  1. Help Undiscovered Authors

    Stories are chosen for the lists based on an algorithm system. That's unfair. If new and undiscovered stories don't appear on the lists, how are they going to get noticed? Some stories are in neither of the 3 sections which are hot, undiscovered and trending. All stories should make the list even if at the bottom.

    • Series/Sequel Option

      Most people don't read sequels because it means saving another book. It should be that once we finish the first book, we could have like a new chapter after that has the next cover, then we can keep going as if it was one book. Basically we should be able to add a page that is just a picture

      • Make Multi-Author Function

        This would allow multiple people, with a limit of 20, to collaborate on the creation of a book. Each person could post a chapter in it without the consent of the others.

        To make the book, you fill out the description, title, and cover, then send the proposal you just made to another user (for example, @joe), showing him my ideas for the book. If he hits "accept co-author request," he is now a co-author. If he declines, nothing happens. An author may not back out of the book. Any user may put, in their settings, an option to NOT…

        • Filter/Previously read

          There are always "Suggestions" or "Similar" books that I have already read. You should put a filter so that books that have already been read don't come up anymore. We should also have a history of books that we've read. (not the notifications) Maybe have the previous books we've read come up like online history - date, title, author.

          • Search for completed stories in your library

            The ability to search for completed stories in your library so they don't have to have completed in the title... I like reading stories that are completed and as my library is so vast I would like to see all the story's that are actually completed when I search for them...

            • Eliminate incomplete stories from Search that haven't been updated in a year or more.

              Wattpad's search is jam-packed with stories that are incomplete and haven't been updated in YEARS. So many unfinished stories are there that make it difficult for you to find stories that are regularly updated/completed. I think stories that haven't been updated should be at least eliminated from search, and possibly even unpublished (but not deleted, so the author can come back to it and finish it if they wish.)
              I searched the words "teen story" and the second story that showed was an incomplete story that hasn't been updated in a year, as you can see in the picture.

              AGAIN:…

              • Display how many people have added your story to their reading list.

                We can see how many reads, comments, and votes our stories have. But it's impossible to know how many users have added our stories to their reading lists.

                Personally, I would like to know how many times my story has been shelved. I know that a notification is sent to me whenever someone adds my story to their reading lists. But I can't see them collectively. It's tiresome to scroll through my notifications just to count them, especially for those who have been on Wattpad for more than a year.

                So what I'm asking is that, there should be a…

                • Block

                  We should be able to block entire tags because it is really beginning annoying that one direction stories are coming up everywhere and I have no interest in reading them, we should be able to block tags and so these stories won't be suggested to us unless we directly type in that tag or remove the block

                  • Private reading list?

                    I want a private reading list. That is separate from where the the current public reading list is. I want the private reading list where the library and achieve is.

                    • Star system

                      Please please do something so that we can give a story like 5 stars if it is really good and so on. It would help people to just recover GOOD stories and not just stories with tons of reads.

                      • Wattpad Convention

                        I think it would be cool if there was a Wattpad Convention. Wattpaders could meet their followers and their favourite authors. It would also be a great way for people to promote their stories, or even gain followers.

                        • Sort Library as Reading lists

                          I think that with the 'sort library as' choices, specific reading lists could be added in there so you could easily pick out any reading list you want to read a book or books from. If you have over a hundred books in your library or something, it would be much more convenient to sort library as 'reading lists', pick which reading list(s) you want, and choose a book to read from there. This way, if the story you want is at the very bottom of your library or something you don't have to scroll that far down.

                            A lot of the time I'll go off Wattpad for a while or take a break from a book and completely forget where I left off! I think there should be a button at the top that says "place bookmark" that you can push when you want to save your spot. It would be cool if you could place more than one so you have easily find your favourite parts again.

                              I'm hoping that wattpad would be able to post videos which aren't posted in Youtube. Like when I'm making a specific story, I would be able to post my own video in which I had recorded personally.

                              • not add the author as part of the book's reads

                                When I write, I like to save often so if my laptop malfunctions, the story is saved. The problem with that is when I save and preview, it counts me as a read for my own book. I didn't publish it yet. The reads increase, but it is all me. One of my chapters have 27 reads and only two other people have read it. I want to know how many reads I get as accurate as possible. If you could do this, that would be great. Thanks

                                  I, along with many other, have lots and lots books in my library and there is not a really good way to organize them all. So I suggest you make book shelves in the library. Book shelves would allow the reader to organize their books into different categories like completed, books in progress and currently reading. Each shelf would be able to be labeled for easy identification. The reader would be able to drag the books they wanted from their library into the different book shelves. In each book shelves the reader could just scroll left to view all the…

                                  • Categorize Notification

                                    Have a category for personal and a category for clubs all under notifications.

                                    Personal Category would have comments and votes on any of your stories. Plus notifications about dedications, new followers, etc.

                                    Clubs Category would have new comments on discussions, etc.

                                    Would make everything a little more organised on the website. Hope Wattpad considers my idea.

                                      • Why isn't a book showing the number of pages?

                                        please bring back the notification and news feed as it was before. Also, the earlier version of wattpad used to show the total number of pages of a book. As a writer, I found that really helpful. Please incorporate it back. Thirdly, I think the earlier listing of books in the categories was good. The latest thumbnail format is fine. However, I think it should be left to the readers to decide what format they want out of the two.

                                          Usually, when I write I can get a lot of misstakes in to my story. It would be great if:
                                          I could see a red line underneath a wrongly stepped word and maybe something else that could tell me that I've used grammar incorrectly or something.
                                          Just, something that tells me right away of I've done a misstake.
