    I'm mainly asking because this one novel I'm reading(Ankoku Kishi Monogatari ~Yuusha wo Taosu Tameni Maou ni Shoukansaremashita~) has lately been posting two chapters instead of the usual one. This would normally be a good thing. Only if the second chapter they posted wasn't just a teaser. The problem is it's the only novel I've seen that does this, it only updates once a week(plenty of time to forget about it), and it's done this for 2 chapters straight so it hasn't been that long. So I guess the question for this thread is

    Are you able to post chapter teasers, or paywall chapters on novel updates novel list?

    Edit: I only posted this now because the last one was there for a week. Also i believe they resolved the issue so.

    Edit+: also I didn't know that the AI automatically gets the link. I thought that the author sends the link to the website (hence the post)

    It might be the bot that might think the teaser is a chapter from the way word excerpt set the page.

    No for both
    NU policy states that it won't accept any chapters behind any sort of wall
    Teasers are a no too. Many novels release teasers but none of them appear on NU. Plus eventully the Tl would relase the full chapter

    From everything I have seen chapter teasers will be filtered out. Just needs to be done by the staff and they don't follow every novel so just probably aren't aware of it yet.

    If you PM an online Mod about it they will surely give you an answer or address the fact that teasers are being shown as released chapters.
    Wuxia World did this for a lot of novels i read and the teasers didn't show up on NU so...

    Most teaser chapters are put into the actually webpage of the chapter. For example the teaser chapter webpage is the same as the one for when the chapter actually gets released. They just add the rest chapter to the page, not change the webpage. So the NU bot catches it until someone tells it of the issue.

    Infact, @Westeller @Shio
    Since you are both online.

    Look, someone trying to start something.
