If fewer than 5 people stand, only 3 get elected. If fewer than 3
candidates stand, none get elected and the scheme is in the hands of
the Community Manager (i.e. Quim) and the outgoing council (oh, doh -
haven't got one this time) to decide what to do; probably erring to
something like "more advertising required", "karma restrictions
relaxed" or "scheme scrapped due to lack of interest".

This is detailed at:

If this is the way the consensus is now going, so be it. It's
frustrating having this debate *now* when there've been numerous
pushes on the mailing lists, on the wiki and ITT to get that input
before now.

C'est la vie: noone does anything until it's real :-)
