I'm considering moving all of my fanfiction (except for the really old pre-2001 stuff) to archiveofourown.org based purely on the fact that I'm tired of having all my stuff scattered across the Internet. Turtlecest holds most of my embarrassing tmnt fic that isn't posted elsewhere (which isn't as embarrassing in light of the fact that ao3 has a well used watersports tag), adultfanfiction.net has a crappy interface and living in the fear that fanfiction.net will delete me due to content is annoying.

Thoughts?

I've moved to Ao3 as well, so I've really got nothing but positive stuff to say. I wish some of their scripts were a bit easier to use (and that there was a way of sorting bookmarked favorites), but I really like the kudos button as well as the ability to DL pdfs of stories straight to my computer. So... *hands* pros and cons, we gots them.

... we can download pdfs? o_o *goes off to save all her favorite stories ever*

Apparently we'll be able to bookmark our favorite authors soon. :D

I like the interface that AO3 has, and I like the tags... as a reader I don't like that you can't subscribe for updates to a fic like you can on the pit of voles.
As an author I kind of hate the AO3 kudos button. It's worse than the like button on facebook. Readers cheep out, so unless a writer is involved in a certain challenge or writing organization (ie, Yuletide) there's no real sense of community.

But as an Archive it's definitely my favorite service.

I completely forgot what the pit of voles was again. FF.net? XD

There is a subscribe button on AO3, I'm subscribed to like 10 fics. o_o Maybe it's a new thing?

I get what you're saying about the kudos button. I'd rather have it than nothing though, on FF.net you have like 500 people reading your fic and like no feedback at all. D:

:) You have so many fics up there it surprises me. I didn't know you wrote that much!

Lol yeah.... And that's not even all of it. XD I wrote a lot through the end of my shitty marriage and it kinda stuck.

I don't think I've ever done a hits to comments comparison for AO3 vs ff.net, it just seems like I get more comments over there sometimes?

Oh yes, I don't intend to move anything. Whatever is here is here, probably to stay.

I have my fics backed up to a messy USB drive too and said USB drive pretty much comes with me everywhere. <3 It's the best way to carry fics I must admit.

Sorry I missed you night before last. I pretty much passed out at the computer and was dead to the world.

If you wanna move it all, do it. FF.net isn't an ideal place for a lot of fiction, and it's just plain convenient having it all in one spot. That said, moving it will take awhile. Don't stress yourself out moving it all at once.

No worries at all!

FF.net makes me sad. Back 10 years ago it was the best site for fanfiction on the internet and it's just... bleh now.

Yeah, I think I will. Moving stuff will take a while, that is for sure. -_- I expect somewhere around next December. ;)

Yup! Some kind soul gave me an invite, probably the last available one.

I will start the move soon. ^^

You should do what you feel comfortable doing. Archiveofourown isn't as visited as ff.net but if you're feeling insecure about your stories staying posted, they're a pretty good place to put them. I've never lived in any fear of fanfiction.net deleting my stories and I've been with the site since 2000. In my opinion, they only seem to enforce the content guidelines and delete stories if someone "rats out" the author to the people who run the site. I still keep seeing pretty explicit stuff on there, some that are fics that have been on there for years.

Yeah I know. But I have a friend who write pretty much non-explicit stuff and still gets deleted. If anyone at all decides to dislike me all of my ff.net stuff is gone.

You had more... PG-13 stuff though, if I remember correctly. :)

Huh. I wonder why she gets deleted? That is so unfair that stories get deleted just because someone doesn't like them. The claims ought to be investigated with SOME sort of depth.

Most of the stories I've written in recent years are usually M rated now because of adult themes/language/content. I write fics with adults in mind, but they can be for anyone mature enough to handle them. Most of the time the age range I write for late teens/twenties and beyond is what reads my work so I have to say I am reaching my target audience.

Good grief, it's a running gag
I think I have an invite code if you need one. I really love it as a backup archive.

AO3 is heaven.
When they get their tag filtering back up, I will <3 it even more. As it is, it's got more higher quality content that ff.net. However, I still check both - some things can only be found in one place or the other.
