Counter Vandalism Tools & My Impression of Them
Available WP Counter Vandalism Tools

27 Dec 06 - Installed. Sounds and looks good; has a lot of potential. But, seems to be heavily laden with bugs, poor documentation, and needs a backup to its inventor in order to maintain enthusiasm for the tool.
20 Mar 07 - Hardly used it this year. Need to see if a new version is available.
29 Dec 06 - Working with this now; seems to slow IE down; I do often find the popups annoying; wish there were a quick hotkey way to toggle them on and off. UGH!
01 Jan 07 - Now trying to work with this in Mozilla's Firefox. It is nearly impossibly slow (memory hog?) in IE.
20 Mar 07 - Much happier with it since I've been in Mozilla. Still haven't taken the time to figure out most of the features though.
20 Mar 07 - approved for use; installed;

Awards & Barnstars[edit]

The Fauna Barnstar[edit]

Wildlife Barnstar (V5) Alt.png The Fauna Barnstar
You've done admirable work with WikiProject Dogs since it's inception, and it wouldn't be anywhere near what it is without your invaluable work. Thanks for all you have done, and all I hope that you plan to do in the future. Badbilltucker 17:33, 16 December 2006 (UTC)

Patience and character deserve recognition[edit]

Purple Star.png The Purple Heart Award
For having repeatedly put up with unwarranted insults, personal attacks, and harassment from a new and clearly inexperienced editor, and carrying on in the best interests of wikipedia regardless, I think that you have more than earned this small token of recognition. Badbilltucker 23:15, 20 January 2007 (UTC)
  • Indeed - I earned this one the hard way! Thank you so much, BadBilltucker, and others for your support, work and patience regarding "this" matter. You all know who you are and know what "this" is. I owe you one, and you know how to contact me. Kind Regards, Keesiewonder talk 13:48, 21 January 2007 (UTC)

The Barnstar of Diligence[edit]

Barnstar of Diligence.png The Barnstar of Diligence
I, Chrislk02, award you this barnstar of diligence for your hard work and scrutiny of article sources ensuring that wikipedia has only the best information. Furthermore, you are a model wikipedian in the way you handle disputes and remain calm in situations others would blow their top over. You are a model wikipedian and an asset to the community. Keep up the good work. -- Chrislk02 (Chris Kreider) 18:05, 14 February 2007 (UTC)
