morgandawn: Fandom is my Fandom (Fandom is my Fandom)
"I don’t like Chicken Little attitudes: OTW has been plagued by naysayers who think it’s on the point of collapse since the Livejournal post where the concept of AO3 was first proposed. OTW is not going to suddenly collapse just because the “wrong” person wins an election. But the reality is that AO3 got fucking ginormous much, much faster than anticipated, and the management and planning just didn’t keep up. There have been problems with project management, communication, and delegation for years at this point. Financially… well, OTW is Magic Mike, and fandom’s been making it rain, but a lot of that money remained stuffed in OTW’s thong, doing nothing useful. Looks like there’s no oversight of it at the moment either."
