    OTW Fannews Getting Canon

    • Forbes hosted an article about cartoon fandom in Zambia and the difficulty in obtaining canon. "'It’s literally impossible to find anime DVDs in stores here,' said Banda. 'Also, the last anime I saw in a Zambian cinema was [Studio Ghibli film] Ponyo. So yeah, access is pretty rough.' Even today, DVDs and BluRay are Zambians’ only legal options, as 'streaming legally is pretty much out of the question,' Banda said, referring to Crunchyroll, Funimation, and other websites’ region locking for much of Africa. Since the local currency, the Zambian kwacha, is weak compared to the Euro, fans often obtain anime through piracy when that’s all they can afford."
    • Science Fiction.com wrote about a donation to the OTW's partner institution, the University of Iowa. "73-year-old Allen Lewis spent the last 20 years collecting more than 17,000 books. Many of them are in the science fiction and fantasy realm as Lewis sought to rekindle his childhood love for those genres. Lewis has been a sci-fi fan since he was 12...Many of Lewis’ books are first editions and first printings. His collection includes 30,000 signatures from authors, editors and artists." Don't forget that the Open Doors project helps fans arrange donations of fannish memorabilia to the Iowa collection, so contact them with questions about your own collection!
    • NBC Philadelphia was among those profiling the local furry community "Ward, who helps organize the local group, didn't identify as a Furry until 2008, after she graduated from Marietta College in Ohio. Like many local Furries, she found her way into fandom through its anthropomorphic artwork. 'It's kind of an all-or-nothing thing,' she said. 'You start going, they drag you to the convention, and that's it, you're done.' Around Pennsylvania, Furries congregate on one online forum, www.pa-furry.org, and a handful of Facebook and Twitter groups. Anywhere between a dozen and a hundred Furries, friends and family show up to the local events, which become more frequent in the summer."
    • The New York Times hosted a discussion about fannish nostalgia. "Alas, I will never be 9 years old in 1987 ever again, and though it’s fun to romanticize the past, I don’t want to mistake fondness for excellence...Much like my friendships with the other members of my Full House Club, whom I sporadically see in my Facebook feed with their own 9-year-olds, my fandom seems unsustainable now. Better, then, to let the children of today discover and obsess about their own TV shows. Don’t remake the sweet smarm of our youth. I’ll be fine without it. I can always read up on some Uncle Jesse and Uncle Joey fan-fic if ever I’m feeling sentimental."

    • Singer, producer, and Portlandia star, Carrie Brownstein sent out an Instagram message on how thrilling it was to meet B52's singer Cindy Wilson and the importance of fandom. "To this day I still am a fan, of many, many things. Fandom keeps me hopeful and engaged, a participant. And I was a fan last night in front of Cindy, rattling off a whole bunch of incoherent, half-strung together thoughts about her songs, her voice, her band, her brother. And it felt, well, awesome. I guess I'm sharing this because I'm on tour right now and I meet fans every night. Sweet and eager faces, sometimes desperate, sometimes nervous. Please know I'm grateful for all of it. And I understand it. I'm one of you."
    • A review of The Great Detective in The Boston Globe cited the fandom section as the most interesting part. The author met with many fans at different events. "At one of these (a dinner held by the Baker Street Babes), he meets a doctoral candidate in adaptation studies whose work focuses on the great detective. 'Sherlock Holmes is like the North Star of the culture,' she says, neatly summing up Dundas’s own implied thesis. 'Everything else swirls around and changes, but he is always there.'"
    • Author C.S. Pacat began her original novels for the Captive Prince Trilogy on LiveJournal before their commercial publication. In a leadup to the release of the final novel, she celebrated individual fan creators and their fanworks. After recognizing the works of several fan artists she added, "I (tragically) can't read Captive Prince fanfiction in case I get influenced, but I'm always so happy to know that people are writing it. I chose these three writers because they have written the three most popular works on Archive.org - so I know that they are writers that you all love."
    • A Newsarama article looked into how fans connect to characters and their developmental arcs. "Krasniewicz said the sense of ownership that comic fans feel toward their favorite characters is not unique to them. In fact, it's part of being human. 'This ownership or commitment to the universe that the fandom is built around is what humans do...We create these kinds of ties to real or fictional world's because that is how we make sense of the world. These commitments help us categorize and judge everything around us. It is amazing how much fictional universes can influence the everyday world.'"

