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 is a winner. And he will lead LJ to a state of winning.

They're conveniently located within this tag: http://jameth.livejournal.com/tag/livejournal+advisory+board

I invite you to come over and read :)

This is live journal, not the presidency. Relax.

No indeed, but I think that part of 'understanding the userbase' requires understanding that a lot of LiveJournal's users take this sort of thing to be very SRS BSNS. Regardless of whether that's right or wrong, reasonable or ridiculous, it's still the reality of who you're dealing with. Any candidate who wants to claim they can understand, communicate effectively with, and advise on how to handle such a group is going to need to be cognizant of that.

Jameth's policies are a closely-held secret, to be revealed only when he wins. I thought everybody knew that.
