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...

O_O You're creepier than me, how is that even possible. I love you.

I'm a new member. The WECO welcoming club is awesome and helped me overcome extreme social phobia after being badly stalked, manipulated and abused...

I want to go in the forums, it's an important part of a community. But the registrations are closed. They really shouldn't be, I'm sure that many people are suffering by being left out.

I saw info about it months ago. It's taking too long.

If you can merge old registered accounts, you can merge new ones.

Please reopen the forum with a red note saying "Register using the same name and password to help the merging".

Torturing lonely people isn't necessary. Please stop it. I'm sure there's a better and easier way for you too.

Thank you for creating this wonderful site, I've been lurking for years, I like it better than MAL, and have been sending people here for years while making... stuff. Now that I finally found the courage to join the community and socialize, please don't keep the door locked.

i thought i explained it simply but nvm. so i go to your lists, for example OP characters and see a lot of anime but i scroll past them fast and nothing gets my interest. lets say i like horror stuff so it would be cool if i could click like in manga/anime part "more filters" and add "horror" and get those with horror tag in them shown. i hope i said it clearly now. its not an important function but it could be usefull sometimes

Awhile back I had someone recommend me to read Uzumaki, even though they knew it wasn't the type of Manga I would read, and now, even today, the name still comes back to me and all I can think of is Spirals

a new useful feature maybe: if we could search tags in a specific list, ex i saw your OP characters list but couldnt find animes that have specific content in them,so i could of missed someting interesting. just a suggestion :)
