Hi there! I'm a not-so-normal girl living in Seattle, WA. I work for a software company as a writer of developer documentation, but my background is computer science and programming. In my spare time I enjoy console RPGs such as my obsession, Dragon Quest (or old school PC ones such as Ultima aka best games ever, or Sierra adventure classics), anime (duh!), sci fi, movies, my cats, and various other nerd things.

I created the Anime-Planet site many years ago, as a simple hub for a community. It has grown so much since then, and I'm proud to call myself its creator and admin. Please enjoy your stay here!

----------------

My anime list stats and uses:

Watched: as it should be used, this means I've seen the entire series.

Watching: Either am currently watching or plan on continuing at some point soon

Stalled: I mark things as stalled when I either can't continue (no more episodes available), or plan on finishing eventually - just not right now.

Dropped: I don't plan on finishing this anime.

This is a major long shot, i missed the whole, "we're killing the blog thing" is there any way I can get the content of my blog back? I'm sure you hear this question 10000x a day, but I'd really love to get mine into a tumblr or something. ;~;

WECO strives to welcome every new member within 48 hours of signing up, so they will be encouraged to stick around and participate on the site, and so they have someone they can turn to if they have any questions! The club is a great way to meet people and make new friends on the site, so I think it -is- doing good things. I love your website here, sothis, and want to help make it last a long time as a great place for anime fans to hang out and utilize the features! A-P rocks! Thank you for continuing to dedicate so much time and effort to this site, and if I can be of assistance, please let me know! *big smile*

Greetings, Sothis! I apologize if the following has been suggested before:

The 'Life on Anime' feature is brilliant, and including the ability to add the amount of rewatches for various series is a great boon. However, there is one thing that is not factored in with this system, and that is the skipping of filler episodes.

In long series (especially shounen), it's not uncommon for people to skip huge batches of filler episodes; they often add nothing to the overall plot, and are never mentioned again. However, there is no way to indicate this properly using the built in Anime-Planet system. After some thinking, I believe an additional field that mirrors the total episode count, but subtracts from the total 'Life on Anime' time would work. Everytime someone chooses to skip a filler episode, they could increase the filler skip count appropriately.

However, this isn't without it's own problems. This would make the status of 'Watched' something that's more in the eye of the beholder rather than an absolute truth. Still, there are people far more OCD than myself out there that would scream eternal praises to the sky if this feature were added.
