    Boys in Chains, um arquivo de múltiplos fandoms para tanto ficção quanto arte, com foco em vinculos emocionais entre pessoas de status e posições hierárquicas diferentes, está de mudança para o Archive of Our Own – AO3 (Nosso Próprio Arquivo). Para refletir o fato de ser aberto a obras com femslash, het, e gen, seu nome vai mudar para Chains: The Powerfic Archive.

    Leia nesse post:

    Contexto

    Boys in Chains abriu em 2000 como um arquivo de fics m/m (homem/homem) slash com temática de servidão. Mais tarde expandiu seu conteúdo para se tornar um arquivo de obras retratando desequilibrio de poder, incluindo temáticas de servidão, prisão, trabalhadorxs do sexo e BDSM. O arquivo aceitava fanfic e ficção original nas categorias slash m/m e f/f (mulher/mulher), gen (geral) e het (hétero) assim como yaoi, yuri e ficção com temática LGBT. O arquivo também mantinha uma galeria de fanart com temas similares.

    No AO3, Chains: The Powerfic Archive será uma coleção separada, com sistema de busca próprio e identificação distinta para todas as obras que estavam hospedadas no arquivo original. Iremos começar a importar obras do Boys in Chains para a coleção no AO3 em dezembro de 2014.

    O que isso significa para para criadorxs que tenham obras no Boys in Chains?

    Essa é a hora em que pedimos a sua ajuda!

    1. Se já possui uma conta no AO3 e publicou sua obra do Boys in Chains com ela, por favor entre em contato com a equipe Open Doors (Portas Abertas) com seu(s) pseudônimo(s) no Boys in Chains e endereço(s) de e-mail, para que não importemos suas obras. (Você pode adicionar suas obras em grupo à nova coleção no AO3.)

    2. Se ainda não tem uma conta no AO3 mas gostaria de ter uma para publicar suas obras pessoalmente, por favor entre em contato com a equipe Portas Abertas com seu pseudônimo do Boys in Chains e o endereço de email em que gostaria de receber o convite para o AO3.

    3. Se você prefere que suas obras NÃO sejam importadas, por favor entre em contato com a equipe Portas Abertas com o seu pseudônimo no Boys in Chains e endereço(s) de e-mail associado(s) à conta para que não adicionemos suas obras (se não se importa de ter suas obras preservadas mas não quer que seu nome seja ligado a elas, por favor nos informe; podemos marcar sua obras como órfãs para que fãs possam continuar a aproveitá-la).
    Todas as obras importadas em nome de criadorxs serão atribuídas a estxs com nomes no sumário da obra e irão incluir uma nota sobre como reivindicar a obra no futuro. À medida que obras forem adicionadas, iremos enviar uma notificação para os endereços de email associados a elas.

    Todas as obras importadas serão marcadas como visíveis apenas por usuárixs que estejam logadxs em suas contas no AO3. Quando você tiver reivindicado uma obra sua, poderá modificá-la para torná-la publicamente visivel, caso prefira. Após 3 messs, todas as obras importadas que não tiverem sido revindicadas serão marcadas como publicamente visivel para todxs que visitarem o AO3.

    Boys in Chains, multifandomowe archiwum fan fiction i fan artu poświęcone więziom emocjonalnym pomiędzy osobami z różnych sfer i poziomów przensi się do Archive of Our Own – AO3 (Naszego Własnego Archiwum). Aby odzwierciedlić swoją otwartość na femslash, związki hetero i gen, nazwa archiwum zostanie zmieniona na Chains: The Powerfic Archive.

    W tym poście:

    Informacja dotycząca pochodzenia archiwum

    Boys in Chains zostało otwarte w 2000 roku, jako archiwum prac slashowych m/m przedstawiających nierównowagę sił, włączając w to slavefic, prisonfic, hookerfic oraz fici dotyczące BDSM. W archiwum mile widziana była fan fiction i twórczość autorska w kategoriach m/m slash, f/f slash, gen, i het jak również yaoi, yuri, oraz twórczość gejowska i lesbijska. Archiwum oprócz powyższej twórczości, posiada również galerie fan artu obrazującą podobne motywy.

    W AO3, Chains: The Powerfic Archive będzie odrębnym, możliwym do wyszukiwania zbiorem zachowującym tożsamość twórczości fanowskiej, jaka do tej pory się w nim znajdowała. Zaczniemy import prac z Boys in Chains do zbiorów AO3 w grudniu 2014 roku.

    Co to będzie oznaczać dla twórców, którzy mieli swoj eprace na Boys in Chains?

    To jest część, w której prosimy was o pomoc!

