Hey, it’s April 2nd! With that in mind, I present to you a user who routinely knocks my socks off. Purpilia always seems to be working on something --- his name appears on the recent changes quite often, and the associated kb increase is almost always in bolded green. For six years, he has been boldly updating countless articles by adding huge chunks of well-written and sourced info --- a very short list of articles that owe much of their current level of detail to Purpilia includes Saesee Tiin, Coleman Kcaj, Sly Moore, Imperial Palace, Eeth Koth, Theed, and Stass Allie. And that's just scratching the surface of his 22,000+ edits, over 16,000 of which are in the mainspace.
Back in late 2008, Purpilia was one of the first Wookieepedians to take on the intimidating task of updating "Sources" sections when The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia was released, covering all of Volume I. Three years later, he's been just as quick to take on the gigantic world of TOR: his user page currently consists solely of a big list of redlinks from The Old Republic that he's been slowly filling in and uploading images for.
Looking at Purpilia's talk page does reveal a block history, but in all honesty, I see that as a benefit to this nomination rather than a detriment. He didn't let some missteps along the way deter him from staying true to a dedication to improving the quality of Wookieepedia and the scope of its coverage. Purpilia is a user who just keeps on going, and I wish I had the same level of energy and dedication that he does. Menkooroo 01:10, April 2, 2012 (UTC)
Gotta support Purpulia this month, though both Purp and Tinwe are outstanding contributors. -- Riffsyphon1024 03:53, April 2, 2012 (UTC)
Same reasons as last month's nomination. Tinwe has been here forever and is currently a very active and helpful contributor, writing comprehensive articles and helping with the Jedi Council Forums move. She deserves WOTM now and she has deserved it many months in the past. graestan(talk) 03:04, April 2, 2012 (UTC)
DD97 has been a solid, consistent, and incredibly helpful contributor to Wookieepedia for more than five years. When I recently needed help on locating a factoid in a Star Wars book, I noticed on his talk page that it was not the first time I'd hit him up for such info. Indeed, I was surprised to see that despite five years of constant contributions to the site, Dan had yet to be selected for this award. But check his contributions: Dan's constantly at it, answering questions on the Knowledge Bank, adding sources and appearances to articles, correcting errors in articles, updating pages on new releases, and generally doing a lot of the kind of work that goes unsung but is essential to keep us looking current and professional. He may not have a slew of FAs or GAs to his name, but he's the kind of user who simply allows this site to function. It's high time he got the recognition he deserves. I'm happy to nominate him for this award. ~Savage 03:13, April 12, 2012 (UTC)
For basically everything Bob pointed out. - JMASHey, it's me! 21:03, April 15, 2012 (UTC)
