What if you had to choose an amount of gems to pay each time you voted. When the votes are tallied, the submission with the most gems wins. This would make it so that if you really liked a submission, you could show that.
Can you add like a color dot thingy next to the genres, like purple for sci-fi and green for fantasy that you already have. Just a small icon thingy to make it more easy on the dropdown Discover list.
Just a suggestion
When there is more than, say five drafts submitted per story, we should have the choice of voting TWICE. It is extremely difficult choosing only ONE, when there may be another draft that is just as good.
I recently got the chance to vote for NINE drafts and unbelievably most, if not all of them, were good. Only having ONE vote doesn't do the story justice, in my opinion.
I'd rather have stuff like story challenges delivered through the notification system (clogged though it is) rather than via email. An option allowing the selection of either or both of these would be pretty nifty.
In fact, the same option for each category of thing that appears (including disabling messages about that category entirely) would be pretty nice.
I think that it could be a good idea to give incentives to writers to finish the stories that are already published instead of starting numerous new ones. A lot of great stuff gets forgotten. It would be great if we could sort stories by the number of chapters written.
I get it. Edit within one hour. But on my first story this was not clear. I had to learn the hard way, and my story suffers from one word that needs deleting. Yes, I could have edited and perfected and then copy/pasted my story into your site, but that doesn't seem to be the goal. The goal is to write. But I should be able to edit small mistakes. Even a method or code that requires the approval of anyone writing further chapters of the story would be great.
I pushed a story, went to an appointment, then noticed a grammatical mistake in one sentence. It is forever entombed and embarrassing.
