authors that cannot post right now whose posts I truly enjoy reading. We are a community! We will overcome this!

  1. At the moment, I do not know what else to comment on these issues. I really hope that they get it settled as soon as possible, though I think they are resolving it for too long (and to their own detriment). I’m currently using Chrome and Firefox. I think it’s difficult to explain how we feel “hurt” members.

  2. Showing up late again. Great poll and great thoughts on what the problem could be, from you and the comments. So this morning I noticed that someone had posted that they now had the create button. Have you heard if it is fixed for all?

  3. Apparently this problem has not been resolved, which unfortunately does not occur entirely but only for some people, so I think it’s only natural that there are various perceptions regarding this. but I support your view that there is no conspiracy here. I myself have no problem with that button even though I rarely visit Virili.

    I just read Carol’s post about an alternative way to post here, hopefully it’s useful.

  5. I have the site on book mark and I use chrome, I have also been here since Niume closed, however, not consistent. But I am truing my best to get back. I have not had a problem with the create button, it may be because I have the log in page bookmarked, May not have anything to do with it.

  6. I don’t think there is a group of people who are being blocked from posting anything on the site. I believe it’s the directory issue.
    I suspect the reason why Virily hasn’t solved it is because it takes Virily so long to solve an issue. Maybe they are limited in finances to call a technical support to solve the issue.

  7. I really didn’t notice any problems with create button or anything else. I got my posts approved, I didn’t clear any cache or cookies, login works normal. Everything is same for last few months, atleast on my side.

  8. And, if Virily is not earning they will close the site. I think it’s better they choose two or three people to represent the community. The representatives will be a go-between the admins and authors.
    I don’t think the admins are tooooooo busy to spare some time to address the issues by way of communicating to the issues that have been raised since the existence of the site.
