    لقد إنتهت رسمياً حملة شهر أبريل للعضوية لمُنظمة الأعمال التحويلية (OTW)، و نحن نرغب في شكر كل من ساهم في دعمها. كرمكم و مجهوداتكم في نشر الخبر هي ما جعلت هذه الحملة الأنجح من أي وقت مضى! بدأً من ٣ أبريل تلقينا أكثر من ٢,٨٠٠ تبرُع فردي ليكون المجموع الكلي أكثر بقليل من ٦٣,٠٠٠ دولار. و لقد إرتفعت عضويات OTW إلى ٤,٨٦٩ أشخاص على الأقل!

    شكراً جزيلاً لكل أعضاءنا، متبرعينا، و لكل فرد ساعد في نشر الخبر لجعل الحملة تلقي هذا النجاح المبهر. نريد أيضاً أن نشكر موظفين و المتطوعين OTW الذين دعموا الحملة من خلال إنشأ، ترجمة و نشر المحتوى، الرد على إستفسارات المتبرعين، تصميم الجرافيكس، إرسال الإيميلات، رصد إيصالات التبرُع، و الكثير من المهام الأخرى التي لا تعد و لا تحصى. شكراً لكم لجعل هذه الحملة ممكنة.

    بالرغم من أن الحملة قد إنتهت، فنحن نقبل التبرُعات مع الشكر على مدار العام. هذا العام كان لدينا أيضاً مشروع مميز نرغب في أن نشاطره معكم، و الذي يمكن أن ترغبوا في إستخدامه إذا أردتم إخبار الأخرين لماذا تقومون بدعم OTW.

    بفضل مهارات المونتاج الرائعة ل Ash48، و مساهمات أعمال المُعجبين من قبل العشرات من المُعجبين، نحن فخورون لتقديم فيديو عن مقدمة OTW.

    الفيديو الخاص ب OTW يشرح للناس الغير معتادون على الفاندومس و أعمال المُعجبين ماذا تفعل OTW. و يقوم بتعريف الأعمال التحويلية، و يقدم لمحة عامة عن مشاريعنا و كذلك فكرة عن ما يقوم المُعجبين بإنشاءه.

    نحن نأمل أن تقوموا بمشاطرة الفيديو مع المُعجبين و الغير المُعجبين على حد سواء. يمكنكم أن تجدوه على يوتيوب (Youtube)، فيميو (Vimeo)، و المشاع النقدي (Critical Commons)، و كذلك على الموقع OTW.

    متطوعون لجنة الترجمة لدي OTW يعملون حالياً على الحاشية السينمائية للفيديو للغة العربية، الكتالونية، الصينية، الهولندية، الفنلندية، الفرنسية، الألمانية، الإندونيسية، الإيطالية، البولندية، البرتغالية، الاسبانية، السويدية و التركية. عند الإنتهاء من العمل على كل ترجمة، سوف نقوم بإرسال تغريدات و مشاركات على تمبلر (Tumblr) للدعاية عنها.

    يُسعدنا أيضاً أن نحصل على فيديو مُدبلج بأكثر من لغة ممكنة! هل تستطيعوا مساعدتنا؟ إذا كنتم بطلاقة اللسان في لغة (أو أكثر!) غير الإنجليزية و ترغبون في المساعدة في تسجيل المسار الصوتي، من فضلك تواصل معنا. سنكون سعداء للعمل معكم!

    إن مشاركة و تعاون المُعجبين في كل مكان هما ما يجعلان OTW قائمة و مشاريعها مستمرة. شكراً جزيلاً لكونكم جزء منها!

    Die Mitgliedschaftskampagne April der OTW ist nun offiziell zu Ende und wir möchten uns bei allen bedanken, die sie unterstützt haben. Ihre Großzügigkeit und Ihr Einsatz, die Informationen zu verbreiten, haben dazu geführt, dass dies unsere bisher erfolgreichste Kampagne wurde! Wir haben seit dem 3. April über 2.800 einzelne Spenden von insgesamt über 63.000 USD erhalten. Die Mitgliederzahl der OTW hat sich ausserdem auf mindestens 4.869 Personen erhöht!

    Vielen Dank an alle unsere Mitglieder, SpenderInnen und an alle, die dabei geholfen haben, die Informationen zu verbreiten, sodass diese Kampagne so ein spektakulärer Erfolg wurde. Wir sind sehr dankbar für Ihre Unterstützung! Wir möchten uns auch bei allen Freiwilligen MitarbeiterInnen und HelferInnen der OTW bedanken, die die Kampagne unterstützt haben, indem sie Material geschaffen, übersetzt und gepostet, Spenderanfragen beantwortet, Grafiken entworfen, Massen von E-Mails verschickt und Spendenquittungen überwacht haben, und unzählige weitere Dinge. Vielen Dank, dass ihr die Kampagne möglich gemacht habt.

