Organization for Transformative Works

The Organization for Transformative Works (OTW) is a nonprofit organization established by fans to serve the interests of fans by providing access to and preserving the history of fanworks and fan culture in its myriad forms. The OTW represents a practice of transformative fanwork historically rooted in a primarily female culture. The OTW will preserve the record of that history as we pursue our mission while encouraging new and non-mainstream expressions of cultural identity within fandom.

My event is limited to a certain number of attendees. How can I ensure an accurate participant count?

Configure a price set for the fees instead of using the Regular Fees section of the Fees configuration for your event page.

Existing price sets are found under:
Events>Manage Price Sets. To create a new Price Set, you can click on Events>New Price Set. Give the price set a name and designate that it will be used for Events and choose the default financial type "Event Fee".

Once the price set has been saved, you will then need to add the price fields displaying the different options for your event.

Sprint session in the Rocky Mountain

If it is ever possible to make a lot of progress working while being completely relaxed at the same time, this was it! CiviCON Denver was immediately followed by a Sprint session located in a stunning and serene environment in Rocky Mountain National Park. Participants worked hard on coding and documentation for CiviCRM, including efforts in translations. Their work was balanced with community building and outdoor adventures. What a fabulous way to support the progress of CiviCRM!

How do I search for a list of contacts that are in one group and not in another?

If you want to search for a list of contacts that are included in a group A but not in a group B, you can use the Custom Search "Include/Exclude Contacts in a Group/Tag". This can be used to search contacts that meet criteria A but not criteria B.

Example: Find a list of contacts located in Denver, but who did not attend our Networking event.
1. Create a smart group of individuals located in Denver (group A) by conducting an Advanced Search.
2. Create a smart group of individuals who attended the networking event (group B) through an Advanced Search.

We are moving!

After more than 3 years being hosted at Rackspace, we have decided to move to Amazon in order to gain operational flexibility, launch new services and be able to better serve our international customer base. We will be busy planning and executing this move over the next couple of weeks. As always, these changes will be totally transparent for all of our customers and performed at nighttime in your local time zone as to not impact your operations. Just look forward to improved services and additional offerings in the short term!
