Unpublishing: Do I keep reads & votes?

If I unpublish a book to edit it then republish it, do I keep my reads? Votes and comments too?

I just don’t want to lose my reads (or votes or comments) but I also don’t want my followers to keep getting notifications about me editing the book.

Yes. They’ll only disappear if you delete it.

Thank you! I thought that might be it but I wanted to be sure!

Yes, you do keep your read and votes count. I’ve done it before.

You’re readers aren’t getting editing notices unless you’re unpublishing every chapter before you re-publish the edited version. They only get a notice when you upload something, not if you simply change something in the text and save it.

That being said, no you won’t lose your votes and comments however you will lose all the reading lists you’re on. So if you want to maintain the reading lists you need to keep at least one chapter up.

It’ll all stay with the story :blush:. When you republish the chapter, the comments, votes, views will return with it ~
