Hiya Folkie. Just dropping by to say ... don't give up hope on this one; Robin Pecknold might be notable enough to rate an article in Wikipedia. You just have to be careful about two things: don't copy web content into Wikipedia (unless with permission, and not even then, very often), and when you write the article, stress his current awards and honors. - Dan Dank55 (push to talk) 23:58, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
