Yes. I actually found this rule rather bizarre. I thought it was normal to be able to nominate for multiple positions, in case you don't get the first one.

Now that we have some experience using our Rules we know a bit better which of them need some tweaking. cheers Brianna -- They've just been waiting in a mountain for the right moment: http://modernthings.org/ _______________________________________________ Wikimediaau-l mailing list Wikimediaauemail@example.com https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimediaau-l
