Honestly I didn't think this would happen so soon. I didn't truly expect the scale of this madness but I need to let those who do read my book know.

An awesome writer that I share a writing server with, hinanura recently found out about a website called teenfic.com that has been mass copy and pasting what appears to be all stories on Wattpad including the number of reads and likes.

This leads me to believe that it was some sort of hacker into the Wattpad database where someone used an all command to just completely copy them over but I can't confirm this. It's just my guess.

Because of this, it also includes my stories as well as all of your favourite authors.

Here is some screenshotted proof.

However, if you try to click on the link where the writer's name is, this is what happens

It redirects you to alibaba.com and you get an error 404 notice.

Unfortunately the website has no way to contact the creators from what I know. So what can we as the Wattpad community do about this?

1: Let your friends and any writers you know know about this.

2: If you're a writer yourself, spread the knowledge through your own book.

3: There is a petition going on to try to shut down teenfic.net. If you could urge people to sign this, we as the Wattpad community may be able to stop this for good!

IF YOU WANT THE LINK TO THE PETITION IN BETTER FORM AND REDIT POST ON THIS SUBJECT, PLEASE CHECK OUT DivinityinPhantoms's MESSAGE BOARD 

Thankyou for taking the time to read this. I know you were probably expecting a chapter and not an author's note. Chapter 5 is in the workings and should be posted soon enough. Thankyou for being so understanding.
