I’m not trying to cast stones at anyone in particular at all here, but I’ve been bumming around Wattpad for a couple weeks now and been noticing a number of stories that are substantially higher in reads than me but sport a huge discrepancy between their reads and votes. It’s to a scale that it makes me wonder if folks are buying reads and if that’s acceptable or not?
For example, my read to vote ration is around 4-1, which seems low but whatevs, that’s cool. But some stories I’m seeing, the ratios are more like 60-1, which–come on, that can’t be right. Someone has to be liking what they’re reading, if these stories are getting so many reads.
