I don’t know if it is the same thing in the Wattpad English community, but on the French side, since a week, there are many, many, many accounts that are getting deleted for explicit reasons. People are complaining because many of those accounts were Wattpaders with a least 1k of followers. They were writing well, but… writing explicit stuff like very erotic novel, sexual initiation like Story of O. So yes, Wattpad considered those as pornographic even though they were well written. I understand this. Wattpad needs to put limits somewhere and some very good content are not covered by those limites unfortunately.
Because of that, I saw a lot of users going on Scribay to write, one of Wattpad’s competitor.
I find this very sad that people are starting to quit Wattpad and I also thinkg that even thought a big part of Wattpad’s community is made up of minors, there is also a lot of adults ont the website who wants to read about more explicit and adult stuff.
So, that is why I thought about this idea :
In order to allow more explicit and adult stuff on the platform (like Story of O for the example), Wattpad could add an identity and age verification (with a picture of identity piece) that would bring access to that smutt stuff. Some pornographic websites are already doing this and people would be allowed to blur their personal informations in order to only keep name and age visibles.
That’s my idea ! It’s not perfect, but it could possibily be great and enlarges Wattpad possibilities. If you have another idea, don’t hesitate !
