For being a motivation factor in the Indian offline community, you deserve a more than this. Still, a small reward which I can afford too :) -- ♪Karthik♫♪Nadar♫ 07:51, 29 May 2012 (UTC)
Executive Director's Barnstar
Tinu Cherian! I am hereby awarding you the Executive Director's barnstar, for your lovely post to foundation-l earlier today, and your many contributions to the Wikimedia projects since 2006.
The Executive Director's Barnstar is an award that I give out every now and then, created for me by my colleague Frank Schulenberg, to celebrate and honour editors who are making a particularly significant contribution to the projects. Most recipents are nominated by other editors, but I nominated you myself :-)
You are a wonderful contributor. Since 2006, you've got 54K edits on 39 different projects. You're an admin here on the English Wikipedia, where you are one of the top 100 article creators, the top 300 global editors, and one of our most active editors working in India. You've created more than 2,200 articles. You're an executive member of the Indian chapter, an active volunteer on the Communications committee, a participant in our global gatherings, and an evangelist who organizes and participates in meet-ups and training sessions for newcomers.
But I am awarding you this barnstar also for your mail to foundation-l earlier today, which I thought was gorgeous. Your mail came after a long and unhappy thread about relationships among the Indian trust, the Indian chapter and the Wikimedia Foundation. What I found admirable about it was that you did not engage angrily: instead, you called upon participants in the thread to aim to be our best, wisest, most generous selves, and to remember what we are here to do, and that our work is important and necessary. As I said to you in my reply, one of the things I like best about Wikimedia is that anyone can become a leader, simply by acting like one. You showed real leadership in that thread, and I applaud you for it. Thank you for everything you have done --and will do in future-- for the Wikimedia movement.
If you, or anyone reading this, wants to nominate an editor for the ED Barnstar, please feel free to do it on my talk page. I welcome nominations. Sue Gardner (talk) 13:13, 15 November 2011 (UTC)
The Tireless Contributor Barnstar
I am watching your contributions since an year. It is so exciting to see your dedication and hardwork you put in here to make the articles nicer, better and strong in content (I strongly suggest you to go for an adminship). And an astonishing 48,636 live edits in less than 3 years!!!!. I hope that my small appreciation will add a little bit of energy to your ongoing contributions. --Samaleks (talk) 06:43, 3 October 2009 (UTC)
The Barnstar of National Merit
I've been following Tinucherian's contributions over the past couple of years, and am delighted to present to him this barnstar for his tireless contributions to Wikipedia, and to India-related articles.

To Tinucherian, for his excellent work as one of the first coordinators for the WikiProject Christianity. It's hard to describe how much of a benefit to the project you have been, but I think everyone would agree that you have more than deserved this token of our respect and thanks.

I appreciate the changes you are making to Indian Christianity Wikiproject/workgroup. I thought you deserve to be applauded since not everyone takes others opinion sportive on Wikipedia.

This award, which is long overdue, is presented to Tinucherian for fathering his first Wiki-child that has been doing a good job. P.S.: You might want to father even more such bright children coz it ain't gonna oversize the population ;) Mspraveen (talk) 13:10, 14 June 2008 (UTC)
... Thank you, Tinucherian; you are one of the best Wikipedians. You've helped us a lot. Badagnani (talk) 16:23, 28 July 2008 (UTC) (Ref)

...You have been truly outstanding in all aspects both techmical and non techinical.In particular for India and Kerala in particular and christanity.Both the great aspect your articles have been balanced and carry a neutral prespective.Actually thought of nom u for Admin we need more admins like you actually in september very few users became admins.Please let me know...Pharaoh of the Wizards (talk) 18:19, 9 October 2008 (UTC)
... Thanks again for all your help with these projects. TravellingCari 14:13, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
... By the way, dont you think it's about time we had a second admin from Kerala?--thunderboltz(TALK) 16:46, 4 December 2008 (UTC)
...I noticed that you have over 20k edits but you are not an admin yet; nor could I find an RFA in your name. Is it because you're not interested in becoming an admin? I believe that active editors should become admins. Though I haven't interacted much with you or looked through your contributions, I'm sure there would be lots of people willing to nominate you, pl. do consider it. While I'd successfully nominated two candidates so far for the RFA ...--Gurubrahma (talk) 07:17, 4 December 2008 (UTC)
.... I've reviewed a number of your contributions and decided that I would be honored to nominate you for adminship. If you're interested, please let me know, and I'll open a nomination page for you. If you're not interested, take this nomination as a commendation for your tireless work on the wiki. I'll be eager to hear from you either way. Best regards, Arbitrarily0(talk) 00:00, 13 January 2009 (UTC)...I completely respect your decision TinuCherian. If you do decide that you are ready in the future, please let me know, as I hope to be first in supporting your request. For now though, keep up the excellent work! Cheers! Arbitrarily0(talk) 18:29, 13 January 2009 (UTC)
.... It's a bit odd being an admin when there are people like you out there who should have got the mop long ago! (Hint, hint!) --Regent's Park (Rose Garden) 16:08, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
I would second RegentsPark on the hint. Wiki San Roze†αLҝ 20:42, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

What is Wiki-adoption? It is a program designed to help new and inexperienced users.
I help to mentor them along the way as they learn about Wikipedia. We hope that this program will be able to steer new users away from vandalism and test edits, and instead teach them the ins and outs of Wikipedia.
