Copied from the "Dissolution of the SSC and Granting of Eternal Presidency" thread here:
I have long held democracy a sacrocant privilege to the people of the Gamers Fanon Wiki ever since I reluctantly took office as your President in September of 2016. It is with great pleasure that I announce the next evolution of that democracy. The people have willed for this bureaucratic board, formed as a ploy of the BNO, to end it's reign of backstopping, slow progress, and nepotism it has had over our wiki for ages.
Democracy will continue under the new "imperial" wiki move, but admins, rollbacks and all staff members will remain just as important in fulfilling a critical role by keeping our historical wiki clean, accurate, and available for…
Friends, colleagues, future leaders, and obedient citizens;
Long have we waited. There has been an awakening. Have you felt it? It's new colors!
In light of a great conversation I had tonight with my admin team and Deputy Grand Vizier Ned Edgewalker, CEO of TOAB Security, a subsidiary of TOAB, Inc. in learning that our good friends from a far have found a potential new home, we are moving forward with long overdue renovations to the wiki! Leading this charge is former President G-man, who now serves as the Imperial Executive. He will be trying out new scripts and visual changes to the wiki as we move into our next phasen- eternity! Let us honor the WORK of our users for the DECADE we have existed and PLEDGE to PROTECT what comes next!

My fellow Wikians,
2019 was a year of-
We are still here, somehow. I am still here, somehow. We are approaching 10 years of existence! The Committee for the Preservation of True Leadership that in no way exists is not at all definitely excited for 2020 and what is to come!
New faces and old!
Thanks for being you. Get out there and make a difference. Still can't believe you're still here. Nor myself.
We do not have a policy that states exactly the limits of Presidential / Vice Presidential power, and for a long time we've just kind of gone with it. Regardless, "temporary" promotions have always been within bounds to bypass the SSC. Johnny Goldtimbers has served faithfully as an admin for the past year and I am also promoting Nults McKagan for his continued efforts on the wiki and to establish a baseline for our less-than-big community leadership. I've been considering thet right path for a while now and i've settled on this.
So he is now an admin and can do things that will fix things. I will be speaking with Wag about putting out an official SSC request that clearly states the powers and limits of what a President / Vice Presi…
My fellow Wikians,
The year 2019, roleplay year 1752 for those still keeping up, is here. This coming March will mark the 9th year of our existence. The fact that we are still here boggles both my own mind and those of several people, likely including the UGW, the Pirates Forums, and Currycoo himself. The game is long shutdown and TLOPO is but a distant memory for most of us. We've played different games together along the way, most prominently Minecraft, on which our dear Wiki Historian continues to host a dedicated server to all of our wikians (with exceptions). Regardless of what game we play, our base sticks together and continues to embrace the camaraderie all these years later.
Our timestamp currently reads: "Gamers Fanon Wiki was fou…
