Bill the Lizard, a moderator on Chat, said that he can star his own messages. I don't think anyone should be allowed to star their own messages on Chat, even moderators. I don't see how it could be useful, so I think that this is a bug and should be removed.

    In my own defense, someone asked me to try it. I'm not just that vain. ;) – Bill the Lizard Jul 14 '10 at 23:03

    I see you're very addicted to the new chat feature. You should totally drop that and try jQuery. – Jon Seigel Jul 14 '10 at 23:04

  • If you're an owner you can star your own messages. Not that I know exactly how?!?!?! – Lee Louviere Sep 29 '11 at 16:21
  • @Xaade: you can pin 'em, but you can't star 'em. – Andy E Sep 29 '11 at 19:52

Yea; it does seem like it should be.

  • what link did that???? The edit, or flag. Certainly not Andy's head? – Lee Louviere Sep 29 '11 at 16:30

Room owners can also star their messages, but the process of going about this actually appears as a legitimate bug and not an allowed power.

  • It's the same for mods, they can't actually star their own messages, but they can pin/unpin them to end up with a star – Michael Mrozek Sep 29 '11 at 16:26
  • Oh noes.... they found my trick. Don't take it away!!!! – Lee Louviere Sep 29 '11 at 16:28
  • I used to get a sense of accomplishment when my messages were starred. Now that I have the cheat-code, the game isn't fun to play anymore. – Lee Louviere Sep 29 '11 at 16:29
