  1. 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.

    • 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 I think stories that haven't been updated should be at least eliminated from search, and possibly even unpublished (but not deleted, so the author can come back to it and finish it if they wish.)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.

      • Checking

        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.

        • Medals On Books

          I suggest that you attach certain "medals" to books that have passed a certain number of reads. For example, you should get a bronze for passing 100K reads, a silver for 500K reads, a gold for 1M reads, and a platinum for 5M reads and above.

          • View How Many People Put Your Story in Their Library

            It would be awesome to see how many people have put your story in their library because it motivates writers to write when they know they have people who they know are actually waiting for an update.

              • Author's Note box!

                Adding an author's note box on the side (for the web) or just by clicking a designated button (for the app) would make reading stories smoother and have no interruptions. Some authors tend to put author's notes in between the story or at the end and to me that comes out as a bit messy to look at and it sometimes ruins the feel of the story, so adding an author's note box that people can chose whether or not to read and look at would be great.

                Thank you! :)

                • Editing

                  I think there should be a feature where authors can allow readers to suggest grammatical edits to their story. The author can choose whether or not to allow this peer-editing feature. The edits that readers make will not change within the story, but rather these edits be sent to the author's "peer-editing section" (or something of the sort), and the author can choose if they wish to make these changes.

                  • Instead of rounding off the reads of our books to the nearest thousand or million, display the actual number.

                    A lot of us who write on Wattpad like to keep track of the reads we get per day. But some of us don't get hundreds and thousands of reads in a single day which makes it impossible to know how many reads we've gotten if the number of reads we have is rounded off to the nearest thousand or million. As for the demographic, it also doesn't show how many reads we get per day.
                    So what I'm asking is for Wattpad to display the actual number of reads we have bellow our books or to show them in…

                    • Show Us How Many Pages A Book Has

                      In the new design I can only seem to find a chapter count, which doesn't tell me much about the length of a story. In deciding what to read I might be interested in a short drabble or a long novel and I can't properly tell between the two these days.

                      Alternatively, an overall word count could work. I would simply like something to hint at the length of the book I'm reading, and chapters/parts don't because they're defined by the user.

                      [I said Web as the category but I think it reflects both apps as well, though I could…

                      • See who has Voted? (Overview for each chapter)

                        It would be nice to see who has voted for a chapter. It can only be seen in your mentions. But it would be nice, to see all voters per chapter at once by clicking on a button. (maybe for authors only in the statistics)

                        • Put a setting that changes the color of the story's background. And reader's prefered fonts.

                          Like in the mobile versions. So that the users can customize their profile and read comfortably with their desired color, for example, I'm more comfortable reading context in black, with white letters. because it's too bright to read in a white background. Please put a settings like that, it'll really help a lot of readers. Thank you.

                          • All readers to 'Follow' a story

                            Allow readers to register to 'follow' a story which is being updated - so that they would get some kind of notification and/or email specially when a story is updated. Since story updates came out of the normal notifications list, my readership has dropped and I think it's because people aren't seeing that something has been updated. I follow a lot of people, so updates are quickly buried in the newsfeed and they're not showing under notifications anymore. I've had comments from some of my readers saying they didn't realise I'd updated or they would have read the update sooner.

                            • allow mature rated works to be seen by users older than 16 or 18

                              Stop treating stories with graphic contents as dirty little secrets. Instead let these stories be seen by those on Wattpad who are older than the age of sixteen or eighteen.
                              Another option is to add a filter, allowing users to choose whether they want to see mature stories in their hot list and recommendation list.
                              Also, to help users distinguish a mature story from other stories, the font color of their titles should be changed to red. This can serve as a precaution for users before they click on a story.

                                I want to be able to add my book to 2 categories, like i was able in the past. In that way, if we are writing fanfics, we will be able to describe the type of fanfic (romance, vampire, humor,..), or even if we are writing another type of story, we could describe it more.

                                • Make more individualized profiles

                                  With this cite, as a creator, I can make so many beautiful things, but any writer has his own style, own view of things and personal preferences.
                                  I suggest to divide profile into number of sections, with every one having the ability to have its own background, be moved across profile page, have several options of shaping and sizing, have differenr colour of text, its size and type. And more options for background - to choose colour and, if possible, animation.
                                  Which sections were referred to previously: news feed (board where I can write quick notes to all writers), description…

                                    I think the writer of the story reads shouldn't count. Whenever I preview my story before I publish it, it counts it as a read. I think we should know the exact amount of reads we get

                                      A thesaurus/dictionary for when you're writing and feel like you're repeatedly using the same phrases. Also, if you don't know what a word means on Wattpad, you can highlight the word and be able to get a definition of it.

                                        I make high quality, hd covers, but when you place them on the covers, they are always blurry and not good quality. i hope you can chage it to a high hd quality for the covers. This is in general for searching stories or in the library. Please make it better quality.

                                        • Delete Confirmation

                                          When we want to delete a story, it should make us confirm our username AND password, instead of confirming our username twice. This way, no "hackers" can come and delete our work. (The username is public, anyway, so there's no point in confirming it twice.)
