How will I get control over my imported works?

  • If the email address registered on the original archive is the same as the email address registered on the Archive of Our Own:
    1. You will receive an email letting you know your works have been imported and synched to your account.
  • If you have access to the email address associated with the account on the original archive, you will receive an email letting you know your works have been imported and giving you the following options:
    1. Claim the works on the Archive of Our Own and create a new account which they will be associated with (this means you get an AO3 account if you don’t already have one). You can then edit, delete, etc, the same way you would with any work you posted on the AO3.
    2. Claim the imported works and associate them with your existing AO3 account. You can then edit, delete, etc, the same way you would with any work you posted on the AO3.
    3. Delete the imported works. If you do this, you will also have the option to prevent any future works associated with that email address being imported onto the Archive.
    4. Orphan the imported works. This leaves the works on the Archive, but removes them from the control of any user account. You can choose whether to remove the name they were associated with on the old archive, or leave it displaying as a pseud. (Please note: If you choose to orphan your works, you will want to check them over first and edit out any remaining identifying data.)
  • If you don’t have access to the email address associated with the account on the original archive:
    1. Contact Open Doors with your account name on the original archive, any information that can help verify your identity.
