I'm not knocking smut here, I've read it on occasion but my main focus in fandom isn't shipping so being a non-ship writer on AO3 can be a lonely life. I'm now thinking of heading back over to fanfiction & posting my stuff there.On Thursday, May 21 (UTC), we'll be doing some server work that includes changing the IP address we use to send emails. As a result of this change, we're anticipating a large number of undelivered emails while email providers get used to our new IP address.

Archive of our Own vs. FanLib: Why they are not succeeding is an article by Laura Hale.. It was posted to Fan History Wiki's blog on June 29, 2009, and aside from the title, does not mention Archive of Our Own, simply referring to it as this group, people, and they.. It includes the number of fanfics posted to Archive of Our Own as of June 29, 2009 as compared to the number posted to. Personally, I like AO3 by a long shot. I was first introduced to fanfiction by FFN, like many others. I was actually introduced to AO3 last among the usual archives, but I found that it was far better in my opinion over the other archives. You can now filter out mature material, though not completely. You can pick a certain 'tag', such as General, Teen and Up, Mature, and Explicit. The tagging can indeed get messy, but I personally do not mind the tags as they have connected similar tags to one another and helped make it much easier to navigate. And one of my issues about FFN is the aesthetic of the page. The colors are very plain and the text is generally small. AO3 has added a feature where you can use skins to change the look of your page and/or your work, which I find useful since my eyes are rather unresponsive if the colors are too contrasting. Also, something that I have seen multiple times and I definitely agree to is the sense of community in AO3 being better than that of FFN. I also must write here that the quality of works is much better in AO3, though there are still bad quality works. However, compared to FFN, the works of AO3 are better in average. An Archive of Our Own, a project of the Organization for Transformative Works Originally Posted on FanFiction.Net - Works | Archive of Our Own Main Conten I use both, and a lot of other platforms, such as Qutev (is that how you spell it?) and Wattpad. I love both, my only complaint for FF.N is that you can’t add pictures to my stories.On June 11, 2012, Lucy Pearson posted on the OTW news site that there were over 17,000 requests in the queue for invitation codes. However, since the beginning of 2013, it appears that the wait time for invite codes has decreased considerably; it may take only a week or less to get access to a user account.

So I was thinking about joining Ao3 since I enjoyed many fics from there as well but the invitation thing has me worried and I have no idea if AO3 wants me to use some writing software like FFN wants. Or is it like Wattpad (which I don't use anymore) where I can just go and start writing right away, which was the only I liked about Wattpad. AO3 - Archive of Our Own. Looking for abbreviations of AO3? It is Archive of Our Own. Archive of Our Own listed as AO3 References in periodicals archive? Anyone looking for proof only needs to take a cursory look at sites like Fanfiction.net and Archive Of Our Own I can't really choose either since I have not checked out AO3 that much. Also, loads of stories in FFnet are crap and it's getting harder and harder to find only the best and well written stories. Plus there's so much slash pairings and Yaoi compared to hetero pairings which I prefer. AO3 looked complicated to me, as well. Thank you so much for this article! As a (mobile) reader, I prefer AO3, but they both have advantages and disadvantages. Some of AO3's advantages: •There are way more features in the bookmarks. You can have hidden bookmarks, normal bookmarks, and recommended bookmarks, you can tag bookmarks and write comments for the bookmarks

