Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

The second round of gaming elections has just started, and I can nominate myself again, despite having won the first round of election.

I understand this isn't going to be easy to fix, given that SE only knows about community mods, employees and developer roles, and pro-tempore mods need to be able to nominate themselves.

Eeeek, you've found our secret test. ): Really this is a simple litmus test for the existing moderators. If the election is adding moderators instead of replacing moderators and an existing moderator nominates themselves, then that's a reason to take away their diamond. Looks like you narrowly escaped losing your diamond! (:

Then I get re-elected and get my diamond back! Right? Right? – badp Aug 8 '11 at 20:19

@MatthewRead, win an election, then nominate yourself in the next one, and I guess we'll find out. (: – Rebecca Chernoff Aug 8 '11 at 21:25
@Rebecca so now I finally know how you lost your diamond! ;) – Shadow Wizard Jun 9 '14 at 21:57
