    1. Re: Ratings should be public

      I don’t know if I’ve ever heard a request for making the rating distribution public, pretty interesting idea. Usually people just ask for ratings to not be anonymous etc. I think all that info is available (...)


    2. Re: Ratings should be public

      I think one issue that was brought up about making the ratings public is that it would drastically reduce the number of ratings altogether and not just the troll/unwarranted ratings. People like anonymity, (...)


    3. Re: Ratings should be public

      I don’t know if I’ve ever heard a request for making the rating distribution public, pretty interesting idea. Usually people just ask for ratings to not be anonymous etc. I think all that info is available (...)


    4. Re: Looking for excellent fantasy progression stories! Similar to The Primal Hunter, Azarinth Hunter, and The (...)

      I can also second He Who Fights with Monsters, the MC is great, it's a wild ride and probably my favorite LitRPG series on Royal Road. Do yourself a favor and give it a try--most of the negative reviews (...)


    5. Re: To all authors: don't give up if you're demotivated. Press on, rewrite, or start a new story. Whatever it (...)

      MelasD is wholesome king of RR, confirmed. Now my attempt at wholesome: So many stories never get the attention they deserve. Believe in your stories even when it feels like nobody else ever will. (...)


    6. Re: Royalroad is becoming like webnovel (in terms of quality of fiction)

      I haven't noticed a decline in quality. A lot of new favorites popped up ~5-6 months ago (during the write-a-thon), like Virtuous Sons, Path of Ascension, and Mark of the Fool, and I'd still consider that (...)


    7. Re: Novel where the mc is the mysteries Power in the shadows.

      Not on RR, but Kings Dark Tidings series sounds like exactly what you want. The MC is a super sharp human weapon trained from birth to be a master assassin. He plays every role imaginable simultaneously, (...)


    8. Re: Negative reviews being censored?

      The fact is that some authors actually do quit after receiving extremely negative/cruel reviews that tear their story apart. Royal Road wants to discourage people from writing reviews that make authors (...)


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

      I think in general we can all agree that stealing art is bad. Using stolen art for a non-commercial work is not a great choice, but it kinda falls into the bin of, "everyone else is doing it, why can't (...)


    10. Re: Forgot the title. In the book the MC made a huge tattoo on his back

      Second Re:Monarch. To jog your memory more, the MC has a limited time loop power. He follows his friend to the city she comes from to continue his study of magic and foster diplomatic ties between her (...)


    11. Re: Thoughts on Grammerly?

      I strongly dislike Grammarly. Why? I've tested it against prose that is really, really flawed (i.e. full of errors like tense changes, missing punctuation...) and it was unable to catch glaring errors. (...)


    12. Re: High Quality Bromance Stories?

      My fic is in my signature and I think might be what you're looking for -- the central focus is the complex relationship/friendship between the two most important characters, a death mage (the MC) and a (...)


    13. Re: Is prioritizing upload consistency on this site important?

      Consistency is very important in my experience. Nothing is worse than following a story only to see it go into hiatus or be sporadically updated. It makes it feel like the story might never be finished. (...)


    14. Re: Length of the Last Chapter You Wrote And Or Longest Written?

      Holy cow, that's a long chapter. I think my longest chapter is like 3700 words or something. :O Do you just prefer longer chapter lengths? I usually try to keep mine shorter, i.e. between 2-3k. I've heard (...)


    15. Re: Fictions where MC is Person of Color

      https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/28307/the-zombie-knight-saga The Zombie Knight Saga is excellent; MC is black. The fact that he is black is engaged in the text (it isn't a random detail that become (...)


    16. Re: How long do you spend writing a chapter?

      For me I'd probably budget 4-5 hrs for a 2-2.5k chapter, including editing. Sometimes more, sometimes less. If the chapter needs to be done in 2 hrs for patrons and nothing is written, I can usually find (...)


    17. Re: Am I That Bad? (Help for a new RR writer)

      Yeah, you're absolutely right. I had a hard time with tenses. I'm not a native speaker, so it's a lot harder for me... anyway, thanks for the advice. I'll start to read other people and leave reviews. (...)


    18. Re: Am I That Bad? (Help for a new RR writer)

      You're right, I may be mixing the points of view way too much. My main purpose with that is to show the MC's perspective, but yeah, it's messy sometimes (But I think it's not that bad of an idea if done (...)


    19. Re: storys with men loving men?

      You can try my story, linked in the signature. The entire series follows the complicated relationship of two men, an extremely OP necromancer and a sovereign who can see a minute into the future, read (...)


    20. Re: Xianxia with protagonist strong from the start

      A Will Eternal perhaps? MC is just face-slappingly good at everything from the beginning and rascals his way to the apex. It's a popular Xianxia by Er Gen (same author as I Shall Seal the Heavens). I kind (...)
