Coding and challenge moderation open house

Do you code for the Archive of Our Own or would you like to do so? Now is the time to learn how! Jenny, Training lead for the OTW's Accessibility, Design, & Technology committee, will lead a chat on coding for the OTW and the AO3, and also cover challenge moderation and challenge code. If you're a current coder, a new coder, or interested and curious about coding, this is the chat for you! If you've run a challenge on AO3 or want to learn more about how that works, this is the chat for you, too!

All are welcome! The chat will be held on Saturday, 27 August at 04:00 UTC (what time is it in my timezone?) in OTW's public chatroom on Campfire. The chatroom can be accessed at

Accessibility, Design, & Technology is the guiding body that coordinates software design and development on behalf of the Organization for Transformative Works.

For those who aren't familiar with the org-wide meeting, it happens every month, open to all volunteers, and we have one hour of training followed by two hours of status updates from every committee. It's a good way to hear a bit about what's going on behind the scenes at the OTW. Occasionally we open up the training to the general public as well, like this time.

(Disclaimer: This is not an official post, just a signal boost. I am the training lead for AD&T.)

I decided to host a AO3 commenting (and fic rec) meme in my journal to challenge people to read fic beyond their 'comfort zone' and to leave more feedback to writers. AO3 has a reputation of being a writers' archive (possibly for a reason), so I'm hoping that more people would consider using it for reading as well.

[personal profile] boundbooks has made a great post in [community profile] ebooks about how non-fanfiction reader might enjoy AO3. It includes an introduction to browsing the archive and suggestions where non-fanfiction reader might start looking for stuff they might like.

Greetings, AO3 enthusiasts! Last night I made a post encouraging people to fill out their user profiles. In particular, as someone interested in making podfic, I'd love it if more people would put up their contact information and a statement about remixes, podfics, art, and other fanworks inspired by their work.
