Community and Content Guidelines
Bibbit strives to create a community that fosters creativity. We’d like to let people express themselves in an open forum context.

This feature, available on the homepage covers and on book description pages, allows you to tailor content to your preferences. Authors will not see dislikes and we do not display the number of dislikes a story receives anywhere on the site. For example, if you consistently dislike stories from a certain genre or that contain certain tags, we will display similar stories to you less as the site’s content grows.
