PanHistoria Staff is a special crew of unpaid Volunteers who dedicate time and energy to helping Pan's members. There are three levels of staff and each has different areas of expertise. They are easily identified by the color icons next to their names on the IMPanel. Never hesitate to tap any of them on the shoulder for assistance or just to say Hello.
|Publishers: The Publishers are the owners of the site. They build the site, add new features and fix things that are broken. They answer questions and generally help out when they can. They can be identified by the red star next to their names.|
|Agents: Agents are site staff who fix things, answer questions, create novels, reference books, blogs and salons. They handle any disputes, infractions of the charter or complaints from members. They can be identified by a purple star next to their name on the IMPanel.|
|Editors: Editors are the people to contact if you are lost or confused and just generally need assistance. They help organize events, games, and contests, as well as produce content to keep things lively. They are identified by the green star next to their names.|

One of the voices of inspiration in the founding of Pan Historia, Fanny Fae / Sekhmet Meritamen is always willing to help a member. She quotes herself "I may seem like a big growly lioness but I can be bribed by profuse offerings of ginger beer!" She's always great to talk to, and a wonderful source of information on writing, film production, Ancient Egypt, as well as all periods of history and alternative medicine. Sekhmet is a huge part of the Pan Historia Community. Her other guises include Elizabeth I, Ninon de l'Enclos, and Caroline de Rochefort.
AKA: Pan Historia, Kemsit, Louisa Earp.
Kat Black is one of the publishers at Pan Historia. A lot of the original design work was hers (though so much has changed over time!) and she was part of the original planning with Wyatt Earp, Merlin, and Sekhmet Meritamen. Because of real life commitments like being a mom, having a career, and that sort of thing Kat hasn’t had the same time to put into Pan Historia that she would like but she still comes online to help out, do a little writing, and works behind the scenes trekking to the post office and doing some bookkeeping because Wyatt hates that stuff. She generally divides her time between Pan Historia or Panerotica, where ever she’s needed or there is a good conversation going.
AKA: Wyatt, Tjeti Priest, Red King, Utah, The Lord of Multitasking.
Wyatt Earp is one of the original founders of Pan Historia. To this day, he maintains a steady presence on the site - always looking for ways to improve Pan Historia and ways to keep it running. He is a jack-of-all-trades on the site and in real life, working as a web designer, community consultant, PHP programmer, and still finding time to write fiction and produce a little art. These days, most of his energy is devoted to the nuts and bolts of community site building, including introducing new sites for the business.
Wyatt's writing and RP interests at Pan Historia include westerns, Ancient Egypt, horror, and science fiction. He actively participates in a number of novels and reference books, and believes in being a hands-on kind of guy.

Having found Ancient Sites and the SciFiVine by surfing around the net
one day over four years ago, I instantly became hooked. I have written
stories since I was a child, but had never seen interactive writing communities before, and it was both an amazing and enchanting discovery. I've been involved with writing groups ever since, helping to move our stories and communities to Community Zero (CZ) after the demise of CyberSites, and now to Pan. In so many ways, finding Pan was like coming home.
Since becoming a part of the staff, I have found several ways to make
myself useful. Under the name Djinni, I am the genre's Genie Coordinator,
or self styled Sultana. I help to organize the genres, contests, and Genies, as well as handle novel creations and deletions. Of course, there are also a million other little jobs that find their way into my bottle!
However, I also find many ways to play on Pan! You can find me in many
different stories on Pan, from historical fiction, to horror and gothic
fiction, to fantasy, to science fiction, to the Pan Historian newspaper.
I also belong to several reference books, like the Copper Pot and ACME,
among others. A self taught HTML nut, I try to make my posts as beautiful
to the eye as I hope they are to the mind.
Of course, I do have a few hobbies outside of Pan, including beadwork
and making jewelry. I also like to weave, but my loom has gotten pretty
dusty. (My computer keys, on the other hand, are so well polished that
the letters are rubbing off from all the use it gets LOL). I also go to
Renaissance Faires, and music festivals.
However, my first love was writing, and I feel blessed to be a part of
this community, and having the opportunity to meet and write with all
of the wonderful people here at Pan. *smiles*
AKA: Tancorix, Althaea.
Sam was a member of the somewhat odd Service family from the old Readers' Vine. With the demise of that, and of AS, I was sent seeking a new site to play on. Thankfully I did not have to wait too long to be admitted to the fledgling PH and I have been very pleased to watch it grow into the great place it is now.
The thing that I really enjoy is the open discussion of history. One may find my characters posting on various things in the Reference Books here at PH. Many of those things I knew absolutely nothing about until someone's post piqued my curiosity and I went looking for information, *L* I think this ongoing curiosity is what keeps me somewhat sane, either that or it will be the death of me!
As Sam I have been devoting my time at PH to Reference Books dealing with the natural environment. This is not an accident, I just adore camping, hiking and gardening, *S* For employment I devote my time to creating an unnatural environment, I work at an ice rink/community centre, and yes, I do drive the Ice Resurfacer, *grin* Just call me "The Olympia Babe"!

