Ok so I’ve been wondering for so long… like ok, you give gems and then what happens? And how does this support the author?
that’s what I always wondered as well. I think when readers do give gems, the author gems might be going up? Like let’s say I have 5 gems and someone spend 5 gems to support author, then i get 10 gems. I think that might be the reason? Maybe.
Usually if the author unlocks the writer payment thing, they get a gem bonus for every gem choice or something
Support author with gems gets them higher on the rank and helps you get paid along with the reads.
The way stories get ranked (and consequently appear on shelves) depends on the number of both reads and selected gem choices they have. In the portal you can view how many times someone has selected a gem choice in your story. They’re kind of like a currency that Episode uses to track how “well” your story is doing in another way aside from reads.
Yeah, I thought that was the only logical answer
Ohhh that makes sense actually…
Oh ok thanks!
Oki thank you!
The more gems you get, the higher on the “score board” you are. If you are getting like 25 gems per episode and another author is getting 30 gems per episode, they will be higher on the board than you
When you support any author with gems, it increases their story rank.
And if they have unlocked payments then they get extra money for the amount of gems they have received, example $0 x 1 gem received (I am not really sure about this…)
Got it, thank you!
No problem :)))
The answer is because the more gems that you earn in your story, the higher the ranking. Like if you get 200 gems spent on supporting you or bonus scenes(etc), your rank will probably be mid-pack. Whereas, if you get 1,000 gems spent on you, then you’ll probably be in the top 200 in your genre.
