@jeidafei That's true. I mean, they are doing their best to let all of us shine. Maybe in a few years, they will have more languages.

The sheer entitlement of all these people complaining XD. 
          	  
          	  As far as I remember, other languages were only added in very recent years. They can't even read and judge all the English submissions themselves; they must use AI screening. 
          	  
          	  This is not discrimination. Have you considered the possibility that they have tried accepting minor languages in recent years, and decided they don't have the capacity to do it well? So they focused on the major languages? That they have judges for?
          	  
          	  No, I don't expect Wattys will 'die' because they only accept stories in major languages. They receive waaaay too many stories as it is, that's why the guidelines get ever more stringent, only accepting newer stories and the like.
          	  
          	  Wattpad is a business. They're based in Canada. They have their target customers. Most of them speak English. There are also a growing base of Filipino readers, etc. Like, I'm Thai. I've never seen another Thai person on this platform in my 12 years here. But this is the largest writing platform in the world and I want to write here. What did I do? Scream and whine for TheWattys to create a WattysThai profile and accept Thai stories? No, I learned to write in English! And post my Thai stories on a Thai platform! 
          	  
          	  Don't you have writing platforms in your country? Your language? Go there! All writing platforms don't have to and cannot cater to all your demands. This is life. Not everything will go your way. Get used to it.

Hello, 
          Actually my story is eligible for the Watty's 2024 but whenever I click 'Enter This Story' and an error shows up and this is what is written 
          
          Web page not available
          The web page at https://www.wattpad.com/ could not be loaded because:
          
          net::ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECT
          
          
          
          I have put a report about this but nothing happened so I thought to directly convey this message to you. I cant load the entry form so please tell me what I should do.?I have already waited for 24 hours and tried logging out and then logging in but nothing happened it's the 3rd day that this is happening so please tell me what I should do. 
          
          Is there any alternative way to put my story in Watty's If not, please tell me a solution...
          
          Thank you so much

@marsnoodles_21 - if your story is a fanfic then it's not eligible for entry.

I need support with submitting my story for Wattys. It's an ongoing story and the banner still hasn't appeared. I did make edits to my story only to correct grammar, could this prevent the banner from not showing up?

If I don’t see the banner thingy, does that mean I’m not eligible to participate?
