I’ve found people asking this question on the forums, and I’ve seen some speculation, but I’m hoping to get a firm answer from someone who knows.
When you update an episode/chapter, people currently reading the episode you’ve updated will be credited a pass and forced to re-read it. Say this happens with episode 4. When the person re-reads that episode, do they earn points that stack on top of the ones from the first time they read it? Or will their points go back to what they had been at the end of episode 3, as though they were reading 4 for the first time?
I’ve seen people introduce skips for previously read episodes. Does this mess up gains/points? If not, it seems the alternative, re-reading and re-choosing, messes up gains/points. I’m wondering about points specifically: how does “rereading” an updated episode impact them? I’m trying to decide how to introduce a skip option. If I have one, I could ask readers to re-choose major choices so points aren’t messed up, but I’m worried it might instead accidentally double points for the episode.
