Is this really a case where your authors had a drop with their income or because qidian/webnovel creators’ income dropped?!! Buying/spending SS to unlock chapters will cost more and will get y’all more money than your readers reading everything free.
I rarely buy SS because its too costly but I immediately subscribed to your elite membership after it came out.
Its too disappointing to hear this news. I’ve been a supporter of webnovel and qi dian since you started your app. I started supporting y’all even through the controversy that you had with wuxiaworld. Yet, all you do is to get more money from us, your readers.
I will stop supporting webnovel if you wont give us a reasonable prices for a subscription. Goodness, you are more expensive than my netflix and viu subscriptions! My netflix cost me $10/mo and I can watch my shows in HD with 4 simultaneous viewing! Yet, here I am paying 20 some dollars for unfinished books!
I wont discount the fact that our dear authors also need their income, and that’s where the readers support is important. The more readers you have, the more royalties you get. I, for instance, gift my fave books all my extra SS. I don’t regret supporting my authors. Just disappointed with this money robbing app.