Click on the Reviews button. Four buttons will open up below it. Sc.. I like many others did use fanfiction.net since a young age and would generally only read fic's on that site, but now after finding Archive of Our Own/ AO3 I rarely read works via fanfiction.net other than updates from long standing fics. I find AO3 easier to navigate and easier to read from. Personally i also think there is a lot less shit on the site compared to the quantity of crap on Fanfiction.net. I still submit to both websites but I no longer read or search on fanfiction.net instead preferring AO3. While some dislike the tagging system on AO3, I much prefer it as it does not stop certain types of fics being easily found, unlike on fanfiction.net where it is to generic to search for things such as rape.I find FF.Net messy and it's layout difficult, and what I love about AO3 is you can search using the amounts of hits or Kudos the stories have, which means that if the numbers are high you know you're in for a popular (and [hopefully] awesome) fic. I waited a couple of months to get an account, but when the email did arrive if was definitely worth it; there's a great bookmarking feature and a email service which lets you know whenever a Work In Progress (WIP) fic you've subscribed to has been updated. Also, it has more anime fanfic which may be important for some. When I was young, I was obsessed with anime so I too started with FFN but veered away from them in my later years. With AO3, I am exposed to many different fandoms I was unfamiliar with which would mean I am not entirely focused on animes and mangas. Still I like to go back to FFN to read some anime fanfics every once in a while.
Wow, this is quite the impressive lens. There's tons of well researched info on here. I've spent a lot of time on FFnet as a reader and writer, but have only read one story on AO3. It takes an incredible amount of time to truly become familiar with either site outside of just one fandom.First of all, there IS a filter out tag now and it has been there since I first started using Ao3 about more than a year ago. You can filter in or out adult content, any tag, ship, or crossovers in general if you want to.A bunch of fluffy/angsty oneshots about Steve, Tony, and Peter as a family. Will also include domestic Avengers. Requests are currently OPENI can't say I've actually ever been to AO3 - I have a few pieces up on FF.net from back in the day, but that was years ago. Very nice lens!
AO3 has even improved on several of the things that were listed as complaints here, like the ability to filter whether you see crossovers, or to filter out certain tags entirely. Uploading and even editing is easier than on FF, because the AO3 uploading system is copy-and-paste-text based. If you need to go back and edit a bad wording or detail, you don't have to edit the original file and reupload.It was originally proposed in 2007, in part as a reaction against the recently launched archive FanLib. FanLib faced deep criticism by the media fandom community at the time for its corporate sponsorship and funding and apparent lack of understanding of how fan communities truly operated. At the time, many older, smaller fanfiction archives were disappearing as free hosting sites popular in the 1990s and early 2000s were disappearing or going out of business.
I, for one, find Fanfiction.net an easier source for reading. Archive Of Our own, I'm unsure how it functions, but I'm certain that Fanfiction.net it better. Fanfiction.net has separated columns to direct you to that specific category. For example, If you go onto Fanfiction.net, you have numerous options ranging from Anime to Games Archive Panic: 12 overall categories, with numerous fandoms in each category, meaning thousands and thousands of stories. Good luck. Broken Base: The arguments over stories containing problematic elements such as dub-con, non-con/rape, underage sex, violence and torture, etc., and whether the site's lenient policies and tagging system lets writers create and readers consume these stories. Ever wanted to fuck a Pokemon? Me too, but they don't exist, so reading about it is the next best thing! There is a three-parter in the work, but besides that, all of the stories are one-offs. So sit back, relax, and delve into the wonderful, tight, wet world of Pokemon!
AO3 has the best search engine of any fanfic site I've ever seen. And there are ways to filter out things. You just have to go into the 'filter' section and in the little box that says 'search within results', just write -"[insert tag here]" and it will. You can also do things like Tony -Rogers, if you don't want a tag for Tony Stark/Steve RogersGiulia Ferrini, an Italian exchange student, becomes the new tenant of 221C Baker Street, entering into a mysterious, fascinating world populated by ominous presences that seem to intertwine with her cryptic backstory.~~~~~~"You are an exchange student who has recently moved to London.

In 2011, I got my start writing fic on fanfiction.net, and this site served me well at that time. However, since that time I have begun posting my newer work at Archive of Our Own, which I personally find to be a much more user-friendly (and I say that as both a fic reader and a fic writer) site All in all, I think we're still missing a site that "has it all" (and I think it unlikely that it will ever exist on a grand scale) but both AO3 and FFN have their strong points where people lean towards the site that fits their wishes best. A short introduction to an alternative way to organize fiction (something other than alpha!) by way of Archive of our Own, the fanfiction archive. You wouldn't believe how hard it was to keep it.

