Sorry!

Hi ShakataGaNai. I am so sorry that I was mean in my comments about your Kindle pic. I am a big e-book reader and one of the common complaints was always how "ugly" the Kindle was. And most of the pics they would reference was the tannish colored pics like the one that you put on the Wikipedia article.

There were some unfortunate looking pics floating around on the net for a while and I thought that you pulled one of those. Not that your pic was ugly, it's just that the coloring was off and I was frustrated that there were no accurate pics regarding the color or actual use of it.--no sense of scale, etc. I actually LOVE the Kindle and was feeling defensive.

I certainly meant no offense and you are right, it wasn't a very nice thing for me to simply say "that pic was terrible" in the comment section. I'm a bit of a geek and had just come from some ebook forums that were trashing and hating on the Kindle. I think your pic would be fine if were just color adjusted to show how white the Kindle is. Rather than take a pic of my Kindle being held, I should have just gently asked you if I could color correct yours a bit.

Sorry again and thanks for letting me know what a butthead I was being. :)

Thanks, TSGreer

Why?

Why are you deleting the pages I have put on wikipedia? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Dragon star magic (talk • contribs) 2008-05-17T14:01:38 (UTC)

First off, please remember to sign your comments with --~~~~. Secondarily, I have no idea who you are. To my knowledge I've never deleted anything of yours on Commons or Wikipedia. In fact, I can't on either as I am not an admin. Third, why did you come over to commons to complain about what I do on Wikipedia? --ShakataGaNai Talk 19:20, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Adminship

You should request it. – Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 22:51, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

I appreciate your suggestion. I'll gladly accept nominations, but I'm hesitant to nom myself. It doesn't matter if _I_ think I should be an admin, its what the community thinks. But I take it as a super compliment. Thanks!--ShakataGaNai Talk 22:53, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

Yay!

A leper I am no longer! Thanks for the note!  :D Brynn 05:28, 30 May 2008 (UTC)
