I will be honest, I’m not sure the thought process of Babelchain as to their new system and perhaps I will never know, but truth be told, from a perspective of a member such as I, it looks flawed and is without any sense.
To make it worse, the administrators offers no response or explanation to the changes and why they’ve come to this new system, or if ever they did, it was vague. Moreover, when nominated novels are declined, there is no explainable reason for their choosing, only a “.” and that is a bit problematic. To make matters worse, more than one person is needed to vote for a chapter before it is MTLED. What if no one plans to read that one chapter? What then? What will Babel do? I only see it as a further encouragement for users to create multiple accounts. It by no means prevents them, rather it aggregates and gives them an incentive to create more accounts if this method is to be used. It’s flawed, simply put.
And… if the end goal is revenue, I would highly consider turning to ad revenue instead rather than this confusing nonsense.
