Wikivoyage:Celebrate a contribution

This is the place where you can share news of your completed piece of work — and invite the community to celebrate your milestone in contributing to Wikivoyage.

  • We normally celebrate something that required at least a couple of hours of work, and has very significant effect on one article, significant effect on a tree of articles, or affects the entire site. So if you recently completed a significant effort at Wikivoyage, go ahead and tell the rest of us here. Let's have a little party to share the satisfaction of a job well done!
  • This is a party among friends and colleagues, let your hair down. Notifications can reflect your personal style and character, and the type of contribution you have just completed.
  • You may also celebrate the work of another Wikivoyager here, if it is worthy of public comment or thanks, but perhaps not significant enough for a barncompass yet.
  • The proper place to add a new celebration is at the bottom of the list. An appropriate image is optional.
  • Always sign your new item with your registered user name, but anonymous comments are acceptable if appropriate.

10000th edit! edit

@Ground Zero, Ikan Kekek, ThunderingTyphoons!, LPfi, SelfieCity, LivelyRatification,, DaGizza, FredTC, Wauteurz, AlasdairW, Antandrus, Pashley, Vaticidalprophet: Just passed my 10000th edit, and I just wanted to say thank you to all of you for helping me get here. My time here at Wikivoyage was a lot more enjoyable than I thought, and I'm not leaving for a couple of years to come.

I truly have to say that Wikivoyage is much better than Wikipedia, and to say, Wikipedia receives more vandalism than total edits on this wiki. The small community also makes it a fun, enjoyable and most importantly successful wiki. Saw crocs at a creek. Write it, and someone else may enjoy the pleasure as well.

Thankfully, my 10000th edit was much better than my 5000th or ThunderingTyphoons!' one. Well, to celebrate, I chose to expand my first edit.

And finally, thanks again for guiding, and assisting me to where I am. I have yet plenty of Strayan destinations to do, and there's yet more to do for me. SHB2000 (talk | contribs | en.wikipedia) 07:32, 21 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Congrats SHB! I do agree on Wikivoyage being a friendlier and more relaxed environment than the 'pedia. While we have our own set of rules, there are overall fewer rules with more freedom and flexibility given to editors when writing articles, especially travel topics. Gizza (roam) 07:42, 21 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Especially the non existence of the original research rule. Also explains why I've only wrote three stubs there (enwiki) :) SHB2000 (talk | contribs | en.wikipedia) 07:44, 21 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks for being so helpful on this site. That in itself is something to celebrate! Ikan Kekek (talk) 08:30, 21 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you! This tells me I've made a lot more edits than I thought. SHB2000 (talk | contribs | en.wikipedia) 08:43, 21 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Congratulations and thanks for the continued hard work and generosity with your time. :-) --ThunderingTyphoons! (talk) 09:01, 21 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks. I've a lot more spare time in winter compared to summer, so hence I did a thousand edits in a week. :) SHB2000 (talk | contribs | en.wikipedia) 09:06, 21 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It’s been amazing to watch how quickly you’ve earned your place as a valued member of the community and helped in every possible way with great enthusiasm. Well deserved! --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 10:20, 21 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks mate :). I still do regret editing as an IP user for 9 months though, :( although that was more content based and more towards enwiki. SHB2000 (talk | contribs | en.wikipedia) 11:04, 21 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Congratulations, my friend! We're happy to have you. Also, can I just say, it's an achievement in and of itself to match my own 4,800 edits over six years within four months, only to double it within two more months. I think it's fair to say that you're in a league of your own. Keep up the good work! -- Wauteurz (talk) 12:16, 21 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks Wauteurz. To be fair, I've had a lot more spare time in recent months, partly due to Covid, and partly due to an injury (minor). Not sure if I'll hit 20000 by the end of this year, but it's definitely a lot quicker than I thought. After all, I thought I was going to hit 1000 edits only by Spring (aka September to November not Mar - May), but no, I rather did that amount in just a week.

Congratulations! Your contributions have made Wikivoyage much better, and your participation has made Wikivoyage more fun. I'm glad you're choosing to spend time with us. Ground Zero (talk) 12:53, 21 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you. What's great here is there's a sense of community here, but on enwiki, you're likely to spot a user one, and then you probably won't see them for a while on RC. (although I see a certain user always doing some anti-vandalism work there). SHB2000 (talk | contribs | en.wikipedia) 12:58, 21 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Congratulations! You have been busy, and done a lot of useful stuff. AlasdairW (talk) 21:55, 21 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you Alasdair! SHB2000 (talk | contribs | en.wikipedia) 21:59, 21 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Amazing work! Keep it up, and thanks for all your input and help over the past few months. --LivelyRatification (talk) 00:50, 22 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks mate. It has certainly been a more enjoyable experience than initially thought SHB2000 (talk | contribs | en.wikipedia) 01:11, 22 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

10,000th edit edit

Here is my horn: 🎺. Toot toot! I have hit my 10,000th Wikivoyage edit since I started contributing in January 2013. My total Wikimedia project edits are over 20,600. Ricardo 2500 My current "project" is improving Outline Portugal articles to Usable (or merely upgrading the status template on already eligible articles). You can see stats from a little bit ago at User:Nelson Ricardo 2500/Portugal article status. This is what the stats looked like when I began tracking: --Nelson Ricardo (talk) 02:30, 27 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Congratulations Nelson. Well deserved. You've been a great contributor to this site, and coincidentally, I've aye a similar initiative to you. (improving outline Australian articles to usable). SHB2000 (talk | contribs | en.wikipedia) 02:39, 27 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Wow! We really appreciate your contributions to Wikivoyage, and keep up the great work! --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 13:07, 27 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Meus parabéns! Thank you for all the edits over the years. Blow that horn! --ThunderingTyphoons! (talk) 15:41, 27 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