An avid reader, I always like to say that books like me so much they follow me home. *LOL* Writing on the other hand was something I did much more rarely. But that changed once I discovered Pan Historia. No longer writing things for school or work but for my own fun, I could do so interactively and this has turned into a great source of fun.
The community that is Pan has turned into something very special to me and I am happy to try to give back to it something of the happiness and friendship I receive.

Pan Historia is my first experience with Role Play. I have always considered myself a fair writer: song lyrics, poetry, short stories and novels, anything that allows my alter ego life. When I came to PH in Fall-2003 I was amazed to find so many wonderful folks; writers, like me, who enjoyed writing as much as I did. Now Pan Historia is my home away from home. I dare not imagine my life without it.
In Real Life? I am a Technical Director/Stage Manager and a musician, a singer to be exact. I have a vocal degree from UCSB (Santa Barbara) and an MFA in Technical Theatre from UT, Austin. Currently I reside in the CA and live without a script! I teach stage voice, Women's rock & roll history, and co-run a theater, and when RL gives me a break, I’m here at PAN where 'fantasy life' is always good!
I love everything about PAN: Novels and Reference Books, of which I am involved in several; I love helping folks out and, well, just being an all-around friendly kinda gal. I’m also a great sounding board if you have anything that needs venting... I love working on HOMES and helping out with what HTML skills I possess. If you see me, or any of my incarnations, give me a tap. Would love to meet you.

I found Pan through one of our sister sites, Bardic Web, where I'm a Founding Member, and have been writing since the old Sci-Fi Vine days. I like to do graphics in my spare time, if you're wanting examples of my work, check out Rayne's gallery through Whislyn Signature Services at Bardic Web.
I love to write, and I tend to be attached to my characters. If a storyline grabs me, I dive right in. I have a wide variety of interests, both in reading and in writing. I also have a B.A. in History, so yes, I am a nerd.
I can be found in Horror (at the Zone, in Turnskin and in 666 West End Avenue),Contemporary (also in the Zone and in Wyldwood and Jackson Square), in History (in the Zone, Ile de Torture, and Les Deux Comtesses), in Action (Survivor! Pan Historia, The Relic Hunters, Action Files and Zone: Action), as well as Fantasy (Hogwarts, The Crossroads and the Zone), Westerns (Deadwood and the Zone) and Other (The Diogenes Club, Whispers in Time, Bardic Web Refugee Camp and Short Cuts).
I am generally online most of the day, but I am a stay at home mom, so I do get distracted from time to time by my children or other domestic duties. But I'm happy to help when I can, so don't be afraid to poke at me!

Many years ago I began my online creative writing endeavors as Adrasteia Hatshepsut at AncientSites, a very active virtual community focusing on ancient history. I was, and still am, quite in love with ancient Egypt as well as having a great fondness for many eras of history. After Pan Historia was created I found myself distracted by the excitement of flowering youth and explored beyond the virtual world for a spell. In 2006 on a whim I returned to Pan's doors to glean what might be seen and reconnect with old friends, which rekindled my passion for creative writing, design and virtual community and I've been here ever since.
Within our virtual halls I am active in a few novels spread out over the Horror, Fantasy, History and Westerns genres along with my duties as an Agent which is focused on assisting the site and membership with coding and design. Throughout my tenure I've become mildly competent in web design including HTML, CSS, JAVA, PHP and graphic art - at least enough to be somewhat useful despite myself!
Offsite, I follow my passion for childbirth as a doula and childbirth educator. My household is comprised of a wonderful husband, our young spirited daughter, my husband's older son and a small pride of domestic felines. Previous to birthwork, I was in non-profit administration in the pet-related field.
AKA: Alais, Constance Russell, Kayleia.
Another refugee from AS, I wandered cyberspace looking for a home when AS went down. Rarely at AS did I role play; I thought of myself as a historian. I always knew I was a good writer, but thought of myself as a writer of non fiction—specifically history. Then an online friend asked me to help out in Athens which was on the verge of being eliminated; suddenly I was writing and loving it. Now with the confidence that Pan Historia has given me, I am venturing into other genres.
To pay the bills I
once tortured children( whoops) I taught, but have since retired after spending my life explaining history to and geography to 13 year olds. I now spend my time here at Pan, taking some courses and doing free lance historical research on old homes and the families who lived in them. I am sure I can help people here at Pan solve their problems or at least point them to where they can get help.
Until recently, I resided near the sea in New England, I have now moved further south, but am still only minutes from the beach. When not online at Pan, I enjoy reading, writing and researching history and being with friends and family.
Please say hello if you see me online—and feel free to ask any questions you have about Pan Historia.

