Waves

so young, and strange across the cool autumn sand we blow across and out above the waves and drift out across the sea and beneath the setting sun the waves reach out toward the land and we watch as it slowly falls away searching and sleeping

Gentle Depth

in the land of a thousand summer sunsets we sail onyx grain rivers as petrified lightning strikes trembling mountains high above the opalescent valleys

a thin layer of white dust caresses the place between earth and sky in swaying mist and tumbling ashen waves

ghosts slide in and out of the haze drawing waves, disappearing within the stillness within the motion of a soft kiss or a gentle embrace

her hand falls upon my shoulder and we stand and watch what passes in easy time and a cool breeze

What are you thinking?

She speaks, and the words fall lightly upon my ears

and I come away from this place a little.

Time feels slow in this place.

Just watching, I say, How is your book?

Good — I fall so deep into them here.

We are losing many people.

Hello all, good evening. Sorry to bother you again, so soon after my last Topic. But I just received a letter from a friend from the UK, a pen pal, who I had last written this :

Dear A.,

I hope this letter finds you and your family well. I have been thinking about you, last time we wrote to each other you mentioned that your Father was in hospital, and I imagine how much that saddened and affected you. I had thought about it, but didn't want to intrude so I kept thinking of writing, and then leaving it.

It's a difficult moment, I pray that you are well and that things have improved for you and your family. Won't take too much of your time, but thought it was good to send a message, wishing you peace and health in this difficult time.

Have a good week,

Sincerely,

Yann.


Backgrounder :

My letter was sent on May 9th. It had been weeks since their last letter – on March 24th.

It revealed their Dad was in Hospital, ICU. I feared the worst, and waited.

And visited their profile, to see if they had logged in. No.

Seemed to confirm sad news had happened. And I was just surprised to receive a letter. Yes, Dad had passed away, and the family had a very difficult time.

I don't know if you all realize, but I believe we are living in a Historic moment. Many things will change, and in the Future, people will ask you, me, us that were here, how was that moment, that year, which is uncertain how, but I feel will change many things.

Irreversibly, probably.

As I read their letter, I wished to have a sympathy, condolences, a good stamp to send in my reply. Will likely use one of the Flower Whisper ones.

And I pray for inspiration, as those are not easy to write.

Thanks for reading this. Keep safe and care and help your immediate family, we all need each other.

Yann.


Comments Received :

This topic was originally posted at the SlowlyApp Reddit subforum. And my good friend -littleghost did reply with sympathy :

I think the blue iris stamp was a really good one to use in this situation. I'm sorry to hear about what your pen friend is going through right now.

A condolences stamp might me a good idea, but I feel like we already have many similar kinds of stamps. “Blue Iris”, “Stay Strong”, “Hugging Bear”... What are some ideas you would have for a new stamp design that fits within this?


And my reply :

Thank you, Ghost.

I am glad you liked the Blue Iris choice, I went thru the Flower Whispers set and looked at them, and the pop-up descriptions attached to each one. The Iris whispered the closest to what I felt my message should be.

I don't have much experience in dealing with this, and this turned out to be the best with the stamps I have. We don't always have images permissions enabled with people, which would permit attaching a great wide variety of cards — which we can find in the net.

Thought there are so many losses happening, that it would be worth to have a stamp for Mourning. A Remembrance. Guarded, with sympathy, while a peaceful design.

I don't have a proposal in mind, searched for something for an illustration to the post — and settled in the beautiful Belgian one, which is a Memorial stamp for a Belgian monarch – Queen Astrid. Who looks memorable in that.

Astrid of Sweden (Astrid Sofia Lovisa Thyra, 17 November 1905 – 29 August 1935) was Queen of the Belgians as the first wife of King Leopold III. By birth she was a princess of Sweden's royal House of Bernadotte.

She was queen for less than two years, dying in a car accident at age 29. Her only daughter, Joséphine-Charlotte, later became Grand Duchess of Luxembourg, while both of her sons reigned as King of the Belgians.

Queen Astrid of Belgium Wikipedia page

I found a couple of specific ones, made for remembering and honouring two great men.

And just loved looking at their images in great detail, as shown here.

But we don't have an specific person in mind, so it needs to be more of an idea, and one that could also span Cultures – to be meaningful in many countries.

I also found a very touching, beautiful design showing the Vietnam War Veterans Memorial. And it is fitting to show it, great work.

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial is a 2-acre (8,093.71 m²) U.S. national memorial in Washington, D.C. It honors service members of the U.S. armed forces who fought in the Vietnam War, service members who died in service in Vietnam/South East Asia, and those service members who were unaccounted for during the war.

