I have no idea if you have been using LOTRFF as your archive, but you should be aware that it has been sold to someone who wants to turn it into a for-profit enterprise. Aside from the obvious violation of the "Fan Fiction is a NOT-for-profit activity", and/or the potential mine-field involved in a tussle with the Tolkien Estate over the revenues, I personally have a great deal of trouble with the idea that this guy essentially intends to make money for HIMSELF through the use of MY hard work.

Here's his blog, where he talks about it:

Note that I speak up, and that I'm less than happy about his plans.

I have deleted all my stories from LOTRFF, as I hadn't posted to that archive in a while (long story - in essence, I got reamed for not responding to a review as quickly as the reviewer wanted me to) and so feel this as not much of a loss. But some of my friends have used LOTRFF as their main archive for years.

Just thought you all should know. FanLib kerfluffle, Take Two, anybody? :-p

A huge hug of thanks to [livejournal.com profile] nierielraina for bringing this to my attention.
