See the screenshot you posted? Go to settings. There you will find “Contact Support”. That’s how I do it. But before clicking there, copy your Support Id number.

I used to not have to pay any gems for bonus/gem options in community stories. but after the update I suddenly have to pay gems for it and I emailed episode but they’re not helping with that.
it’s kinda odd and unfair tbh I’ve been playing for years and I nvr once had to pay gems for community stories but after the update I actually have to.
am I the only one?

Hey, dont worry, you’re not the only one. I just finished reading the first chapter of hidden shadows and there was an option to pay 15 gems for a bonus scene. I also dont think it’s fair coz it’s a community story, so I honestly dont think there should be any gem options.

I didn’t think Anyanka normally even put gem choices in her stories :thinking: I just finished that story as well and didn’t have to use gems for anything, but that was before I did this last update that ruined everything.

Many authors are adding gem choices to try and help them get into the writer payments a little easier. Most that I know, do not have critical scenes as a gem choice, but something extra to try and earn some extra reads toward payments.

Authors add this as a way to make or help with their payment program. Also the only reason this is there is because initially only 15% of users in total could view gem choices in user stories, but it seems this new update has made gem choices visible to all. The gem choice was always there, you are only able to view it now because of the update.

Are you seeing gem choices for 15 as well @PoojaI ? I have an iOS device so I still can’t see them, but this bothers/worries me since technically, gem choices in user stories shouldn’t be more than 10 gems (if a story has >100k reads). From screenshots I’ve seen, most people are seeing 15 gems? I know when the feature was released, they said a tiny portion of readers might see gems for 15, but it seems to be everyone?

I haven’t seen any gem choices yet. Don’t get them on iOS and I also haven’t gotten the Android update (maybe it’s not available in my region yet idk).

15 gems is :eyes: That’s also what I’ve seen on people’s screenshots

Definitely seems to be more than 2.5% of users :see_no_evil:
