Comment on Important changes to adding work, chapter, and series co-creators

  1. "I think I've found the basis for your issue.
    An archive is a place in which public records or historical materials (such as documents) are preserved.
    As opposed to social media which is defined as forms of electronic communication (such as websites for social networking and microblogging) through which users create online communities to share information, ideas, personal messages, and other content (such as videos)

    Hint: the clue is in the site name."

    You are dead wrong mr. or mrs. trying to be helpful (which you're really not, helpful, at the moment).

    All fanfic sites have a PRIVATE mesage system today in 2019, including FFN. There is no excuse for the AO3 staff not modernizing/getting with the times in that regard and not having a PM system on this fanfic site itself that allows for communication between fanfic writers and readers. Like I said, not everyone want to have a Facebook or Twitter account, especially now that those two social media have been found guilty of the crime of stealing and selling your datas without your consent which is illegal and criminal and they do not respect people's privacy.

    Those two people are telling it like it is (here are two must watch videos that you should definitely read and share):

    You need to wake up, those "social media" are not safe, they are stealing and leaking and selling your datas without your consent, and your government is spying on you. Stop being a dumb sheep and wake up.

    1. You entirely missed my point. Comparing AO3 to "other fanfic sites" and what those sites have done is a fruitless endeavour. AO3 is not "a fanfic site" it is a fanworks archive. Archive. You are looking for social media in the wrong place.

    2. Also, the fact that Facebook or Twitter or other sites "are not safe" is true, but also isn't AO3's problem to fix. You'll have to find that solution elsewhere, or create it yourself. Stop expecting a site that has a very clear mandate and purpose to become something else just because you want it to.
