We are pleased to publish the OTW's 2021 Annual Report, available in PDF or html formats. The report provides a letter from our Board of Directors, a summary of our activities during the past financial and calendar year, and our financial statements for 2021. Some highlights from 2021 include Fanlore's one millionth edit, Transformative Works and Cultures' new editor team, and comment freezing deployed on AO3 works and news posts.
The LeBeau Library of the Gambit Guild forum, an X-Men fanfiction archive focusing on the character Remy LeBeau or "Gambit", is being imported to the Archive of Our Own (AO3).
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 V Snow, who volunteers on our Support Committee.
