Is it possible to respond to reviews for collaborations if you're not the author who posted the story originally?

This has been bugging me...

I'm part of the "00Carter" collaboration, which Rose first put up on AC under her name and then added the other writers, including me, as co-authors.  The story comes up with my other stories, and I can edit it and add chapters, etc.

The thing I can't do is respond to reviews.  The option just isn't there for me for that story.  I think the only one who can is Rose because she was the original author.

Anyone know if there's a way around that?  Besides just messaging the reviewer privately or leaving a review myself in response?

Sadly I don't think you can. It's a flaw in the script. I tried to fix it myself a few times and never got anywhere, and the person who wrote the main script has never gotten back to me with any resolutions for it, either. Hopefully with the next script upgrade that'll work again...

Yeah you're right, it's only the person who is the initial author.

LOL okay, thanks for checking into it!  That sucks, but if it's a problem with the script, I know there's not much you can do about it.

You can always reply as a separate review maybe?

Except it would be the password to Rose's own account. lol

I noticed we couldn't respond either.

Or perhaps make a 00Carter account, make it the main account, and all of you the co-writers

Yeah, and also, I'd worry that we would look like we were jacking up our review count.

That's a good idea...

Do you know if there's a way to switch who the initial poster is though?  Without reposting the entire story and deleting our reviews and everything?

how Sarah and I do it, is we each post our own parts. If you're all listed on the collab, which ever author posts the update, is the one who can respond to the reviews. I think... Because I know both Sarah and I have responded to reviews on Shadows before. I think that's what's happening. Maybe...
