Hard to decipher Viki!
What or who is Viki?
Them, us, everyone here?
Whatever the Viki company plans, we would never know the truth behind everything except working for Viki.
Maybe, we're thinking too much about it (I don't believe in Illuminati xd)
I don't see it like a bad or good thing.
I'm feeling indifferent.
Maybe, I got used to badges and events: 1st, 2nd, 3rd... 10th...
First times, it's nice and new, but slowly, you begin to feel used to it.
Like a déjà vu, like this old game or like the same perfume you wear everyday and don't smell anymore (I'm also someone who gets bored easily, that could explain too).
I'm not fond of collecting badges, nor dramas, but what is collecting? Like 'I have to get all badges that go out?' or what is exactly collecting?
Is collecting = having a particular item in multiple times, declentions?
If so, I'm also collecting orphan socks and pen that don't work anymore.
Perfumes too (Sephora France has 30% off on perfumes until April).
If they could do half-half like new and current channels + old channels to have 1 badge, it could be more "useful" in providing help in desert channels?
It's optimistic to see only the good sides, but exploring the other side of the dice:
There are volunteers who are only interested in these badges and not in the dramas concerned by the badge.
I heard that when they first announce that the dog badge would be only for specific dramas, there was a rush to ask to participate whereas the drama's page was there for some time (I don't know how much time).
And then people telling "Oh no, it's not for the badge, I'm interested in this drama".
Maybe it's true, maybe for some people, it's not.
But when the badge event would be finished, again, it would be gone with the badge and the drama would be left midway.
I don't have anything against people collecting things (if it makes them feel good, why not?), but certainly, do people have no shame to say that all they want to do is help the drama whereas we know where their main interest lies?
So if some people only focus on collecting badges and forget the drama that they initially supposeldy wanted to help, it makes me think that: "This badge, it's like a proof that they thought first of getting this badge instead of helping this drama... or helping us."
I might be a little harsh thinking like this, I guess... Kinda disappointed seeing this behaviour on Viki, aren't we a volunteering community = a helpful community?
