Thanks to AO3 and those who work on it or have ever worked on it

Gacked from lexin who had it from legionseagle. It's about AO3.

Thank you.

Thank you to everyone who's ever written a line of code, fixed a bug, wrangled a tag, answered a support ticket.

Thank you to the back-end coders and thank you to the front-end coders.

Thank you to everyone who's ever brainstormed about what the archive might do, and thank you to everyone who's poured their hearts, souls, and spare time into trying to make the archive do all of those things and more.

I use the AO3 every day. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for building it for me and for everyone who uses it -- and for everyone who doesn't use it yet but might use it someday.

This archive isn't something to which fandom is entitled. It's a labor of love. You make the archive as your gift to fandom, and I appreciate that gift so, so much.

Even though it isn't finished yet. Even though it isn't perfect yet. It's still awesome, and your hard work is tremendous and admirable, and I just want to say thanks.

(Dear everyone else: if anything in this post resonates with you, feel free to signal-boost or repost.)

This is wonderful.
AO3 have done amazing things - it really is an awesome archive. I hope at some point they'll have the resources to expand their bookmarking system as they're hoping to, so we can have one dedicated to fandom, and not have to rely on Delicious, pinboard, diigo, etc.

I have all my fic except K/S on it (I keep that exclusively for killa's archive). :)
It would be awesome for them to have a fully-fledged bookmarking system. I've put some of my K/S on AO3, older pieces. I plan to eventually put all my K/S there, as well as Killa's archive, but everything goes to Killa's archive first.
I want to get onto AO3 but I think it's by invite only?? Or I can't figure out the login page... *head scratch*
You have to be a member to post, but I believe anyone can read the fic posted there. You can select by fandom - start with the main page button and click on "fandoms".

Here's a link to their TOS fic. Let me know if it works:
