A heroic achievement ... thanks Armbrust. - Dank (push to talk) 02:33, 9 June 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Seconded. It's quite glorious when presented this way, over months. More interesting than many things that have their own quarterly print publication. – SJ + 05:15, 9 June 2017 (UTC)[reply]
I'd like to see fewer of them at a time. By the way, why is it not mentioned that Peter Dinklage is short? That influences the type roles he can gat.— Vchimpanzee • talk • contributions • 15:34, 14 June 2017 (UTC)[reply]

I'm not sure you received my email thanking you Armbrust (no access to the mailbox I sent it from), so I'll thank you again! I've used your work as the basis for a more detailed analysis of the successful FA nominations in the last quarter. Using your initial work, I've further organized the articles based on subject matter and noted the "importance" levels indicated on the talk page for each (most articles overall are of either low or mid importance on different projects).
The only talk page indicating a successful FA nomination of a top-importance article was strangely the article Monnow Bridge for project MonmouthPedia. Check the categorization out, did well by "boats" & "birds" these last months, but didn't do that well closing the gender gap. SashiRolls (talk) 22:39, 20 June 2017 (UTC)[reply]
