To be an admin
Sections you should read if you are interested in being an admin.
Admins: it is recommended that you watch the changes RSS feed to keep informed of what everyone is up to. Then, please document all of your work on here somewhere - that way we will not only have a record, but everyone gets notified about what is going on.
