I thought you meant the forum as a whole for a good minute and was writing a response
I guess this can be seen as leftovers from when Tony brought the basic forum structuring style over from nuf.
Since there are more convenient options ways to discuss novels this place is pretty dead. Although it can be used for fanart, theories, discussion about the novel as a whole and stuff
So maybe use it as a bookclub? Something new in trending gets an automatic discussion post to talk about the new things?
It can't just be for everyone to post to because people are just going to recommend and try to foster discussion on their own work.
Imagine your readers starting a thread for your story and discussing new releases there. Hah. Peak authoring. You know you made it at that moment, kek. People rarely comment under chapters or get into discussion under those that doesn't include only author answering
Yea, imagine that. Seems to me there are discords or other places people use. It would be to be like, the most popular thing on the site for me want to post a discussion on a story here. It would feel weird otherwise. "Hey guys, here's a small story I found. Let's talk about it!"
