I agree with Tinu/Theo/Hari that there is a need for an extension. Like Tinu, I am also worried of the response so far and it will definitely affect the Chapter in the sort to medium term (maybe even hurt its image) if the right people are not elected.

The notification was sent just earlier this week. There should be an extension. Although I'm with the appeal to long time Wikipedians in requesting them to nominate themselves, I wouldn't go overboard thinking that the response is either disappointing or concerning for the future of Wikimedia India Chapter. There just wasn't enough time given for members and by any means - sending out just e-mail notifications doesn't suffice. The people responsible for the elections (is that the nominations committee?) should do more, like dropping a message on the members' user page on Wikipedia. Many people may not be checking emails from this mailing list regularly. Also, the members may have questions -- about the role, about the term they're signing up for and much more. Like some emails sent to this list, the members may also need help nominating themselves. Is there an FAQ for nominations, btw?

The window for nomination hasn't been open for long, it might make sense in extending it for a while so more Wikimedians can hear about it.

This is very disappointing and concerning for the future of Wikimedia Chapter India. I sincerely appeal to the veteran Wikipedians / Wikimedians of India to come forward and help grow the chapter.