    Auch wenn die Mitgliedschaftskampagne vorüber ist, akzeptieren wir dankbar das ganze Jahr über Spenden. Dieses Jahr haben wir noch ein ganz besonderes Projekt, das wir mit Ihnen teilen möchten und welches Sie vielleicht nutzen möchten, wenn Sie Anderen erzählen, warum Sie die OTW unterstützen.

    Dank der erstaunlichen Vidding-Fähigkeiten von Ash48 und den Fanwerk-Beiträgen von dutzenden Fans, sind wir stolz, eine Video-Einführung in die OTW vorzustellen.

    Das OTW-Video erklärt Menschen, die nicht wissen, was Fandoms und Fanwerke sind, was die OTW macht. Es definiert transformative Werke und liefert einen Überblick über unsere Projekte sowie eine Einsicht in das, was Fans kreieren.

    Wir hoffen, dass Sie das Video mit Fans und Nicht-Fans gleichermaßen teilen. Sie können es auf YouTube, Vimeo und Critical Commons sowie der OTW-Webseite finden.

    Die freiwilligen ÜbersetzerInnen der OTW sind gerade dabei, an Untertiteln in Arabisch, Chinesisch, Deutsch, Finnisch, Französisch, Indonesisch, Italienisch, Katalan, Niederländisch, Polnisch, Portugiesisch, Schwedisch, Spanisch und Türkisch zu arbeiten. Sobald eine Übersetzung fertig ist, werden wir Tweets und Tumblr-Posts darüber verschicken.

    Wir würden dieses Video gerne auch in vielen Sprachen synchronisieren! Können Sie uns dabei helfen? Falls Sie eine der oben genannten (oder andere!) Sprachen flüssig sprechen und gewillt sind, uns bei der Aufnahme einer Voice-Over-Spur zu helfen, kontaktieren Sie uns bitte. Wir wären begeistert davon, mit Ihnen zu arbeiten!

    Die Mitwirkung und Zusammenarbeit von Fans von überall her ist es, was die OTW und alle ihre Projekte weiterlaufen lässt. Vielen Dank, dass Sie ein Teil davon sind!

    OTW'nin Nisan üyelik kampanyası sona erdi. Katkısı bulunan herkese teşekkür etmek istiyoruz. Sizin cömertliğiniz ve sesimizi duyurmak için gösterdiğiniz çaba sayesinde bugüne kadarki en başarılı kampanyamızı gerçekleştirdik. 3 ile 9 Nisan tarihleri arasında toplamı 63.000 Amerikan dolarını bulan 2.800 adet bağış topladık. OTW'nin üye sayısını da 4.869 kişiye çıkarmış olduk!

    Üye olan, bağışta bulunan ve sesimizi duyurmamıza yardımcı olarak bu kampanyanın başarısına katkıda bulunan herkese teşekkür ederiz. Desteğiniz için minnettarız! Ayrıca içerik hazırlayan, çeviren, yayınlayan, bağışlarla ilgili soruları yanıtlayan, görseller tasarlayan, e-posta gönderileri yapan, bağış makbuzlarını takip eden ve daha binbir çeşit görevi üstlenerek kampanyaya destek olan tüm OTW görevli ve gönüllülerine de teşekkürü borç biliriz. Bu kampanyayı mümkün kıldığınız için teşekkürler.

    Bu kampanya bitmiş olsa da, biz yıl boyunca bağışlarınızı kabul ediyoruz. Bu sene ayrıca OTW'yi çevrenizdekilere anlatırken kullanmak isteyebileceğiniz çok özel bir projemizi de sizlerle paylaşmak istiyoruz.

    Ash48'in inanılmaz video remix yeteneği ve düzinelerce hayranın eserleriyle katılımı sayesinde, OTW'nin video tanıtımını sunmaktan gurur duyuyoruz.

    OTW videosu, fandomları ve hayran eserlerini tanımayan insanlara OTW'nin neler yaptığını anlatıyor. Transformatif eserlerin tanımını yapıp, projelerimiz hakkında genel bilgi vermenin yanısıra, hayranların yarattığı eserlerle ilgili de bir fikir veriyor.

    Hayran olan, olmayan herkesle bu videoyu paylaşmanızı umuyoruz. Videoyu OTW web sitesinde, YouTube'da, Vimeo'da ve Critical Commons'da bulabilirsiniz.

