Quick question[edit]

Hi Guyinblack25,
WP:VG's Newsletter department is looking for editors to interview for our Featured Editor column, and your name has come up in discussions during previous quarters as a likely candidate. From your edit history it is apparent that you are not currently as active an editor as you once were, and it's completely understandable if you don't have the time to be interviewed any more. But if possible, we'd love to hear your story from you.
The interview consists of some 15 questions that you can answer however you like and which you can tinker with up until the newsletter is published. Our hope is to have a small number of interviewees cued up for upcoming Featured Editor columns so your interview would most likely appear in a future issue. You can review previous interview questions here to get a sense of the kinds of questions you would be asked. If you see this note, please let me know at my talk page if you would be willing to answer some questions for the Newsletter. Thanks! -Thibbs (talk) 14:21, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

OK sorry about the delay. The interview has been posted here. It's not due until next quarter which is in early October, so you can definitely take your time. Thank you for agreeing to help out. You've been a real force within the project and I'm glad we'll have this chance to catch up with you! -Thibbs (talk) 16:09, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
I noticed you finished up the interview now. It sounds like you've got a good thing going on in your wiki-retirement. Definitely something worth retiring for. :) Thanks again for your help and stay tuned for the Oct. 1 publication of the newsletter. -Thibbs (talk) 12:29, 25 September 2014 (UTC)

List of Pac-Man games[edit]

Hey Guyinblack! Long time, no talk!

I hope life is good. I know you're retired (and I basically am too) but I figured I'd send you a ping. I'd be willing to come out of retirement one last time to really work on that list of Pac-Man video games we were planning to collaborate on to bring it to FL status. If you leave me a note on my talk page, it goes to my e-mail so I'll come back on to respond. It's no big deal if you can't right away, I'm busy out of my mind with work, but if you get the chance just let me know!

Hope all is well. Nomader (talk) 00:07, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Special Barnstar Hires.png The Special Barnstar
My dear sir, though I've read that you have retired, I feel the need to give my thanks to your great work on wikipedia. I would have given you an original barnstar, but I'd like to thank you for your work on Monkey Island and Day of the Tentacle in particular, and felt I needed to sent you a special thanks for that. It is often that one sees a good movie or plays a good game and looks those up on wikipedia to see someone else has made a great effort in providing you with an enormous amount of information regarding the topic. Well I grew up with these games and seeing that an editor has made these articles into GAs makes me very happy, even more, it makes me hopefull that there are still people out there that enjoy these games (perhaps a market for more of them in the future). Anyhow, a lot of compliments for you, working on wikipedia may sometimes seem to be something you do more for yourself than for others (sometimes), yet that's not the case here, so once again, on behalf of all Dutch LucasArts adventure game fans (or those I can speak on the behalf of) you have done great work! Thank you. --Music26/11 21:14, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
