It amuses me greatly their solution to the ongoing problems on the Wattpad forums wasn't to try and fix them, but close them completely and take away the only outlet smaller writers had to get noticed. They have basically killed any hope of a new writer getting traction over there unless they're very lucky. And to not even give people a warning so they can make arrangements to discuss things with friends elsewhere was kinda a bad move. They just locked 'em up and threw away the key.
I can't offer much insight to tapas since I'm still trying to figure it all out myself LOL I'm still unsure if I'll move over here full time from Wattpad because I do have a MUCH bigger fanbase on Wattpad vs here, and I'm just not entirely sure if I'll ever muster the energy to do what I need to do to get a fan base on here. Not to mention I've been struggling to write in general so that alone could take me off all writing sites. But in my short time here everyone has been welcoming so I'd say just dip your feet in the water and see how you like it. I also managed to get both books that I've posted here featured so that was awesome! Though I will say I hate the character limit and not sure if that will ever change for me I just might at least get better at figuring out where to break up my chapters to work within their bite sized limits. Posting chapter parts dailly (I'm not sure I'll ever get into calling them episodes LOL) helped boost me quite a bit, it dropped a lot when I cut down to twice a week because I didn't want to burn off all the chapters too fast while I try to psych myself up to break up the chapters to a sequel for one of the books i have up LOL I needed all the time I could buy myself for that
