Barnstars[edit]

These barnstars and other awards are on a subpage. I wish to thank HighInBC for both creating the subpage and for awarding me my first barnstar. My RfA/RfB-related awards are located on User: Acalamari/RfA-related awards.

My three most recent barnstars are transcluded onto my user page:

Wikipedia bureaucrat.svg Bureaucrat's award
Hi Acalamari,

I've seen that you've been closing most of the recent RfAs, and I thought I'd give you this just so you know that your work doesn't go unnoticed. Keep it up! Face-smile.svg Biblioworm 18:48, 29 November 2014 (UTC)

Bureaucrat Barnstar Hires.png The Bureaucrat's Barnstar
Time and time again, the bureaucrats of en-wiki demonstrate their levelheadedness and expertise. Like an anesthesiologist in an operating room, you spend most of your time screwing around reading a magazine, but stand ready to spring into action when needed, only to fade into the background once your important work is done.

Or perhaps that's more like Batman? Whatever your preferred metaphor, I am consistently impressed by the bureaucrat corps. Thank you for your service. HiDrNick! 12:46, 6 August 2015 (UTC)

Tireless Contributor Barnstar.gif The Tireless Contributor Barnstar
After serving as a Wikipedian for exactly 10 years, this is for the countless contributions you've made throughout the past decade. Very few people I know of have even come close to working on the site for so long. That takes serious dedication. Happy 10th Anniversary! Yes; I timed this to coincide with the very minute you registered your account per UTC time. Snuggums (talk / edits) 03:29, 20 October 2016 (UTC)

Modest Barnstar Hires.png The Modest Barnstar
I think it is appropriate to give you a barnstar for disregarding the mistaken oppose vote and allowing the Rfa for User:Go Phightins! to have unanimous support. Perhaps a modest act, but one for which the modest barnstar is probably intended. After I looked into the oppose vote, I had hoped it would be disregarded, which seemed fair under the circumstances.

Time and time again, the bureaucrats of en-wiki demonstrate their levelheadedness and expertise.

Or perhaps that's more like Batman? Whatever your preferred metaphor, I am consistently impressed by the bureaucrat corps. Thank you for your service. HiDrNick! 12:46, 6 August 2015 (UTC)

The following text is not an actual award, but due to its content, and by the fact it's a message from Mr. Jimbo Wales, it's just as good as an award. Here is the edit he made. Since the message Mr. Wales posted on my talk page ultimately got archived, I have copied and pasted it here for others to read:
