It's long been policy that users may not stand for election as a moderator if they have been suspended anywhere on the network during the previous twelve months. If someone with a recent suspension is ineligible to be elected, it stands to reason that a current moderator who receives a suspension ought to lose their diamond (as they wouldn't be eligible to receive one in the first place), but I was unable to find any reference to such a scenario in our official moderator removal processes.
So, if I was elected moderator on Stuff Stack Exchange last month but am suspended today from Nonsense Stack Exchange, do I lose my diamond on Stuff.SE?
- Do I lose my diamond automatically by the very fact of being suspended elsewhere on the network?
- Does being suspended elsewhere on the network automatically trigger one of the formal moderator review processes, and the result of that process will determine whether I lose my diamond?
- Do I keep my diamond, but staff and/or my fellow moderators may decide to manually begin one of the formal moderator removal processes if they deem the circumstances of my suspension to be sufficiently grave to question my ability to continue moderating?
In response to a comment by Makoto, I am aware that many forms of behavior that would lead to a suspension are of such a nature and of sufficient gravity to form the basis for a moderator removal. My question, then, is a procedural one. Are suspended moderators still entitled to their "due process" through the formal moderator removal processes or does diamond loss come automatically, ipso facto from the very occurrence of being suspended (that is, there is no process, no meeting, no minutes, no filings, no opportunity to be heard, etc., just a "you were suspended, your diamond has been revoked" message)?
