    1. Re: Cover comparison...

      The white one in the signature stands out the best for me.  (With maybe just the title moved above the portal.) Both dark ones are too busy and don't draw the eye to the portal as well as the white one.


    2. Re: January Thread - Promote your Story

      https://i.ibb.co/rcgb16T/Rising-Wind-Cover-Web.png Kal has trained to enforce the rules and maintain the peace in the Governance. The system he serves clamps down on anyone who steps out of line, particularly (...)


    3. Re: offering comments and occasional reviews for fun

      Hey, I have a fantasy series with a slow build and character focus. Check it out to see if it's up your alley. Part One Part Two


    4. Re: Requesting feedback on my work in exchange for a review of one of your works!

      I love mythology. What kind of feedback are you looking for? A high level evaluation focused on the few questions you brought up, or a more in-depth look into both the story and the writing? I've been (...)


    5. Re: Looking for an Epic Fantasy that's under the radar!

      Hi, I've got a high fantasy series that focus on character drama. You can check out the first book here.


    6. Re: Paladin MC

      I'm not aware of any RR stories, but Delight Games (free app on Android/iOS) have a pretty nice story called Paladins.


    7. Re: inserting pictures in my posts doesn't seem to work for me

      You need the direct link. One that ends with .jpeg or .png and opens the image only. (No website frame around it.) Check the share or link option in the place where you hosted it and look for direct (...)


    8. Re: How to describe facial gestures and emotions without sounding bland and repetitive

      A good resource for that kind of thing is: https://writershelpingwriters.net/2010/10/emotion-thesaurus-entry-collection-samples/ It's essentially a collection of expressions and descriptions tied to emotions. (...)


    9. Re: Cover Page Uploading

      Haven't encountered that particular issue with covers. Maybe make sure the image is jpeg and not png, and try a different browser? That's pretty much all I can think of. If it doesn't work, then support (...)


    10. Re: Looking for some critique on my novel.

      ... Code doesn't crackle, you're right, but hardware does, especially when the computer needs to boot large files... I think your hard-drive might be dying. Or the whole machine is on fire. Proper (...)

    12. Re: Weird reading pattern

      Maybe people bookmark the last chapter they read and keep opening it to check for new releases? I've noticed a similar pattern for a few of my chapters too, and that's the only thing I can think of.


    13. Re: How does RR decide which tags to be included or added in the website?

      Also, something that might help. Unlike most other writing sites, RR has an advanced search feature that works pretty well for finding even the most obscure story themes as long as they mentioned in (...)


    14. Re: How does RR decide which tags to be included or added in the website?

      Anyone coming from Wattpad can tell you about the problems with having too many tags. Truth is, most of those are niche and adding them would not help the majority of readers. Keeping the tags/genres (...)


    15. Re: The image uploading on this site is messed up, for me at least. Does anyone else also have this problem?

      I get the same issue.  Reducing the dimensions of the image helps, but even then I have to sometimes  reupload it a few times before it scales properly.


    16. Re: Narrating Various Web Novels from RR (List and current Releases)

      Damn, that's so cool. You do a really good job.


    17. Re: Lower views than usual

      Just give it a few days and it should go back to normal. And keep writing. The spotlight isn't everything ;)


    18. Re: Lower views than usual

      Everybody is binge-reading articles about the elections instead, maybe? And yes, I've noticed a drop as well. It's also around midterm season for most students, so that might be it as well.
