Hi everyone,  Over the past few days, we've become aware of a minor rule violation by a relatively large number of users in a discord group called ‘Secret Mafia’. The rule violations were as follows: Rule 1: “Campaigns encouraging others to upvote or downvote reviews, whether positive or negative are forbidden.” Despite this rule, authors were sharing their favorite reviews on their novels in an effort to encourage people to upvote the reviews they deemed favorable for their story, or, to upvote the reviews they wrote for someone else in that very same group This caused those manipulated ..read more

However, please note that this is a dynamic policy and as the world around us changes, we are going to adapt to it rather than fight it.  On one side ..read more

On May 11th we updated how the fiction rank number is displayed on the author dashboard and on individual fiction dashboards. By doing that authors could see where their fiction was ranked in a range, rather than the specific number. As an example, a fiction ranked at #321 would see the rank as 251-500. This was to steer away from a competitive element on the platform and to promote a culture that focuses less on arbitrary numbers that are outside of the author's direct control and did not sufficiently provide information on how well a story is doing, as the position in the ranking is highly i ..read more
