About Community

The Community area on Wattpad allows for groups of users to gather together to discuss a variety of topics and discussions. The link for Community is: https://www.wattpadwriters.com.

Community was created by Wattpad staff, but users can generate their own discussions by creating threads within Community topics.

Community Conduct

Community forums can be great fun on Wattpad.  You can meet other users, make some new friends, and find some great stories to read.  You can even tell others about your own stories, or other great stories that you have come across on Wattpad.  In addition, our Ambassadors always have some "fun discussions'' to share.  If you feel like it, you can start some "fun discussions" too.

There is some Community etiquette which we would like to point out, in addition to our general Code of Conduct rules that must always be adhered to on Wattpad.  These Community specific notes will help the Community Forums be a fun experience for everyone.

 

1. Please promote your story only in the #share-your-story threads in each Community category.

Community is designed for all members to hangout, to have fun and to meet some new friends so please post all story promotions in the single discussion thread pinned to the top of each Community category only. The Share Your Story threads are pinned for easier access. Any story promotion posted outside of these discussion threads will be moved without notice.  Any unrelated ad-post within a discussion will be removed immediately--this is also not limited to spamming excessively with self-advertising posts within 24 hours.

 

2. Contribute positively to the discussions

There are many topics you can participate in, or even start one of your own.  One thing to keep in mind though is to be a supportive and positive contributor.  You can definitely have your own ideas and opinions, but it is very important to respect the differing opinions of others too.  So, if ever there is a disagreement, try to smile and deal with the issue in a civil way.  If you need help, you can contact our Ambassadors or Wattpad for assistance by using the 'Flag' function. Flagging a post will alert anyone with Admin rights that there is an issue regarding a post or conversation and one of the team will look into it.

 

3. Play the game fairly

Don't we all love votes, facebook likes and tweets?  Doesn't it feel great when we see our stories getting more and more support from the community? It feels great when someone loves our works, when they comment on them, vote on them or even promote them to their own fans.  But then, will we feel the same kind of "thrill" if we know that the votes we have got on our stories were just some "trades" we have struck with other users?  Is this fair to others who do not participate in this kind of trade? I think we all know the answers :) after all, it's a violation of our Club Guidelines anyway. You are more than welcome to encourage people to support you but any kind of vote trade is not allowed and our Community moderators will close those discussions without notice.

Have Fun!
