Just a reminder that Open Doors will be holding two public chats on Campfire (the online chat platform the OTW uses) for Yuletide participants. The first will be on April 26, 4pm UTC (what time is that in my timezone?)
Anyone who has questions about the process is welcome to join the Open Doors team at those chats, and we’ll do our best to answer you. We would also like to direct Yuletide participants to our announcement post as it has been updated with information about the import of comments. Please read the section beginning with Edited to say as we will NOT be able to add backdated comments to works after the import in May.
For those Yuletide participants who didn’t want to wait for us to import your fic to AO3 for you, Open Doors would like to encourage you to add your works to the Yuletide subcollections they belong to. It’s not required, but it’d be great to keep things together! And it would make our upcoming import of the old Yuletide archive run that much more smoothly. To add multiple fics to a collection at once, here’s how:
- While logged into your account, hover over your pseud and select “My Works”.
- From that page, click “Edit Works” (to mass edit works).
Select all the story titles that you want to transfer into a given collection. Click “Edit”.
- In the second section of this page is the option to “Add To Collections”. Type in “Yuletide” followed by the year (e.g., “Yuletide 2008”) or “New Year’s Resolution” followed by the year (e.g. “New Year’s Resolution 2011”) and it should be appear in the autofill. Note: Don’t change anything else, or it will overwrite what was originally on the story.)
- Click “Update All Works” at the bottom.
For a visual view of the above steps we have a few slides to help.
If you have questions, or want to know how Open Doors can help your archive, shoot us an email through our contact form.
