Because it feels good to have them, I decided to put them together on one page. This is in addition to the many posts I receive with thanks for fixes I made.

Clean up complete[edit]

Thanks a lot for helping out! It's a nice feeling to see an empty category. Now let's hope we can keep it trimmed down! Oh, and by the way... Sillyfolkboy (talk) 01:25, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

Starhalf.png The Half Barnstar
I, Sillyfolkboy, hereby award the right half of a barnstar to Debresser, for his co-operation with emptying out the "Wikipedia pages with broken references" category. Excellent work and thanks for the support! Sillyfolkboy (talk) 01:25, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

Did you award yourself with the other half? If not, let me know and I'll take care of it. :) Debresser (talk) 01:27, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

I think it would a bit self-serving to give myself the other half! After all, why shouldn't giving the barnstar be a collaborative effort too? (courtesy link). Sillyfolkboy (talk) 01:40, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
Thanks! I suppose we both have the right half as there isn't a wrong half. Ho ho ho. Take care. Sillyfolkboy (talk) 01:51, 14 April 2009 (UTC)


Thanks for fixing my mistakes re. the templates. Much obliged.  :) --PMDrive1061 (talk) 00:50, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

You fixed the last remaining template loop[edit]

I awarded myself this barnstar after fixing the last of the template loops in Category:Template loop warnings (and all others before that). There have been quite a few challenges on the way! Debresser (talk) 02:26, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

Awesome job[edit]

Minor Barnstar[edit]

Thanks for the fix on one of my sub-userpages. I figured my first edit (after restoring my userspace) would be a barnstar. Thank you! Æon Insanity Now! 04:52, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
Hey. That's very nice of you! Thanks.

Random fix Barnstar[edit]

Blueprint Barnstar 2.PNG The Template Barnstar
Awarded for somehow stumbling across my WikiQuote template subpage (which nobody uses except me), and fixing something about it, which I likewise don't understand! I didn't even know something was wrong; I had just haphazardly copied the template! :) Peace and Passion ("I'm listening....") 02:28, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

Better late than never[edit]

Bug blank.svg The Bug Squasher Award for Excellence
For your recent timely error report, I award you the Bug Squasher Award for Excellence in troubleshooting efforts. Thank you for catching this error so quickly! You brought up this BLP issue to me in July, as you can see I caught it on the flipside: [1]. Cheers, –xenotalk 04:09, 4 October 2009 (UTC)
A big reward for such a small bug. :) Debresser (talk) 05:49, 4 October 2009 (UTC)

Good work![edit]

Nice to have another set of eyes looking in on the J.P Danel fansite... err... I mean ... article. :-) Some serious WP:COI issues on that one. Page is very 'self-promo'. Note the links to the "notable" guitars that the guy plays. Does a good job at prying notability-by-association across many related pages. And with that...

For the fantastic editing skills you display every time you take a "sows ear" and turn it into "silk purse" Keep up the good work! The Real Libs-speak politely 14:36, 7 October 2009 (UTC)
Thank you. High praise for removing a few links. Debresser (talk) 15:41, 7 October 2009 (UTC)
Every little bit counts. Some people come here just to use the project for their own purpose. And some come here just to whine and b*t*h. An editor who just keeps plugging away at constructive edits for the betterment of all can sometimes be a rare occurrence here. You are an editor with a focus... a "git-r-done" editor. And the star is well earned for your efforts. The Real Libs-speak politely 17:06, 7 October 2009 (UTC)
A humbled "thank you" for your praise. Debresser (talk) 17:55, 7 October 2009 (UTC)

Special thanks[edit]
