Nominations for the Oak Leaves[edit]


@WP:MILHIST coordinators: I would like to nominate Hawkeye7 for the Wikichevrons with Oak-Leaves. Hawkeye was elected as a coordinator of the Milhist project in September 2011 and was re-elected each year until standing aside at the end of the last tranche after five years of service. I was surprised to see that he hadn't been nominated before given he's been onwiki for over eleven years. He has 50! FAs, 86 A-Class articles and 232 GAs to his credit... He was our 2012 Military historian of the year, and runner up in 2014. Having been involved in doing some of the coordinator drudge work before he developed Milhistbot, it has made the job of coordinator so much easier than it was, and he deserves this award just for that, let alone his content and coord work. His series of articles on the Manhattan Project continues to amaze me, and is making a really important contribution to the encyclopaedia... I could say plenty more, like the hundreds of DYKs etc, but you get the drift I'm sure... Regards, Peacemaker67 (click to talk to me) 09:28, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

  • Oppose -- too clever by half... Oh, all right, Support!! Actually, can we do an Oak Leaves and Bar all in one go...? Cheers, Ian Rose (talk) 09:49, 18 October 2016 (UTC)
  • Support - and what about Ian's idea? Parsecboy (talk) 09:54, 18 October 2016 (UTC)
  • Support: Definitely well deserved and a long time coming. I continue to remain in awe of Hawkeye's output, and the breadth of topics he covers. Regards, AustralianRupert (talk) 11:12, 18 October 2016 (UTC)
  • Support, and support Ian's idea as well. I'm glad to make this my first act since rejoining the coordinator team. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 11:16, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

@WP:MILHIST coordinators: I hereby nominate Nikkimaria for her second Wikichevrons with Oak-Leaves, her first being in September 2011 . Nikki has under her belt four terms as a project coordinator, twelve successful Featured Article nominations, and countless image and source checks as one of our most prolific reviewers at A-Class and Featured level. She is also a Featured Article Review coordinator and has been nominated as Military Historian of the Year three times, taking third place last year. I don't know how she manages to be in so many places at once, I'm just glad she is, for WP would be a much poorer place without her. Cheers, Ian Rose (talk) 11:12, 26 November 2016 (UTC)

  • Support: agreed, Nikki is a fantastic contributor to the project who is a positive influence on the review process and thoroughly deserved of recognition. Thanks for all you do, Nikki. Regards, AustralianRupert (talk) 12:02, 26 November 2016 (UTC)
  • Not to mention her invaluable work with the Wikipedia Library. This is an easy support. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 12:28, 26 November 2016 (UTC)
  • One of the very best Wikipedians, in all regards. - Dank (push to talk) 12:40, 26 November 2016 (UTC)
  • You had me at Nikkimaria :) TomStar81 (Talk) 13:46, 26 November 2016 (UTC)
  • Easy Support for her contribs. Iazyges Consermonor Opus meum 14:25, 26 November 2016 (UTC)
  • Support Our paths seldom cross, but count me in. --Lineagegeek (talk) 18:22, 26 November 2016 (UTC)
  • Support - per Ian's nomination statement, certainly deserving of further recognition. Anotherclown (talk) 02:57, 27 November 2016 (UTC)
  • Support - as above. Zawed (talk) 04:33, 27 November 2016 (UTC)
  • Support Hawkeye7 (talk) 10:19, 27 November 2016 (UTC)
  • Support. Kirill Lokshin (talk) 17:20, 27 November 2016 (UTC)
    • Awarded -- not sure if former coords (as opposed to Coord Emeritus) are strictly entitled to a say (old habits die hard!) but a clear majority of the current tranche are in agreement anyway... ;-) Cheers, Ian Rose (talk) 03:24, 28 November 2016 (UTC)
      • If it makes any difference, I'd have formally supported if I had been around over the weekend :) Parsecboy (talk) 13:09, 28 November 2016 (UTC)

Nominations for the A-Class Medal[edit]

A-Class Medal nominations are initiated when an editor first achieves three successful A-class nominations, and for every third subsequent successful A-class nomination. These medal nominations need at least two coordinators' votes to succeed; the role of the second (and any subsequent) coordinators is only to verify that the editor is due to receive this medal in order to prevent accidental awards. Once an A-Class Medal has been awarded, add it to the A-Class Medal page.

Am I missing something/wrong/going crazy? Regards, AustralianRupert (talk) 06:42, 16 September 2017 (UTC)