I will say that, as things currently stand, and as someone who has used both sites, I definitely prefer AO3 nowadays. In all honesty, the only reasons I post things back to FF.net are to get feedback from anyone in the fandom who uses that but not AO3, and to have a better idea of my traffic stats for a fic.

Chapters: 1/1 Fandom: Avatar: The Last Airbende Plagiarism can be a major problem in fanfiction, as some think that because "all fanfiction is stealing," it's perfectly fine to steal another's words and claim them as one's own. That can be a fanfiction author stealing content word-for-word from a published author's work, or from another fanfiction author (oftentimes only changing characters' names and minor details to publish a story in a different fandom.) When such incidents have occurred on FanFiction.Net, they have generally been ignored by the site administrators.FanFiction.Net may be the largest fanfiction archive on the Internet, but it's not everyone's favorite site by a long shot. These are some of the common criticisms of the site.Awesome to see an author updating their articles even if they are few years old. Good on you on, though some of the link to other fanfic archives are now dead, may want to update that list otherwise great article. I personally use both because really i think its required to get all the stories, honestly if exclusions were available to AO3 i think it would be far superiour as a reader over ffnet
A strange and ugly discourse has reared its head on social media the last few times that fandom mothership and Hugo Award-winning website Archive of Our Own conducted successful fundraising drives I usually read stories from Fanfiction.net but have recently found more stories on ArchiveofOurOwn.org (AO3). Really have been enjoying the stories I've found on this site but I can't figure out how to 'Follow' the stories like how you can do so on Fanfiction.net in order to get email alerts whenever there are chapter updates.

Writing Questions Genuinely curious here - I've been a (fairly) regular contributor to FF.net , though slacking lately, but also managed to get around to taking a look at AO3 more recently and have enjoyed some of the stuff I found on there, including an ingenious epistolary fic for a book. A fanfiction website that is about 9000x better than ff.net could ever wish to be, despite the fact that it's still in beta
There's also something about AO3 that makes authors more deliberate in their actions - I've yet to see one story prefaced by "Yeah this is a crappy story i wrot during math class dont hate me to hard lolololol!!1!" which I see all. the. time. on FF.net . Too many people don't care how awful their work is, they just want someone to acknowledge their existence. I feel like early on FF.net there was a spirit of fostering new fanfic writers that led to writers finding beta-readers and improving. I don't see that am much anymore, and I have on AO3. FanFiction.Net (or FF.Net or FFN for short) is the biggest archive for FanFic on the Internet, offering millions of stories, with a total length somewhere in the range of fifteen to twenty-five billion words. As of November 2017, the number of FF.Net user accounts created exceeded 10 million. FF.Net is free and moderately user-friendly But the reviews I've received on FFN so far have been crap. On AO3 I've found readers are far more generous with their comments. Some of the discussions we have in the comments thread are very satisfying, and can also be read and contributed to by others. On FFN no one sees my replies to readers or our discussion, and I find that detracts from the sense of community.

I'm reading about 15 different fandoms on AO3 and have never come across that "rule" for concrit. The golden rule is to my knowledge to stay polite, as everywhere else in fandom. I won't say it's not a thing in some fandoms, I have just never come across it.I think FFN is much surperior, and unless you're in the Glee fandom, or like anime, there's a lot of amazing stories out there for you to read. And, let's face it, AO3 is a disaster right now. Maybe once it finally gets out of beta, it'll be better, but it's borderline unusable right now. Don't even get me started on the tags. They make me want to disembowel myself with a blunt teaspoon. It's a disaster, and there's so much tagging and stupid tags, and variation on tags, and it's just really ____ed up. And AO3 is really ugly. FFn's simplicity is oft complained about, but I think complex site's with lots of bright graphics and such are distracting to the story.There's also quite a bit more community at FFN. You actually get, y'know, reviews.

