ATTN: Lebeau Library
« on: October 31, 2021, 04:07:23 AM »
I want to move the Lebeau Library to AO3. (Archive Of Our Own) - get it? LOL   
https://archiveofourown.org/

The Issues - Good, Bad or Indifferent:

1. New people to Xmen fanfic - Gamibt specific. (AO3 is a little lacking in Xmen stuff.) It would greatly add to their category. And new readers to great old stories. :)

2. I have to contact everyone. I'm not thrilled with it but its a requirement as its already implied with the site. And Yes, everyone should agree or so I hope. Help here would be greatly appreciated. I don't know if I can auto ask. All agreed the first time with fanfiction.net.

3. Once the Library gets on AO3 ... it will be easier for submissions .. since we don't take any on the site. 

4. My time limit will be long on response but flexible in loading stories. I feel that if I spend more time it will benefit us, thought a few helpers would be great (if you volunteer to help, I got Gambit goodies to reward with.)

I got a lot of stuff to do and the LL won't show up until late 2022 on AO3. That is if the LL is loaded up in a timely manor. (Timely doesn't mean immediate, it means reasonable loading time and person time.) They'll announce and all that, which is cool and the material will get new eyes. :)

5. Anyone who objects to this ... say so now. All of it, including authors, they don't have to join, all they have to do is tell us. The LL doesn't need to go anywhere but if I die, the only place it lives beyond this site ... is on fanfiction.net. I know morbid but I don't want to lose stories. :)

Finally, any help to move the LL to AO3 would be greatly appreciated.

I know its a daunting task but worthy. :)

I would need to name you as a moderator which isn't a problem and then help load the material into a dropbox. I have the link which I would send in a dm or pm.

Let me get all the details ironed out, they've asked a lot of questions for terms of service and whatnot which is great but I need to think of some of it to make sure its the right thing for the Library.

Talks are going well and Open Doors (AO3) has been very supportive, enough so that they'll help with moving the library. This pleases me because I was feeling overwhelmed with the project. I want the library there for diversity reasons (adding to the Xmen content) and if I pass on or have to close this place it won't be lost forever, even though it does live at Fanfiction.net.  AO3 gets more traffic and it would be good to get new eyes on terrific stories.
I wanted to update as I progress. Does it mean it leaves here? No. As long as I'm around anyway.

Neko.

Okay, good news the tech team will take the library. Should be very soon. I'll let you know what they tell me. Yay! New eyes for the Lebeau Library. They will announce and I'll let all of you know.

Progress today! I've answered all questions. No new submissions for now. We will need to team up via twitter to get the word out.

I'll use gambit guilds twitter too, nothing like looking for passwords. LOL

Yes, authors can opt out or abandon works or ask to have their material removed.

That's it for now, I'll keep folks in the loop.

Okay, everything OTW/AO3 needs is done. When they're ready - if we - as a group, tweet, tumblr or what not to get the word out, would be greatly helpful
I'll post in this thread when we're ready. :) The archive is still closed until there is interest.

NicoPony is helping me and we are tagging. Taking some time but we're getting somewhere. LOL
It's been awhile, I open the library to see what the tags should be. LOL
Anyway - will let you know when it will move, might take longer than anticipated but worth the effort.
If Nico and I decide its too much, we'll let you know. :)
