First edit of 2011[edit]

Random comment: I am a member of the central time zone, where 2011 has just begun about an hour ago. I was curious, so I looked at Wikipedia's recent changes to see the first edit of the year, and it turns out this edit by you is the first one! It appears from your editing interests that you are also a member of the central time zone, so congratulations on bringing the award home. Happy new year! Hope it's a great one!--Dudemanfellabra (talk) 07:06, 1 January 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the note, nice homepage. That was eastern time though. Happy New Year. Thomas Paine1776 (talk) 20:25, 1 January 2011 (UTC)

Photograph requests[edit]

Hi! Are you willing to take photographs of Metro Detroit for Wikipedia? There are some photo requests if you are interested WhisperToMe (talk) 05:56, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

Glad you're back[edit]

Good to see you're back. I did notice that the first thing you did was to remove all references to your topic ban from the Trump-related material. That's your right, of course, but you should be aware that the record of it remains anyway, and blanking it all out could seem like you're trying to hide something. I'd personally have left it there, but that's just me.

Anyway, glad to see you're back. Rockypedia (talk) 23:52, 11 July 2016 (UTC)
