A result of SquidgeWorld's previous life as Peja's WWOMB is that "combination" fandoms exist in the archive. In The WWOMB you could choose a single fandom called "NCIS/The West Wing" instead of choosing both fandoms, and that was fine at the time.

But because of the new archive, these old multi-fandoms mean a person wanting to read an NCIS story would miss ones using the NCIS/The West Wing fandom. So, I've undertaken a project to get rid of these, even in older stories. So there are some combination fandom fics that are15 years old, but they'll be updated by me, breaking them from the single combination fandom to multiple distinct fandoms.

Questions?

There has been some discussion over on Dreamwidth (at this link) about possibly adding works in the public domain as a secondary exception to the "No links to Patreon, Ko-Fi, etc" rule. Looking through the "Books and Literature" section of fandoms, there are several that caught my eye, such as The Bible, The Picture of Dorian Grey, Moby Dick, Paradise Lost, among others. Before I make a decision on this, I would like to hear from SquidgeWorld users.

If this goes through, then public domain fandoms would be updated to have "[Public Domain]" as part of the fandom name (or something similar).

Please give me your thoughts on this. Thanks!

I've updated the Terms of Service for SquidgeWorld.org archive. You can find the details here, but in a nutshell, it's explicitly stated that users may not link to any money-making properties such as KoFi or Patreon with very, very limited exceptions.

Second Note: Congrats to SquidgeWorld user Beverly as the official winner of the random story since there was a technical error with the first winner's entry. The story that Beverly won for is No Ordinary Love in the Harry Potter fandom.
