First, happy Memorial day! Let’s honor the soldiers and salute!
Now on to topic. I’m not gonna reveal the name but as you all are writers/readers it’s important to have your opinion and feelings on this. So here’s what user said.
"So last night, I got a random idea. You know how the Academy Awards has the Golden Raspberry Awards a.k.a “The Razzies” proceed it every year. What if the Wattys/Fiction Awards has its own version. “The Wazzies” or something like that. It’s by no means to make fun of bad stories, but to appreciate the other side of the best stories Wattpad can offer and for people to just have a nice laugh. Some awards can be like:
Oh, no! I got kidnapped/sold/adopted by who?! - The Worst Cliche Award
This story has how many reads?! - The Infamy Award
We get it. You’re a big fan. - The Worst Fanfic Award
And everyone was dead. - The Worst Horror Award
There can’t be this many hot/rich/charming guys out there. - The Worst Romance Award
etc. etc. etc.
So, yeah. If this can become a thing, I’d love to jump on board.
Keep in mind “It’s by no means to make fun of bad stories, but to appreciate the other side of the best stories Wattpad can offer and for people to just have a nice laugh.”
I think it sounds cool but the wording needs change as it’s not the best choice and has to have clear definition that its not intent to hurt them. But on other hand even with explaining some users still be outraged and get hurt by it. (or be a troll like that one user who attacked the LGBT+ profile for the + problem or something )
- Yes, I think it’s good
- No, that’s offensive
