Open Doors Celebrates the Completion of 16 Archive Imports in 2017!

Open Doors is pleased to announce the completion of 16 archive import projects in 2017, a total of over 42,000 works! We hope that you will find old and new favorites in the collections listed below.


Turkfanfiction.net

Completed: March 2017

Turkfanfiction.net was a Turkish-language multi-fandom fanfiction and original fiction archive founded by Glenien in 2007 with the goal of bringing together all Turkish fanfiction writers and readers, while educating and advising them on fandom culture. As a large, multi-fandom, non-English, manually imported archive, Turkfanfiction.net was one of our most complex import projects ever! We would like to especially highlight the contributions of Glenien and her team of import volunteers for completing the import in a matter of months, the Translation Committee’s Turkish team for taking on a lot of extra expedited work, and the Tag Wrangling Committee for organizing nearly 400 tags across about 20 fandoms.
