I'm an elected moderator on Mi Yodeya and The Workplace, and a pro-tempore mod here on Writers. 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.

comment Using ACM style, how do I cite an article without a specific author's name?
As noted in the question, the problem is tha the article doesn't have an author. So what does ACM call for doing in that case? N/A? _____? Unknown? Something else?

Could you say more about the tools you're recommending? Why are they good? How do they address the problem described in this question? We're looking for answers that answer the question rather than just links. Thanks.

comment Problems with posting work on the web for feedback
Nate, I've edited your question to make it a little more general; this isn't the only site that your concern would apply to, and this way it's clearly about writing sites and not just this one (which some might interpret as a policy discussion that belongs on meta). If my edit has changed your intent too much, please roll back or edit further. Thanks, and welcome to the site.
