[personal profile] nestra just posted polyamorous recs news that included an announcement about fixing broken links. I... have some notes to myself about how I need to do that, but I'm impressed as hell that she did.

To make things simpler, and because I'm active enough in fandom now to know where all the kids are playing, I checked my AO3 works page and found it really lacking. Less than half of my fic were there. Turns out I wrote 29 stories while in the SG-1 fandom.

I updated my page with all my stuff. Or, I am updating it. I have a half a dozen more drafts to proof (when did I write all this?) but it's almost there. So, if anyone ever needs that material (Teal'c fic anyone? Anyone jonesing for old-school SG-1 slash? Yes?), it's in a proper archive, y'all.

ETA: updated! wow. The process was a little buggy--I couldn't edit the fandom or date originally published or remix links very easily, but I think everything is legible.

Actually, if what you're doing is importing from another archive, you might check with either AO3 support or the Open Doors people, given that they did end up successfully importing comments from the old Yuletide archive. Now that they've done that trick once, it may be possible to make the process available again.

I reply to comments when I get them, and sometimes conversations do start. But you're right -- I'm more apt to get into conversations here than on the archive even tho it has that threaded comments feature.

I've learned that people come into different environments online with all kinds of expectations. For example, people have quit posting here because of Twitter, because they have this assumption that posts on an actual blog have to be long.

And I do know writers who never answer comments on the archive.

But if you want to have a conversation and/or create a community, you have to reply. So that's what I do! I like knowing people.

But it's been fascinating to watch the changes in internet platforms since 2002 when I discovered online fandom.

On editing dates: this recent post from the Not Prime Time admin community describes a method of setting a different publication date.

It's been a long while, but I believe I recall using this feature when I originally posted my early Yuletide stories to AO3 and when I brought over my completed Kim Possible works from FF.Net. (There are still some incomplete KP stories of mine over on FF; it doesn't seem fair to bring those across until or unless I actually finish the stories, which is unlikely to occur in the near term -- though One Never Knows.)
