What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

There are users listed under the "Users" tab. How do I know who the moderators are? Is there any specific thing to look for on a user, I mean a icon or some other sign? How do I contact a moderator? Is the a way other than using "flag" link?

How do I know who the moderators are?

There's a moderators tab on the users page that lists them all.

Is there any specific thing to look for on a user, I mean a icon or some other sign?

Moderators have a diamond (♦) next to their names, in posts and comments:

How do I contact a moderator? Is there a way other than using "flag" link?

You generally should just use the "flag for moderator attention" button. You can also post on the site's meta (linked from the top bar), but that is obviously public and can be seen by other users on the site. There is no other built-in way to contact moderators, but they often list e-mail addresses on their profiles you can use if absolutely necessary. You can contact the site developers via the "contact us" link at the bottom of any page, but that's not the same group.
