And I set myself as the only default reviewer.
Works great, I am the gatekeeper for other people's PRs, except that when it is my own PR, my approval doesn't count, so I can't merge it.
I feel like I'm missing something. Is there any way around this?
Yep this is REALLY REALLY annoying, I currently turn off the merge check prevention, merge it, and turn it back on after. Because merging can take some time, you might have to waste your time waiting as well before you can switch it back.
