From time to time, the OTW will be hosting guest posts on our OTW News accounts. These guests will be providing an outside perspective on the OTW or aspects of fandom where our projects may have a presence. The posts express each author's personal views and do not necessarily reflect the views of the OTW or constitute OTW policy. We welcome suggestions from fans for future guest posts, which can be left as a comment here or by contacting us directly.
Shortly after we upgraded the Archive to Rails 4.2, users began reporting they were being redirected to the login page when submitting forms (e.g. bookmarking a work, or posting a comment). Our coders were unable to find the cause of this problem and hoped it would resolve itself when we upgraded to Rails 5.1.
Many of you may be new to the Organization for Transformative Works (OTW) while a few of you have been following our progress since we launched in 2007. Either way, we hope there are things you've been discovering about us this month. As our next big anniversary won't be for a while though, here are 25 things about our organization you can find out right now!
