    I think voting a novel in Qidian is not a good idea. There is a power ranking there and the higher the novel is on the ranking, the harder it is to access the chapters. I'm fine with ads but If the novel turns into premium, you would need spirit stones to unlock the chapters.

    I also think that it isn't wise to spend your spirit stones. They say that If the demand is high, the price hikes up. Spending would raise the economy and in turn, make things more expensive... I don't know what I'm talking about anymore.

    Anyway, if you want to vote a novel for the spirit stones, vote something that isn't on the ranking. This should heat up the competition and improve our standards of reading.

    That's all~

    You're over thinking it buddy. Besides, even if you have Spirit Stones, without chapters to spend it on, it means nothing.

    Very simple solution. Just stop using qidian until they stop trying to milk each and every cent instead of just being happy with the extra profit they get for very little expenditure. Or until the author and translator even get a fraction of a fraction of that money. Heck I don't think the authors even get paid for the translations now.

    Qidian sucks. Supporting them sucks by proxy. If you never kill a person or own a slave, but you fund an extremist slaver group, you are still a terrible person. If you don't like how qidian does things, stop supporting them.



    If you must have a solution that funds the wallets of the soulless monsters on the top of the qidian pyramid, just try to get people to vote for series that are pretty much unanimously considered terrible. Will even things out a bit.

    Mate you don't need to unlock the premium chapters. And you can just vote for the novels already premium if it really bothers you. And by spending your spirit stones i assume you mean the free ones? How would spending free consumables raise demand? You're seriously too deep down the rabbit hole

    Welp, sooner or later all of the good novels will be premium so just expect it. This way you won't feel too bad everytime a novel you read turns premium.

    Or you can follow the suggestions of our fellow daoists here so you can get more stones.

    This again? Pls nobody likes qidian, even a little if spiritstones bug you, just make/invite accounts via 10minutemail or something, and watch for their promos like the kings avatar one.

    Also whenever novel goes premium they seem to release more chaps so that the "paywalled" chapters start after the ad walled ones

    They have Traffic data.
    They know which novel is read the most and which is most popular...
    You can't fool them by not voting

    Bruh if you hoard Spirit stones now they'll become dust in 30 days, that's why your idea is impossible.

    Power rankings huh..
    Then why not give a 1 or 2 star to your favorite novel?
    Since it'll lower the "Power Rankings" you'll get your chapters more easily... according to OP's theory.

    Yes
    Their spiritual qi leaks out in 30 days unless u have bought them from a shady seller called cheadian. Those spirit stones have better quality. But they cost.....

    I recommend mining ur own spirit stones.....

    I think doing anything related to Qidian is not a good idea.

    I thought the 'hate' bandwagon had disappeared, but it's still there. If you are unsatisfied with Qidian, then don't use their services. Yes, the translations are considered a service and QI itself is a company. As for the premium chapters, it's no different from advance patreon chapters like what other translators did, just with different execution.
