The Webmasters, or "Webs", Committee is one of the committees involved in the Organization for Transformative Works.

The Webmasters design, build, and maintain websites for the OTW. We support the OTW's mission by making information about the organization and all its projects available on the Web.

The sites we work on include:

The Webmasters committee does the design and ongoing maintenance for OTW websites. Our CMS of choice is WordPress, and we’re always looking for qualified developers to help out, particularly proactive volunteers who possess initiative and the willingness, time, and tenacity to learn new skills. Desired skills include WordPress, XHTML, CSS, PHP, graphic design, and familiarity with usability/accessibility standards. It is not necessary for any one person to possess all of these skills; while the committee currently leans toward generalists, there could be opportunities to specialize based on interest and skills.
