As of 5 minutes ago, I was a moderator simply due to my 2.5k rep and commitment to Chiphacker carrying over. Now, however, I'm unable to close my own duplicate question. I still have access to the moderation tools, but I don't have the diamond by my name, or the ability to singlehandedly close a question. Something is going on here.

Is this intentional? Should we start asking who the moderators are going to be, or maybe wait a few days to see who emerges as leaders in the beta?

I think it would be a good thing for those who were active moderators on Chiphacker to continue their role here, at least for the duration of the beta.

This is something you should follow up on with Robert Cartaino -- email him at rcartaino@stackoverflow.com
