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 video games, especially 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 geekery.

I'm Anime-Planet's creator and admin, having built the site in 2001 in a quest to learn MySQL, before becoming the behemoth it is today. Anime-Planet was and is still run by a small handful of volunteers, even though we reach millions of users a month, so a great deal of my time is still spent creating features, running the project, training moderators, etc. If you're interested in helping support the site, check out this link :)

Contacting me:

As much as I'd like to be able to reply to each person who contacts me, I spend the vast majority of all free time working on the site and getting features out the door, so I rarely ever have time to read or reply to comments I get here. Most of the questions I get here are site-related questions that we have teams of moderators or forum sections to help with, and if there were less of those here in the profile, I'd have more time to reply to other comments.

Please make sure you read these notes and link suggestions for the most common site questions I get here. Another way to get in touch is in chat in the evenings, but I'd point you to the same links below if it's site questions. ;)

Thanks for stopping by! And now, enjoy some creepy amazing gifs...

I wanted to ask you about a bug i got today, i had a bug similar before too.

I had links on most of my pictures, but for some reason when i updated my profile half (probably more then half) of my pictures were gone! (I have a lot of pictures! X)

Luckly, (since the last time this happend) I ''ctrl C' everything before i updated my profile, so i tryed to paste and retry, but still (not all the same pictures) most of the pictures got deletes. After a couple try the pictures didn't got deleted, but all the links are gone! And now if i put a link the picture get either deleted or the link is gone.

The first time this happend it was a bit different, all the links had extra code..? (This only happend for around a day)


I wanted to put a link to Elfen Lied:

After i updated my profile it was like this:

Thanks for your time! :3

Just wanted to give you a heads up that episode 18 of Trickster came out today.  I would have posted over in the thread you linked to, but the site it sends me to isn't working for me to post.

I did. I also blocked my fake friends that believed the bully's smear campaign. I'm sorry to have bothered you when all I had to do was to stop caring and let go. Thank you for your advice.

Just wanted to say thanks for breaking between all that drama crap. I hope that will be the last of it. (I assume you know what Im talking about). Ill try to just drop that stuff as soon as possible if something similar happens. Have a good one!
