This year, team formation is happening after nominations are already
over, so your fear makes no sense.

Within the DPL team, I discussed at the beginning of the nomination
period who would run this year. I announced that I would most likely
nominate myself. Why didn't you inform the rest of the team you were
considering to run again until you nominated yourself publicly? That was
a surprise for me.

I don't understand, identical teams or not, there would've been two
candidates with a team? Are the other five candidates all fools, or
running to become a figure head? 

If that's what you wanted to write, I strongly disagree.
