Mid-Month Memo 17: Lost Authors – Preserving Their Legacy

.

We have a new specialist title page on the website, dedicated to preserving the legacy of authors who have been lost to the fandom over time.

It’s a sad fact that writers come and go, and their stories become ‘orphaned’ on mailing lists and FB groups.  Many stories on this page were rescued from the old Yahoo groups (Morro Coyo, Green River, and Spanish Wells) before being lost forever when Yahoo shut down those sites. 

Since then, we’ve been debating what to do with them. Normally, we would only archive stories with author permission – we don’t own the stories, after all! It’s a different issue when it comes to listing stories archived on public archives such as fanfiction-dot-net or AO3 because (i) the author has posted them up where anyone can read them and (ii) we aren’t archiving them here ourselves, just letting readers know the stories exist and where to find them. But even in those circumstances, we’ve removed links when authors said they didn’t want their stories listed on the Gateway at all. All of this is basic courtesy, and acknowledges where story ownership lies.

So where we have no contact with the author at all and they haven’t been active or known in the fandom for years… well, we’ve been dithering for a considerable time about whether or not to archive. In the end, we’ve bitten that bullet. The stories here are all ‘orphans’ and we’re concerned that one day we could lose them completely. So, we’re storing them here to make sure that doesn’t happen.

However – and it’s a big ‘however’ – the original author still owns the story. Should they reconnect with the fandom at some point, we will naturally respect whatever they wish to do with their story.

If you know any of the 19 authors listed here, or if you are one of them and we haven’t made the connection (!), do let us know how to make contact so we can talk with them directly about archiving.

Here are the orphaned stories, with the date each was first posted in Yahoo if we know it:

Mid-Month Memo 16: God Bless Us, Every One

In other words, its once again time to remind you all of our amazing collection of Christmas stories from the Holidays special collection page. There are lots of Christmas stories. Lots and lots and lots, in fact.

To get us in the right mood…
“There are many things from which I might have derived good, by which I have not profited, I dare say,” returned the nephew. “Christmas among the rest. But I am sure I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round—apart from the veneration due to its sacred name and origin, if anything belonging to it can be apart from that—as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow-passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys. And therefore, uncle, though it has never put a scrap of gold or silver in my pocket, I believe that it has done me good, and will do me good; and I say, God bless it!”

Mid-Month Memo 15: Veteran’s Day and Thanksgiving

November gives us two opportunities to share themed stories with you: Veteran’s Day/Memorial Day on 11th November, and Thanksgiving on 24th. We don’t have huge numbers of stories under either category (stand by for next month’s reminder about Christmas stories which will bust your email box!), but certainly enough to share with you the poignant and moving stories that remember the sacrifices made by the military, or which celebrate family coming together to give thanks.

SITE NEWS

An issue with leaving comments
Normally, when a reader comments on a story, WordPress sends the archive team an email notification that (i) we use to approve the comment so it’s published on the story page and (ii) we can top-and-tail and forward on to the author so they know they have comments to see and respond to.

WP stopped sending us notifications for several days this week. The comments were not lost, but we had to open the dashboards to each subsite of the Gateway (that’s 12 different sites!) and manually approve the comments on each dashboard, and then work out how to let the authors know. Because that was slow and laborious, we were doing one sweep across the subsites a day rather than constantly monitoring a single email box, meaning delays before comments appeared on the story pages.

After reporting it to WP support – and a bit of judicious nagging on our part – notifications are starting to trickle through. We’re tentatively hopeful the problem has resolved, but not entirely convinced, so if you’ve commented and you’re wondering where your comment is, we may still be battling it out with WP…

.

Norton Security thinks we’re dangerous…

Well, Johnny Madrid might be dangerous, but websites devoted to Lancer stories most certainly are not. However, we had a reader tell us that her copy of Norton, the internet security/anti-spam system, had flagged the LancerLovers T-Z subsite as a dangerous site. This wasn’t universal, as two of the archive team didn’t have similar problems with Norton, but one reader was enough! We raised a dispute with Norton, and it was resolved within 24 hours, which is pretty good. LancerLovers T-Z is deemed safe again.

But, as part of raising the dispute, we ran all our websites through a checker, and Norton has rated only two of them. That means that at any time, they might take the same action with the other ten.

So this is just a head’s up: if you ever get an error message warning you against one of our websites, please let us know asap. We’ll then take it up with Norton, hopefully with the same swift resolution as we had this week.

Mid-Month Memo 14: Hallowe’en

      

Another opportunity to remind you of our specials collections lists of titles, where we list stories around particular themes. Our collection of Hallowe’en stories comes second only to the Christmas set – there’s something about the holiday that brings out the ghostliness in our writers, it seems! Enjoy being scared and spooked by the stories we’ve listed here…

Site Statistics

We’ve been totting up the monthly visitors/views stats for the sites and their subsites for a little while now. Now while we nerdy creatures quite like to look at stuff like that, it’s not for everyone. So, unless there’s a mass outcry and lots of disappointment from you all, we’re going to switch to doing an annual roundup that counts views (that is, pages visited), visitor numbers, likes and comments for each calendar year. We’ll publish this in the January roundups.
