    It's barely working in my recent experience. Views are at a crawl. Also, I'm noticing that I don't appear to be receiving credits properly (for example, 1783 credits in the viewer translated to 153 credits on the site....wha?!?). Meh...whatever, though. I don't really rely on Vagex. For a short time, they were doing well.

    Yeah, Vagex, working or not gets the award for all-time-wtf-name for a service.

    It's like they picked up a domain originally intended for selling a douche or any other feminine hygiene product...and said, "Fuggit...let's go with it!"

    Under 301 views Vagex seems to work ok. Over 301, Vagex seems to crawl. It uses credits a-ok, but YouTube seems to be filtering out almost all of the views resulting in very little movement of the view count. Upping the time viewed might be in order, but even at 90 seconds for a 4 min video hasn't done the trick and I'd hate to have to use like 7-8 credits (x3 or 4 since not all count) for each view. It used to work ok, but recently maybe YouTube has caught on that if a majority of your views are 30-60-90 second increments... well, it doesn't seem to count very many of them. Burned through about 20,000 credits for only a few hundred hits, a couple weeks ago. Like a 50:1 ratio. Terrible.

    Since Youtube's algorithm update a lot of view enhancer sites have suffered.

    In December Youtube gave an update that meant almost every video wasn't auto playing with the Vagex software any more and there was a bit of panic over that. The programmers quickly responded with an update but since then ( and especially after March's algorithm update ) the viewers are still getting tweeked for optimum performance.

    We have to remember that Youtube are getting smarter and are now updating every couple of months, so the programmers are constantly having to change things around.

    All in all I think its an excellent service and always have. There are some really nice people on the forum, and a lot of techincally savvy people there to help you straight away with your problems. And very often the viewer problems can be fixed by updating your flash on your IE or updating to the latest version of IE.

    My likes / subs are still the same as ever, sometimes forget to turn them off and get 100 overnight. Then again I am a Guru member and most likely use a lot more credits than regular users.

    Vagex IS good for likes/subs for sure. And views up to 301. Beyond that, it (lately) seems very sketchy. Hopefully they can adjust to whatever YouTube is doing again, because Vagez used to be pretty darn good all around. I am an "expert" account member, so I get a decent amount of credits. It's also a super cheap service, so if they can get it working well again, it'll be great.

    However, after a month of contacting them, I STILL cannot log onto the forums... and I'm a paid subscribing member. So, that's not great either.

    I like how you pretend to be just a member of Vagex (worst name ever btw). I have written Vagex support 3 times - The first time I got a 2 word answer "they can t" and that's verbatim of what they responded, and it took them 3 days to respond. The next time I wrote them I checked the ticket status after 4 days and ... they closed it. Pretty important question/issue too. Now, I wrote them a 3rd time, and it's been 2 days, I'll give an update on their professional and caring response.

    I get a horrible ratio after 300 views - seems like you get 300 views for about 460 points and then after that it gets like 1 view to 30 points. My videos have not got any subscribers, likes or comments and I don't know why. Should I even try to write their support?

    I feel uncomfortable doing a subscription with them, they are not very customer friendly. I mean "they can t" was a response to a question I had. I own a site and I would never dream of writing that to any of my customers. I always remind them that I'm so grateful and fortunate to have them.

    Anyways, I heard "***********" is good. Does anyone have any good sites for youtube views, likes and subscribes? It's easy money on the side for fiverr type sites.

    Well, it's been 40 hours and I got 160 views, no comments yet, no likes yet, no subs yet and I wrote support about 3 days ago with no response yet.

    Are your videos set above 60 seconds?

    There may be server maintenance going on right now. I usually get about 9000 views a day and have a consistent flow of credits going. But for 2 days I got about 5000 views so I think the server maintenance has ran on a little longer than usual recently.

    Hopefully support will get back to you soon. But I think its more likely this is something you can bring up on the forums. Maybe you can read the forums to see if anyone else has reported anything similar.

    But it all depends on how you allocate your credits and the view length you set. And sometimes it can be down to bad luck. If the only people running the viewer are people who dont choose to allow subs / comments / likes, then it may take some time to get them. Other days you can add a video into the loop and get 300 likes in a day because luckily most users have that feature enabled on their viewers.

    I'm sorry...but WHAT? 9000 views a day? You can verify this? Or is this just what Vagex is TELLING you that you received?

    I, like most of the others in this thread, see just a minor trickle of views per day regardless of how many credit I set to my videos. And, yes, all of my videos are set for the full length of the video (in most cases 120 seconds and above).

    So, unless you can provide some sort of verification on this claim, I'm gonna have to call bullshit.

    You seem to be pretty friendly with the staff over there so, why not have them join us in this thread to answer some support questions? I would venture to say that a big chunk of their client base are probably BHW members. I don't see a lot of support happening in their "support forums" and they are terrible with email response.

    Personally, I've all but abandoned them. I cancelled my subscription about a month ago (I was a "Guru" member). The results are just not what they (or you) claim them to be.

    The two programs currently working for me are u2bviews and theknown's SYV software shows great potential. It's working very well - but more users are needed to get it really ramped up.

    Don't get me wrong, I'd love to see Vagex working again. But it seems that the devs are slowly letting it go the way of Enhance Views.
