I do a little bit of everything. There isn't a single thing or even a few things that I can claim I am the master of, but if you want fast general knowledge, I'm more than likely able to help out with that, and I encourage users to ask questions if they have them. The long row of userboxes will let you know what things I can help out with.
I am a Patroller, Mentor, and Blocker on the site, in terms of rank, so if you have a question about the site, I'll mentor you, and if there is vandalism, but no administrator on hand to block them, hit my talk page, and I'll get it taken care of.
I am also an author on UESP's blog(yes, we have a blog) and I write a weekly segment I call "Saturday with Snowmane", where you can find me discussing my opinions about games I'm playing or looking forward to, as well as rare thoughts about other topics.
My TES History
I started playing The Elder Scrolls with Morrowind, and I've easily clocked several thousand hours of play and a few hundred characters. While I can comfortably say that I've done most of what the game and the expansions have to offer. That said, I still completely adore the game, and I am constantly coming up with new play styles to test out.
In August 2011, I moved on to Oblivion, but the game wasn't the same as the alien world that I fell in love with, and after two or three vanilla playthroughs, I modded a TES game for the first time since starting the series almost three years before that. Now, I've got Oblivion modded to the point where I can't remember what's vamilla or modded. And, I think I need to make a reinstall and slowly re-add mods until I find out which one completely trashed the game. Needless to say, I've modded the game to the point where very little of it is still original, and that many mods makes the game completely unstable.
In December 2011, I joined the Skyrim craze, and while the game was fun for the first one or two hundred hours, I quickly found that the guild stories were weak, and except for random running around to examine the beautiful landscape, I've largely stopped playing the game, opting to wait until the buggy mess it fixed up, all available DLC is out, and there are cool user mods to use in order to freshen up the gameplay.
My last purchase in the TES series was in May 2012, when I purchased The Infernal City while I was on a long road trip across the country and I needed reading material to occupy my mind. It was a fantastic book, and I can't wait to get the sequel and read it. I only haven't yet because I haven't had the chance to go 45 minutes away to a bookstore.
