It’s been a long time since I’ve really been on the threads (not since they got rid of the old forums and made this instead).
As my title suggests, I have three questions. The first is: How do I apply to be on the Featured List? I thought it was adding a featured tag, but I’ve heard that it’s now an application, and I can’t find anything recent about the list on the threads. If anyone could help me out with this it’s much appreciated!
The second is, two different accounts reached out to me (with the same copy pasted message of "I read your story, love it and we’ve got a new site and we want you on it.) The site is called Xnovel. I’m assuming it’s a straight up scam (by assume I mean I’m 99.999% sure), but just want to make sure these things aren’t legit.
The third is: I saw a website that stole my story off of Wattpad (word for word), as well as countless other Wattpad stories. I want to get my story taken down off of the site, but I’m not sure how. Do I have to file a DMCA takedown or something with Wattpad? Cause if so, that seems like a lot of work for something that might not even be effective. I really don’t like that my story has been taken, and I know it happens, but will Wattpad do anything to help or no?
Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks!
