On the occasion of you receiving a new mop and bucket from Wikipedia's inventory, I, Ezhiki, also present you with this VD486i Vedroid to assist you in your new administrative clean-up duties. Take care of it well for it's an expensive piece of equipment. As a "controversial administrator" you now also have the right to borrow the communal wheelbarrow for the occasions when you need to push POV :)
On behalf of all thankful Wikipedians I award you this Ukrainian Order of Saint Nicholas Thaumaturgus (Ukrainian: Орден Святого Миколи Чудотворця) 2nd class (the 1st class being awarded yet only to Микола himself). This is in recognition of your contribution in the "augment of the common good" ("За примноження добра на Землі") as per the order statute . Thank you! --Irpen 05:59, 7 January 2006 (UTC)

You are honest, and objective. You helped me when i already thought there are no honest administrators left, and as i can see by your page i'm not the first one you help to. Thank you for that, and remember, anytime you need support or help here, you can turn to me. M.V.E.i. 10:31, 3 August 2007 (UTC)

Hi, I was born in Saint-Petersburg Russia, lived and worked there for the best half of my life, then worked in the USA at the UIUC. I then moved to Australia to work for Moldflow (currently Autodesk Moldflow). I am earning my living as a plastic engineer but interested in aspects of human culture and God's wisdom. If you understand Russian language you can read my livejournal at Or on IRC as Alex Bakharev/abakharev.

I am an admin on English Wikipedia, if you want me to be recalled here is the instruction how to do it in four easy steps.

For your exemplary handling of both your first and second RfAs on top of the rest you have done for Wikipedia, I, Irpen, hereby award you the Order of Friendship of Peoples, as per statute, "for accomplishments in strengthening of inter-ethnic and international friendship and cooperation" in Wikipedia. The wide international support you received is the best proof of these accomplishments.

Distribution of Elephants and Materialization of Ghosts 3[edit]

User:Khoikhoi got Order of Friendship of Peoples, as per statute, "for accomplishments in strengthening of inter-ethnic and international friendship and cooperation". It was a relatively minor Order in the Soviet Union, but I regard it as one of the highest awards on Wikipedia

Distribution of Elephants and Materialization of Ghosts 4[edit]

Distribution of Elephants and Materialization of Ghosts 8[edit]

Lets celebrate one year of my mop: It looks like it was an infinite time ago.
