Do you use screencaps or video clips in your fanfiction? If so, the OTW needs your help!
In these releases, we implemented several anti-spam measures, fixed some problems with our invitation queue, and added clarifying text to the site when the invitation queue is temporarily suspended.
For the past several weeks, the Archive of Our Own has been dealing with an unusually high volume of spam works created to advertise live streams of sporting events. We've taken a number of steps to deal with these spam works, and in the next few days, we'll take one more: automatically hiding works that our spam detection service believes are spam.
