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!

Re: Relevant links
I don't understand. What did jameth do that is blatantly unsuitable?

Re: Relevant links
Um, how about getting 20X the vote as primitivepeople? We are talking a major butt-hurt sore loser here.

Re: Relevant links
Please elaborate. I see a person who volunteers in his community, serves on boards, protects free speech, saves animals from oil spills, supports fair elections in his community, has been to the Livejournal HQ and has been a member of LJ for years. He might have a sense of humor but he takes his jobs seriously.

Re: Relevant links
He also wrote my name on his balls, which I think shows humility and excellent taste.

Re: Relevant links
And these are most of the reasons why he got my vote. Jameth is probably an awesome person IRL as well as online. I heart him.

Re: Relevant links
And posts stuff like this outside the cut: http://jameth.livejournal.com/4110705.html

His real life qualifications are good, but online he acts like a troll and a jackass.

Is this (NSFW) really someone we want representing us?
He Who Doessrattus on May 23rd, 2008 10:38 pm (UTC)
Of course.

Any other questions that I can clear up for you?

Re: Relevant links
I don't mind him posting images outside of a cut. Livejournal says users have that right and if people are concerned they should turn placeholders off. Also, he did not create that icon and I think that acting like he did is just searching for reasons to hate him. ED pages are notoriously full of exaggerations and bad humor. I'm very familiar with his ED page ad him as a user and I see nothing wrong with him. Your mileage may vary. I'm glad we can both agree on his qualifications but if we disagree on our candidates, that's fine with me too.
