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.

that's actually why i have yet to do a suspension. there aren't any reputable groups anywhere near where i live and i can't afford a trip out of state at the moment.

great site, although the more i'm on here, the more my list grows, and according to my husband, that's a bad thing :)

Hey sothis, thanks for the warm welcome. Kind of surprised me I must say, wouldn't have thought that anyone would remember me :P

That said, I guess I'll try contributing further to the ARD when I find time to do so. It's really grown to be pretty big ^^ Nice to see that you've stayed with this project all the time and although it must've seemed like it wouldn't work out at times (just remembering how frustated you were with the ARD when no one made recommendations), you still kept going.

By the way, the Anime list system is absolutely awesome. Wish I could code something like that so that I could make a similar list for my non-anime movies and especially all my video games! But I don't even know the least about Ajax (which I suppose you're using here) :P

Hi Sothis!  I was really surprised to get a message from you on my profile.  Yeah, you're right, I've been neglecting this account severely, do you regularly check the activity of accounts or were you just bored?  :P  You're background is sort of similar to mine, I graduated from university with a computer science degree as well and am working.  I'll try to log in more, there's a tonne of new anime added since I've last logged on.  Is there some kind of functionality that I can import my list from anidb?  That would make my life easier.  Thanks, and it's nice to get a poke from you.
