Within nearly 2 hrs. I received over the necessary 100 comments to officially put me on the ballot in 2 weeks.
I do invite you to read the following posts on the Advisory Board:
The purpose of the Advisory Board: http://community.livejournal.com/lj_2008/2303.html
The appointed members and the mandate: http://community.livejournal.com/lj_2008/3384.html
The process of the election to the board: http://community.livejournal.com/lj_2008/4233.html
While I will be making web banners to help people spread the word when elections come... I really want this to be an election where you vote for the candidate that will best represent your views on the board to LiveJournal.
In as much, I want to strongly also congratulate rm who was also approved today. I invite you to read her platform for running.
Because to me this isn't a popularity contest. This is giving the right voice of the users the power to speak to the company that runs, maintains, and develops a tool that a lot of us have grown very attached to using.
In the meantime, please continue to spread the good word. Post in your journals, invite others to post. Educate them about the board, the process, and what we're trying to do.
I will open this post to anyone who has any questions.
Edit: Additional candidates that have been approved and their platforms:
