On Fanlore: My contributions / email me

Former member of the Comics Fandom from 1996-2002, with a background in research (I work as a legal assistant/law clerk) and a desire not to let things disappear. I have a tendency to forget to leave notes on things, so poke me if that's needed.

Currently I'm one of the modteam for X-Project and maintainer of the XP Wiki, so I know a fair bit of wiki coding already. I'm also taking note of some new tricks I learn here to bring back with me!

I'm crazy retentive about sorting things, so you'll see great swathes of category adding/amending from me as I go through various categories "cleaning up" the various contents. I occasionally get carried away and forget to explain my logic for certain decisions - please feel free to email me if there's something you don't understand (I react better to private pings than public call-outs) and I'll be happy to explain/discuss. I'm currently in the middle of sorting the contents of the year categories into relevant sub-categories, as well as the same for the Star Trek category. I also check the Orphaned Pages, Uncategorized Files and Uncategorized Pages/Dead End Pages links daily to avoid stuff piling up, plus certain Special Pages items like red-linked categories and unused files. It fills the days when I don't have a lot of work to do!
