Having joined the Kindle Boards in less than a week, I have yet not understood what a Kindle Enabler is. I think I have a hunch, but rather than me trying to explain what I think one is, how about you guys tell me? :D

Enablers are people who like an accessory so much that their enthusiasm sells other people on that accessory.

People who make you buy things, especially accessories, for your Kindle.  They got me, too, and I never understood why I wanted a skin or anything other than the $30 amazon cover.  Now I see a naked Kindle and it just doesn't seem right and I love my Oberon cover ><

That being said... you should really look into getting an Oberon cover and a nice decalgirls skin!  You can check out a lot of pictures in the accessories thread of what different people have gotten.

Well, technically I don't think anyone here pulled your Visa out of your wallet & sent the order in on your behalf....... :D

And we enable everything, not just Kindles. That's how Leslie ended up with a new KitchenAid stand mixer, and I see people buying multiple tea makers on the tea thread!

But yes, the definition is roughly correct. We're the nuts who can tell you just about anything you need to know about almost every Kindle accessory out there. If it's for sale for the Kindle, someone on this board has likely tried it. Most of us are passionate about skins & covers, but heck, I love my Mighty Bright light & Peeramid Pillow almost as much. LOL

Oberon has really nice covers, but they just aren't "me." I'm waiting for my DX, and probably will be getting quite a few Decal Girl skins. I'm really excited. :D I'm debating on whether or not I want to get an M-Edge cover. Does anyone know if the hinges are metal?

The M-Edge DX covers listed at this time don't have the hinges (so far as I can find on Amazon, anyway). The Amazon cover does, and since the ones for the K2 are metal, I can't imagine they wouldn't do the same for the much bigger, much heavier DX.

I'd imagine that if/when M-Edge brings out a Prodigy or Go version for the DX, it will have metal hinges as well, but those don't appear to be available for preorder yet. At least in a quick look under DX accessories.

I ended up with a Wii and a couple of fitness games because of a thread here. And I love it. Never had a "gaming console" before.

It sounds like you could be a perfect enabler. You have multiples that definitely shows potential!

Make is such a strong word. My feelings are, we point out all the advatages of an item, therfore allowing you an enformed decision. Sometimes it takes four or five of us pointing out different things to get you to see things our way the right way, but I don't feel we make you buy anything. ;)

Oh yeah, and books. :)

Okay, you guys have enabled me to want an Oberon cover, a K2, a DecalGirl skin, and lots and lots of books. After much counting of pennies and loose change, I finally have enough to buy the Kindle. I am placing my K2 order today or tomorrow. Next the cover and the skin and then all those wonderful books. Go enablers! You do good work. I suppose after my stuff arrives, I will be one of you.

Come to the rice cooker thread in the Not Quite Kindle forum, you will see a perfect example there LOL
Yes, I succumbed to that one, too! LOL

Last night I dreamed about a red Gingko Oberon cover for my Kindle DX that is arriving next week. I dreamed about it! Talk about drinking the kool-aid around this joint... ;D ;D
