piltover’s finest a03 rss feed update (psa)
As you can see (after this CaitVi week avalanche? :) after a brief hiatus for reorganization - the RSS feed blog is back. We went through a minor overhaul, we have new people pitching in to lend a hand - but it's the same old place, with same old goals - and some old, and some new rules:
TAGS TO TRACK: As of now there will only be the two RSS feed ones (ao3feed-piltovers-finest and a03feed-piltovers-finest) and that single main one - caitvi to prevent spamming/clogging, as promised in the initial post. But if you're still one of those tag-policing folks, block and ignore is a two-click endeavour, so feel free.
BACKLOG: Our break was a tad unexpected, and it took some time to reorganize (and for some of us to get training in basic coding ;) but the steady stream of fics never ceased from A03. So the backlog became overbearing - and those fics unfortunately will NOT be posted. BUT...
MISSING FIC RE-POSTS: After conferring with some authors who got in touch, an option to RE-post those is now possible. This blog is here for the convenience of us all: an audience craving more stories, as well as all those lovely talented people out there writing those stories and sharing them with us - and deserving all the encouragement and endorsement we can offer them in return. So if you are one of them as well - and your fic was one of those that fizzled in that backlog, please let us now. Just DM us and we will re-code and re-post.
CONTENT QUALITY: Even between all of us now, it is still physically impossible to read everything, so we can not offer any guarantees about the content quality. But it goes without saying that, based on what's presented from descriptions and the tags - it's your choice to peruse, or respectfully move on. It is the responsibility of both author and the reader - the first one of creating the content (and of course marking/tagging it appropriately) and the latter one making their own choice about consuming and engaging.
FIC TAGS: To prevent any further unpleasant situations this time around ALL posted fics MUST have pertinent, unambiguous tags - main, as well as all the additional ones. The content itself is naturally writer’s prerogative, but the issue of the reader’s choice to engage or not is also non-negotiable (so no, vague little acronyms not familiar to those who do not browse Craigslist personals are not enough) and then everything is simple: if forewarned about the content, one can still choose to give it a shot (and be hopefully pleasantly surprised) or not. Insufficient or inappropriate tagging may lead to misunderstandings and/or dismay, and that's exactly why everyone out there usually does abide to the common courtesies of tagging their 'junk', no?
ANONYMOUS POSTING: This blog will henceforth not waste time screening explicit "Anonymous" fics, nor posting them. Because if someone refuses to put their name on it it's usually for dubious reasons (one of them recently featured bestiality, go figure) so why should we?
BLACKLISTS: People create these spaces to present their content and all the safewords and blacklists are unfortunately a necessity, ultimately to protect ourselves as well as everyone else. And as stated in the initial post - we will be filtering only extreme content (rape, underage, gore, incest, beast, etc) so please use your own regular blacklists for anything else. If there are any other discrepancies or inconsistencies to this rule, please inform us and we shall review accordingly.
UNRELATED DISCUSSIONS: This blog is not here to facilitate discussions (be it about systemic issues, encroaching the spaces of others - or authorial egos and other similar nonsense) nor to arbitrate personal issues and conflicts - it is here ONLY for the fanfiction, good vibes and (hopefully great) stories about the characters we all love. So if you feel inclined to, only fanfiction reviews, recommendations, questions, suggestions and proposals will be (wholeheartedly! :) encouraged.
And that'd be all. Keep enjoying all those fics that are definitely helping us all bypass this long wait until S2, and if you do... as always - make sure to let the authors know, and of course - share your thoughts with the rest of the class, here?
