The Original Barnstar
You're constantly doing good things on Wikipedia. You're one of the most thoughtful, considerate editors I know - you're not afraid to ask for help when needed, and that's an admirable quality. I sometimes get the impression that you under-value your own contribution to the project - that's why I wanted to award this; it's not for any one specific thing - because you do lots. Cheers!  Chzz  ►  19:47, 10 April 2011 (UTC)

For you :)

Editor of the Week

[edit]
Editor of the Week
Your ongoing efforts to improve the encyclopedia have not gone unnoticed: You have been selected as Editor of the Week for your determination and dedication to help the encyclopedia grow. Thank you for the great contributions! (courtesy of the Wikipedia Editor Retention Project)

Editor Worm That Turned submitted the following nomination for Editor of the Week and Sainsf seconded it:

I nominate Shearonink to be Editor of the Week for his hard work on Wikipedia. Shearonink has been around a long time (20K edits, 36% to articles) and talks a lot of sense, but hasn't had much recognition of those facts. He used to live in at the IRC help channel, helping out those who needed it and that used to be a lot of people (I don't really go in there any more, so I can't talk for more recent events). Ever since his friends have started leaving, he seems to have slightly disappeared. I wanted him to know that it's not just his friends who appreciate who he is! It is all of Wikipedia.

You can copy the following text to your user page to display a user box proclaiming your selection as Editor of the Week:

Thanks for standing up for me. I thought my level 3 warning was kind of too much too. I like editing Wikipedia in my freetime and thought my sources were alright. I don't ever add spam or weird content. Just a fan of Erika Jayne and I always add sources. I wish you all the best and happy holidays!

DYK for Solomon Hughes (actor)

[edit]

On 6 June 2022, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Solomon Hughes (actor), which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that Solomon Hughes was a Harlem Globetrotter before he played a Laker in film? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Solomon Hughes (actor). You are welcome to check how many pageviews the nominated article or articles got while on the front page (here's how, Solomon Hughes (actor)), and if they received a combined total of at least 416.7 views per hour (i.e., 5,000 views in 12 hours or 10,000 in 24), the hook may be added to the statistics page. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

SilkTork - Awwww, thanks! Muchly appreciated. I just nominated it for a DYK? - see Template:Did you know nominations/Kline's Mill, Virginia. Lol, think I stuffed enough hooks in there? Shearonink (talk) 11:01, 11 October 2022 (UTC)

For fine work rescuing Thomas Johnston (engraver)

[edit]
The Engraver's Award
Thank you for your beyond-the-call-of-duty work on Thomas Johns[t]on, the engraver. It is sad to see so many GAs biting the dust; I'm glad at least one now looks likely to survive. By the way that's the engraver Thomas Bewick himself in his tailpiece engraving ... and I think that branch he's holding is about to break ... Chiswick Chap (talk) 16:36, 28 February 2023 (UTC)
Awwwww, thank you so much. I felt so badly about this GA. I reviewed it and things slipped past me, as they all slipped past so many of us. Didn't seem right to me that this notable person's article could lose its GA designation - though I do completely understand the why...I think it will retain its present designation. Speaking of engraving, you should see the last source I got my hands on...I actually bought it used but it is basically a pristine copy. Turns out this book is so rare (and I believe it's out of print) that I am hoping to donate it to a local library's reference room. Shearonink (talk) 16:55, 28 February 2023 (UTC)

A slight Update...I have taken this Featured List off my Watchlist and have abandoned it to the tender mercies of a non-collegial HERETORIGHTGREATWRONGS recalcitrant editor. I have no special rights to this List, but wanted to mention the fact that I rescued it from its previously-awful, completely-unreferenced, stubby state as seen here in the version I started working on almost 13 years ago. Au revoir.
