Bullhorn and the words 'OTW Announcement'

As many readers know, Twitter has been undergoing changes which are destabilizing the platform, and there have been reports of frustrating user experiences as services are reduced. This is leading some individuals and organizations to explore other social media options.

The OTW has various accounts at Twitter for our individual projects as well as the OTW as a whole. We will be evaluating how Twitter fits into our news distribution efforts as the site changes continue.

During this time of possible transitions, we are taking the opportunity to remind readers and followers both where else you can find us, as well as to caution fans about new unofficial accounts that may start popping up.

Official vs. Unofficial Accounts

Many people choose to subscribe to OTW news either through their social media accounts or through feed readers. It is important to check, however, if those accounts are actually ours.

On occasion, fans will set up unofficial social media accounts, either on the same platforms we use or in spaces where we have no accounts. Unofficial accounts sometimes make that status clear and sometimes they don't. Similarly, fans on various platforms have set up RSS feeds of our news posts. These feeds are automated accounts and there is no one running them. The information may also only be available temporarily, and while they include official news, they are not controlled by the OTW and you can't reach us there.

The best way to check whether a social media account is official is to visit the ‘Where to Find Us’ page at the OTW website. This lists our live accounts across all platforms. If you're not subscribed to one of those, you are not following an official account.

Contacting Us

Official accounts are individually posted to by the Communications Committee. While we receive comments and questions on those platforms, these accounts are not always moderated and the platforms themselves may restrict our responses in different ways. To ensure that we receive your question or comment, it is therefore always best to get in touch with us through our contact form. Questions or comments regarding the Archive of Our Own should be sent to the Support team

If you're not sure who to direct your question to, try Communications, and if we don't have the answer we will send your message on to the OTW team who can help you.

The OTW can be contacted in 46 languages, something which is also facilitated by using our contact forms.

Access to Our Accounts

We are aware that people may have barriers to accessing our sites, whether it's a social media account or the OTW website itself. This is one of the reasons why we maintain official accounts in multiple locations.

While for many these restrictions may be due to local blocks from a school or business, there are also different nations which either temporarily or permanently block particular internet addresses.

If you are unable to follow us at one platform, hopefully another one of our sites will be available to you. We are always examining additional locations for official accounts in order to best reach fans, and you are welcome to send us suggestions. Although current staffing or workloads may prevent us from expanding in the near future, we will keep requests in mind as part of long-term planning.

Spread the Word!

It is tremendously helpful to the OTW when fans help us to share information either about our organization and projects or particular news releases. So please, help us reduce misinformation and boost relevant content by pointing people to our official accounts. You can also let other fans know what sorts of information they can find at our website, and that they can reach us through our contact forms. And if you come across unofficial accounts which are not listed as such, do let us know.

Thanks for your help!

Gambit Guild banner

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).

In this post:

Background explanation

The LeBeau Library, as part of The Gambit Guild, was active between 2007 and 2010. While it is still online for now, the archivist Neko was concerned about the stories being lost if she is no longer able to maintain the website.

The purpose of the Open Doors Committee’s Online Archive Rescue Project is to assist moderators of archives to incorporate the fanworks from those archives into the Archive of Our Own. Open Doors works with moderators to import their archives when the moderators lack the funds, time, or other resources to continue to maintain their archives independently. It is extremely important to Open Doors that we work in collaboration with moderators who want to import their archives and that we fully credit creators, giving them as much control as possible over their fanworks. Open Doors will be working with Neko to import the LeBeau Library into a separate, searchable collection on the Archive of Our Own. As part of preserving the archive in its entirety, all fiction currently in the LeBeau Library will be hosted on the OTW's servers, and embedded in their own AO3 work pages.

We will begin importing works from the LeBeau Library to the AO3 no sooner than January. However, the import may not take place for several months or even years, depending on the size and complexity of the archive. Creators are always welcome to import their own works and add them to the collection in the meantime.

What does this mean for creators who have work(s) on the LeBeau Library?

We will send an import notification to the email address we have for each creator. We'll do our best to check for an existing copy of any works before importing. If we find a copy already on the AO3, we will invite it to the collection instead of importing it. All works archived on behalf of a creator will include their name in the byline or the summary of the work.

