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.

You've only gone and changed the election rules, you varmints!

What you once said:

Tallying the results
After the polls close on May 29th, we will determine the winner of the elections in the following way:
-If a user has 51% of the first-choice vote, that candidate will be declared the winner
-If no user has 51% 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 51% of the vote.
-If all ballots are exhausted and no candidate has 51% of the vote, we will return to the first round and award the election to the candidate with the most 1st choice votes.

What you say now (with my added emphasis):

-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.

The change you've made is entirely sensible, absolutely correct and makes the election process better. Thank you for changing it; you have done the right thing. (I am convinced what you say with "more than 50%" is what you meant when you wrote 51% at the time.) Still, please don't think that we aren't going to notice when you change the rules, and please get it right first time, next time.
blahblahblah, whatever: rmkathrynrose on May 23rd, 2008 01:55 am (UTC)
Good catch. Incidentally, the profile page for the community still says 51%

Raven Moon: Can you be that stupid?raven_moon on May 22nd, 2008 11:09 pm (UTC)
this jameth character is clearly an attention seeking wanker, and if this chump ends up with this position it may just be the last straw that spurs my departure from this circus. Grrrr.

Wait a second, let me see if I get this straight. People are calling joke on jameth's nomination just because he is obviously winning and has tons of support, but there's an entire community (ljunited) geared toward "uniting" users (aka fixing the vote pretty much) in support of rm and that's not a problem? At least jameth has enough support without, I don't know, campaigning to the other popular candidates for it. And I don't even know him. I just find the backlash to him laughable considering it's obviously out of jealousy.
