I know this has probably been hashed over and over and over again. But, I'm not sure how I feel about how voting on ongoing serials works... Here's what I have noticed. As I began my story the first several chapters got poor votes probably because it was slow to start (I did tag it Slow), now that the action is happening it is getting much better votes.
So here's my problem. Since the early votes were lower, the average is still low even with the new votes coming in. I understand how SOL finds the median and adjusts vote values accordingly, and I'm not complaining about that. I'm just starting to think that if I'd had it to do again I would not have allowed voting until the story had gotten far enough along.
Has anyone tried that? Can you even do that? Can you turn off voting and then turn it on later once a story has enough content to make it worth it? I know I could have just waited to post until I had more chapters, but I was impulsive and wanted to get it out there. What other things does not allowing voting affect?
Sorry for the rambling, it is early in the morning.
