Hi, my dear authors and readers,
I have a very important question and it’s about customization.
I always have limited customization in my stories but I thought about adding full customization but for gems (more specifically 12 ) There would be limited customization choice and under that full customization choice for gems.
So if you can express your opinion on this because I would really appreciate it. I would like to satisfy as many people as possible so even if you are against please tell me so I can work with it. But please don’t be rude to anyone, it’s just their personal opinion.
Honestly, I think that’s a great idea. If you want to encourage people to use Limited customization (because you had a certain vision or whatever the reason), then I think making them use gems is a fair choice. Gem choices only annoy me when they’re for important plot points, so this is what they were made for; to offer benefits they wouldn’t usually get
I think that’s a good idea, the readers can either pay or do it free. Being on the episode forums I have realised that most people don’t even change the mcs appearance. I personally like to have customisation but if your looking at the majority of the community, that’s a good idea.
I do really recomand not to, I dont CC but I would not wanna read a story who do something like this. your not even gonna make the code yourself you just use Daras, I find it greedy and wrong, also I am sure there was a rule about full CC could not cost gems, first time, it can for re-cc. which btw I would be fine with.
I made a poll, about what people would pay, if your interested, this are the result.
Honestly, I think that would annoy the majority of readers, particularly if the first full and/or limited customization of the story is for gems purely because practically every other story offers it for free and there are a lot of readers who much prefer to fully customize whichever character they’re playing as.
There are some authors who implement customization for gems in later chapters if the reader wants a second, third, fourth chance to customize, and I haven’t heard them say that it wasn’t successful for them but I definitely do not recommend it for the first customization chance in the story.
It might be worth trying that out for later chapters though if you wanted to? Charging x gems for limited CC and x gems for full CC later but maybe warn the reader at the first customization, that the next ones will cost them? Just a thought. 🤷😊
