For assuming good faith and trying to help Flameviper, even though he utterly abused your good faith in the end and it didn't work out. Keep it up.

Upholder of The Wiki award
I, Wpktsfs, would like to give you this Upholder of The Wiki award because I see you everywhere and you are always "upholding" the "wiki" and what it stands for.

Zen Garden.jpg
The Zen Garden Award for Infinite Patience
I was quite honest when I said that I was willing to trust you with handling the Flameviper situation. Even though you, myself, and several others were willing to give him another chance, it turns out that he was obviously unreformed, and will most likely never fully understand Wikipedia's policies.

You, however, have shown commendable dedication to WP:AGF, both in your personal belief at his redemption and your well-reasoned arguing for the aforementioned (and ill-fated) "final chance" that convinced several otherwise skeptical admins, myself included.

The description for this award states it may be awarded to "an editor who has shown extraordinary patience in the face of toil or turmoil". The lacking here was all on Flameviper's part, not yours; as a result, I'm proud to present you with this award. EVula // talk // // 04:01, 14 June 2007 (UTC)
