  The Tireless Contributor Barnstar
Only because of you -- and you alone -- my idea worked out and was a great success, whatever it was, some junk or whatever. I couldn't figure out whether to go with Brilliant Idea (for knowing how to use google) or Photographer's (for your photographic memory on how to use google) or Teamwork (for both of us using google) or Editor's (for copywriting up "hey this is what I found on google, dummy, so give me a barnstar") or No Spam (because you didn't send me any spam; you sent me google results) or Diligence (because you really worked google after knowing I had failed) or Surreal (because you're really, really, weird). But thanks so much for tirelessly typing some words into google for me. <3 <3 <3 — Smuckola (Email) (Talk) 08:34, 17 June 2014 (UTC)

A pie for you!Edit

  Thanks for the tweaks on Landing area to clear lingering close-paraphrase issues! CrowCaw 22:55, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
Why, thank you ever so kindly. A most unexpected reward. Now that I have taken a gander at your user page, and your "ravening" WP:DYK (congrats!), I got inspired to write down a true story in a form of a time-honored didactic device from the zen tradition and a literary form taught to me by my teacher and friend Douglas R. Hofstadter. (vide section directly below) --Mareklug talk 08:13, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

And you did it, Tom! Your heroic effort to get it done, mostly through your edits, and to get it done in time for the article to feature as a Featured Article on the Main Page on the anniversary of the day that shall forever live in infamy, well. Tom, for this you deserve a star of its own joy and designing. Allow me:

A Barnstar of Good Humor for youEdit

  The Barnstar of Good Humor
For being someone that can cope with repeated mistakes in typing, when someone is trying to say the right thing and tripping themselves up in a cognitive failure loop. We could all do with people that can take the time to eventually know what was intended. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 11:37, 16 May 2018 (UTC)
