I’m going to be very honest and blunt on here. Yes, I do think Episode is failing a bit as a company. It wasn’t like it was years ago when the platform first came to an existence. A lot of things has changed, and as a result of that many people throughout the Episode community do like it. I, for one, don’t like some of the changes the Episode platform has made or is making.
Racism is a very controversial topic. Not everybody can handle such a topic like that without causing drama and arguments. I don’t think they should address this topic on their platform, but I do think they should take drastic measures if someone is making racist comments, jokes, etc. In reality, we all don’t want to address this topic because it’s HIGHLY debatable and controversial.
ISWAB AND IMB are stories that should NOT have been written because of how straight forward their plots are. Let’s be real here, we don’t know what Episode’s employees do throughout the platform, so we can’t really stop them from making a story. However, I do feel like they should be consciously aware of what stories they are releasing to the app. I don’t think they are fully thinking about the consequences and the backlash that they’ll receive from the Episode community. I personally haven’t read these stories because I don’t like their plots and the direction that they are going in. “In My Bed.” That title is pretty much straight forward, and you basically know what the plot is to the story. The Episode platform SHOULD NOT have released that story, or yet wrote it.
If I worked for Episode, I would make sure that people of all ages and nationalities were appealed to. Yes, I know a person has to be 13+ to read stories on the app and download the app, but let’s be real here; kids these days do not follow any rules or regulations. To be on the safe side, if a kid that was under 13 were to download the Episode app and read stories on there, I would try to be on the safe side. Meaning that I would lock stories that they are unable to read until they reach 13 years old. That’s how I would do it if I worked for the Episode platform.
