They'll show up in the comment queue and all moderators will see the flag. The system doesn't hide the flag from the moderator who's comment was flagged. We discuss flags on our own comments and avoid moderating ourselves.
Just to answer this and summarize what already came up in the comments:
Different SE sites have different number of moderators, there is no fixed number of moderator slots. The size of the moderator team is primarily driven by the overall workload of moderating the site (which again depends on the activity level of the site itself, the number of higher-rep ...
All users can (after they've reached a certain reputation level) participate in moderation activities on Ask Different. This is also reflected in the phrase "Ask Different is moderated by you." on the review homepage.
The Help Center lists the moderation privileges you can get; in particular, closing a question (other than your own) is reached at 3,...
Some of what you ask isn’t exposed to any end user whether you’re a new user or trusted user with 20k rep or an elected moderator.
However, most of that data is already available from the periodic data dumps and Stack Exchange data explorer interface.
Comments are trivial to look at:
Thanks for reaching out about this on Meta. I'm the mod who handled the "not an answer" flag on your post, I'm glad to share my thoughts on this.
In general we look for answers which actually answer the question asked, posts comparing the merits of existing answers don't provide that. They may work on classical forum-style sites but not ...
The places to learn more about mod candidates are the Q&A here on Meta and the Election chat room where all the candidates answer questions thrown at them.
Please keep in mind that the site is primarily community moderated, so the individual voting pattern of mods isn't very important. Even their casting of close votes isn't as important nowadays, ...
See https://apple.stackexchange.com/help/privileges/close-questions for some more insights in this area. Basically
Note that once you gain the reputation to vote to close, you should no longer flag for moderator attention to have questions closed or migrated. It is your responsibility to vote now.
It takes 5 close votes to reach the closing ...
You initially asked
It is safe delete everything bellow /private/var/folders/?
Another (more important) question - has the OS X something as rc.6, e.g. an shell script what is running when changing the run level to 6 - e.g. at every reboot? (Or rc.0 at every boot), to where I could add the rm?
Is safe clean the /var/folders/* at every reboot? (asking ...
It is true that some people post comments as answers, but my experience shows that those posts usually do get deleted.
If something answers a question, it should not be flagged as not an answer.
Redundant answers are still answers, and could possibly be worded more clearly than the answers they duplicate.
Wrong answers are still answers, and it not ...
The main point is that flagging to close doesn't actually flag for a moderator. It simply puts the post into the same review queue as voting to close just without a vote.
It's never acceptable to flag for a moderator to close a question regardless of reputation.
There are a lot of reasons why people loose access to their computers, most of them are legitimate. So unless there is a clear indication that something is amiss, these questions are perfectly on-topic and can be answered, often easily by referring the user to the appropriate Apple Support pages or by finding the duplicate question which already has been ...
Anyone who has earned the ability to vote is on their way to site moderation and as you gain more reputation you can case close votes.
Here is the list of people that can cast close votes:
I agree - if you’re sure you want to escalate - contacting the stack employees is an avenue to review any action here. Whether it’s moderators like you (you can access moderation tools due to reputation), elected moderators - going outside the community is always available.
I will link to this overall question on how to question moderator abuse:
I wanted to expand just a bit more on re: the points you made.
Calling out an author of the post which is very bad form. This isn't a forum like Reddit or Disqus. You can be 180° from another answer and that's perfectly fine, but focus on your answer and why it's the correct one.
Secondly, focus on your answer to the question, not a rebuttal or voicing ...
