Notable Wikproject Saskatchewan Editors and their contributions
|These are Wikipedians who have been noticed by the Saskatchewan WikiProject for their great contributions to Wikipedia's coverage of Saskatchewan and have been awarded the Saskatchewan Wikipedia Project Ribbon for their user page. It is an honour to congratulate the following wikipedia contributors for their notable achievements.|
- Ultraflame (talk · contribs) is an editor and a guiding light on wikipedia for the Saskatchewan Roads and highways wikiproject. Ultraflame has added reliable and well written Saskatchewan articles, and templates opening up wikipedia to the numerous roads and highways of Saskatchewan. As Saskatchewan has more road and highway kilometers than most other Canadian provinces, his leadership is quite an undertaking. In a very challenging era on wikipedia, highway and road articles are subject to higher scrutiny, criticism, policy and convention changes than most wikipedia articles, and throughout all of these ongoing discussions, Ultraflame has been an honourable example for editors of Saskatchewan articles to follow these footsteps. Besides the enormity of articles created and updated for the Saskatchewan Roads and highways wikiproject, Ultraflame also edits and creates other Saskatchewan and wikipedia articles. nominated by SriMesh | talk 05:13, 25 October 2007 (UTC) November 2007 Newsletter
