Channel Page Sneak Peek
Some of you may be the first to see the new channel page that’s in the works! Check out the refreshed design and new tabs, including a dedicated Subtitle Team section, coming early July. This preview will be initially available to 5% of users worldwide. A “Give Feedback” link will be available on the new page.
**For this channel page preview, please note that new channels with open channel manager applications will not display the usual application form, but a Google form instead. This is temporary for this preview period while the design is still being worked on. The Community Team will be sure to carefully review applications that come in through both methods.
In other words:
- For the 5% of all users who get the new channel page preview and want to apply to be a channel manager for a new show, they will still be able to apply, but it will be a Google form.
- For all other users who see current channel page, the application form will remain the same.
Starting June 26, dark mode will be the default mode for all Viki users.
Sharing Viewer Feedback
Moving forward, whenever the Community Team receives feedback from viewers who write in regarding contributed subtitles, a Community Manager will relay the message to the appropriate Channel Manager. The Channel Manager can then pass on this message to the relevant Editor or Moderator who may review and decide to accept the suggestion, or not. Kindly note that the Community Team/Manager acts only as a messenger to facilitate the communication. We are only hoping to increase transparency by doing this and will not comment on the validity of the viewer’s feedback.
2019 QC GIFT UPDATE
We haven’t forgotten, we promise! Initially, we were delayed by COVID-19, which affected our staff, and the vendors and shipping companies we’ve worked with in the past. Our team has had to rethink how we complete this yearly project.
As we look at alternative solutions, we’ve been keeping a lot of things in mind. This includes concerns about shipping delays around the world, coordinating with vendors as they reopened, and wanting to work with vendors that would only resume work once it was safe enough for their staff.
We’re really thankful for your continued patience, and our team hopes to have more updates for you soon.
