I don't care if there is a better place for this post!
The Webby Awards are underway, they are a peoples choice style awards program, all you have to do is register at the site to vote on the categories. You may or may not know that Live Journal has been nominated along with FictionAlly, Friendster, Suicide Girls, and Wikipedia in the category of "Community". We currently have only 10% of the votes. We are being beaten by a trendy porn site (with 20%), and a frickin encyclopedia being written by interweb geeks (with 30%, and how is it a community?). Anyway I will be the first to admit openly that I love my Live Journal, and with the drama that flows from this place I'd bet that everyone else here does too. We have over 1,000,000 active accounts, we should not be in 3rd place behind a porn site!. Furthermore other than Bugster Friendster, we are the only real community site in the category. I propose that the Webby Awards, and our nomination be announced in any, and all appropriate LJ run communities, the front page of Live Journal itself, and then we all as users should make an effort to pimp this out to everyone we know encouraging them to do the same. I may be acting very "rah rah cheesy", but damnit we are THE community on the internet and we need to let them know it!