    1. Jeśli masz już konto w AO3 i opublikowałaś/eś swoje prace w Boys in Chains, prosimy o kontakt z Open Doors (Drzwiami Otwartymu) wraz z pseudonimem/ami oraz adresem/ami email używanymi w Boys in Chains, abyśmy nie importowali twoich prac. (Możesz dodać wiele prac na raz do nowegozbioru w AO3.)

    2. Jeśli nie masz jeszcze konta w AO3, ale chciałabyś/chciałbyś posiadać jakieś, by samemu załadować prace, prosimy o kontakt z Drzwiami Otwartymi wraz z pseudonimem/ami używanym/i w Boys in Chains, oraz wybranym adresem email, na który zostanie wysłane zaproszenie do AO3.

    3. Jeśli NIE chcesz, by twoje prace zostały importowanie, prosimy o kontakt z Drzwiami Otwartymi wraz z pseudonimem/ami oraz adresem/ami email używanymi w Boys in Chains, byśmy nie importowali twoich prac. (Jeśli nie masz nic przeciwko zachowaniu tych prac, ale bez przypisania do nich twojego imienia, daj nam o tym też znać—możemy “osierocić” twoje prace, zachowując je ku uciesze obecnych oraz przyszłych fanów).
    Wszystkim pracom importowanym w imieniu autora zostanie przypisane jej/jego imię, które zostanie zamieszczone w streszczeniu pracy. W streszczeniu znajdzie się również informacja o tym, w jaki sposób będzie można rościć sobie prawo do pracy w przyszłości. Wraz z importowaniem pracy zostanie wysłane powiadomienie na adres email do niej przypisany.

    Dostęp do wszystkich importowanych prac zostanie umożliwiony tylko zalogowanym użytkownikom AO3. W momencie kiedy potwierdzisz posiadanie danej pracy, będziesz mogła/mógł zmienić jej ustawienia na publicznie widoczne, jeśli tak zadecydujesz. Po trzech miesiącach, wszystkie nieprzypisane prace zostaną upublicznione dla odwiedzających AO3.

    Boys in Chains, un archivio multifandom di fan fiction e fan art concentrato su storie che riguardano legami emozionali tra persone di diverso ceto o status, si sta trasferendo su Archive of Our Own – AO3 (Archivio Tutto Per Noi). E per riflettere la propria apertura al femslash, het e gen, il suo nome cambierà in Chains: The Powerfic Archive.

    In questo post:

    Spiegazione del contesto

    Boys in Chains ha aperto nel 2000 come archivio per m/m slave!fic. Successivamente ha espanso i suoi contenuti per diventare un archivio per lavori che rappresentano rapporti con squilibri di potere, che includonoslave!fic (dove uno dei personaggi è, o finge di essere, in schiavitù) prison!fic (dove uno dei personaggi è un galeotto), hooker!fic (dove uno dei personaggi si prostituisce per denaro) e fic con temi BDSM (Bondage & Disciplina, Dominio & Sottomissione, Sadismo & Masochismo). Conteneva fan fiction e lavori originali nelle categorie di m/m slash, f/f slash, gen, e het insieme a yaoi, yuri, e fiction gay/lesbo. Oltre alle fanfiction, comprendeva anche una galleria di fan art raffiguranti temi simili.

    Su AO3, Chains: The Powerfic Archive sarà una collezione separata e ricercabile con la propria identità per tutti i fanwork che erano situati sull’archivio originale. Cominceremo ad importare lavori da Boys in Chains nella relativa collezione su AO3 a partire da Dicembre 2014.

    Cosa significa questo per i creatori che avevano lavori su Boys in Chains?

    Questa è la parte in cui chiediamo il tuo aiuto!

    1. Se hai già un account su AO3 e hai postato lì i tuoi lavori di Boys in Chains, per cortesia contatta Open Doors (Porte Aperte) con il tuo pseudonimo(/i) e indirizzo(/i) e-mail utilizzati su Boys in Chains, così da evitare di importare nuovamente i tuoi lavori. (Puoiaggiungere lavori multipli alla nuova collezione su AO3.)

    2. Se non hai già un account AO3, ma vorresti caricare i tuoi lavori da solo, per cortesia contatta Open Doors con il tuo pseudonimo(/i) utilizzato(/i) su Boys in Chains e l'indirizzo e-mail preferito su cui ricevere l’invito per AO3.

    3. Se NON vuoi che i tuoi lavori siano importati, per cortesia contatta Open Doors con il tuo pseudonimo(/i) e indirizzo(/i) e-mail di Boys in Chains così da evitarne l'importazione su AO3. (Se non ti dispiace che siano preservati, ma non vuoi che il tuo nome sia ancora collegato ad essi, per cortesia facci sapere anche questo – possiamo rendere orfani i tuoi lavori, affinché i fan futuri e presenti possano ancora goderne.)
    La paternità di tutti i lavori importati per conto di un creatore sarà attribuita riportando il suo nome nel riassunto del lavoro e includeranno una nota su come reclamare il lavoro in futuro. Mentre importiamo i lavori, invieremo notifiche via e-mail all’indirizzo associato con il lavoro.

