How difficult would it be for episode to use this spot right here
To promote community stories?
I read a looooong time ago about a community story shelf on the front page I have never seen. Since episode is basically requiring community stories to have gems to be recognized or trend, why not offer at least one front page spot to let them shine,
It could update every day and high light both trending stories and approved stories regardless of their ranking as long as they have gems.
If you agree like and show support.
