Strange MathI was consolidating two chapters into a single chapter in the middle of a large, multi-chapter story, and noticed that this dropped the story rating from a five to a zero. Possibly this is a coding quirk that was not anticipated by the mods. It seems likely to discourage editing on the part of authors, however.
|Ithilwen||I know that if one deletes the chapters that had the numerical ratings, the number disappears but not the label.|
|HRT||Actually, the chapter that got deleted didn't have any ratings at all. Readers had only rated the last chapter, which was left untouched. That's why this puzzles me.|
|fairady||Is it possible that ratings are attached to the chapter numbers and not the actual fic chapter itself? I mean, lets say you have chapters 1, 2, and 3. 3 has a rating on it. You delete 2, so that the fic is not 1 and 3. But the site only sees it as 1 and 2 with 3 being gone. So, since the ratings are attached to 3 and 3 is gone, the ratings are gone as well.|
And if that makes any sense to anyone but myself, I'll be astonished.