All imported works will be set to be viewable only by logged-in AO3 users. Once you claim your works, you can make them publicly-viewable if you choose. After 30 days, all unclaimed imported works will be made visible to all visitors. We will then permanently close down the site.

Please contact Open Doors with your LeBeau Library or Gambit Guild pseud(s) and email address(es), if:

  1. You'd like us to import your works, but you need the notification sent to a different email address than you used on the original archive.
  2. You already have an AO3 account and have imported your works already yourself.
  3. You’d like to import your works yourself (including if you don’t have an AO3 account yet).
  4. You would NOT like your works moved to the AO3.
  5. You are happy for us to preserve your works on the AO3, but would like us to remove your name.
  6. You have any other questions we can help you with.

Please include the name of the archive in the subject heading of your email. If you no longer have access to the email account associated with your LeBeau Library or Gambit Guild account, please contact Open Doors and we'll help you out. (If you've posted the works elsewhere, or have an easy way to verify that they're yours, that's great; if not, we will work with the LeBeau Library mod to confirm your claims.)

Please see the Open Doors Website for instructions on:

If you still have questions...

If you have further questions, visit the Open Doors FAQ, or contact the Open Doors committee.

We'd also love it if fans could help us preserve the story of the LeBeau Library or Gambit Guild on Fanlore. If you're new to wiki editing, no worries! Check out the new visitor portal, or ask the Fanlore Gardeners for tips.

We're excited to be able to help preserve the LeBeau Library!

- The Open Doors team and Neko

Commenting on this post will be disabled in 14 days, on 4 December. If you have any questions, concerns, or comments regarding this import after that date, please contact Open Doors.

Five Things an OTW Volunteer Said

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.

How does what you do as a volunteer fit into what the OTW does?

I volunteer for AO3 Support. We are the team users can contact if they are having technical issues with the Archive. We deal with a very wide range of issues, but a lot of it is helping users when they are having a hard time activating accounts, changing passwords, etc. Our work helps users get back to using the site when they have a problem. This fits in with the OTW’s goals because, well, without Support a lot of users wouldn’t be able to access the Archive at all.

What is a typical week like for you as a volunteer?

We have no set schedule or required workload in Support so it varies. Mostly it's keeping an eye on the reports coming in and grabbing ones I can answer. When I have some spare minutes I will write responses and approve others' responses so they can be sent.

One of the things I appreciate about Support is that there is a lot of flexibility in the workload. If I’m feeling especially motivated I can grab a more complicated ticket, which may require internal consultation and multiple back and forths with the user. But if I am not up to a lot of work, I can pick out some easier tickets and/or beta other responses.

What made you decide to volunteer?

I was trying and failing to find work at the time and people kept telling me to volunteer to add to my resume. Nowhere in person worked for my situation or wanted my help. I'd been a fan and user of the Archive for years and the work Support does interested me. So when Support applications opened up, I figured why not!

Of course, I ended up getting a job before I even settled in with Support or had a chance to put this on my resume. But it wasn’t even a question of continuing to volunteer because I realised how much I enjoyed it.

What has been your biggest challenge doing work for the OTW?

Probably the technical aspects. Because Support deals with bug reports we often work with the Accessibility, Design & Technology Committee (AD&T) to discuss reports. My coding knowledge is minimal and a lot of the technical details go over my head, but just through osmosis I have learned a whole bunch about how the site works from a technical perspective.

The other main challenge was the sheer amount of knowledge. Knowledge of how the site works (and the issues people encounter) was one thing, but also learning how the organization works and who to ask for what was also a challenge. The OTW is a huge and complicated place with a long history. It took a bit to figure it all out and start to feel like I belong.

With all these challenges I am glad I took the time to get through them, as the work is all the more rewarding now.

What fannish things do you like to do?

I would say my main fannish activity is beta reading/editing for various fandoms. I do also do some writing myself, but betaing is what I love. I participate in and help run a variety of Big Bangs. This brings me a lot of joy, to get to plan and organize things and watch the fandom come together to create content. Of course, I also read fic and spend inordinate amounts of time discussing headcanons with my friends.


