This deploy includes code by Elz which was tested by Lady Oscar.

Following a crackdown by Chinese authorities on creators and hosting services of explicit fanworks, we are welcoming an increasing number of fans from China. In response to reports from our volunteer Tag Wranglers, we quickly fixed an issue affecting Chinese and Japanese tags.

We plan to further enhance our existing support for logographic scripts, and are currently looking into ways to provide word counts for works in Chinese and Japanese, among others. We will continue to work on making the Archive a safe haven for fan creators from all over the world!


  • Fixed an issue which prevented tags from being properly separated if they were delimited by commas in Chinese or Japanese scripts, i.e. U+FF0C ( ,) or U+3001 ( 、).
