Then notices just on Main Pages? I don't think that a random user from
search engines is interested in our governing.

Not to say that if someone is interested in Wiki*p*edia governing, may
be introduced into the whole process after two or three pages, starting
from [[Wikipedia]] in any language.

As an account owner on LiveJournal, but without any activity, I am
getting emails which inform me about the process of their elections.
However, I don't remember that I saw that online (although I am very
rarely there).

I have no precise idea how, but it is obvious that we need to lower
amount of our own advertising to random users.
