But I have another suggestion, as seen in another forum dealing with free software and which might help to reduce the workload to the moderators. There, users can "adopt" one or more programs and are then in charge to keep the record updated. It's usually the one who submits a program, but can also be others for older entries.
I really like that idea however I agree with Andrew. The update forum is the easier rout and for the most part, those who summit applications can "adopt" the programs they submit, more or less, in that they can submit the update in a forum. The adoption program relies on a lot of contributers that are frequently active and committed to their applications. Sounds like herding cats to me.
Also, I am willing and partially able to help. Although it would be cool to be a moderator for such an awesome site, there are others here that have been members longer that would be better suited, but I am willing to help in whatever ways I can. I'm a college student, so I have plenty of time, but absolutely no money.
Let me know...