    Tutti i lavori importati saranno impostati per essere visibili solo da utenti di AO3 che hanno effettuato l’accesso. Una volta che avrai reclamato i tuoi lavori, potrai renderli visibili pubblicamente se lo sceglierai. Dopo 3 mesi, tutti i lavori importati non reclamati saranno resi visibili a tutti i visitatori.
    Se non hai più accesso all’account email associato con i tuoi lavori su Boys in Chains, per cortesia contatta Open Doors e ti aiuteremo. (Se hai postato i lavori in altri luoghi, o hai un modo facile per provare che sono i tuoi, sarebbe fantastico saperlo; in caso contrario, lavoreremo con il moderatore dell’archivio Boys in Chains per confermare le tue affermazioni.)

    Se hai ancora domande...

    Se hai ulteriori domande, visita la pagina FAQ di Open Doors, contatta il comitato Porte Aperte, o lascia un commento su questo post e risponderemo il prima possibile.

    Boys in Chains, sebuah situs arsip fanfiksi dan fan art multifandom yang berfokus kepada cerita-cerita tentang ikatan emosional di antara orang-orang dengan pangkat atau status yang berbeda, sedang dialihkan lokasinya bersama Archive of Our Own – AO3 (Arsip Milik Kita). Untuk menunjukkan keterbukaan terhadap femslash, het, dan genre umum, nama tersebut akan berubah menjadi Chains: The Powerfic Archive.

    Dalam post berikut, Anda akan menemukan:

    Latar Belakang

    Boys in Chains dibuka pada tahun 2000 sebagai arsip untuk fanfiksi slash P/P tentang perbudakan. Arsip ini lalu berkembang menjadi arsip untuk karya-karya yang merepresentasikan kesenjangan kekuatan, termasuk fiksi tentang perbudakan, fiksi tentang penjara, fiksi tentang prostitusi dan fiksi dengan tema BDSM. Arsip tersebut menerima fanfiksi dan fiksi original dengan kategori slash P/P, slash W/W, umum, dan hetero serta tak terkecuali yaoi, yuri, dan fiksi gay/lesbian. Selain untuk fanfiksi, arsip ini juga menampung galeri fanart dengan tema serupa.

    Di AO3, Chains: The Powerfic Archive akan menjadi koleksi searchable yang terpisah dengan identitas sendiri untuk seluruh karya penggemar yang ditampung oleh arsip asli. Kami akan mulai memindahkan karya dari Boys in Chains ke AO3 pada bulan Desember 2014.

    Bagaimana pengaruhnya untuk para kreator yang memiliki karya di Boys in Chains?

    Ini adalah bagian di mana kami akan meminta bantuan Anda!

    1. Jika Anda sudah memiliki akun AO3 dan telah mengunggah karya Boys in Chains Anda di sana, mohon hubungi Open Doors (Pintu Terbuka) dengan pseudonim Boys in Chains dan alamat surel Anda, sehingga kami tidak akan memindahkan karya Anda. (Anda dapat menambahkan karya-karya secara massal ke dalam koleksi AO3 yang baru.)

    2. Jika Anda belum memiliki akun AO3 tetapi ingin memiliki akun untuk mengunggah karya Anda sendiri, mohon hubungi Open Doors dengan pseudonim Boys in Chains Anda, dan alamat surel yang Anda pilih untuk dikirimi undangan AO3.

    3. Jika Anda tidak ingin karya Anda diimpor, mohon hubungi Open Doors dengan pseudonim Boys in Chains dan alamat surel Anda, dan kami tidak akan menambahkan karya Anda pada arsip. (Jika Anda tidak keberatan karya Anda dilestarikan, tetapi tidak ingin nama Anda dicantumkan sebagai kreatornya lagi, tolong beritahu kami juga—kami bisa membuat karya tersebut tetap dinikmati penggemar sekarang dan di masa depan).
    Semua karya yang diimpor atas keinginan kreator akan dilengkapi dengan nama mereka dalam ringkasan karya tersebut, dan termasuk catatan tentang bagaimana cara mengklaim karya Anda di masa depan. Saat kami sedang memindahkan karya, kami akan mengirim surel kepada alamat yang bersangkutan dengan karya tersebut.

