What triggered my complain probably is because there is not a time
frame for writing statements.
What about setting a rule, that it is okey if you don't want to write
any statement, but the wiki will freeze at the time that nominations
are closed. Or even freeze the statements declarations two days after
nominations are closed.

Probably it is just me looking for a more organized way when there is
no real need for more rules.

When I pointed to the order, I just pointed that most running
candidates just wrote their name at the bottom of the list. And them
some one put his name on top. It seems rude to me, but it is not
against any rule.
I think going alphabetically will help avoid this perceptions. Not
sure if it is needed this time, as there was not rule. If this is
going to be applied now, I volunteer to do the wiki editing. But I
will not undertake action unless is agreed. I still think that should
be left for next election and a rule should be written before next
election. I am not a fan of changing rules at the middle of the game.
