Cool Man Eddie says Sweet! mauler just awarded you a Thousand-Pointed Star, because fixing A Thousand Points of Light!

I still have the nice little nodeshell challenge going on. I'm sorry I was away so long. I missed you all, so I will pop back in more frequently. I appear to be back.

e-mail is my username at protonmail dot com. You can also get me on Signal Messenger — ask me how.

I am


I'm also opinionated.

New to E2? Instant advice:
  • Spend a day reading around before you post anything.
  • Read at least one FAQ. My initial suggestion is Everything2 Help, and Everything2 FAQ.
  • Understand that three things a writeup needs, beyond mere words, are:
    1. Formatting - at least use <p> for paragraph breaks
    2. Hard links - [ and ] around anything you want to link to
    3. Soft Links - created by either clicking through hard links, or using "Search"
    4. Good spelling and grammar
    Okay, there were four things...
  • Use drafts and do not be afraid to ask for advice.
  • Get help - anyone with a $ or @ against their name will assist
  • At a loss for a topic? See Everything's Most Wanted, wertperch's nodeshell challenge or jessicapierce's scratchpad
  • Feedback is intended to help you to improve both in your writing and in understanding E2. Behaviour breeds behaviour - if you respond to feedback with hostility you will be met with hostility, but if you respond with appreciation, you will get a better response in the future.
  • Have fun!