    Semua karya yang telah dipindahkan akan diatur agar bisa dilihat hanya oleh pengguna AO3 yang masuk log. Setelah Anda mengklaim karya Anda, Anda bisa mengatur agar karya tersebut dapat dilihat publik. Setelah tiga bulan, semua karya yang tidak diklaim akan dibuat tampil bagi semua pengunjung situs.

    Jika Anda tidak lagi memiliki akses terhadap akun surel yang Anda asosiasikan dengan karya Boys in Chains Anda, mohon hubungi Open Doors dan kami akan membantu Anda. (Akan lebih bagus jika Anda juga telah mengunggah karya Anda di tempat lain dan memiliki cara yang lebih mudah untuk membuktikan bahwa karya tersebut milik Anda. Jika tidak, Chains untuk mengkonfirmasikan klaim Anda.)

    Jika Anda masih mempunyai pertanyaan...

    Jika Anda ingin bertanya lebih jauh, silakan kunjungi halaman FAQ Open Doors, hubungi komite Open Doors, atau tinggalkan komentar di post ini dan kami akan merespon sesegera mungkin.

    Boys in Chains, egy több fandomot lefedő fan ficton és fanart archívum ami a különböző rangú vagy státuszú emberek érzelmi kötelékeire fókuszál, összeköltözik az Archive of Our Own – AO3-al (A Mi Archívumunk). Azért, hogy tükrözze nyitottságát a femslash és gen felé, a neve Chains: The Powerfic Archive-ra változik.

    Ebben a posztban:

    Háttér információ

    A Boys in Chains 2000-ben nyílt meg, mint m/m slash rabszolgafic archívum. Később kiterjesztette a tartalmát, és erőkülönbségeket megjelenítő munkák, úgymint slavefic (rabszolgafic), prisonfic (börtönfic), hookerfic (prostific) és BDSM témák archívuma is lett. Befogadott fanfiction-t és eredeti munkát m/m slash, f/f slash, gen, éshet ezenkívül yaoi, yuri kategóriákban, és meleg/leszbikus ficeket. Ficek mellett a galériában hasonló témájú fan art volt található.

    Az AO3-on belül a Chains: The Powerfic Archive különálló, kereshető kollekció lesz, saját identitással az összes munka számára aminek az eredeti archívum otthont adott. 2014. decemberében kezdjük el importálni a munkákat a Boys in Chains-ről az AO3 kollekciójába.

    Mit jelent ez az alkotók számára akiknek munkájuk van a Boys in Chains-en?

    Ez az a rész ahol a segítségeteket kérjük!

    1. Ha már nyitottál AO3 fiókot és közzétetted a Boys in Chains-en lévő munkáidat itt, kérjük lépj kapcsolatba az Open Doors-al (Nyitott Ajtók), küldd el a Boys in Chains felhasználó neve(i)d és email címe(i)d, és így nem fogjuk importálni a munkáidat. (Hogyan adhatsz egyszerre több munkát az új kollekcióhoz az AO3-on.)

    2. Ha még nincs AO3 fiókod, de szeretnéd te feltölteni a munkáid, kérjük küldd el a Nyitott Ajtóknak a Boys in Chains felhasználóneve(i)d, és az email címet ahova szeretnéd, hogy az AO3 meghívót küldjük.

    3. Ha NEM szeretnéd, hogy importáljuk a munkáid, kérjük küldd el a Nyitott Ajtóknak a Boys in Chains felhasználóneve(i)d, és az email címe(i)d, így nem fogjuk a kollekcióhoz adni őket. (Ha nem bánod, hogy megőrizzük őket, de nem szeretnéd a neved továbbra is hozzájuk fűzni, kérjük ezt is add a tudtunkra - elárvíthatjuk a munkáid így jelenlegi és jövőbeli rajongók ezek után is élvezhetik majd őket.)
    Minden egyes alkotó nevében importált munkát az alkotónak tulajdonítunk, a nevét szerepeltetve a munka összefoglalásában, és a munka tartalmazni fog egy megjegyzést arra vonatkozóan, hogy az hogyan igényelhető vissza a jövőben. Miközben importáljuk a munkákat, email értesítéseket küldünk ki a munkához csatolt címekre.

    Minden importált munka csak bejelentkezett AO3 felhasználók által lesz megtekinthető. Ha visszaigényelted a munkáidat, mindenki által megtekinthetővé teheted őket, ha ezt szeretnéd. Három hónap után minden nem megigényelt importált munka minden látogató számára látható lesz.

    Ha már nincs hozzáférésed a Boys in Chains-en tárolt munkáidhoz kapcsolt email fiókhoz, kérjük lépj kapcsolatba az Nyitott Ajtókkal és segítünk. (Ha közzétetted a munkáid máshol, vagy van egy könnyű módja annak, hogy megbizonyosodjunk arról, hogy azok valóban a tieid, az nagyszerű; ha nincs, együttműködünk a Chains archívum moderátorával, hogy igazoljuk az igényedet.)

