Barnstar from User:Essjay

For good work.

Hey Waggers, I noticed you around doing good work, and I thought I'd stop by and leave you a barnstar to say "Thanks for the good work!" Good job, keep it up! Essjay (TalkConnect) 08:53, 4 May 2006 (UTC)

Thanks so much for presenting me with my first barnstar - it means a great deal to me, so many many thanks. Waggers 11:08, 4 May 2006 (UTC)

Soap Award from User:The prophet wizard of the crayon cake

Thanks to your lovely hammering cudgel of holy justice... you have smitten (insert random IP numbers here), and hastily reconstructed the great kingdom of me. For your great thwartings against tomfoolery, I present to you my Patented Soap Award tm.

You now totally have soap. This soap is slippery, and thus good.

Much thanks. -- The Prophet Wizard of the Crayon Cake (Prophesize|Witchcraft) 21:09, 26 June 2006 (UTC)

Half barnstar from User:Jwikiediting

We originally disagreed on the colours and formatting used on Portal:Hampshire (Portal:Hampshire/box-header) but we came to a good agreement which incorporated what we both wanted which ended up following what the official county wants too.