  • OTW Fannews: Similar to Fanfic

    • An article in The Telegraph discussed how fan speculation in sports fandom is a form of fanfic. "At the heart of fan fiction’s appeal is a sort of wish fulfilment: a subtle remaking of the world in which one’s wildest fantasies can gush uncontrollably to the surface. And while a good deal of fan fiction is sexual in nature, much of it is just quite sweet: charming teenage reveries that begin with a single pleasant idea – 'wouldn’t it be nice if'...In a fortnight's time we see the opening of the transfer window, and yet despite the two being ostensibly unrelated, it strikes me that there are certain similarities between the millions of stories that teenage girls tell each other on Tumblr, and the millions of stories that football will tell itself over the next three months. For the reopening of the summer window marks the ceremonial point at which football subtly shifts in character: from a real game played on the pitch, to a fantasy enacted largely in the imagination."
    • Salon discussed the focus on women in the new season of Halt and Catch Fire. "This season...has an exuberance the first season struggled to reach, and it’s because of a storytelling device that has more popularity in fan fiction archives than Hollywood studios: the gender swap. It’s a thought experiment that pops up in fervent fandoms, ones that are also eagerly reimagining beloved characters in different settings or with new adventures...As with so many elements of fandom, it’s casually subversive—a re-creation that grapples with the social construction of gender and imagines its infinite fluidity. And as with so many elements of fandom, it is a long-standing tradition—one that Shakespeare made regular use of in his plays, which itself was a commentary on the fact that all the female roles were played by men."
    • A guest post in The Japan News explained cover dancing which "is a fun activity in which teams of dancers emulate the moves of Japanese or South Korean idols as they dance to the original music. Spectators cheer for them as if they were the real deal. While cover dancing is gaining more and more fans in Japan, I’ve often met fans in Thailand, Hong Kong and nearby areas, as well as in the United States and Latin America. I think cover dancing is similar to fan fiction for anime and manga in dojin culture, in which fans create their own works using popular manga and anime characters."
    • An article at The Guardian discussed academic analyses of fan activities on Frozen. "Fan responses have boomed on the internet and given rise to myriad readings. In fact, academia now lags behind fans when it comes to subjecting popular culture to intense analysis. The online debate about, say, Mad Men could sustain a conference for weeks. 'Fan studies talks about how carefully and critically audiences discuss texts...The internet has made fan responses so much more mainstream and accessible.' In the past, she says, you would need to do focus groups to yield similar information. 'I think the way in which it’s been really popular with traditionally marginalised communities is specific to Elsa’s characterisation...It can resonate with people who have been ostracised or stigmatised.'”

  • OTW Fannews: Fandom Entrepreneurs

    • A post at Digital Book World discussed lessons publishers should learn as the eBook market matures. For one, they should "[a]cquire readers, not just authors. Editors already know to look for authors who have already found a following, however small, but while publishers are turning more attention to fan fiction communities, many aren’t being utilized to their full potential. Publishers tend to see writers of online fan fiction and original fiction, like those on Wattpad, as a means for sparking initial sales. But they can sometimes exceed that marketing function to emerge as strong, independent brands in their own right and should be approached accordingly from the get-go. Amanda Black’s Apartment novels and SJ Hooks’s Absolute novels both originated as Twilight fan fiction posted as online serials and are now among Full Fathom Five Digital’s best-selling titles."
    • There's certainly no slowdown in converting fanfic to published work. But authors aren't the only entrepreneurs cashing in on fandom interest. Fanmail is one of many new products targeted at female fans. "The subscription box market has expanded hugely in the last year with buyers able to find mystery boxes filled with makeup, beer, vinyl records, dog treats, and more. In the pop culture world, the most popular boxes have targeted mainly male buyers, with only incidental inclusion of what could be considered female fandom goodies...'We weren't seeing our shows and our heroes and heroines represented,' said Del Vecchio...'And a lot of the boxes were just filled with items you could buy yourself versus handmade and fan-created stuff.' Among the properties that will be featured in the first six months of FanMail are Orphan Black, Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, iZombie, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Supernatural, Legend of Zelda, and many more."
    • The Ft. Leavenworth Lamp featured the business efforts of Mugglenet creator Emerson Spartz. "He wanted to 'build stuff' and when he came across a free webpage maker he was intrigued. He spent a month building websites that went nowhere until he came up with Mugglenet. He liked it but he didn't know how to get people to come and use it. 'So I just emailed every single Harry Potter webmaster on the entire internet. This was before search engines were a thing, so it was an enormously difficult process. I emailed thousands of them and a few hundred got back to me, and we linked to each other. And people started to come to the website...I had to grow up in a hurry because I was managing a part paid/part volunteer team of 120 people. I kept my age a fiercely guarded secret, thinking as soon as they knew, I would have to deal with mass departures."
    • Big corporations are also putting fans to work for them. "[O]nly a minority are superfans who write primarily about the company’s products and theme parks...To get on Disney's radar, Rachel Pitzel, a mother of two who lives in Playa Vista, California, filled out an online application for, and was accepted to, a social media event the company held in Scottsdale, Arizona last June...But the invitation doesn't come free. Attendees get deep discounts, but they nevertheless pay for their packages, which include three nights at Disney's Yacht Club Resort, theme park tickets, fast passes to skip lines and a beach-themed party. Families also pay for their own transportation." More companies want the free labor. "Disney was the first major company to tap the influence of moms across a wide spectrum of social media, but the approach is now being used to promote a range of products, including Hewlett-Packard printers and Cottonelle toilet paper."