Hello Kitty 45th Anniversary Stamps are impossible to get.

@Slowly Team — could those be added to Time Machine ?? Please ??

The image above is just a small sampler of the MANY Hello Kitty stamp sets — issued in 2019, for the 45th Anniversary, and ONLY in a few Asian countries.

Philippines, Singapore, others. Image captured from the Most Complete collection ever — LessonWang's. And here a larger image of a Gorgeous one!

I have sent a Request to Slowly Team via Twitter, where my account is actively linked to the one at Reddit and promoting posts two ways.

A suggestion?

Hello Kitty sets are hard, I am not even counting on getting them. Maybe they COULD get added to Time Machine, they fit profile.

  • time limited
  • special editions, sometime country specific
  • and no longer available


A Report from the Slowly Stamp Collector's Front Lines

I have been speaking to Stamp Collector friends, with 470+ Stamps, who are only missing those — and working HARD to get any of them, with NO success.

Thank you so much for your letter.

Unfortunately, my stamp collection stopped.

Even though I wrote almost ninety letters, I still don't have any stamps with Hello Kitty*.*

It's very difficult because I have to delete the contacts and then return them again.

I think a hundred contacts are too little to collect the stamps.

I have to give that up. I don't have much space in the directory and I can't wait long as everyone answers me.

It's a shame that even with ninety letters and I didn't get any of the eight stamps I wanted.

Well, there's nothing I can do. Life goes on.

This is a REAL letter, I just translated it from another language.

And my reply was :

Good to receive a letter from you — I was thinking about you, but maybe you could be busy, and with that problem of having to add and remove people from your list to keep the correspondence.

That's why I was happy when I saw your letter coming. I was thinking of writing also about the issues of large stamp collections -– I just saw yours now and you're already at 485, my God!!! :) Olé!! :)

Very good, and you know what I think about those Hello Kitty? I don't care about them, they're very rare; I'm going to go slower with collecting more now, since it seems to me that we would be enjoying the stamps a lot more like that.

So — please Slowly Team, could you consider adding these to the wonderful Time Machine ?

Please and Thank you, with cream on top, Cheers!!

Crossposted on Twitter too — To clarify, this text was originally prepared and posted at our SlowlyApp subReddit in this Topic.


Some of the issues that my Pro Collector Friend mentioned ?

It might not be clear, from this small quoted piece, that the hard limit of 100 pen pals Maximum at any time is a serious limitation for the serious Hunter.

This friend had described to me before like getting a Senegal and Tanzania stamps required about 30 pen pal additions, with a letter each sent — all requesting the small favour of a return short reply with their own National Stamp.

Until, the final person in that long hunt obliged — and sent a reply with the stamp.


This is really the spirit of Collecting

I admired their perseverance and stamina.

To search that many new users, adding one or two at a time, always working to keep below the 100 maximum limit.

This person wasn't only hunting for one country, or another. They spent a whole year pursuing stamps from countries all over the world in this way.

The average time to get that hard to find stamp? They mentioned one month, and commented on my own successful acquisition of a few difficult to find stamps — from Belize, Cuba and Ecuador.


Requesting and Waiting, slower but more satisfying ?

I saw you've already got the stamp from Belize. You're luckier than I am. I waited almost three months...

This way of getting the stamps is very slow but I enjoy myself much more than I just being given it by some large collector.

I remember my feelings, how excited as I waited for their letters, and I was very curious if the stamp would be there. Now I lack these feelings.

Very true — I also find that I enjoyed my stamps a lot more when they came to me slowly. Each new stamp, found on an incoming letter was a thrill.

Each new stamp set I acquired, one at a time, with purchased coins. As there were NO Free coins until recently, Slowly version 5.1, October 2, 2019 introduced this feature.

And when I got that new and lovely stamp set (always carefully selected, I have some huge favourites), when I got that new set I would start using it. With the closest pen pals, one new stamp in each letter, sequentially working my way thru the typical 6 in a set. Until they had the complete set.

That was the time to switch to some different stamp, a new single or maybe another set that this friend still did not have.


My response to that paragraph above

I also wrote reflections that I thought about the collections – and I agree with you, that it is better to go more slowly, we enjoy them more.

I was lucky with the stamps from Cuba and Belize, Ecuador. I picked some people to write, and I had answers from almost all of them, I sent two letters to each country.

But it's necessary to be careful – I chose people who were on the internet recently, and who had a good Ratio for replies. It worked, and I still have letters with them now. ;)

The only problem is that I find it difficult to cut the link, I mean if I have got the stamp — I can't simply remove them. That would be plainly using them, to get what I want, and discarding them; not right in my opinion.

