AO3 News
dictionarywrites:

But, Dic!, I hear you cry. I’m not a writer! Why do I need an Ao3 account?
Allow me to explain. 

So, we all know Ao3 fucking rocks. It’s absolutely tremendous; millions of fanworks for dozens of fandoms, beautiful lay-out, wonderful site… All quite correct. 
The list for joining isn’t long as it was when I joined several years back - when I deleted my old pseudonym, madelinesticks, to swap to my new on, it didn’t even take four hours for me to get my invitation emailed. 
It’s totally worth it to join the invite queue, I promise! 
Please, just gave a glance through some of the stuff I outline and see if you’d like to. It’s all features and stuff you don’t see when you’re not logged in. 
So, the stuff I’m outlining:
Subscriptions
Restricted Works
History
Bookmarks
Profiles
Site skins
Gifts
Emails and stuff

This is a great overview of account features, thank you!

Everyone should feel encouraged to create an account no matter if they consider themselves a writer / artist / reader / bookmarker  / listener / lurker / reccer / fan / anything at all. Don’t let the invite system deter you! It takes less than a day to automatically receive an invitation from our queue.

Anonymous asked:
As the main page is down, can you tell me how much needs to be donated to get the convention tote?

transformativeworks:

Donations of US$50 or more are eligible to receive one of our thank you gifts. We have a selection of gifts available, depending on the amount of the donation.

With a minimun US$50 donation, you can choose to receive a 3-pack of OTW stickers or an OTW pen.

With a minimum US$65 donation, you can choose to receive an OTW compact carry-all or one of the US$50 donation gifts.

With a minimum US$75 donation, you can choose to receive a 16-ounce OTW tumbler with straw, the US$65 gift, or one of the US$50 gifts.

Lastly, with a minimum US$100 donation, you can choose to receive an OTW convention tote or any other of our thank you gifts.

As you mention, we’ve been having some trouble with our main site recently (it always happens at the worst time, eh?), but you can still visit the donation page there if you’d like to make a donation of US$50 or more and receive and thank you gift, and that page will let you select the gift when you make the donation. If that site isn’t working, though, you can use the donation page on AO3, and if you donate an amount that makes you eligible for a thank you gift, you will be contacted by someone from our Development & Membership committee to arrange your gift.

Thanks to everyone who supports the OTW and helps us meet our fundraising goal! <3

Works Skins allow you to customize the appearance of your works beyond the basic HTML tags the Archive supports. In order to do this, they use Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), a style language that allows you to define a set of rules for how specific HTML elements in your work should be displayed.

missmeikakuna asked:
How do you mark a single-chapter work as complete?

As long as the box labeled “This work has multiple chapters” is left unchecked, when a work is posted it is marked complete. In a list of works, a completed one can be identified by a green check mark in the four quadrant image that also shows small square boxes for ratings and archive warnings. On incomplete works, this square will be a white circle with a line through it inside a red box.

Single chapter works will also have a chapter listing of 1/1. Incomplete works will either list chapter number out of the total the author has listed (1/25), or the current chapter number with a question mark to show the number of total chapters is unknown (1/?).
