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.
