Comment on Upcoming changes to kudos

    Au contraire, you can sort by comments as easily as you can by kudos. Another option is to hit the bookmark button; people can sort by that stat, too, and also maybe find the fic from seeing your bookmark.

    1. Still doesn't feature in the kudos stats which most people seem to use to check for well-regarded fics. You can artificially inflate comments - intentionally or otherwise.

        The point being that not being able to artificially inflate kudos is a good thing, right?

        1. Obviously.

          I respond with thanks for each comment I receive - this would suggest double the number of comments. Courtesy and gratitude (or back and forth discussion), therefore, results in suggestion of double the comments actually received.

            I’m glad we’re in agreement! This is a great bugfix AO3 is implementing to make the kudos statistic more fair for everyone.

        "Most" people? Some people.

        A lot of kudos means *nothing*--utter garbage gets a lot of kudos. There are many people who kudos every single fic they read, so that tells you ZERO about fic quality.

        I mean, if all you want is "this fic hits all the currently trendy tropes" then I guess.
