Since they don't have a Giordano's spinach pie I can give you under food and drink, here's an original barnstar. Great additions to Polaner-- from a former Chicago resident (Hyde Park, then Lakeview)! Jokestress (talk) 06:18, 10 January 2013 (UTC)

Your debating style in the conversation over the correct title for the Nisour Square incident/shooting/massacre indicates an ability for level headed discourse in the face of disagreement. While we don't see eye-to-eye, your cogent and dispassionate reasoning regarding the matter at hand is duly noted, and duly appreciated. NickCT (talk) 13:12, 26 June 2015 (UTC)
Thanks, appreciate it! Glad we could we were able to work it out. Meatsgains (talk) 17:40, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

Updating networth[edit]

I'm not doubting that it is well intentioned, but there is no need to update the net worth of Wang Jianlin, Stefan Persson (magnate) and others ever two days. Forbes updates them in real time using some sort of algorithmic model to value their assets; we don't need that level of precision. After all, they are only estimates. In any event, prefacing them with either "increase" and "decrease" is meaningless and possibly misleading, especially without giving the reader any sense of a timeframe. We use it for companies, as they have fixed reporting periods. And if you are going to update this info, then you also need to change the "accessdate" parameter.

I've created lots of articles on other billionaires, and many are sorely in need of expansion - such editing would be much more useful! Edwardx (talk) 10:13, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

Every month or two I typically go through Forbes' list of richest people in the world and update individuals' net worth. In reference to the using the "increase" and "decrease" arrows, I am not the one who started doing that, I am just following suit and mirroring other related articles. The access date info will be changed in future edits. Thanks, Meatsgains (talk) 16:06, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