It would certainly be good for you if you could have a larger number, a greater limit. Maybe we could think of a suggestion and send to Slowly ? I can always write to them on Twitter.

All of which is true — that is exactly how I obtained these 3 countries, and I still keep corresponding with the agreeable people who obliged my request (and I do it on their own language, an important courtesy, in my opinion.

For the 3 countries, I had 5 replies, one that did not engage. All are still ongoing pen pals. I selected 2 people in each country, so I wouldn't have to wait a month to obtain a single country's stamp. Worked. :)

from Unfinished sketches of soulless businesses and hobgoblins that control their destiny

Why do some recruiters play classic head-in-the-sand game with candidates?

An overwhelming number of recruiters and companies think they are in the master's seat and the candidate in the galley slave's position. this is best summed up by the Hindi word 'naukri' derived from naukar (servant, henchman, etc.). Hindi that way is very straight forward, factual, and down to earth in its articulation.

Get the drift of what it means to be treated lowly or menially? Here are two sample scenarios from the Indian PR industry.

Scenario 1

An MNC PR agency interviews a candidate with 10+ years of experience in content for its Bangalore office. The role is that of a senior manager (content). The test and interviews are over by November.

After that, there is a long and ominous silence that lasts until the first week of February, when, at last, out of the blue, the agency rings up the candidate (who meanwhile has gone through multiple tests and interviews) and casually inquires if he is still available for the position. Scenario 2

The HR at another MNC PR agency in Bangalore interviews a candidate with 12 years' experience for a senior manager role in the content function.

The HR person glances hurriedly at the candidate's resume as though she has a plane to catch and gets him to explain the nuts and bolts of his job profile. She seems completely clueless and on top of that disinterested in the whole process. At the end of the HR interview, she tells the candidate that the decision on content roles is taken at the Delhi head office of the agency since the content head sits out there.

The candidate keeps on following it up with the HR representative, branch head, etc, in Bangalore.

Finally, he gets a simple one-liner from the HR representative requesting him to explore other career options since the content head hasn't had time as yet to review his resume which was no more than two pages of bulleted content.

It turns out that the content head is a busy bee buzzing around in multiple roles. That of the content head, thought leader, faculty, social media maven, lobbyist, animal activist, tree hugger, etc. Barring the last two roles, which look pretty much sinecure, the rest are all salaried roles. It is customary in many agencies to pass the onus of hiring from branch head to national head to functional head and back, unmindful of the fact that there is a candidate out there waiting to come in from the cold...

An organization is not a job giver and a candidate is not a job taker. they are partners in progress and partners by free will. and as long as they can add value mutually the relationship continues or else it gets dissolved.

I just wrote a long, from the heart, a reply;

To a new user who joined our sub for SlowlyApp at Reddit this morning.

The post started as a comment, and I wanted to cheer her and offer some advice, from someone who has experienced quite similar events; and more than once, indeed.

Upon developing the comment, I felt it had a lot to cover, to share and to explain; and that it could be helpful to others. Since I have been posting actively on my new blog, it felt like good content for a new page.

A Reddit Topic, the 1st post, from a new Reddit user and my reply to it [ Her post lightly edited — inserting line breaks for easier reading ]


“I need Advice, please”

So, one of my penpals sadly deactivated his account today. We only wrote 3 letters each but I really enjoyed talking to him. I really loved reading the letters I got from him and I loved answering them. This past week I've been really busy with school and I wasn't able to answer him.

I like to write long letters and I just didn't have the time to write one so I put it off (didn't want to send him a generic answer). Anyway, I can't help but feel a tiny bit responsible that he deactivated his account. I don't want him to think that I didn't want to answer, especially since he included a picture of himself in his last letter. I hope he doesn't think I didn't answer because of the way he looks or something.


I don't know if this is me overthinking or if that really could be the case. So why am I writing this here? Since he told me his actual name and even sent a picture it really wasn't too hard to find his social media. I kind of want to write him on there to tell him that I am working on a letter and that, should he still want to talk, he should get back on Slowly.

On the other hand, I don't feel comfortable sharing my social media with him, plus I'm afraid he's going to want to talk on there instead of writing letters (which is not something I want). What do you think I should do/not do? (Any advice is greatly appreciated)


And, yann2's reply :

Well, hello and welcome to Slowly, and to the Reddit sub dedicated to it. Great that you found your way here, as many people do share experiences, ideas, etc.

