So a few folks, myself included, have wondered how to import works from the AO3 to SquidgeWorld Archive (or vice versa) without getting the terms of service header. I, myself, was stumped, but the good folks over at AO3 happily gave us a suggestion. So if you're going to import one of your stories that's at URL:


Then in the "Import Works" box, you're going to put that URL along with this suffix:


So your entire URL to import is going to look like this:


Once you have that as your import URL, you'll fill in the rest of the fields and choose to import the works. Now of course, if your work at that URL have comments, kudos, or other attributes, all of that is going to be imported as well. So what you need to do is once you have the work imported, you'll edit it before fully submitting it. All you need to do is find the start of your work and delete everything from just before the start to the top of the HTML-encoded work, and then do the same thing from the last word of your work to the bottom of the HTML-encoded work. What's left is your actual story.
