I am glad to see there is still so much interest in what's up with the OTW!
The Organization for Transformative Works is a smallish, fannish, entirely volunteer-run community/arts/advocacy nonprofit with a staff and membership who are scattered around the world and communicate amongst each other entirely online.
If you have any experience with grassroots nonprofits that should tell you more that you want to know about what's been going on.
Oh, you wanted more than that?
Okay, then, but disclaimers first: I am a staff member on the OTW's Tag Wrangling Committee, who is writing this instead of overdue staff work. (I also did a very small amount of AO3 coding work, way back in the day.) My only contribution to the recent unpleasantness was reblogging stuff on Tumblr and filking "Do You Hear The People Sing" in chat. Everything I say here is my own opinion, may be various levels of ill-informed, and does not reflect the official positions of the OTW as an org or the opinions of any other staff member.
My usual policy is "if I post it publicly, link it all you want" but I would like to request for this post, as a kindness please don't link it publicly anywhere? Feel free to share with friends if you want but I'm not well-informed enough that I'm comfortable with being The Entire Internet's Source on this.
(Also the above probably gives the impression the rest of this post is going to be way juicier than it actually is.)
( Here's what's up with the OTW )
Anyway, so there you have it, that's what's up with the OTW. A lot of the basics above are covered on the OTW website, and I thought about linkifiyng it, but I'm lazy and you can probably find the information yourself if you want the less colorful versions.
You are welcome to ask questions in comments, but tbh pretty much everything I actually know (and quite a few things I don't actually know) are included above, so I may or may not be able to answer them.