  • OTW Fannews: Fannish Psychology

    • An article at the Huffington Post explored the appeal of some canon relationships. "According to DeFife, this strong desire we feel for an onscreen couple to get together is rooted in a psychological phenomenon known as the Zeigarnik Effect. 'It was named after a psychologist who observed waiters in restaurants who would not write down their orders for a table...She found that they had memory for the order only as long as it wasn't filled, and then once it was filled that memory for the order went away.' The phenomenon now refers to the notion that an unsolved problem remains cognitively alive. Unresolved romantic chemistry in TV shows and books, DeFife says, falls neatly into this category.
    • An interview in The Independent with author Lucy Saxon revealed her health's role in fanfic. "It was thought likely that glandular fever had triggered the CFS, and doctors initially thought it would clear within a year. But as time went on it became apparent this was a condition that would be with Saxon for life...she recalled how much she had enjoyed creative writing at primary school...'I had been reading a lot of Harry Potter fan fiction, I was off school a lot, and had a lot of time on my hands...I wrote fan fiction for a good two years and alongside that I started to write original stuff.'"
    • A Boing Boing post linked to I Ship It, a short film by Yulin Kuang. The work "follows a young singer named Zoe Smallman (Mary Kate Wiles of The Lizzie Bennet Diaries fame) who recovers from a breakup by turning to Harry Potter-themed 'Wizard Rock.' It’s a charming story that shows off Kuang’s visual flare, which is clearly influenced by the likes of Wes Anderson and Edgar Wright but still feels unique. And Kuang's interest in online spaces—both as a distribution platform and as subject matter—could very well place her at the forefront of an upcoming trend in filmaking."
    • An interview in Concordiensis with the writer of a fanfic inspired play asked about the motivation for the plot. "The play starts off with Eddie who, after a run in with an ultra fan, Catherine (who is also a prolific fanfiction writer) is inspired by her slash fanfiction of The Gargoyle and the Sparrow, to try to become famous again. In an effort to reclaim his fame, Eddie seeks out Frank and convinces him to pretend to be married and basically reenact Catherine’s fanfiction to cater to their fan base." The playwright explained "[F]rom Catherine’s angle, I related to her because we are both amateur writers. Plus, identity politics has always fascinated me. Like how people love categorizing you, and how that kind of clashes with how you identify yourself. And I thought superheroes served as a great gateway to that theme because they are able to hide themselves behind a fake persona that is always under the scrutiny of the public, making it easy for them to escape their true identities."

  • Библиотека Отшельника приходит на АО3

    Библиотека Отшельника, архив фанфикшн по сериалу Blake's 7 переезжает на Archive of Our Own – AO3 (Наш Архив).

    В этом посте:

    Немножко Истории

    The Hermit Library (Библиотека Отшельника) – это архив фанфикшна и фан-работ по мотивам сериала Blake 7, который расположен на сайте Hermit.org. Основанный и управляемый издателем и автором самиздата Джудит Проктор в 2000 году, он был в рядах самых ранних многоавторских архивов в фандоме, и несколько лет был самым крупным онлайн архивом Blake 7. Он включает множество рассказов и новелл, которые впервые появились в виде самиздата, в частности те, которые были опубликованы или организованы Джудит.

    Во время выхода из строя сайта Hermit.org в 2014 году фанат по имени Aralias связался (связалась) с Джудит, чтобы узнать, пропал ли сайт навсегда или может быть восстановлен. И, хотя сайт вернулся к жизни, Aralias хотел(а) увериться, что фики, расположенные на Hermit.org, не будут потеряны, и задал(а) вопрос, могут ли они быть перенесены на АО3, где они будут в безопасности (и наконец-то станет возможен поиск по пэйрингу!). Джудит согласилась. Она также стремилась к тому, чтобы переместить остальное содержимое Hermit.org (включая отзывы на самиздат и полную историю карьеры Гарета Томаса и Sevenclopia) на Фанлор или другой архив и затем закрыть сайт.

    Комитет Open Doors будет работать с Джудит Проктор и Aralias над перемещением Библиотеки Отшельника в отдельную, доступную для поиска коллекцию со своими особенностями. В конечном счете ссылки, ведущие на старый сайт, будут перенаправлять на коллекцию на АО3, так что работы можно будет найти по их старым URL. В июле мы начнем вручную загружать работы из Библиотеки Отшельника в коллекцию AO3.

    Что это значит для авторов, у которых есть работы в Библиотеке Отшельника?

    Это та часть, где мы просим вас о помощи!

    1. Если у вас уже есть аккаунт на AO3 и вы размещали там свои работы из Библиотеки Отшельника, пожалуйста, свяжитесь с модераторами (hermitlibrary.archivist [at] gmail.com), указав свой(и) псевдоним(ы) в Библиотеке Отшельника и адрес(а) электронной почты, чтобы мы не загружали ваши работы.

    Для инструкций по массовому добавлению историй в новую коллекцию на АО3 Библиотека Отшельника, пожалуйста посетите вебсайт Открытые Двери.

    2. Если у вас нет AO3 аккаунта, но вы хотели бы загрузить свои работы сами, пожалуйста, свяжитесь с модераторами (hermitlibrary.archivist [at] gmail.com), указав свой(и) псевдоним(ы) в Библиотеке Отшельника и адрес(а) электронной почты, на который(е) вы хотели бы получить приглашение АО3.

    Для инструкций по загрузке работ и добавлению их в коллекцию Библиотека Отшельника, пожалуйста, посетите вебсайт Открытые Двери.

    3. Если у вас еще нет аккаунта AO3, но вы бы хотели его иметь, а также хотели бы получить помощь в загрузке своих работ, пожалуйста, свяжитесь с модераторами (hermitlibrary.archivist [at] gmail.com), указав свой(и) псевдоним(ы) в Библиотеке Отшельника и адрес(а) электронной почты, на который(е) вы хотели бы получить приглашение АО3.