Now that our volunteer’s said five things about what they do, it’s your turn to ask one more thing! Feel free to ask about their work in the comments. Or if you'd like, you can check out earlier Five Things posts.

Banner of a paper airplane emerging from an envelope with the words 'OTW Newsletter: Organization for Transformative Works

I. FANLORE NEWS

Fanlore has had a busy month! It started off in style with its long-awaited MediaWiki upgrade, which was capably overseen by Systems. One of the big additions in the upgrade has been the introduction of a Visual Editor that makes formatting really easy - if you haven't yet, give it a whirl on Fanlore by using the "edit" tab! If you need a guide to which button does what, Fanlore’s Editing Pages Help page has got you covered!

Right after this, Fanlore kicked off its anime & manga themed month, Fanimangalore! It’s been highlighting ships, terminology (lemon, anyone?) and tropes on our Tumblr and Twitter and held an editing chat on Discord. Thanks to everyone who came along!

II. OCTOBER DRIVE

The October Drive coordinated by Development & Membership was a huge success, with 6,147 memberships and a total of US$282,261.69 raised from 7,822 donors. Thank you to everyone who donated this year! Translation translated and posted content for the drive into 30 languages, while Communications also assisted with posting - and celebrated the AO3 reaching 10 million posted fanworks in the same week!

III. AT THE AO3

Support would like to remind users to check their email listed on their AO3 account and update it to an account you have consistent access to. If an OTW committee needs to contact you, we have to contact you at the email on your account. Be especially cautious about using school (.edu), government (.gov), or business accounts: you will frequently lose access to these if you graduate or change jobs, and it will make account recovery extremely difficult!

Open Doors completed the import of the Harry Potter FanFic Archive and announced the import of The Bureau of Time and Space, an archive of Flint the Time Detective fanworks. Meanwhile, Accessibility, Design & Technology has been fielding database requests from various committees and testing a change to the wrangling code.

Policy & Abuse received 1,300 tickets in October, which is a nice, small breather from what its normal numbers are, enabling volunteers to keep chugging away at their backlog. Support’s volunteers are also keeping the ticket queue moving right along. With over 1,500 tickets a month on average, this is no mean feat.

In October, Tag Wrangling handled more than 390,000 tags, more than 840 tags per wrangler.

IV. ELSEWHERE AT THE OTW

The Board of Directors has said goodbye to outgoing directors this month. Thank you so much for your service, Rebecca, Kirsten, Anna, and Jess!

In October, Legal participated in sessions with the U.S. Copyright Office as part of the Copyright Office’s continued consultation regarding technical protection measures. It also joined allies in filing an amicus brief in the case of Hunley v. Instagram, which concerns linking and embedding on the Internet. Legal’s brief supports the rights of users to link across the internet and embed files and images in web pages and the rights of platforms to allow linking and embedding without facing potential copyright liability.

While Finance was busy finalising the 2021 audit and tax filing, Systems dealt with an issue that required it to move our domain to a new registrar. With Volunteers & Recruiting, Systems also started the process of transitioning to a new project management platform. Finally, Systems continues to work on fixing various hardware issues and working towards upgrades for our SQL servers.

V. IT’S ALL ABOUT THE PEEPS

From 23 September to 22 October, Volunteers & Recruiting received 195 new requests, and completed 217, leaving us with 51 open requests (including induction and removal tasks listed below).

As of 22 October 2022, the OTW has 960 volunteers. \o/ Recent personnel movements are listed below.

Slashknot archive banner

Slashknot, a Slipknot (band) LiveJournal community focussing on slash fanfiction and fanart, is being imported to the Archive of Our Own (AO3).

In this post:

Background explanation

The Slashknot community is being imported for archiving purposes and to allow more people to have access to the works. The archivist feels that AO3's terms of service are more adapted than LiveJournal's for this type of content.

