Hi there, WhiteFire, and welcome to WikiFur! Thank you for your recent edits, especially those relating to the topic of Tapestries MUCK - we welcome the input of experts on such topics. Let me know if you need any help not already provided.

As I noted on Talk:The Astonishing Treehouse of the Secret Moon, and in reply to Talk:SCALF - you are perfectly free to edit articles in which you are involved, as long as you make a good faith effort to include the opinions of others as well. The trouble is usually that articles are written to include people's opinion as fact, rather than having facts about people's opinions - converting the former to the latter usually solves the problem. Uninvolved third parties often do not know what is fact and what is opinion, but hopefully you would have a better idea. This involves a certain amount of "writing for the enemy", but it is easier to do so once you realize you can represent their opinion accurately, even if you totally disagree with it. :-) --GreenReaper(talk) 18:58, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

Both pages got edits from me. I still disagree with the position the site takes on keeping such material, but, your baby, not mine. It's not like enough people don't disagree with me on what I do with my stuff. :P --WhiteFire
Thanks again. It's more than many would do. And yes, I'm sure you of all people know how the life of an admin goes. Don't think I didn't have my misgivings on starting this (particularly when Something Awful dropped by ;-). Still, somehow we manage to keep the drama to a low level while preserving information, and the end result tends to be an interesting and informative read for those who really want to know the fandom's history. I'll be the first to admit that it's not always easy getting there, but I think it's worth the effort. Ultimately the community is all about people; what they do and who they are is a key part of the story that WikiFur is trying to tell. --GreenReaper(talk) 22:55, 1 April 2007 (UTC)
