Biography – Amanda D.

Amanda D.


Amanda first started working for the site in 2000 when founder Suzanne split her TV site from and made it The TV MegaSite. Credited as co-founder because of all of her contributions during that time, Amanda has worked for the site off and on through the years, contributing links, photos, HTML work, FrontPage editing, transcripts, and tons of other stuff. A very creative and ambitious person, Amanda has produced many great ideas, including expanding the daytime section of the site with tons of links and adding many more shows. She donated her flourishing site, “Amanda’s Y&R Fan Page”, now the Y&R section, which has grown since then for the better. Amanda currently makes wallpapers for the site. She loves working for the site and is always adding more responsibilities or offering more helpful suggestions.

Amanda lives in Huntsville, Ontario (Canada). She stays close to home because she is epileptic, has social anxiety and takes care of a 4-bedroom house for her dad. Her dad and uncle live with her. Her dad is disabled, so she helps with the housework and general upkeep of the house. It’s a lot of work, but she enjoys it. She also enjoys taking care of her 18-year-old cat, Tigerlily (Tiger for short). Her father and uncle also live in the house with her. She loves watching, taping, and trading soaps and other TV shows; learning new computer software; spending time with her family; and working for The TV MegaSite, where she helps out whenever she can (mostly making wallpapers).

Amanda has a lot of medical issues, such as epilepsy, asthma, and residual schizophrenia.

Lately she’s been making Young & The Restless Wallpaper.

Biography – Akpene D.

Akpene D.


I started proofreading transcripts in January this year. I’m currently working on the Y&R archives, and I’m enjoying catching up on a lot of the stuff that happened a few years ago which I missed. I don’t get as much of a chance to watch the soaps these days, but I try and catch up when I can. My favorites are GH, Days & Y&R. Other favorite TV shows are Lost, House, MI5/Spooks, Moonlight and re-watching classic shows on “Hulu.”

I love reading and I occasionally find myself juggling two or three books at once! I’m always on the lookout for interesting authors and material. I recently got into J. D. Robb’s “In Death” series and I’m having a great time with those. Jane Austen and J. R. R. Tolkien are top favorites of mine.
