The Sheriff badge is currently awarded to users who have
Served as an elected moderator for at least 1 year.
This was correct when elections were tied to a site graduating from beta; however, we now have pro-tem elections and the winner of the first pro-tem election received a Constable badge, like his colleagues who were appointed.
To further complicate matters, we now have a bunch of sites which
have graduated aren't betas anymore but haven't held an official permanent election yet, and it's unclear at the moment if/when those will take place. So "Served as an elected moderator on a graduated site for at least 1 year." wouldn't be correct either. "Served for at least 1 year as an elected moderator for life." would technically be better but highly confusing IMHO.
Any thoughts for a better wording? Or shouldn't we bother at the moment since the site lifecycle is still being discussed by the Community Team?
Oh, and if the non-beta sites aren't graduated, as mentioned by @Catija in a comment, we need to adjust Constable's description as well; I got one right after the announcement, as if Chess Stack Exchange were graduated:
Served as a pro-tem moderator for at least 1 year or through site graduation.
