Greetings!
Over my time on Wikipedia, I have switched jobs a bit. Initially, I was more of a vandal hunter. While I still do that, I have spent more time in the last year or so doing article maintenance and referencing.

I am generally bold in doing so, and sometimes, I may accidentally revert an edit that was legit. Please accept my apologies in advance. Leave a message on my Talk Page so that I can get back to you and apologize more personally.

Awards[edit]

I am not one to go hunting for awards, but I am grateful to any editor who takes time to say something nice about my work. This gallery isn't so much about what I have done as it is about saying "thank you" to those editors.

DYK[edit]

Updated DYK query On 26 September, 2008, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article 1971 Major League Baseball All-Star Game, which you created or substantially expanded. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the Did you know? talk page.

This ìs your second schools barnstar. It comes in recognition of the continuation of your 'lonely' and tireless work and thousands of edits for over two years, gnoming away at the improvement of school articles.
