First ever LiveJournal User-Representative Election  
PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU VOTE!!!

Eligibility
Those eligible to vote in this poll are:
-Users with accounts created before March 11, 2008
-Users who are not using Cyrillic language services (there is a poll for Cyrillic users at lj_election_ru)
-Users who have accounts with validated email addresses


Voting
Users should select their first choice, second choice, and third choice candidates from the drop-down list.

Determining the winner
The poll will be closed at 9:00 p.m. PDT Thursday, May 29, 2008
-If a user has more than 50% of the first-choice vote, that candidate will be declared the winner
-If no user has more than 50% of the first-choice vote, we will begin using an Instant Runoff process. The user with the lowest tally for first-choice vote will be eliminated, and the second choice candidate on those ballots will be substituted as first choice. This process will continue (drop lowest candidate, reassign to next vote, tally again) until any user has more than 50% of the vote.
-If all ballots are exhausted and no candidate has more than 50% of the vote, we will return to the first round and award the election to the candidate with the most 1st choice votes.

Member Term
The new Advisory Board member will be announced by the end of the day on Friday, May 30, 2008 and will begin their one-year term of service on June 1, 2008.

THANK YOU!

Jameth has a history. An unpleasant, mocking history focused on his lack of respect for others. This includes the founding of both lj_drama and Encyclopedia Dramatica.

The excuse for his rampantly unpleasant behavior is that it's funny.

Personally, I would rather not one day log into a LiveJournal painted in painfully blinding colors and smeared with violently flashing pornographic insults. I don't care if it's April 1.

It's too bad the jameth supporters have basically flooded the first couple of comment pages on this entry. At least the news of his real self is finally being heard by incoming voters.

jameth did not found Encyclopediadramatica. He also did not found ljdrama.

We should bear in mind that all this drama and wank is essentially about who gets an all-expenses-paid vacation to Istanbul.

Also, it's easier and less expensive than buying stock in SUP...

I was curious about Jameth but- I think his lj speaks for him.
Jedi Iwakurajedi_iwakura on May 24th, 2008 06:19 pm (UTC)
The entries about his platform?
And how he's spent his day with his family?
And how he helps friends with sick pets?
And how he works for the city with campaign-relevant positions?
And how he does AIDS/HIV counseling?
And how he can roll with the punches?
And how he can find humor in any situation?
And how he can communicate with LJ staff?

Or are you sheeping what others have to say about him?

It's not "wrong" or "cheating" if people use sockpuppets accounts to vote. They were created before the vote, so they're writing accounts, RP accounts... They're part of the LJ community, and they're making it vivid and active. If you whine, then get more LJ users out of fandom voting.

I'm not voting for legomymalfoy, but I admire her capacity to gather supporters that are less loud but more efficient than jameth's.
