I just noticed that the Sheriff badge holders does not include Sklivvz. This badge is described as:

Served as an elected moderator for at least 1 year.

From what I see, he was elected in the 2012 Moderator Election. So he fulfilled the requirements over 4 years ago.

I am aware that he is a former SE employee so there might be some collision with the SE-employee super powers he probably had by May 11 '13 when the other elected members got this bage.

  • Weird. Occasionally I see people link little scriptlets that show SE's actual code for calculating stuff like who gets a badge. Does anyone know how to look that up here? Looking at the code might reveal the bug.

    I think there should be a badge for noticing stuff like this.

I should have both Constable and Sheriff (as I was a pro-tem and then an elected mod). The problem is that for some reason which I don't remember we put up a black list to prevent this badge from being awarded to devs.

OTOH it's weird because e.g. Marc Gravell doesn't have it on Stack Overflow where he was a mod, but animuson and bluefeet do. Hmmm.
