If you feel that I have reverted an edit or issued a warning in error, please click here and let me know. Even though I'm familiar with Wikipedia that doesn't mean I don't make mistakes, I do too. Everyone makes mistakes. So please don't interpret an error on my part as a personal attack on you. It's not, I promise. I ask you to simply bring it to my attention; I am always open to civil discussion (I will respond to you as soon as I can). Thank you. --Chamith (talk)

Sorry for my pastEdit

Hello, ChamithN. This is Akmaie Ajam, and i am returning to edit Wikipedia. (Sorry for bad English, my country i live in is Indonesia) Sorry for my past. In 2015 i wanted to edit DirectX. In that time i have little understanding that DirectX is not what needed to run Aero, little experience editing Wikipedia, and more. Sorry for vandalism.

Thanks.

Hello, ChamithN. Please check your email; you've got mail!
It may take a few minutes from the time the email is sent for it to show up in your inbox. You can remove this notice at any time by removing the {{You've got mail}} or {{ygm}} template.Sean1sposato (talk) 19:40, 20 November 2019 (UTC)
I'll reply to your E-mail here: Sorry, I'm gonna have to pass on that offer. I do not have a lot of free on time my hands these days to do a lot of editing. And I'm not sure if I want to edit just so that you could get paid for the work I do. On the other hand, you could post the edits you want to make on the talk page and use the template {{request edit}} so that other editors can review the changes before finalizing them. Even though editing is discouraged when there's a conflict of interest, you could collaborate with other editors and make sure the content you add is impartial. -- ChamithN (talk) 12:55, 23 November 2019 (UTC)

I figured out how to write to you via this talk page! But the email gets at the rest. --PaulThePony (talk) 11:20, 23 November 2019 (UTC)
Hi Paul, to reply to your email, I'm afraid the content you added was without verification and mostly WP:OR. I think other editors have explained in detail why you shouldn't add a lot of quotations to an article, which has to do with copyright issues among many others. Also, I'm not sure what you're referring to with "what was on the page prior to my edits there." Do you mean the long quotations that were already present in the article before you started editing? If so, I think that has already been taken care of by Diannaa and Freeknowledgecreator. -- ChamithN (talk) 13:02, 23 November 2019 (UTC)

Crew amt4586 preflight.jpg
