My other two choices were vichan and rm because they both speak for fandom; if I must choose someone with no first-hand knowledge of LJ's behind-the-scenes workings or prior experience, then I'd like to have a fandomer on the board, even though I have great reservations about allowing one person to speak for all of fandom, and I also have reservations about a 100% pro-fandom candidate winning the vote. Fandom does not always speak sense. I would rather be represented by someone who, from the start, is willing to consider both sides of an issue.
Honestly, I would prefer to cast all three votes for Jen, but I'm pretty sure they'll be disqualifying anyone who does that (at least I hope so, because the candidate currently winning is an obvious troll -_-;;).
I do not support the IJ maintainer's (squeaky19) attempt to get on the LJ advisory board. He's got his own site to run, and frankly I wish he'd focus on IJ instead of trying to have a finger in every pie -- I still can't use IJ properly half the time; whenever I try to post anything I'm faced with timeouts and partially loaded pages. I'm sure he's a lovely person, but no. I want the LJ advisory board to contain people whose first priority is LJ, not a clone site that doesn't even work as well as LJ does.
The poll is here.
