More than 26,000 edits in 16 months?! That's crazy! I thought having 14,055 in 2017 (my first year) was nuts...that's insane! I had less than 21,000 when I became an admin in 2018. Here, take my barnstar! You deserve it. Good work, seriously! TheSandDoctor Talk 23:33, 3 August 2022 (UTC)
The Anti-Vandalism Barnstar
You deserve all the barnstars you get. I have made less than half of the edits you have made, yet I have more barnstars. You deserve more recognition. Keep up the good work! (talk) 23:33, 7 August 2022 (UTC)
