I award this Barnstar to Invertzoo for her elegant work on so many mollusk articles, and for her special ability to write with clarity for non-specialists, as nearly all Wikipedia science articles should be written, without compromising accuracy and without patronising.

Dear Invertzoo: Thank you for taking upon yourself the concern and effort to essentially train a newbie in the ways of Wikipedia. Your dedication, even devotion, to helping me get a hold on how to code articles/text and think in an encyclopedic writing style has helped immeasurably to prepare valuable content for Wikipedia. You are a very special person and I am grateful for your assistance. Enviromet (talk) 14:37, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

Gourmet macaque.png The Gourmet Macaque
User:Invertzoo, due to your marvelous work at the Laevistrombus canarium FAC, I'm awarding you this Gourmet Macaque. It is bringing you a delicious dish of dog conch with cherry-tomatoes and lettuce. This is a reminder of the funniest moment of the review in my humble opinion, during the first comments from Sasata! =) Though you are reluctant to admit it, I couldn't have done it without your help. The copy-editing solution (among many other things) was crucial to the success of the FAC, and you came in just in time! I was back from my vacation, buried under a mountain of work, and you were there when I couldn't. Time was of the essence. Thank you! You should be as proud of this FA as I am!--Daniel Cavallari (talk) 23:43, 23 January 2013 (UTC)
Baklava - Turkish special, 80-ply.JPEG Hi. I saw your wiki video and searched about you. I really admire the passion that you have for your work. It was really inspiring. Also, it was a pleasure to see your desk and working area in the video. It was like your small world. I bet it must be one of your precious things. Thanks for inspiring me.