    OTW gönüllüleri şu anda Arapça, Katalanca, Çince, Flemenkçe, Fince, Fransızca, Almanca, Endonezce, İtalyanca, Lehçe, Portekizce, İspanyolca, İsveççe ve Türkçe altyazı çevirileri üzerinde çalışıyorlar. Altyazılar tamamlandıkça Twitter ve Tumblr üzerinden duyurularını yapacağız.

    Bu videonun ayrıca farklı dillerde dublajını da yapmak istiyoruz. Yardımcı olabilir misiniz? İngilizce dışında bir (veya daha fazla!) dilde konuşabiliyorsanız ve seslendirme için yardımcı olmak isterseniz lütfen bizimle irtibata geçin. Sizinle çalışmaktan mutluluk duyarız!

    OTW ve projeleri, dünyanın her yerinden hayranların katılımı ve işbirliği ile ilerliyor. Bunun bir parçası olduğunuz için teşekkür ederiz!

    OTW:n huhtikuun jäsenhankintakampanja on nyt virallisesti ohi, ja haluamme kiittää kaikkia mukana olleita. Kaikkien lahjoittaneiden ja kampanjasta sanaa levittäneiden ansiosta tästä tuli kaikkien aikojen menestyksekkäin kampanjamme! Kampanjan aikana saimme yli 2 800 lahjoitusta, joiden yhteissumma on yli 63 000 Yhdysvaltain dollaria. OTW:n jäsenmäärä myös nousi ainakin 4 869 jäseneen!

    Kiitos kaikille jäsenillemme, lahjoittajillemme ja jokaiselle, joka auttoi levittämään sanaa – teidän ansiostanne kampanjasta tuli näin mahtava menestys. Olemme kiitollisia tuestanne! Haluamme myös kiittää kaikkia OTW:n toimikuntien jäseniä ja vapaaehtoisia, jotka tukivat kampanjaa luomalla, kääntämällä ja julkaisemalla materiaalia, vastaamalla lahjoittajien kysymyksiin, suunnittelemalla grafiikkaa, lähettämällä sähköposteja kaikille käyttäjillemme, valvomalla lahjoituskuitteja, sekä suorittamalla lukuisia muita toimintoja. Kiitos siitä, että mahdollistitte tämän kampanjan.

    Vaikka tämä kampanja on ohi, otamme kiitollisina vastaan lahjoituksia ympäri vuoden. Tänä vuonna
    haluamme myös jakaa kanssanne erityisen projektin, jota ehkä haluatte käyttää kertoessanne toisille, miksi kannatatte OTW:tä.

    Ylpeinä esitämme videoesittelyn OTW:stä, kiitos Ash48:n upeiden videoeditointitaitojen sekä kymmenien fanien projektiin antamien faniteosten.

    Tämä OTW-video kertoo järjestön työstä niille, jotka eivät tunne fandomia ja faniteoksia. Se määrittelee transformatiivisten teosten käsitteen sekä tarjoaa yleiskatsauksen projekteihimme ja katsauksen fanien luovaan toimintaan.

    Toivomme, että jaatte videota sekä faneille että ei-faneille. Video löytyy YouTube:sta, Vimeo:sta ja Critical Commons -sivustolta sekä OTW:n nettisivuilta.

    OTW:n vapaaehtoiset kääntäjät työskentelevät parhaillaan arabian-, katalaanin-, kiinan-, hollannin-, suomen-, ranskan-, saksan-, indonesian-, italian-, puolan-, portugalin-, espanjan-, ruotsin- ja turkinkielisten tekstitysten parissa. Aina käännöksen valmistuessa tulemme kertomaan asiasta Twitterissä ja Tumblrissa.

    Meistä olisi myös hienoa äänittää muunkielisiä versioita tästä videosta niin monella kielellä kuin mahdollista! Voitko sinä auttaa meitä? Jos puhut sujuvasti yhtä tai useampaa kieltä, joka ei ole englanti, ja jos haluat auttaa meitä äänittämään ääniraidan omalla kielelläsi, ole yhteydessä meihin. Olisimme innoissamme, jos voisimme tehdä yhteistyötä kanssasi!

    Fanien osallistuminen ja yhteistyö kaikkialla maailmassa on se, mikä pitää OTW:n ja sen projektit käynnissä. Kiitos, että olet osa sitä!

    De ledenwervingscampagne van de OTW is officieel afgelopen, en we willen graag iedereen die eraan heeft meegeholpen bedanken. Jullie vrijgevigheid en inspanning om het bericht te verspreiden, hebben dit tot de meest succesvolle campagne ooit gemaakt! Sinds 3 april hebben we meer dan 2.800 individuele donaties ontvangen, met een totale waarde van meer dan US$63.000. Ook hebben we ervoor gezorgd dat de OTW nu minstens 4.869 leden heeft!

