I just got a Moderator Private Message from Super User's Moderator Team. (For Super User moderators only)

Because I failed last few reviews I got this message from moderator. OK I will improve my review task from now onwards.

Now as rules regulations when a user get message from moderator he/she may get a chance to reply back to those moderators.

I too got the same reply page, but to my surprise it is showing ♦ besides my profile name, see the image below:

enter image description here

I know that, the page is designed to reply a private message to those moderator team who reviewed my "review summary".

But my question is why it is showing a ♦ with my Profile name in that page

You've been drafted to be a mod. The changes are still processing through the system, obviously. – Michael Petrotta May 7 '13 at 3:03
@Michael As far as I know, unless there's some weird shenanigans going down on SU, people aren't just flat out drafted for mod positions without their knowledge and consent. – Emrakul May 7 '13 at 3:24
I was joking, @Knights. Not very well, obviously. – Michael Petrotta May 7 '13 at 3:25
@Michael Potentially confusing... writing for the OP, not future readers – Emrakul May 7 '13 at 3:27
You lucky person – Undo May 7 '13 at 4:06
@hims056, I think link is visible to all mods, not only super user mods. – Lucifer May 7 '13 at 4:27
@Lucifer - No. Moderators on other sites are normal users. – hims056 May 7 '13 at 4:27
@hims056, yes agree with you, but my "mod" I meant site mod + community managers and developers too. – Lucifer May 7 '13 at 4:31
@Lucifer - employee & devs can see everithing (AFAIK). So no need to include them ;) However you may edit your question. – hims056 May 7 '13 at 4:44
@hims056, It's ok. I am not blaming you. I was just saying my point of view. :) – Lucifer May 7 '13 at 4:45
I would like to see ♦ next to my name too. :) – Anoop Vaidya May 7 '13 at 6:27
@AnoopVaidya, here you go: Anoop Vaidya ♦ – Ben Lee May 7 '13 at 6:28
Many many thanks Ben. I am top of the world now. :) – Anoop Vaidya May 7 '13 at 6:31
When the private message system was built probably only moderators could use it, without exception. So the diamond was hard coded into the view. After adding exception that allows mortal users to reply they simply forgot about the hard coded diamond. And of course, it's.... Jeff fault! – Shadow Wizard May 7 '13 at 12:13

We regret to inform you that your temporary single-page moderator status has been rescinded. This bug gets fixed in the next build.
