I don’t know yet exactly how I am going to resolve this. Something else was supposed to have happened when I published this. It was supposed to have appeared on a “Features” page but didn’t. Because, despite having set it up, there was no “Features” page.
So, now, if and when I do set it up, and if I do “transfer” your piece to that page, you may lose the data (reads, claps, etc.) associated with it.
Before I do anything like that, I’ll be checking with Medium Help to make certain it doesn’t have an effect on your numbers.
More than likely, though, I'll simply leave things as they are. Easier.
And, yes, time/size contrictions are a delight. Just as poetic forms can be if you stick to them. But, handcuffs? I don't know. Not my thing.
