We've been through enough fandom purges to last a dozen lifetimes. Tumblr's purge is only the latest. 

Corporate-run blog sites are unstable, unreliable and it can all be pulled away at any time. We have lost whole fandom histories, especially those affecting lgbtq+ and our art and fiction in these purges, disconnecting communities who are often on the front line of defending freedom of expression and standing up to archaic and often prudish suppression of creative freedom. It is exhausting constantly defending our right to a public space when those who control those spaces actively work against us, divide us and make it increasingly difficult to find and form our communities.

OTW/AO3 is the only organization that has proven to be on the side of fandoms/content creators and to defend those works. Offering a Tumblr-like blogging/social site for fans, crowdfunded and volunteer-operated, would be a wonderful extension of what OTW/AO3 has accomplished so far.

A stable platform built by us for us without corporate interference; what could be more valuable?
