ads on wattpad (or are you premium?)


#21

And we do have the Premium for those who want to go Ad-free :slight_smile:

I get videos when I read on my computer (and on mobile browser, but I can easily scroll past them there).

They’ve crashed my browser a couple times, actually.


#23

The Stars and Futures aren’t getting money from this. There are video ads on books not owned by Stars and Futures. :confused:


#24

Yikes. I only get videos on mobile, most of my web ads are static.


#25

I can’t even ‘read’ (go through chapters to reply to comments) my own book without being forced to watch an ad every two chapters. :joy:


#26

Stars and Futures get nothing from the ads though. They’re in everyone’s book.

People know how to use ad block, people would rather read offline. If anything it’s killing reader-writer interaction since you can’t comment if you read offline.

IDK there are a lot of ways to make people WANT to watch ads. On Tapas if you watch ads you get coins to buy preimum novels.

Interrupting a reader every two chapters to watch the same ad is a little too much.


#27

Same. Seriously, these ads are killing all my motivation to actually read on Wattpad. Ads are fine, but can we get some that don’t hijack my device? K. Thanks.


#28

Does anyone else get those pop-up ads sometimes while scrolling in their notifications? Like not even in a book.

The app is such a mess. :sob:


#29

Can’t say I’ve had any of those thank fuck


#30

I’ve had it happen a few times where I’ll be scrolling in my notifications and an ad hijacks my screen, refuses to skip, and just takes a long asf time to go away.


#31

They need to get their ads in line. This is getting beyond annoying :open_mouth:


#32

Imma be honest, some months ago I stumbled upon way more ads than I do now. Now I only see on the homepage. (on the app)


#33

I’ve had things pop up before that were like “congrats iPhone user you have won ___”.


#34

@AWFrasier Agreed.

@Makaylasophia Oh my gosh.

I had that happen, too!

It wouldn’t let me “x” out of it.

I could only push “ok”


#35

Was it… 10 months ago?

#36

Possibly less than 10 months. But now authors that used to have ads between their stories don’t have them anymore.


#37

Ads everywhere. :joy:

Like I get that ads are inevitable, but please don’t shove them in my face between every chapter.


#38

I don’t think I ever had unskippable ads.
I found a hack to skip ads anyway. Haven’t used it in a long time, though, as I said.


#39

I’m too forgetful to do that. r.i.p.


#40

Are there are ads no matter who the author of the story is? (I mean, popular or not popular)
