Mander_Pander, agents and publishers consider Wattpad published work because it’s on the internet and once it’s on the net, it’s always there. Also, big name authors have published short stories set in their story universes on there too, such as Marissa Meyer of THE LUNAR CHRONICLES, so, yes, it is legitimately seen as published, as opposed to AO3. Use CPs in the future, not websites.

"Thanks but I'll pass."

Actually kind of comical and extremely unprofessional. I can see it's not just me who had such a charming response......

Not even a "Hello" or "Dear Ms. ___" or "Please know this industry is subjective" or "Thank you for submitting" or "Sincerely..." Mentioned that some of my chapters were posted on Wattpad (a free website for feedback, not a publication site) and her response to my query, chapters, AND synopsis was:

"I don’t represent previously published material."

As you can tell, she's SUPER personable! A MUST query agent! :)
