I'm game for this. It is about time something different is happening.

We’ve always been told that should there be a Term with no Team, or a Term where only one Team made the ballot and didn’t win the vote, Catspaw would be the sole administrator for the duration and appoint a handful of moderators.

You're more than welcome to consider Catspaw the sole administrator and me as the owner who's come to give her a hand. We will still be appointing moderators to help out around here.

There will be no Mayor or Chief of Police this term.

Sure, but give a hand with what exactly? Nothing will be going on, on an administrative level, that's why it's an empty Term. :-k

I think you're confusing "empty term" with "anarchy."

I don't think so, anarchy would be having no administrator which isn't the case as we have Catspaw. An empty Term is what I previous explained was explained to us. Catspaw would be in power, because she always is, but would be sole administrator because there is no elected team. She would not be running events and that kind of thing elected admins do, thus the Term is empty. It's simply waiting until the next Election.

Well then, this isn't going to be an empty term, based on this definition, as that sounds incredibly boring.

This is going to be a Legendary Term!! \:D/ \:D/

Yes, that's what I've been saying. This isn't an empty Term, despite being told that having no Teams in the Election would result in one.

That doesn't sound like an Empty Term, that sounds like...stagnation. All here for LEGENDS. Does that include BRIAN BLESSED?!

Anyway, Shadowpaw's the ToO's creator. How many times have gods come back to their children? ;) (Cranky atheist joke warning.)
