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!

Reading through the comments it seems to be that the comments might be entertaining the LJ Staff rather than the other way around!!!

CAUTION, YOU WILL SEIZE FROM THIS
legomymalfoy gave me a seizure and a migraine, just like her supporters accused jameth of doing and he removed his icon but legomymalfoy still has hers up:

Re: CAUTION, YOU WILL SEIZE FROM THIS
[Unknown LJ tag] offends my aesthetic taste with that icon and those of us who are aesthetically sensitive should MOBILIZE.

It's a trap.

I have voted here. I will not report for whom.
But this is nothing but a "dog & pony show".

The accounts here which vote(d) for the wrong candidate will get one or more E-Mails, or may find out directly when they attempt to login to LJ sometime on June 2nd.

Their accounts will be "permanently suspended", and their votes will have gone uncounted.

Combine the counting ability of a Florida election with the efficacy of Russian voting sessions (in which the party's candidates get 98% of the vote; and those who do not vote for the party's candidates mysteriously disappear), and nothing shall really change for the better.

But really, why should it?
LJ/SUP knows you are addicted to it, and no matter how abusive it acts towards you, you will continue to give it your time and money.

A quick look there shows most people are concerned about the calculation process and algorithm where in the English-speaking countries people are concerned about what the 2nd place candidates friends are doing.

I anticipate the reaction from fandom the next time LJ/SUP fucks them over, especially after their much vaulted "fandom" candidate is voted to the board.
Ju Ju Beejulieannie on May 27th, 2008 08:12 am (UTC)
It will be jameth's fault for making them choose the most popular fandom candidate and not the best qualified.

I am amused that most of the comments to this entry are so very childish, and not in the good way. Amused in an "oh god no" way.

What does LMM have to hide?
I, and several others have a VERY VALID QUESTION about LMM's intentions. Why will she not answer it?

From http://legomymalfoy.livejournal.com/585715.html
LMM_scr_sht

I asked this question last night, as did many others. I figured she'd choose one person to answer and not necessarily comment directly to me, so I checked back this morning to see what her answer was and SHE LOCKED THE POST!

Way to campaign!

Re: What does LMM have to hide?
This is very sad news to the users of Livejournal. This candidate with all her fandom sockpuppet votes, then the conflict of interest being a member of the LJ abuse team. This election is a joke. The people of livejournal are not being represented. A small percentage of people on LJ will be represented, and only because of all their sockpuppet fandom votes. The most distressing part of all this is that someone that is supposed to be a LJ employee doesn't have integrity with the process. So much for freedom of speech and representing the people. The very fact this candidate screens, deletes and freezes questions shows they will not be objective enough to represent all the people of livejournal.
