This is the thread's initial revision.
Hi Hamilton. I wanted to thank you for your enormous number of contributions over the past years. You have made over 22,000 now - just not enough to get the "25000" template on your user page :( - and I just wanted to let you know that I appreciate your consistent contributions for Portuguese tremendously. I hope you will be able to contribute as much in the future as you have in the past, although I fear you may run out of translations in a few months :).
