What does this mean? In my view- not as active as i was when i began editing Wiki. The edits I will be making though will be for maintaining current page work/creations/ or obvious corrections needed for particular pages. I will also still be actively involved in RFA requests. I expect this semi retirement to last indefinitely due to various time commitments in the foreseeable future. .

A Barnstar!

For your contributions to women's hockey articles like the Clarkson Cup, I award you The Running Man Barnstar. Maple Leaf (talk) 17:13, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

I like awards but I often like to give these out in excess as well :)

Its good to point out some information about barnstars. The option to give them out requires nothing more than actually giving a different user the award. If I've come across a user account that i think (even if its something small)deserves recognition, they will get an award. There is no true definition or rules to follow in giving these awards out at this time. Though my criteria today is more stringant than say a few years ago, That said I do issue challenges for users on Wikipedia:Reward board regularly. A full list of awards that I am offering can be found here, the challenges though are meant to be difficult to do and are not easy; O4E Challenges
