In a comment on the Language of the Month nominations thread, Peter Taylor raised a valid point:
It might be worth prohibiting nominations of your own language. If a language is genuinely interesting, it should be possible to find someone else who's willing to advocate it; and if you can't find anyone else to advocate it, you're going to be a bottleneck to answering questions in chat etc.
As of this writing, the comment has four upvotes, which indicates to me that several people think prohibiting self-nominations may be a good thing.
On the other hand, when I brought up the issue in chat, some people argued against such a ban:
I'm totally fine with allowing self-nominations. The whole point of voting is to filter out what's actually good.
Destructible Lemon made a salient point:
I'd like to comment that the thing was designed to help people raise awareness of their languages and stuff, not to have a language appreciation club or something
So, what do you think? To self-nominate, or not to self-nominate?
If we decide we don't want self-nominations, I propose that this rule apply only to future nominations. Existing nominations should be allowed to stay.
