Hi Mr.Lau, I'd just like to let you know about a problem I've been experiencing with the site. When I try to add a new part to my stories, the page refreshes. When I do so from the Story details, it makes a new story. Can you please fix this problem ?

Hi I just want to say thank you so much for founding Wattpad. Wattpad literally saved my life. 9 months ago I found out that I had Anxiety Disorder. I was so alone at that time and I couldn't tell my family what was wrong with me. If it weren't for Wattpad I would probably be insane or cried myself into oblivion. Wattpad serves as an outlet and friend to those who feel like they can't express themselves in life. I read Wattpad everyday and I would literally die of boredom without it. Thank you for giving millions of people hope and inspiration.

Mr. Lau I just wanna report this thing. When I try to see story detail on the stories on my library, it always lead me to the dicover and not to the story's detail. This always happen on mobile. Please do something about it. Thank you.
