You did an excellent job on Luis Guillermo Solís. I am impressed by your editing skills. Happy editing and keep up the good work! ComputerJA () 03:20, 6 April 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, ComputerJA! This really means a lot. You and a couple of other editors left me these barnstars and they really give me motivation. It might seem a little childish, but it's true. Getting a little recognition from people I don't know goes a long way and really makes me want to keep working!! Mvblair (talk) 22:42, 18 May 2014 (UTC)

Flag of Costa Rica.svg The Costa Rica Award of National Merit
Always exciting to see a quality contributor working on countries like Costa Rica. Keep up the great work! Hope to see WP:Good Articles on the Provinces of Costa Rica and major cities and people and that! ♦ Dr. Blofeld 16:04, 10 May 2014 (UTC)

My cousin's family is Costa Rican. He's British and a tree geneticist but his wife is Honduran and his children were born in and grew up in Costa Rica and hold Costa Rican national identity. Priority I think is to get get some of the stubs on Provinces up to a resourceful state, same with much of Latin America and Africa I think.♦ Dr. Blofeld 13:06, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

It's a beautiful country if you ever get the chance, User talk:Dr. Blofeld. The small towns and cities are just wonderful places. I agree that most of the province pages need a tremendous amount of work. Your encouragement really gave me a lot of energy, so I think I will start working on Alajuela this week! You're either a great motivator or very manipulative!! Hah, hah!! Mvblair (talk) 20:51, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
Let me know if you need some assistance. I'll be glad to help as I'm sure User:Rosiestep would be. Provinces and regions I think are one of the areas needing most expansion on wikipedia. Most of the articles in Latin America, Asia and Africa on them are stubs or seriously deficient. I think they're very important because they constitute such large areas. One of our overall project goals I think should be to get every first level division in the world up to minimum start class on wikipedia. Anything you can do with Costa Rica towards it would be warmly welcome. I started an article a while back on Coffee production in Costa Rica but it soon attracted a tag for updating and a stub on Tronadora. I did a fair bit of work on Costa Rica a while back and thought how beautiful it looked back then!♦ Dr. Blofeld 14:32, 12 May 2014 (UTC)
Yes, for sure, I'd be glad to assist. --Rosiestep (talk) 14:44, 12 May 2014 (UTC)
Wonderful! Thank you, Rosiestep and Dr. Blofeld! Perhaps a good start might be to translate some sections from the Spanish articles about the provinces. I will start doing that for Alajuela and then see where we go from there. By the way, Blofeld, I enjoyed the article about Coffee production. I have come across it many times before! Mvblair (talk) 15:51, 12 May 2014 (UTC)
Rosiestep and Dr. Blofeld, thanks to your encouragement, I just did what I think is a pretty substantial update to the Alajuela Province article. It felt really nice to have you two encourage it!! Mvblair (talk) 20:17, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for all the work you've done on Alajuela Province, Mvblair. The article looks awesome! Rosiestep (talk) 05:02, 17 May 2014 (UTC)

Excellent yup. One thing though, can you format dates like 17 May 2014 rather than 5/12/14? accessdate: 5/15/2014 should be Retrieved 15 May 2014 I think; I think it looks tidier. Also you might consider using Template:Cite web for consistency. You can paste google book urls into http://reftag.appspot.com/ .♦ Dr. Blofeld 06:22, 17 May 2014 (UTC)

Hah, hah!! The Alajuela Barnstar! I love it!! I'm very proud to have it. Dr. B, I will change the "acessdates." Good call on that. The ones that are incorrectly formatted are ones that I used the "Firefox Wikipedia Ref Grab" extension for. It's an outdated extension that is nice for lazy folks like me. :) Mvblair (talk) 22:34, 18 May 2014 (UTC)

DYK for Alajuela Province[edit]

Hello! I have approved your DYK nomination for Alajuela Province - nice article! But I do have one suggestion. Since you are putting the photo of the sheet metal church in the DYK, I think it should appear in the text of the article near the information about the church - rather than way down in the gallery. Just a suggestion, and the article is good to go either way. --MelanieN (talk) 14:21, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

Thanks so much for saying the article was nice, MelanieN. I took a lot of time writing it, so I know it wasn't easy to go through for you, but it is much appreciated! I rearranged the pictures and put the sheet metal church next to the info about it. Thank you! Mvblair (talk) 14:30, 4 June 2014 (UTC)
