Is the fact that there are no paragraphs an error in formatting or something? It is very distracting and makes it hard to read the story and keep tract of your place.

Thanks Nath. The death of HASA has co-incided with a rather unpleasant time in my life, is all. Sorry for having to ask.

*whispers* There's a short, and of course very incomplete, list here...

Can anyone suggest me a new archive to post at, out of interest?

Update on the Open Doors option.

I have heard back from two very helpful moderators of that system. It's a bit of a mixed bag.

On the one hand, they can give HASA as a community a collection where all of the stories can be gathered in one location. This would keep HASA as an archive together. The downside, and it's a big one, is that they do not have any way to programmatically import HASA into their system. Each story here would have to be copied manually. They did acknowledge that HASA is a significantly larger archive than had imported before.

The admins at HASA, well, we're about five people now, and that is simply beyond our reach to do it ourselves. I know that there are a lot of people who would be happy to move their own stuff and help with moving others' stories.

The big question is this - Should it even be attempted? Should members try to move HASA as a collection to another location (which will not function the way the site presently does) to keep stories together? If there was an automated way to do this, I'd say yes, it should be tried. Relying on manual copies of @ 6,500 stories and over 30,000 individual chapters might be too much. That would take a rate of @ 75 stories per day, every day, through the end of the year if it began the first full week of October.

I know people have been copying works already to other archives (Which is great - keep it up!) and I've had inquiries about adding some admins to salvage old stories whose authors are no longer engaged in the fandom.

My own opinion is that stories should be in as many archives as the author has the time and the energy to post to. More exposure is better to gain readers, and more locations is better to reduce hosting risk.

Thoughts?
