Recommendation: Make it happen

#1
Lightbulb 
Does anyone go to novelupdates.com?
Just go and click on any of the novels. See this wonderful recommendation list?
I would love to have it on RRL! Because I know that if I enjoy a novel, I also enjoy its recommended novels.

I want novelupdates.com recommendation lists on RRL.

Am I the only one who want to make it happen? Please, make it happen. May I ask the go admins to fw:ask task their slav developers to work on that?
Now seriously, I'm just asking for opinions and if someone can tell me what the admins/devs think.


Edit 1: For those wondering, it looks like this:

(random novel on novelupdates)
Library of Heaven’s Path https://www.novelupdates.com/series/libr...vens-path/
Recommendations
History’s Number 1 Founder (15)
History’s Strongest Senior Brother (7)
Cultivation Chat Group (5)
I’m Really a Superstar (5)
Running Away From The Hero! (4)
Absolute Choice (4)

Yes, NovelUpdates gives you a splendid reading list for each and every of the novels you like.

Meanwhile, us on RRL, we can only fetch recommendation like this:

[url=https://forum.royalroadl.com/forumdisplay.php?fid=5850]
Science Fantasy Story List
Fiction List

Survival Fantasy novel, be it another world or not 
Stories about building a kingdom/city or starting a business in a fantasy world.

Edit 2:
Now it seems technically doable.

But is Novelupdates recommendation system going to work on RRL?

There are many LitRPG/Fantasy novels on RRL, so many that there may be not much variety in recommendation. Top Fictions may flood the recommendations instead of the actual relevant novels. Obviously if the recommendations list becomes a copy of the Top Fiction lis, then there's no point.
Is this what's going to happen? It's hard to refute if you're not very familiar with the working of NU and RRL recommendation.

Can it works vanilla? Can it works with modifications? What modifications? Will it not work at all? What will prevent it from working?

If you are very familiar with NU or/and RRL recommendation, please give your opinion.

Most certainly. But I searched 'recommendation' and only got this:
http://forum.royalroadl.com/showthread.p...mmendation


Not exactly what I have in mind... If I can't find it, then others probably can't. So I created (another?) one :/

Edit: If instead of 'thread about better recommendation' you mean the current place where ppl ask for recommendation. Then yes, we have one but I don't like it. http://forum.royalroadl.com/forumdisplay.php?fid=5850 <--Meh.

I was talking about this thread: https://forum.royalroadl.com/showthread.php?tid=81394

Or https://forum.royalroadl.com/showthread.php?tid=48100 (though this is evidently out of date).

Or just this in general. https://forum.royalroadl.com/forumdisplay.php?fid=5850

First link is nice I guess? But still nowhere as good as NU. I mean here, random novel on NU:


Library of Heaven’s Path https://www.novelupdates.com/series/libr...vens-path/
Recommendations
History’s Number 1 Founder (15)
History’s Strongest Senior Brother (7)
Cultivation Chat Group (5)
I’m Really a Superstar (5)
Running Away From The Hero! (4)
Absolute Choice (4)

For each novel you like, this practically gives you your reading list.

Oh, I get it!
Based on what you've already read, it will suggest similar works.

I like this idea.

I know right?
Now I'll be editing first post because I'm figuring out RRL members don't know NU...

Um, while that might be a nice idea, the logistics will be a nightmare. Who gets to decide which novel should be added to the recommended list of a specific novel? The readers? The author himself (who might not have read much)? What about the lesser-known stories that nobody reads? Even if they are similar, they will get left out and it becomes this vicious cycle of the popular novels recommending other popular stories.
