Virily is a vibrant community, oh yeah no moose in this post.

I am not sure why I let the “the likes of you” private message bother me. But thank you to everyone who commented yesterday I am over it now!

Virily, is an application, was the focus yesterday. I am talking about the reality of how complex the application is. That said, I don’t condone the admin teams’ lack of communication. I do agree with CarolDM who has been a long advocate for the community and getting more communication from the Virily team.

The other thing is the rise of new accounts for old users so that they can post again. I do not believe this is against the rules, as long as the old account is removed at some point (after the Virils are moved over, of course). But I do understand that creating a new account has risks on both sides. The first is the relationships we build her eon Virily. I know that two people I’ve read for many years have new accounts. We will see how that works. I am not pointing this out or sharing this to do anything other than bringing up an interesting situation we have right now. We are on day 15 of a partial outage. That is very frustrating for those impacted.

I am in my second day of trying to get to 30 posts, I made it today (33) after yesterday (34). I am going to have to evaluate my options for Sunday, as that tends to be the lightest publication day. It seems that there are quite a few posts being added by the moderators right now. That is good to see overall, but I still see views on the site are down overall. Part of that is we are missing two consistent comments and view writers right now. Not having two people that often comment and read the posts of others is driving views down for many authors.

I have seen a few comments on posts talking about some intent by the admins. I did want to make sure everyone knew that the admin team is broken into two parts. The first part is the read and clear moderation team or the moderators. The second is the more traditional IT or site management team. I don’t think either of those teams has any reason or intent to block, exclude or remove specific authors. I have a working theory that I am trying to gather information to support. I don’t like throwing out accusations or theories if I can’t back them up facts and data.

We have roughly 1/3 of the active users currently unable to create. A few have created new accounts (again I don’t see anything wrong with that just reporting facts). Views this week late compared to this week early are up. They are nowhere near the peak we had hit in August.

It is the day after Halloween and a day sometimes called All Saints Day in the Christian world. Hopefully, you are going to have a great day and a great weekend!
