Day 1 on Wealthy Affiliate

Last Update: February 06, 2019

Atrocious experience attempting to watch the first video, “Wealthy Affiliate - A Comprehensive Platform Walk-through”.

I took 1.5 hours to watch the 30 minute video! :=(

I can assure you, that did not make for a happy camper.

For some reason, someone has prevented users from downloading the video

If that is as a security device to prevent piracy, it is very poor, as there are screen capture tools which work just fine, and with a little video editing… well, you can guess the rest.

Anyway, looking around (and being constantly harangued to “go Premium”) my fear is that I’ve fallen into a nest of vipers or a school of sharks.

Ah well, Rule #1 - keep money in pocket no matter the lure of “riches”.

I have been with WA for 5 years, there is no need to download videos you can access them whenever you want there is also a link that you can share if this is what you are trying to do. It does take a bit of time to get to know your way around, is there something we can help you with ?

Hi.

No, that particular video was just spinning wheels, so as I mentioned, it took me three times longer to watch it. Yikes.

Anyway, since then, as you rightly point out, it's been okay and I haven't had similar issues.

Regards.

everyone is of course entitled to their own opinion - here's mine: this place is the furthest from a "lure of riches" (or however the sayin goes) as it comes. If you are experiencing any issues, please ask for help; you'll find that most people here are more than willing ot help out with no expectation of favours in return.

Have a lovely day

cheers

Hi Karina.

Yes indeed, it does seem to be a nurturing community, which is a very good thing. Still, eyes wide open can *never* be bad advice.

I'm still here on Day 4 and just became a Premium member, so something's working out... lolz ;=)

Regards.

Welcome to WA!

Nobody's trying to scam you here. You don't even have to pay for anything for the first 10 lessons or your website. That's already a lot more than you'd get anywhere else. Shame you didn't mention that in your post as well.

Just a matter of interest - why were you downloading the video in the first place?

Best,
Alenka

Hi Alenka.

Well, the idea was to download the video and watch it in real time (30 minutes) instead of watching the spinning wheel and spending one and a half hours (which is what I had to do in the end).

I've got some tech skills, so downloading the video whilst attending to other things would be natural for me; it's what I do in similar situations on other sites.

Interesting post.

So far off the mark ...

Why download a video that you can have access to 24/7 for the rest of your life?

To sell it to someone else or share Kyle and Carson's hard work for free?

I get the feeling you might be in the wrong place - no vipers here, just a bunch of hard working folk who are EXTREMELY happy with what they get for their subscription.

If you have an open mind and any sense we might see you on day 2 then (and you won't even have to spend any money to get to day 2 and beyond) ...

Just wondering why you went premium (only just noticed you are)

Hi.

I think you've gotten hold of the wrong end of the stick there.

Hopefully, my responses to earlier comments will clear up the matter.

As I was the second person to reply I did not have the benefit of being able to view any responses and had to go on what I thought was a rather negative post - especially coming from someone who had only been here for a day!

So if I got the wrong end of the stick I apologise and am happy that you now seem to be a bit happier.

Hopefully day 2 and beyond will each be better than the previous day

Hello and welcome!
we know that nothing is for free in life so don't be shy to release those coins is a good investment! Oh I see you are premium - congratulations!

Hi Matie.

Yes indeed, thank you for the advice.

Caution is *always* advisable, no other course of action is sensible. However, "eyes wide open" never should be allowed to become "eyes wide shut". ;=)

Regards.
