In the past, I've always posted a 'limited' cast list when I submit the first chapter of a story, but this time I decided that it's really a wasted effort which artificially inflates the character's list download rate. However, I just got a reader response, pointing out a typo (I'd referred to a police Sargent instead of "Sergeant"). I'm glad he did, but it raises the issue, should authors post the complete character list, or is it better to release the information on a per-chapter basis. After all, you really don't want to include spoilers in a reference document designed to help readers remember who everyone is.
What do the various SOL authors do in this regard (those that produce character lists, that is)?