    Ha még mindig vannak kérdéseid...

    Ha további kérdéseid vannak, látogasd meg a Nyitott Ajtók GyIK oldalt, lépj kapcsolatba az Nyitott Ajtók bizottsággal, vagy hagyj egy hozzászólást ez alatt a bejegyzés alatt, és válaszolunk amilyen gyorsan csak tudunk.

    - A Nyitott Ajtók csapat

    Oszd meg az emlékeidet a Boys in Chains-ről a Fanlore-on és segíts folytatni a történetét a jövőbeli generációk számára -- minden rajongótól szívesen fogadunk hozzájárulást! (Új vagy a wiki szerkesztésben? Semmi baj, csak látogasd meg ezt az oldalt.)

    Boys in Chains, een multi-fandom archief voor zowel fictie als art, met een focus op verhalen over emotionele banden tussen mensen met een verschil in rank of status,, verhuist naar het Archive of Our Own - AO3 (Ons Eigen Archief). En om de openheid van dit archief jegens femslash en generieke werken te weerspiegelen, zal de naam veranderen in Chains: The Powerfic Archive.

    In deze post:

    Achtergronduitleg

    Boys in Chains is in 2000 geopend als een m/m slash slavenficarchief. Later is de inhoud uitgebreid om een archief te worden voor werken die machtsverschillen uitbeelden, waaronder slavefic (slavenfic), prisonfic (gevangenisfic), hookerfic (prostitutiefic) en werken met BDSM-thema’s. Fanfictie en origineel werk was welkom in de categorieën m/m slash, f/f slash, generiek, en hetero evenals yaoi, yuri, en fictie over homo’s/lesbiennes. Naast fanfictie had het archief ook een fanartgalerij over gelijkende thema’s.

    Binnen AO3 zal Chains: The Powerfic Archive een aparte, doorzoekbare collectie worden, met een eigen identiteit voor alle fanwerken die in het oorspronkelijke archief ondergebracht waren. We zullen werken van Boys in Chains naar de collectie van AO3 beginnen te importeren in december 2014.

    Wat betekent dit voor makers die werk hadden op Boys in Chains?

    Dit is waar we om jouw hulp vragen!

    1. Als je al een account op AO3 hebt, en je je Boys in Chains-werken daar ook gepost hebt, neem dan alsjeblieft contact op met Open Doors (Open Deuren) met je Boys in Chains-pseudoniem(en) en e-mailadres(sen), zodat we jouw werken niet importeren. (Je kunt meerdere werken toevoegen aan de nieuwe collectie op AO3.)

    2. Als je nog geen AO3-account hebt, maar er wel graag één zou willen om je werken te uploaden, neem dan alsjeblieft contact op met Open Doors met je Boys in Chains-pseudoniem(en), en het e-mailadres waarop je het liefst de AO3-uitnodiging zou willen ontvangen.

    3. Als je NIET wil dat je werken worden geïmporteerd, neem dan alsjeblieft contact op met Open Doors met je Boys in Chains-pseudoniem(en) en e-mailadres(sen), zodat we ze niet toevoegen. (Als je het niet erg zou vinden dat ze bewaard blijven, maar liever niet hebt dat jouw naam eraan vast zit, laat dat ons dan ook weten - we kunnen je werken tot wees maken, zodat fans nu en in de toekomst er toch van kunnen genieten.)
    Alle werken die geïmporteerd worden namens een maker, zullen aan diegene toegeschreven worden door middel van hun naam in de samenvatting van het werk, en zullen een notitie bevatten over de manier waarop men zich het werk in de toekomst kan toeëigenen. Terwijl we bezig zijn met het importeren van werken, zullen er e-mails verzonden worden naar de adressen die aan de werken verbonden zijn.

    Alle geïmporteerde werken zullen alleen zichtbaar zijn voor ingelogde AO3-gebruikers. Wanneer je je werken claimt, kun je ze openbaar zichtbaar maken, mocht je dat willen. Na 3 maanden zullen alle ongeclaimde werken zichtbaar worden gemaakt voor alle bezoekers.

    Als je geen toegang meer hebt tot het e-mailaccount waaraan je Boys in Chains-werken verbonden zijn, neem dan alsjeblieft contact op met Open Doors, en dan zullen we je helpen. (Als je de werken elders hebt gepost en een makkelijke manier hebt om te verifiëren dat ze inderdaad van jou zijn, dan is dat super. Als dit niet het geval is, zullen we met de archiefmoderator van Chains samenwerken om je claims te bevestigen.)

    Als je nog vragen hebt...

