Hi Allen, just wondering if you and the Wattpad team have ever considered putting a word count on the mobile app so the people who mainly use their phones to upload their chapters have a fair idea how long it is? Keep up the great work! Wattpad really is the best!!
This week is Wattpad's 8th anniversary and to celebrate, we're shining the spotlight on our community - the readers and writers who make Wattpad so special. 

We're asking Wattpadders around the world to post selfies using the hashtag #iamWattpad. We want to show the world what the Faces of Wattpad look like, so we'll be creating a beautiful selfie-collage to unveil at the end of the week. 

Please feel free to participate on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram!
