852 Prospect and the MERGE TO A03!!! IMPORTANT! - alyburns' (aka sideburns & alyjude) Hiding Place

852 Prospect and the MERGE TO A03!!! IMPORTANT!
I know this has already been announced, but I thought it worth the effort to post about it again due to the amount of stories that are currently "unclaimed" during the merge.

As we all know, TS authors have been posting stories to 852 for years, and  naturally, during that time, emails for the authors changed several times! But unfortunately, the new emails were rarely updated. Now that's become an issue for the merge of 852 with A03. 852 has a new archivist now and it's our wonderful Merlin (aka; Regina and magician113 & magician114 on LJ); , she who remembers every story ever written and can find them at a moment's notice, thought another call out to all authors who have stories on 852 and who'd want them to remain with 852 during the merge - and have them get in touch with Regina (at merlin.113@hotmail.com) so they can update emails and thus have their stories 'claimed'.

Some people have balked a bit at the fact that you have to be a member (and receive an invite) before you can read the 852 stories, but this is temporary! And EASY to do if you'll just contact Regina.

To read a more complete explanation of the merge and how it works, go to Regina's post.
I think everyone would agree with me that losing any authors from 852; losing any of our favorite stories because the information didn't get out and about enough, would be truly horrible - so help spread the word! Email YOUR favorite authors and make sure they're working on getting their stories claimed. :)

I know it's going to be very nice for me to have both my TS stories and SG stories in ONE archive, and I'll be able to use both my pseudonyms without confusing anyone! :)

So please spread the word, guys - 852 Prospect is still alive and well over at A03, but there are tons of authors we need to contact so they can keep their stories with 852!!!

Woohoo! AO3 is doing a great job in so many ways. It's always better to have the stories in more places (provided the author agrees).

And Regina is such a GREAT archivist for us and 852 working with A03! YAHOO!

Am I correct

So if I understand all of this. If I have accepted an invite to AO3 and claimed my stories I am okay?

Re: Am I correct

You sure are. :) You should be able to 'see' your stories if all went well, Susan! :)

Re: Am I correct

Great! I was thinking of uploading my k/s fics at ao3 some time ago. Now I have a start.

Are you going to claim your stories on AO3? I remember you weren't interested in joining a while ago.

I'll be importing my TS stories from various places over to AO3 and the same with my Stargate stories. I don't have any to 'claim' because all my stories were removed from 852 quite awhile ago and I was banned from the archive. Oh, there was one story left: Comedy of Errors, but that's because I posted that one under my "Sideburns" pseudonym - so yeah, I'll make sure to claim that one! LOL!

I'm really glad Regina is the archivist for 852 now and that's why I'm happy to join in the merge and have all my fics there - as well as my happy home at the Artifact Storage Room3, the Alpha Gate, Area 52 and of course, the Basement (where I also hope to get all my stuff loaded - some day! LOL!) :)
