The Tireless Contributor Barnstar is awarded to especially tireless editors who contribute an especially large body of work without sacrificing quality.

The large body of work in this case is removing all the links to the toolbox. I've seen how many you've had to already, and I know I would have quit after only a small fraction of that number. John Carter (talk) 18:03, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

I see you developed & completed the Miley Cyrus portal. Thank you sooooo much! I created it not realizing how hard it is & I'm still a newcomer. I'm still learning. But I created it, but didn't know how to do all of it & the portal instructions were totally confusing. So thank you so much for finishing it for me. I've been trying to raise awareness about the portal, & recruit editors to collaborate with me on maintaining & completing the portal. So thank you for taking the time to finish it. That means a lot to me. It is greatly appreciated. God bless! :D Lopezjaylo98 (talk) 18:49, 3 October 2012 (UTC)
