  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • Book Shelves

        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…

        • DEDICATIONS!

          Okay, first of all, I use the iOS app and I cannot dedicate chapters to my active readers unless I go to safari and request the desktop site!! Please give us an option to attach certain profile(s) into the chapters as dedicating, not only as tagging.

          Also, add a box where we could review all the works dedicated to us, please?

          I’ve been on wattpad for a while now and I remember who much I hated not being able to see media or attach any media into my chapters because I was on the app, but you’ve updated it and…

          • "Not Interested" button

            The main reason I don't read a lot on Wattlad is because I don't get good suggestions.

            I would really like it if I could long-press a story and tap on a button to tell Wattpad I'm not interested. This way, the recommendations would be adjusted and I'd stop seeing the book. There's the same option on YouTube with videos you don't like.

            This would :
            - Allow us to find books we're actually interested in.
            - Give more visibility to the "young" authors. Currently, their books are hidden by all the popular books that don't necessarily interest everybody.
            -…

            • Suggestion Box

              I think that Wattpaders should have a suggestion box on their profile. This suggestion box could be used for anything. You could suggest a book to read, a story to slightly change or even ideas for their next update. To avoid spamming, the box would be set with a rule that you can only post one suggestion every 2 hours. If the suggestions are related or say exactly the same thing multiplie times on the same person profile your waiting period would exceed to 4 hours. And the best thing is all the suggestions are there permanently or until the…

              • to make a co-author option. It is shame that 2 authors can not make a story toghether and collect the benefits and the gratitude together.

                I think that Wattpad should introduce the co-author option. Two authors should be allowed to make a story together. The book should appear on both of their profiles and they should collect together the votes and all the credits. There are many books that were written by 2 or 3 authors and published only by one and that person got all the credits. It is nou fair. On Wattpad we should have the oportunity of co-writing too.

                • Achievements

                  Could you add achievements to Wattpad? Ranging anything from the amount of followers you have to how many views/likes/comments your book have, just tiny achievements that people can see on your page. Something to work towards you know? Little trophies that you can show off. ;)

                  • Private stories

                    There should be private stories. That only YOU can read yourself. You can also choose who can read it, so you tag someone and then only that person and you can read it.

                    • Change color background for creating and lower brightness

                      Since sometime people like to type their story at night with lights off so make it so the brightness can lower and we can change the background of when your creating your story like when your reading and you can change the background color to black and it feels more comfortable.

                        • Audio book format for stories

                          Currently, Wattpad allows writers to post multimedia and text stories. There is also an option to upload a YouTube video at the top. However, my idea is to allow for audio book creations. What I mean by this is that instead of a story in print, the story is created as an audio book from the start.

                          So, when a reader finds a story, they can search for audio books or print books. We can break stories up into these categories. This also then allows more readers who might not have as much time to read to be able to…

                          • common courtesy

                            Wattpad should alert users BEFORE they go and remove one of their stories. Thus letting the user save the story THEY WROTE before Wattpad just takes their hard work and it disappears. If Wattpad feels a story violates their policies, at least give the person who wrote it, a chance to save their hard work for their own reading enjoyment.

                              • Book History

                                I think wattpad should have a book history.
                                Imagine that you're reading a book that you forgot the name and it isn't in your library, you accidently stop reading it, and the book disappears. You search for it, but you can't find it again, and tha makes yousad because you were loving the book.
                                I don't know if this already happened to someone else, it happened to me, twice... and it made really sad, because I was really enjoying it.
                                That's why I think Wattpad should have a history, like on the intenet, to see what books you have been…

                                  I suggest to let users upload original images to wattpad, as I saw lots of times that after being uploaded media files are compressed and their quality is reduced (it's especially visible for profile pictures).

                                    I wish there was a way where we had the option of putting our account on private. I don't like the fact that everyone can see my account that's not following me. I have people that I don't feel comfortable with seeing the books that I add or the people that I follow.

                                      Basically when we want to know how many books we having in our library/ archive, there should be a little number somewhere saying how many books we have. My friend and I always personally wanted this because we're always curious about how many books we have in our library. And I assume other readers may find it helpful.

                                        When you click on your story that you are currently writing it would be great if you could see the total word count of your whole story instead of just the chapter's word count. Because it would help me know if my book's length is long enough or too short! Thanks.

                                        • time stamp each chapter

                                          Make is so that each chapter is stamped with the original time/date is was published because the 'last upadated' feature can be misleading. Especially if an author has just updated their story in over a year making it seem like they update regularly.
