Would this be difficult to implement into the new app version? I don't know anything about programming yet, but it doesn't seem too difficult looking at this. (please correct me if I'm wrong). I guess the main problem is that this is too small an issue for a very small minority of readers to be worth the effort.
@_08 IIRC they're not kept in persistent storage, but in memcached or equivalent? I don't really remember anymore, I just know that reboots have been one of the causes for session tokens being wiped out before.
Partly because of the aforementioned UI issues, I created a small bash script that will download everything from your JNC library. It will keep track of what it downloaded so next time you run it, it will only get whatever became available in the meantime (for instance pre-orders).
I'm currently using it for a while and see if it properly deals with pre-orders or cases where the book is technically published, but not yet available. If I don't encounter issues within a week or two, I'm gonna publish it on github.
Although I only tested it on Linux, no idea if it'll work properly on macOS or in this weird Linux subsystem in Windows 10.
@fozzedout And people scoffed at me.
No but seriously the "restrictions" I have put in place are very much to attempt to change people's market behavior to something that grows light novels in general as a reading market.
I don't want people to buy more books, exactly, what I want is people to be given more incentive to buy more books more often.
This also affects the iOS app. Sam has said he's aware of this issue in the Last/First Idol thread.
In vertical mode you can hold the page before releasing, and then you can see the text continued onto the next page. The text overlaps, but you can still read basically read it.
@paulo-0 well making a topic as watching I think puts it into both unread and notifications, and if you visit the topic it will clear it from unread, and clear all notification for that topic (I forget if it still shows you a notification about something like someone up-voting a comment you made even if you visit the topic that notification was in).
I know you should have a notification that I mentioned you, and this will show as unread, so if you click the notification or the unread both will disappear.
@eternal-wanderer I've been complaining to amazon about that for literally a year.
They refuse to list 7.5 and 8.5 correctly in the series, because KDP rules says volume numbers MUST be whole integers.
So then their algorithms screw everything up and no matter how many times I complain they keep reverting.
@bartzbb as far as I can recall it has always been in Members only, however it was created over 1 year ago so it could have started in premium only then been moved at some point just can’t recall that far back.
As for any other reason the people you gave the link to may not have been able to access that topic, they might just not have been signed in, that’s all I can think of right now at least.
