Now that I've been using this site for awhile, I've decided to 'share the love', so to speak. Since AO3 is still in beta, they currently have a 'by inventation only' system in place for new members to join. This is either by waiting list (how I got in), or by current users handing out invites. It's the latter I wish to do, but I need to know how many people are interested in this site.
In case you didn't know, AO3 is a fanworks site, a bit like FF.net. However, they have a more extenstive rating/tagging system (for examples you can look at the works in my profile: [link]
: the colored squares on the left are part of the rating system (hover over them to read what they mean). They also allow they use of 'pseudos' and series. More information about them can be found their FAQ ([link]
and TOS ([link]
If you are interested in giving this place a shot, let me know! Just keep in mind two things:
- the site is still in beta, so things will break/not work sometimes (I, personally, haven't had any 'site breaking' issues yet)
- they currently only allow fanfiction to be uploaded, though their introduction email says they allow things like fanart, etc (those will be allowed eventually)
I'll wait a week before requesting some invites to send out to folks: I'd rather have an exact number to request for so I don't have invites sitting around gathering dust.
