Heya, my real name is Jane but everyone online calls me Jes ;)
Currently feeling rather ouclassed by all the talent here, as in Real Life I'm a just a lowly sys admin for a major utilities company in the UK, running (and testing upgrades/enhancements for) a 3,000 license project document management system. I do have a Comp Sci and Software Engineering BSc to my name, but my coding skills are more than a little rusty these days, and were never my true forte if I'm honest! I preferred to specialised in interface design and system useablity, HCI is one of the most fascinating branches of psychology if you ask me :)
I do, however, have a pretty fearsome reputation as a software tester with the providers of the system I run (plus ten years experience in writing test scripts and testing regimes - in their words, they call me in when they want something 'destruct tested'), plus a couple of minor experiences bug testing developments in a couple of online games, so hopefully that will be some use.
Why ECO? Well, I love multiplayer games, but whereas I'd prefer to just sit back and be a crafter of some kind, in most games you can't progress without getting involved in fighting, and I'm not much cop at that! So when ECO popped up in my FB feed, I pretty much decided there and then I had to give it a try! Plus I love the educational aspect of the game, too - hopefully it will get people thinking about how we treat our world.
