For 6 years, I’ve been contributing on Viki, and using it for almost double that. I’ve seen all there was to see, experienced many things, and discovered contributors. Both marvelous and horrific. I’ve translated more episodes than I could count. I tried almost every existing role on Viki, so as to be the most useful possible. I created cover pages,managed channels, moderated, edited, translated. And on top of that, I decided to create a French Academy that was dormant for years. With @piranna and @anna79_9 , we created a great amount of documents that would be useful for the community.
Despite lots of conflicts in the French community, lots of rivalry, lots of misunderstanding, lots of hypocrisy and jealousy, we kept moving forward, because we took pleasure in working for Viki.
That is not the case anymore. What I took to heart and appreciated was creating subtitles for non-english speakers with my own capacity. Not dealing with an incompetent staff who cannot even answer a message correctly,. And even threaten you. For more than a year, I tried rectifying what was wrong with the French community on Viki, through the help center, through private messages, through discussion, but hopelessly. Viki, you’ve made me lose all trust in you, and I only feel disgusted.
But I’m probably not the only one. Slowly, you’ll start to lose what you had best, your contributors. And be replaced by other Giants platforms.
I feel really sorry for dramas that I started without ever being able to finish. Eternal Love @about n which I’ve worked on both seasons but won’t be able to finish the third. On Bad prosecutor @luvidal that I just started and looked promising. On Nokdu flower @sohwakhaeng
where I fell in love with the poetry of every scene. Channel managers, I know you will probably be disappointed, you trusted me and I will let you down…And for that I’m sincerely sorry. Qualified contributors, you deserve better than what you have. You are amazing, you made everything possible, without you, Viki wouldn’t have ever been Viki. Don’t let them forget that.
