A couple years ago, Wattpad decided to change their ranking system by letting stories rank in their hashtags. While I see the appeal behind this because I believe The old ranking system wasn’t very fair because of how long you could rank, I believe it couldnt stayed the same and been tweaked!
Here are some simple ways they could’ve improved it (as stated by @saintc)
- Only ongoing books can rank in popular in their genre
- Completed books can rank in trending in their genre
- Only newly updated books show up in fresh
- Premium section only for paid stories
- Stories can’t rank high for extreme periods of time
I don’t know how to reach out to them and I doubt this is on their list to fix things, so let’s have a discussion here! What do you guys think? How do you feel about it? What else would you like to see get fixed?
