This is not how I work or you work. It is about how a wiki should work. I
quoted my experience to provide a context for my mail. Aren't there 100s of
projects / elections running in En Wiki? Does everyone use mailing lists?

I am sorry that you didn't get the point yet. Where is the point of feeling
bad when you can do it on-wiki transparently and everyone can see it?
Nomination is a needless procedure but still it is ok if you wanted to
follow a procedure.

This is a regular Wikipedia activity which is best managed within talk

May be if I start sending mails about everyday activities in Tamil
Wikipedia, then you will understand the issue. There are many Tamils here
who are not in Tamil Wikipedia. So, may be we too will have a good chance
to find good volunteers :)

 But we are discussing what should be on this list and what should not.

Is discussing that beyond the scope of this list :)
