I don't deny it would be more difficult for the typical webnovel reader, or that it would be bothersome while casually reading in transit, but the whole point of the assessment is that it's geared to aim higher. To be completely honest, I can't see the majority of these webnovels being print and sold in a bookstore. Yes, the world is digital these days, and that plays heavily in how people read today, but I can't imagine 1-3 sentence paragraphs making up the entirety of a book or e-book as one commonly finds on mobile novels.
If I just stuck to webnovel standards for the mass audience, I might as well not undertake this project at all since most people (besides the 1 chapter with a few lines trolls) would score 10+ if the 15 range scale was kept. A weighted score is probably better to balance the importance of each factor, but that would take too much time. Using different ranges for each factor as well could be confusing rather than a straight, set range.
True, right or wrong is too black and white. I just couldn't think of any way to ask the question without sounding rather silly or long like, 'What inconsistencies or variabilities are in this system that might cause future complications or drawbacks?' If I could get a better alternative phrasing, that would be great, lol. I feel like there is a good one, but I can't remember...
10k words! Yes, that's definitely too much for a webnovel format. I'm not familiar with the process of adaptation into an anime, but that makes sense. 3 CL is just 1000+ words since that seems to be a pretty optimal length for flow and continuity of events from each webnovel chapter.
I see, those are reasonable concerns. It seems I have failed to properly communicate all details of the metrics. I chose to skip out on making the one (two) single factor of their own because I tied them into PD and RL. I do say that language is part of RL, however, but I didn't specifically write this merge of plot and settings. Because settings are where events take place, the plot can't be very well developed without proper settings. So yet again, here's another automatic reasoning of mine without putting it into direct words in the guidelines.
Thanks for all your inputs and concerns! It makes me realize what I wasn't aware of on the user/receiver side of this project. Nothing is perfect after all, so hopefully these improvements can make it a more helpful experience.
