The "I'll make you famous" Award
Awarded for steadfast opposition to pressuring of editors by threats of supposedly adverse publicity.
Historical notes
(1) There's no evidence that William H. Bonney (pictured) ever told anyone that he'd make them famous - as a threat, euphemism or otherwise - but his character does so in the film Young Guns II.
(2) The last time this award was bestowed was in 2011 to User:ErrantX.
--Demiurge1000 [17] (22 November 2012)

The Anti-Vandalism Barnstar
Did I ever give you a barnstar for reverting vandalism on my user pages? You did that several times already, sometimes when I was offline, sometimes when you beat me to the revert. No good deed should ever go without reward, whether it be today or tomorrow or in a thousand years... but I don't think either of us would still be around in 1000 years unless we were preserved the same way the Egyptians preserved their pharaohs. But if Wikipedia is still around 1000 years from now, I hope this barnstar is too!
Again, thanks for helping me chase the vandals out of my userspace.
