I'm an elected moderator on Mi Yodeya and The Workplace, and a pro-tempore mod here on Writers and on WorldBuilding. I'm pretty active on the SE network.

Professionally, I'm a technical writer who works with (and often helps design) programming interfaces. I've written programming guides, tutorials, reference applications (runnable examples), reference documentation (for Java, C++, C, SOAP, and REST APIs), and even a little user documentation. I'd love to see more technical-writing questions here on Writers!

A word of warning: if you are interested in the Biblical Hermeneutics site, I urge you to consider these words from a non-Christian who went down that path. They want people to help build their site (which they say is non-religious), but they allow Christian evangelism and presumption, quite a bit of it. Learn from another's mistake. See also: Working with idolaters, infidels, and the impious: can interfaith discourse work?

comment Is it correct to use acronyms in a bio or should I omit it?
Eduardo, I've made a major edit to your question to try to make it fit our site. You've been editing your sample text, but as I said before we don't do critiques of writing samples. I took the question in your title and the kinds of edits you've made as guidance. Please take a look, and if you're ok with this edit I'll reopen the question. Just leave me a comment. Thanks.

Hello and welcome to Writers. "Please critique my writing" questions are off-topic here, sorry. Please check out the link in the notice above and our short tour for more about the kinds of questions that are on-topic here. Thanks.

comment Potentially risky subject in my script
First, whether you should do this depends very much on what you are trying to accomplish with your story, which you haven't stated (at least in the post; I didn't read all the comments). Second, I agree with Neil: this is very close to brainstorming or a discussion question; please check out our tour and then edit this to better align with site scope. Thank you.

comment Offline Tool for finding identical/similar phrases in a text?
Thanks for this information (and for being clear about your relationship to the product). Does it allow you to add to the dictionary of cliches too? If I know that I have a bad habit of using a certain expression that isn't one of the 7000 it already detects, can I add that?

comment How do I build a better blog website?
This is pretty broad as written, and sounds like you're asking for a critique of your blog. Could you please edit to describe what you've done and what you think could be improved about it? Try to be more specific -- are your questions about styling, tagging, length of posts, how you manage comments, promotion, or what? I'm putting this on hold for now; after you edit it will go into a review queue for reopening.

comment Character in Macbeth that maintains integrity in position of power?
Hi Zander and welcome to Writers. As Lauren said, we're a Q&A site about writing, not about literary analysis or what to write. Once you figure out what you want to write about please do bring your questions about how to do it here. Please check out our short tour for an overview of how the site works. Thanks for understanding.
