Looking at a particular proposal, the "edited by" section shows that a former staff member (Jeff Atwood) edited it. However, for some reason, a diamond appears next to his username:

enter image description here

Jeff Atwood was an employee, but left the company and his employee/mod status on every site was removed, so there shouldn't be a diamond displayed next to his name.

This can be replicated with different users, but I'm not sure if it's limited to former employees.

    This isn't specific to staff. Area 51 keeps track of sites where a user had a diamond before the site was closed, and includes that in the total number. It's primarily there to keep track of users who were moderators on a site that no longer exists, but I'm not sure there's any way for it to differentiate that for staff given we eventually delete the database. We'd have to somehow remove diamonds for closed sites. @V2Blast (This affects staff profiles going pretty far back, including Robert, Jay, Jon, Shog, etc)
