    Stories starting over/going through major edits.

    I've been in that situation for quite a while. However, when I realized that I wanted to do things over since new ideas and a more rigid style is coming up, I was on the point of no return. I was at around 200k+ words written in due to the tremendous drive I had. I wanted to rewrite my old...

    Magic creation should be bound by rules. They need an appropriate amount of time and testing. A proportional cost to effectiveness ratio. They should never be some sort of miracle where 'Oh, I just created a new magic out of my imagination'. Even magic creation as a skill in lit rpg stories...

    Face it or not, there will always be a genre that will hit the taste of the readers. And in most cases, if some comes across a story with a genre they hate, they'll rate it low even without reading it. Frankly, it's better to get immune to ratings as fast as possible. Get used to it.

    Announcement Section and In-chapter polls

    Aside from Details, Glossary, and Statistics tab for each series, I suggest adding an Announcements tab. The main reason is to keep the readers up-to-date on the status of the series without getting mixed up with the chapters. This way, whenever an author is met with a problem in real life...

    what is the best time to upload
