FEATURE: Skipping reread

Support. Totally.

As an author who uses gains/points that really affect the story, I can’t support this.
Can you think of an easy way around that issue?

I think that people should not have to reread. I understand that authors sometimes forget to add details, etc. All I am saying, (please don’t take this negatively) is that you should quintuple check your story/episode before publishing. If it is majorly changed, then the author should have the option to make people reread with a free pass. But if there’s a few typos, the author can just hit save and then new readers’ll see the newer version. Sorry, I know I’m babbling.

i cant really support this? if they changed the whole episode to fix gains youll ruin the story because you wont have the gains to move on? like if it was a story where choices matter and a choice in that story mattered it would kind of break the script because it doesnt have that gain (i think)

You’re right. I added the option to skip the chapter at the beginning of each episode in case readers were made to re-read. Because my choices mattered I repeatedly had people fanmailing me or DMing me saying they accidently skipped the chapter (even after I gave 2 warnings) and they missed almost the entire content of the next chapter because they never made the gains.

It’s frustrating to re-read a chapter, I get that. But you don’t lose anything by re-reading and it makes things 10x more complicated for an author with choices that do make a difference. (Which is probably why Episode would never implement this).

I personally like this idea:

Good point.

Agreed. I don’t even notice these “changes” unless it a revamp/changed storyline, which in that case, the reader can replay the story (unless they have already reached the five-replay limit, which is another issue I have talked about).

While there are authors who automatically code this into their stories, a lot of them don’t.

Why we don’t have this yet? :weary:

Support for sure.

SUPPORT!!! 100% I love this option!!!

maybe ask them what choices they did?

Personally, I never remember my choices lol. I can just see all the “UGH I DIDN’T WANT TO REPLAY BUT I CHOSE THE WRONG CHOICES. NOW IM GOING TO DIE. CAN I CHOOSE AGAIN???” lol
I have too many important choices in most of my stories to have this option. If it was just one or two it might be okay.

Support.

I was just going to make a thread about this!
99% of the time I don’t see a difference either

Support!

I just have a question to ask…? So basically, I have two questions. 1. When new episodes release, is there an option to skip to them when you have already read their story before the newer episodes? Thanks and 2. I was watching an add to skip pass refill time, when my phone died. Then when I joined back not only did my pass not save, but the episode that I was supposed to be reading, had just apparently been READ!? So what am I supposed to do now without having to re-read the whole thing again and getting back to that CRUCIAL last episode?