In regards to your loss, we feel the pain as most people will experience those loses – we meet great people and get close, deep conversation develops until. Something or another happens, and the person quiets down, or worse, de-activates their account.

Not much we can do to avoid it, it does happen and is usually not a good penpal's fault. I don't think he leaving Slowly was due to one late reply from you; it's possible he wasn't having a good experience, or had some bad episode with someone else. Or that work or school demands are pilling up and they need to be out to cover that.

I have experienced something very similar, and I still mourn it. :(


I have never responded to the last great letter my friend sent me, as they left Slowly and I am out of touch. One thing I considered was posting a reply letter to them, carefully written to not have any sensitive or private info, in a Blog format.

I have done that with other letters, normal ones that were full and well written, and I wanted to share and have other readers enjoy them. I received comments and good feedback from that, as well as thank yous for letting them see these.

(And as I write here, it's clear this reply will develop into an upcoming Blog post; it's just too relevant and important to be lost in an obscure corner of the Net.)


So, back to your situation, you could create a new and anonymous social media account, to send a message/letter, and mention that you really wanted to send that reply. But would prefer not to correspond over this new connection, invite them back into Slowly, even if they have to create a new account if the previous one was lost.

If they did abandon the account, for 30 days the data remains in the servers; a user has a chance to return and request re-activation, before it gets deleted forever soon.


Starting Anew :

If they cannot retrieve the account, you can copy the full text of any of the letters in your folders – it's an option in the '...' menu at the bottom left corner of all letters — “Copy to Clipboard”.

Do that, then start writing the new user account a new draft letter; then Paste in the data from clipboard, and send. I usually include a Header at the top of such a letter for reference, example :

Your letter dated May 11, 2020.

——-[ forwarded letter begins ]——-


...with these copies, a new and barren account will benefit from once again having the original letters for reference.

I do enjoy those sometimes. When time passes and a memory comes to mind, I will sometimes reach back into a particular user's folder, and read – one, two or many of our letters.

Good people make good correspondents. Good writers make for memorable moments, and content to be cherished.

Consider this, my welcome letter to you, a new friend in need.

Sincerely,

Yann2.

Değer Kaybı

Araç Değer Kaybı Nedir?

Meydana gelen bir kazası sonrası aracın kaza öncesi hasarsız ikinci el piyasa değeri ile kaza meydana geldikten ve tamir edildikten sonraki ikinci el piyasa değeri arasındaki farka araç değer kaybı denmektedir.

Araç Değer Kaybı Nasıl Hesaplanır?

Araç değer kaybı hesaplaması 01.06.2015 yürürlüğe giren Karayolları Motorlu Araçlar Zorunlu Mali Sorumluluk Sigortası Genel Şartları ve eklerinde yer alan yöntemler aracılığıyla hesaplanmaktadır. Ayrıca bu hesaplamaya etki eden bazı faktörler bulunmaktadır.

Aracın kilometresi Marka ve model bilgisi Hasar geçmişi ve niteliği Kusur durumu Üretim yılı Trafiğe çıkış tarihi Aracın pazar değeri bu faktörlerden sadece birkaçıdır.

Nereden ve Ne Zaman Temin Edebilirim?

Aracınız kazaya karışmışsa hak kaybına uğramamak adına bir an önce sigorta şirketine başvuruda bulunmanız gerekmektedir. Zira sigorta şirketleri aracın kaza sebebi ile uğradığı kayıp ile ilgili tazminatları araç sahipleri tarafından talep olmadığı müddetçe ödemekten kaçınmaktadır. Bu sebeple bu alanında uzman bir avukat desteği ile konumu itibariyle güçlü olan sigorta şirketlerine karşı işlemlerinizi takip ettirerek hak kaybına uğramanızın önüne geçebilirsiniz.

Bunların dışında;

– Söz konusu tazminatı kaza tarihinden itibaren 2 yıl içerisinde talep edilmelidir. Alacağınızın zamanaşımına uğramasına fırsat vermeden en kısa zamanda zararınızın giderilmesini talep ederek zamanaşımı süresinin kesilmesini sağlamalısınız. Aksi halde hak kaybına uğramanız kuvvetle muhtemel olacaktır.

– Araçta hasar gören bölge daha önceden hasara uğramamış ya da yenileme işlemine tabi tutulmamış olmalıdır. Aksi halde değer kaybı alınamamaktadır.

– Mini onarım ile giderilebilen basit kaporta, plastik tampon/parça onarımları, cam, radyo/teyp, lastik, hava yastığı, jant, mekanik, elektrik, elektronik ve döşeme aksamı hasarları teminat kapsamı dışında kalmaktadır.

