The Community user flagged one of the moderator nominations for having more than 20 comments in the past 3 days.

Flagged Nomination

I know the flag is technically true and we can just dismiss it, but all the nominations are bound to get more than 20 comments. Can we have Community stop doing that?

  • It makes sense for questions and answers but not nominations. +1 Commented Nov 8, 2011 at 3:10

    Also note the alluring "delete post" button, an option which does not appear on the nominations page. We could wreak some havoc with that. It's a good thing you trust us! :) Commented Nov 8, 2011 at 3:13
  • Do they really need those comments? Most are "you have my vote, yay memez0r" crap :P

    I like how it says "answered 4 hours ago" in the mod queue, as well as how egregiously off-topic the first paragraph of my post is, making that "delete post" button so much more tempting :D Commented Nov 8, 2011 at 4:02
