Roger, I thought that this is the appropriate thanks for helping the Sophiatown article get GA status. I could also have selected a copyeditor's barnstar to acknowledge your editing. The reason I chose this one was that you helped and coordinated the whole process and also guided and mentored a novice gently through all of this. Well done.

I just wanted to show my appreciation in the way you swiftly closed down the medal ranking debate at Talk:2012 Summer Olympics medal table before it turned into full scale bloodshed. I hope and pray that the discussion doesn't get revisited come Sochi 2014 and Rio 2016. Wesley Mouse 14:51, 7 August 2012 (UTC)
