Although this isn’t necessary on AO3, this is not uncommon in Chinese fandom sites that you have to prove your credentials to get in (in fact it wasn’t uncommon in English-language fandom sites 15-20 years ago).  We respond to all of these tickets, even the ones that just say hi.  We check whether the user has managed to receive their invite or get their account sent up, and if they haven’t, we help them do so.  This means taking every single ticket through our Chinese translation team twice, once so we make sure we understand the initial ticket, and then again to translate our reply.  This is a challenging process, although we’ve found ways to streamline it and can normally get a reply out pretty quickly (like within a few days).  We do it because this is part of why AO3 exists in the first place - to provide a safe haven where users can post their works without worrying about censorship or sudden crackdowns on certain kinds of content.  We do it because this is important, and helping these users get their accounts and be able to share their works safely is why we’re here.  We hope that we’ll be able to help as many of them as possible.   There have been a few (thankfully few, that I’ve seen) complaints about these new AO3 users not always knowing how things work - what language to tag with, or what fandom tags to use, for instance.  To this I would say: 1. Have patience and be considerate.  They are coming to a new site that they aren’t familiar with, and using it in a language they may not be expert in, and it might take a while to learn the ropes.  You can filter out works tagged in Chinese if you don’t want to see them.  Or just scroll past.   2. You can report works tagged with the wrong language or the wrong fandom to our Policy and Abuse team using the link at the bottom of any page.  This will not cause the authors to “get in trouble” (a concern I’ve heard before, as people are reluctant to report for these reasons).  It means the Policy and Abuse team will contact them to ask them to change the language/fandom tag, and if the creator doesn’t, they can edit it directly.  If you remember Strikethrough or the FF.net porn ban or similar purges, please keep them in mind and consider that these users are going through something similar or potentially worse.  This is why AO3 exists.  We are doing our best to try and help make the transition smooth.   I am a Taiwanese and I’d like to put some context behind the recent influx of China based AO3 users. China is tightening their freedom of speech in recent years after Xi has became the chairman (he even canceled the 10 years long term of service of chairman, meaning he can stay as the leader of China as long as he lives–he has became a dictator). They censor words that are deemed “sensitive”, you can’t type anything to criticize the chinise government. Big social media platform won’t even post the posts containing sensitive words. You don’t have the freedom of publish books without the books being approved by the government either. To disguise this whole Ninety Eighty-Four nightmare, they started to pick on the easy target: the women and the minorities (China is getting more and more misogynistic as a result of the government trying to control their male population through encouraging them to control the female population through “chinese tradition family value” but that’s another story). Last year, the chinese government arrested a woman who is a famous yaoi/BL novel writer named 天一 and sentenced her 10 years in jail for “selling obscene publications” and “illegal publication” (she’s not the only BL writer who got arrested. Meanwhile, multiple cases where men raped women only get about 2 years of jail time in China). It’s a warning to anyone who want to publish anything that’s “not approved” by the government that they can literally ruin you.  Just recently the chinese government “contacted” website owners of one of their largest romance/yaoi/slash fiction sites 晉江 and announced that for now on, for the sake of a Clean Society, they can’t write anything that’s slightly “obscene”. No sex scene, no sexual interaction, they can’t even write any bodily interaction below neck (I’m not kidding here). But that’s not their actual goal. They also listed other restriction such as: can’t write anything that’s about the government, the military, the police, “sensitive history”, “race problems”, which is… you basically can’t write anything that might be used as a tool to criticize the government (as many novels did). This recent development really hurt the chinese fanfic writers. They can’t write anything without the fear of being put on the guillotine by the government to show their control. Most of them don’t even think that deep politically, they just want to write slash fictions. But there are no platform safe in China, that’s why the sudden influx of chinese users to AO3. I bet it won’t be long before AO3 got banned in China, but until then, be a little bit patient to them. As much as I hate the chinese government, I pity their people. I’m crying so loud…As a Chinese, you don’t know how your kindness meant to us. When I’m young, I read 1984, and I thought this story is so unrealistic, but now, it’s getting tougher and tougher for fanfic and the writer in China. Thank you ao3. Thank you for the people who care about Chinese people. (hope I didn’t spell anything wrong) Hi everyone! As much as I poke fun at ao3 culture on this blog, I love the platform and the community and I’m glad that it can function as a refuge for Chinese fans, both writers and readers.So followers! I encourage you all to be welcoming and helpful to Chinese fans joining us on ao3 and to be patient as the platform figures out how to integrate them. If any of you are Chinese speakers and are inclined to volunteer with ao3, I’m sure that would be appreciated. As for the rest of us, let’s remember that ao3 exists as a sanctuary for our community, especially exactly those parts of it that are most at risk under Chinese censorship (lgbt+ content, explicit fics, etc.) and let’s take this opportunity to be grateful that our community has worked together so well for so long in order to create this sanctuary. I’m delighted that that effort can now be helpful to Chinese fans facing censorship, and I’m excited to see how Chinese fans and fan culture will interact and co-create with English speaking fandom.And with that, I’m off to slip ao3 an extra 10 dollars.

