Questions tagged [moderators]

For questions about the moderators of the Role-Playing Games Stack Exchange. The term primarily refers to the elected moderators of the site (also referred to as "diamond" mods, based on the diamond icon that appears next to their usernames to distinguish them as such); it is sometimes also used to refer to regular users who have earned enough reputation to gain relevant moderation privileges. (See also: the [moderation] tag.)
