    AI Covers

    Had to do some weird ML/AI stuff for work and we arrived at the idea of generated covers. And luckily the internet has already done it: https://neuralblender.com/ Be amazed of my new cover (The Lone Macaw): So time to go over the trending list (they are clearly doing something wrong...

    For those authors with a fear of failure

    There often are (especially newer) authors who have problems writing and publishing because they fear possible failures and the readers' reaction. So for those, just look at this: This is Amazon, a multi-billion company buying advertisements from the other multi-billion company youtube/google...

    Featured reviews

    We had it as part of other rating system discussion and the like, but now here as its own thread to not go under in all the usual quarrels. Instead of trying to force out all the "negativity" (which will never work anyway), I would argue, that it's better to encourage positive behavior. Hence...

    Resolved Activity list erroneous

    Unpopular opinion

    on people using "Unpopular opinion" to start a topic most people would agree with or at least see the point of. It feels like people trying to beg for popularity, waiting for others to tell them how right they are. Like those girls taking 100 pictures of themselves, picking the best, adding...

    Resolved Gained readers

    Or "possible bug". Can't say it 100% for certain, because of the different "starts of the day". But with my story in hiatus due to work, it seems to me like "a reader unfollowing a story" counts towards gained readers. Went down by 1, but I have 1 reader gained in the graph. Could also be a...
