Advisory Board Self-Nomination  
I'll try and keep this short. I'm Seph, and I'm nominating myself for this election because I feel that LJ, while a powerful and effective business, needs to have closer contact with its userbase in order to continue being more than just a business, but a vibrant and varied community. I think I'd be good at it because I have connections with many of the groups that have had arguments with LJ/Six Apart in the past - various fandoms, for example - without being so embroiled in these communities that I cannot take a step back and examine issues objectively.

I have had this journal since August 2005 and currently have a friends list of 182 people, 54 communities and 22 RSS feeds, all of which I read on a daily basis. I moderate doctorwho and classic_film, both the biggest communities dedicated to their subjects on LJ, as well as the smaller communities uk_steampunk and classicfilmicon. In addition to this I was once an ljsecret mod, which is one of the biggest communities on LJ - when I was working there we had in excess of 10k members.

I would love to be a part of the LJ Advisory Board because I want to help. I want to be a part of the running of this community that has meant so much to me, and I want to be in a position where I can really help LJ to understand its users and see their points of view, as opposed to trying to do what they think s best without any interaction with us.

If any of this sounds like A Good Idea to you, please comment to this post with "I support this nomination". Thanks in advance,

seph_hazard
