OTW Fannews for 20 September 2012 | Organization for Transformative Works
The Links Roundup posts are getting a new name! The Communications Committee has been using the #OTWFannews hashtag for them at Twitter for a while as it's a more distinctive name for the series and a clearer name for their content. OTW Fannews is meant to be a selective look at discussions of fandom, and issues affecting fans, in both traditional and non-traditional media venues. It also includes interviews where OTW staffers and volunteers have taken part, or discussions of the organization appear.

Here's a roundup of women in fandom stories that might be of interest to fans:

fanlore | Committee post: Category Post III Fan Communities
The wiki committee would like to offer our thanks to everyone who has commented on our recent posts about categories on Fanlore, Category proposal (May 21) and Category proposal II (June 18). Your input has been really helpful.

Based on those conversations and the conversations we've had within the committee, here's what we're now planning to do.

Fanlore will have overlapping categories under Fandoms by Canon Type so everyone can have the categories they find useful. Here's a diagram of (what we hope is) the final version of our category proposal
