Reading First Crusade, I saw your work for an article under review that could have been quick-failed outright. For carrying on regardless by completing a thumbs-up evaluation, and doing a lot of work on the article yourself, despite the fact the article doesn't appear as if it's going to be able to pass, I award you this barnstar.
