Dismiss Recommendations

#1

Let us dismiss recommendations we aren’t interested in. It’s been driving me crazy.


#2

I agree with this. I love when stories are recommended to me that in no way relate to anything have ever read or would read.


#3

:rofl: Yes! especially when you do BCs!


#4

Awe but how will I know I might be interested in reading myself if my books aren’t recommended to me?


#5

I love that as well. “Well, I certainly hope you think that’s my kind of story, as I am the one that wrote it.”


#6

I would just love it if someone one day didn’t recognize it was their book (like maybe it was one they wrote a long time ago) and so they started to read it and were all “Wait a minute! SOMEONE STOLE MY STORY!”


#7

I get recommended Stories from my other account all the time.

OH another thing that’s needs to be fixed. On the Website if I try to delete books out of my library they reappear. Extremely frustrating.

This is a bug! Usually I’d recommend creating a new topic if you have another idea, but we want to make this a bug-free zone! If you’re having bug-related troubles, send in a ticket to support! https://support.wattpad.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

Please try to keep all bug-related conversations in a different area, as we want to make this category work, but we do need some help from you guys keeping it in line! All topics should be about a single feature suggestion, and if you have another feature suggestion/thoughts on another feature? Create a new topic! :pray:


#9

Some of my stories in my library won’t delete or even go to the archive. I wonder if it’s a similar issue. I’ll look into it!


#10

I just looked and did they finally get rid of that “people you should follow” area? I didn’t see it on the main Wattpad.com page with all the reading lists. If so…thank God! I hated that area :laughing:


#11

It would be great if they could make it where you’re able to hit like an x kinda like youtube lets you for their recommended.


#12

Or something like “see more of this” or “see less of this” I might actually be more inclined to look at the reading lists if I could finally get them to lean toward books I’d actually consider reading. I’m just not interested in fan fic, bad boys, CEOs, and werewolves, but I get those books recommended to me a lot At least I did when I last looked at the reading lists on the main page which I will fully admit has been a few years. I basically stopped going to that page when it became nothing but readings lists. Now I just go to my profile directly.


#13

For some reason my mind didn’t recognize this as a bug xD


#14

I REALLY REALLY MISS The homepage being what people post on their wall, Barely anyone actually uses the reading recommendation stuff.


#15

I understand that recommendations aren’t based on nothing, but it would be useful to be able to indicate “not interested”.

I know on Youtube they have that. I can click their little “…” further options icon, then select “Not Interested” and that recommendation disappears. It’s briefly replaced by a box that has options like “tell us why”. Then I can tell them whether it was the content, or the creator, or maybe the previous thing that recommendation was based on that I didn’t like. Or, I can choose not to say why.

Some reasons might be that the recommendation is based on something that was read as part of a service or a book club and so doesn’t represent something I normally would want to look at.


#16

Or an ad blocker for promoted stories? Or maybe I’m just tired.:confused:


#17

Can you explain this idea a little more? I think I’m a little confused


#18

I’d actually forget my books existed if they weren’t constantly recommended to me.

Thank you Wattpad, for reminding me books that I wrote are still on Wattpad and that I would maybe like them too.


#19

Ah it’s a reference to the Firefox add on called Ublock origin. Essentially it defaults to blocking most advertisements, but you can also individually create a blocker for advertisements that the software had missed.

I use it to block follower recommendations on Twitter.


#20

I’d love for all the tags generated by my recommendations to be shown on my homepage in some sort of editable format. That way, I can click to exclude one of them and when I do, the page could adjust its recommendations to get rid of everything containing that tag.

I realize it’s like, a bajillion tags since the homepage is endless.
