We're pleased to announce that after seven months, the Archive of Our Own is once again available on the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine!
Are you interested in volunteering for the Organization for Transformative Works as Abuse Committee Staff or Elections Committee Staff?
You may have noticed the Archive has been slow or giving 502 errors when posting or editing works, particularly on weekends and during other popular posting times. Our development and Systems teams have been working to address this issue, but our March 17 attempt failed, leading to several hours of downtime and site-wide slowness.
