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 memorizingthedigitsofpi, who volunteers for Fanlore.
Would you like to wrangle AO3 tags? Can you read and translate from Chinese to English? Are you interested in writing and editing public news posts? Or would you like to assist AO3 users by resolving complaints? Maybe you have an interest in wiki editing, or writing help documentation? Or you have systems administrator experience or a working knowledge of Linux? The Organization for Transformative Works is recruiting!
Fanlore has been hard at work preparing for their next event, Stub September, which is focused on expanding and creating "stub" pages (short pages with lots of room for new content to be added). For more details about the challenge, visit Fanlore's help page for the event, which is ongoing now!
