Really Viki?

What’s the purpose of “Created” section? Why is some white girl (Margarita) telling Asians how to live our culture for Asian Heritage month?

I don’t get Viki’s logic. So you rather waste your time and effort on these no-name “vloggers” and no longer allow fan channels than on licenses for Kdramas?
What happened to Viki? Why is it going down into a s**t hole?


I fully agree that the section is a waste of time and effort (and possibly money?).
Nevertheless, this has nothing to do with fan channels and licenses.
I would rather say
"Instead of this, make the site ,more user-friendly and more volunteer-friendly by implementing easy little tweaks we all have repeatedly asked for.


This Clips and Created trend on VIki is a mystery to us all.


I just don’t get this created and VikiID either. Everytime i think i get it, I don’t. And Viki isn’t very clear about it either. Ok it’s to celebrate Asian heritage but I only know that because that is what Viki says not because it’s clear when you look at the project. Same as the whole trendsetter thing, I don,t get that either. Nothing against those Youtubers who are part of these projects but if I want to watch their videos, I watch it on Youtube not on Viki.


Dito, and I rarely watch such videos …
I just hope it’s not some strategy, to go from DIY to order channel via rakuten shop. I just don’t hope it.

Eventhough I feel as if the amount of added videos will one day break the volunteer’s neck.
I mean when viki was at the early stages, somehow the amount of shows at least seemed likely to be manageable for ko-eng subbers. And that was the start, now they just drop channels, clips, variety and now created???
I can’t even imagine the light at the end of the tunnel, in which direction does viki want to go?
Or totally going against yt?


Totally agree. And i feel like Viki become a “skyrock blog/vlog” for teenagers beurk


I don’t even want to talk about it. I was so confused when I heard the news.

I really don’t understand what Viki is doing.


Amen to all the prior commenters

I just had to go there:

Terms of use …

And I am asking myself, is viki actually doing this point justice, for a circle of customers plus 18.

I can’t tell … When I was 18, there was no internet, no cell phone, let’s not talk about smart phones, …
When we would look for recipes, fashion and so on it would have been a magazine to look for. So I don’t know if the new added feature even meets the desire of the young adults of today.

viki did a survey some months ago, and they asked about created content, however I thought they ment short dramas like Dramaworld, but I guess they ment a totally different road. Anyway I know, that I did go for the “original” Asian content but well, let’s see where this will lead to.
