Nomnomnominate?

I, vichan, am putting my name forth as a potential candidate for the 2009 LiveJournal Advisory Board. I have been a member of LiveJournal since 2003. I am running for the position because I completely understand and accept that LJ has a very diverse collection of members who all use LJ for a variety of purposes. I'm very patient and laid back, but I know when and where to stand my ground. I believe in open and honest communication from both myself and the LJ staff. I have previous experience sitting on planning committees and boards, and I am currently serving my 3rd year as a member of a planning committee for the OMD Summer Institute Young Adult program.

If elected, I will listen to concerns and questions from all users who choose to communicate with me. I will also make an effort to reach out to other nominees for the position to hear their prime concerns since they cared enough about LJ to run in the first place. I also ran last year, witnessed hell breaking loose, and I still care enough to run again. I will be upfront and let everyone know that I am a part of fandom, but you should not consider me (or any other nominee) as a "fandom candidate." The election is about more than just fandom; it's also about poets, musicians, sports fans, students suffering through school, people who are only here for the lulz, people struggling with an illness, people who post nothing but photos of their hamsters, and so much more.

We're all here, and LiveJournal wouldn't exist without all of us.

Longer, more detailed "platform" can be found here. Questions and comments should be directed there.

More support for the nomination is welcome; just make sure you vote, too!
