The SE team quietly introduced the Constable badge reserved for pro-tem modraters. On this site, that means Oak, Juan and Grace.


I am pleased to announce that these members have stepped up and generously volunteered their time to help us assure that each community’s issues are properly addressed:

End of flashback. You may remove your sepia glasses now.

Now, the badge's been awarded... to Juan and Oak.

    In case you have a memory short circuit like I almost had: Grace's ascension to employeedom happened after the graduation at around the 2nd elections; the whole point of that round, indeed, was to find mods to replace her. That happened way after the site graduation in ~October 2010.

Employees are excluded in code from getting those badges. I haven't got them for Skeptics.

    Well, I'm glad you've found the reason for the bug :P Can't you just hardcode yourselves in the relevant SQL query or something?

    The problem is, we all look like pro-tem mods on every site, and the same query is used on every site. The same code that excludes me from getting the badge on every site but Webmasters also excludes me from getting it on Webmasters, or it becomes an unmaintainable mess.
