A barnstar for you![edit]

Kindness Barnstar Hires.png The Random Acts of Kindness Barnstar
Thank you for your kind words on ANI, I know that I'm not perfect but I try to do my best and also the right thing. In future, I will stand by my new found belief as stated on my talk because its not worth my time and energy to take on their load. Duds in here are duds in real life too, why try to sing to a cow, right? In any case, I really appreciate your kindness and wish you a great day ahead. Best.

Here's a barnstar for all your hard work![edit]

Thank you for all your hard work on the Mayflower passenger articles, you have earned this award several times over for your fine editing. And maybe I can think of a few other Barnstars you really deserve also.

Re: your email[edit]

Hi there. I don't really understand what you were trying to say, could you provide me with some diffs? Basalisk inspect damageberate 23:18, 1 March 2013 (UTC)�

Sure. I will do it by email again. Mugginsx (talk) 23:22, 1 March 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I can assure you that I didn't do that deliberately; I think I must have hit the rollback button on my watchlist accidentally. I figured this out just before you emailed me and left him a message on his talk page; he can fix it if he wants to. Thanks for letting me know. Basalisk inspect damageberate 23:31, 1 March 2013 (UTC)
No problem. Have hit the rollback key by mistake myself. It happens. Thanks for fixing. Mugginsx (talk) 23:33, 1 March 2013 (UTC)

John Smith (explorer)[edit]

I must admit that the protocol on discussions, and what people actually prefer can be confusing. So I post this here as well as on my talk page. Perhaps it should be reverted. It looks like the type of insidious vandalism that the essays warn against as the worst kind. That is, it looks like it may be credible so editors are reluctant to revert it, as I was, even though it is suspicious to someone with some familiarity with the subject. It might take a good amount of research to come to a firm conclusion that it is wrong. The names sound perhaps right, one or two perhaps a bit off for the time. At least I tagged it for a citation needed; but perhaps with a closer look, it should be reverted with a note that it should only be added if there is a reliable, verifiable source. Donner60 (talk) 18:46, 5 March 2013 (UTC)

I agree and I reverted it. It is in none of the usual sources. Mugginsx (talk) 19:06, 5 March 2013 (UTC)
Good work. Thanks. Donner60 (talk) 04:19, 6 March 2013 (UTC)

Stephen Hopkins (Mayflower passenger)[edit]

With regard to Stephen Hopkins (Mayflower passenger), I think you've already done what I would have suggested - seek out the other talk page participant's opinion regarding the use of the source under discussion. I think now everyone is agreed that it's ok to use, so you can feel justified in reinstating statements based on that source. - Nunh-huh 01:39, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for your help and guidance. Mugginsx (talk) 12:03, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Talk:Stephen Hopkins (Mayflower passenger)[edit]

I wonder if you would check back with this talk page. The objections you had regarding author Caleb Johnson have been answered and several examples have been given. Would like to hear if your opinion has changed so we know how to proceed. Thankyou. Mugginsx (talk) 12:11, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

I'm still not thrilled with using self-published sources, but it seems everyone else is content with recognizing Johnson as an expert, so I'm not going argue about it. —Aɴɢʀ (talk) 17:04, 30 September 2014 (UTC)
Thank you. I think this is the only author I have ever used that is both self-published and published by other sources and I do agree with you on authors that are only self-published. Mugginsx (talk) 17:41, 30 September 2014 (UTC)
