I totally understand that this was a glitch but I love the feeling of multiple kudos. There has to be another way for people to be able to support the writers, since apparently, a fair amount of the userbase does not like leaving comments.
Solution: comment "Kudos!"No one has to come up with something to say, and they can leave however many kudos they like, on every single chapter of a multi-chapter fic if they so please.
Another thing I have seen is people commenting with hearts for kudos.
As a writer, I prefer this 1000 times over kudos. Kudos require no effort whatsoever, and it feels like you wrote a really long text and the person just responded with "k". At least tiny comments let me know you were't just reacting on reflex but actually liked what I wrote enough to say SOMETHING.
Bookmarks? You don't need to add any text or tags, just press a few buttons. Make them public and they show up in the stats. The expected author engagement is roughly the same as for kudos, i.e. none.
