  The 200 DYK Creation and Expansion Medal
Hi Zanhe, its quite a time since I gave you a DYK award for 25 articles and now you have made 200. Well done. In the meantime you have helped save Wikipedia from being seen as biased towards American culture, British buildings, and celebrity sports stars et al. You have tried to redress the balance and your contributions remind us that most people do not live in America or Western Europe and there are other parts of the globe. I hope you continue to enjoy writing and I'd like to thank you on behalf of the community, the DYK project and me. Victuallers (talk) 12:06, 14 October 2015 (UTC)

Hi Zahne: This is to acknowledge your behind-the-scenes work in patrolling the DYK nominations page for nominations that fail eligibility requirements, or that have been withdrawn/rejected and need to be removed from the page. Your unheralded work is actually very much appreciated by prep builders like myself, as it lets us skip over ineligible hooks while we wade through the page. Thank you!
