I know quite a bit about cars and machines in general,
I know quite a bit about being poor and eating bad food,
I was a soldier once, so I know some stuff about that,
I know a little bit about words and what they look like when glued together.
I know some stuff about writing,
I have a large amount of free time,
I like learning new stuff,

I don't actually have any marketable skills. I do want learn new skills though and I do seem to sort of understand writing and people. So, if people need help with anything and the patience to teach me as I go along, I am more than willing to help. I'm always available to talk about writing and the multitude of subjects that come with that as I do know a wee bit about it.

I can and will proofread, as long as you expect a frank response. I like doing it, keeps my editorial skills sharp.

Misc other stuff.
Bitch! I eat people.

I don't really have any skills...

I'm a student nurse and have been a first aider for the best part of 10 years.
I'm training to be an advocate for people with learning disabilities and mental health issues.
I like learning new things, always involved in training of some kind and I like helping new people understand things.

Like I said, it's not much but there we go.

It's remarkable to me, how many of the following skills I learned first and/or mostly in the VE.  Like, this place has helped me build the skill set that I use irl.


1.) Trained as an actor.  This is relevant, only insofar as it explains why I like multi-faceted characters with understandable motivations, and flaws.

2.) Trained as a Peer Specialist in Behavioral Health.  In other words, I have some training as a counselor, or therapist.  Relevant only insofar as it explains my interest in interpersonal communications.

3.) Writing.  I initially sought out the VE because I was looking for a Writers' Group, and I thought the DJO especially would be a good fit.  Since then, I've written more than 200 story posts for this site (and the EE, the past couple years), and completely one self-contained long-form piece, for the DJO.  Over the 5 years of Star Wars writing, I think I've learned quite a lot.

4.) Role-playing.  I had very limited experience with role-playing games, before joining.  I've read several different manuals, books, and guides, now, for various different role-playing games/systems (Star Wars D6, D&D 4E, Pathfinder, etc.).  In trying to understand why people seek out and play rpgs (so I could help the VE cater to those people better), I've learned a lot.

5.) Star Wars.  In 5 years, I've visited Wookiepedia more than almost any site.  I've probably opened it more often that Wikipedia.  As first the Chief of Naval Training (in charge of the VEN's academy), then Chief of Naval Warfare (basically the overall Dungeon Master or Game Master, for the VEN), then Chief of Naval Operations (in charge of the day-to-day operations of the VEN, and making sure all the parts function together as a seamless whole), I've learned a LOT about Star Wars.  I've built up a huge collection of reference materials, both physical books and pdfs.  And I've made a particular study of the new, Disney-ratified canon.

6.) Graphic design.  My skills are fairly narrow, but deep.  Specifically, I'm a fair hand with Photoshop, for photo manipulation or digital collage.  I've also forged relationships with a few different digital artists, over the years, who have given me their permission to use their Star Wars art for the VE/EE (oftentimes, they only want to be credited somewhere, in return).

7.) Video.  About 10 months ago, I wanted to teach myself how to make youtube videos.  I scoured the internet for Star Wars clips, taught myself how to use Adobe After Effects, and used the latter to edit together all of the former.  Is that the best or most efficient way to make videos?  No!  But the results were ok, for a first attempt, and I'm confident I could do even better next time.  Link here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C9p0HIuyIZs

Figure I'll just chime in too regardless of what my schedule ultimately looks like.

I am currently working as a graphic designer and am just now getting some rl experience.

Design/Programming
Illustrator
Photoshop
Indesign (very basics, not exactly a preferred app...)
Some HTML
Some CSS
Some JavaScript
Some Java
Basic video editing
Photography

Game Design
Unity
Some 3DS Max
Basic Photoshop painting
Some JavaScript


I'm sure there's something I forgot to list because I relegated it to non-related or unimportant in my mind, lol. I'm just now entering the work world, so my skillset will be expanding through the next couple years.

I'm an absolute luddite so thought I'd post just in case. Zero experience with web design, absolutely shite with technology so I can't contribute on that front.

I studied English/History so I'm quite good at proof reading and writing. Not sure that's much use considering the calibre of writing I've seen so far on the site!

I was a reservist for a couple of years so I know a little bit of military stuff . Nothing exciting, I was with Logistics. 

I'm an avid mountaineer, I love the outdoors, so I know wilderness stuff fairly well.

I'm good with languages too (English, Irish, Polish, German) so anything linguistics related, I might be of help.

Here are mine. Like with Trick, anything remotely useful was mostly learned here. And unlike most of the above I've got little to no skill in graphic or game design.

1) Wiki coding. Specifically, the wiki system that the Vast Empire uses. I can put together pages, tables, templates, and almost anything else you'd care to see. And if you need something that I don't know how to do on there, I'll most likely be able to teach myself and get it done for you inside of a week.

2) Forum design. I've created, or been part of the management team for, a number of different forums over the years. I'm not an expert on the deeper back-end stuff, though learning that is a goal of mine. But putting together forums and sub-forums and managing permissions, etc is something I can do quite well.

3) Finances. It's relatively unnecessary here with Kadann be awesome enough to cover the costs, but hey. I'm an accountant and have/do act as the treasurer of several different clubs and other groups.

4) Organization/data management. I love constructing systems for gathering/recording information, as well as helping to develop structure for organizations.

5) Troubleshooting. I can often develop alternative courses of action easily and I get a kick out of helping someone see a new way to approach a problem. From reworking a story post that got stuck somehow to finding a way to reconcile posts that at first contradicted each other to finding a compromise between two organizational stances that are having difficulty finding resolution, etc.

6) And, like Trick, I'm something of a walking encyclopedia of almost all things Star Wars.

Taken aside, I am a software engineer and educated for Security and Privacy, Digital Forensics.

1.  Programming / Software Development: C/C++, Perl, Python, C#, Java, Javascript, php, Bash; can easily learn more

2.  Databases: Oracle DB, MySQL; hardly a DB architect

3.  Network and computer infrastructure

4.  Plethora of computer security (hardware, software, usability) and digital forensics techniques.
