    Don't forget that International Fanworks Day (IFD) takes place next week on February 15th! We hope everyone is preparing some short-form fanworks for the OTW's Drabble Challenge, #IFDrabble.

    But we'd also like to celebrate fanworks already known and loved by you. For that, we've got Feedback Fest! Everyone who creates and shares fanworks loves hearing from the people who enjoyed it. Therefore, in our IFD celebration post on February 15th, we'll be asking fans to link to fanworks they've left feedback on. This way, people can share what they love about fanworks while encouraging others to leave feedback, too.

    And remember that tomorrow is the live chat "Why Fanworks Should Be Celebrated", with authors Cecilia Tan, Tara Sue Me, and Racheline Maltese. All of these authors started out writing fanfiction and have gone on to be published professionally—and they still participate in fanworks. Along with moderator Francesca Coppa, they will be discussing the value and importance of all kinds of fanworks.

    We would like to hear about how you will be celebrating! Tell us about plans to celebrate fanworks that you know of or that you will be hosting so that we can link to them during IFD.

  • The Henneth Annûn Story Archive is Coming to the AO3

    By Kiri Van Santen on Monday, 26 January 2015 - 5:44pm

    “official

    The Henneth Annûn Story Archive (HASA), an archive dedicated to well-written, imaginative, and engaging J.R.R. Tolkien fan fiction, is being imported to the Archive of Our Own (AO3).

    In this post:

    Background explanation

    The server housing the HASA site has been attacked several times. While no personal information of members were compromised, nor the databases, the vulnerability of the single server meant that the archive could be lost without warning if an attack was successful. Faced with security demands that were increasingly difficult to support, the HASA Transition Team began looking for alternative ways to keep the site (and its nearly 6,600 publicly-accessible works) available.

    To preserve HASA's stories, Julie Watkins and the HASA Transition Team will be working with Open Doors to import the archive into a separate, searchable AO3 collection with its own identity. We will begin importing works from HASA to the AO3 collection in February 2015. Additional volunteers are more than welcome! If you're interested, please contact Julie Watkins or post to the volunteer forum at HASA.

    What does this mean for creators who have work on HASA?

    This is the part where we ask for your help!

    1. If you already have an AO3 account and have posted your HASA works there, please contact Open Doors with your HASA pseud(s) and e-mail address(es), so that we won’t import your works. (Please include "HASA" in the subject heading.) For instructions on adding your works to the new collection on the AO3, HASA, please see the Open Doors website.

    2. If you don’t already have an AO3 account but would like one to import your works yourself, please contact Open Doors with your HASA pseud(s), and the preferred e-mail address to send the AO3 invite to. (Please include "HASA" in the subject heading.) For instructions on adding your works to the AO3 and to the HASA collection, please see the Open Doors website.

    3. If you don’t already have an AO3 account but would like one, as well as assistance importing your works, please contact Open Doors with your HASA pseud(s), and the preferred e-mail address to send the AO3 invite to. (Please include "HASA" in the subject heading.)

    Once your account is set up, let us know your AO3 name, and we can transfer your works to you.

    4. If you would NOT like your works moved, please contact Open Doors with your HASA pseud(s) and e-mail address(es) so that we will not add them. (Please include "HASA" in the subject heading.)

    If you would not mind your works being preserved but do not want your name attached to them any longer, please let us know that too--we can orphan your works instead of leaving them behind to be deleted.

    All works archived on a creator’s behalf will be attributed with the creator’s name in the byline of the work. As we import works, we will e-mail notifications to the address associated with the work.

    All imported works will be set to be viewable only by logged-in AO3 users. Once you claim your works, you can make them publicly-viewable if you choose. After 90 days, all unclaimed imported works will be made visible to all visitors.

    If you no longer have access to the email account associated with your HASA account, please contact Open Doors and we'll help you out. (If you've posted the works elsewhere, or have an easy way to verify that they're yours, that's fantastic; if not, we will work with the HASA team to confirm your claims.)

