There have been some big milestones at the AO3 recently. The Archive recently reached the 2 millon fanworks mark. It took over four years to reach 1 million fanworks, and less than two years to add the second million. Also recently, Tag Wrangling canonized AO3's 20'000th fandom. Thanks to everyone who has been involved in the Archive's success.
International Fanworks Day is nearly here. To celebrate we are kicking off one of our planned events today, which is Feedback Fest!
Open Doors is pleased to announce the completion of five archive import projects! Here on the AO3, not only will the original contents be preserved, but all of the archives can continue to grow.