    Как только ваш аккаунт будет настроен, сообщите нам ваше AO3 имя и мы сможем перенести вам ваши работы.

    4. Если вы хотите, чтобы ваши работы НЕ были перенесены, пожалуйста, свяжитесь с модераторами (hermitlibrary.archivist [at] gmail.com), указав ваш(и) псевдоним(ы) Библиотеки Отшельника и адрес(а) электронной почты, чтобы мы не добавляли их.

    Если вы не имеете ничего против того, чтобы ваши работы были сохранены, но больше не хотите, чтобы ваше имя было к ним привязано, пожалуйста, дайте нам знать – мы сможем забрать у вас права на работу вместо того, чтобы просто оставить ее для удаления.

    Все работы, архивированные от имени создателя, будут числиться с именем создателя в кратком содержании работы. Когда мы загрузим работы, мы уведомим об этом по электронной почте на адрес, привязанный к работе. Когда все работы будут перенесены, комитет Открытых Дверей установит ссылку для перенаправления, и оригинальная Библиотека будет закрыта навсегда.

    Все работы буду доступны для просмотра только для авторизованных пользователей АО3. Как только вы заявите, что это ваша работа, мы сможем сделать ее доступной для широкого просмотра, если вы этого захотите. Через 30 дней все работы, на которые никто не заявился, сделаются доступными для всех посетителей.

    Если у вас больше нет доступа к электронной почте, к которой привязан ваш аккаунт в Библиотеке Отшельника, пожалуйста, свяжитесь с модераторами (hermitlibrary.archivist [at] gmail.com) для помощи в подтверждении вашей личности. (Если вы публиковали ваши работы еще где-то или у вас есть более легкий способ подтвердить, что работы ваши, пожалуйста, включите и его.)

    Если у вас еще остались вопросы...

    Если у вас еще остались вопросы, посетите страницу ВиО Открытые Двери, свяжитесь с модераторами (hermitlibrary.archivist [at] gmail.com) или комитетом Открытые Двери, или оставьте комментарии к этому посту и мы свяжемся с вами.

    Мы будем рады, если фанаты помогут нам сохранить историю Библиотеки Отшельника и Hermit.org на Фанлор. Если вы новичок в редактировании вики, не переживайте! Зайдите на Портал новых посетителей, или спросите совета у модераторов Фанлора.

    Мы рады оказать помощь в сохранении Библиотеки Отшельника!

  • A Hermit Library está Chegando no AO3

    The Hermit Library, um arquivo de fanfics de Blake's 7, está de mudança para o Archive of Our Own – AO3 (Nosso Próprio Arquivo).

    Neste post:

    Contexto

    O Hermit Library é um arquivo de fanfiction e fan art de Blake 7 hospedado no site Hermit.org. Fundado e administrado pela autora e editora de zines impressas Judith Proctor em 2000, foi um dos primeiros arquivos para múltiplxs autorxs no fandom, e por muitos anos foi o maior arquivo online de Blake 7. Ele inclui muitas histórias e romances que apareceram primeiro nas zines, particularmente aquelas publicadas ou agenciadas por Judith.

    Durante uma interrupção do serviço do Hermit.org em 2014, umx fã chamadx Aralias entrou em contato com Judith para descobrir se o site ficaria fora do ar para sempre ou se ele retoranria. Embora o site tenha retornado, Aralias gostaria de garantir que as fics hospedadas no Hermit nunca mais fossem perdidas, e perguntou se elas poderiam ser importadas para o AO3, onde elas ficariam seguras (e finalmente seria possível buscar por relacionamentos!). Judith concordou. Ela também mostrou-se interessada em mover todo o conteúdo do Hermit.org (incluindo resenhas de zines, a Sevenclopia e a história completa da carreira de Gareth Thomas) para o Fanlore ou algum outro arquivo para poder fechar o site.

    O Portas Abertas irá trabalhar com Judith Proctor e Aralias para importar o Hermit Library para uma coleção com identificação e busca próprias. Eventualmente os links para o site antigo serão redirecionados para a coleção no AO3 para que as obras continuem sendo acessíveis através dos URLs antigos. Nós começaremos a importação de obras da Hermit Library para a coleção no AO3 em Julho.

    O que isso significa para criadorxs que têm obras no Hermit Library?

    Agora é que pedimos a sua ajuda!

    1. Se você já tem uma conta no AO3 e postou nela as suas obras que estavam no Hermit Library, por favor entre em contato com xs moderadorxs (hermitlibrary.archivist [at] gmail.com) com o(s) seu(s) pseudônimo(s) no Hermit Library e endereço(s) de e-mail para que não importemos as suas obras.

    Para instruções sobre como adicionar multiplas histórias à nova coleção no AO3, Hermit Library, por favor consulte o site do Portas Abertas.

    2. Se você ainda não tem uma conta no AO3, mas gostaria de ter uma para importar as obras por si mesmx, por favor entre em contato com xs moderadorxs (hermitlibrary.archivist [at] gmail.com) com o(s) seu(s) pseudônimo(s) no Hermit Library, e a conta de e-mail de sua preferência para o envio do convite do AO3.