Quick disclaimer: I've always used Fanfiction.net to post my fanfics. I've never done the same for Archive of Our Own, and so I can't speak personally for what it's like to post things on Archive of Our Own and how getting reviews (as well as replying to them) work Invitation Requests To get a free Archive of Our Own account, you need an Invitation.

I used ff.net for years, but it's a lot of trawling. If you like sonething/less popular, your ability to find quality takes a steep, steep nosedive. It's best for crossovers and has a bit more for obscure fandoms, quality notwithstanding. For older fandoms, it contains the "seminal" works as well.
On FFN, I like that the hits show me which chapters were read and how many chapters. AO3 only shows me how many visits to the story were made, so someone could have clicked on my first chapter and gone "Nah", and stopped reading, and another might have been enthralled and read all 40 chapters at one shot, but each would register as 1 hit. The Archive of Our Own aka AO3 is a multi-fandom archive built and run almost entirely by volunteers. It is currently designed to host text-based fanfiction. It is hosted on servers owned by the Organization for Transformative Works and therefore not vulnerable to a commercial hosting company deciding they don't like the fanworks. Archive of Our Own gained popularity when FanFiction.Net. when jj is offered travelling the world with his best friends for 6 months he sees no reason to say no, but he soon realises there can't be good without bad in life. A Fan Fic Archive is a site specifically set up to house fanfiction. As of 2011, Livejournal and Fanfiction.net had been the major sites for creative works in the Supernatural fandom, and had acted as defacto archives for the bulk of Supernatural fan fic. As of 2015, many authors are now using Archive Of Our Own, a multifandom archive run by the Organization of Transformative Works

Archive of Our Own (AO3) is a nonprofit open source repository for fanfiction (fic) contributed by users.

The doctors were never the ones who should be on the front-lines, just because they were so important when the battle was over.' The Archive of Our Own (AO3), the Hugo-winning fanfiction website, is the latest casualty of Chinese censorship, amid a continued crackdown in the country on queer content, sexually explicit. 我们自己的档案是一个非营利性的开源存储库，用于用户提供的扇小说。该网站于2008年由本组织为变革性工作创建，并于2009. 1 29680 Advanced Composition Milburn 9/29/14 Fanfiction.Net vs. Archive of Our Own Fanfiction.Net and Archive of Our Own allow users to publish and read fanfiction, which connects fans to each other through what they love. Archive of Our Own (also known as AO3) and Fanfiction.Net both suit needs of fans, but AO3 better caters to teens that can handle more mature content and is the more. But because it provides more anime fanfic, I also noticed many of the users are younger. This would mean that the writers do not have as much experience writing fanfics which means no character development, mary sues, cliches, no plot development, bad grammar and bad spelling.
I devoured almost every story on it and well latter I decided to look for another site for different stories and found archive of our own.I prefer AO3 over FF, and not just because of the adult content, but also because I can read fics even when I'm not connected to the Internet ( you can easily download them ). I read on both sites, but I can't be bothered to post anything on FF because I'd have to censor some parts or completely remove some chapters and that doesn't sit well with me. There are some mature stories that aren't just porn without plot, but if you start removing the key parts of such a fic, then you're simply censoring yourself for the sake of posting it on a site, and that's not something I wish to do. I don't mind the lack of reviews on AO3, especially since the fandom I'm writing for isn't even that big, but the Kudos button is nice, so that's enough. I also find it really hard to edit fics on FF, or maybe I'm doing something wrong, I don'y know, but AO3 is much easier to use and I simply adore the interface.The age limit for site registration is now 13. As of 2018, the site has over 10 million users and stories posted in over 40 languages. Its largest fandom is Harry Potter, with more than 800,000 stories posted in that category alone. Naruto is the second most popular fandom, with more than 425,000 stories.Archive of Our Own (AO3) first launched in beta-testing on November 14, 2009. The archive is a project of the Organization for Transformative Works, a non-profit organization that promotes the legitimate and transformative nature of fan works, including fanfiction, fan vids, and fan art.Many authors seem to view AO3 as a convenient "storage bin" for all of their old works, dropping stories there but rarely reading others' works. Many fan communities even with large numbers of stories on AO3 are far more active elsewhere, such as on LiveJournal communities or smaller, fandom-focused websites. With the "Kudos" button feature, readers are less likely to leave actual feedback or interact with authors, since they can just hit "Kudos" to show that they read and at least moderately enjoyed a story.
Heck, you can even do this for translation plagiarism (person translates work without author's consent and claims work is theirs), which was the bane of the Spanish Harry Potter fandom for a while, and I never had any problems taking down bad stories. (That said, secretphoenix879 used to be a PROLIFIC Spanish-to-English Yu-Gi-Oh! plagiariser but then the admins nuked her account).I've used both sites, and I really don't get AO3's structure. When you click on a tag, you have to sort through a bunch of stuff you don't want, and it's a pain to deal with overall. Although at times it's quite useful, I generally dislike the tag system. With ff.net, I find it much easier to find what I'm looking for. Also, in regards to what some have said about the quality, I honestly don't think it's that bad. Sure, there are fics with bad grammar and spelling- but not everyone is a great writer, and it seems to me that a lot of people don't respect that enough. Also, I haven't found this to happen exceedingly often. There was one instance of an author spelling the main character's name five different ways- all of them wrong. This is just my opinion of course, but I'm not really against the purge. I have found way too many misclassified fanfics, and as a fourteen year old, I don't think it's right to find an extremely graphic sex scene under a T rating. I'd like to preserve my innocence, thank you. It would have been alright if they had kept the MA rating, and just kept it separate from the rest. What marketing strategies does Archiveofourown use?

