Comment on Upcoming changes to kudos

  1. This was never a feature, though; it was always a bug. I've never been able to leave more than one signed-in kudos intentionally, and depending on how they plan to validate guest kudos, there's still probably going to be a way around it if someone is really determined.

    If one kudos isn't enough, that's what comments are for. And if you don't know what to say, or are too shy to say anything - well, AO3 has already solved that problem, too: just leave an emoji or two. ❤️ 😉

    A lot of people are already complaining that the kudos function is causing readers to comment less. I personally love kudos, but I see no reason to add fuel to that fire. And allowing a new kudos per chapter is just going to encourage people to write shorter chapters, and make the sort-by-kudos function a lot less useful.

    One kudos per fic per user seems perfect to me, and this is just a long overdue fix to a very minor issue.

    1. Seriously - I wish we could "like" comments on here or something but these are such good ideas/explanations. I can't show support to this comment by any other way other than commenting so I'll do that. I agree so hard.