    Para instruções sobre como importar obras e adicioná-las para a coleção Hermit Library, por favor consulte o site do Portas Abertas.

    3. Se você ainda não tem uma conta no AO3, mas gostaria de ter uma, bem como receber a nossa ajuda para importar as suas obras, por favor entre em contato com xs moderadorxs (hermitlibrary.archivist [at] gmail.com) com o(s) seu(s) pseudônimo(s) no Hermit Library, e a conta de e-mail de sua preferência para o envio do convite do AO3. Uma vez registrada a sua conta, nos informe o seu nome de usuárix no AO3, e poderemos transferir as suas obras quando elas forem importadas.

    4. Se você NÃO quer que as suas obras sejam movidas, por favor entre em contato com xs moderadorxs (hermitlibrary.archivist [at] gmail.com) com o(s) seu(s) pseudônimo(s) no Hermit Library e endereço(s) de e-mail para que não as adicionemos.

    Se você gostaria que as mesmas fossem preservadas mas não quer mais que seu nome seja associado a elas, por favor informe-nos disso também; podemos tornar suas obras órfãs ao invés de deixá-las para trás para serem deletadas.

    Todas as obras importadas em nome de criadorxs serão atribuídas a estxs com nomes no sumário da obra. À medida que importamos obras, notificaremos os endereços de email associados com cada uma. Quando todas as obras tiverem sido verificadas, o comitê Portas Abertas irá estabelecer os redirecionamentos dos URLs e o arquivo original será permanentemente fechado.

    Todas as obras importadas serão visíveis somente a usuárixs do AO3 que estejam logadxs. Quando reivindicar suas obras, você pode fazer com que fiquem públicas, se assim desejar. Após 30 dias, todas as obras não reinvidicadas se tornarão visíveis para todxs xs visitantes.

    Se você não tem mais acesso à conte de e-mail associada com a sua conta no Hermit Library, por favor entre em contato com xs moderadorxs (hermitlibrary.archivist [at] gmail.com) para receber assistência na verificação da sua identidade. (Se você postou a obra em algum outro lugar ou tem alguma forma fácil de provar que elas pertecem a você, por favor inclua essa informação!)

    E se você ainda tiver dúvidas...

    Se você tiver mais dúvidas, visite a página do FAQ do Portas Abertas entre em contato com xs moderadorxs (hermitlibrary.archivist [at] gmail.com) ou o comitê Portas Abertas, ou deixe um comentário neste post e nós responderemos o mais rápido possível.

    Nós também adoraríamos se fãs nos ajudassem a presenvar a história do the Hermit Library e do Hermit.org na Fanlore. Se você não tem experiência na edição de wikis, não se preocupe! Confira o new visitor portal", ou peça dicas a Jardineirxs da Fanlore.

    Nós estamos felizes por poder ajudar a preservar o Hermit Library!

  • De Hermit Library komt naar AO3

    De Hermit Library, een Blake's 7 fanfictie archief, wordt geïmporteerd naar Archive of Our Own – AO3 (Ons Eigen Archief).

    In deze post:

    Achtergrond informatie

    De Hermit Library is een Blake’s 7 fanfictie en fan art archief dat wordt gehost op de Hermit.org site. Gestart en beheerd door printzine uitgever en auteur Judith Proctor in 2000, het was een van de eerste multi-auteur archieven in het fandom, en was voor een aantal jaar het grootste online Blake’s 7 archief. Het omvat een groot aantal verhalen en boeken die eerst zijn verschenen in zines, vooral die door Judith zijn uitgegeven of bemiddeld.

    Tijdens een periode waarin Hermit.org niet beschikbaar was in 2014, heeft een fan met de naam Aralias contact gezocht met Judith om uit te zoeken of de site voor altijd weg zou zijn of dat deze weer kon worden herstart. Hoewel de site inderdaad terugkeerde, wilde Aralias er zeker van zijn dat de fics die op Hermit werden gehost nooit meer verloren zouden gaan, en hij vroeg of ze geïmporteerd konden worden naar AO3, waar ze veilig waren (en eindelijk doorzoekbaar op paring!). Judith ging hier mee akkoord. Ze was ook zeer gebrand op het verplaatsen van de rest van de inhoud op Hermit.org (inclusief zine reviews, de Sevenclopia en Gareth Thomas’s complete loopbaan geschiedenis) naar ofwel Fanlore ofwel een ander archief om daarna de site te sluiten.

    Open Deuren zal met Judith Proctor en Aralias samenwerken om de Hermit Library te importeren in een aparte, doorzoekbare verzameling met een eigen identiteit. Uiteindelijk zullen de links die naar de oude site gaan, omleiden naar de verzameling op AO3 zodat de werken nog steeds op hun oude URL kunnen worden gevonden. We beginnen in juli met het importeren van de werken van de Hermit Library naar AO3.

    Wat betekent dit voor makers die werken hebben op de Hermit Library?

    Dit is waar we jou om hulp vragen!

    1. Als je al een AO3 account hebt en je hebt je Hermit Library werken daar gepost, neem dan contact op met de moderators (hermitlibrary.archivist [at] gmail.com) met jouw Hermit Library pseudoniem(en) en e-mailadres(sen), zodat we jouw werken niet importeren.