Here is number 11… Here’s his third catch of the night.And that second photo is his face right after I told him “People on the internet love your flower catching skills, Mr. Slash!” Guess what Mr. Slash is up to tonight? And, he’s back at it again tonight. He got another one, and he is proud of himself. He brought in another one tonight.Thank you, Mr. Slash! He is so beautiful 😭 He’s aware of that, and loves being told that. :P Sometimes, he will hold my hand when I ask him about the flowers. He brought these two flowers in last night, and decided to pose for me when I put them near him to take photos. Plot twist! He brought back a hibiscus tonight instead of the usual ones.He must be feeling more tropical. He’s back to the normal ones now… Even when it’s raining, he still decides to go and find these.Good thing for him that whatever breed of cat he is, he has remarkably water-resistant fur! He had a very busy night while everyone was asleep last night…(Also, if you haven’t seen it, there is a video of him that’s great, too: http://thoughts-of-an-x-factor.tumblr.com/post/164359705193/mr-slash-knows-how-to-get-his-own-cat-treats-out ) He had a busy night while I was watching SummerSlam. He gave us one more last night, bringing his total from last night to 6! That’s a new one-night record for him! Mr. Slash’s flower hunting adventure master post keeps on growing. He was back at it again today. And two more from last night… Thank you, Mr. Slash! Such a good kitty! He is! I wish Oreo brought me flowers instead of birds, lizards, mice, and squirrels 😂😂 Mr. Slash even wanted to hold hands after giving me this one.He’s a special cat. :D He was asleep this morning after bringing me this one last night… Two more gifts from Mr. Slash tonight. Please tell Mr. Slash I love him. Feeling sad? Have a big fluffy kitty bringing flowers to his people. down the block is a person who is inexplicably losing all the flowers in her garden @mostlycatsmostly

This is the 10th one of these flowers Slash has stolen and brought home.
Here is number 11…

Here’s his third catch of the night.And that second photo is his face right after I told him “People on the internet love your flower catching skills, Mr. Slash!”

Guess what Mr. Slash is up to tonight?

And, he’s back at it again tonight.

He got another one, and he is proud of himself.

He brought in another one tonight.Thank you, Mr. Slash!


He is so beautiful 😭

He’s aware of that, and loves being told that. :P

Sometimes, he will hold my hand when I ask him about the flowers.

He brought these two flowers in last night, and decided to pose for me when I put them near him to take photos.

Plot twist! He brought back a hibiscus tonight instead of the usual ones.He must be feeling more tropical.

He’s back to the normal ones now…



Even when it’s raining, he still decides to go and find these.Good thing for him that whatever breed of cat he is, he has remarkably water-resistant fur!