    If you still have questions...

    If you have further questions, visit the Open Doors FAQ page, contact the Open Doors committee, or leave a comment on this post and we'll respond as soon as we can.

    We'd also love it if fans could help us preserve the story of Henneth Annûn on Fanlore. If you're new to wiki editing, no worries! Check out the new visitor portal, or ask the Fanlore Gardeners for tips.

    We're excited to be able to help preserve HASA!

    Sohbet OTW’nin Public Discussion sohbet odası nda gerçekleştirilecek.

    Pek çok farklı zaman dilimindeki hayranlara uyacak bir zaman seçmeye çalıştık ancak zamanlama, misafirlerin uygunluğuna bağlıydı. Canlı sohbete katılamayan herkes için 24 saat içinde etkinliğin transkriptini yayınlayacağız.

    Sizin sorularınızı da öğrenmek istiyoruz! Misafirlerimiz için istediğiniz kadar soru gönderebilirsiniz ancak kısıtlı zamanımız olduğu için herhangi bir sorunun dahil edilip edilmeyeceğini garanti edemeyiz. Bütün yazarlara uygun ve “hayran eserlerini kutlama” temasını iyi bir şekilde temsil eden sorulara bakacağız.

    Soruları 1 Şubat 23:59 UTC zamanına dek alacağız. Sorularınızı buraya yazabilir ya da İletişim formu muzu kullanarak bize ulaştırabilirsiniz (sohbet için olduklarını belirtmeniz yeterli).

    Ayrıca, sizin ya da fandom topluluğunuzun nasıl kutlama yapacağını söylemeyi unutmayın ki biz de duyurabilelim!

    Как часть празднования Интернационального дня фан-работ, 15 февраля мы рады сообщить, что OTW (Организация Трансформационных Работ) организует живой чат с 4 авторами, которые писали и фанфики, и печатные работы.

    Чат состоится в OTW's Public Discussion chatroom (OTW чате для публичных дискусий).

    Не смотря на то, что мы старались выбрать более удобное время для фанатов из разных временных зон, расписание все-таки больше зависит от занятости приглашенных гостей. Для тех, кто не сможет присутствовать во время живого чата, в течение 24 часов будет опубликован его транскрипт.

    Мы будем рады вашему участию! Вы можете оставить столько вопросов нашим гостям, сколько пожелаете, но, так как время у нас ограничено, мы не можем гарантировать, что все вопросы будут включены. Мы подберем те вопросы, которые можно задать всем авторам, а также те, которые лучше всего представляют тему "празднование фан-работ".

    Мы будем принимать ваши вопросы до 23:59 UTC 1 февраля. Вы можете оставить свои вопросы здесь или отослать их через нашу Анкету (просто уточните, что этот вопрос предназначен для чата).

    Также не забудьте рассказать нам, как вы и ваш фандом собираетесь праздновать, чтобы мы смогли поделиться этим со всеми!

    Kami juga menerima saran Anda dengan senang hati! Anda dapat mengumpulkan sebanyak mungkin pertanyaan pada pembicara, tetapi waktu kami terbatas sehingga kami tidak dapat menjamin setiap pertanyaan dapat ditanyakan. Kami akan mencari pertanyaan yang jawabannya dapat diterapkan pada semua pengarang dan menjadi representasi yang baik dari topik "perayaan karya penggemar" ini.

    Kami akan mengumpulkan pertanyaan hingga tanggal 1 Februari pukul 23:59 UTC. Anda dapat mengirimkan pertanyaan di sini atau menyerahkannya melalui Formulir Komunikasi (mohon beritahukan kalau itu untuk obrolan).

    Mit Freude können wir mitteilen, dass zur Feier des Internationalen Tages der Fanwerke am 15. Februar die OTW (Organisation für Transformative Werke) einen Livechat abhalten wird. Gäste sind vier Autoren, die sowohl Fanfiction geschrieben als auch Bücher veröffentlicht haben.

