Hello! and welcome to the attpad Community Forums/Clubs!
This space is an open, friendly environment where you can come to chat to other writers and readers, socialise, make friends, and find help with any aspect to do with your writing and reading experience on Wattpad!
If you have any questions that you’d like to ask, and by any, I mean any, feel free to post in this thread: Ask the Ambassadors Anything, or ask any of the Community Ambassadors, a list of who you’ll find in the first comment of the Ask the Ambassadors Anything thread
Should you, however, come across something in the threads that you’d like to report, or if you find something inappropriate or find some spam, feel free to click on the “flag” button. You’ll find this option on every comment and every thread, and it’s shaped exactly like a flag.
Once something is flagged, the Community Ambassadors are alerted and the situation is looked at. If the comment or thread is deemed inappropriate, action will be taken.
Sidebar: If you are a New User, please note that you cannot flag posts - there’s an easy solution, you’ve just got to raise your trust level. To do this, have a look at this thread
Once you’ve clicked on the flag, you’ll get four options:
Off Topic/Spam - this suggests that the comment is not relevant to the thread it was made in, or the thread does not belong in the club it was posted in. It can also suggest that the comment or thread is being used for advertising in the incorrect place, not useful to the discussion, or purposely made to derail a thread.
Well-being or Behaviour - this suggests that the thread or comment contains language or phrases that could be triggering to the Community, or that the user may need some specialist help from the Wattpad Community Team.
Something Else - this flag allows you to write specifically what’s going on and send the flag in - NOTE: this option sends a Personal Message to all the Community Ambassadors, so don’t get a fright when you see a PM open up
You can choose whichever option suits the flag best!
FLAGGING YOUR OWN THREAD
If you’d like a thread you’ve created closed, or looked at by one of the Community Ambassadors, feel free to flag it too, and one of us will be there to help you as soon as we can!
If you prefer not to flag a post or thread, feel free to request help in the Ask the Ambassadors Anything thread.
Flagging is the best way to report something, or get a mod’s attention, as the Community Ambassadors will be notified immediately and issues can be dealt with quickly.
Tagging us is super great too, but sometimes the mod who’s tagged may not be online for some time, and the flag won’t get dealt with in a timely manner, so flagging is the best way to go!
If you feel that an action taken against one of your comments or threads was unfair, unwarranted, or you need further explanation, feel free to speak to the mod who took the action, post in the Ask the Ambassadors Anything thread, or talk to @KatherineArlene about it
Feel free to ask any questions you may have! We will gladly help in any way we can!
