I am unable to edit any of my profile settings.
I just have a question: Can you write your story on mobile? I have little time to use my computer at home and I really want to finish a chapter of the story I'm working on. Thanks in advance for your responses.
I believe a conscious decision was made to not allow users to contact eachother via private messages. Although I understand why this may not have been included (spammers), I'm finding it a severely lacking feature of the site.
For example, recently I've had an influx of users adding my story to their various reading lists, which is great, but I can't then reach out to them with follow-up questions so as to improve my craft with their suggestions. If a person decides to give feedback, ... See More it's usually compelled to because they loved it. Very rarely do you get the 'meh' and 'so-so' reviews because they don't really care to do so, they didn't finish the story.
Personally, I wouldn't abuse this by spamming people, that wouldn't be my intention. I don't think sending messages to readers and simply asking for their private feedback would be considered as harassment.
Perhaps this is a feature only authors have IF the user has added their work to a reading list?
While I'm on the topic, I'd like to officially suggest keeping track of how many people have added you to a reading list, which is different to simply reading the story. A breakdown of most popular completed chapters would also highlight weaker sections of our work where readers are dropping off.
Here is a great idea for you, A friend of mine from China would like to read the stories posted on this wonderful site, only, he is not that fluent in English, perhaps you could create some kind of programme that automatically translates stories in other languages such as Japanese, Chinese, Russian, Korean and so on so forth. Just an idea to consider.
Here is another Inkitt tip for you! This one is about the site...
Did you know that you can leave comments and feedback on specific parts of a text?
All you need to do is highlight the line or word you want to comment on. A menu should popup. Click 'Leave Feedback' and let the author know how much you loved the metaphor they just used, or politely inform them of a typo.
You can also share the highlighted text on social media and help spread the word about the ... See More amazing story you've just discovered.
I have a question regarding the Analytics button on the computer. When it displays the most current option of how many users have read your stories, does it refer to if the user just clicked your story and maybe read the first couple of chapters, or read the story all the way until the last chapter? I'd like to know if the amount of people in the analytics shown have actually read the full manuscript, rather than skipping around or not finishing the entire thing (I'm guilty of sometimes not ... See More finishing all the way to the last chapter, so I'm curious to know if that marks as a read in the analytics, to put it another way). Super sorry if that sounded confusing :(
Just swinging in with another top tip about the Inkitt App.
Did you know that you can customize your reading experience?
If you tap on Readability in the menu, you will get three different background choices: White, Eggshell, and Nightowl. These make reading on the App more enjoyable no matter the time of day.
You can also adjust the size of the text here, so you will be able to enjoy a good book even if you can't find your reading glasses.
I'm a ... See More big fan of the Nightowl setting! How do you like to customize your experience?
hi there, I have a question regarding the 'Analytics' tab when I am logged in. There is a 'Collected Data' bar and a number of 'Copies Left'. Are these two in any way related for the purpose of being considered for publishing? For instance, do we need to secure 100 downloads as well as 100% on the bar?
Hey everyone! In case you haven't heard, the Inkitt App was released last week. Now you can carry Inkitt stories around with you in your pocket and read them on the go. The App is jam-packed with cool features so I thought I might share one with you:
Has anyone discovered the auto-scroll feature yet?
Once you have started reading a story, just hold your thumb down on the screen (I suggest in the margin). The text should start to move by itself. You can increase the speed ... See More of scrolling by dragging your finger down the page, and decrease it by dragging it to the top.
Try it out and let me know what you think :)
Its been a while. I've just seen 2 posts online about you and am quite concerned for other users.
I will include the links here. There have also been comments in the groups (when they're actually getting comments...it seems really quiet in here) that have writers very anxious.
Could you please clarify a few of these matters? It would be great to hear from you guys.
Thanks, guys. I look forward to hearing your side of the story.
