If a faction has only a few players, then so be it, they will have a heavy influence on the upcoming server configuration.

What factions are open for next cycle? Are we back to all of them?
Will the build tables be staying the same? This can affect faction choices, and some players may want to switch before nominations begin.
As for leaders, Ogre did an excellent job with FS last cycle. No matter what faction he winds up in, I'd like to see him leading it. I suspect he's going to win the vote anyway but in my opinion he deserves to simply be awarded a spot on the council. Not that I'm creating yet more work for him or anything!
The build tables will stay essentially the same *FOR NOW* with the addition of the contest winners. I will be simplifying them a little to get rid of subfolder storage, as that has caused technical issues.
