I'm back! Not that anyone seems to have missed me!
I am an a wiki-break from regular editing due to a new job which requires 6 months of intensive training. Between January 2010 and June 2010 my editing will be sporadic, though I will try to check in a couple times a week for messages, etc. Please feel free to e-mail/leave a note on my talk page if you want to chat!

Some good advice I received from a more experienced user about the frustrations that can happen here!
:Understandable. Wikipedia can definitely be a frustrating place at times! When I find myself getting hot under the collar, I either step away from the computer, or I go do some wikignome activities for awhile. For example, there's lots to be done at WP:CLEANUP. I especially enjoy working through the pages at Category:Disambiguation pages in need of cleanup, though Category:Articles that need to be wikified is good too, either to wikify articles, or remove the tag if they've already been handled. And it can be quite therapeutic to work on pages that aren't in dispute, in areas where people are actually grateful for the help! :) --Elonka 05:14, 25 October 2009 (UTC)
None yet...but I remain hopeful that someday I may receive one. Interesting side note, Barnstars are used in the real world to reinforce crumbling buildings, and are a major risk indicator for firefighters!