– Ağır hasar kaydına sahip olan çekme ve/ya hurda belgeli araçlarda meydana gelen hasarlarda tazminat alınmamaktadır.

– Kısa süreli kiralık araçlar, taksi, dolmuş, test aracı, koleksiyon ve antika sayılan araçlardaki hasar sebebiyle yapılan talepler ve tekerlekli/paletli ve zırhlı toplumsal müdahale araçları, belediye otobüsleri, yol süpürme araçları, itfaiye araçlarındaki hasar sebebiyle yapılan talepler teminat kapsamı dışında kalmaktadır.

– Motorlu bisikletlerin kullanılmasından ileri gelen zararlar teminat dışında kalmaktadır.

– Aracın kilometresi 165.000 üzerinde ise tazminat alınamayacaktır.

– Kazada tamamen kusurlu ya da diğer sürücüye nazaran daha kusurlu olan taraftan zarar talep edilebilecektir. Araç değer kaybımı temin etmek için ne kadar masraf yaparım?

Uzmanlarımız tarafından yapacağınız başvurularda; şartlarınızın uygun olması halinde, hiç bir masraf ödemeden değer kaybınızın hesaplanması ve tahsil edilmesi mümkündür. Araç değer kaybı başvurusu için gerekli belgeler nelerdir?

Araç değer kaybı ile ilgili sigorta şirketine yapacağımız yazılı başvuruda birtakım belgelerinde sunulması gerekmektedir.

Talep beyanı, Trafik kazası tespit tutanağı resmi tasdikli sureti veya taraflar arasında tutulmuş kaza tespit tutanağı, varsa ifade tutanakları veya görgü tespit tutanakları, Mağdur araca ait ruhsat, Hasarlı araç resimleri, Mağdur araç sahibine/zarar gören üçüncü şahsa ait banka hesap bilgileri (banka — şube adı, IBAN numarası), Maddi hasara ilişkin ekspertiz yapıldıysa eksper raporu bunlardan yalnızca birkaçıdır.

Araç Değer Kaybı

Araç Değer Kaybı Nedir?

Meydana gelen bir kaza sonrası aracın kaza öncesi hasarsız ikinci el piyasa değeri ile kaza meydana geldikten ve tamir edildikten sonraki ikinci el piyasa değeri arasındaki farka araç değer kaybı denmektedir. Kaza sonrasında hasar gören aracınızı en orijinal parçalar ile aslına uygun olarak tamirini gerçekleştirseniz bile bu hasar geçmişi kayıtlara geçecektir. Bu durumda aracınızın ikinci el piyasasında talep edilebilirliği eskiye nazaran azalacaktır. Söz konusu haksız fiilinden kaynaklı araç değer kaybı zararının giderilmesi için kusursuz veya daha az kusuru olan taraf kendisinden daha çok kusurlu veya tam kusurlu olan tarafa (ya da sigortacısına) talepte bulunabilecektir.

Değer Kaybını Talep Edilmek İçin Gerekli Şartlar

Değer kaybı tazminatı kaza tarihinden itibaren 2 yıl içerisinde talep edilmelidir. Alacağınızın zamanaşımına uğramasına fırsat vermeden en kısa zamanda zararınızın giderilmesini talep ederek zamanaşımı süresinin kesilmesini sağlamalısınız. Aksi halde hak kaybına uğramanız kuvvetle muhtemel olacaktır.

Araçta hasar gören bölge daha önceden hasara uğramamış ya da yenileme işlemine tabi tutulmamış olmalıdır. Aksi halde değer kaybı alınamamaktadır.

Aracınız kazaya karışmışsa hak kaybına uğramamak adına bir an önce sigorta şirketine başvuruda bulunmanız gerekmektedir. Zira sigorta şirketleri aracın kaza sebebi ile uğradığı değer kaybı ile ilgili tazminatları araç sahipleri tarafından talep olmadığı müddetçe ödemekten kaçınmaktadır. Bu sebeple araç değer kaybı alanında uzman bir avukat desteği ile konumu itibariyle güçlü olan sigorta şirketlerine karşı işlemlerinizi takip ettirerek hak kaybına uğramanızın önüne geçebilirsiniz.

Collect Free Coins by watching Short Ads

Getting the Free Coins by watching Slowly's short videos is simple and a popular feature. You spend a little time, the ads can be just a static image (which can be closed immediately) or most commonly, short 10 to 30 second long videos.

Many people like using it to collect coins to buy some of the attractive and colourful stamps available at the Stamp Store. You can save for :

  • a single stamp — which starts at 25 Coins; some are 50 Coins each.
  • a full set, a better deal since there's usually 6 stamps, for 100 Coins.

