1. Re: How to see where your story is on any lists?

      Easiest way is Author Premium, unfortunately. The General stats page tells you where your traffic's coming from, which is immensely useful for figuring out demographics and what your readers were looking (...)

    2. Re: Every review for my fiction has been downvoted.

      It happens. Someone seems to have downvoted a bunch of reviews on my book, I think the positive ones? It doesn't have much of an impact, I don't think.

    3. Re: If your novel got turned into a movie/series/anime?

      I'd want my stories to be adapted into video games. I've always wanted the opportunity to curate an experience and do a lot of writing for side quests and side stories and all those things you can do in (...)

    4. Re: Is Royal Road Infected?

      Royal Road runs bad ads from time to time, it's the nature of modern ad aggregates.  Same thing happened to me a while back, went away when I started blocking ads again after I'd stopped to support (...)

    5. Re: How do you think Open Ai will change the webnovel scene?

      Wing already said you're not supposed to post AI writing on RR, so it's really interesting seeing folks say they're gonna use AI but not disclose it. Wonder how that's going to be handled. Either (...)

    6. Re: How do you think Open Ai will change the webnovel scene?

      Lazy hack writers will use AI to crank out stories as quickly as possible, but I don't think they'll see much out of it. Eventually people will grow sick of it and move onto outsider art that isn't (...)

    7. Re: The Fancy Pants Kids of RoyalRoad

      The closest I ever got to watching Monty Python was someone recreating a scene from it in MMD using Touhou characters.

    8. Re: What amount of views is good?

      I have no clue what I'm doing. I've got well over twenty chapters. My book started about 4-5 months ago and my average views are like 140. Chapter 1 is over five hundred views and current chapter is at (...)

    9. Re: The most important thing I learned regarding serial writing versus book writing for RoyalRoad

      I'm writing books.  If I'm not satisfied with my own work, why even bother making it?

    10. Re: What amount of views is good?

      If the numbers are good, they're good. Your numbers are good. Quit worrying about it.

    11. Re: AI Art and Stories Are Not Copyrightable

      Why in god's name are people trying to justify the use of AI on a site meant to be used for fun and personal enjoyment. I would imagine because they derive fun and personal enjoyment from its use (...)

    12. Re: What animal is better than a Duck?

      Literally all animal. Ducks aren't even the best waterfowl. They aren't even good waterfowl.

    13. Re: AI Art and Stories Are Not Copyrightable

      Pay your artists, kids. If you have any skill, you have nothing to worry about. If you don't, then learn it, or be replaced by automation. Just like the rest of us. We're on Royal Road. This is (...)

    14. Re: AI Art and Stories Are Not Copyrightable

      Man a lot of people in this thread just *cannot* write their own damn books, huh? Pay your artists, kids.

    15. Re: The Fancy Pants Kids of RoyalRoad

      Merry Christmas to everyone except the folks who cheat on Writathons with AI or pre-written text.

    16. Re: ChatGPT in works?

      Write your own novel.

    17. Re: AI has no place on Royal Road.

      Art is not a competition. AI generated content is not art.

    18. AI has no place on Royal Road.

      Hello. I've been on Royal Road for two years now, been publishing my works online for three years now and been writing seriously for five entire years. Over the years, I have worked on three major (...)

    19. Re: Why Didn't Epic Just Finish UT4?

      Because it wouldn't have done well and would've split attention in the studio from a game doing well to a game that wouldn't be doing well.

    20. Re: Ethically, if you're using AI, your creation should be labelled as such

      I'm not going to debate, I'm just going to say: Support and consume work made by real human beings. An AI will not insert your own anecdotes or beliefs or soul or anything of yours into its writing. (...)
