This for your hardworks on enhancing Wikipedia through technical works such as programming, bot building and approving, Village pump, etc. I appreciate your selfless service to the encyclopedia.

A barnstar for you!

The Barnstar of Diligence
I was going back through several bot-related discussions, some heated up, some less-so, and it struck me just how consistently reasonable, thoughtful, and well-articulated you were, as an editor, as a BAG member, and as a 'crat.

So here's a barnstar for that, because quality deserves recognition. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 19:27, 23 June 2019 (UTC)

A barnstar for you!

It occurred to me yesterday that you are a (perhaps the?) primary maintainer of a staggering number of the project's core technical and administrative processes—and have been for as long as I can remember. Frankly, I find the amount of work you do daunting. Thanks for everything you do to ensure that the rest of us can do what we do! Compassionate727 (T·C) 01:47, 8 October 2022 (UTC)
