Chart of Translation Teams Working with Support
Following our post on support tickets and ticket languages, here’s a chart of Translation teams that have worked with Support (in two parts for readability).

Listed are the number of volunteers in each team, counted after each recruitment drive since September 2013. As volunteers join or leave the organisation, team sizes fluctuate over time, but a general upward trend is evident. More languages, bigger teams, more to do!

OTW's Legal Committee Comments to the NTIA/PTO | Organization for Transformative Works
In October 2013, the U.S. National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) and the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) sought public comments on copyright policy issues, including the legal framework for the creation of remixes. Our Legal Committee used many stories submitted by fans to explain to these agencies, which are likely to propose new legislation about copyright, why any change in copyright law should favor freedom to make transformative works.

Tiny Release Notes for Release 0.9.5 Redux
After deploying version 0.9.5 of the Archive last weekend, we (along with the entire Ruby on Rails community) were alerted to a critical security issue that had to be fixed immediately. We had just upgraded to Rails 3.0.19 and were working on fixing an unexpected bug this upgrade had caused: work information in subscription emails had lost its line breaks and arrived in one hard-to-read blob.

Release Notes for Release 0.8.20 and 0.8.21
These release notes bring together details for two small updates, one we deployed shortly after Release 0.8.19 to address a couple of issues which arose, and the one we deployed today.

Some of you may have noticed a temporary site glitch on June 30/July 1. This was caused by a leap second in the UTC time standard which caused problems for a number of sites across the web. Our servers got all confuzzled and had to be rebooted by our ever-alert Systems team. Unfortunately, a small number of kudos and subscriptions emails were lost during this time: many apologies for this!

Today's deploy comprises a handful of small tweaks to the Archive, which make up the last of our performance-related "emergency" updates. We will now focus on the upcoming 0.9.0 release, which we're hoping to have ready to go later this month. This release will come with a major rewrite of the browse & search navigation (replacing the currently disabled filtering system) and a host of bug fixes. Expect significant improvements to rich text editing, collections and challenges, and the help pop-ups all around the site, among many other things.

Over the past few months, we've had a total of eight new coder volunteers coming in, many of whom dived right into our code and already submitted bug fixes or are currently working on feature enhancements. In addition, the Testers group welcomed several new volunteers. We are grateful to anyone donating their time, skills and passion to the Archive, be it as coders, testers, tag wranglers or Support staff. Many thanks also to the members of the Volunteers & Recruiting committee, who have been tireless in getting new people sorted and settled in. \o/

Release Notes 0.8.19
Yet another update from your tireless archive volunteers! James from our Systems Committee has been making adjustments behind the scenes to stabilize the servers and get the most out of our caching, and we've seen some good improvements there. At the same time, we've been working on improving or scaling back the areas of our code where changes will give us the biggest gains.

AO3 - 2011 in review! | Organization for Transformative Works
2011 was an amazing year for the Archive of Our Own, and we wanted to take a moment to look back and to thank everyone involved, including all of our users and volunteers! AO3 started its open beta about two years ago, towards the end of 2009. That year, we were really still putting the pieces together, building out the core functionality. In 2010, we started to pick up more momentum with people posting their works and archiving their older fic and art. We added gift exchange challenge hosting, kudos, downloads and skins. This year, we've done a lot of work on site performance and infrastructure, usability improvements, and new features like subscriptions and prompt meme challenges.
