    I was just wondering if there was a reason why no novel information pages are made for the Webnovel trial read novels on Novel Updates?

    No one bother to make the page for those novels since paywalled chapter can't be posted on NU....if webnovel want them on nu, they can make it themself.....but obviously they like the user going on their site to search instead of NU.....

    Showing the "trial" chapters from webnovel is akin to making publicity for a online bookstore. They allow you a peek then ask for money.
    I'm not part of novelupdates but I feel like this is this site exact opposite purpose.

    There are many novels that go behind pay walls have pages on this site and webnovels novels have pages on this site so there should be no difference with the "trial" novels.

    To be honest they used to but even webnovel users no longer bother.

    The consistency in which webnovel has further intruded into it's users bank accounts has managed to turn away many long time users. I stopped spending on there after they made it cost me nearly $20 a week to keep up to date with translations that actually degenerated in translation quality.

    Whoever that wants to create it can. If there's none that means no one thinks it's necessary.

    Try looking for the authors. They might have some novels on NU already.
    Code:
    https://www.novelupdates.com/nauthor/author-name/
    For example: https://www.novelupdates.com/nauthor/er-gen/
    You go into their novel and see their Chinese name.

    And once you have authors' Chinese names, you might be able to find all their novels.

    It depends on the site the novel is in. If its
    stuck at a certain chapter i doubt anyone is going to add it here. Or if it was available at some point it would be here.

    Does the novel have at least 1 chapter available for free?
    Are the chapters available without the need of logging in/spending money/downloading something/etc?

    If the novel fills both of those requirements, you can add it to NU yourself.

    Because no one bothered to add them.

    Or tried to add them.

    NovelUpdates series submission are open to all registered members of NU. It seems even you didn't bother to add them.

    Time to start submitting then ;)

    Yeah they seem to not put any tags when they’re posted on nu so I end up trying to read some of it just so I can add tags.

    Like they even posted the wrong novel under the wrong name before so I sort of feel they got tired with posting on nu & just tag on their own platform so if they make that mistake again at least they don’t have to go the extra step on to nu to fix it.

    The thing is, translator can put any title they want. When they do its almost impossible to search which novel they translate unless someone ask the translator. So if you want the chinese title go ask them, not NU.
