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!

Everyone thinks that she is the one receiving death threats which obviously is why she has been acting so weird and refusing to answer questions.

Quote from one of legomymalfoy's ardent supporters:

"I also, in all honesty, know that Jen has a habit of burying her head in the sand when things get too intense - when she feels pressured, her first impulse is to avoid the conflict instead of facing it."

Are you kidding me?? THIS is the kind of person you want to stick up for the user base when our interests conflict with that of LiveJournal, Inc.?

I'll repost what I said in an earlier comment.

I would far rather a prat/instigator/troll be on the advisory board - someone who is KNOWN for rocking the boat and challenging the establishment.

This is far and above better than someone who is already in bed with the establishment.

I cannot respect any individual who would enforce a decision that was in direct opposition of their convictions.

THATS the type of person you want representing you?? Someone who would delete your account with the apology of "It wasn't up to me, they told me to do it."

We need someone who is irreverent by their very nature, that will stand up to LJ Inc. at all costs.

We are the consumers - and our interests are not the same as LJ Inc. We want a representative to be the voice of our concerns, untainted by any allegiance to the corporation at large.

legomymalfoy has clearly shown where her allegiance lies - and its not with the user base.

Jameth's supporters have been bragging about using sockpuppets. Isn't it cheating when his side do it, too?

Personally, I have over fifty journals and I voted once, because I don't cheat, however good the cause.

LB: [stock] rainy dayslb_x on May 28th, 2008 09:42 pm (UTC)
1. Results should not be visible until all votes are in. This entire thing is corrupted, because a lot of people are throwing support behind who has a chance currently, and not platforms.

2. Speaking of platforms, why did LiveJournal not compose a list of platforms and notify all users about it? If you send me notices about new v-gifts, I expect one about something as important as election platforms for people who are suppose to be representing me.
Ju Ju Bee: judy blumejulieannie on May 28th, 2008 10:30 pm (UTC)
There is a linked list of platforms in the news post but for some unknown reason they didn't post it here which seems not so smart.

It's a damn shame fandom decided to get behind a candidate who's buddies with the loudest HP BNFs and volunteers for one of fandom's foes, LJ Abuse.

I'm not buying that any of the other fandom candidates were unable to catch and surpass jameth. Fandom keeps on going on about how constructive and coordinated and cohesive they are. If that's the case, why not support rm or vichan or qfemale, or any other of the so-called fandom approved choices as first choice?
It's in the trees! It's coming!thickets on May 28th, 2008 11:27 pm (UTC)
*shrugs* I watched it play out, and it wasn't that rm or vichan couldn't catch up, it's just that it wound up that legomymalfoy was the closest to catching up, and people started voting to her because she seemed the most likely. And it was her supporters that started mobilizing really heavily. I really wish supporters of the other fandom candidates had also done that. I would have been happy with any of them.

legomymalfoy has come out and made a post stating that she is the person who received the death threat, that after consideration she has decided to stay in the race, and she also speaks on the subject of her connection with LJ abuse and her dedication both to LJ as a user and as a member of fandom. She also talks about sockpuppet voting, condemns it, and requests that anyone who has voted for her using a sockpuppet immediately switch to any other candidate but her.

http://legomymalfoy.livejournal.com/586984.html

She is screening comments ... I think for obvious reasons.

NEVER underestimate the powers of fandom!
z_virus on May 29th, 2008 04:37 am (UTC)
its a shame that this voting is so such a scam and rigged because of the fact that legomymalfoy is not only on the lj abuse member team but basically shooting for a 3pointer by the fact that she/he/it want another piece of the lj pie, its unethical and really conflict of interest.

why does this so called vote even continue when this sleaze attempt is happening when she has the hugest vote lead of anyone which is a shame since im sure shes been using rumored sock puppetry and other friends and other inside manipulations to further her voting count.
