Cannot Add Main Characters

New member to the site here; I've been trying to submit a story to the archive, and have hit a snag when it comes to adding main characters.  I can click on these characters and highlight them, but there seems to be no way to actually select them.  I see no button to push, double clicking and hitting enter do nothing.  I may just be missing the obvious, or there may be something I'm doing wrong because I'm new and inexperienced, but I'd appreciate some help if possible.  Thanks.

Great news!

For anyone considering opting out of the migration, I'd like to mention the 'orphaned' status on AO3. AO3 has the ability to orphan a work, which keeps it in the archive but removes all author information.  I hope that authors consider this as an option instead of simply disallowing the migration for their stories.

Hello everyone,

I have wrapped up a technical conference my professional organization was hosting, so will have full attention for HASA through the rest of the year.

Open Doors

On the strength of the volunteer statements in this forum, I will be committing to move the HASA archive to A03. I think this is the best location to keep the stories together, and this seems like a good crew of people.

Something I think I should stress is that, once the stories leave this site, I will not be involved in it any longer. It will be for others to determine what happens and what directions the archive will go.

Freezing Site Stories

In anticipation of preparing, exporting and handing over the archive, the stories portion of HASA will need to be frozen. That means not just no new stories, but no changes at all to the stories. No new chapters, no changes to existing chapters or stories.  I'm setting a date of DECMBER 7th as the last day for edits to the archive. That's a little over 2 weeks away. You'll still be able to read, print, get HTML code, etc., but the scripts that process story changes into the database will be deactivated.

You will still be able to post to forums. They aren't being exported, so there's no need to freeze them, plus we'll need a way to communicate during the site wind down.

Sorry, no special requests

In the last few weeks, I've been receiving a significant number of requests from various people asking for me to do saves, exports, special coding and other technical things to preserve or hand over something about the site that they personally want. Most people have been very polite about this, with a few rather imperious demands. If you were one of the few rude people, your email has been laughed at and deleted.

For the rest, I'm going to have to be firm - no special requests, no special saves. I'm sorry that you're going to lose something you care about very much. I do understand -  I built it. It's my baby. It's my greatest creative work. I'm doing what I can to pass on what really matters - the stories - to another home where they can grow in different ways. The rest is going to fade away.

If you do NOT want your story(ies) moved to A03

If you do not want your stories moved to A03 or if your stories are already there and you don't want duplicates, set your stories to some status other than "General" or "Reviewed". Only those two status categories will be moved. Beta status stories will NOT be exported to A03. Set your works to Beta and they will be excluded from the move. You must do this BEFORE December 7th, when the archive will be frozen and no changes will be allowed.

If you miss the cut-off, then you will have to wait until the story shows up in A03 and do your edits there.

I would be happy to help with importing to AO3.  That will be much, much less time (and much easier on your servers!) than trying to download all the things I wanted.

AU: Four members of the Fellowship contemplate the nature of timelessness, and the interesting and sometimes inexplicable things that authors do.
