Fanlore Graphic Designers

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 social media posts, editing challenges and other outreach projects, to help us reach more fans and potential editors. We have a lot of amazing fan history and fandom 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 will close 17 August 2022 at 23:59 UTC or after 40 applications are received.

 

Fanlore Social Media & Outreach Volunteers

Do you have an interest in fandom history, or in fannish culture and the different tropes, ships, communities and viewpoints that make up fandom? Are you interested in social media, community management or outreach? The Fanlore committee is recruiting for Social Media & Outreach volunteers!

Fanlore Social Media & Outreach volunteers are responsible for managing Fanlore’s social media outlets and planning their content, brainstorming ways to reach new editors and promote fandom history, and running Fanlore’s various editing challenges.

No extensive experience required—only reliability, teamwork, good communication skills, and an interest in fandom and Fanlore in particular. Join us!

Applications will close 17 August 2022 at 23:59 UTC or after 40 applications are received.

 

Tag Wrangling Volunteers

The Tag Wranglers are responsible for helping to connect and sort the tags on AO3! Wranglers follow internal guidelines to choose the tags that appear in the filters and auto-complete, which link related works together. (This makes it easier to browse and search on the archive, whether that’s Shěn Wēi/Zhào Yúnlán with ABO Dynamics, Pepper Potts/Tony Stark with angst, g-rated Rose Lalonde/Kanaya Maryam fluff, or Jeon Jungkook & Kim Taehyung | V Are Childhood Friends.)

If you’re an experienced AO3 user who likes organizing, working in teams, or excuses to fact-check your favorite fandoms, you might enjoy tag wrangling! To join us, click through to the job description and fill in our application form. There will also be a short questionnaire that will help us assess whether you have the skills and attributes that will lead to your success in this role.

Please note: You must be 18+ in order to apply for this role. For this role, we’re currently looking for wranglers for specific fandoms only, which will change each recruitment round. Please see the application for which fandoms are in need.

Wranglers need to be fluent in English, but we welcome applicants who are also fluent in other languages, especially af Soomaali (Somali), Bahasa Indonesia (Indonesian), Español (Spanish), Filipino, Italiano (Italian), Polski (Polish), Português, Tiếng Việt (Vietnamese), ไทย (Thai) and 中文 (Chinese - we welcome all dialects) — but help with other languages would be much appreciated!

Applications will close 17 August 2022 at 23:59 UTC or after 120 applications are received.