    Voor uitleg over hoe je in bulk werken kan toevoegen aan de nieuwe verzameling op AO3, Hermit Library, ga naar de Open Deuren website.

    2. Als je nog geen AO3 account hebt, maar je wilt een van je werken zelf importeren, neem dan contact op met de moderators (hermitlibrary.archivist [at] gmail.com) en geef jouw Hermit Library pseudoniem(en) door, samen met het e-mailadres waar de AO3 uitnodiging naar toe gestuurd kan worden.

    Voor uitleg over het uploaden van werken en hoe je ze toe kan voegen aan de Hermit Library verzameling, ga je naar de Open Deuren website.

    3. Als je nog geen AO3 account hebt, maar er wel een wilt, samen met hulp bij het importeren van jouw werken, neem dan contact op met de moderators (hermitlibrary.archivist [at] gmail.com) en geef jouw Hermit Library pseudoniem(en) door, samen met het e-mailadres waar de AO3 uitnodiging naar toe gestuurd kan worden.
    Zodra jouw account klaar is kun je jouw AO3 naam aan ons doorgeven, zodat wij jouw werken aan jou kunnen overdragen zodra ze geïmporteerd zijn.

    4. Als je NIET wilt dat jouw werken worden geïmporteerd, neem dan contact op met de moderators (hermitlibrary.archivist [at] gmail.com) en geef jouw Hermit Library pseudoniem(en) door, samen met jouw e-mailadres(sen), zodat we jouw werken niet toevoegen aan AO3.

    Als je het niet erg vindt dat jouw werken worden bewaard, maar je hebt liever niet dat jouw naam nog langer met ze in verband wordt gebracht, laat ons dat dan ook weten-- we kunnen jouw werken “verlaten”, waardoor ze worden toegevoegd aan een speciaal account voor Verlaten werken in plaats van ze te laten staan tot ze worden verwijderd.

    Alle werken die worden gearchiveerd namens een maker worden toegekend aan de naam van de maker in de samenvatting van het werk. Terwijl we de werken importeren zullen we e-mail berichten sturen naar de adressen die met het werk geassocieerd zijn. Als alle werken er zijn, zal de Open Deuren commissie de URL omleidingen opzetten en de originele Library definitief worden gesloten.

    Alle geïmporteerde werken zullen zo ingesteld zijn dat ze alleen zichtbaar zijn voor ingelogde AO3 gebruikers. Als je jouw werken hebt opgeëist kun je ze openbaar zichtbaar maken als je dit wilt. Na 30 dagen zullen alle niet opgeëiste werken zichtbaar worden gemaakt voor alle bezoekers.

    Als je niet langer toegang hebt tot het e-mailaccount dat bij jouw Hermit Library account hoort, neem dan contact op met de moderators (hermitlibrary.archivist [at] gmail.com) voor hulp bij het verifiëren van jouw identiteit. (Als je de werken ergens anders hebt geplaatst, of als je een makkelijke manier hebt om aan te tonen dat ze van jou zijn, voeg dit dan bij!)

    Als je nog vragen hebt...

    Als je nog verdere vragen hebt, breng dan een bezoekje aan de Open Deuren Veelgestelde Vragen pagina, neem contact op met de moderators (hermitlibrary.archivist [at] gmail.com) of laat commentaar achter bij deze post en we reageren zo snel mogelijk.

    We vinden het ook fantastisch als fans ons kunnen helpen om het verhaal van href="http://fanlore.org/wiki/The_Blake%27s_7_Library">de Hermit Library en Hermit.org te behouden op Fanlore. Als je nog niet eerder een wiki hebt bewerkt, maak je dan geen zorgen! Check de new visitor portal of vraag de Fanlore Beheerders om tips!

    Wij zijn enthousiast over de mogelijkheid om de Hermit Library te helpen behouden!

  • Hermit Library kommer til AO3

    Hermit Library, et Blake's 7 fanfiction arkiv, er ved at blive importeret til Archive of Our Own – AO3 (Vores Eget Arkiv).

    I dette indlæg:

    Baggrundshistorie

    Hermit Library er et Blake's 7 fanfiction- og fanart-arkiv hostet på Hermit.org-siden. Det blev grundlagt og drevet af printzine-udgiver og forfatter Judith Proctor i 2000, var blandt de tidligste multiforfatter-arkiver i fandommen og var i nogle år det største online Blake's 7-arkiv. Det indeholder mange historier og romaner, som først blev udgivet i zines, især de, der blev udgivet eller repræsenteret af Judith.

    Under en udfaldsperiode på Hermit.org kontaktede en fan under navnet Aralias i 2014 Judith for at finde ud af, om siden var væk for evigt eller kunne blive genoplivet. Selvom siden kom tilbage, var Aralias ivrig efter at sikre, at fics hostet på Hermit aldrig ville være tabt igen og spurgte, om de kunne blive importeret til AO3, hvor de ville være sikre (og omsider søgbare efter par!). Judith indvilligede. Hun var også ivrig efter at flytte resten af indholdet på Hermit.org (inklusiv zineanmeldelser, Sevenclopia'en og Gareth Thomas' komplette karriereforløb) til enten Fanlore eller et andet arkiv og så lukke siden.