    Als je verder nog met vragen zit, ga dan naar de Open Doors FAQ-pagina, neem contact op met het Open Doors-comité, of laat en reactie op dit bericht achter. We zullen zo snel mogelijk reageren.

    Boys in Chains, ein multifandom Fanfiction- und Fanart-Archiv mit Fokus auf Geschichten über die emotionalen Bindungen zwischen Personen mit unterschiedlichen Status, zieht in Kürze in das Archive of Our Own - AO3 (Ein Eigenes Archiv) ein. Und um seine Offenheit gegenüber Femslash, Het und Gen zu reflektieren, wird es sich außerdem in Chains: The Powerfic Archive umbenennen.

    In diesem Post zu finden:

    Hintergrundgeschichte

    Boys in Chains wurde im Jahr 2000 als ein M/M-Slash-Sklavenfic-Archiv gegründet. Später wurde es erweitert, in ein Archiv für Fanwerke mit besonderem Fokus auf Machtungleichheit. Es beinhaltete unter anderem Sklavenfic, Gefängnisfic, Prostitutionsfic und Fanfiction mitBDSM Themen. Es begrüßte Fan- und Originalwerke in den Kategorien M/M-Slash, F/F-Slash, Gen und Het sowie Yaoi, , Yuri und Schwule/Lesben-Fiktion. Neben Fiktion hatte es außerdem eine Fanart-Galerie, die ähnliche Themen darstellte.

    Chains: The Powerfic Archive wird eine separate, durchsuchbare Sammlung im AO3 sein, die alle Fanwerke beinhaltet, welche im originalen Archiv gepostet wurden. Wir werden mit dem Import der Fanwerke im December 2014 beginnen.

    Was bedeutet dies für Fans, die Werke auf Boys in Chains veröffentlicht haben?

    Hierbei bitten wir Euch um eure Hilfe!

    1. Wenn du bereits ein AO3-Nutzerkonto besitzt und deine Werke von Boys in Chains im AO3 gepostet hast, kontaktiere bitte Open Doors (Offene Türen) mit deinem/n “Boys in Chains”-Pseudonym/en und -E-Mail-Adresse/n, damit wir deine Werke nicht importieren. (Du kannst einfach mehrere Werke auf einmal zur neuen Sammlung im AO3 hinzufügen.)

    2. Falls du noch kein AO3-Nutzerkonto besitzt, aber trotzdem eines oder mehrerer deiner Werke selber im AO3 hochladen möchtest, kontaktiere bitte Offene Türen mit deinem/n “Boys in Chains”-Pseudonym/en und deiner bevorzugten E-Mail-Adresse, an die du deine AO3-Einladung geschickt bekommen möchtest.

    3. Falls du deine Werke NICHT importiert haben möchtest, kontaktiere bitte Offene Türen mit deinem/n “Boys in Chains” -Pseudonym(en) und -E-Mail-Adresse(n). (Falls du nichts dagegen hast, dass die Werke weiter erhalten bleiben, allerdings nicht mehr mit ihnen assoziiert sein willst, kannst du uns das ebenfalls wissen lassen: Wir können Werke auswildern, d.h. ohne Autoren veröffentlichen, so dass jetzige und zukünftige Fans diese Werke weiterhin genießen können.)

    Alle Werke, die von uns auf Wunsch ihrer Schöpfer importiert werden, werden in der Inhaltsangabe den/die AutorIn namentlich nennen und einen Hinweis beinhalten, wie man Anspruch auf den Besitz seiner Werke geltend machen kann. Während des Imports werden wir E-Mail-Benachrichtigungen an die mit den Werken assoziierten E-Mail-Adressen verschicken.

    Alle importierten Werke werden nur für eingeloggte AO3-Nutzer sichtbar sein. Als SchöpferIn des Werkes kannst du die Einstellungen ändern, so dass sie auch für andere sichtbar sind. Nach einer dreimonatigen Warteperiode werden alle ausgewilderten Werke für die Öffentlichkeit zugänglich gemacht.

    Falls du zu der E-Mail-Adresse, mit der dein altes “Boys in Chains”-Nutzerkonto assoziiert ist, keinen Zugang mehr hast, kontaktiere bitte Offene Türen und wir werden dir helfen. (Falls du deine Werke auf anderen Plattformen veröffentlicht hast oder sie auf eine andere Art als dein Eigentum ausweisen kannst, wäre das super. Ansonsten werden wir mit den Chains-Archiv-Moderatoren zusammenarbeiten, um deine Identität zu bestätigen.)

    Falls du noch Fragen hast...

    Falls du noch weitere Fragen hast, kannst du die Offene-Türen-FAQ-Webseite besuchen, Offene Türen direkt kontaktieren, oder hier einen Kommentar hinterlassen und wir werden versuchen, so schnell wie möglich zu antworten.

