Also, to the entire thread:
Wattpad is far from perfect but it is one of the few places on the internet like it. Where you will find such a diverse, helpful, engaging community which is largely the point. I’ll take a little bit of the bad and not complain because of all the good I’m getting out of it. What one person finds distasteful and cringe-worthy, another person might fall in love with. I don’t think any one person or group has the right to say what should and shouldn’t be on the site other than the Wattpad people themselves. And if they allow the stories, especially after being reported and finding that they were NOT a violation, then what is the problem? If it’s that annoying, you could always build your own story sharing platform and ban the content you deem unworthy of your eyes. I think it’s odd to say that you want to see MATURE stories and then get picky when you’re shown every story that is tagged MATURE. Don’t click on them. Maybe wattpad needs a broader tag range for mature stories, but I still don’t see the problem. If you have mature stories unchecked then you shouldn’t be seeing them. If you are, report them. What else can really be done besides banning mature stories altogether which is insane to me? Unless they want only people under eighteen on the site.
