HOW CAN I BECOME AN EDITOR FOR QIDIAN INTERNATIONAL?


You should email recruitment@webnovel.com saying something along the lines of 'I'd like to be an editor'. They should reply with a test, as an attachment. Complete the test (although there's no strict time limit, don't send a test in months after you receive it) and send the test back to recuitment@webnovel.com. They will notify you, if you pass.

WHAT ARE THE CULTIVATION RANKINGS FOR THE NOVEL I’M CURRENTLY READING?


Zswaleh put together a website of all the cultivation rankings for most, if not all, the novels on Qidian International.

WHAT ARE ENERGY AND POWER STONES AND HOW DO I USE THEM?


Energy and Power Stones are granted every day. The maximum number of Energy and Power Stones a person can have is dependant on their level. Learn more here: https://www.webnovel.com/privileges


Energy Stones can be used here: https://www.webnovel.com/vote

The novel with the highest number of Energy Stones at the end of the week will be released, allowing readers to enjoy a new novel.

Power Stones can be used on the webnovel’s novel page or at the end of a novel’s latest chapter. Voting with Power Stones can influence the novel’s position on the Power Rankings, which can be found here: https://www.webnovel.com/ranking/power

HOW DO I MAKE A NOVEL PICKUP REQUEST?


I made a thread and a few posts about this.


https://forum.webnovel.com/d/3912-novel-pickup-requests


https://forum.webnovel.com/d/3912-novel-pickup-requests/10


https://forum.webnovel.com/d/2127-howdo-you-make-requests-for-novels-do-it-can-be-put-on-the-what-s-next-list/2


The first link states some basic ‘rules’ as well as a template for a detailed Novel Pickup Request. The second link tells one how to find the raw link and status in COO for a novel. The last link will show you how to make a basic Novel Pickup Request, which I suspect most people will want. Take a look at the below flowchart, for the basic process that occurs if your novel is being considered. The novel requires the author’s permission to be translated as well.


Important: Munpia, a Korean Webnovel company, now have a partnership with Qidian, so now Munpia novels are allowed to be translated on Webnovel as well.

WHAT IS THANK GOD IT’S FRIDAY (TGIF)?

WHY HAS XYZ TRANSLATOR STOPPED PUSHING OUT CHAPTERS?


Said translator may be very lazy. They could also be having IRL problems. Or, if their translators are really bad, they could be undergoing a Quality Assessment check. After this QA, the possibility of them being fired is high.

WHAT ARE BADGES?


The Badges system act as a sort of achievements system. If you visit the following link and tap on each badge, you’ll be able to find out what you have to do to get the badge. For certain badges, there are levels: https://www.webnovel.com/badges


It should be noted that you cannot choose whatever badge you wish to display, for now.


HOW SHOULD I REPORT TRANSLATION/GRAMMAR MISTAKES?


You can make a thread on the Webnovel Forums (scroll up, you should find a question related to making forum posts). Remember to add the tag ‘Report Translation Mistakes’.

You could also post the mistake on the chapter itself and hope that the editor or translator sees your comment.

You could also go to the #Suggestions_Bug_Feedback channel on the Qidian International Discord server (go to the World Portal section to get the link), post the mistake and chapter number and ping CKtalon.

You could also join the novel’s Discord server (go to the World Portal to find if your novel has a Discord server), find a channel for reporting translation/ grammar mistakes and post your mistake. If the translator is on Discord, you can directly message them with the mistake.


I INVITED MY FRIEND BUT I DIDN’T GET MY SPIRIT STONES OR XP. WHY?


Once your friend has clicked the invite link, the process must not be broken, or you won’t get your Spirit Stones.


Your friend must sign up via a social account (Google+, Facebook, Twitter). They cannot sign up using email.


Once your friend has successfully been invited, check your inbox to find a certain number of Spirit Stones waiting to be claimed. If you don’t see this, and you’ve followed the steps above, make a forum post, detailing your issue, including your ID number (it can be found under your name, in your profile) and your friend’s ID number.


You only get 10 XP after you invite 10 friends, not just one.
