…looks inspired by Netflix, completely designed for viewers.
Has no mailbox. (In general, the volunteer tools are less and less accessible with every upgade.)
Has no appreciation corner for translating teams and the invite to become a contributor. Viki shooting itself in the foot here a bit? Or stating that it has more than enough volunteers, but not enough viewers?
to me yes I hate changes but if in makes it better why not, I did go through it, and the updates and all,I didn’t think it bad at all. as for copying netflix, maybe maybe not. those other places has the same thing so did they copy Netflix?
ok.ok I know some stuff is missing, , how about just giving it a chance, be it for new customers or whatever. the watch list is still there, just named differently ,
I very seldom used the inbox, I don’t remember seeing an appreciation corner for the volunteer subbers,
the watch list well its there just have to look.
maybe I am wrong, but hey, this isn’t the first time they updated this, remember just a couple of years ago, what we have they changed it to viki rakuten, and so many complaints!
so again give this a chance. yeah, not crazy with the black background! and just found inbox, look under your name
it’s not about giving a chance. We will come to use it.
Still it should not mean that our voice shouldn’t be heard. When things are not right, or at least could be better, we should tell them. We’re partly here for this, since we’re the primary users. So why not complain about the thing worth complaining for.
Black background? You’re probably in dark mode right? Otherwise it’s white.
However, the question remains if it’s a smart idea to “hide” it in that way. Why do I have to click on my profile just to check if I have any messages? And why do I have to double click to get to them?
A quick look and NO it’s horrible!
Gone are the shortcuts in the righthand corner to Watch history and Messages. I use Watch history every time I visit.
The layout looks too big for my screen and messy with all different categories and I have to scroll down to get to history.
I really don’t see it being better in any shape or form but I assume they don’t care and will implent it anyway
I feel there is no need for panic since they always start new things and after a while they usually go back to the way it was before.
As much as I like to show appreciation for volunteer’s work here at RakutenViki, I’m glad they removed that from that page. I have no interest for it and I think that is enough when the teams are mentioned in a segment in the finale episode.
I also do that one when they show the heart, and it says show appreciation, I click on the heart. But the one @bozoli showed in the screenshot annoys me a lot bc is usually the same team in there bc they make sure they are always on top, so the other teams are never shown there.
Yes, I also see that team everywhere. I thought it was because I just happen to pick the shows they translated to my list.
Hopefully it will be random if they implement the new layout to make it fair for all.
Why is the default night mode? I was in white mode when I visited and suddenly everything black. Fortunately I could change it, but if this is what Viki welcomes users with, it’s so oppressive, dark and full of anxiety.
More importantly… Why did you take away the inbox from clear view? It’s the first thing we want to see when logging in, and it has to show immediately whether there are new messages or not, instead of having to actually click on our picture, find it on the menu and go there repeatedly to check. This is a HUGE NUISANCE! The inbox is a precious tool and it should be very handy. You should actually work at making it better (with folders, sorting by name or subject, mass delete etc., and especially a bigger window for writing and text wrapping so that we can see the whole message we’re writing).
Then, our Watched history. It’s also not on the top menu of the home page, and instead there is a strip of watched near the bottom of the video thumbnails. Very inconvenient to go there looking for it.
For now, if I go to my profile page and my inbox, I can see everything alright: inbox, Watched History etc. But will this change in the Beta Version, or just the homepage?
Frankly, I don’t visit the homepage that much since the previous change. But don’t dare change the inside pages, okay?