He had a very busy night while everyone was asleep last night…(Also, if you haven’t seen it, there is a video of him that’s great, too: http://thoughts-of-an-x-factor.tumblr.com/post/164359705193/mr-slash-knows-how-to-get-his-own-cat-treats-out )

He had a busy night while I was watching SummerSlam.

He gave us one more last night, bringing his total from last night to 6! That’s a new one-night record for him!

Mr. Slash’s flower hunting adventure master post keeps on growing.

He was back at it again today.

And two more from last night…

Thank you, Mr. Slash!


Such a good kitty!

He is!

I wish Oreo brought me flowers instead of birds, lizards, mice, and squirrels 😂😂

Mr. Slash even wanted to hold hands after giving me this one.He’s a special cat. :D

He was asleep this morning after bringing me this one last night…

Two more gifts from Mr. Slash tonight.


Please tell Mr. Slash I love him.

Feeling sad? Have a big fluffy kitty bringing flowers to his people.

down the block is a person who is inexplicably losing all the flowers in her garden

America, Books, and Deer: MAKE AMERICA AN ENDLESS EXPANSE OF OLD-GROWTH FOREST WITH NO CERTAIN BORDERS AGAIN virulentblog: plaid-flannel: Seen in the window at Gulf of Maine Books in Brunswick, Maine. Photo: Bill Roorbach Except America wasn’t an endless expanse of forest with no certain borders. At least not while human beings inhabited it. The idea that native peoples did not cultivate or shape our land and that we had no borders is white propaganda meant to dehumanize and de-legitimize native peoples. This illustration here show Apalachee people using slash and burn methods for agriculture. Fires were set regularly to intention burn down forests and plains. Why would we do this? Well because an unregulated forest isn’t that great for people, actually. We set fires to destroy new forest growth and undergrowth, and to remove trees, allowing for easier game hunting, nutrient enriched soil, and better growth rates for crops and herbs we used in food and medicine. Pre-Colonial New England, where my tribe the Abenaki are from, looked more like an extensive meadow or savannah with trees growing in pockets and groves. Enough woodland to support birds, deer, and moose, but not too much to make hunting difficult. We carefully shaped the land around us to suit our needs as a thriving and successful people. Slash and burn agriculture was practiced virtually everywhere in the new world, from the pacific coast to chesapeake bay, from panama to quebec. It was a highly successful way of revitalizing the land and promoting crop growth, as well as preventing massive forest fires that thrive in unregulated forests. Berries were the major source of fruit for my tribe, and we needed to burn the undergrowth so they could grow. That changed when white people invaded, and brought with them disease. In my tribe, up to 9 in 10 people died. 90% of our people perished not from violence starvation, but from disease. Entire villages would be decimated, struck down by small pox. Suddenly, we couldn’t care for the land anymore. There weren’t enough of us to maintain a vast, carefully structured ecological system like we had for thousands of years. We didn’t have the numbers, or strength. So the trees grew back and unregulated. We couldn’t set fires anymore, and we couldn’t cultivate the land. And white people would make certain we never could again. Timber, after all, was the most important export from New England.  Endless trees and untamed wilderness is a nice fantasy. But it’s a very white fantasy, one that erases the history of my people and of my land. One that paints native peoples are merely parasites leeching off the land, not masters of the earth who new the right balance of hunting and agriculture. It robs us of our agency as people, and takes our accomplishments from us. Moreover, it implies that only white people ever discovered the power to shape the world around them, and that mere brown people can’t possibly have had anything to do with changing our environment. Don’t bring back untamed wilderness. Bring back my fire setters, my tree sappers, my farmers and my fishers. Bring back my people who were here first.  Sources: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Native_American_use_of_fire#Role_of_fire_by_natives https://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/fsbdev3_000385.pdf http://www.sidalc.net/repdoc/A11604i/A11604i.pdf For those curious I recommend reading Changes in the Land: Indians, Colonists and the Ecology of New England.https://books.google.com/books/about/Changes_in_the_Land.html?id=AHclmuykdBQCprintsec=frontcoversource=kp_read_button#v=onepageqf=false
