Kink meme question?

(Anonymous) 2016-12-06 12:00 am (UTC)(link)
More of a general question about the kink meme, which is maybe a dumb question - do we *have* to post on AO3 anonymously, or even post to the collection there at all if we fill a prompt? One of the prompts on here was an idea I already had independently, anyway, but I wasn’t sure and didn't want to do the 'wrong' thing. (I’ve never actually done the kink meme thing before). (This is assuming I ever actually write anything but I like to be prepared ;D).

(This is technically not OT I guess but it's also not a prompt?)

That's something I am wondering too. I think I have about two fics that I posted there under my own account which were then made anonymous. I tried contacting the person managing the collection about possibly having them removed if they could not be attributed to me, but there has been no reply.

When my works were collected for The Force Awakens kink meme on AO3, I was allowed to keep them under my name. So, I reckon that it is possible to keep it under an AO3 collection in your own name. I'm just very puzzled as to why this kink meme has forcibly made works anonymous...

Cool, thanks, glad it's not just me! As I said, I've never posted anything in a kink meme/kink meme collection before but I remembered after posting this I'd had a prompt filled for the TFA kink meme and the author posted it on AO3 with their own name!

Hopefully you get a response.

It's definitely puzzling. I suppose, as it was an idea I'd already had, I'll just post it on AO3 (if I ever write it haha) and not in the collection?

Thanks for the reply :)

Would it be possible to have a collection that isn't anonymous with a sub-collection that is, for people who want to post their works anonymously? I've been on several kinkmemes that did it that way.