The purpose of the Open Doors Committee’s Online Archive Rescue Project is to assist moderators of archives to incorporate the fanworks from those archives into the Archive of Our Own. Open Doors works with moderators to import their archives when the moderators lack the funds, time, or other resources to continue to maintain their archives independently. It is extremely important to Open Doors that we work in collaboration with moderators who want to import their archives and that we fully credit creators, giving them as much control as possible over their fanworks. Open Doors will be working with zort to import Slashknot into a separate, searchable collection on the Archive of Our Own. As part of preserving the archive in its entirety, all fanfic and fanart currently in Slashknot will be hosted on the OTW's servers, and embedded in their own AO3 work pages.

We will begin importing works from Slashknot to the AO3 after November.

What does this mean for creators who have work(s) on Slashknot?

We will send an import notification to the email address we have for each creator. We'll do our best to check for an existing copy of any works before importing. If we find a copy already on the AO3, we will invite it to the collection instead of importing it. All works archived on behalf of a creator will include their name in the byline or the summary of the work.

All imported works will be set to be viewable only by logged-in AO3 users. Once you claim your works, you can make them publicly-viewable if you choose.

Please contact Open Doors with your Slashknot pseud(s) and email address(es), if:

  1. You'd like us to import your works, but you need the notification sent to a different email address than you used on the original archive.
  2. You already have an AO3 account and have imported your works already yourself.
  3. You’d like to import your works yourself (including if you don’t have an AO3 account yet).
  4. You would NOT like your works moved to the AO3.
  5. You are happy for us to preserve your works on the AO3, but would like us to remove your name.
  6. You have any other questions we can help you with.

Please include the name of the archive in the subject heading of your email.

(If you've posted the works elsewhere, or have an easy way to verify that they're yours, that's great; if not, we will work with the Slashknot mod to confirm your claims.)

Details

0.9.323

Deployed on August 31. This release contained an eclectic selection of bug fixes and improvements, including some new tools our Policy & Abuse team can use to protect users.

  • [AO3-6335] - Comments are cached, supposedly for a week. But they kept hanging around longer. We made them stick to the schedule.
  • [AO3-6307] - We ended up translating some wrong things in our prep work for localized emails, but it's fixed now.
  • [AO3-5989] - Link rot came to our Site Skin Wizard. We had a link to a list of colors, but that page no longer existed, so we switched to a list on a different site.
  • [AO3-5962] - We improved the performance of the code that sends out invitation emails.
  • [AO3-5635] - To many, our "You have already left kudos here. :)" message is already an unpleasant sight, and in some cases it was made worse by erroneous extra text. We cleaned that up. :)
  • [AO3-4603] - You can now use keyboard shortcuts to copy text from help pop-ups and other modals, as you should have been able to all along.
  • [AO3-6332] - We bumped our Elasticsearch version to 7.17.
  • [AO3-6264] - We gave our invitation emails a much-needed rewrite.
  • [AO3-6144] - Protected users should not be able to have their works cited as related works.
  • [AO3-6127] - For a long time, admins with database access could hide specific comments anywhere on the site, but regular site admins couldn't. We've reworked the code and added a button so site admins can now do it.
  • [AO3-5601] - When you delete one of your works, the HTML copy that is emailed to you will no longer be a barebones version, but rather match the HTML file you'd get by using the work's Download function.
  • [AO3-2197] - We cleaned up code and moved things around in the database to remove the last remnants of a time when one could leave kudos on a chapter.
  • [AO3-6363] - We bumped the rails-html-sanitizer gem from version 1.4.2 to 1.4.3.
  • [AO3-6208] - We removed some Tag Wrangling functionality with performance so bad that nobody was using it anyway. 😅
  • [AO3-6371] - We've given our Policy & Abuse team the ability to prevent certain users from resetting their passwords. They were technically already able to do this, but we separated it from their ability to protect accounts in other ways.
  • [AO3-6374] - Our handy dependency-updating bot updated the TZInfo gem for us.

0.9.324

Deployed on September 11. We added access restrictions to some admin features, cleaned up some old code, and spruced up a few other small things.

