Anonymous said: Hi, I saw your donation drive on AO3, and I'm wondering what the money is for, exactly? $70,000 seems like a /lot/ of money. Is there somewhere I can see a list of intended purposes? Thank you!

70,000 USD does seem like a lot, which is why many of our users may be surprised to find out that in 2015, the OTW will need 75,000 USD just to replace old servers and expand capacity! The OTW’s annual budget for 2014 is 221,863.44 USD, and 70% of that goes directly to servers, collation, and staff development for AO3. The remaining 30% of our 2014 budget funds Fanlore, Legal Advocacy, Open Doors, and Transformative Works and Cultures; covers administrative costs; allows for outreach and membership development (such as our thank you gifts and shipping); and provides opportunities for professional development and training for personnel. All of these things help the OTW protect and celebrate fans and fan culture.

I find it amazing that people think that’s a lot of money to ask. It’s incredibly expensive to fund such heavily used and non ad supported websites, and that before anyone even gets paid for their work. I am definitely donating what I can to this drive, and I hope if you have a few dollars spare and benefit from Archive of Our Own, or any of their projects you will consider donating as well.

If you would like to donate you can do so here :)

So, guys. If you can spare anything — even a dollar or two — AO3 is an incredible resource, providing readers with top-quality stories and giving writers a jumpstart on turning hobbies into careers.

I speak from experience. My publisher found me on AO3. Without AO3, I might never have turned my dream of being a published writer into reality!

Thank you, lovely! CH41 is around 80% done now. Just a bit more to go, then cleanup and insertion of translations and then post! ^__^

Adoring and admiring someone regardless of what they do and say, just puts you in the same league as beliebers.
