    Really it’s not cuz the novels are translated by Qi. It’s that many of those novels really are mediorce and deserve the rating they got. The rankings are probably based on how many people click on the link or something so even if it has bad ratings, as long as there are people who read it it will still be up there.

    Meh. there are a lot of thrash ones that are just popular due number of releases and frequency. There's also good ones which are popular and have a high rating like Avalon of five elements

    rather than ratings, i read the reviews.
    those that makes sense not those just full of hate without any reason.
    it's easy to rate any novel without reading it.

    *i wanted to read the black card but the reviews are really bad. the introduction was good but now i'm hesitating to read it cause of the reviews.

    My rule of thumb for qidian novels is add ~0.3 to the rating here on NU and subtract ~0.3 from the rating on QI and then average the 2 together and you get something approaching realistic.

    I believe ranking is by views, not rating

    Honestly I feel it is fully justified, the author has the choice not to use qidian as a platform just as we do. If they worried about bad ratings they would use 17k ect. obviously they make enough despite/due to QI shady business practices to stay.

    the novels are good but the problem is QI, its the mafia of the novels, if you are translating something and they want it, they shot you down if you refuse to work for them for low wages

    i wouldn't look at the ratings, the ratings here are usually lower , and the ratings there are artificially raised.

    of course you don't need to take my word for it, go to qidian and try to put 0 stars on anything.

    you can't.

    this way, every novel starts with one point, which is 16,67% of the ratings that they get for free.

    they're full of such tricks. for example, you can like their app no problem, but you can only dislike their app after logging in with facebook.

    who would log in to something they dislike????

    yeah, i think they just base it on how many people click the chapter links for a book. the one with the most clicks is the most popular since thats the one most people are reading.

    a mass Qidian chapter release wont affect that since you would only need to click the first chapter link here. the rest would be from their website.

    chapter click rate and reading list add rate is the best way to check the popularity of a novel

    tfw the thread creator leaves after answering their own question.

    but seriously, why the fuck are people constantly making threads about this?
    The answer is either:
    1. It's a QI novel
    2. It might suck.
    3. 1+2

    As for monthly ranking: that is based on activity. like how many people update their place (click the checkmark), add it to their reading list, rate/review the novel, etc. Has nothing to do with their rating.

    Quite literally the only reasons. Anyone who spend more than 3 seconds thinking about it would realize this. You literally said the answer in your opening post.

    Locked.
