AO3 Documentation Staff

Do you enjoy helping others learn about AO3? Are you an awesome beta, or a writer with an eye for technical details? If so, then please consider joining Docs!

AO3 Documentation is the committee that writes and updates AO3 FAQs, tutorials, and more. We’re looking for people who love the Archive of Our Own and who have experience relevant to writing and proofreading user help documentation. If that sounds like you, then please follow the link for more information and apply today!

Applications are due Wednesday 7 August 23:59 UTC


Communications Chair-Track Staff

Do you love working with people? Are you an organizational wizard? Can you communicate clearly to a diverse audience? The Communications committee is looking for new chair-track staffers to join our team.

Communications is the central information distribution team for the OTW. We manage news posts, media outreach, social media, and more. The chair-track staffer position is for people who have the time and dedication to learn all about our operations so that they can be considered for the role of committee chair.

We're looking for someone who has experience with communications and an understanding of social media, who is comfortable with personnel management and training new recruits, and who can write and edit for a global audience. If that's you, please apply!

Applications are due Wednesday 7 August 23:59 UTC


Fanlore Graphics Designer Volunteer

Would you like to help Fanlore reach more fans and get new editors? Do you have graphic design skills and enjoy creating social media content? If so, we need your help! The Fanlore team needs designers to create graphics and banners for Tumblr posts, tweets, and Fanlore challenges, to help us reach more fans and potential editors. We have a lot of amazing fan history content, but we need your help to help others find out about it. If you think you might enjoy that, come and join us!

Applications are due Wednesday 7 August 23:59 UTC


Translation Volunteer

If you enjoy working collaboratively, if you're fluent in a language other than English, if you’re passionate about the OTW and its projects, and want to help us reach more fans all around the world, working with Translation might be for you!

Translation volunteers help make the OTW and its projects accessible to a wider global audience. We work on translating content by the OTW and its projects from English to other languages, such as site pages, news posts, AO3 FAQs and AO3 Support emails. (However, we do not translate fanworks.)

We really need volunteers who speak Afrikaans, Arabic, Bengali, Filipino, Galician, Hebrew, Hindi, Japanese, Latvian, Lithuanian, Macedonian, Marathi, Persian, Romanian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Thai, Ukrainian and Welsh—but help with other languages would be much appreciated. If you're interested in starting a team for a language we don't have yet, you're very welcome to!

(Please note that our Catalan, Chinese, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Korean, Malay, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese-BR, Portuguese-PT, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish and Vietnamese teams are not accepting new members at this time.)

Applicants may be asked to translate and correct short text samples and will be invited to a chatroom interview as part of the selection process.

More information about us can be found on the Translation committee page.

Applications are due Wednesday 7 August 23:59 UTC
