I came here via your editor review, Sodacan. While I originally intended too, I'm figuring out I won't be able to hash out a full review for you but I do see that you are sorely in need of the graphic designers barnstar. I would hope that you have already gotten much thanks for your work, but here is just another small token for you. Real quality man! jorgenev 18:48, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

Request for input at Thai royal funeral[edit]

Hi. There's discussion on whether the Thai royal prefixes phra and phra boromma should be used in article text, and how to spell merumat/merumas, at Talk:Thai royal funeral#Spelling and treatment of Thai royal terms. Since you do quite a bit of work on Thai royal customs-related articles, your input would be appreciated. Thanks. --Paul_012 (talk) 23:43, 22 October 2018 (UTC)

May I ask for help?[edit]

Sawasdee khrap, Mr.Sodacan. I would like to ask about the coat of arms you have done beautifully. I'm Chester from Thailand. I'm an English teacher who has been teaching in a school named Nonsungsritani School which is 40 kms far away from the downtown of Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand. I'm the head of the intensive English program and I really love the arts of the coat of arms around the world. Now, I have no ideas who in Thailand can help me in making the coat of arms for my special program and school. Finally, I come to contact you here. Excuse me, can you please kindly help me for making the coat of arm? May I have the details for the pay you would like to get in making a coat of arm following my idea? My school name is Nonsungsritani which means The school located on the high hill which is honored to the city. My inspirational coat of arm is the British coat of arm which the animals stand on the hill (right?). How could I contact you to talk over about this idea? Could you please help me? Thank you so much. Sincerely, Chester.

Request for Help: Speakers of the House of Commons[edit]

Dear Sodacan

Recently I have attempted to create an article listing the heraldic achievements of speakers of the British House of Commons, based on similar articles about the armorials of various heads of state and government. The draft has twice been turned down by administrators. As a significant contributor to articles relating to heraldry, your assistance would be most valuable.
