The rationale for this nomination is that the rules for Check User rights require there to be two on any Wiki. As I understand it there are no other elected CU's on Meta so Larry would make the 2nd to Pathoschild. In my experience recently there appear to be no other active elected CUs & I fully agree with Aphaia that rules should be respected here as well as on other Wikis.
Larry is a user I have considerable respect for. I have worked with him across projects in a number of ways. He is approachable and responsive. His crosswiki experience is extensive and indicates a committed wikimedian. I nominated him for these rights on Commons and was very pleased that the community there supported him. He has made good use of the rights there & is familiar with the issues involved. I have made a number of nomination on wikis - the one for Larry on Commons I have no regrets about at all and I am sure he would serve here in a valuable way.

Thank you, Herby, for your support (it should be noted that Herby and I have worked closely together on a few crosswiki cases he's brought to my attention, and I intend to nom him for CU on Commons fairly soon... if no one beats me to it), and I accept. I think having CUs with access to more than one project is a good thing, as it makes it easier to deal with cross project issues. ++Lar: t/c 14:33, 20 May 2007 (UTC)

Support. I fully trust Lar and we need more CUs on meta since the current CUs are not much active. Though I stronly disagree with the rationale: we have current checkusers on meta, we don't *need* to have another one *only because* we elect Pathoschild. guillom 16:14, 20 May 2007 (UTC)
Support I fully trust Lar, as I trust Pathoschild, and his experience with these tools and other tools on various projects including here, Commons, and Wikipedia, make me sure that he will be a very good meta CU. :) Cbrown1023talk 16:32, 20 May 2007 (UTC)
