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 I think stories that haven't been updated should be at least eliminated from search, and possibly even unpublished (but not deleted, so the author can come back to it and finish it if they wish.)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

                    • 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.

                      • 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.

                        • Photos in PM

                          Private messaging would be so much better for users to chat with each other.. IF WE COULD SEND PHOTOS (or at least emoji/stickers) more often than not, I'm talking with a user from the other side of the world, and we'll be on the subject of say, our countries. They go all gushy fan girl when they find I'm from New Zealand. I must admit, the area where I live is particularly beautiful... I just wish I could show them! Words can only describe so much... Besides, they say a picture tells a THOUSAND words!

                          • 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…

                            • Let us rate the books.

                              The readers should be able to rate the books as a whole and not by voting for each chapter since a lot of us are reading them offline, thus preventing us for voting each chapter/update.
