You can remove me from any and all lists. I'll fix a typo or error now and again - but don't log in anymore. (Ched) 2601:547:1203:1414:B964:3ECC:EFCD:38A5 (talk) 18:40, 17 August 2016 (UTC)

Thanks all around[edit]

Just for future reference: I don't mind an IP dropping a note here (so long as it's not outright vandalism). I've even posted a time or two myself as an IP. I'm really not interested in coming back right now - but I REALLY appreciate you folks who keep an eye on my page - Thank you.

  • A special shout out to a few folks, especially those who have been on the opposite side of the isle on occasion. User:Cassianto and User:SchroCat - it impresses me. :-) Thank you!!
  • and of course User:Sitush, Gerda, User:Linguist111, Montanabw, MarkA, User:Bbb23, and so many more. Usually folks are forgotten a week after they're gone - so it's really special to know a few folks remember me. :-)

OK - password is on a thumbdrive - but I likely won't be back any time soon as a registered user. My very best to all, and thank you for so much.

  • Ched
  • Take care Ched, miss you bud. Huntster (t @ c) 07:21, 26 August 2016 (UTC)
  • Yes, miss your common sense and kindness.(Littleolive oil (talk) 21:17, 26 August 2016 (UTC))
  • yes (see my talk for exiting news which has nothing to do with Wikipedia, going to sing Der 100. Psalm tomorrow!) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 21:28, 26 August 2016 (UTC)

Holiday card[edit]

Russell Xmas 1926.jpg
Wishing you a Charlie Russell Christmas,
"Here's hoping that the worst end of your trail is behind you
That Dad Time be your friend from here to the end
And sickness nor sorrow don't find you."

Editor of the Week seeking nominations (and a new facilitator)[edit]

The Editor of the Week initiative has been recognizing editors since 2013 for their hard work and dedication. Editing Wikipedia can be disheartening and tedious at times; the weekly Editor of the Week award lets its recipients know that their positive behaviour and collaborative spirit is appreciated. The response from the honorees has been enthusiastic and thankful.

The list of nominees is running short, and so new nominations are needed for consideration. Have you come across someone in your editing circle who deserves a pat on the back for improving article prose regularly, making it easier to understand? Or perhaps someone has stepped in to mediate a contentious dispute, and did an excellent job. Do you know someone who hasn't received many accolades and is deserving of greater renown? Is there an editor who does lots of little tasks well, such as cleaning up citations?

Please help us thank editors who display sustained patterns of excellence, working tirelessly in the background out of the spotlight, by submitting your nomination for Editor of the Week today!

In addition, the WikiProject is seeking a new facilitator/coordinator to handle the logistics of the award. Please contact L235 if you are interested in helping with the logistics of running the award in any capacity. Remove your name from here to unsubscribe from further EotW-related messages.
