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 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.

"...we want it to look consistent and high quality..."

Heh, wanting it to look high quality was why I edited it in the first place. :p

If you could get whoever maitains the image generating script you use to disable chroma subsampling (set it to 4:4:4 or 1x1, 1x1, 1x1, depending on the individual script), it would make all the generated image look much better, and without bloating the filesize the way using PNG would. Aside from doing my nick in shadow (which was actually an accident, but it look good, so....), making all the colors stay nice & bright was really the only reason I bothered to customize mine.

Yeah, I know about the dynamic updating bit. However, my list won't get updated often enough for it to be an issue, and I have a template setup so that i can manually update my custom sig in just a few seconds. I can just update my profile, copy the updated sig, slap my customized nick & enhanced colorboxes over it, save it, and upload it over the old custom sig in less than a minute. The updating my profile part takes longer. ;)

 Setting up my profile initially wasn't too bad, but what was a royal pain was figuring out the number of eps for the partial series (ones I'd dropped, stalled, or am in the progress of watching), especially since many of those were years ago. :-\

The pic is from a ghost rider comic, one set in the old west. Thought it'd be interesting, but it was just lame. I did get a nice scene or two from it for sig pics though.

 Figured out the anime list thing, but there's a flaw with it. There's no "neutral" setting, aside from not touching it. There were several that I clicked thinking it was a different series, then couldn't set it back to blank.  Hard to choose "want to watch" or "won't watch" when you know nothing about the series.  :-\

btw, I made an ehanced version of my sig:  http://allspark.net/cypherswipe/anime-planet-sig.jpg