  • [AO3-6384] - There was an automated test that sometimes failed, but not always. We fixed it, that was only for us, it changed nothing for you.
  • [AO3-6370] - In some cases, when trying to sign-up with an already registered email address, the user would see an ugly error (500), instead of a nice error ("Email has already been taken."). Now users always get the nice, helpful error.
  • [AO3-6361] - Some user-related actions by admins were not recorded in the user's history (visible to admins). They now show up there.
  • [AO3-6311] - We erroneously sent too many emails, it turned out. If you deleted a comment of yours, you would still receive notifications about edits or deletions for replies to it. Now you get silence, as intended.
  • [AO3-6280] - We cleaned up the text of the New Invitations email because it was causing issues for our Translation team.
  • [AO3-6077] - The phrasing around series was inconsistent across our site, so we gave it a do-over to get them all in line.
  • [AO3-6364] - We restricted which types of admins have access to the invitation queue.
  • [AO3-6349] - We improved the performance of the code that makes works and bookmarks show up in their respective listings.
  • [AO3-6344] - If someone or something accesses too many pages in a short time, we give them a timeout. We now include the duration of the timeout in our response -- not written on the error page, but in a format that's usable for bots and scripts.
  • [AO3-6343] - We limited which admins have the ability to manage and modify skins.
  • [AO3-5122] - We rewrote the code for the Share option on works and bookmarks so it's easier for coders to work with but still behaves the same for site users.
  • [AO3-3357] - You can now clear out the filters on any filterable page with the press of a single button! Well, link. Whatever.
  • [AO3-6369] - Getting rid of some unused code: Pseuds edition
  • [AO3-6360] - Getting rid of some unused code: Miscellaneous edition.
  • [AO3-6389] - Our automated tests related to External Works no longer fail when URLs aren't reachable.

0.9.325

Deployed on September 24. We made further changes to admin access, cleaned up even more code, fixed some unreliable automated tests, and made a few other small changes here and there.

  • [AO3-6160] - We made sure to use grammatically correct pluralizations on the Delete Pseud page.
  • [AO3-5677] - We cleaned up some code that was never noticeable to users, but bothered our error logs.
  • [AO3-2426] - The Language metadata for External Works is now editable by certain site admins.
  • [AO3-6394] - We further restricted which admins have the power to ban emails from leaving and receiving replies to guest comments.
  • [AO3-6380] - We also further restricted which admins can see the activities of other admins.
  • [AO3-6326] - The "Close" button on the reply form in your inbox was actually a "Cancel" button, so we adjusted the label to reflect reality.
  • [AO3-5779] - Large numbers on the Statistics page were hard to parse. We added thousands separators to make them more readable. (When the interface is translated, each language will use an appropriate delimiter.)
  • [AO3-5719] - The links to chapter end notes could pull you out of chapter by chapter mode. They now let you stay where you are, only transporting you to the end notes.
  • [AO3-6013] - We're now recording the last time Tag Wranglers performed certain actions related to their duties.
  • [AO3-6367] - We did a minor update to get Ruby on Rails to version 6.0.5.1.
  • [AO3-6201] - We said good-bye to some unused code related to our autocomplete fields.
  • [AO3-6041] - We also bid farewell to unused code related to user registration.
  • [AO3-6381] - We limited which admins can access the page for reviewing works marked as spam by our spam detection service.
  • [AO3-6397], [AO3-6398], [AO3-6399], [AO3-6400] - We fixed some test failures that would occasionally happen when the test suite ran too quickly.
  • [AO3-6403] - One of our automated tests assumed September 20, 2022 was in the future, which meant it started to fail on September 20. We did a little time travel and fixed that.

0.9.326

Deployed on November 3. We started using ActiveJob to handle asynchronous jobs from tag wrangling.

  • [AO3-6356] - We changed the way we process asynchronous jobs from tag wrangling so we'll hopefully have fewer errors caused by two similar changes happening at once.
  • [AO3-6406] - Yet another fix for a test failure that occurred when our tests ran too quickly! This one was related to co-creators on chapters.
  • [AO3-6411] - We used a handy dependency-updating bot to update some of our GitHub Workflow Actions... and then promptly had to take the bot out of commission due to one of its bugs, but that's a whole other story.
  • [AO3-6412] - One of the servers needed to be kicked by Systems every time we deployed new code to staging. The server's configuration now gets updated, saving Systems the trouble of kicking it.
  • [AO3-6413] - Our dependency-updating bot came through again, this time bumping the nokogiri gem from 1.13.6 to 1.13.9.
