I have just realized what are the changes on the free site Wattpad that had confused me.
I first thought that the “All Rights Reserved” option was no longer available because this option no longer appeared in the sidebar edit mode of a new part of an ongoing story. To compensate for what I thought was a disappearance, I went back through all the chapters of my two current ongoing Wattpad projects and added a rights statement and a copyright at the beginning of each chapter.
Then more recently I realized that I now have to click on the “advanced” choice in the sidebar edit mode to get the “All Rights Reserved” option instead of having that option available in the “basic” choice.
Actually, though, I am glad I added the copyright and rights reserved info to the beginning of each chapter, and I plan to continue doing so. Why? Because it is too easy for people to wrongfully assume that, if something is online, they have the right to use it.
Another change: The “promote” option has been changed to a “share” option and placed in a different location in the sidebar edit mode.
Okay, now that I have solved these two mysteries, I wanted to mention interesting information about how Amazon is incorporating Goodreads, which Amazon now owns, into the new Kindle Fire. Click here to read my Miller Mosaic blog post about this.
