Has anyone else been reading a story and finishing a chapter when all of the sudden at the end of the chapter it says that the author added a waiting period of a certain amount of hours until you can continue reading the story?? And if you don’t want to wait you have to pay gems to continue reading?? I personally find this ridiculous. This app has become all about gems. I get adding gem choices to stories but a wait period that you have to pay to get out of?? That’s ridiculous in my opinion. I understand authors use the app as a source of income and I love to support them!! But adding a wait period is just frustrating to me. How am I supposed to support them if I have to wait 11 hours to read another episode?? And why would I even want to support an author that wants to make me wait 11 hours to read their story or be forced to pay gems to keep reading. I feel like I shouldn’t have to pay gems just to read a chapter, that’s what passes are for. This app has changed so much and has become so centered around gems and them making money. Sometimes I’m tempted to stop using it.
(EDIT: This story is already fully released and has been for months. This is NOT the early release option. It is only letting me read 2 chapters at a time every 11 hours unless I pay gems)
