disclaimer 1: I am a former staffer who took a break from the org, who might return back or not in future.
disclainer 2:  Since I am no longer a volunteer, there is no way on earth my opinions can reflect official opinions of AD&T of OTW or anyone really but myself. :) Just so that we are clear.

Criticism and AD&T

learning from criticism and fixing things are important )

Design and testing process

don't let your coders hog designing. Value user feedback for real and your Q&A team. Document )

AO3 skins what went wrong and what didn't.

the new layout might have failed badly, but the underlying code has the potential to allow better design and testing process for skins and layouts in future )
autumnus: photomanip that looks like a monster with tendrils coming out of face and yellow eyes (anger)
Its been a busy week, I have 10-12 paintings that needs to be done and at least 5 books to be read, so this post was supposed to not happen. I am not comfortable making this post: I am not a good writer and I fear that I am too frustrated to be coherent. I don't write this to put out new ideas anyway. Posts linked below pretty much summarizes already what I mean to say. I am writing to support: to underline that this isn't few outsiders trying to cause wank. There more of us. There IS a problem here.

long version )



The short version (for those who don't want to go through the cut)

You should read More on the OTW 2011 Board Election by [personal profile] starlady, OTW, or, I am exhausted by
[personal profile] renay and The value of constructive negativity by [personal profile] ira_gladkova

I am frustrated with what is going on concerning tone arguments flying around, and org culture of silence in favor of the illusion of everything going fine.

I'll be voting (assuming my membership payment went through in time) for Jenny Scott-Thompson, Julia Beck, Lucy Pearson and Nikisha Sanders.
