Thank you[change source]

I won't wish you luck, instead I'll hope for your abundant blessings. It is always good when we are shown something that causes us to rethink ourselves, keeps us "new". I've done that a few times myself, changed my direction that is... but this we can continue in email, if you like. :)

I want to also thank you for your hard work and contributions to this project. The hours you have donated have made this project richer. Please take care of yourself. Very best, Jon. (NonvocalScream (talk))

ps: I removed the simple news on your talk, I'm sorry, it was messing up the page format. :( I'll reformat it and replace it on your talk if you wish :) NonvocalScream (talk) 03:04, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Thanks, scream. It was nice getting to know you. :D Thanks also for removing/fixing SN, it can stay off for now, I can see the page archive if I need it. God bless, American Eagle (talk) 03:09, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
May God bless you. Even though we are of different faiths, I know for sure that God enjoys your presence. :-) Meetare Shappy Cunkelfratz! 20:20, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

Request for Adminship[change source]

hello! how do I request to be an admin?, thanks! Bubblycanuck (talk) 16:18, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

Retired?[change source]

I hope this two edits will the start of an come back? Barras (talk) 16:44, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

Haha, but no. I just don't have the same passion for Wikipedia that I had before. I have a passion for something Else. :) I am emailed if someone changes my talk page, so I am available if needed, but don't plan on returning to editorship. Anyways, lots to do. Have a great day, old friend! Thanks for asking. :D American Eagle (talk) 19:21, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
  • But now you will come back? :D -Barras talk 19:57, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

desysop[change source]

Since you have stated that you will not be active on this wikipedia, I was wondering whether you would object to a desysop. I will take this to the community if you agree. Griffinofwales (talk) 19:43, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

We have a standard to let them keep it for a year because opinions change and he may come back. He won't be put up for desysop for a year. -Djsasso (talk) 19:44, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
If he agrees, it doesn't need to be taken to the community. EVula // talk // // 19:44, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
@EVula, that's why I thought, but Simple is different from enWP, so I wasn't sure. @Djsasso, thanks for pointing that out. I tried finding a policy here but I couldn't find it. Could you show me where it is or create it? Thanks, Griffinofwales (talk) 19:46, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
Its in the archives of simple talk I believe if you want to see it. Its just what we do. We don't desysop inactive admins till they haven't edited in a year. Unless they voluntarily give it up. Which he is free to do at anytime, but I am guessing if he hasn't done it already he probably intends on keeping the bit. -Djsasso (talk) 19:50, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
OK, that makes sense. You don't need to show me the link though, I believe you, but you should add it to WP:De-adminship. Griffinofwales (talk) 19:54, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
From that page: "Other reasons for de-sysopping included sysops resigning or because of inactivity for a long of time." EVula // talk // // 19:57, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
But it doesn't say a year. A long time could be anything. Griffinofwales (talk) 19:58, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
The community standard is a year, and it will most likely not pass if it is less than a year. Shappy talk 20:01, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
(outdent) Hey guys! After considering this for a while, I've decided to resign (see Steward requests/Permissions#American Eagle@simplewiki) as an administrator of Simple English Wikipedia. It's been totally awesome being able to say, "I'm a Wikipedia administrator," but now I must say, "I'm a former Wikipedia administrator." :) I don't have use of the tools anymore. Thank you all for the opportunity and good times I had. American Eagle (talk) 18:52, 31 July 2009 (UTC)
Will you be resigning at Simple Wikiquote as well? :( Shappy talk 18:56, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

Why?[change source]

Why do you think Simpe English Wikipedia is a hindrance to your walk with Jesus, American Eagle? I have come to respect and admire you for both your faith and contributions, tho' I've never talked to you, and I am quite puzzled to think how Simple Wiki could stop you from worshipping the Lord. I am a Christian myself and I love Jesus very deeply, but I enjoy doing Simple Wikipedia and hope, by adding articles about Christianity, ect., and trying to remove prejudices against Christians, to help glorify Him. I'm sorry if I'm bothering you or being annoying, I was just wondering...:) God bless! Classical Esther 04:00, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

Replied on your talk. :) American Eagle (talk) 05:05, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
Oh...I think I kind of understand what you mean. Wikipedia can be a little addictive. Face-smile.svg Thank you very much for replying, and Heaven bless you! I hope He will be with you in real life ever more deeply and profoundly. Classical Esther 05:38, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
Comeback to us, AE!! ;) God bless, bro.--   CR90  05:46, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
Aaron, great to hear from you again! I don't plan on returning soon, but you'll notice a new user following your twitter. :) Blessings on you too! American Eagle (talk) 07:23, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
Yayz.--   CR90  07:32, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

Hello[change source]

I'm relatively new but I've seen your name around the site here and there. From one Christian to another, it's good to see you back. Kansan (talk) 00:25, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

Seconded. Welcome back from another newbie :) SS(Kay) 02:54, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
Thanks to you both! American Eagle (talk) 05:09, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

Hmm.....[change source]

I thought you had quit WMF projects? Seem's you are just like the rest of us, hooked! Welcome back, although I think you were better off before you came back! :) God Bless! fr33kman 03:51, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

Yes, I did, but then slowly came back on English Wikipedia, and now have eventually made my way back here. I don't plan to be as active as I once was, but will help whenever assistance is needed. Thanks for the welcome! :) American Eagle (talk) 05:09, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
Welcome back, AE! :D You are extremely valuable here! Classical Esther 02:23, 1 April 2010 (UTC)
Yay. <3! Pmlineditor^ 10:19, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

Welcome back![change source]

Welcome back, American Eagle! I'm very, very pleased that you've come. I do hope you'll keep on editing! It's such a relief I sent that mail to you, else you would have never come back :'(. But now! Well, anyway, I sent another letter.. But you don't need to read it, you'd probably be too busy. I do wish you were on IRC, too. It's very enjoyable talking with a person like you, you know. Well, anyway, welcome back and God bless you! Belinda 08:01, 17 April 2010 (UTC)
