Happy birthday! I doubt I made it.

Thank you all for the birthday wishes, even if it was a terrible Monday for me. Luckily I get both Thursday and Friday off this week because of Thanksgiving.

What would you think of putting the M:EM Archive on AO3? Like, setting up an Archivist/Curator account there to post them and agree on a format to tag stuff and point back to this forum; the series function also allows for a clear organization of stories featuring the same characters/plotlines. It could bring new eyes to our work from a popular platform.

To be completely honest, I've been posting my stories there for a while. Didn't have a lot of feedback but hey :V

I somehow missed this, but I wanted to say that I'm in favor of it if for no other reason than I see AO3 lasting a lot longer than this place might due to it being a whole *place*, if you know what I mean.

I've actually been dipping my toes into AO3 as a reader in the last few months, looking for some really specific things that I thought I might find there. I have finally been exposed to legitimately bad fanfiction and it reminds me to say that I love you guys.

What I really need to address, though, is that I simply no longer have the time to be "The Archivist" anymore. I think that ship sailed a long time ago and I didn't want to admit it, but I need to say now that I basically can't help do the archive work that I used to. Actually, I think I/we am/are like 5 years behind on uploading/backup of the current Archive, considering the last vote was 3 years ago.

I'm sorry to hear you had a bad day. I hope you can enjoy your time off, though!

Honestly, I've considered taking this over for a while now, but I didn't want to do it without talking to you first. Every summer I keep thinking that I should at least get the pieces posted that have been voted in, but I remembered that you backed them up somehow and I didn't know exactly what your process was, so I just sort of never did it. But basically, I would be fine taking over for you if that is what you want. I doubt I will be as thorough as you have been, but I am willing to give it a go.

I agree, if nothing else it would be another place to keep our best stuff in in case something unfortunate happens.

It's quite wild to me that I'm the one most familiar with it*, buuut yeah, having a screening procedure in place indeed does guarantee quality. On AO3 the difficult thing is sifting through the sea of fanfic to find the islands of Good Writing, more or less lol.

*Beside Heliosphoros, probably I seem to recall he's been posting their stories on AO3 as well.

That said, I'd be up to make the most legwork if we agreed with a tagging protocol or smth (my account should have a number of viable invite codes ready to be used) I should prolly make a dedicated thread for that?

Happy whatever it is wherever you are!
I just watched the movie Vengeance, and I've got to say it is one very fine movie.
