Fanlore Comittee Staff 
Fanlore staff members are responsible for dealing with all the behind the scenes stuff to ensure that Fanlore runs smoothly. We respond to questions and complaints; shape Fanlore policies, categories, and tutorials; assist Fanlore gardeners and other editors; promote Fanlore; and do our best to improve it and plan ahead. No extensive experience is required—only reliability, teamwork, and an interest in fannish history and Fanlore in particular. Join us!

Apply to become Fanlore Staff.