I have been creatively writing for a while. I have been lucky to be friends with Wyatt and familiar with Pan for a good deal of time . I love coming up with character and story ideas. My interests lie in Historical, Science Fiction, Fantasy and Mystery Genres for both reading and writing. In my writing is where my alter egos come out to play.
When not at Pan, you can find me out on the golf course, at the gym, the movies or in front of the TV during football season. I have to admit ESPN is on a lot in this house. Almost forgot, I have a habit for spending rainy days playing on the PS2 trying to beat the pants off my wonderful partner.

Originally I came to Pan Historia to fill the Tenth Muse with my poetry. Poetry was my main form of expression. I have made several attempts into the prose word of Role-Play Writing, trying several genres along the way. Through that I have discovered that I wish mostly to write Post Humanism, which satisfies my general tendencies towards “orderly rebellion”. Yeah, that’s me, the one who is out there in the rain with a towel, trying to straighten up the chaos. Sure, I get wet, but what the heck, it’s the effort right?
I am in love with language and word art, the subtle ways that words can inflict emotions and thoughts, the power of thinking out what we take for granted, and seeing if there might not be other ways to achieve ends. Leonard Cohen, in his song “Suzanne” said that there are flowers in the garbage… and I’m here to remind you… oops, that’s Alanis…
At Pan Historia I tend towards the discussions, and the Blogs. It seems that I am ever ready to offer an opinion as well as a sympathetic ear. I like to think that I have a sense of humor, even if quirky, and that I am fun to know.
fact : It is not the end of the journey that is the fun part, but the getting there.

I started out on the internet with webtv, at that time webtv did not have cut and paste....GRrrr...I would sit really, really close to the TV , with pencil and paper in hand, and copy the html tags to paper, then type line after line onto the tv monitor. God forbid I make one little mistake, (S) if I did I would have to start all over again. not an easy task for a welder, with big hands and who types with one finger...(Grins)
The first place I role played was called Firefly, it bit the dust after a take over from Yahoo. I next found the Vines, Western, Music and Scifi among others, that's how I found Ancent Sites. After Ancent Sites' demise, it was time to move again.
Along with Destiny, RavenWolf, Calliope and a few others, we moved over to Community Zero, until they started rebuilding. From then on, I started playing more and more at Pan Historia
I was first invited to join Pan Historia while it was still in beta form, and I've been happy I did ever since.

I've been logging on to Pan Historia nearly every day since early 2003. Started as a pirate writing in the History Genre, branched out to Westerns and a few other genres.
Off Pan, when I'm not toiling away in my day job as an engineer for a defense contractor, I write short stories, have had a few published, and am always working on new stories and sending them out to various markets.
I'm currently Genre Editor for Romance and Westerns, so if you need assistance with any of those genres, just tap me. I can help with questions of HTML or graphics for homes, posts and dust jackets, or anything else about the site. I'm also happy to just chat, so if you see me or any of my alter-egos on the panel, don't be shy, shoot me a gram.

I found Pan by chance in a Google images search in 2004, and it has remained a constant amidst the vagaries of my life since! I was instantly drawn by the historical genres and the character-driven storytelling – I had never experienced any sort of role play before, but I was lucky to find a niche that fit me perfectly. I am a compulsive writer, and fuss to an obsessive degree over my characters. The History genre remains my first love, but I’ve branched out into Horror, Fantasy, Contemporary and Westerns. I like to consider myself a versatile writer, and enjoy tackling new challenges with my stories.
I’m a designer by trade, so I’ve always dabbled in graphics and webdesign at Pan. My duties as editor include site graphics, but I love to help anyone out with questions about Dust Jackets and Homes. So if you find yourself overwhelmed, don’t be afraid to tap me on the shoulder! I try to overcome the limitations of my peculiar time zone as best as I can. *grins*

I first began collaborative writing many years ago on AncientWorlds before e-migrating to Pan Historia in 2004 as one of the first new recruits after *THE CRASH*. That was when I met, on this very site, the woman who is now my wife!
In my time with Pan, I have been involved in novels in Fantasy, Science Fiction, Horror, Contemporary, and the so-aptly named "Other" genres. In 2012 I became the first challenger to become an Iron Writer, and it has been a crazy, amazing adventure!
I currently reside on the Jicarilla Apache Reservation in New Mexico, reportedly the site of many alien visitations! Outside of Pan, I am working on finishing my degree while working toward my goal of becoming a published author.
Please feel free to poke me with any questions about the site, writing, HTML, or CSS. I'm always happy to help!

You might call me the "Once and Future Editor." It was my pleasure to be an Editor and Genie here at PanHistoria for quite a few years. But life got a bit insane and I had to take a "Panhistoria break.." I never stopped writing though and now that some of the chaos has sorted out, I am happy to be back here among friends doing something I love.
