I’ll give it a few days and I’m talking about it with a few other Fantasy authors to see if we can do something that could hopefully get Wattpad’s attention if your efforts don’t work. A plagiarized story does not belong anywhere on Wattpad, especially the Hot List. And especially at number 1.

But hoping Wattpad will listen to you.


#2920

If they need me to screenshot it, I can only really do it here since I don’t have a good way of sending it to their email or the support page.


#2921

Also, there are other accounts with plagiarized work commenting on the conversation board of the reported profile. Took some screenshots of that as well.

is there porn on here


#2926

I’m assuming that you’re talking about purely smutty stories, or media that is pornographic?
I can’t say that there’s none, that’s hard to promise, but what I can say is that Wattpad doesn’t allow it and HQ removes stories that break the Content Guidelines, which you can find here.


#2927

Hey guys. It was suggested that I come here with a question I had.

Before I ask it, I would like to note that I’ve noticed that Wattpad’s current reporting system significantly limits the ability to report things that are against the content rules official laid out—as a specific example, the only sexually-related option I now see in the app’s reporting feature is to report something for pornographic content, but there’s nothing for things like sex trafficking, illegal relationships, etc.

Now there’s only the pornographic-content option, and it requests a specific location for the content.

In any case, even with the current arrangements that make it harder to report anything, wouldn’t something like a smut anthology—self-proclaimed, no less—still be considered a rules violation?


wattpad walkout.

What is the mysterious “New User Tutorial” you can get a badge for completing? I was looking through badges and people seem to be getting it as they join and I’m just confused.


#2930

Hi :smile:

There may be limited options, but if you choose one that relates, in any way, to what you’re reporting, you can select that option and just be as detailed as possible as to what you’re reporting in the body of the report. When asked for a specific location, you can state in which chapters said activities appear, or if it’s the whole story, you can state that too. It usually asks for a link, so you can just put in the link to the story there.

I hope that helps! :xkaydotx:

It’s something that the robotambassador starts with you when you first join the clubs. you can just tag @/RobotAmbassador and say start new user here, or in another thread and the robotambassador should contact you (:


#2931

Thank you–that does help! (And it’s appreciated that you took the time to respond to that side note!) I’d considered doing something like that, but was concerned such reports would get dismissed or sanctioned for not technically fitting the selected category.

Whew, didn’t expect such a quick reply! Now I just need an answer about the anthology matter, and I’ll be all set here. ^-^


#2932

Only a pleasure :bluehearts: and the more detail you give in a report, the better it is, so don’t worry about it ever being off topic/irrelevant, because it will reach the right person, even if it takes a bit of time :xkaydotx:

Edit: about the anthology, you’d be best reporting it! (: I can’t say now if it’s banned or not, having not seen it, but reporting is always the best way to go!


#2933

Is it possible to get an emoji? I knew it was possible in the beta if your IYW thread got the most votes of that week, but that went out of the window when the beta ended


#2934

Is Wattpad working on the so and so mentioned you in a pinned announcement when they really didn’t?

I got this for the official High Fantasy profile and was super excited, thinking they may have mentioned me, but imagine my disappointment when it was just a normal announcement. Grr… This really needs to be fixed. Not cool.


#2935

I sent in mine and they need more people to get noticed to the team.

#2936

Sigh…


#2937

I mean it would make sense depending on is issue just one person or more or a lot. They won’t know anything unless you tell and show them :sweat_smile: (but the bugs are really annoying)


#2938

Well there are other people experiencing it so it’s not just me.

I feel like we’re the ones doing most of the work right now with how often tickets are being sent…


#2939

I do you make monochromatic covers not fail on wattpad like this one?
