FEATURE: Unpublish a Story

Instead of having to lock our stories with a password or loop, hide them from our profile (while they still pop up under search results) and constantly remind our readers not to spend their passes on this story, why don’t we all just get blessed with a simple solution for this: an “Unpublish” button for the stories we’ve published.

Perhaps this story needs to be revamped, so we would like to republish it once it’s ready. Perhaps this story is currently on hold and we don’t want our readers to read it until it’s actively updated again. Maybe we even feel like discontinuing this story, but we don’t want to permanently delete it just yet. We all have our reasons.

Whatever your reason may be, I think this is yet another absent must-have feature.


Unpublish

I’m surprised no one’s suggested this feature separately before though.

If you like this idea, make sure you leave a :heart: on this post and comment your thoughts below. Much appreciated! :slightly_smiling_face:

SUPPORT, THIS WOULD BE THE BEST FEATURE EVER :heart_eyes_cat:

I SERIOUSLY LOVE YOU FOR POSTING THIS! :sparkling_heart:

Lol, I suggested something along those lines but unfortunately my post contained two feature requests (breaking the guidelines) and everyone was telling me to go support the delete stories thread…and then it got closed. To be fair, this is when I was new. Looking at my first thread is so cringe worthy, I swear :rofl: Anyways, I dreamed the red un-publish button would exactly like that. It’s like you went into my mind :smirk: :alien:

Aw, thank you :purple_heart:

While the delete feature may be similar to this, I think unpublishing should come along with it (as I already explained in the original post). This is why I’ve created a separate thread for this one since no one has (weirdly) made one before.

Who knows, I may be a mind reader :thinking:
