Outsourcing sounds like a good idea.

Since when is this around? There are 7 skins, some of which were
uploaded in 2008. Is that all there is for now?

The website confused me, especially the knowledge, events and people
tabs. And the status message, events and jobs bloat at the bottom of the
page. Also, what are "internet channels", "plugins" and "playlist
parsers" ? Maybe there should be a help page describing that (or linking

If we are admins, what does it involve? Anything that might make us
legally responsible as content editors in the EU sense? What if the
website goes blatantly unmodered with legally-questionable add-ons,
and companies start complaining and accuse us of linking to a website
well-known for providing for piracy?
