It's almost election time! The Organization for Transformative Works (OTW), the nonprofit behind the Archive of Our Own, Fanlore, Transformative Works and Cultures and other projects, will hold elections for its Board of Directors on September 23–26, 2016.
Every month or so the OTW will be doing a Q&A with one of its volunteers about their experiences in the organization. The posts express each volunteer's personal views and do not necessarily reflect the views of the OTW or constitute OTW policy. Today's post is with Sumeria, who volunteers as a staffer in the Tag Wrangling Committee
Our last 14 deploys contained a lot of behind-the-scenes work, including improvements to the tools our wonderful Open Doors, Abuse, and Tag Wrangling committees use. We also squashed some annoying bugs concerning challenges, chapter counts, and the font on work summaries.
