Just a personal opinion but the only stats I assess stories on is the kudos/views ratio. Comment inflation is just a nonissue to me. Plus authors who reply are polite imo, whereas people who leave comments unanswered come across a little arrogant.

Why arrogant?

Not so much if the comments are things like 'love this!' Or similar. More so if someone has taken the time to write a thoughtful comment or asks a question.

I understand this sentiment. Except I mostly only feel this way when already-popular authors don't reply to thoughtful comments/questions. If the author gets little recognition and never replies to comments, I assume they're just shy. But if an author is popular and their replies taper off as their popularity grows, I do often get the sense that they've let it go to their head a bit.

The size of the fandom is more important than the quality of the fic when it comes to kudos/views ratio, so you might be missing out if that's all you look at.

AYRT Yeah, I know you're right but I haven't found any reliable reccers or rec blogs for my current fandoms. :/

Out of curiosity: how do you handle the kudos/views ratio when it comes to multi-chapter fics, given that a person can only give kudos once?