Individual stamps are 25 to 50 Coins each, and pricey in comparison. Sets give you more stamps for your coins.


How to get Free Coins ?

It is very simple.

  • Head to the rightmost tab in the app (where your profile is)
  • Just under the Stamp Store little image, there's a “My Coins: nn and a yellow “Purchase” button.
  • Click on the Purchase button, a new window will pop up.
  • Scroll to the very BOTTOM of the list.
  • Look for the “1 Coin” item.
  • While the screen loads, Slowly connects to servers, to get a video to show. This area will show “Loading...” at first.
  • Once it has one (depends on your region, locale), it will show a “Watch Video” button.
  • Click that, wait until it's done, return to previous screen.
  • A small message will show on screen : One Coin added to your balance.

And this can be done again in 15 MINUTES.

Hard core collectors have been setting timer alarms (for 15 min) so they know how soon to go again. A friend had mentioned this to me, I posted it in a Reddit comment — and am now using this method myself. (the snapshot in the page banner is my phone, running a Timer and Slowly together.)

It increased my average per day coin acquisitions nicely. From my previous 25 coins per day estimate, I would say I am up to around 36 to 40 or so. So running a Timer is a good idea.

Enjoy, collect coins, and buy stamps for yourself or to gift a friend.


Wait — Isn't this Abusing the Slowly Coins Store ?

No, not really, not at all. Why?

  • These ads are provided by Google AdSense, they have many to go.
  • Slowly Team gets a fee for each ad shown.
  • The more ads we watch, the higher the funds they receive.

Makes sense? This is new, since October 2, 2019 – when version 5.1 came out. Slowly team chose to add this feature, as it will provide them with additional income.

Their ONLY sources of income until now were the sales of stamps from the Store. Or the kind hearted users who chose to support them with a Buy Me A Coffee donation.

These cool folks are recognized with an exclusive stamp (see below), and their user names are added to the Credits list – in the app itself and on the company website.


Who Pays for These Ads ?

As shown in the screencapture above, from a Slowly Team reply on Twitter, these are “Rewarded Ads”, controlled and paid out by Google Admob programme.

What is a rewarded ad? An overview of rewarded video and other formats

Rewarded ads provide an opportunity for users to watch a video or engage with a playable ad in exchange for a reward within the app.

For example, mobile game players will eventually “die” upon reaching a critical point. The users are disappointed they did not complete the level, and wish they could continue playing instead of starting over from the beginning.


Coins in Slowly Web mode ?

While it has the Buy Coins feature, it does NOT have the Free Coins, buy 1 coin item, at this time (May 28, 2020).

This is likely due to Google Ads not approving the Web client as it's not a mobile device and not running their usual location services and Google Framework.

It's one of the few missing features in the otherwise VERY Functional Web Mode – my recommendation for comfortably using Slowly and producing better quality letters with less fatigue.


Ideal Setups for Efficient work and Coin Collection :

a. Laptop (or PC) plus mobile device :

For the serious Coin collector (a Stamp collector looking for free funds), the Real McCoy, the power set up is :

  • a PC or laptop running Slowly Web, for comfortable read and write long letters.
  • a mobile device, either a phone or a tablet, kept at the side.
  • Web mode for Real Work, while...
  • the phone has Slowly loaded, leaving it at the Profile tab.
  • an a Timer set to 15 minutes, so you get a Buzz warning when it's time to grab the phone and push those buttons for another free coin.

With this arrangement, which is what I am using, you can easily get 4 coins per hour while working at your desk or reading in sofa or in bed even.

b. Two mobile devices :

Don't have a laptop or spare PC to use? Well, you could still benefit from having two devices.

  • your normal, fancy phone for normal use, apps, music, etc.
  • and an older, spare cell phone which is able to run Slowly.

Having the second, older phone keeping the Slowly Coins Chase running frees your main device for whichever users you fancy at the moment.

This is also a lot easier to switch drop one when the Times buzzes, open the video ad, play it. Wait for it to end, then switch to the Timer and restart it. Back to work until the next buzz in 15 minutes.


Troubleshooting – No Ads, No Videos ?

Claudia, at Reddit posted a new Topic saying she was getting frequent “N/A” results when trying to get coins.

I can't seem to purchase coins because I've had issues with using my card on the Google play store for a long time now. Left with no choice, I resorted to gathering coins which I learned on here was possible, thanks to Yann.

Unfortunately, I've been having problems collecting coins because N/A always shows up. I woke up this morning to start another round of coin collection, only to figure out I couldn't watch an AD in exchange for one coin.

