SRandom: Translator, Count hall or Earl hall.. why his title keep switching around

I can switch to a contract earning the actual unlock as well, but it doesn't make much sense for me to do so. Basically, the split is equal among translator, author, and Webnovel. View More

Jqur: You earn part of say the 2500 SS spent not the normal to unlock the actual chapters? if so are you able to say what percentage.

Jqur: According to another author on webnovel, the translator sees none of the money from the actual payment for privilege.

Still holds, but probably will be shifted to #15 instead of #17 next week. No reason not to ask for progress on the charts. View More

lindatan90: It's a grammar mistake. The translator always uses past tense in the story regardless of the situation. There are many times when present tense should be used instead especially during conversation. Can't complain much though. His translation is quite good here compared to others.

Hey, at least you guys get like 20+ SS a day for free. In China, they get about 10 a day. Obviously, they wish to get more people to pay for SS, and they don't really 'owe' the reader a 'basic wage' of SS. View More

Zoruakun: Nah, the spirit stone price is a dead horse, everyone already knows how it works, wasnt ranting about that, I feel like its fair to the translators to not be able to manipulate SS price so they dont make it hard for themselves if they lower (less money) or lose popularity by raising/not lowering. The point of the rant was about how they forcefully and slowly remove our free sources of income and substitute it with something useless to make you think you earned something and suppress outcry by saying "you can help the community with your power stone, dont be so selfish".

Pretty bad example I thought about inflating prices through income (the character is a child):

There are three candies you like that cost 30, 40 and 60 cents respectively. Your dad gives you 1 dollar and 50 cents per week, so you can afford to eat them without much worries about saving up or anything. Suddenly, dad implements a new rule: "If you havent spent the money I give you within a week, I will take it away from you". He has taken away all of our savings as well as the possibility of ever saving up again and we can do nothing about it. He starts lowering it through the months and stops the fall at 70 cents. Technically you can still buy any of the candies, but not with the same freedom or in the same amount anymore.


Tl;dr Yes, you can have inflation with fixed prices if you can manipulate the income of the consumers, thats why qidian is being slimy, the translators/authors have nothing to do with this, just the qidian staff.

It's only for the rich and privileged, not everyone. View More

Ehbon: But it’s not like that’s going to stop anyone from doing the exact same thing that’s already being done, privileged just costs spirit stones. As long as they can see the chapters it’d be pretty easy to copy them, especially since there’s a download chapter feature on the app! Also the prices are outrageous, not that Qidian has ever had good prices but still...

Not true. The app on Android alone has 5 million downloads. It's quite okay using it. In fact, most readers use the app. View More

Ehbon: Seems they want to force you to download their app if you want to read the ‘privileged’ chapters. They’ve gone the route of restricting what you can see on the normal site because the app isnt good enough on its own to get downloads. Why am I not surprised...

Look, farming SS by bots is possible. You don't even need to be shown an ad for that; hence, giving free SS a monetary value is stupid. My definition of free SS being worthless is on a direct basis. Indirectly, it does bring about minute amounts of revenue, but that's besides the point. View More

N0xiety: I know that it is pointless to argue with you, but i will still say my piece;

Doesn't matter how much. I can't argue with you from the point of value as i can't know the value if Webnovel doesn't make the info public. And i doubt even you know the exact ammount, as they really have no need to disclose such information to a translator like you, unless you have some insider friends. Anyways, my problem isn't about its value, my problem is YOU keep talking about free ss as if it is worthless, and i just proved to you it isn't. It may be worthless to you and authors since Webnovel doesn't give you a part of the pie, however big that pie may be, but it isn't worthless. Free ss have a value, free readers have a value, however much it may be. They aren't worthless, or they wouldn't be here in the first place. It is yours and authors problem if Webnovel isn't giving you any part of it. Just stop talking as if free ss, and thus free readers are worthless. That is my problem with you...

You keep talking like ad revenue earns a lot. It doesn't. Not even enough to pay an editor. View More

N0xiety: Duplicate accounts also create ad revenue tho? And it really doesn't matter even if they didn't. From a math point of view, all Webnovel needs to do is divide the total ad revenue with the total number of free ss spent that month. There you go, then distribute the money according to that to authors. Ofc, you could say that an author may abuse the system with spamming accounts and giving himself ss, but that still doesn't change the fact that he needs to watch ads with all those accounts and also get into the chapter to unlock, thus also viewing ads again. What is the difference between a bot account and real account? They do the same actions in the end. So the ad revenue will still come, even from duplicate accounts. And if Webnovel doesn't want that to happen, there are pretty easy precautions they can take to deter authors or users from creating thousands of accounts for whatever reason. It may be impossible to stop completely, but it is easy to make it a very unpleasant and timely process even for a bot program. There is always a solution to problems, you just need to look for them instead of just saying there is a problem CKtalon. And i honestly don't think you aren't smart enough to come to this same conclusion. No, you definitely are. But ofc, taking the problem to Webnovel would be alot harder than to just refute the logical conclusion of us readers...

agnidawala: At first qidian gave us free chapters..
Then change to unlocking chapter with watching ads..
After that, qidian began charged us with SS..
The required SS per chapters thus increased..
Now there are stockpile chapters with a very high price..

I'm really afraid of where this will end.. I really hope this priviledged chapter thingy won't change the release rate of this novel..

That's not true since I'm agreeable with it. It's after all a choice for people to pay more for it. If it's too much for them, they can just stay behind. And as I said, it will monetarily benefit author and translator which I'm an advocate of. View More

SS price is always dependent on chapter length (word count). So there's no artificial inflation of the prices. It's just that the chapter is longer, and as a translator, more work needs to be done for them. View More

Zoruakun: Tsk tsk, qidian has already shown their true faces as mercenaries a long time ago. It was just implemented as sneakily as possible to have the least amount of backlash and people get used to the new status quo. Like how we had spirits stones that expired in double the current time and we lost them all of a sudden when they decided they wanted to cut it in half. And what passed me as the most sneaky, bastard, subtle, tiptoey **** (this privilege thing is just a slap on the face, nothing subtle about that) was how they slowly removed daily rewards so you would grow dependent on buying spirit stones to get access to new chapters (thankfully the consistence of most stories arent that great to begin with so I decided to stick with just this one and R:EFN, the latter whose author hibernates occasionally, leaving the situation pretty manageable even with the sneakiness). In the past you would get a random amount that used to be from 7 (if you were pretty unlucky) to around 13, I guess. Now, you need to have some pretty good luck to get anything besides 5 spirit stones with exp included (which is literally useless after obtaining energy and power stones), two power stones which is much worse, or standard 8 spirit stones that arent worth a chapter (and if my memory doesnt betray me, you can also only get exp). Before, you could hog a pile of spirit stones and spend it in many chapters, now you are lucky if you arent getting whittled down by the ****ty daily draws.

Rant over, Tl;dr qidian folks are sneaky bastards that lull people into a sense of security just to stab them in the back afterwards.
