Hello, I'm Sannse Carter Cushway.
I'm occasionally asked about my name... it's pronounced somewhere between "san-seh" and "san-say". It's a nickname I've been using since about 2001, and one day I will make it my legal name. Of course, my mother will still call me by my birth name!
I used to live in a small town on the East coast of England, but have now moved to the wondrous land of San Francisco. I am part of Wikia's Community Support Team.
My Wikipedia user page is at Wikipedia:User:Sannse, I joined the project in December 2002 and was active there for several years. I'm also a big fan of Uncyclopedia, and have contributed several photoshopped images to the site.
Many of my blogs give advice about the problems that can crop up in communities. My goal is to help communities and individuals navigate these issues and, hopefully, to make Wikia a calmer and happier place.
Some of the blogs I have written are:
