Barnstar for you![edit]

Original Barnstar Hires.png The Original Barnstar
I award you, this, the original barnstar, because you're an original and deserve the first and the best!

Dom, this is a long-time coming from me. And I don't completely buy into the whole barnstar thing, so you know it's heart-felt. ;)

I remember the first time I interacted with you on this project, when you asked me to review one of your roller coaster article. I went, "Who the heck is this young guy?" at first, and to be honest, I was a little worried because I made some assumptions about you, which I quickly figured out were unfair and very wrong. You're an impressive young man, and I'm sure that you'll knock it out of the park at university and end up being more successful than the rest of us. Keep up with the work ethic and have fun! I hope that you'll be around to at least check in and keep us updated about how you're doing. Good luck! Christine (Figureskatingfan) (talk) 23:12, 6 September 2015 (UTC)

Hey Dom! Thanks so much for being so awesome and interacting with me during these 2 years. I remember working with you on GA mentoring and now I've become a GA Cup Judge. Good luck with university and thank you for being such a great friend. MrWooHoo (talk) 01:24, 8 September 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Today's featured article/January 9, 2016[edit]

Dom, a summary of a Featured Article you nominated at WP:FAC will appear on the Main Page soon. It mostly follows the lead section; how does it look? One question: Drop tower#Tallest vertical drop towers says this is the 3rd tallest tower in the US, but your article says it's the tallest. Do you know which is right? - Dank (push to talk) 22:02, 24 December 2015 (UTC)

(talk page stalker)The claim that it is the tallest "free-standing" drop tower in the U.S. is correct. The other two that are taller were built onto the frame of existing roller coasters. A technicality of course, but correct nonetheless! By the way, I removed the amusement park wikilink from the lead, since it was unnecessary and contributed to a bit of overlinking. Perhaps the same change should be made in the FA summary. --GoneIn60 (talk) 07:44, 26 December 2015 (UTC)
Thanks, I've looked into both and I get it now. - Dank (push to talk) 14:44, 26 December 2015 (UTC)
