hail, and farewell

As many of you know, I kind of suck as a moderator and archive maintainer, and the archive for the 2005 ficathon has been offline for quite a little bit. Some might even say years. However, there now exists a site called Archive of Our Own which I am reasonably certain will continue to run without my input, and I hereby propose we post the ficathon fic there immediately. If you do not already have a login for AO3, this is where you request one. If I recall correctly it usually takes a day or so.

I have created a collection called Valabars and a subcollection called Valabars_2005, and when you post your story there is a box of options titled Associations, under which one line is "Post to Collections/Challenges" where you can type in "Valabars_2005". You can also type in the name of the person the story was for under "Recipient." I have tested this process, and you can see my results here: Valabar's 2005. If you have already posted your story at AO3 (I know there's at least one up there) you can edit the story and add this data to the relevant fields.

If you no longer have a copy of your story: fear not, I DO! Unfortunately I cannot post it for you; only the author can post at AO3. Please leave me a comment with your email or email me directly at juliette dot torres at gmail dot com to request anything you need.

I have HIGH HIGH HOPES that the automation of challenge and archival processes at Archive of Our Own mean I might get off my ass and run another challenge. And perhaps even run the damn thing annually. Who knows. I am unlikely to post about that here as by and large lj has pissed me off, so I have created a community on dreamwidth: [community profile] valabars which I shall input some information on... tomorrow, but you may feel free to join now if you like. If you do not have a dreamwidth and would like one, here's a handful of codes (and if these all get used, I have more):

If you do not have a dreamwidth, don't want one, and would still like to participate in potential future Valabar's fic exchanges, tell me! We'll figure something out.
