Am I the only one a bit annoyed with these? Lately, when I wake up in the morning, have my mug(s) of coffee, turn on my computer, open Viki, and find 30 messages in my inbox. From 20-30 a day… and 3/4ths of them are COMMUNITY NOTIFICATIONS!
I know that they are well and good and provide something to someone in Vikiland, but for me… I don’t care when this or that drama’s videos were loaded into Viki. I only care when it’s time for my editing team to begin. So these “helpful” reminders are just a waste in my inbox. I spend a good few minutes wasting time deleting these out. And, sadly, I have accidentally deleted a few messages from someone who asked me a general or important question because I’m in “delete” mode.
There has GOT TO BE another way around this. I don’t think the ENTIRE team needs to know when a video is being added, OR we should be given a choice to have them sent to our inbox. To me, this is just another form of “spam”.
I think it’s a good option for seggers but it’s just a hassle for editors…
Either make an option where we can turn them off for certain shows or make the notification disappear after 24 hours. It’s annoying to have to delete them all, and it does feel like spam sometimes. Or put it in a popup, instead of sending it to the inbox. Or make a filter so we can filter out community notifications.
It all boils down to the sad state of the Viki inbox. It needs a revamp.
Sweetie, I’m talking about the Viki inbox at the website, not email notifications. My email notifications are actually turned off as a matter of fact.
The community notifications are sent via the message inbox for the drama you are a volunteer of. Since I’m on many dramas, especially Chinese dramas, and my Chinese dramas can have 2-4 dramas that release a day. If I’m on 5 dramas that release 4 a day, that’s already 20 spam messages. Then we can’t forget the Korean dramas and Japanese dramas I’m a part of… It blows my inbox up!
