I am all new here on Viki and I want to build a community where I can talk to people about kdramas. But I am unable to figure out how to really use Viki. Can someone please help me?
You already are talking about k-dramas to people who love k-dramas. just join in on any topic you find here, in Discussions. It’s as simple as that.
That’s it? Wow! Thank you
One more question. How do you add profile picture? I guess mine is not visible
I think… (not quite sure) that mine was transferred from Viki.com. So, you can try change your picture there, and then see if it changes here in Discussions.
To change the picture on Viki.com:
- go to viki.com
- click on your profile icon in the top right corner
- Click Profile
- Find the button Edit Profile
- Click Choose File and upload your picture there
I had the same question when I started at Discussions. I got some help in this thread:
Hope that helps.
I think someone said this may have changed and that you can now just add it here under your profile (click on the little circle on the top right and then click your user name), but I’m not sure.
Fan Collections are Fun I have several
Discussions are great - you can start one like you did here about your favorite show etc. I have several discussions going right now.
Make a friend and you can do private messages through discussions.
What is something you like - I have an Umbrella Thread about that Trope.???
Do you like certain actors or kpop artists? Do you like certain shows - fantasy, romance etc
Do you wanna hang out with us in the Segue Cafe
Yes, over at the cafe (just click the blue ‘segue cafe’ words in the previous post and it will take you directly to that thread) we talk about any old subject that we feel like talking about at any given time - dramas, Kpop, idols, food, trips, whether we’re feeling sad or happy about something - whatever you want to share with whomever. Kind of just a ‘catch-all’ place.
If you don’t feel like reading all the way through the thread, you can just click on the light blue line that you will find to the right of the posts and slide it down to the bottom, and that will take you directly to the last post in any thread where you can then add to the conversation.
Try to explain how you did it bc my explanation was too lengthy, and you didn’t had to do all the things I explained in there. You are good with words, and can summarize it better, and make it less complicated for @imshivani235_850 to change the profile picture.
I’ll see what I can do. Maybe I’ll try to put it in bullet point format.
The Tech department must have fixed that bc when I change the profile pic and I log in to DISCUSSION it’s already changed to the picture in my profile without having to do all those things I had told you to do so I deleted that to not confuse anyone. I wonder how you understood my instructions…
Since @angelight313_168 deleted the post with the instructions that I followed, I’ll try to get all the major points. She can correct me if I missed something or got something wrong. I will type this under the assumption that you are truly starting from scratch.
First, log out of Discussions. (click on the profile circle in top right, scroll to bottom of drop down menu if needed, and click on ‘log out’)
Go to your regular Viki profile page (again, you get there by clicking on the round profile icon in the top right from the home page and then choose ‘profile’ from the drop down menu)
Click on the ‘edit profile’ button near the top left.
Even if you already have a profile picture there, you will need to replace it as if you are starting from nothing. Choose your pic (It can still be the same one you may have already had) and upload it.
Once this picture shows up on your actual profile page at Viki, you will then log out of your Viki account.
Log back into your Viki account and make sure the profile pic is still showing in the little profile icon at the top right of the page.
At this point you can then go back to Discussions and log back in. Make sure you are not going to Discussions through a bookmark or something where it has you ‘remembered’ and thus automatically signed in. The best way is to click on ‘community’ from top of Viki home page and then ‘Discussions’ at the top of that page - presumably the way you got to Discussions in the first place. Your profile pic should now automatically show up in Discussions as well.
There was one other step that was described to me, but I did not have to do that one to get mine to work, so I hope this works for you, too. And I hope my instructions are easy to follow. Good luck.
@imshivani235_850 I believe doesn’t have a Rakuten Viki profile page so your/those instructions won’t work; so hopefully someone else can help on how to add a picture in this discussion area only. I don’t know how is done.
Really? I guess I didn’t even realize you could be at Discussions without a Viki profile. In that case, I can’t help because that was my whole problem - that I couldn’t get a profile picture to load here.
Oh well, I think I’m going to copy those instructions over to the other thread, though, so maybe someone else can find them someday, if needed.
lol hopefully someone here knows and can help us out.
PS. I thought kdrama came through dramalist but she does have a viki profile page.
I’ll try help you!
Click in this link, it’s your page at Viki
Click at “edit your profile”
And it’s similar as the others social apps
Then it’s done, just waiting a few to here change too, but here change automatically
Mine would never change here automatically, that’s why I had to follow the above steps. I think it has to do with the fact that I already had a profile picture in place at my Viki account when I came here and for whatever reason it never transferred over.
Maybe it’s. The first time it’s happen with me too, but now it’s normal for me. I don’t know…
I believe the technical department took notice and fixed that bc once I change my pic at viki profile when I come to discussion is already change, and I have to do nothing like I used to have to do.
Thanks for your help you even found the viki profile for @imshivani235_850 !
