  • Personal info: I became a steward after the December 2007 election. I also hold admin rights on en:wp, Commons, and Meta (I gave it up on en:ws), 'crat on commons and meta, CU on en:wp, commons and meta, and oversight on Commons. I am one of the folk that handle access to the CU and Steward mailing lists as well. I think I've been fairly active at the various steward tasks, and I have plans to continue doing so. I welcome your feedback.

  • Informações pessoais: Eu me tornei um steward depois da votação de Dezembro de 2007. Eu também tenho direitos de administrador na Wikipédia em inglês, Commons e Meta (Eu abdiquei no Wikinews em inglês), sou burocrata no Commons e no meta, CheckUser na Wikipédia em inglês, commons e meta, e oversight no Commons. Também sou um dos que dão acesso as mailing lists dos CheckUsers e Stewards. Acho que eu tenho sido bastante activo nas diversas actividades dos stewards e tenho planos de continuar a sê-lo. Agradeço vossas sugestões.

  • Личная информация: Я стал стюардом после выборов в декабре 2007 года. Также я продолжил быть админом в en:wp, Commons, и на Мете (и сдал флаг в en:ws), бюрократ на Commons и Мете, чекюзер в en:wp, Commons и Мете, ревизор на Commons. Кроме того, я один из тех, кто даёт доступ к списку почтовой рассылки стюардов и чекюзеров. Я думаю, я был достаточно активен в выполнении разных стюардских задач, и планирую продолжать быть таковым. Жду ваших отзывов.

  • Per Kanonkas really, but I know Lar has lots of other important things to be doing :) so lack of activity is forgiven. Majorly talk 00:38, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

  • COI - I'm also up for confirmation. Obvious keep. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 05:24, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
    Well, all of us stewards are. I'm not sure I'm going to go put COI on all my comments but I guess maybe we should? I hope it goes without saying though. Interested in what people think, maybe take comments to talk? (Talk:Stewards/confirm) I will gladly add that to my comments if people think it necessary. ++Lar: t/c 05:37, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

  • Keep up the good work, Lar! GlassCobra 15:19, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Agree with the note above that this steward suffers from an excess of "Larness". Furthermore, the steward seems to be suffering from a constant state of nonasciiemoticonaphobia, which manifests itself in near-panicked reactions to the presence of graphical mood indicators such as Face-devil-grin.svg or Face-grin.svg. However, notwithstanding, and despite, such formidable obstacles, this steward slogs forward and braves the frightening chaos of wikispace with steadfast determination. In other words, BooYah! -- Avi 16:11, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

  • Support Support I don't always agree with Lar's wikipolitics. In fact, when we interact it's usually when we disagree. But nothing he's said or done or had said about him has eroded my faith in his integrity, decency and trustworthiness. Not even a bit. --JayHenry 20:03, 8 February 2009 (UTC)

    Making accusations without evidence is inappropriate and unethical. Cla68 02:12, 11 February 2009 (UTC)
    The public presentation of evidence would likely prove very controversial. In addition to what I have the go-ahead to publish, many people have spoken to me off the record. That said, if Lar wishes the evidence to be openly discussed, nothing prevents him from requesting it.Proabivouac 06:43, 11 February 2009 (UTC)
    It's interesting to note that Larry himself is not adverse to making accusations with unspecified "evidence". I think Pedro pretty much nailed it - "untrustworthy and two faced".

    re: User:Proabivouac — who should peddle this trash elsewhere (WR links as evidence? what malarkey)
    This is pure trolling and this is going end with a block as on en:wp, so why fret? Lar is one of the best on all the WMF sites, as many are saying above. I've met Josette (here) — I'd trust her as a steward, too, were she interested. Cheers, Jack Merridew 09:06, 12 February 2009 (UTC).
    Jack Merridew, If I or anyone else is blocked for blowing the whistle on this kind of thing, rest assured that this won't be the end of it. The evidence of an institutional cover-up is mounting.
    Again, again, if Lar wishes a public presentation of the evidence, he and any of his defenders, including you, are free to say so.
    What I'm hearing instead is, "You've presented no evidence, and if you try to present any, it will be blanked and oversighted, and you'll be blocked, as on en.wp." Well, no doubt. That's the way you play it nowadays.
    Female volunteers have described a pattern of unwelcome sexual advances on the part of one of Wikipedia's senior functionaries. That's serious business, and if you can't recognize it as such, you've no business in this discussion.Proabivouac 10:46, 12 February 2009 (UTC)
    Sounds like pure slander on your part. Jack Merridew 10:51, 12 February 2009 (UTC)
    Not so, I can assure you. Sticky Parkin 14:48, 12 February 2009 (UTC)
    Amazingly, not one poster to this page seems interested in learning what the evidence actually is. Clearly, the "community" cannot be trusted to make a responsible and informed decision. Here, we're looking at women being met with vulgar and unwelcome sexual advances, and all we hear is, "he's done some other useful things" (things that anyone with his toolset could have done)
    Where are you, Lar? Hiding, it seems - we know you've seen this discussion, so speak up.Proabivouac 13:55, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

    Comment Recuse While the hints and allegations are disturbing, no evidence has been presented for scholarly peer review. As Lar well knows, WikiCulture does not embrace Due Process, and it is customary to trash someone's standing or reputation by blithely posting a haphazard theory of mind. —Moulton 15:05, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
    Sorry, you are not eligible to comment because you are indefinitely blocked on Meta, and not logged in. (That doesn't matter much since your comment is still visible, of course, but struck comments will be removed if many ineligible users abuse that fact.) —Pathoschild 15:49:53, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
