Signal Boost: Send Your Meta a Valentine

March Meta Matters Challenge banner by thenewbuzzwuzz

Dates: March 1 to April 1

For anyone who has ever created any meta, the March Meta Matters Challenge community will be running again to help keep you going (or get started!) on archiving your meta works on AO3.

While creators have often used multiple sites to host their works, one type of work has generally been left out of fans' efforts at archiving and preserving fanworks -- meta. In many cases, meta posts have not been copied anywhere else other than the location where they were first posted, leaving them hard to find and particularly vulnerable to loss.

So what if we can make a small dent in getting it saved? The March Meta Matters Challenge is focused on not just new meta, but making sure older meta gets a chance to be read and remain a part of fandom history. While new meta is also encouraged, the priority for Meta Matters is to make sure meta doesn't vanish with sites or personal accounts when those get closed or moved.

This is a month long event that kicks off on March 1. There are no signups and anyone can participate, as anonymous comments are enabled at the Dreamwidth community.

If you have any questions about MMM, look over how the challenge works, or visit our FAQ or leave a comment!
