Thanks so much for all your contributions. You do a lot of the work that most of us wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole, and despite you being a bit less active now than before, the work you do is still highly appreciated.

Editor of the week barnstar.svg Editor of the Week
Your ongoing efforts to improve the encyclopedia have not gone unnoticed: You have been selected as Editor of the Week for embodying the true characteristics of an "editor of the week". Thank you for the great contributions! (courtesy of the Wikipedia Editor Retention Project)

L235 submitted the following nomination for Editor of the Week:

I nominate Darylgolden as Editor of the Week for their great work in articles for creation and other maintenance or cleanup-related behind-the-scenes dredge duty. Darylgolden is a very consistent AfC reviewer, and I haven't really found a review I strongly disagree with yet. Darylgolden also goes deep on their reviews - not just snatching the easy fast declines for a higher edit count. Darylgolden takes the time to check sources and has a good accept-to-decline ratio. Darylgolden also does heaps of other miscellaneous gnome-y work, such as maintain persondata templates- something most editors don't dare to touch with a ten-foot pole. Darylgolden is really an all-around great editor.
