WTF
The last entry on this LJ community was on January 24th, 2008.  I got this email today from LJ:

Dear  thnidu ,

You're receiving this email because you're one of the maintainers of the community  aljcommpanel08 . LiveJournal has recently implemented an additional role in community management. Moving forward, each community will have one designated Owner, who will be the only user permitted to perform high-level tasks, such as deleting maintainers or deleting/renaming the community. You can read more about the Owner role here: http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=225 .

Since  aljcommpanel08  has multiple maintainers, it is now up to you and the other maintainers of the community to select which of you will be designated as Owner. A poll has been created for your community at this page . Visit this page and vote for which current maintainer you believe should be made Owner of the community. You can read more information on the election process at the above-referenced FAQ.

Regards,
LiveJournal Team
 

As far as I'm concerned, this LJ community is no longer needed at all and can be dispensed with. According to the poll there are three maintainers: me, jducoeur , and gnomi .  I voted for J. because s/he's the first one on the list, and I thought "anyone but me".
  • LJ is doing this for (or to) every community that has more than one maintainer, unless it can figure out which maintainer is longest-serving. We just got the same notice over in davis_square. You won't be able to delete the community until an owner is elected. LJ will close the election either when all current maintainers have voted, or on a fixed date sometime in March, whichever happens first. If no plurality exists at that point, the poll will remain open until there is one.

  • I got the same notification, and it's fine by me as well. We'd started it for the Arisia panel in '08 but haven't touched it since, as far as I can recall.
