Dear authors and readers, please take note of the two announcements:
1) There is a bug in the latest WPC which was published recently (#141 Royal Romance and #142 Space Thriller). As you know, the rules state that only newly published works solely created for the contest are eligible for the WPCs, but unfortunately this bug allowed older books to join as well. When we are judging the winners, we will take the date of creation into account and sift out any books that were created before the WPC was published. Apologies for any inconvenience the bug might have caused.
2) This is pertaining to all new books published on Webnovel. As there has been a recent high increase in spam books (i.e. those with customer service numbers) as well as books with very questionable content that is prohibited by Webnovel, all new books (with more than 4k words published) must go through a vetting process by the content editors. Do not panic if you have just newly created your novel but are unable to see it or vote for it. The editors are extremely swamped so it may take a few days for the vetting process, and as the staff do not work over the weekends, it will take longer for books published on Sat and Sun to be vetted. Please note that we will vet the books on a first come, first serve basis. Please do not DM the staff to beg/demand that your book be expedited in order to skip the queue, we need to be fair to all authors and vet according to the usual first come, first serve basis.
Thank you and we appreciate your patience and understanding!