They've wound up serving different purposes. Many of us hoped AO3 would be the answer to the problems of ffnet (almost wrote ficwad there, gack), but it introduced a host of new problems. Searching and the lack of community are the biggest ones, although the migration of most of my fandom to DW and some to Tumblr has the spillover effect that people are commenting a little more on AO3 where we'll see it. On the other hand, AO3 makes challenge communities and exchanges so much easier, and I am really grateful to be able to integrate my own illustrations and reader-submitted fanart right into the story -- or, heck, share my fanart!AO3's download and reader functions make it easier for those who have migrated to tablets (they are really helpful if one has minor vision issues). I like AO3 better. But in practice, I get more reedback on ffnet. So I cross-post. I think the first question raises a very interesting point - or rather, what it implies does. That being said, I find myself okay with this because of the intent I see being behind it - that is, as a backup in case FF.net itself dies, which is not a decision on the part of the authors. I can't see many people wanting to download 100GB unless that occurs - and for specific stories, there are. . Some feel as though AO3 has become little more than a "smut dump" (see comments at bottom of this page), with certain fandom's categories completely predominated by sexually explicit material. This is why some wish there was an easy way to filter out content—both stories themselves and story titles/tags/summaries—if undesirable or intended for adults only.

However, registered members could pay for a premium account if they wanted to avoid ads and have access to other special functions. This function was not heavily embraced by users and was eventually abandoned in favor of advertising support only.However, I would have to say FFN does offer advantages. I do like the crossover system offered in this website. It is literally impossible to go through all of this in AO3.