    Åbne Døre vil arbejde sammen med Judith Proctor og Aralias for at importere Hermit Library til en separat, søgbar samling med sin egen identitet. Med tiden vil linkene til den gamle side omdirigere til samlingen på AO3, så værkerne stadig kan findes gennem deres gamle URL'er. Vi vil starte med at importere værker fra Hermit Library til AO3-samlingen i juli.

    Hvad betyder dette for ophavsmænd, der har værker på Hermit Library?

    Det er her, vi beder om din hjælp!

    1. Hvis du allerede har en AO3-konto og har publiceret dine værker fra Hermit Library dér, kontakt da venligst moderatorerne (hermitlibrary.archivist [at] gmail.com) med dit (dine) Hermit Library-pseudonym(er) og e-mailadresse(r), så vi ikke importerer dine værker.

    For instruktioner, om at massetilføje værker til den nye samling på AO3, Hermit Library, se Åbne Døre-hjemmesiden.

    2. Hvis du ikke allerede har en AO3-konto, men gerne vil have én for at importere dine værker selv, kontakt da venligst moderatorerne (hermitlibrary.archivist [at] gmail.com) med dit (dine) Hermit Library-pseudonym(er) og den e-mailadresse, du gerne vil have sendt din AO3-invitation til.

    For instruktioner om at uploade værker og tilføje dem til Hermit Library-samlingen, se Åbne Døre-hjemmesiden.

    3. Hvis du ikke allerede har en AO3-konto, men gerne vil have en, samt hjælp til at importere dine værker, kontakt da venligst moderatorerne (hermitlibrary.archivist [at] gmail.com) med dit (dine) Hermit Library-pseudonym(er) og den e-mailadresse, du gerne vil have sendt din AO3-invitation til.
    Giv os besked om dit AO3-navn, når din konto er sat op, så vi kan overføre dine værker til dig, når de er blevet importeret.

    4. Hvis du IKKE vil have, at dine værker bliver flyttet, kontakt da venligst moderatorerne (hermitlibrary.archivist [at] gmail.com) med dit (dine) Hermit Library-pseudonym(er) og e-mailadresse(r), så vi ikke tilføjer dem.

    Hvis du ikke har noget imod, at dine værker bliver bevaret, men ikke længere vil have dit navn på dem, giv os endelig besked om det også - vi kan fratage dig ophavsretten på dine værker i stedet for at efterlade dem til at blive slettet.

    Alle værker arkiveret på vegne af ophavsmanden vil blive tillagt ophavsmandens navn i resuméet af værket. Efterhånden som vi importerer værker, vil vi sende notifikationer til den e-mailadresse, der er forbundet med værket. Når alle værker er gjort rede for, vil Åbne Døre-komitéen sætte omdirigeringen af URL'erne op, og det orginale Bibliotek vil blive lukket permanent.

    Alle importerede værker vil blive indstillet til kun at kunne ses af AO3-brugere, der er logget ind. Når du gør krav på dine værker, kan du gøre dem offentligt tilgængelige, hvis du vil. Efter 30 dage vil alle værker, der ikke er blevet gjort krav på, blive gjort tilgængelige for alle besøgende.

    Hvis du ikke længere har adgang til den e-mailkonto tilhørende din konto på Hermit Library, kontakt da venligst moderatorerne (hermitlibrary.archivist [at] gmail.com) for hjælp til at bekræfte din identitet. (Hvis du har publiceret dine værker andre steder eller har en nem måde at bekræfte, at det er dine, så inkludér det venligst!)

    Hvis du stadig har spørgsmål...

    Hvis du har yderligere spørgsmål, kan du besøge Åbne Døre-FAQ-siden, kontakte moderatorerne (hermitlibrary.archivist [at] gmail.com) eller Åbne Døre-komitéen eller efterlad en kommentar på dette indlæg, og vi vil svare, så hurtigt vi kan.

    Vi vil også blive glade, hvis fans kan hjælpe os med at bevare Hermit Librarys historie og Hermit.org på Fanlore. Hvis du ikke har prøvet at redigere en wiki før, intet problem! Tjek new visitor portal, eller spørg Fanlore-gartnerne om tips.

    Vi er begejstrede for at kunne hjælpe med at bevare Hermit Library!

  • Hermit Library przenosi się na AO3

    Message type:

    The Hermit Library, archiwum fanowskich prac Blake 7, przenosi się do Archive of Our Own – AO3 (Naszego Własnego Archiwum).

    W tym poście:

    Wyjaśnienia wstępne

    Hermit Library jest archiwum twórczości fanowskiej Blake 7, prowadzonym na stronie Hermit.org. Założone i prowadzone w 2000 roku przez autorkę i wydawczynię printzine, Judith Proctor, było jednym z pierwszych archiwów twórczości fanowskiej różnych autorów i przez wiele lat największym internetowym archiwum Blake 7. Zawiera wiele opowiadań i powieści, które na początku pojawiały się w zinach, szczególnie tych wydawanych przez Judith.

