    Thank you for your intervention in Ghghyo's rather torrid introduction to life at Wikipedia. It isn't nice when automated tasks and mindsets (inadvertently) add up to WP:BITE. So thanks for taking the time at the user's talk page. hamiltonstone (talk) 03:33, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

    For "taking care of" (for want of a better phrase) of the stub Her Fearful Symmetry. Your edits do not go unnoticed. Take care!--Delta1989 (talk) 01:38, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

    For your great work in doing non-admin AfD closures and relisting debates and your overall work in the deletion area of Wikipedia, I award you the Original Barnstar. Your hard work definitely takes some of the pressure and workload off of our continually shrinking team of admins. Great work and keep it up, Tim! Timmeh 03:29, 14 November 2009 (UTC)

    Regardless of my opinion on the way I feel the situation should have been handled, your action was boldness personified. too many admins sit on their hands, afraid to do what needs to be done, when it needs to be done. You took the path less traveled and made a difficult decision that needed to be made. Bravo. Trusilver 21:20, 12 September 2011 (UTC)

    Association of Wikipedians Who Dislike Making Broad Judgments About the Worthiness of a General Category of Article, and Who Are in Favor of the Deletion of Some Particularly Bad Articles, but That Doesn't Mean They Are Deletionists


    Est omnino difficile iudicare inclusionis meritum cuiusdam rei in encyclopædia cum ratio sciendi quid populi referat incerta sit, sed nihilominus aliquid encyclopædiam dedecet

    It is generally difficult to judge the worthiness of a particular topic for inclusion in an encyclopedia considering that there is no certain way to know what interests people, but some topics nevertheless are not fit for an encyclopedia.

    This motto reflects the desire of these Wikipedians to be reluctant, but not entirely unwilling, to remove articles from Wikipedia.