Fanfiction is a widely popular hobby on the Internet today. Fanfiction has been around for decades, shared in fanzines or passed-around, type-written stories. But since the 1990s, there has been an explosion of fanfiction websites and archives online. Follow/Fav Life of our Own. By: Moonlit Writer's Sin. What began as an unlikely friendship between #18 and Gohan rapidly spiraled into a mutual dumping ground of frustrations with their lives, which in turn spiraled into something rather forbidden in turn. For both involved, however, happiness awaited them. Smut.. Bad-quality fanfics is an issue everywhere not just FFN - I do find that you can sort some of it on FFN by looking at favorites/ follows/ reviews but it is far from perfect (and it doesn't help that lots of people enjoy "bad" stories or devices like Mary Sues).Many users have expressed annoyance that there is no way to search on AO3 to "filter out" unwanted tags, characters, or types of fiction. For instance, if a Harry Potter fan didn't want to read about any stories heavily featuring Severus Snape, or slash as a tag, you can't do that. In very large fandoms, this makes searching for stories a person actually wants to read rather difficult, particularly as there is also a 1,000 work cap on search results. Now that the archive allows for the hosting of meta posts and they are mixed in with the fiction, more users are annoyed by this inability to filter out the types of content they do not want to read.

I reverted the two recent revisions by yourstrulyhelen because while the statements are true that AO3 has recently introduced a way to filter tags, this page is about the 2012 article by sockii rather than AO3 in general. I'll add the tag filter statements to.
I personally believe AO3 is so much better than FanFiction. I use both and still like FFN a lot, but I've noticed that so many of the fanfics on FFN are so bad! They have so many mistakes. I don't mean grammar. I mean the misspelling of simple words and not even capitalizing the first word in a sentence and proper nouns. I feel like because FFN has banned M fanfics, many of the older, more experienced writers go to AO3, and poor FFN is stuck with those 10 year olds who can't write (not saying that I can even though I'm older, but they definitely can't either). Even though I don't really read M fics, I like to have the option. The people who do get away with writing those on FFN are usually really bad at writing them, while writers on AO3 write it more tastefully. That said, FFN does have some good writers. Still, AO3 definitely is better.I do have to say though, it's true that Fanfiction.net is more popular. You'll probably get more feedback there. That's just my experience though.FanFiction.Net also features active forums for users to discuss their fandoms; communities of moderated, hand-selected fiction; and a list of beta readers available to help authors improve their work. The site now has a mobile version and RSS feeds one can subscribe to in order to see the latest works in particular fandoms, as well as apps for iPhone and Android.The MA purge on FF sort of bothers me, but I haven't any of my stories or any other favorite stories of mine get removed for the content. Many people still freely write the genre on the site and haven't gotten whacked for it yet. Maybe we're just lucky, and I'll agree that at least with AO3 there's no need to fear the possible reporting of your stories. But if I want to read something other than smut, AO3 doesn't really offer much in that respect. I'd have to run over to FF anyway to read something decent that's lower than an M rating.
I never had any idea sites like this were out there. Though I don't do it much, I do creative writing exercises involving my favorite characters (Conan, James Bond, etc.). I'll have to check out both sites and decide on one. Thanks.The tinestamp says thia eas updated in 2019 but it obviously wasn't, as half the AO3 complaints no longer apply. It does have exclusion filters now, for pairings and characters and explicit works. That's three of the bullet points right there. It also now has inclusion and exclusion options for crossover fics. You can keep them in, or toss them out, or choose ONLY those.

