After a nearly a year of being banned from the community, denkimouse as decided to allow me to return on a trial basis. She will be watching me very carefully, as I know some of you older members will too! I am perfectly cool with that, as those of you that watch me will recognize that I have changed a lot over the last year. I don't expect you all to open your arms and accept me right away; however, I hope that in time I can become a respectable and contributing member of the community.
I was more interested in profiting off Pokemon fans than in Pokemon itself. Honestly, I just got to the point where I realized that Pokemon had become all about the money, and I finally decided that I wanted the innocence and joy of Pokemon brought back to me. I still browsed pkmncollectors, enjoying all of your collections.
If you would like to chat about the events in past, or would like to yell at me, or have a personal issue that was never addressed, please feel free to message me! Please use discretion when commenting, if you think what you are going to say will cause drama please PM me. I would really like to avoid creating any kind of grief for the mods, as they are very busy and I've already bugged them enough.
It took me a very long while to understand what exactly I had done wrong, and why everyone was so angry at me, but I finally do understand and feel awful about it all. I want to extend my apologies to the entire community for a number of things, and to anyone personal that was offended by me. I would like to personally apologize to Gin, who tries to see the best in everyone. I am also sorry to those of you that I argued with. You were only protecting the community from a potential threat and I hope you continue to do so!
I know it will take a long time to redeem myself, but I can hope to offer some neat contributions to the community to prove I am a team player. I am planning to post a few things in the next month:
- Guide to Paypal & Ebay disputes as well as your rights as a buyers/ sellers (this will help reduce your ability to be scammed out of money)
- The bootleg seller list I use to search ebay, as well as a tutorial on finding awesome deals on ebay. It will filter out all sellers that buy bootlegs wholesale, leaving you with some very good deals and cutting the number of results down.
- Guide for Smartphone (Iphone/Android/ect.) users to keep connected to pkmncollectors and be updated on items that they are looking for.
- Guide to USPS policies, insurance claims, delivery confirmation, ect.
entirelycliched, I know I fought with you often, but I just wanted to assure you that I have finally grown up and can't wait to prove it. Congrats on becoming a mod and also...Congratulations on your baby! You should get him/her a little piplup pajamma suit! :D.
I will be starting a Pikachu themed collection (and possibly moving on to Raichu, Emolga, and Pichu). I really would love to collect charms, but if I start I will need to finish it and I doubt that is possible or affordable!
I am very thankful to Pkmncollectors & Gin for giving me the opportunity to redeem myself and to enjoy collecting again!
