You should read this and nominate me... because...  
I've maintained several journals and communities on LJ, as a member of fandom, as a programmer and designer, and as a communications medium. It is more than that. It can be a professional tool, because of the simple layout that is changeable with a little work... It is quite simple to make a multimedia page for only $20 a year. I keep a paid account - This was my main but I have now changed to the other. So I see it as a living tool, full of real people who are quite into it, for whatever those reasons are. Censorship isn't good, so it's not up to LJ to figure out why people are into it, as long as they're not breaking the law. I have the experience, and have been around for all the changes, watched LJ grow, watched people walk out when LJ failed to meet their expectations, and am able to help project the future of LJ. One of the things that LJ has added recently that not many sites do, unless you're paying hundreds of dollars a year for a site that will get you blacklisted in search engines, is the adult category for journals, and the themes over 14 years of age. This is a major thing for fandom, and for general users who don't want to be censored, and yet it keeps LJ safe for legal purposes, and our children safe. Sure, we all know kids lie online, but at least it's an attempt, right? As far as changes, I'd just like to be involved in discussion, see what is brought up, put in the input of the everyday user, and even the users like me, who use it more than just a little. The communities here are fantastic - I've even replaced my eBay usage with a Japanese one here, and the potential for use is unlimited. I'd like to help enforce the adult marking - it is such a privelege to even have that ability, so I don't want it taken away due to people who aren't using it and still posting adult content. This is a bigge for me, since I am a single parent. So, please nominate me, because I am an icon maker, a programmer, a crazy hyper girl (though over 30) who owns her own company and is therefore always online, and who never sleeps, because sleep is overrated. AND CLICK THE PICTURES TO SEE ME IN ACTION! PLEASE?

Edit: I forgot to add that I have volunteered with the Nashville Union Mission, Habitat For Humanity, traveled to Mexico twice to build houses, am involved in international communities, won several student leadership awards in college, along with a couple of art awards, so I have been very active in many ways, not just online, and can offer a truly unique perspective. My son is homeschooled, and learning Japanese as one of his classes, along with the culture. So I'm a well-rounded person who has traveled all over the United States and other parts of the world, and will not play favorites. I know most people hear 'fangirl' and that's an immediate cringe, but I poke fun at myself in fandom, and list it only because it does speak to my qualifications - I sell art in the mangaka and doujinshika styles, as well as help my son learn things such as oekkake and kirigami.

It's always Lupus, or so I hear (that's what the t-shirts tell me sometimes - and without spoilers, reallllllly waiting to see what happens in the next season of House). ^_^ Thank you for your support.

Thank you!

Hey, I'm not the only one who poses her toon in WoW for screenshots and icons, yay! Savory Deviate Delite makes for much amusement amongst one of the guilds (Thanks Cops for tricking me into that one - best screenshots ever).

I nominate Mercynre.

I support this nomination and the rest of you should too. I know her in real life. Her creativity and unique way of solving problems sometimes terrifies me, but it gets things done. I can't even start to list her tech skills, but I wouldn't even have an operating computer without her.

Re: support
Thank you!

And I suppose it would work... just not well... I actually made you log in for the first time in forever, yay me! And you're sweet when you wanna be. Wish us luck in the OKC next week~

Thank you! I meant to post as soon as they opened like you did, but congratulations nonetheless on having made it past the 300 - great job! If you are elected, I hope we can chat some... I will be friending you so please add me back? Even if all we have in common is the urge to take many photographs and work with LiveJournal?

*needs badly to post convention photos tonight*

OH MY GOSH! You're the one who kept getting into my paint...

Every time I go into my studio, I've noticed smudges that were not quite my finger size. Now I know who the culprit is! XD

Thank you for your support and I love the 'green' icon.

A vote of support for a worthy candidate.

Thank you!

I'm really impressed with your article on socks and such that I just commented on. It was a well articulated and intelligent post, and an issue that simply does not come up enough. It's always good to find that real issues are being discussed, or at least brought up for thought.

Even better when action is taken on such thoughts and realizations.
