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.

Oh no, I completely agree, I was being sarcastic. The threats are no joke, and the only thing that is funny about this is that they are now using it as an excuse as to why their fearless leader has been ignoring questions for days now.

bookshop (of course) says it here.

Well-- no I think the timing isn't AS suspect as some might think, I suspect she locked everything up as soon as she heard about it, which may have been sooner than even cambler and jameth let out that they knew something. If she was indeed the target of the threat they probably got to her first. Her lockdown wasn't too much ahead of the news reported by cambler et al, maybe bay 12 hours I think? 24 at the most.
ladylawanda on May 28th, 2008 04:07 pm (UTC)
That definitely could be true. However, I also don't see why she would be locking down a post with valid questions regarding her candidacy as a way to deal with the threats. The two don't really seem to mesh, but I could also not be understanding some things and none of us know exactly what happened.

Definitely could be.

Therein lies my problem and concern. I'm not hearing anything out of Fandom_Votes. And Fandom_Counts was never to be anything but a numbers thing. LJ_2008 is behind, news is behind, there is nothing being said on any other community out there. legomymalfoy has disappeared, rm is having family problems, vichan is there but she's rather alone at the moment.

UGH, this is worse than American elections. Remind me again why I still care?
ladylawanda on May 28th, 2008 04:30 pm (UTC)
Glutton for punishment? ;)

I know I still care because there is literally nothing to do at work but get all involved in this fuckery.

Fandom_counts was never meant to have any posts at all, the mod said so and as one of the mods is a candidate I'm pretty glad they haven't broken that original rule. Right now, as far as I know, the mods of fandom_votes don't know nearly enough to comment on it at all.
