  • For some reason the election/1 site lists me before Joseph but links the image to Joseph's and his image to my user account. – Martin Scharrer Mar 2 '11 at 6:57

Interesting: the election statistics page by Yi Jiang shows a different result, at least for now.

  • I suspect it just picks up on who the current moderators are, on the basis that after the election they should be the winners. – Joseph Wright Mar 1 '11 at 21:39

    The site obviously took the easy way out. – Stefan Kottwitz Mar 1 '11 at 21:45
  • It looks like so, because other sites with only one previous moderator as candidate only show this one as elected and no-one else. – Martin Scharrer Mar 1 '11 at 23:09
