I think it's a little absurd to suggest yourself. It's not a position to apply for and it's not like a DD feature. If there was some responsibility or activity that could only be performed by seniors such as with CVs, then it would make more sense to apply. An accolade that represents a form of peer recognition, and which is decided by the community and Fiona is not the sort of thing to request for yourself.  What would you say? 'I feel I've done enough to be recognized and as such, I deserve to be suitably honored'? It just sounds weird.
People can suggest themselves if they want, but I think the question would be far more interesting if it was, "what would you think of someone who suggested themselves for Seniority?" considering it's an accolade, not a position... :D
That would be indeed, a great question! :D

I agree with what Synfull said about how suggestions should come from the community and not the individual, and I agree with the points that photofroggy made here:…
Interesting opinions! \o\

I agree with most of those who said no. It feels kinda selfish to nominate yourself. Having another person nominate you means that someone believes that you've contributed to the community, which seniority is. And plus, having another person nominate you feels a lot more special since someone else believes that you're a great person!

I don't think people should be able to self-suggest for seniority. I'm with what Synfull and 3wyl said.

I don't think it'd be a good idea.. Personally I think it'd be nice and kind of cheerful if someone else suggested me for example, you know? ;)
I'm totally suggesting you! :la:
