Oi, one nomination!  When voting for president, do you get to pick more than one person?  :))  And please remember it still has to be seconded.

So, now that you have to choose, which is the better of the two?

Just to be clear, there is a very big difference between nominating and voting, and there are many electoral systems that permit multiple nominations from a single potential voter. Comparing multiple nominations to voting for the president is a red herring, and a poor one at that.

Obviously, you set the rules for your competition, and in this case, you've set it such that each person can only nominate one deck (or other item, as the case may be) per category, but that's an arbitrary rule and not one based on a universal standard (the fact that there have been many attempts to nominate multiple items in a single category points toward this), or even any (publicly stated) logic or reasoning.

That being said, I have no objection to the 1 nomination per category per person rule - just want to point out that it's an arbitrary rule and has little to nothing to do with how many votes one gets when voting for a president...

PS: To answer your (irrelevant) question on presidential voting (with an equally irrelevant answer since it has no application whatsoever to this competition), as a matter of fact, when you vote for President, at least in the US, you actually are technically voting for at least 2 people - the President and the Vice President, since they run together on the same ticket.

Thank you everyone for your nominations!!!
Just note if you pick 3-10 decks your first nomination will be the one that counts.
Also if the deck is yet to be released, the vote can only count if it is released in 2014.

I felt it appropriate to use the one nomination rule because we are choosing the best - is there more than one best?

The fact that the US President and Vice President get elected together don't change the fact that you cast a single vote in order to get them elected.  It's a package deal.

Yup, they're marked.  It would be better to post about it in the topic about the deck - it's older, sure, but no one around here objects to meaningful contributions to older topics.
