    - The maximum number of participating messages in the final vote will be ten. If more than ten nominations are submitted, seconded nominations will take priority. After seconded nominations are considered, earliest nominations will take priority. If the number of messages submitted to the contest is less than ten, the organizing committee may nominate posts if it considers it appropriate.
    I think requiring 10 nominations is a bit much. For various reasons the forum nowadays doesn't see much activity. The number of quality posts made during an entire month is probably less than 10. I think 5 nominations would be best.

    Thanks for the feed Dr. Legend, but ten is actually the maximum, not the minimum

    If the number of messages submitted to the contest is less than ten, the organizing committee may nominate posts if it considers it appropriate.
    this sentence is a bit misleading I think, it just says that IF the committee wants, it may nominate posts if it consider it appropiate; in other words there is no rule that says that there must be at the least 10 nominations, rather than if the committee sees a good post that has gone amiss and that can be nominated, they will probably do so, unless 10 nominations have been reached already