    Dank aan all onze leden, donoren, en aan iedereen die het bericht heeft verspreid om deze campagne zo’n spectaculair succes te maken. We zijn erg dankbaar voor jullie hulp! We willen ook graag de stafleden en vrijwilligers van de OTW bedanken, die aan de campagne meegeholpen hebben door inhoud te maken, te vertalen en te posten, op donatieaanvragen te reageren, graphics te ontwerpen, e-mails te versturen, donatiebevestigingen te controleren en nog een groot aantal andere taken. Bedankt voor het mogelijk maken van deze campagne.

    Hoewel de campagne voorbij is, ontvangen we graag donaties het hele jaar door. Dit jaar hebben we ook een heel speciaal project om met jullie te delen, dat je misschien kunt gebruiken om aan anderen uit te leggen waarom je de OTW steunt.

    Met dank aan de geweldige bedrevenheid in vidding van Ash48, en de fanwerkcontributies van tientallen fans, presenteren we met trots een video-introductie tot de OTW.

    De OTW-video legt aan mensen die niet bekend zijn met fandoms en fanwerk uit wat de OTW doet. Hij omschrijft transformatieve werken en geeft een overzicht van onze projecten, evenals inzicht in wat fans allemaal maken.

    We hopen dat jullie de video met zowel fans als niet-fans zullen delen. Je kunt hem vinden op YouTube, Vimeo, en Critical Commons, en ook op de website van de OTW.

    De vrijwillige vertalers van de OTW zijn op dit moment bezig met ondertitels in het Arabisch, Catalaans, Chinees, Duits, Fins, Frans, Indonesisch, Italiaans, Nederlands, Pools, Portugees, Spaans, Turks en Zweeds. Als er een vertaling af is, zullen we tweets en Tumblr-posts ter promotie de wereld in sturen.

    We zouden het ook geweldig vinden om deze video in zo veel mogelijk talen beschikbaar te stellen. Kan jij helpen? Als je één (of meerdere!) talen anders dan Engels vloeiend spreekt en de voice-over zou willen helpen inspreken, neem dan contact met ons op. We zouden graag met je samenwerken!

    De deelname en medewerking van fans van overal is wat ervoor zorgt dat de OTW en al haar projecten kunnen doorgaan. Bedankt dat je er onderdeel van uitmaakt!

    The OTW's April membership drive has officially ended, and we'd like to thank everyone who came out to support it. Your generosity and efforts in spreading the word have made this our most successful drive ever! Since April 3 we've received more than 2,800 individual donations totaling over US$63,000. We've also raised the OTW's membership to at least 4,869 people!

    Thank you to all our members, donors, and to everyone who helped spread the word to make this drive such a spectacular success. We’re very grateful for your support! We’d also like to thank all the OTW staffers and volunteers who supported the drive by creating, translating and posting content, responding to donor inquiries, designing graphics, sending e-mail blasts, monitoring donation receipts, and myriad other tasks. Thank you for making the drive possible.

    Although this drive is over, we gratefully accept donations throughout the year. This year we also have a very special project to share with you, that you may want to use when telling others why you support the OTW.

    Thanks to the amazing vidding skills of Ash48, and the fanwork contributions of dozens of fans, we are proud to present a video introduction to the OTW.

    The OTW video explains to people unfamiliar with fandoms and fanworks what it is that the OTW does. It defines transformative works, and provides an overview of our projects as well as an insight into what fans create.

    We hope that you'll share the video with fans and non-fans alike. You can find it on YouTube, Vimeo, and Critical Commons, as well as on the OTW website.

    The OTW's volunteer translators are currently working on subtitles for Arabic, Catalan, Chinese, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish. As each translation is completed, we will be sending out tweets and tumblr posts promoting it.

    We would also love to have this video narrated in as many languages as possible! Can you help? If you're fluent in a language (or more!) other than English and are willing to help record the voiceover track, please contact us. We'd be thrilled to work with you!

    The participation and collaboration of fans everywhere is what keeps the OTW and all its projects going. Thank you for being a part of it!

     

  • Yuletide is Coming!

    By Claudia Rebaza on Wednesday, 26 March 2014 - 4:54pm
    Message type:

    The Yuletide Archive for 2003-2008 will be moving to the AO3 early very very late :P in 2010 by early 2012, dammit! *kof* in May 2014! (Yes, really.)

    Edited 28, April, 2014: The section below discussing comment imports has a new addition.

