First off, to everyone that is suffering from the create button issue, but that is still reading and commenting on their friend’s posts, you are a hero! You deserve a huge pat on the back! You are a part of a community, and all of us feel bad about the situation that has occurred. I have gotten several PMs on the topic, and I know that Carol and Ghostwriter also have. As a wise man once said, we are all rowing together!
My grandfather used to say there are two ways to truly tell what kind of person someone is.
1. When things are going against them, they still help others.
2. What they do when they think no one else can see.
I applaud those of you still commenting without being able to post!
I thought today’s cover picture would help people a little understand the reality of the situation. It is hard building a site like Virily. The concept of the site is what ultimately makes Virily money. I am sure they are working to fix the issue, fewer submissions and blogs to review makes the moderator’s jobs a little better, but over time can jeopardize the income for the site.
It also tends to drive authors away.
I was going to take a couple of weeks off from the Movers project, but I am going to watch some posts until the create button issue if fully resolved. It isn’t just when the create button is back. It is when the backlog of posts that were not moderated gets out live on the site. That will take between 3-5 production days to get moving. (A production day for Virily is any day that the moderators review content and pass it onto the site). So for the next few days, I will keep a watch and see if the site dynamics change.
Thanks again to those reading and commenting, you are the heart of the community!
