I haven’t really seen any threads that exclusively discuss this topic so I hope the moderators don’t delete it.
I have seen the new survey that Jesse put out but It has very limited questions and only room for One thing we should change about Episode.
I’d like to know everyone’s honest Opinions not just about the App but about the community as I feel like our concerns are sometimes brushed over.
I decided to make a list on what Episode should focus on.
Test the updates more before releasing them as the new skin colours and speech bubbles have plenty of flaws.
Stop featuring stories that are super cliché as it honestly stops me from reading them. Especially that new It Starts with a Bra? That was honestly a dreadful idea as it is super inappropriate.
Listen to the community more. I feel as though they don’t always listen to the communities major concerns and just brush over them without weighing in on the topic. Perhaps have a thread where we can talk to administrators about our concerns instead of referring us to submit a support ticket all the time.
Stop violating their own guidelines. I believe there are a few Featured Episode own stories that violate their own Guidelines (Mainly it starts with a Bra) and while people have mentioned that on the it starts with a bra thread, The episode team have been quiet on diminishing our concerns.
QUOTE I wouldn’t even mind 1 non-romance among 3 romance releases, just give us something different.
And we could possibly see different overlays (perhaps tappable?), not just unique and expensive dresses lol
They should also implement different body types and age groups, with some new set of restrictions/guidelines. Suggested by @lamecast88
QUOTE I would love to see a 2018 / 2019 Episode Diversity Standards. Suggested by @FallenAngelNight13
QUOTE I noticed some of Episode’s ads target these type of cliche stories like pregnancy and gang and while it’s okay if they want to include them on their site, they shouldn’t highlight them through ads and they should have more diversity with stories, especially featured ones. Suggested by @Booklady1017
QUOTE we can have stories recommended to us based off stories we’ve read. Suggested by @celestiial.missy
What does everyone think about this? It bugs me so much and I understand that there are many people who feel the same way or have different opinions so I would love to see a full blown discussion here.
If anyone has any other things Episode should focus on, I will add it to the list.
I don’t have anything against the community or episode itself as I love being apart of it and writing on the app, I just feel like it could do with a change.