It's a BIG archive, make it EASY for the admins. I wonder how many reports they get that they can't go through them at all?However, the last thing that irked me and made me go full on AO3 was the purge at FFN. One day, I noticed all my favorite fanfics somehow disappeared. I loved those stories. I favorited and bookmarked those stories. Then one day, they were all gone. No matter how much I searched, they were not there. So many good fanfics which may have been considered mature content but did not have smut were just gone. Forever. To this day, I am haunted by the paths those stories could have been taken if they were not deleted. I would rather prefer to know the authors lost inspiration and abandoned the story rather than knowing they were deleted and it took too much work to rewrite the whole thing so they abandoned it. Announcing our new, mobile-friendly beta design! A Teaspoon And An Open Mind now has a new, mobile-friendly beta design! Because this is still a beta, it's not enabled by default, but it's easy to set it up on your account by selecting the neospoon skin from the Skins dropdown in Account > Edit Personal Information
Well, that's all I can think of for now. Personally, I mainly use AO3 for reading because a lot of fandoms I'm in seem to upload more stories there. But if the story is crossposted in FFN, I'll read it there 'cause I like 'Night Mode'I've gotta say, I've only ever gotten unsolicted concrit on AO3 (not that I minded, some of it was kinda-sorta helpful), so I guess not everyone follows that unwritten rule. Or maybe not everyone knows about it.ff.net is older and a lot more popular, so I go on there to post my works. So far, on AO3, the stories I've read are fine grammatically. The adult content on there versus the adult content still stuck on ff.net are equally bad.As for reading, I read on both. AO3 is still relatively new so I can't find a lot of stuff on there, but most of what I do find is good enough. As for ff.net, there's a significantly greater percentage of bad stories, but the good stories are very good - and simply due to the huge amount of stories on ff.net, even a small fraction of the good stories outnumber those on AO3. There's a lot more sifting to do to find them, though. I'm pretty sure that AO3 is just so much cleaner of poorly written fanfiction because a majority of authors (that is, the terrible ones) haven't found it yet. Once it becomes more popular it will clog up just like ff.net.
I started in FF.net when I was very young and it was all that I knew, but I accidentaly found AO3 and just really fell in love. I still post on both sites but read exclusively on AO3, I still venture out to find someting in FF by the stroke of luck and do recognize that some fandoms are way bigger in FF than AO3 but man the amount of badly written, badly carachterized, "I suck at summaries" kind of stories is 90% of FF. Honestly I just prefer to wait for updates in my subscribed inbox.Fan Fiction.Net has a much more variety of Fluff, it's more heart melting the way he is portrayed on those stories.
level 22 points · 2 years ago(eg don't leave concrit unless they explicitly ask for it, which I didn't know was a thing anywhere)I prefer ao3 of the two- a lot of its problems have actually be fixed in the recent years. I use it and wattpad most often but FanFiction.net And QUOTEV can hold their own
'That was one of the things Poe liked about you. No matter how bad the mission went, he could always find you with your hands deep down in someone's guts the moment you came home. That's just what you did. You never grew tired from a mission, and you never hesitated when you could save a life. It didn't matter that you were more of a fleer than a fighter, because when it all boiled down, you were just incredibly good at your job.Note: The author of this article was very active in Fan History Wiki, a project that was often very critical of The Organization for Transformative Works and its projects, one of which is Archive of Our Own.
I started out as a reader on FF.N, then moved on to AO3 as a reader and eventually a writer on AO3. I do post my work on FF.N as well, but I don't read there anymore. I had no problems with FF.N until I started at AO3 and got used to the system. Then I started seeing what was missing for me personally on FF.N. We have tried pinging FanFiction website using our server and the website returned the above results. If fanfiction.net is down for us too there is nothing you can do except waiting. Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or a website maintenance is in progress.. I personally think that the Archive is a much better website. Of course, they both have their pros and cons: Those are big ones for a mash of genres - though there are websites that are more specialized such as harrypotterfanfiction.com, mugglenet (which is not just fanfiction,), and an adult-fanfiction websites which is a mash of genres - but includes m..
