Sádar ý 2008! Happy New Year! --Uswibèta 09:35, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

Good work

Just wanted to say good work around here. :-) I hope you will decide to contribute more often, but I know you're pretty busy, so I'll understand if you can't. Cheers! – RyanCross (talk) 03:54, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

Well, I'm hoping to expand my contributions to more projects, and I'm finding lots of areas to work my wikignome magic; I think I'll be around for a little while. ;) EVula // talk // 05:01, 9 December 2008 (UTC)
Ah, good to hear. :-) – RyanCross (talk) 06:05, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

A well-deserved barnstar

Barnstar Congratulations: You have been given a Barnstar!

This is for all your hard work editing, especially with {{other wikis}}. American Eagle (talk) 00:05, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

Haha, thank you! I think this might be my very first barnstar on a project other than the English Wikipedia. :D EVula // talk // 00:12, 14 December 2008 (UTC)
*Wonders why Special:GlobalBarnstar is redlinked* PeterSymonds (talk) 00:20, 14 December 2008 (UTC)
Hahaha, that'd be an excellent global configuration to have. Now to go ask about it at bugzilla. ;) EVula // talk // 00:23, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

Your article

Actually, all I did was use an en dash instead of a dash, added " " around the quote, change "compliment" (complex), and remove the extra Category:Greeks – all very minor fixes. The article was good, and you're welcome. ;) American Eagle (talk) 23:16, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

Question

Hi, are there any articles that need creating before others because they are more important? Thanks. Yotcmdr 17:11, 20 December 2008 (UTC)

Really, anything is of value; at Wikiquote:Simple talk#Statistics and Goals v.2, I suggested we focus on creating the articles found on {{USPresidents}}, since that would be a sure-fire way to make it to 300 articles. But any article is helpful. :) EVula // talk // 17:32, 20 December 2008 (UTC)
Thanks, Yotcmdr 17:35, 20 December 2008 (UTC)

Congratulations! You are an administrator

I just closed your RfA as successful and made you an administrator. Congratulations! Coppertwig(talk) 02:01, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

Congratulations. :) Welcome to the team. — RyanCross (talk) 02:20, 12 January 2009 (UTC)
Woohoo! Thanks to everyone that supported me. :) EVula // talk // // 03:16, 12 January 2009 (UTC)
Well, I guess I did all I could to stand in the way. But, you made it, congrats, EVula! (watches your every move, has WQ:AOR all written and read to go if need be ;) American Eagle (talk) 03:37, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

Talking

Maybe I should have answered you when you said this. See what I said to Razorflame. Let me know if you would like more of an answer. Coppertwig(talk) 20:13, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

Communication is always a good thing; not saying anything just compounded the whole "I'm not doing anything" attitude, which is why I interpreted your silence the way I did (not closing = not promoting). EVula // talk // // 22:13, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
I'm sorry it looked that way. Maybe I should have answered. I think that sometimes silence is good, though.
Trying to make things clear: if you still need an answer, which comment(s) would you like me to answer?
Because you were talking about it with Spacebirdy at meta, I thought you might like a link to the discussion about American Eagle's first RfB. It's here in the Simple talk archives. Coppertwig(talk) 01:23, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

RfB thanks

Thank you for voting in my request of bureaucratship (yes, I can spell that now :P). RyanCross has closed the request has "successful" and I have now been granted the bureaucrat flag. Special thanks to my nom, Razorflame. I was not expecting to pass (as I have less support % than my previous RfB). But, I greatly thank you all for this opportunity, I do not plan to let you down. In fact, I promise to do my very best not to. :) God bless, TheAE talk 03:58, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

Congrats! And don't worry; it wasn't until halfway thru my first enwiki RfB that I was finally able to spell "bureaucrat" correctly. ;) EVula // talk // // 05:49, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
