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...

thanks for the warm welcome , its nice to find a website with a community this strong . I've been thinking about writing some recommendations but i'm a little self-conscious as far as my writing skills go .

 anyways , thanks for the welcome and thanks for creating this awesome website

Oh, no problem. I'm sorry if I sounded impolite. I thought that maybe there is a bug that does not allow you to see my rec. Sorry for your staff shortage.

Thanks.

Hi sothis, I'm wondering why does it take about more then a week now to check and put up my Shakugan no Shana - Kaze no Stigma rec.. And also there is this strange bug, while logged off I see different kinds of recs for anime then when I'm logged in. (For example, show "A" and show "B", if I'm logged in I don't see any recs between then two, if I'm not, I see A>B rec)

Thanks for the comment! lol, and  for reminding me about this site! I had signed up before I had to work one night and I ended up forgetting to come back since I work and sleep alot. I'm definitely gonna build my anime list here too. I've also made one at anidb.net before i found out about this place. I have the day off today so I think I'll start up now.

Just watch, by tomorrow I'll be done. hehe
