Problems with current (March 2008) article approval system
- Rate of approval too slow
- Too much confusion about what the process is
- No simple, prominently-placed version of instructions
- No easy way to get the word out to specific sets of editors that we want reviews
- No set way for editors to simply review an article and thereby enumerate what an article needs in order to be approvable