    Boys in Chains, a multi-fandom archive for both fiction and art, with a focus on stories about emotional bonds between people of different ranks or status, is moving in with the Archive of Our Own (AO3). And to reflect its openness to femslash, het, and gen, its name will be changing to Chains: The Powerfic Archive.

    In this post:

    Background explanation

    Boys in Chains opened in 2000 as a m/m slash slavefic archive. It later expanded its content to become an archive for works representing power imbalances, including slavefic, prisonfic, hookerfic and fic with BDSM themes. It welcomed fan fiction and original fiction in the categories of m/m slash, f/f slash, gen, and het as well as yaoi, yuri, and gay/lesbian fiction. As well as fiction, it also had a gallery of fan art depicting similar themes.

    On the AO3, Chains: The Powerfic Archive will be a separate, searchable collection with its own identity for all of the fanworks that were housed on the original archive. We will begin importing works from Boys in Chains to the AO3 collection in December 2014.

    What does this mean for creators who had work on Boys in Chains?

    This is the part where we ask for your help!

    1. If you already have an AO3 account and have posted your Boys in Chains works there, please contact Open Doors with your Boys in Chains pseud(s) and e-mail address(es), so that we won’t import your works. (You can mass add works to the new collection on the AO3.)

    2. If you don’t already have an AO3 account but would like one to upload your works yourself, please contact Open Doors with your Boys in Chains pseud(s), and the preferred e-mail address to send the AO3 invite to.

    3. If you would NOT like your works imported, please contact Open Doors with your Boys in Chains pseud(s) and e-mail address(es) so that we will not add them. (If you would not mind them being preserved but do not want your name attached to them any longer, please let us know that too—we can orphan your works so that present and future fans can still enjoy them.)

    All works imported on a creator’s behalf will be attributed with their name in the summary of the work, and will include a note about how to claim the work in the future. 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 3 months, all unclaimed imported works will be made visible to all visitors.

    If you no longer have access to the email account associated with your Boys in Chains works, 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 great; if not, we will work with the Chains archive mod 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.

    Share your memories of Boys in Chains on Fanlore and keep its story going for future generations--contributions are welcome from all fans! (New to wiki editing? No worries, just visit this page.)

  • Elections 2014 Q&A and Chats

    OTW 2014 Elections Banner

    Now that everyone has had some time to acquaint themselves with our Board candidates through their bios and manifestos, we have more in-depth knowledge for you. This post has the candidates' answers to your questions and the link we will be using for the public chats.

    Chats

    There will be three public chats, each attended by two candidates and lasting 90 minutes. They will take place in our public chatroom.

    They are scheduled for:

    During these chats, OTW members and volunteers will have the opportunity to ask the candidates questions not already covered in their manifestos, bios, and Q&A, as well as to ask individual questions of specific candidates. If anyone isn't able to ask all their questions by the end of a given chat, you'll have an hour to submit your questions via the Elections form.

    We hope that you can join us for one or all of these chats!

    Q&A

    When we posted the Board candidates' bios and manifestos, we asked the public to submit additional questions for them. Now we have their answers for you!

    The questions are listed below with links to each candidate's answers. We have done our best to avoid repeat questions, so keep in mind that your question may have been combined with another.

    Part 1

    1) Being an OTW Board member is a time-consuming job. What do you think should be an average day in the life on an OTW Board member? How much time do you think you can dedicate to OTW Board work each day? Describe a handful of standard activities you believe you should do on a daily basis.

    2) What does the org's expectation of Board members' respect for confidentiality mean to you? Where would you draw the line when talking about internal org matters with friends and acquaintances via IM, email, locked DW/Twitter/etc, anon memes, or in person?

    3) Since 2011, there have been no contested elections for OTW Board. The fact that an OTW Board position has at this point essentially become a "you want it, you got it" position undermines OTW's legitimacy externally, and more importantly, Board's legitimacy internally.
    a) In light of this statistic, and the known fact of high director turnover, do you feel that the recent decision to expand OTW Board to 9 members is a good decision? If so, why?
    b) How do you address concerns about the fact that Board is currently the ruling body of the OTW and is supposed to represent the Board as an entirety, considering the lack of a democratic voting process? Do you think this undermines your position?

    Part 2

    4) What do you believe the Board's role should be in the area of fundraising in particular? What kinds of concrete acts should or shouldn't Board members do with regards to fundraising planning and execution?

    5) What kind of challenges, in your opinion, does the OTW face in the financial area? What do you think are our most pressing needs and flaws in that realm?

    6) Would you be able to lay out your vision for OTW’s financial future? How do you intend to balance the committees’ different needs?