I agree with Penny's answer, I mean, fan fiction has been around for so long, that it's impossible to answer this without know what fandom you're searching for at the very least. For example, LiveJournal was fairly popular for a few years during t.. I joined Archive of Our Own in 2014 after a recommendation from a friend, and I definitely prefer it over Fanfiction. It's not only due to the fact you have more control over the types of reviews and moderation, but more options like adding pictures, listing more than 3 or 4 characters, more genres, etc. I still update my stories on both sites, but I'm thinking seriously about deleting my account on Fanfiction after having been flamed in guest reviews since this unfortunate policy had started. Joining the Archive currently requires an invitation; however, we are not accepting new invitation requests at this time. Please check the "Invitations" tag on AO3 News for more information, or if you have already requested an invitation, you can check your position on the waiting list. I think FFN is an easier experience for readers since the reading part of the site's a lot easier to use, you can edit how the text looks, etc, without having to deal skins of Archive... but, FFN is a lot tricker to post on. I think having to create mandatory in-site documents is a pain in the ass, because every time I want to post a chapter of a story I need to do a ten-minute workaround of the site in order to get it up- and the stupid little copy-paste box on the site is so teeny-tiny that it's super annoying to use. The story content on FFN is also quite poor, and the other readers/commenters/authors seem fairly immature, as I think FFN attracts a younger audience thanWell, FFN has a mobile app now, and you can download any story you want. It's all cool, and I like that it has a large community as well. You can get decent exposure there.
For those not familiar with it, FanFiction.net came about in 1998, and acted as a one-stop archive for fan-created stories from pre-existing shows, games, literature, you name it. It is literally the largest place to find fanfiction on the internet and is home to over 2.2 million users as of 2010 (and is probably home to plenty more! Villains, Heroes, and a past you can't escape: three men, three stories each differing from the other.
The sites a little ugly, but I think that I biggest con to the site. I actually don't mind the tagging system (since Archive seemed to have updated so that you can filter things out, now-), and i find soem of the "meaningless" tags that authors put in to eb quite halrious. Its just another form of expression for the story, and if you don't care for it then you don't have to pursue the tags. You can just read the summary or skip the story. I don't mind the adult content, either... actually, I think it's nice to have a place to find it- if that what a person is specifically looking for. I find that the openness to adult content also causes more mature, older authors to come to the site, which allows me to have better discussions in the comments. Not to mention that the story quality is ultimately higher on Archive than it is on FFN, and you can far more easily post and find Orginal Work, which is something I'm interested in reading. Archive also has some reading options (like reading the whole work on a single page) that aren't available on FFN. I primarily use a laptop while using these two sites, so the mobile issue doesn't really affect me.So out of curiosity - can I ask what your profile name is on FF net and what genre of stories you write, read or favourite? I prefer reading JAG, Stargate SG1 and BATB stories.
Archive of Our Own (AO3) is a nonprofit open source repository for fanfiction (fic) and other fanworks contributed by users. The site was created in 2008 by the Organization for Transformative Works and went into open beta in 2009. As of May 2020, Archive of Our Own hosted 6 million works in over 36.700 fandoms. The site has received positive reception for its curation, organization and design. The other one is older and has its own independent archive where most of the traffic resides. I post those stories on AO3 for a true archival purposes: a backup on the internet with very few hits. I do get a little jealous of the reviewing culture at FFN, where it is just accepted to leave little notes for each other on each chapter
A mysterious Cyndaquil happens upon the Straw Hat Pirates and is taken on the adventure of his lifetime, full of joy and dangers alike.Lots of information here which is great. I used to use FF.net a while back and was very happy with it until I got a virus which has slowed down my computer for years. I have used AO3 more recently and I like it except for the unavailability issues mentioned. I have avoided FF.net snce the virus incident but I would like to return if that kind of problem is gone. I'm not surehow to safely find out however. Anyway I have issues with both sites so for now I have to go to alternative sites (like LiveJournal for instance). Thank you for the articleFanFiction.Net quickly rose in popularity, being one of the few archives at the time open to just about any kind of fandom, not just a single specific universe, anime, or TV series. Originally, the archive was open to anyone over the age of 18 who wished to register for an account and allowed any storing rating from general audiences ("G") to explicit adult ("NC-17"). Stories about celebrities, including musicians, actors, and athletes (i.e., Real Person Fiction) were allowed along with those stories written about television series, fictional books, comics, anime, and movies.
