I’m pretty sure I saw somewhere that forum users aren’t allowed to post links from other websites in the forum. Is this true?
I’m currently writing a book on Wattpad that I’d like to share. I haven’t published it yet but I will soon. I’m wondering if I’m allowed to post the link of my book here? If not, am I allowed to mention the title here so that you guys can search it up and read it?
Yes, this is partly true. What we say in the rules is that:
This means that you aren’t allowed to share any links to websites containing or allowing you to share personal information, or to websites that allow you to contact and talk with others.
Of course, you are also not allowed to share any links with content that break any of the other guidelines that is mentioned on the topic I quoted either.
So, you are allowed to post outside links, as long as they are appropriate. But make sure they are relevant to the discussion and on topic, as in related to Hopscotch.
Some websites have been specifically clarified or denied. You can find those here.
Reading about the Wattpad story, it sounds like something that wouldn’t be allowed to share here since I believe you can comment on Wattpad stories and follow each other, so it’s essentially like a social media. Those types of accounts aren’t allowed to be shared as I mentioned earlier.
With that said though, we have a category on the forum called Writer’s nook, which specifically is for sharing stories you have made with others! Note that you have to code projects for your story in Hopscotch though.
Here is a link to more information about Writer’s nook:
