Can't Incorporate Gem Choices


Yesterday, I started writing the first episode of my new story. I wanted to add a gem choice into my episode, but it will not let me. I used my phone to see the mobile creation, and the choice didn’t show up as a gem choice.


In order to use gem you would have to label the choice, it won’t appear on the app but if your writing on the desktop it will appear.

For Ex:
CHAR (animation)
Choice (shopping) Name the choice whatever you want.
“Mall” {
} "Put where you’re going and the part that goes with it.
Then continue on with your story.

I better understanding for you:

I hope this helps!


I don’t think the code is supposed to be like that because you didn’t add to the choice that you wanted to be a gem choice. But thanks though.


Yes I did and you’re welcome! :two_hearts:
The barracks around GEMS means it’s a gem choice. Trust me it works!


Okay. The code didn’t work for me. This is what I have:

choice (African_Princess)
“African Princess”{
RAIN (talk_shrug)
Wearing this dress shows that I’m embracing my ancestry.

I think I’m gonna go with this one tonight.
RAIN (talk_preen)
This dress is really calming to me.

This dress will look good on me. It really matches my skin tone.

you forgot to add < GEMS > (but without any space between the word GEMS and > or <)
< GEMS >“African Princess”


@Briana_M yes you did it right. Just follow what @nemimutt said💕 but don’t forget to capitalize GEMS


Okay thank you. I got it!


Glad I could help


Does gem choices give the story maker gems?




No it doesn’t.


No, it doesn’t. It’s just an alternative to getting put in the writers payments, so instead of trying to get 500,000 reads on stories people will have to use their gems in your story and once you get 100,000 gems then you’ll be able to be in the writers payments


@brvnda is correct. You do NOT get gems for including gem choices in your story.
You need to get 100k gem chapter reads (it counts as long as someone reads your chapter. They don’t need to pay for a choice) in 60 days to qualify for the payment program.
