I agree. One of my initial complaints here was that I liked when I had a ranking system that was somewhat predictable. Like I could figure out how to best tackle my story so I might be able to rank, because I noticed huge success with my story if it ranked well.
A lot of the fun and drive is removed when the ranks don’t work, at all, because aside from the fans, that was the main incentive for posting on Wattpad. I should also add that it’s fine if they break for a week, but after a few months of being broken, it’s definitely ruined some motivation for the site.
My stories have also fell to some low ranks, then will go up a little, then fall back down pretty hard
