A Barnstar!
The Original Barnstar

I don't know how you feel about these Barnstar thingies, but I felt that, considering your contributions and seemingly tireless work (and the fact that you need to seek a Real Life™), you needed to be recognised as a valuable contributor to Wikipedia. Congrats! Mal 14:52, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

The da Vinci Barnstar
Through the WikiProject Biography Spring 2007 Assessment Drive, 44,324 articles were assessed, reducing the number of unassessed articles by an astounding 33% - from 135,345 to 91,021. In addition, many of the assessed articles further were linked to the appropriate work groups, significantly improving the chance that these articles will be improved. Without the assistance of the bots/scripts and rapid technical responses by Outriggr and yourself, the assessment drive would not have achieved such significant results. For your enhancement of Wikipedia through your technical work in the assessment drive, WikiProject Biography Spring 2007 Assessment Drive hereby awards you The da Vinci Barnstar. -- 17:47, 3 April 2007 (UTC)
