    Just wondering. I really want to post something, but I'm not sure if it's appropriate or not.

    Why would knowing who the mod is make something appropriate or not?

    You should be able to contact and ask moderators and/or supervisors about such questions. You can find a list of them here.

    "Just post it" really is bad advice. Trying to avoid potential issues really is appreciated most of the time.

    Mods are omnipotent.
    They monitor all.

    ...and the general rule of thumb is "If you have to ask, the answer is no" when it comes to appropriateness.

    A little late but to answer your question at the moment the moderating team consists of just global mods and supervisors, and both those groups have power forum wide. You can group PM multiple mods and supervisors at one time if you have a question like the one in your opening post, the benefit of that is you are more likely to get a fast reply and multiple staff will be aware you had permission to post whatever you asked to post if you get it.

    So in the case of group PM multiple mods, what happens if one mod approves and another disagrees? Who monitors on top of that then?

    Generally in these circumstances we tend to agree, but as has happened at least once in the past in a group PM with a member if we don't all agree we will have a brief discussion either amongst ourselves or in the PM so that we can reach a consensus.
