I don't think I've ever given a barnstar before. I've seen them handed out for a lot of good but minor work, but I wanted to recognize the serious effort you put into the AMX article. Your perseverance and drive made that article what it is today and you were able to do it while working with Malik. Thanks again. Protonk (talk) 02:11, 1 October 2010 (UTC)
Thank you Protonk! This means a lot because of the tremendous effort, so thanks for reinforcing my good behaviors and hard work, and for encouraging cooperation with Malik, the article, wiki, and I am better off for your efforts. — GabeMc (talk) 02:18, 1 October 2010 (UTC)

Thank you Malik, the article would not be GA if not for your input, I am proud to have worked with you on the article. — GabeMc (talk) 20:02, 21 October 2010 (UTC)

You, Anythingyouwant and Wasted Time deserve any one of several barnstars for your work at Mitt Romney's FAC, but I chose this one because of your tireless effort cooperating with the other two in resolving the many many issues that had to be tackled. Congratulations on helping get the article to where it is. hamiltonstone (talk) 00:51, 2 November 2012 (UTC)

Civility Barnstar Hires.png The Civility Barnstar
Just a recognition for your effort in trying to improve Are You Experienced. Don't let a small dispute with Dan to back you off from editing that page. I had a similar argument with him a year ago, but that wasn't an obstacle for getting the Metallica album to GA status. Cheers and continue the great work. Hendrix's albums are important and should be high-quality Wiki articles. Вик Ретлхед (talk) 13:32, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

GabeMc, for your skilled writing on a series of rock music FAs which have been further complimented with the promotion of Jimi Hendrix. Sorry I couldn't get there to vote, but for what it's worth, I would have supported nonetheless. Congratulations! CassiantoTalk 21:01, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

Gabe, although I did some work in sourcing and copyediting where I could, and fielding questions at PR and FAC, there is no way this would have ever been probably one of the best and most important FAs on Wikipedia of all time without your input and time and dedication in fielding the most nitpicking of nitpickers that FAC throws at editors. Well done. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 16:25, 23 May 2014 (UTC)