    8. Februar 2015: Livechat mit Fanfiction- und publizierten Autoren mit dem Titel “Why Fanworks Should Be Celebrated” (Warum Fanwerke gefeiert werden sollten) von 17:00 Uhr UTC bis 19:00 Uhr UTC (Wann ist das in meiner Zeitzone?)

    Der Chat wird im öffentlichem Chat-Raum der OTW gehalten.

    Obwohl wir versucht haben, den Chat so zu legen, dass hoffentlich möglichst viele Fans in verschiedenen Zeitzonen teilnehmen können, hängt der Termin letzlich von der Verfügbarkeit der Gäste ab. Für alle, die es leider nicht schaffen, werden wir aller Voraussicht nach ein Protokoll des Chats, 24 Stunden nach dessen Beendigung, veröffentlichen.

    Wir freuen uns auf Eure Beteiligung! Du kannst im Voraus so viele Fragen wie Du willst an unsere Gäste stellen, wobei wir aufgrund der beschränkten Zeit nicht garantieren können, dass jede einzelne beantwortet wird. Insbesondere Fragen, die von allen Autoren gleichermaßen beantwortet werden können und gut zum Thema "Feiern von Fanwerken" passen sind willkommen.

    Wir werden bis zum 1. Februar, 23:59 Uhr UTC Fragen sammeln. Sie können entweder als Kommentar hier eingereicht werden, oder über das Kontaktformular des Kommunikationskomitees (erwähne bitte, dass die Fragen für den Chat bestimmt sind).

    Vergesst nicht, uns mitzuteilen, was Ihr oder Eure Fangemeinschaft an Feierlichkeiten geplant hat, damit wir dem einen kleinen Aufmerksamkeitsschub geben können!

  • Le 8 Février : Conversation des auteurs pour la journée internationale des oeuvres aficionados

    Message type:

    Voici la bannière représentant différentes oeuvres aficionados comprenant le cosplay, l’écrit et l’art visuel.

    Le 15 Février se déroulera la journée internationale pour les oeuvres aficionados. En l’honneur de cette célébration, l’OTW (Organisation pour les Oeuvres Transformatives) est ravie de vous annoncer qu’elle hébergera une chat live avec quatre auteures ayant écrit des fanfictions ainsi que publié plusieurs travaux.

    8 Février 2015 : Conversation live avec des auteurs à la fois d’oeuvres professionnelles et de fanfictions avec le thème “Why Fanworks Should Be Celebrated” (Pourquoi les oeuvres aficionados doivent-elles être célébrées?) de 17h00 à 19h00 UTC. (À quelle heure cela correspond-il chez moi?)

    La conversation sera hébergée dans la salle de discussion publique de l’OTW.

    Bien que nous ayons essayé de choisir une heure convenant à la majorité des fans de différents fuseaux horaires, le créneau dépend principalement de la disponibilité des auteurs. Pour ceux et celles qui ne peuvent pas y assister, nous essayerons de poster une transcription de l’évènement dans les 24 heures.

    Nous aimerions également avoir votre opinion! Vous pouvez poser autant de questions à nos invités qu’il vous plaira. Gardez à l’esprit que nous aurons un timing limité et qu’il est possible que certaines questions ne soient pas inclues. Nous choisirons en priorité les questions pouvant s’appliquer à tous nos invités, et qui sont une bonne représentation du sujet “célébrer les oeuvres aficionados”.

    Nous collecterons vos questions jusqu’au 1er Février 23h59 UTC. Vous pouvez poster vos questions ici, ou les soumettre grâce au formulaire Communication (veuillez metionner qu’il s’agit d’une question pour la discussion).

    N’oubliez pas de nous faire part de comment vous ou la communauté de votre fandom pensez célébrer cela, afin que nous puissions vous donner un coup de pub!
