The "bottom half" depends somehow on the number of candidates. This is the ranked list: | 1 dberkholz | 2 Halcy0n | 3 Flameeyes | 4 Betelgeuse | 5 lu_zero | 6 Jokey | 7 dertobi123 | 8 cardoe | 9 dev-zero | 10 leio | 11 welp | 12 fmccor | 13 ulm | 14 jer | 15 hkBst | 16 astinus | 17 ferdy peper | 18 zlin What is the bottom half? By ranks: 1-9 is the first half, and 10-18 the second. Or did you already remove rank 18? | * Whenever a member of the Council loses their position (the reason is | irrelevant; they could be booted for slacking or they resign or ...), then | the next person in line from the previous Council election is offered the | position. If they decline, it is offered to the next person in line, and so | forth. If they accept and the current Council unanimously accepts the new | person, they get the position with a 'reduced' term such that the yearly | elections still elect a full group. If the Council does not accept that | person, then a new election is held to choose a new member. <> So your options are: - Change the rules once again. Because you can. - Follow the rules.
