Kevin Gorman (talk) 01:23, 2 November 2015 (UTC)
    @Kevin Gorman: ApprovedHello again. Same concerns as I mentioned at the Women Writers Online page: your account meets the minimum age/activity no problem, and I see that you've been actively editing on the topic of Narcan recently, but you've also applied for more than a dozen subscriptions through the Wikipedia Library this week. You seem to have more specific plans for this one, though, so I'll approve here, and see how that goes. Watch for an email shortly with further details.Penny Richards (talk) 20:34, 5 November 2015 (UTC)
