    1. Re: The search for the highest level account.

      Holy cow he's almost level 30


    2. Re: Thread 2: electric boogaloo

      This thread has almost as many ports as views. That's amazing. 


    3. Re: Reviews: chapters read is important, amazon has star system right

      I think they just need to do away with the quick review system.  If someone is going to rate a story, they should at least be required to leave a few lines of feedback so both the author and other readers (...)


    4. Re: Reviews: chapters read is important, amazon has star system right

      Does it work based on current bookmark?   Yes. I see very little reason to go out of my way to ask the users to fill in an extra field when it's already tracked in a fairly straightforward manner, (...)


    5. Re: Reviews: chapters read is important, amazon has star system right

      The review thing is already a feature albeit it cannot be applied to older reviews. The ability to not backtrack your reader progress when you open an older chapter is currently in Beta for premium (...)


    6. Re: [Request] Rollback the new bookmarks url and new follow list button

      It was needed because it was confusing; we've been frequently asked about where people can find their follows since they overlooked it as bookmarks, and also often asked why it was called as such when (...)


    7. Re: RR auto formating

      It's a question of line breaks and paragprahs. RR follows the same formatting as Microsoft Word: line breaks have no spacing, but paragraphs do! Normally you create line breaks with SHIFT+ENTER while (...)


    8. Re: Litrpg Exp

      You can always do something like next_level_exp = level * 10 * 1.05^level That would be something like 10 22 35 and so on. It's exponential but the curve isn't too steep. Even at level 20 you are (...)


    9. Re: Subscription E-mails have stopped

      My case is similar, the emails are going directly to the spam folder. What we can do about that is very limited. I believe it will fix itself over time if you keep moving emails into your inbox from (...)


    10. Re: On The Subject of Ratings

      I always believe we should left the 1-5/1-10 rating scale system to be used only by professional critic and use simple like/dislike button for a peasant like me... Rating a product objectively is hard, (...)


    11. Re: On The Subject of Ratings

      Not for me to say, but I don't see it as being particularly difficult.  It'd probably be a bit of infrastructure work though, since RR doesn't already use custom reading lists. For reference, https://www.novelupdates.com/recommendation-lists/?st=1&ni=18721&h=1 (...)


    12. Re: On The Subject of Ratings

      The problem with a curator system is that any group of people given an official badge of curatorship by us will be considered as members of the Royal Road staff. Therefore, any low opinion/review from (...)


    13. Re: On The Subject of Ratings

      A way to take off some of the edge of the rating system without redoing everything would be to use collaborative filtering I think. It's a fairly expensive thing to develop and maintain, but it'd allow (...)


    14. Re: On The Subject of Ratings

      I'll reply from a phone so I'll skip the quoting and will just refer to the points as numbers, sorry! For #2, I have no idea what system Webtoon uses internally for their chapters w/r to how the likes (...)


    15. Re: On The Subject of Ratings

      Honestly, a curator system would be a pretty awesome thing now that I look at it.  The problem with a curator system is that any group of people given an official badge of curatorship by us will be (...)


    16. Re: On The Subject of Ratings

      I think people are missing the forest for the trees here. I could reiterate how broken the review system is, but there's something much more important going on. And it's something very very sad. It's not (...)


    17. Re: On The Subject of Ratings

      Oh boy. Here we go again. Yes I did just say that - I totally do this song and dance every 1-3 months. First I need to point out that you've enjoyed making this post faaaaaaaaar too much, Senescent (...)


    18. Re: Unable to delete account

      I'll fix it today, will need a couple hours to fix this and roll out a fix.


    19. Re: ROYAL ROAD APP?

      Or let authors monetize ads, win-win. There is nothing to  win there, the average author wouldn't earn more than $5 a year. It's not a thing because it's not worth anyone's time. If we add direct (...)


    20. Re: Why do I need 2 factor here?

      As a reader, yes, that's about the worst that could happen. Or they use your account for advertising websites which will get it permabanned. Authors have far more at stake, especially the ones who do (...)
