The funny thing is that Plone is absolutely beautifull for making a 
comunity based site. Using Plone and a few existing products would be 
all that was needed imho to have a vibrant zope.org.

Personally I loved the old zope.org, where you had your own area that 
you could just go wild in.

I know that the problem is people using the site for uploading warez and 
pron, but as it works now where every little piece of content has to be 
approved just sucks. Releasing something, and then finding that you 
forgot to submit a picture used in it, is ... like ... argh.

It could probably be solved better by having two types of members 
'Member' and 'TrustedMember', where the Member would need to submit 
their stuff, but trusted member could do as in the olden days and make 
content visible themself.

While still keeping published content as the only visible thing on the 
official part of the site.
