During the past few months the Wiki committee has not completed several projects that we wanted to complete and has not communicated with Fanlore users as much as we wanted to. There have been various reasons for this, including a shortage of personnel, overscheduled staffers, and unfinished past business. We sincerely apologize and are determined to do better.

We have worked on improving our internal documentation and training material and are now proud to say that we are able to open recruiting for new Wiki members. Specifically, we are looking for two staff members and one design specialist.

Staff members are responsible for the day-to-day work of the Wiki committee. We respond to questions and complaints; shape Fanlore policies, categories, and tutorials; assist the gardeners; try to promote Fanlore; plan larger projects, and generally try to be as helpful as possible. No special experience is required, only the ability to work in a team and an interest in fannish history and Fanlore in particular.

If you are interested, please take a look at the volunteers page.

We are also looking for a design specialist to create a new design and skin for Fanlore, with special emphasis on usability and accessibility. If you have experience with front-end web development and web design, please check out the volunteers page.

If you're not interested in a staff position, but would like to be a gardener, please contact the Wiki committee.

Applications for staff positions are due November 4th. If you have any questions about volunteering we'll be happy to answer them.

We are looking forward to working with our new members, and we hope that with their help we'll be able to continue moving Fanlore forward in the next year.
