Thank you for peer reviewing Le chemin de fer. Peer review work is rarely appreciated as much as it should be. Although this star is an insufficient expression of my thanks, it will have to do. Also, I've looked at your contribs and you seem like an accomplished editor with quality edits. Please continue doing what you do; your work is appreciated! ALTON .ıl 04:51, 22 March 2008 (UTC)

Dear MeegsC,

Thank you so much for your wonderful work on the Golden-crowned Sparrow article last year! It was very inspiring for me to see you address so much of the feedback that was posted on this page, turning it into a much better article in the process. I also really appreciate your thoughtful support of the Article Feedback tool and I hope that you will continue to find it useful in coming years.

If you would like to keep in touch more often, I invite you to join our editor engagement mailing list, where we discuss initiatives that support new users and experienced editors on Wikipedia. We recently opened this list to the public, so we could have more frequent conversations with valued community members like you. To join us, you are very welcome to sign up here.

And if you haven't already, I also encourage you to contribute to the current discussion on whether or not to deploy Article Feedback v5 widely on the English Wikipedia (see RfC). Because of your familiarity with this tool, you are in a unique position to present an informed perspective on its potential benefits. Note that we are adding a few final features recommended by the community, such as simpler moderation tools and better filters (see project update).

Thanks again for being such a great contributor -- I look forward to more collaborations with you, to help make Wikipedia better for all of us!