    In this post:

    Background explanation

    Yuletide is a popular annual gift exchange, and importing the Yuletide Archive to the Archive Of Our Own has been planned for a number of years. While the challenge has been operating on the AO3 since 2009, it’s not until now that we’ve been able to actually move the original archive.

    What will happen?

    In early May, our senior coders will import the Yuletide Archive, in a similar way that the Smallville Slash Archive and 852 Prospect archives were imported. All works will be imported, and anyone accessing the original work on yuletidetreasure.org will be redirected to the work on the AO3.

    Will tags, comments and gift notifications be imported?
    The original Yuletide archive only includes ratings and fandom names; Yuletide fandoms will be automatically converted to AO3 Canonical tags upon import. You will be able to change fandom tags and add other tags to your work once you have claimed it.

    Edited to say: After some investigation it looks like we might be able to import comments as well. These comments would be imported as backdated comments on the imported work, and will be signed but not linked to an AO3 account. If a commenter would like their comment removed after the import, please contact Open Doors with a link to the work, the content of the comment, and a brief explanation. Please note that if a comment is deleted, we will provide the creator with a copy of the comment for their reference.

    We will NOT be able to add backdated comments to works after the import in May. For creators that have already uploaded a copy of their work to the AO3, we recommend including a link to the preferred copy in the work Notes to redirect viewers; when our merge tool is complete, it can be used to combine the hit counts, comments, etc. of two works, while keeping a single body. For creators who would still like to delete the imported duplicate, we can provide a reference copy of the Yuletide comments page for their work, though these may not be manually uploaded to the AO3.

    Manually copying and pasting comments onto an imported work will not be allowed. However, we will be able to import comments onto a pre-existing work on AO3 if you can contact Open Doors BEFORE the import with the following information:

    Work Title:
    YuletideTreasure.org URL:
    AO3 URL:

    If you used the Import from URL tool to add your Yuletide works to the AO3, you can skip this step. (If you can't remember, check the Yuletide URL here: http://archiveofourown.org/redirect. If the page redirects to your work on AO3, you're all set.

    Works will contain a message "for Name". Once you’ve claimed your work, you’ll be able to assign it to the recipient, if they have an AO3 account. (Note that their Yuletide name and their AO3 name might be different; we advise against assigning it unless you’re sure of their AO3 account name.)

    How will I be notified about my work being imported?
    If the email address you used on yuletidetreasure.org still works, you should receive an email from the Archive inviting you to claim your works. :D

    If you’ve lost access to the email address you used on yuletidetreasure.org, use this contact form to let us know and after the import happens, we can resend the claim email. If you've posted the stories elsewhere, or have an easy way to verify that they're yours, that's great; if not, we will work with the Yuletide Mods to confirm your claims.)

    How will I claim my works?

    The email will include a link to the claim page, where you can add your work to your AO3 account. If you don’t have an account, you’ll be able to create one at that time. Once you’ve claimed your work, you’ll be able to edit the work and add additional AO3 tags.

    I’ve already added my work to the AO3!
    Excellent! Please add it to the appropriate Yuletide Collection. If you've used the AO3's Import tool to import your work from the Yuletide website, it will not be imported again. However, if you uploaded it manually, a duplicate will be produced. Once the import is completed, please let Open Doors know the URL of the work you would like the Yuletide link to redirect to and the URL of the duplicate we should delete.

    I don’t want my work on the AO3!
    After you receive the claim email, you can choose to delete or orphan your work.

    The Yuletide Archive mods would much prefer you "orphan" your stories (i.e., remove all identifying information) rather than delete them. Orphaning of your works on the AO3 does not mean they expect you to orphan them everywhere, however. You are of course, as always, welcome to post your Yuletide stories anywhere else you want to, with whatever attribution you prefer.

    Deletion of your work from the Yuletide Collection will leave you ineligible for participation in future years. If you have any questions about future eligibility, please direct them to the Yuletide mods at yuletideadmin [at] gmail.com

    I have other questions!

    If you have further questions, visit the Open Doors FAQ page, contact the Open Doors committee, or leave a comment on this post and we’ll respond as soon as we can.

    We’re also planning to hold two public chats on Campfire (the online chat platform the OTW uses): April 26, 4pm UTC, and May 4, 1am UTC (click the links to see when the chats are held in your timezone). We'll provide a link to the OTW's public discussion chatroom in a reminder post on or before the dates of the chats.

    Anyone who has questions about the process is welcome to join the Open Doors team at those chats, and we’ll do our best to answer you.

    We’re delighted to finally welcome Yuletide entirely to the Archive of Our Own!
