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

I joined Stack Exchange so I could commit to the proposal for Mi Yodeya. I ask lots of questions to learn from the many knowledgeable Yodeyans. My answers tend to be to practical "Jewish life" questions.

Professionally, I'm a technical writer who works with (and often helps design) programming interfaces. I'd love to see more tech-writing questions on Writers.SE.

If you are a Jew and considering participating on the Biblical Hermeneutics SE site, I urge you to consider these words from someone who went down that path. They want Jews to help out on their site, but they don't want to rein in the Christian evangelism so we'll feel welcome. That's at best distasteful. Proceed with caution, and ideally consult your rabbi first. (More info on our meta.) See also: Working with idolaters, infidels, and the impious: can interfaith discourse work?

comment How to deal with an online griefer that I know in real life?
Oh, can you do that with Minecraft servers? That is, can you drop a runnable dump from one server onto another? And is it obvious that he's alone on the server? (I know nothing about Minecraft, in case you hadn't worked that out by now. :-) )

comment how do i make scenes more extreme and exciting?
Welcome to Writers. Sorry, but this is too broad as it stands. If you can [edit] it to describe your problem in more detail, including what you've tried and what was unsatisfying about it, we can look at reopening. Please check out our short [tour]; it explains more about the site. Thanks.

@Rodrigo welcome to WorldBuilding. Please [edit] into the question any constraints on timeframe and collateral damage (e.g. do we need to protect animals? The planet?) into the question. Thanks.

comment How to leave a job?
That sounds like an unpleasant situation. I agree with the other commenters, though; it's not very clear what your actual question is. I'm putting this on hold temporarily; please [edit] to clarify what the question is, and that will automatically put the question into the review queue for possible reopening. Thanks.

comment Cultural clash in the office - artists and engineer struggling to understand each other
I have seen programs of "spend a day or two shadowing someone in a different discipline" work well. You can't actually do the other person's job just as he can't do yours, but seeing it first-hand instead of just talking about it can be pretty eye-opening, if companies are willing to do it.

comment May I exchange leave for money
Welcome to The Workplace. We can't answer questions about laws (depends on where you live, and we're not lawyers) or about the policies of a particular company. However, if you were to ask instead how you can go about making this request (how to pitch it, etc), that would be on-topic for us. When you [edit] your question it will automatically be put in the review queue for possible reopening. Thanks.

comment What's the most logical shape for my city in space (space station)?
@superluminary artificial gravity would be needed, yes. I"m looking for things we have the knowledge to build today; I know we can get gravity from spinning, but if there's some other way to do it with today's knowledge, an answer based on that would be just fine.

comment Is it legal for a job interviewer to ask if I'm married, and how do I deal with it?
@stackoverflowuser2010 the part that's not off-topic is a duplicate (handling inappropriate questions). "Is it legal?" is off-topic here; that's highly dependent on locale and anyway we are not lawyers. Also, remember that we expect comments (and posts) here to maintain a professional tone.
