This question already has an answer here:

This proposal has a large amount of users, but none of them have over all of the Privileges if I am not mistaken. So this leads me to ask "Who are the Moderators? And how are they moderating?

When I click the moderation tab, nothing appears. This is not my first beta, but I was not able to be that active on the other ones.

There are no moderators in the community other than the SE staffers, at the moment.

Here's how and when Stack Exchange chooses the pro-tempore moderators for a new site, quoting from this blog post:

About a week into the public beta, we will seek out members who are deeply engaged in the community’s development; members who:

Have a reasonably high reputation score to indicate active, consistent participation.

Show an interest in their meta’s community-building activities.

Lead by example, showing patience and respect for their fellow community members in everything they write.

Exhibit those intangible traits discussed in A Theory of Moderation.

For the time being, we are relying on SE staffers to take care of issues we can't take care of ourselves (responding to flags, for example).

  • Yes, that is correct. Robert Cartaino has been approving / rejecting my tag wiki edits (and pretty much everyone elses') while no user has that privilege yet. – Unihedron Dec 14 '14 at 4:02
