  Great! Send me your user ID (the number in the URL if your 
profile page) and we'll get you set up as moderator.

  We are not curators in that sense, that is what the voting system is for. Of 
course, we can certainly give comments to the authors, just like any other 
community member, but being a moderator does /not/ give us any right to think 
our view on the fluffier concepts is any more worthy than others (as Scott 
also comments on).
  The only quality note which this moderation is supposed to be for is 
technical quality. Say, for example, an item is in fact an icon theme, but 
isn't packaged in a way that Plasma can consume - that is still an icon theme 
and should stay downloadable from the website, but it makes no sense to see it 
in the Get New Icon Themes dialogue, and so we can mark it as excluded from 
  This is also, of course, why we need both guidelines and instructions for 
moderators, so we can avoid confusion about responsibilities and whatnot :)
