User:Avron the S'wit
|PLEASE NOTE: I am currently on leave/break as forum admin. I can still assist with forum issues or questions, but please do not expect a hasty response. Thank you!|
Salutations and tidings! I’m Avron the S'wit, moderator, admin, and Mama Bear of the UESP forums and humble supporter of the wiki. Chances are that if you came here you either know me from the forums, have a question about them, or you are dreadfully lost. If it’s the latter, don’t worry, I won’t be offended, and if it’s the former, then hello!
 About the S'wit
My name is not Arvel, nor am I swift.
While nowadays I am a common face on the forums, my first experience with UESP was actually on the wiki back when I first discovered Morrowind. As I became more enthralled with the game’s lore it became my go-to for information, and I still regard it as one of the greatest fan-made wikis on the web, which is precisely why I'm here today. Eventually I drifted toward the forums when I was looking for an easy discussion-based place to hang out and decided to sign up there toward the end of 2010. Since then it’s become my home away from home where I’ve made lots of good friends, had lots of great conversations, and remained to help contribute back to the community that so warmly welcomed me as one of its own.
Now my main goal is to make it a place where people want to stay and to have fun. I primarily serve the forums community but I'm interested in expanding the site as a whole, so feel free to drop me a line with any ideas or questions you may have!
Behind the computer screen I am a rather average geek girl named Amanda Rae who has lived all over the East Coast, is a fan of the arts, writing, and the great outdoors, has a horrible obsession with coffee and tea, and has started to play the ukulele, much to the dismay of my neighbors.
 Around the UESP
I do attempt to hang out in all areas of the site and brainstorm with all UESP users. Here's a few things I do and places that you'll find me:
 The Forums
As forum admin I spend most of my time here, where I'm in charge of implementing new features, welcoming new members, and leading the moderator team. I have served as a member, Tea Party Moderator, and Global Moderator before being appointed Forum Admin in 2012. Some of my accomplishments include organizing the forum staff, restarting the Competition of the Month, and creating various fun things for members to do - we have a group on Steam, a folding@home team, a Minecraft server, and a forum IRC channel, just to name a few.
 The Forums for Wiki Users
Any questions about the forum for users who are familiar with the wiki and its formatting can be directed to me. In addition, there is a forums wiki page that you may find informative! Please check it out. If there is anything you think would be an informative add, please let me know and I will gladly look into it. (It was also my first wiki page I created, so hopefully it is useful.)
 Social Media Pages
I help Dave with UESP's social media pages, helping with the upkeep of our Google+, Facebook, and Twitter pages and branching out to the TES community on those sites. Feel free to give me some feedback or get involved.
 Contact and Questions
If you feel the need to contact me for any reason whatsoever, you are more than welcome to! There are a few easy ways to do this.
- UESP Forums – Send me a PM; it’s the quickest way to get my attention.
- Wiki Talk Page – You can ask me questions, propose ideas for the forums or how we can work better with the wiki, or write me love sonnets here on my talk page. This way I can practice everything Kiz and AKB have taught me.
- Non-UESP links - The Moderators section of the Forum Rules has a short list of various ways to contact me or any of the other forum staff. Look under the section Contacting a Moderator.
And now for a delightful collection of commonly asked questions the s’wit receives.
