I’ll start with my questions: @Liz maybe you know the answers to these since you announced the gem choices for user stories?
- If a gem choice is included anywhere in a chapters script does that count as a gem chapter read or must each reader actually encounter that gem choice for it to count? Ex: the gem choice only appears if you made a certain choice like go left instead of go right. -my tracking of this in my story says that they must encounter it but other authors swear that the script just has to have a gem choice for it to count.
- Does the last chapter of a story count toward total gem chapter reads (or general chapter reads for that matter). Is there any point in including gem choices in the last chapter of a story?
- Does the first (free) gem choice count toward total gem choices selected? -support had told me yes but my experience in tracking this says no.
I’ve read the posts on these forums about gem choices in User Stories but there are some questions that have not been answered. I have asked other authors, emailed support, and experimented with gem choices in my stories but am still having trouble figuring out just how gem choices work in regards to gem chapter reads as a means to unlock the writers program.
