As for the whole moderation thing though, well it took me a while to figure out what was going on. I tried to search the site on moderating nodes, but found only bits and pieces.

I just suggested a node for moderation, and after seeing every other moderation suggestion as (user-name) reason, I thought I would follow the accepted standard and put my user-name in parentheses--only to find out it was provided automatically. Needless to say, I'm a little embarsed that my first moderation suggestion starts out as: "(srawls) (srawls)." Oh well, I guess it just takes time to learn : )