    Podczas okresu niedostępności Hermit.org w 2014 roku, fanka Aralias skontaktowała się z Judith, by dowiedzieć się, czy strona już nigdy nie będzie dostępna, czy też da się ją ocalić. Mimo, że strona ostatecznie powróciła, Aralias chciała mieć całkowitą pewność, że twórczość zamieszczona na Hermit nigdy więcej nie zniknie i spytała, czy mogła by ona zostać przeniesiona na AO3, gdzie będzie bezpieczna (a szukanie ze względu na pairingi będzie w końcu możliwe!). Judith wyraziła zgodę. Postanowiła również przenieść pozostałą treść Hermit.org (taką jak recenzje zinów, czy kompletna historia kariery Sevenclopii i Garetha Thomasa) na Fanlore lub inne archiwa, po czym zamknąć stronę.

    Drzwi Otwarte będą współpracować z Judith Proctor i Aralias by przenieść Hermit Library do oddzielnej, łatwej do przeszukania kolekcji posiadającej swoją własną tożsamość.
    Ostatecznie, linki prowadzące do starej strony będą przekierowywać do kolekcji na AO3, by prace wciąż mogły być odnajdywane poprzez ich stare URL. Proces importowania prac z Hermit Library do kolekcji AO3 rozpoczniemy w lipcu.

    Co oznacza to dla twórców posiadających prace na Hermit Library?

    Właśnie tu prosimy o twoją pomoc!

    1. Jeśli posiadasz już konto na AO3 i publikowałaś/eś tam swoje prace z Hermit Library, prosimy skontaktować się z moderatorami (hermitlibrary.archivist@gmail.com), podając swój pseudonim (pseudonimy) oraz adres (adresy) email, abyśmy nie importowali twoich prac.

    W celu uzyskania instrukcji dotyczących masowego dodawania prac do nowej kolekcji Hermit Library w AO3, odwiedź stronę Drzwi Otwartych.

    2. Jeśli nie masz konta na AO3, ale chcesz importować swoje prace samodzielnie, prosimy skontaktować się z moderatorami (hermitlibrary.archivist@gmail.com) podając swój pseudonim (pseudonimy) z Hermit Library oraz preferowany adres email, na który mamy wysłać zaproszenie do AO3.

    W celu uzyskania instrukcji odnośnie zamieszczania prac i dodawania ich do kolekcji Hermit Library, prosimy odwiedzić stronę Drzwi Otwartych.

    3. Jeśli nie masz jeszcze konta na AO3, ale chcesz je założyć, jak i również otrzymać pomoc przy importowaniu twoich prac, prosimy skontaktować się z moderatorami (hermitlibrary.archivist@gmail.com) podając swój pseudonim (pseudonimy) z Hermit Library oraz preferowany adres email, na który mamy wysłać zaproszenie do AO3. Gdy twoje konto będzie już założone, prosimy o podanie nam twojej nazwy użytkownika, możemy wtedy przypisać ci twoje zaimportowane prace.

    4. Jeśli NIE chcesz, by twoje prace zostały przeniesione, prosimy skontaktować się z moderatorami (hermitlibrary.archivist@gmail.com) podając swój pseudonim (pseudonimy) z Hermit Library oraz adres email, abyśmy wiedzieli, żeby ich nie dodawać.

    Jeśli nie masz nic przeciwko temu, żeby zostały zachowane, ale nie chcesz aby nadal zawierały twoje imię, również daj nam o tym znać — możemy osierocić twoje prace zamiast pozostawić je i potem skasować

    Wszystkie prace zarchiwizowane w imieniu autora będą miały przypisane jego imię w streszczeniu pracy. W trakcie importowania prac będziemy wysyłać powiadomienia mailowe na adresy związane z daną pracą. Gdy wszystkie prace zostaną przeniesione, komisja Drzwi Otwartych stworzy przekierowujące adresy URL, a pierwotna Library zostanie ostatecznie zamknięta.

    Wszystkie zaimportowane prace będą dostępne do wglądu jedynie zalogowanym użytkownikom AO3. Kiedy przejmiesz swoje prace, możesz udostępnić je do oglądania przez wszystkich. Po 30 dniach wszystkie zaimportowane prace, które nie zostały przejęte przez autorów, zostaną ustawione jako widoczne dla odwiedzających.

    Jeśli nie masz już dostępu do konta mailowego związanego z kontem na Hermit Library, prosimy skontaktować się z moderatorami (hermitlibrary.archivist@gmail.com) po pomoc przy weryfikowaniu twojej tożsamości. (Prosimy daj nam znać jeśli zamieściłaś/eś swoje prace w innym miejscu, lub masz łatwy sposób na potwierdzenie twojego autorstwa).

    Jeśli nadal masz pytania...

    Jeśli masz więcej pytań, prosimy odwiedzić stronę FAQ Drzwi Otwartych, skontaktować się z moderatorami (hermitlibrary.archivist@gmail.com), komisją Drzwi Otwartych
    lub też zostawić komentarz pod tym postem, a my odpowiemy tak szybko, jak tylko damy radę.

    Byłoby wspaniale, gdyby fani pomogli nam zachować historię Hermit Library i Hermit.org. Jeśli edytowanie wiki to dla ciebie nowość, nie przejmuj się! Sprawdź portal nowo odwiedzających lub lub poproś Administratorów Fanlore o wskazówki.

    Bardzo cieszymy się, że możemy pomóc w zachowaniu Hermit Library!