This has been happening for two days now as I only started gathering coins four days ago.

This is important — can help others too. There are TWO stages of Fixing possible here, and I am explaining a simpler, less radical method, first.

Followed by the Reset Advertising IDs.


Stage 1 — Videos not appearing — “Loading....”

Sometimes it seems that the “Loading...” message stays on for a long time, and we have to be paying attention to the phone, waiting to get the Play Video button, once Slowly received a server response.

In some cases, it will retrieve an ad to play. If it is taking too long, *I have done a Memory Cleaning to fix the problem*. Steps involved :

  1. Exit Slowly, so that we can free any memory (RAM) it is currently using.
  2. Once out of it, we can run a Cleaner program. That will look for any RAM that was in use by the apps; and that can now be freed up.

I have used a Cleaner app that came included with my phone, and works well. You can see a good review of Ten Best Cleaning Apps for Android here.

They mention the CCleaner app in #2 in the list — and I have used the Windows programme for years now, so this is a good one to try.

The phone cleaning app not only does wonders in Android but also in Windows 10 PCs and macOS. You can remove junk, clean your phone’s RAM, and reclaim more space using CCleaner.

If you already have one installed on your mobile, use that. This typically frees up from 400 to 800 MB of RAM (!!) when I need to use it — a HUGE amount, and the ads will work perfectly afterwards. So, try this first...


Stage 2 — Reset Advertising ID, getting rid of pesky “N/A”

N/A might have meant – no ad, no coin. :P

The N/A is no available ad to be displayed to you — based in your device's location, time of the day and what advertisers are willing to pay for.

Is there a way to solve or avoid that ? Yes — Got it.

A user at Reddit posted in another thread, that you can RESET your Google Advertising ID; from then on, you appear as a brand new, untapped customer — and in my experience, this will bring new ads forward.

I just reset mine yesterday after getting a string of 3 or so N/A results. After reset, ads worked normally again.


Reset Advertising ID — Android Phones

  1. Open Google Settings on your Android device by tapping on menu and then on Google Settings once all apps are...
  2. Locate and tap on the Ads menu under Services.
  3. Tap on “reset advertising ID” on the new page. The page lists the current advertising ID on the same page.
  4. Confirm the reset when the confirmation prompt is displayed. Once you reset the advertising ID, a new ID is...
  5. Bonus Option: You can Opt-out of interest-based ads as well on the same page.

This tells apps not to use the advertising ID. But it might reduce the number of available ads. Opting out gives you more privacy, at the costs of less targeted ads, or no ads being available sometimes possibly.

Or visit and see the original source, at Ghacks.net


Reset Advertising ID — Apple iOS Phones and Tablets

And this is a NEW section, courtesy of bajaja at Reddit, who provided his experience in a comment :

I have an addition for you, for IOS users. For me it is a question of ads/no ads:

With Limit Ad Tracking turned off, no ads, only N/A. Reset Advertising Identifier doesn't help. On the other hand, with Location-Based Apple Ads turned off, the ads are there.

So the iOS users recommendation is clear — Turn OFF Location-Based Apple Ads. From Apple's own View Your Advertising Preferences :

Opt Out of Ads Targeted Based on Your Location

On your iOS or iPadOS device, you can opt out of receiving location-based advertising by going to Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System Services and turning off Location-Based Apple Ads.

New and awesome Feature added May 2020

This morning was an exciting time for active Slowly users, those of us who visit and read, write in the Reddit sub for SlowlyApp found a new post — announcing a radical, lovely, awesome new feature.

The original Poster there only uploaded a screencap from his Mobile — but it was clear what it was.

Time Machine

Get 1 stamp from Special Days and Series that you have Missed. Check the Full Listing here.

This was great — and many of us got into commenting, Up voting, shopping for these newly available and RARE stamps. OMG!!! :)

38 Upvotes, and 39 Comments in the Topic, 13 hours after posted. For a small Sub like ours, those are Very Good numbers!


And Comment we did.

The following text in this page is a lightly edited collection of my (Yann2) comments posted in the topic. Plus, on Twitter also.

#1 : Yo you all

—– Up Vote this nice Friend who brought us the exciting news!

Bought one stamp — and got the wonderful St George's Day stamp. :) Just hoping I can avoid the Easter Eggs, had enough of them, too specific. Gotta chase the ads and the coins, now we have a Target to use them. :P

Edit —– Crossposted on TWITTER. Edit 2 : And I just blew my entire balance, 2 coins left, lol.... Got a lot of nice ones. Thankfully ONE Easter Egg only.