    7) We're currently projected to be operating at a financial loss this year. Do you have any concrete plans for how you'll address issues of financial sustainability going forward?

    8) AO3's continued survival currently depends on a small handful of volunteers doing massive amounts of unpaid work. If those people became unavailable, what would your plan be to keep the archive from going under? Do you have a sense of how much it would cost to hire external contractors to do that work?

    Part 3

    9) All candidates' manifestos mention the rapid growth of the OTW, and therefore the need to grow a better internal infrastructure. What kind of infrastructure are you aiming for? In addition to that, what do you think should be the future role of the OTW Board? Advisory? Executive? Something else?

    10) If it were up to you alone, what steps and structural changes would you suggest to transition the Board out of doing day-to-day work?

    11) If you could make one concrete change in the OTW tomorrow, what would you do?

    Part 4

    12) There has been a lot of discussion and confusion both within and outside the OTW related to the concept of 'transparency' and what that means in relation to the work of the Board and the work of the organization as a whole. How would you define transparency in these contexts and what steps would you take both to ensure everyone is clear on what transparency means and to hold the Board and the organization accountable to that definition?

    13) The OTW has had issues with regards to clashing perceptions of authority and hierarchy between the Board and committees. Staffers and volunteers vocally resist both steps that are perceived as attempts to verticalize the org's structure and any Board decisions that are understood as top-down orders. What is your perspective on this issue?

    14) How do you see your role on the Board in relation to OTW staffers and volunteers and OTW members? How do you plan to reconcile different staffers' visions for the org? How do you think a Board member should act when staffers disagree with decisions that are under Board purview?

    15) What do you think are the unique challenges in interacting with a staff comprised entirely of volunteers as opposed to paid staff? How do you plan to navigate this?

    Part 5

    16) How would you respond if you saw a fellow director speaking harshly to a volunteer in a public chat?

    17) It's been shared by past Directors that Board work is both incredibly time-consuming and stressful and this can sometimes bring out "the worst" in people and can lead to negative interactions within the organization that have a lasting impact. From your outside observations so far, what difficulties have you noticed? Do you have any ideas for how to combat this issue that you will try to implement either for yourself or others during your Board service and how might you encourage self-care for yourself, your fellow Directors, and OTW personnel at-large?

    18) How do you plan to avoid burnout as a director?

    Banner by Lisa inspired by Diane's of a 3 line checkbox with the choices 'OTW' and'Elections News' and including the year

    Last Thursday, we announced the Board candidates for 2014. Over the next few weeks, we'll be offering 3 ways to get to know them.

    Manifestos and Bios

    We asked each candidate to provide us with a bio that sums up their professional and fannish experience, as well as to write a manifesto about their goals for their term on the Board by answering the following questions:

    1. Why did you decide to run for election to the Board?
    2. What skills and/or experience would you bring to the Board?
    3. What goals would you like to achieve during your term?
    4. What is your experience of the OTW’s projects and how would you collaborate with the relevant committees to support and strengthen them? Please include AO3, TWC, Fanlore, our Legal Advocacy work and Open Doors, though feel free to emphasize particular areas you’re interested in.
    5. Choose two topics/issues that you think should be high priority for the OTW, both internally and externally. What do these topics mean to you and why do you value them? How will you make them a part of your service?
    6. What do you think the key responsibilities of a/the Board are? Are you familiar with the legal requirements for a US-based nonprofit board of directors?
    7. How would you balance your Board work with other roles in the OTW, or how do you plan to hand over your current roles to focus on Board work?

    You can read both the candidates' answers to these questions and their bios by clicking the links below.

    Question & Answer (Q&A)

    Candidates will also answer questions from the public. Anyone may submit questions via the Elections form. Please submit all questions by 23:59 UTC on October 19th. (What time is that where I live?) All three candidates will answer each question submitted, subject to the following restrictions:

    • Questions must not be repeats of questions from the manifestos. This is to allow candidates to spend their time answering new questions.
    • Similar questions will be grouped together so candidates don't have to repeat themselves. Elections staff will decide which questions are similar enough to group.
    • If you have a follow-up to a manifesto question, please specifically mention that it is a follow-up so it isn't treated as a repeat.

    Answers will be posted on October 28th.

    Chats

    There will be three public chats, each attended by two candidates and lasting 90 minutes. They are scheduled for:

    During these chats, OTW members and volunteers will have the opportunity to ask the candidates questions not already covered in their manifestos, bios, and Q&A, as well as to ask individual questions of specific candidates. If anyone isn't able to ask all their questions by the end of a given chat, you'll have an hour to submit your questions via the Elections form.

    We will announce the link to the chatroom when we post the Q&A responses. We hope that you can join us for one or all of these chats!
