Benefits of a Syosetsu Account
Before I start talking about the tutorial, I’ll say the benefits first of having a syosetsu account.
If you can read raws , it will be helpful in helping you keep track of the web novels you want to read. It has a bookmark system which shows the bookmarked web novels in your home page or profile page or something, and it will show if there is a new chapter. Its really helpful if you follow a lot of web novel.
As for those who can’t read raws, if you think that it won’t benefit you, it might not but if you want to support an author it will benefit you. As for how it will support the author, Syosetsu has a point system and then bookmarking. By giving points to the author’s novel it will make it have better reputation or just makes the novel famous. And if a lot of people gave points it shows that a lot of people like the novel and a lot of people read it and in turn makes the authors happy and then they get motivated. If there are a lot of points the novel will be included in the rankings. Getting in the Rankings is a bit of status for the Authors, it basically tells the author “your novel is in the rankings because its awesome” and most authors will be happy about it and will likely motivate the author. there are many rankings in Syosetsu, there is a ranking for each genre and then in the rankings for each genre they are separated by Daily Rankings, Monthly Rankings, Quarterly Rankings and then Yearly Rankings and they are updated everyday especially the Daily rankings.
And then if they get really famous there is a high chance that they will get an LN. And about the bookmarking, it just basically following the novels and the author will know how many bookmarks it, its the same with points the more the user bookmarks their novels the author will most likely motivate the author.
I say Motivate a lot its because that I have seen a lot of Authors that drop their works because its not famous enough or not many read it. And then these great works gets buried in a pile of trash and no one will barely notice it. And I find this a waste. There might be other ways to support the author but this is one of the simplest ways. If we at least make the novel reach the daily rankings , they will be recognize and then it will bring in more readers. As a creator, knowing that many people like your work is a happy thing. So I ask you guys, let’s anonymously support the authors.
