I'm a student in the north of the UK interested in Mathematics, Science and Music. I was adopted by Worm That Turned, but now have had my training wheels taken off and even made it into the signpost. I have created articles mainly on English Churches and French Mountains, obtaining quite a few DYKs and even some GAs along the way. I help out at the Teahouse, the Reference Desks and am often around on the IRC channel #wikipedia-en-help connect. I'm an adopter and a Good Article recruiter, and am willing to help new editors find their feet through these programmes and on a more informal basis.

The Good Article Medal of Merit / The DYK Medal 
Thank you for your transformative RFC that gets WP:GA some exposure on the main page through its WP:DYK portal.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 01:04, 7 September 2013 (UTC)

Coolidge after signing indian treaty.jpg Tip of the hat
A tip of the hat for your extreme perseverance in pursuing the Good Article RfC against the extreme resistance to change that occurs here from time to time. Another hat tip for your positive good nature in the face of wikilawyering and filibustering in the months leading up to this. The much unloved Wikipedia reader will be better served by this. First Light (talk) 01:16, 7 September 2013 (UTC)

Well done on completing the course! I'm sorry I've been so slow on all the jobs, but you've been an excellent student and have the makings of a great wikipedian.

Since there is nothing more I think I can teach you and I believe you will cope on this encyclopedia without your training wheels, you can consider yourself as a full graduate of Worm That Turned's Adoption Program! I'll always be around if you need me, but I am confident you will do very well on your own! WormTT(talk) 10:39, 16 July 2012 (UTC)

Tireless Contributor Barnstar Hires.gif The Tireless Contributor Barnstar
For sterling efforts in promoting awareness of use of ecclesiastical buildings as vantage points for observation of pretty countryside, and helping improve coverage of everyone's favourite Transylvanian Count. (I had thought I was fed up with too many DYKs about church buildings, but you've helped add some more variety.) --Demiurge1000 (talk) 18:48, 11 June 2012 (UTC)
