Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

During the private beta users have the option to flag a post (I haven't tried but I assume flagging is functional). Since it is still private beta the moderators have not been selected yet. Who gets notified of flagged posts?

The Stack Overflow staff (or a subset of) are moderators from the start of a private beta.

This is correct. Typically, there are 7-10 Moderators from the Stack Overflow staff when the site is created. – Robert Cartaino Aug 5 '10 at 3:12

The "valued associates" are moderators from the start. Additionally, users with enough rep to have access to the 10k tools can see spam and offensive flags.

During a private beta, nobody is going to have the rep high enough for access to the moderation tools. Though the rep points are lowered it takes a bit during the public beta for anyone to get close to the moderation tools at 2K. – Rebecca Chernoff Aug 5 '10 at 1:26
@RebeccaChernoff It's 1k for private betas, 2k for public; so it is actually quite achievable. We're on day 3 at Aviation, and a few people are almost at mod tools. – Danny Beckett Dec 20 '13 at 16:21
