Its time for me to retire this account. Its been an absolutely wonderful experience, and I've learned a great deal from an assortment of intelligent people, but I have several ideas that I want to develop into books, which I'll never get around to if I spend my free time editing Wikipedia. To quote David Gilmour, "It isn't to do with animosity or anything like that. It's just ... I've been there, I've done it." Thanks to all the encouraging editors who helped me become a better writer. I'll now apply the skills that I've learned here to my own end. Kudos to those who defend the project; its certainly a worthwhile cause, and we should be proud of our contributions to its development. GabeMc (talk|contribs) 00:00, 22 June 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for quality articles, such as Imagine, a "world at peace, without the divisiveness and barriers of borders, religions and nationalities, to consider the possibility that the focus of humanity should be living a life unattached to material possessions", - you are an awesome Wikipedian!

If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
