Underground, a Labyrinth fanfiction archive, is being imported to the Archive of Our Own (AO3).
If you're one of the many users moving to AO3 from other fandom spaces where English isn't widely used, we'd like to welcome you—we're so excited to have you! AO3 has some features that may not work the way you're used to, so we'd like to take a moment to go through some of the basics.
Thanks to a long-planned database upgrade, the AO3 now lets you use all the latest emoji, as well as extended character sets for several languages (such as some of the rarer characters used for Chinese and Japanese) in your works, comments, or profile. 🎉🍾🎈🎊🎇. In fact, all text fields now support the UTF8MB4 character set, except for a few we've limited to Latin characters and some punctuation marks, like pseuds or collection names.
