About the App/Site Feedback category


Have you thought up a cool new feature that you think would better your Wattpad experience, but don’t know how to get someone from HQ to notice? Have some thoughts on a new feature we’ve already put out and want to share it with us? Welcome to Wattpad App & Site Feedback!

Please note this is not for anything bug related. If you’re having a bug-related issue, please contact us at Wattpad Support! https://support.wattpad.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

How do you use this category?

  1. Make sure to search and check to see if someone else is already talking about your suggestion/feedback. We want to foster conversation, so please don’t make multiple topics on the same feature suggestion!

No one’s talking about it yet?

  1. Create a new topic. Make sure your title clearly represents the feature you’re talking about!

  2. Tag your topic!

The best way to make sure we see your thread? Tag it! We’ve provided tags based on the area on Wattpad, making it easier for us and yourselves to filter feedback and find what we’re looking for. Don’t know what tag to use? We’ve got you covered!

Once you’ve tagged your topic, share your thoughts! Give as much detail as possible. We want to know how this affects your Wattpad experience. The better you sell your case, the more likely we’ll take notice! You might also see that I’ve edited your post, this is most likely just to change the tag to a better fitting option.

Please keep topics only about one feature suggestion! Want to get off-topic? Create a new topic!

Hope to hear from you soon!

Is there a topic already for the current plagiarism reporting feature? If so, I’ll reply there. If not, do I need to wait a certain number of days before starting a thread, or am I just not understanding how to do this?



@gabby I have a suggestion.

You can consider adding the pixel size (eg: 512 x 800) in this article so that it states the required sizes and clears the doubts for anyone when they upload pictures in their stories. Larger than normal pictures can trigger error messages from Wattpad, which may lead to confusion - https://support.wattpad.com/hc/en-us/articles/201376654-Add-Media-to-your-Story

Underneath the third point. Something on the lines of this-
4. Use [pixel size] for best results.


This is great, thank you! Sorry for the late response. I’ll be adding this! :blush:

#feedback_etc New look white background
There should be an option for the overall site as well as on the app in general to select a muted background, just like that choice is available while reading books in the app. I find my eyes get tired too quickly with it so brightly white. So a few options of background color for both the web app and the mobile apps, across the entire user platform (i.e. not just restricted to the reading experience) would be very much appreciated.


Kermorgan is gentle. The white background is WAY too bright. I think I’ll cry tears of blood for the rest of my life.
