We would like to thank everyone who responded to our previous call for Communications Staff: AD&T Liaison, Strategic Planning staff, and Translation volunteers. Today, we’re excited to announce the opening of applications for:

  • Communications Graphics Volunteers – [closing 26 April 2015 UTC]
  • Tag Wrangling Volunteers – [closing 26 April 2015 UTC (or after 50 applications are received)]

We have included more information on each role below. Open roles and applications will always be available at the volunteering page. If you don’t see a role that fits with your skills and interests now, keep an eye on the listings. We plan to put up new applications every few weeks, and we will also publicize new roles as they become available.

All applications generate a confirmation page and an auto-reply to your e-mail address. We encourage you to read the confirmation page and to whitelist volunteers -(at)- transformativeworks -(dot)- org in your e-mail client. If you do not receive the auto-reply within 24 hours, please check your spam filters and then contact us.

If you have questions regarding volunteering for the OTW, check out our Volunteering FAQ.

Communications Graphics Volunteers
Communications has primary responsibility for internal and external communication for the OTW. We manage the OTW News blog and related social media outlets, and assist other teams in managing project-specific communication. We’re looking for someone to create graphics for use throughout our posting sites. If you have experience with graphic design or fanart, click through to learn more about the role and apply to join as a Communications Volunteer.

Applications are due 26 April 2015 UTC

Tag Wrangling Volunteers
The Tag Wranglers are responsible for helping to keep the millions of tags on AO3 in some kind of order! 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 Steve/Tony with tentacles or g-rated Rose/Kanaya fluff.)

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 application form.

Please note: due to (amazing!) interest in wrangling, we’re currently looking for wranglers for specific fandoms only. See the application for which fandoms are in need.

Applications are due 26 April 2015 UTC (or before 50 applications are received)
