Hello all! I will be leaving for London tonight and will be there for the entire duration of my Spring Break. Every time I've taken a vacation in the past, it seems I'm more active than I've anticipated, but I am unsure I'll be editing much at all over the next 10 days. Thus, it may take me a long time to respond to any messages and/or queries. --Bentvfan54321 (talk) 14:02, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

This editor is a Yeoman Editor and is entitled to display this Service Badge.

Hello, I'm Ben, a high school student in Delaware, and classmate of User:CNMcintyre and User:Nightwing01 (both, however, are relatively inactive compared to me). I joined Wikipedia on December 28, 2012; however, I started editing much more actively in April 2014. My main focuses on Wikipedia are the game show and NASCAR related articles; I am a member of both WikiProjects in those areas. In addition, I am a fan of IndyCar, F1, the NBA, the NFL, and their NCAA counterparts, and will occasionally edit pages related to those topics if I notice a mistake in them.

As Jimbo Wales states on his user page, I trust you. You can edit this page (or any of my subpages) if you notice a mistake (e.g. I've forgotten to add a GA I've received credit for, or update the class/rating of an article in my list of goals), but please, no personal attacks. As many others have said before me, being rude will get you nowhere. Don't get me wrong, I am a human. No human is infallible. Feel free to revert any mistake I make and let me know why, but do it in a polite manner. We are here to build an Encyclopedia, not start an edit war. Thanks, --Bentvfan54321 (talk) 00:34, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for being an awesome nominator and making Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (U.S. game show) an almost perfect article!

Thank you for being that one editor who had nothing to the article, but changed the mistakes needed to make it a GA! Congrats on making All-China Women's Federation GA! Cheers! --Brandon (MrWooHoo)Talk to Brandon! 01:20, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
