For your thorough research and lively writing, in stylishly synthesizing and parsing the raft of contradictory and confusing information about Coward and bringing the Noël Coward article through GA-class to FAC, as well as for your creation or expansion of numerous related articles, including articles on many of Coward's plays and musicals, I hereby award to you this special barnstar. -- Ssilvers (talk) 23:21, 20 March 2009

The WikiPen Victorian WikiPen of Scholarship

I hereby grant this WikiPen to Tim riley for outstanding research and writing in connection with topics of musical and theatrical interest in the Victorian era, including his recent series of new and expanded articles on the early opera burlesques of W. S. Gilbert and the 1880s burlesques at the Gaiety Theatre, London.

For all the detailed and careful hard work you did on Jacques Offenbach. (When we leave our comments on the Talk page, we often forget to also say "Thanks!") Robert.Allen (talk) 07:15, 26 July 2011 (UTC)


Compass barnstar.png The Guidance Barnstar
Tim riley, I want to thank you for all your time and patience in helping me make Stanley Holloway a Good Article. Without your help and guidance the article would certainly not be what it is today. After my initially troublesome start, it was you who restored my faith in Wikipedia by taking the time to improve the article whilst treating me in a friendly and resilient manner. I would also like to thank you for all your valuable and respected advice along the way. I would therefore feel honoured if you would accept this barnstar as a token of my thanks.

I don't care if it was a coincidence, that is, by far, the quickest anyone has ever responded to on of my {{fact}}s. Well deserved for finding that quote in regards to Tudor Rose. Achowat (talk) 14:12, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

Aldwych Theatre 2.jpg The Awesome Farces Award
I award you this "Awesome Farces" award in recognition of your serious achievements made, while drawing dirty looks from the librarians at the British Library, as you guffawed your way through the scripts of the Aldwych farces. This award also reflects your various other ongoing efforts to improve articles about the theatre in the English-speaking world, including plays, theatre companies, actors, producers, writers and critics. You are not merely a prolific contributor, but a skilled researcher and a stylish writer. Your contributions can only be described as "awesome", and that's no farce! -- Ssilvers (talk) 10:02, 27 February 2013 (UTC)

Without your highly valued insights and edits at Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/George Harrison/archive2, the article would not be FA today! Thanks so much for all the encouragement! GabeMc (talk|contribs) 20:34, 12 April 2013 (UTC)

I wanted to give you this barnstar for your contributions to Benjamin Britten which is now today's featured article. Having such articles on such important figures in the arts is a great credit to this encyclopedia. For each person that listens to the Courtly Dances from Gloriana because of reading that article, you'll have helped light a fire in a heart!

Thanks for your diligent copyediting on royal intermarriage. Although a registered user since 2005, I've only started editing articles (for want of a better word) properly quite recently, so you've been very helpful. Sotakeit (talk) 08:24, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
