Hi Wattpadders!

We wanted to let you know that tomorrow, January 18th, we are planning some system upgrades that will result in Wattpad being Read Only from approximately 10:00 am - 2:00 pm ET. This means that writing, messaging, following/unfollowing other users, editing your profile, signing up and resetting your password will not work during this time.

While everything is now back to normal and we've resolved all recent technology issues, tomorrow's upgrades will make sure things stay that way. It's important that we implement long-term solutions so this doesn't happen again.

We've heard your concerns about our recent tech challenges and want you to know we are listening. Our team has been working 24/7 to make sure you can create, read, share, and connect as usual. Ensuring every single reader and writer on Wattpad has a great experience is our highest priority, so these technology issues are things we take very seriously.

We would like to reiterate again how sorry we are for these recent issues. The way you and the community use Wattpad is what makes Wattpad so special. And when you aren't able to use the site as usual, it means people can't do the things they love on Wattpad. We come to work every day because we love to see you all thrive, creating, connecting, and sharing with the global Wattpad community. It's something we genuinely care about. We love Wattpad as much as you do, and these challenges have affected us as employees and Wattpad users.

We are so grateful for your patience and support.
