You’re totally allowed to ask questions. Links to game sites, safe or not are not allowed in the forums. Anything that directs people to do things off Wattpad is not allowed. So any links you post should be Wattpad centered and help the community with reading, writing or graphic design.

Ah, ok. Is it ok to say NAMES of game sites though? But not post a link.

You can talk about them in a conversation, but we ask that people not recruit people to join them on those sites as that is also not allowed minus the links.
