hi there,

whatever the protocol is, it should be explicit. My general feeling is that we have too little rather than too many opportunities to understand what people propose, represent, want to achieve, understand. From that point of view, it is valuable to allow reaching out larger audiences, as Jan writes. 

However, as Tito notes, canvassing votes in return for favors is something we definitely should reject - as it is pretty much more or less corruption.

I believe, any process where "vote count" is the "only" way to decide the winners, appropriate canvassing policy should be a behavioral guideline.

On the contrary, I believe that in actual votes, in contrast to our regular consensus seeking processes onwiki, campaigning should be explicitly encouraged. That being said, behavioral guidelines could still apply on certain channels, but getting votes by talking about your platform and what you want to achieve if you win should not be disallowed in general.
