See User:Lar.. leave messages there, on Lar's talk, not here. Thanks!

I am getting this account because at some point I may want to run a bot. This account does NOT currently run any bots and thus does not yet need the bot flag. Mail link should work or leave me a message on User talk:Lar. You should NEVER see this account being used to vote, participate in policy discussions, or anything like that, unless it is blazingly clear that it really is Lar talking, and if you do PLEASE bring it to my (Lar's) attention!

Thanks! ++Lar: t/c 14:39, 13 April 2006 (UTC)

Note: As of this writing (Jan 2007), the account is doing edits. However, all edits are being performed manually or with AWB (with me reviewing them)... I decided to try to use it for rote tasks like newsletter delivery and DYK thanking/crediting, in order to leave my own watch list and contrib history more fairly focused on non rote tasks. But as of this writing it's still not a bot account. (AWB is not a bot. Using a javascript function from a dropdown tab to add a previewable comment to a talk page in one click is also not a bot) Please direct any questions you might have to me, thanks! The statement about it not ever voting or commenting substantively in discussions where it is not clear that it is me speaking, continues to hold and I continue to request notice if you ever see that violated. ++Lar: t/c 19:00, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

Note the current sig of the bot ("++Larbot - run by User:Lar - t/c") has a disclaimer that the account is run by Lar, which should avoid any confusion.
