  The Resilient Barnstar
You had several rather blunt admin on your talk page a few months back criticizing you pretty strongly. You took that in stride, and have become a real asset to the project in the time since. There aren't that many people who can take criticism from a bunch of anonymous strangers, still stay engaged with a hobby, and grow better at it, and for that, you deserve this barnstar.
