  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.

    • 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...

      • 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

        • Add Bookmarks

          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.

          • Videos

            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.

              • Turn off notifications for certain stories of your choosing

                This suggestion is mostly for authors with a large following, but it can be for anyone. There should be an option on your stories (edit mode) that turns off notifications and emails if you want to stop receiving them from that one story. If you want notifications again you just uncheck it. This would help me, who gets spammed with thousands of comments on a story I no longer have any interest in, save a lot of time and enjoy reading what I want to read instead of what I'm being spammed with. I like to check all my comments…

                • Narrow down the Genres so more stories can hit The Hot List

                  A lot of stories don't hit The Hot List, and they get drowned out because the genres are not narrowed down. For example, the Romance genre - this genre is popular. There is more than one type of romance novel. I'm not saying we should have subgenres, I'm saying we should have more specific genres so more stories can hit The Hot List.

                  For example:
                  Romantic Comedy
                  Paranormal Romance
                  Dark Fantasy
                  Erotic Fiction
                  New Adult (Please, for goodness sake)
                  Young Adult
                  Romantic Fanfiction
                  Paranormal Fanfiction

                  More Genres - who's with me?

                  • Make two parts of category Fanfiction

                    EN/CZ/ES/FR/DE

                    EN - In the category: Fanfiction are basically two kinds of fanfictions – fandom fanfictions (books, movies, TV series...) and celebrity fanfictions about singers, actors, youtubers.... There are much more of the second kind and it’s hard to find some fandom fanfiction. So I think it will be better if the category would be divided in 2 sections – fandom fanfiction and celebrity(or well-known people) fanfiction.

                    CZ - V kategorii Fanfiction jsou v podstatě dva hlavní druhy fanfikcí - fanfikce na fandomy (knihy, filmy, seriály...) a fanfikce na osobnosti (zpěváky, herce, youtubery...). Mnohem víc je zde těch druhých a…

                        • Don't Suggest Stories That I Deleted From My Library

                          I have noticed that stories that I have deleted from my library end up showing in my reading suggestions and continue reading suggestions if they were updated recently. I don't know about you but I usually delete a story if I dislike it and not because I want to pick it up in the future. I would like not to have repeat offenders, thus making stories shown much more likely to be read and enjoyed.

                          • Love Meter

                            Hello, I write almost only romance stories, so I started using my own "invention", its something I call "Love Meter". Although its something you could also do with rating story as a Mature, I prefer also this way:
                            Its a Meter, that tells you how many *** scenes are in the story. Currently it has three leves I use:
                            Love Meter: ♥ (Or level 1 only): Story contains only sweet romance scenes, often endings only with kisses. Main hero/heroine is usually teenager or really young adult.
                            Love Meter: ♥♥ (Level 2): This story contains *** scenes, I usually rank them…

                            • We should have the library more organized.

                              We should be able to organize out library because I'm not going to lie, I have over what seems like fifty books in my library all scatter everywhere. Their should be a feature where you have the ability to organize your library in sections.

                              For example, a user can put all of their romance books in a section that the user might name 'romance' or all of the slowly updating books in a section called 'WIP's' just so that the user can remember and everything will be more easier to navigate.

                              • Character profiles

                                I would be so beyond grateful if you could add a function where you can create Character profiles for your book.

                                People under estimate how important these are, but they are unbelievably helpful when making realistic characters... Even if it was just a simple personality chart I think it would be amazing for the Wattpad community...

                                • Create a editing page.

                                  I think it would be ABSOLUTELY fantastic if you created a page on watt pad that's a editing page. A place where you can send your incomplete storie to another writer to help you on it, if you feel the grammar is wrong or the story has a glitch and you need help. And make it like you can chose the editor. Please vote if you think it's a good idea for inexperienced writers like myself to get feedback on your non finished story.

                                  • quit adding everyother genre

                                    I see you guys added fanfiction to the list of categories but still no LGBT category and its 2015. I'm afraid to say this but to me you guys seem Republican on not adding a LGBT rather then Democratic and add it.

                                    Further more if changes are not met people might take this to the news and i think you dont want that to happen.

                                    In closing The Lgbt novels here on wattpad have the right to have their category shown on the site. So please add it or lose users who write Lgbt related as well as many others…

                                      It would be an option for writers to show off your story to be published, but not yet available to read, so the story could gain followers before its publication and that would be easier to track.

                                      One of the writers I know adds a book and instead of first chapter she puts the character list with description and announces, that the first chapter will be x day x month, on when some certain story will be completed. I want to do the similar thing, but I feel like it would be unfair, because the character list already gets the…

                                      • Should be able to like a comment

                                        So what if you agree with someone's comment, but there is no point replying to them saying "I agree" (because that would most likely annoy the person who posted that comment in the first place). It would be helpful if you can 'like' a comment, such as u like an Instagram post.

                                        • Fix the What's Hot section

                                          As of June 21, 2016, the What's Hot section was changed, getting rid of the previous system it used. The What's Hot section used to be organized by rank.
