I'm a British researcher, born and bred in Solihull, which is approximately in the centre of England. My previous involvement in the site began on October 11th, 2001 (I didn't really get involved with the site at all, and stopped coming after a while), but I'm back now and my proper involvement began when I rejoined h2g2 on September 13th, 2002! So I've now been an active Researcher for more than 5 years - go me!
In July 2008 I graduated from the University of York with a degree in history. Many of my entries are on historical subjects, as you'll see if you click that 'My Entries' link up there.
Here on h2g2, I'm involved in a few things, such as Peer Review, but I also have the following roles:
I'm a h2g2 ACE - my fellow ACEs and I welcome new researchers and are happy to help if you have any questions or need help. For more information visit the ACE home page.
I'm also a h2g2 Photographer, meaning I've provided photos to illustrate some edited entries.
I am Chief Of Staff to Vice President of h2g2 Jodan; visit the h2g2 Government, led by President Hypatia (democratically elected and everything) at The Alabaster House and get your own position of power.
I am also Keeper of the Master Plan. Fancy your own title? Why don't you join the Keepers?
I am Goddess of Ulterior Motives at Mount Olympus but the other Gods and myself can be found in The Pantheon there. And the Goddess spoke unto the reader: "Be nice to me, lest I smite you." (The Book of Elentari, 1st Commandment).
I'm a Thursdayite - join the campaign against the Thingites to keep Thursday called Thursday!
Furthermore, I'm a member of The Royal H2G2 Historian's Society.

"Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, 'I will try again tomorrow.'"- Mary Anne Rademacher-Hershey.
"If you have made mistakes, even serious ones, there is always another chance for you. What we call failure is not the falling down, but the staying down."- Mary Pickford.
P.S. Many thanks to everyone I've taken Guide ML from, especially when I didn't ask permission. Your sacrifice is appreciated.
