Comment on Upcoming changes to kudos

  1. Glad to see this fix!
    I think a hit count is a good indicator of overall traffic- if I have a 20 chapter fic whose hit count still goes up by 3-4 two years after it’s published, I know it’s being accessed and enjoyed. The kudo count gives a good number for individual readers. Having people be able to leave 5 kudos on each work doesn’t really provide any meaningful feedback for writers.

    I was wondering- what information is stored regarding a guest kudo that would allow you guys to find duplicates? Are you going by IP or timestamp or is there something else? Just curious.

    1. I had one fic that had a thousand hits on it in one day. No other fics, just that one. It was a bot. This has happened a lot of times to other people too.
