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...

Well you grew up on Ultima on the Atari I grew up on it with the old 7.25in floppy disc version Ultima 2; I still have my cloth map that looks like the World XD  I liked ascension to a degree, but 7 was ok.  Now as for UO being a bastard child I could cry when you say that, because its true since EA took over rights from Garriot and made it into a mmorpg version of Diablo II.  I played UO since 2nd beta back in 98 and still have my account, but I play on a free shard now.  I feel I don't need to pay 10.99 a month to play something I can build and create on my own (yet I do sadly), although coding in C# sucks.  Needless to say I appreciate the comment, and I'm pretty impressed with the site.

Ok what gives? I think I tryed about twice in the month to talk to you but you seem to be not there or you are mad at me or something.

Is it because of the posts I have been doing? If it is I will stop causing a fuss. I don't mean to make people mad at me I just want them to be informed.

Tell me you are still alive.

Am gagging for another one though! every year since i turned 18 (can you say teenage rebellion anyone?) i buy myself a tatoo or piercing for my birthday but this year i just couldn't decide what tohave done.

FYI - when will you be adding new spam filters? Maybe you could get the site members to drum up some potential questions? Maybe even throw in a red herring or two? just as s conversation piece ofcourse, not to confuse the users for their own amusement... e.g. Will you take the blue pill or the red pill?
