    1. Re: What was everyone's first novel they read on their own?

      I can't remember, I was like 9. Though I guess it might have been Roger Zelazny's Changeling. Maybe. Or maybe one of the Harry Potter books but I'm not sure.


    2. Re: That one word you swear should be spelled differently.

      Breakfast. I don't know why, but every time I see it I think it should be spelled differently but it isn't. My brain just glitches on it. :drakansweat: It'd called breakfast because you are (...)


    3. Re: How long has the "Others have also liked" been there?

      It's a bit of a problem that all ratings are shown wrong, everything is shown with one star less, but if you know it you can just compensate. This isn't happening for most users, so might be specific (...)


    4. Re: Sssooo…What Happened to the Beta Recommendation Feature?

      Sounds like a bug. Oops. Will get it back up in a bit.


    5. Re: On The Subject of Ratings

      I didn't talk about a linear distribution, nor would a normal distribution with a bulge in the center make sense. I agree that the distribution can legitimately be like a "U", especially in cases where (...)


    6. Re: On The Subject of Ratings

      With your story's large overall number of ratings, this anomalous difference is statistically highly significant (i.e., highly probable). It looks like (again, with a very high level of statistical significance) (...)


    7. Re: Beta Recommendation? I am Just Noticing This

      This is mostly a feedback loop though (preliminary checking prove so). Though it'd be interesting to see how it plays out . :peoeating: Yes, yes it is. I don't really see a problem with that. (...)


    8. Re: Beta Recommendation? I am Just Noticing This

      This isn't personalised. This is simply a list of the top 10 fictions with a shared reader base to the fiction you are currently viewing. No we aren't doing a wattpad :) Just wanted to add some (...)


    9. Re: Beta Recommendation? I am Just Noticing This

      Aww…crap! We are on wattpad again!  The beta feature is recommending my own book. 🤨 https://i.imgur.com/nfTKzpV.png This isn't personalised. This is simply a list of the top 10 fictions with (...)


    10. Re: On The Subject of Ratings

      Ratings as well as up- and down-votes of reviews should be reserved to actual readers. I.e., it should be necessary to spend a reasonable amount of time in the first two to three chapters, while they (...)


    11. Re: A Guide to be Successful on Royal Road (Not Clickbait)

      Something like user-created reading lists like Wattpad would be amazing, too, but there's a lot of other development priorities that are just as important and still a long way off (e.g. the app, a monetization (...)


    12. Re: A Guide to be Successful on Royal Road (Not Clickbait)

      Oh look, it's time to change all the algorithms  :DrakanLaugh: I'd like to see more weight given to writers producing quality. Maybe that means curating more stories. Or certain reviewers who prove (...)


    13. Re: Negative reviews being censored?

      Also, in particular I'm not 100% sure why this one was deleted, working on figuring it out! Will need to ask the moderator who deleted it to know what they were thinking, I personally feel like I wouldn't (...)


    14. Re: Negative reviews being censored?

      That perspective is my entire problem I suppose. It's a bit of a damned if I do, damned if I don't situation.  It's really the same with moderation tbh. We, the staff, are damned if we do and damned (...)


    15. Re: Are deleted fictions cached anywhere?

      After learning more in depth about the pains of first publishing rights, I am trying to scrub my story as much off the public internet as I can. I am however afraid that even deleted stories on Wattpad, (...)


    16. Re: You all ever feel old?

      Like. That sudden feeling of just being in an older generation. Every time I look at the forums.


    17. Re: Number Of Stories With X Or More Pages(I Was Just Surprised How Many Had 1000 Pages)

      Note that only 8 stories in the top 100 or something in page length are below 4 stars. There is some inverse causation there - successful stories are the ones that ppl keep writing. And generally, (...)


    18. Re: "Message me if you want me to remove the cover" - why?

      If they state something that makes clear they did not get permission, I fail to see how that would not make it "apparent to a reasonable person" in the view of an judge. I'm not talking about those. (...)


    19. Re: "Message me if you want me to remove the cover" - why?

      In my own defense, I did nothing of the sort. I hope you are not confusing my posts for some other user! Oops!  :drakansweat: ... sorry?


    20. Re: "Message me if you want me to remove the cover" - why?

      Whoa, aggressive! I'm sorry if I've unwittingly offended you, but how does that answer my post? I haven't made any kind of legal arguments! Calling RR a pirate site is fairly offensive, given how (...)
