So… I filed a support ticket asking why my story never made it on the new user stories when I’ve seen instagram ads make it on the new user stories right? And my story followed the guidelines too… Aka grammar and punctuation etc…
But these stories with poor grammar and punctuation made it instead of my story. I don’t mean to sound like a jelous brat at all but when I filed the support ticket… What I got back was this:

Thanks for writing in!
In order for us to consider featuring your story, it must abide by our rules and guidelines. Some quick ones to remember are:
Your story must be at least 3 chapters long
Each chapter of your story must have at least 400 lines of dialogue
You must ensure that your story contains correct grammar and spelling
Be creative! Submit a story that is really unique, that makes us say “WOW!” in the first 20 lines
We like stories that have lots of meaningful choices that feel like they really make a difference
Remember, your story doesn’t necessarily have to be finished when you submit it - it just needs to show great promise and development.
For now, there isn’t an exact formula for getting your story featured. Many factors are considered including the aforementioned rules provided. When we see that a story is climbing up in the ranks in the User Stories section or has become popular, sometimes our team will reach out to this author and possibly feature them in our app.
We would recommend promoting your story on social media as much as you can and in the forums and this will help get the word out about your story.
Good luck and happy writing!
But the description of the new user stories is that episode has not reviewed any of the content of the story! This shelf is SUPPOSED to help new authors get noticed right?
Well shouldn’t all new author stories get put on the shelf instead of just advertisements for social media? I am geniuinely confused about this.
