As usual, Accessibility, Design and Technology have been working hard on developing more shiny new features for the Archive of Our Own. In upcoming weeks we'll have new code for running gift exchanges on the Archive and the first version of Archive skins, and we'll be looking for more input from users. Today we're proud to unveil a cool new feature coded by our awesome volunteer Bod.
Our goal for the Archive of Our Own is that it should be as accessible and usable as possible. An important aspect of this is documentation - we want our FAQ to be clear and useful. It's a big job writing documentation for a site like the Archive, and we'd love our users' feedback. When we have completed our review of the FAQ, our wonderful translators will be translating it, making the Archive even more accessible to international users.

We skipped a meeting update on account of being very busy! However, we've been getting through lots of stuff, and you may have noticed a *cough* small deploy and its associated documentation. I took a week off to prepare for my PhD viva, but my awesome team definitely did NOT slow down in my absence *loves*
It may have seemed a bit quiet in Archive terms for a while, but that is because our designers, coders and testers have been beavering away behind the scenes on some big projects. We're happy to report that the HUGE amount of new code produced over the past few months has now been deployed to the Archive - we're very excited about the new features being introduced, and we think that you will be too!

First Accessibility, Design and Technology meeting of the year! For those of you who are new to this party, AD&T is responsible for designing and overseeing software projects for the OTW, which at present means we are responsible for the Archive of Our Own. We had a great (and very busy) year in 2009, and we're looking forward to more great stuff in 2010. \0/
