Here’s an example of unhelpful feedback:

“I prefer the old profile, switch back to that.”

  1. Order of stories

    Being able to change the order of stories on our profil would be a good idea because the finished book are hidden by the updated ones ! Maybe some users would like to - like you said - promote a story when they want

      • This change has potential but I still have issues with it

        First off, here's what I like. I'm glad that you're putting the stupid activities in a separate column. I HATED the addition of that **** to the profile in the first place and routinely delete it. The only thing I keep is the notice I posted a chapter, and even that is useless because it doesn't actually take people to the chapter when they click on it. But at least people know I posted a chapter, everything else, frankly, nobody needs to see on my message board. I'd rather they not exist in the first place, but at least for…

        • A tab for dedications

          I would appreciate a place on the profile in which all dedications could be collected under, it would make thanking fans easier!

          • I really enjoyed being able to see what others are commenting on without having to click a button to see more.

            Being able to see the comments and the text they're commenting on made my newsfeed more interesting at a glance and I was able to easily find new books to read. Now, I barely click on the see comment button so my newsfeed is just a bunch of pictures of books and I barely go to it now.

            • It still looks like the the new one that no one likes

              We still have no dedication page, nothing for total votes, only one of book that gives full.description when it used to be ten, nothing to track others' last thread comments or threads they've made (like other forums have). And the works age is glitchy as **** is hot. When uploading a new cover, ot remains the same unless you refresh the page so it fools you into thinking it didn't work and the cover thumbnails are too small and ihate the show more. Why can't we just scroll down?

              • It would be great to be able move things on the profile - to rearrange the sections to suit.

                I know this is a lot to code - but on Quotev they allow you to decide what goes where according to left column, right column and even hidden. That way you could put things where you wanted to - if you want your reading list above your Works, you could just rearrange it.

                • The new 'Works'

                  The works page has been updates, and the covers are very small. I enjoyed seeing the covers to my stories in my works, instead of seeing them very small and not being able to read them. Having them bigger was nicer.

                  • Some suggestions

                    I think that the dedications should be brought back like it was in 2013 where users could see all of them in one place. The total number of votes on all stories should also be on display somewhere on the profile (maybe below the date joined) and the total number of pages on a story.

                    • Background size given

                      It would be easier to change the background, if there is a size given which is compatible.

                        • Number of pages are missing from story info

                          After the changes, it was an improvement as opposed to the vagueness that the previous version of the profile carried, However, one thing that I found lacking as number of pages that a book should have. It used to serve as a guide to the progress of the novel or how long it is. Even a short story which has 1 page each for each chapter can be misconceived as a novel in first glace now that the page numbers are missing, it was a useful too for people to see if what they are reading is a long novel…

                              • Search Personal Library/Reading List

                                I have so many stories in my library, like over 2,000 (I should really stop adding books). I use wattpad on the web because my Windows Phone doesn't have a wattpad app. If I want to look for an old book I read a year ago, I have to keep scrolling for so long to finally find it. I hate having to do this and sometimes I end up just logging off of wattpad. Please allow me to search for stories in both the library and my reading list.

                                  • Please make it so messages posted in Conversations retain their formatting

                                    I love the new layout of the profile, but when posting messages on the Conversations page, the formatting disappears and the entire message is condensed into one giant paragraph.

                                      I'm really sorry, but I still don't like the new layout. I prefer the 2012 layout, wherein everything can be seen at one glance. It was much simpler and cleaner than the current layout.

                                      • I am confused about the described changes to the profile. Is this on the desktop/website, or the iphone app or the android app?

                                        I don't see anything on my profile in the website that looks like the images given for the new profile look. Where am I supposed to find this? I am looking at the https://www.wattpad.com/user/<username> page and it looks the same as always.

                                        • Unable to change stories' language

                                          After the latest update, I am unable to change the language of stories on my discover page. Is there anybody out there experiencing the same problem? :/
