FEATURE: Creating A Classic Shelf

THIS POST DOESNT BELONG TO ME BUT IT DESERVE ITS TO BE SEEN!
**All credit goes to @RMM **

Although I do read both styles, I personally prefer stories that are written in the classic style and it’s becoming increasingly difficult to find them. For the past few months every shelf has been filled with stories written in the ink style and you’d have to scroll dozens of times to find a classic story. My idea is to create a shelf on the app that only features stories that are written in the classic style. I do understand that the classic style is no longer being updated, however I’d like to see the authors who write in this style get the recognition that they deserve. There are so many stories that are truly incredible that go unnoticed simply because of the style that they were written in. Personally I write three stories that are all in the classic style, a few months ago I entered my story “The Loser” into “the call for story data” that was on the forums, the feedback shows that my story, even though it is written in classic, exceeded the engagement level that is looked for in featured stories (I’ve attached a screen shot of my results) additionally, my story “Beautiful Destruction” was featured on one of the weekly shelves, which means that the reader engagement for that story was also rather high. I believe that this is proof that the classic style still has many supporters and that it deserves more recognition and even a bit more publicity. If my idea were to be taken into consideration I would be more than happy to help in any way.
Thank you ~RMM

Mannnn Classic style used to be the stuff. I love Brenda’s stories like The Bet and The Dare and those were in Classic. Probably one of the first stories I ever read on Episode! To bring back those oldies but goodies, that would be AMAZING. Totally go for it!

Even though I don’t read Classic stories that often anymore I support this. People still love Classic and it’s the OG so it will always hold a special place in my heart and I think a Classic shelf would be great even though they’re not updating clothes and animations anymore.

I absolutely support this idea. You can barely even find a Classic story nowadays. It’d be nice to have an option to make it easier to search for them.

If the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy had babies would they take your teeth and leave chocolate for you?

This feature would be really nice to have.

I love this idea! I have quite a few stories but most of mine are Classic. I do like Ink but I still prefer Classic over Ink and Limelight.
I just published a new Classic story the other day its called "Crazy for you:) <3

Ugh yes, support! I would also personally like to see old featured stories because I recall there was some really good stories (in classic) like:

Always Talk to Strangers
The President’s Daughter

(But that’s all I remember tho. Would’ve remember more if I had my old account…)

I think this is a great idea. I don’t think it should be life a shelf though like Asian Voice and Black History Month. I think it should be a permanent category like Romance and Drama
