|I've signed up for a multi-year distance learning course and will be giving it first priority from now on. I'm not retiring from Wikipedia, which I care too much about, but my future contribution here will mostly be small-scale gnoming. In particular, I plan to steer clear of places and activities where drama tends to break out. I'll check my (very small) watchlist most days, but please understand if I'm slow to reply from now on. Thanks. --Stfg (talk) 14:16, 27 August 2015 (UTC)|

I wanted to thank you for supporting my candidacy for assistant coordinator at GOCE, but in spite of searching for a while in the Revision History, I could not find your edit, even though it appears in the list of votes. So, I came here to thank you. Good luck in your course. – Corinne (talk) 02:26, 20 June 2016 (UTC)
- Hi Corinne. I was glad to support your candidacy, and it's me who should thank you for offering your services. I hope you'll enjoy doing it. (The edit in question is the one with the edit summary "sss", standing for three supports). Best wishes, Simon --Stfg (talk) 08:47, 20 June 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for correcting and amending the Article Donald W. Loveland. You or the unknown editor came up with verifying sources that I would never have found; sources within Duke University. I am impressed. (I would have provided pointers to the sources I suggested in my talk note.) I appreciate the trouble taken to improve the article. WmLovel (talk) 00:27, 29 August 2016 (UTC)
