Viki site has been having issues on and off lately. After the new homepage is implemented (or perhaps a coincidence?), more issues seem to surface. For the past few days, to a couple of weeks back, I’ve been having issues such as being logged out involuntarily, having to log in again and again, having to state my birth date again, having to refresh and reload at every few minutes while on the sub or seg tool, having to wait for video (on subtool and as per normal viewing) to load, if it does load, having to wait for connection to server, and worse of all, subs or edits weren’t captured! It used to take me about an hour to two to edit (both Eng and Chi languages, including adjustment of segs - in this case, the bot creations) each part, but now it takes double to almost triple the time! I don’t like to rant and would usually just wait for the issues to be fixed by the engineering backend, and usually, glitches are fixed quickly. Lately though, it has been so frustrating and such time-wasters!
Moreover, messages posted on comments seem to have disappeared? I don’t and refused to believe that was the result of Viki censorship. After all, there was no profanity or illegal links in my posts, merely letting channel fans know of Viki glitches or site issues which made them rant and fuss, although that’s quite usual fare, and they should (except if they fussed over matters concerning subs! They paid for entertainment on Viki. They should get a functioning and good-to-go site, esp for those who only have several precious hours - away from work, home matters, kids, study, etc - to relax and watch their favorite entertainment. Likewise for volunteers, too.
Back to my posts on Comment Section and Team Discussion, on channels where work is still in progress. In the past two days, I’ve posted several messages, including the following message, on two channels, but they were and still are nowhere to be seen!
Hello everyone, please be advised that, for several days and to date, there have been some technical glitches/bug issues sitewide, and many volunteers are not/have not been able to access the respective tool to segment/subtitle/edit. The videos - loading, playing, and/or the display of subtitles - are/were affected as well. Please be patient. Thank you.
Is Disqus having issues as well? Is my message of the nature that should be censored?
What the heck is happening? Why is there no notification to volunteers, let alone subscribers, about sitewide glitches?
I am on broadband connection. I use Chrome browser (latest version). I have unlimited data access. I don’t believe it’s due to reasons concerning my service provider because I am surfing and watching videos elsewhere with no problems.
I am still patient. I just feel bad for all OL teams that are awaiting releases, and for viewers/drama fans and volunteers who are feeling similar frustrations.
Fingers are tightly crossed for sitewide functionality to resume, and for bugs to begone!.