Time Machine Banner at Slowly WEB mode

We had been talking and excitedly buying as many stamps as our coin purses allowed. At first, it was unclear which stamps were included, but there's a Full List webpage now.

#2 There is a big number of stamps

...including some nice time limited stamp sets : [Click on links to see screencaps of stamps and sets]

And numerous, previously restricted stamps, sold only in certain countries.

Took some snapshots on the phone, to document this. The Feature is working in Slowly Web mode too.

An exciting new idea, thanks Slowly Team! :)


#3 Re: a comment about the RARE Hello Kitty

...stamp sets from 2019 (45th Anniversary, only issued in some Asian countries)

Those Hello Kitty sets are hard, I am not even counting on getting them.

But — if we send a suggestion in, they might get added to the Time Machine as well – as they fit the profile.

  • time limited
  • special editions, sometime country specific
  • and no longer available.

And I did send in a suggestion, via Twitter post to Slowly Team.


#4 Re: Rare Early Bird Stamp – and the user who spent 800 coins

...but was so happy, he GOT IT. :)

This was a nice morale booster – to let people know that yes, you CAN get that special stamp you wanted. Just keep trying, spend some coins, watch the Slowly short video ads, and they add up. I am back to 20, after a full balance blowout this morning!


#5 Re: stamps as a funding model

...to keep the company alive and running :

Nice post, good thoughts — I think the way they are funding the company, and paying the costs to maintain service is pretty unobtrusive. I don't mind it at all.

It will give you stamps that are Unique for your collection — but meaning that you own them outright, received or bought a copy in the past.

Received in the mail stamps, this will not apply – I bought 11 of them this morning (now collecting coins for more) and the very first one was St George's Day, a beautiful stamp.

That now I own and can send to pen pals; although I had it before, received from others.

It works in this sense identically to the World Explorer feature.

Nice post, good thoughts — I think the way they are funding the company, and paying the costs to maintain service is pretty unobtrusive. I don't mind it at all.

A single coin costs 2 Cents of a Canadian Dollar, my local currency, if bought in 500 coin pack. A full 6 stamps set, 100 coins regular, is $2 CAD a pretty reasonable amount. [a coffee at a lousy place, plus tax, costs that here]

And I have bought coins before, and even after the free ones are around.


#6 : How to see a LARGER image of ANY stamp?

Easy, follow this.

  • point at the desired stamp.
  • Right Click, choose View Image.

  • The image loads in the Browser. The Location bar will be show something like the URL below.
  • https://cdn.getslowly.com/assets/images/stamp-sm/early-bird.png
  • But — it's SMALL, eh ? We can grab a LARGER image.
  • Edit the URL on the Browser address – remove the “-sm” after the “stamp” word.
  • So now it is https://cdn.getslowly.com/assets/images/stamp/early-bird.png

  • Done? Hit Enter, or Select REFRESH page or press F5 in a laptop. :)

Like it? Me too. :D


And Some Reflections about Stamp Collecting :

#7 Re: Draculalien was happy with this

... having suggested it before. :)

They are thoughtful, and continuously work in improving the app.

With people getting HUGE stamp collections, it's coming to a point where there's not much left for them – and that kills the joy.

This does a great deal to help.

And I truly believe that stamp collecting works best if taken Slowly – dig and enjoy each new incoming stamp, each new little one you buy from World Explorer.

Get a set and use it with penpals, I do that, sequentially — one by one, with my reply letters, until they have the complete set.

Too many new stamps and sets, you lose that magic a bit; happened to me. Some sets from Christmas Store Sale are still not in normal use for me.

Never mind the MANY new country ones I got more recently.

Slowly is Definitively BETTER for stamp collecting.


#8 Re: a response to a New Slowly user

... and budding stamps collector.

Welcome to the Fold, friend. Enjoy, and... Take it Slowly. :)

Honestly, I had the most fun when I was receiving a new stamp in a letter and it was such a High. And saving, collecting free coins by watching the video ads.

Until you can purchase a stamp, or better yet – a whole set, always a better deal, 6 stamps for 100 SlowlyBucks. :P

We can get turbo into collecting but — I really think it's not the same (happened to me, and I plan to write a blog about it)

Many heavy collectors are hitting the wall, as they are over 400 stamps – and not much else is available. So – take it easy and ENJOY it, as it's great fun. :)

Says me, with 385 stamps on the fold, including the 11 new ones I just blew my whole coin balance on, the Time Machine new feature is a boom and an addiction, lol.... :)

But what I wrote above is, honest to God, what I really believe in.
