  The Special Barnstar
To be totally fair, I'll admit I had my heart set on 2 barnstars (the first I couldn't find/decide on):A Barnstar for perservence and Good faith, (likely the Diligence one, but I'm not sure) and the Good Humor one (for the ambox thing). Some editors don't like to have Barnstars because they are crowded with them. So I wanted to make sure the timing was right. I think you deserve this for helping me.
