aka "Walter screwed something up a year ago and just realized it this week."

So back in The WWOMB days, we had series. Series were a group of stories that told a story - you know, where you group all the stories about a particular storyline into one cohesive thread of fics? Well they exists over on The WWOMB (at this link) but I never imported the series over here on SquidgeWorld.

So that's been fixed.

On each author's profile that has a series they've created on The WWOMB, there's a "Series" link on the left hand side of their authorpage that now has a number next to it. If you click on the "Series" link in their profile page, it'll take you to the series that the author created either since they've been on SquidgeWorld Archive, or as imported today from The WWOMB.

Questions? Let me know!

So a few folks, myself included, have wondered how to import works from the AO3 to SquidgeWorld Archive (or vice versa) without getting the terms of service header. I, myself, was stumped, but the good folks over at AO3 happily gave us a suggestion. So if you're going to import one of your stories that's at URL:

https://archiveofourown.org/works/9999999999

Then in the "Import Works" box, you're going to put that URL along with this suffix:

?tos=yes&view_adult=true

So your entire URL to import is going to look like this:

https://archiveofourown.org/works/9999999999?tos=yes&view_adult=true

Once you have that as your import URL, you'll fill in the rest of the fields and choose to import the works. Now of course, if your work at that URL have comments, kudos, or other attributes, all of that is going to be imported as well. So what you need to do is once you have the work imported, you'll edit it before fully submitting it. All you need to do is find the start of your work and delete everything from just before the start to the top of the HTML-encoded work, and then do the same thing from the last word of your work to the bottom of the HTML-encoded work. What's left is your actual story.
