The August 2021 FSA Council temporary spot election occurred on August 19th, 2021. The election included seven candidates. The candidates were the incumbent council member Iluy95studios, Cyberblue, Adam Hegazy, Unbojih, and Pollball. The first four candidates ran under the Conservative Party while Pollball ran under the Liberal Party, making Pollball the only candidate for the first left-wing candidate to run since the advisor elections. Greek Revolutionary Mapping initially ran in the election under the Liberal Party, Until his candidacy got suspended after a recall petition to remove him from the server and him admitting to saying the n-word less than a year ago. DanCey also had ran under the Conservative Party but was disqualified since he could only be online for 10 minutes a day. The winner of the election was Cyberblue, who won a clear victory with 66.7% of the vote.

Predictions

Most people inside of TMAFE knew that either Cyberblue or Iluy95studios would win the election. Cyberblue had also received three council endorsements from Konnor, United World, Sossie, Issac, and Oleg. This was also the first election to utilize polling throughout the election. The people who were expected to receive the least amount of votes in the results were Unbojih, DanCey, and Pollball going by polling numbers and popularity inside the server. Unbojih and DanCey were relatively quiet on their election plans and what they planned to do once elected while Pollball had alienated TMAFE's strongly conservative voter base by supporting abortion inside of TMAFE's general chat, which had angered the chat and caused United World to state he wouldn't endorse anyone that supports abortion. Iluy95studios was expected to do well as he is from Israel and also the incumbent while Cyberblue was expected to do well due to his popularity in the server, his strong conservative stances, and his lead in the first poll. Cyberblue improved on his lead in the second poll despite campaigning from others. On August 1st, 2021, just 18 days before the election, Greek Revolutionary Mapping's candidacy for the election was suspended over the recall and him admitting that he said the n-word as recent as less than a year ago, therefore making only six candidates and eventually five once DanCey's campaign was also suspended for not being active enough.
