We’ve simplified the way we handle ratings for stories on Wattpad. Every story that is currently R-rated will now be called Mature. All other stories will no longer display a rating; these are appropriate for all readers. This is the first step in our process to simplify rating. Now writers only need to rate their stories when they contain mature content. This change works with existing systems Wattpad uses to detect and appropriately label mature content. For a complete list of what is considered mature content, check the Wattpad Content Guidelines.
