It can reach top 100, but it will stay there and won’t go further on the app, and the max you can see on the portal is 101 or N/A which means that the story is queued for the review. In reality, the true rank of the story can be even the top 10 (if gems and reads are good enough for that), but you won’t see it until the story will get a review.

Hey Georgia!

Just to note, this is my first comment in the Episode Forum area so I’m kind of nervous :see_no_evil:
My story Blueprint had a place amongst the winners of the contest and I wouldn’t consider myself a “big author”.

I had one other story published and it had 20k reads at the time. Whilst my entry had 35k reads.

And to be honest reading all these comments about the winners not being fair made me feel downhearted. It really is disheartening that everyone thinks that way.

I too understand the frustration of not seeing my favourite entries up there, like the Passenger by Ely, Stormbreaker by Arch and Danse Macabre by Agatya. Quite frankly, I was shocked too. As everyone would behave when they don’t see their favourite story win. It’s purely subjective.

Everyone who talks about smaller authors not getting recognition is wrong because I was a small author with around 50k reads across my two published stories.

Personally, I think Episode should consider making these contests exclusive to smaller authors simply to give them the chance of some exposure.

Again, congratulations to the amazing entries that I have the privilege of sharing the shelf with. But mostly I’m thankful for all the lovely authors, of fantastic entries, that I have befriended along this contest journey.

Have a great day to anyone who’s reading this!

Escritbyace04 I think everyone is free to express their feelings, my publication was not marked, I clarify it, for me it was disappointing I never said that those who won did not make an effort, those were not my words if not yours. I think we all work a lot, in my case I lost a lot of time that I could dedicate to other more important things, that’s what we risk participating in these contests, let’s leave it in the hands of the great authors who do their work. very well and also those writers who participate and work on the episode, the little authors can continue to strive with our little stories, one day we can be like them. But I know that in my personal case these contests are not for me. There are many applications where you can do many stories and they give you a certain amount of money for them, however I choose Episode because I like it a lot. When you make a comment or criticize, you always do it wanting them to improve. You don’t do it to destroy.
