FEATURE: No Need to Ask for Story Recommendations for New Shelves


I think it’s crazy how Episode asks for story recommendations every time their is a new shelf that is going to get introduced on the app. This new shelf “Adulting” consists of stories that are way over 10k readers (stories by popular authors). Two of them that I saw had over a million reads. There are only a few stories on the shelf that does not have that many reads. It’s a bit unfair that the Episode platform asks for story recommendations when they know people are going to recommend a lot of stories by popular authors. Honestly, I don’t see the point in asking for recommendations.

There are a lot of less known and upcoming authors that has great stories, and yet they are going unnoticed when a new shelf comes around. Some people to do recommend less know authors and upcoming authors’ stories for new shelves, but obviously Episode doesn’t see it. Since they are making these shelves, Episode could AT LEAST make shelves for less known and upcoming authors. Just saying…


Moved to Feature Request since topic was created in feature request style. :v::peace_symbol:


I agree. They have asked for recommendations for Global stories now and I nominated my story and so did another girl but I feel discouraged when stories with lots of reads are nominated. Some stories being nominated aren’t even global stories. fml :woman_facepalming:


I agree. What’s the point in recommending stories that are already successful? Episode should focus on smaller authors and help their stories get recognized in the community.


I know right. It’s crazy. I’m tired of seeing the same authors being featured on new shelves.
