Virily Community Frequently Asked Questions (and some answers)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I wanted to start with this statement. “There is no intent to offend anyone with the information in the FAQ.” I am trying to get known good information about Virily and share it with as many authors as I can. The most important thing is validation. I have heard rumors and legends thrown around about Virily. We are slowly but surely validating the information we are getting as a community.

Dashboard

What we know – over the last 28 months the dashboard has updated the day of the month (except for July 2019). Early on, in the Virily past, the Dashboard updated daily. It is normally dashboard updates and two-three days later those who get paid that month have money. The other fact we know right now is that one Viril converts to 0.0011192637731625 US cents.

Badges

Badges do update. Users report that they have gotten new badges.

Badges have value (each one carries with it a Virily award for the bookworm, owl, etc.)

The question on the table from yesterday now is what does a locked badge mean? It does not mean you should not use that template. What it means other than the one thing we know it doesn.t is open right now.

Known double click issues:

There are two I know of, and I am listing them for the community in our new FAQ.

1. If you double click the upvote or click twice too quickly, it results in a downvote.

2. If you double click the comment button too quickly you get the infamous “duplicate comment submitted error)!

Why can’t I copy-paste the same comment over and over

one it’s rude. Two it is it an enforced comment remove the rule.

Why a 20 character limit on comments?

Why is there a 20 character limit on comments? The rule exists people didn’t treat authors posts with value. Good. Nice. Cool. Don’t do anyone any good. I do agree that we should, and we did ask the admin team to move the rule to 10 characters or more from 20. I understand many readers and authors here on Virily are not native English speakers, and the English rule for the site on posts and comments is hard. I find value in every comment. I don’t care if you make a spelling mistake in the comment or your post. Those don’t matter to me. I know you can’t edit your posts or your comments, and I know I’ve made a few spelling errors over the last three years.

Verified User

There are a couple of posts from 3 years ago by Virily Editor that talk about what it takes to become a verified user.

1. You have to be a positive contributor to the community

2. You have to adhere to and follow the rules of the community

Moderators

I know there is a lot of frustration in the community about how long it takes posts in the pending stage to be published.

1. The verified users are allowed to publish right away. The important thing to remember about the Verified Users is that not a single one of them started on Virily as Verified. We all followed the rules to become Verified.

2. The moderators appear (this is opinion) to work Monday – Friday. Based on that the queue grows over the weekend.

3. It should be noted first off that the Moderators are people, and as such, it is important to remember that they deserve time off. The other part is if we were to ask for more moderators, that costs Virily more money, and would force the value of a Viril down further than it now. Money has to come from somewhere.

  • First off no offence is meant by anything. I am just trying to get to the facts. ok?

    • Yes
    • No
  • Looking for more data on badges anyone?

    • Yes
    • No
  • Would you be willing to decrease the value of a Viril to get more moderators?

    • Yes
    • No

What do you think?

  1. Very detailed Virily Community FAQ analysis complemented by stunningly interesting comments, thank you very much for this greatly useful job!!! Also have a thought about downvoting – maybe it is better to give up this option? FB & some other networks don’t use it and nothing terrible happens. If you don’t like smb’s post, maybe it’s it is easier not to put any mark than “downvote”?

  2. I do not understand when one gets paid I reached plus 12 dollars in the 3rd week of July and now it is much more. I would prefer a fixed date for payment and updating of the dashboard at regular intervals.

  3. I too feel badges are not coming my way. Yes I am here just a month and if number of notifications is any indication (almost 9000) shows my activity here and no rude comments, no violations whatsoever. I have so far posted 79 posts with just 3. asking me to revise but none have been rejected

    Let me hasten to add I enjoy this site but just thought of contributing my two pence worth here in your post.

  4. Of all of the above, I am still most bothered by post approvals or verified member. I don’t know when things will get better. I have been a member for over three years, I think I also follow all the rules and I am not rude or offensive to anyone. Already a few times I asked Virily help to explain but unfortunately I have not received any response.

  5. I would settle for a dashboard update once a week. I don’t have an issue with comments being 20 characters…surely you can say that much! I understand that posts don’t get approved over the weekend. I had a big glitch happen with my review of Cloverfield. I had to enter it in the Story category because it was too long for a Poll. When I submitted it, it all ran together in one solid paragraph. Looks terrible. I emailed Support; but there was no response. 🙁

  6. I’m personally not bothered by any thing other than approving the posts … on Thursday I gave my approval to the post for the friday it’s just published today … orange friday … you don’t feel a little strange?

  7. Yes, we were all just participants in the beginning. After a long time, we became a Verified User. And I had a return to the recycling bins. Waiting for Saturday and Sunday posts, but that exists on other sites. Most importantly, not after the posts are published.
