Whenever they open up invites on AO3 again I’ll let you know. I find it a lot easier to work with, myself, but FF.net does get a lot more traffic.I’d apply to AO3 and get your name in the queue. I don’t think they’re going to give members invites to give out till they get through their huge backlog of requests.
Actually, what is AO3, exactly? Is it a nicer community for writing? Or something?
http://archiveofourown.org/ is the AO3. It’s an archive like FF.net, and has several pros and cons. pros include the fact that it’s run by the Organization for Transformative Works (OTW), by fans and for fans; it doesn’t have to remove stuff to please advertisers (hi, LJ), it allows mature stuff, it supports fanart and other media that just isn’t fic. It allows for kudos (likes) and commentary, and also you can make collections and run prompt challenges and stuff. I’ve found the community nothing but awesome and supportive. However, it does require an invite, and it is less trafficked.
