well its no secret that webnovel is made to earn money and as much as all users dislike that its not like we have any real reason to complain about paying authors for the work they do...
I do have a small suggestion so implement a system to offer free chapters for long time members of the community.
The system should work as follows:
Every user gets 1 free chapter for every week they have been a member og webnovel.com. that is 50 chapters a year. This count should count towards EVERY novel.
as it is now users typically get 100 free chapters of a novel (which should be about the limit to go premium)
as member who have been a member for 2 years would however be able to read the first 304 chapters for free...
i think this system would keep around members for much longer and it would be less expensive to read multiple premium novels.
most novels are pretty long anyway so this would not hurt the autors much either... and given that you only get 1 free chapter a week and most novels publish between 6 and 14 chapters a week this will like cause people to buy more chapters in the long run in order to avoid the worst cliffhangers
So what do you guys think? could this system work well for everyone?
