What I write aboutEdit

I tend to work on Twin Cities or Vassar College-related things. I'm a stickler for italics. I like finding or making photos/graphics for articles without them. On occasion, I'll get an article up to GA quality. I do Wikipedia because it's a lot of fun. Real-life people I know include Littlebird Photography and Absternr.

DYKs and GAsEdit

For other non-DYK articles, see this page.

Assisted articlesEdit

Here's a list of articles that I've helped make DYK-eligible.

To doEdit


  The DYK Medal
For helping to make the DYK section a truly wonderful experience, and for encouraging WP editors in their efforts. Ecoleetage (talk) 23:31, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

To Bobamnertiopsis, for outstanding main page preparation, comments, oversight and editing Minneapolis, Minnesota. Happy 150th anniversary of the city becoming a town. -SusanLesch (talk) 18:54, 29 July 2008 (UTC)
  The Original Barnstar
For working diligently to assess Minnesota-related articles--Appraiser (talk) 12:53, 4 June 2008 (UTC)
  The Good Article Barnstar
For your contributions to bring Nokomis Community Library to Good Article status. I particularly appreciate your bringing it to such high quality before nominating that almost no work remained to be done. Keep up the good work! -- Khazar2 (talk) 00:52, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
  The Million Award
For your contributions to bring Random Access Memories (estimated annual readership: 2,739,940) to Good Article status, I hereby present you the Million Award. Congratulations on this rare accomplishment, and thanks for all you do for Wikipedia's readers. Quadell (talk) 16:33, 16 December 2013 (UTC)
  The Editor's Barnstar
Congratulations on Cushing House achieving Good Article status! It turned out extremely well, and I wanted to personally thank you for being so thorough and open to discussion through the nomination process. You have some top notch work and I would happily review any article you nominate or assist with anything else that I can. Good work! -- ТимофейЛееСуда. 21:25, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
  The Reviewer Barnstar
Thank you for your thorough review of Benjamín Galván Gómez! Your work is greatly appreciated. ComputerJA () 23:46, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
  The Special Barnstar
Thanks for passing Puella Magi Madoka Magica for GA! As one of my favorite anime of all time, seeing its article as one of the best articles the WikiProject has to offer is a great achievement.

By the way, as my way of saying thanks, I'm encouraging you to take a look at my active peer review, Wikipedia:Peer review/Mami Kawada/archive3. I'm looking for more comments for said peer review, as I'm planning to send the said article to a GAN as well.

Finally, the backlog at the WikiProject's GAN list is quite long. It would be nice if you could take a look at some of them as well.

Thank you very much and happy editing. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 01:54, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

  The Citation Barnstar
For Children's Literature and Novels, there are very few of us who do the deep research needed to keep the articles from being WP:ALLPLOT. Thank you so much for rescuing Love Among the Walnuts and I hope that you keep writing in this subject area! Sadads (talk) 12:38, 2 July 2016 (UTC)
  The 50 DYK Creation and Expansion Medal
Congratulations on the more than 50 articles you have created or expanded for DYK! Your efforts to improve the encyclopedia and the DYK project are greatly appreciated. Yoninah (talk) 23:04, 8 October 2016 (UTC)
