That makes sense. We do need to be clear about the whatever the current scope happens to be, I was confused myself until finding this in code https://github.com/openstreetmap/openstreetmap-website/pull/1576/files#diff-3f97cbb8726f3310e0b0c386dbe89e22R31. This should be in  human documentation on the website, along with a description of the procedures, and how to get involved in moderating. Perhaps another short static page like https://www.openstreetmap.org/welcome, linked from /help and from relevant places in the reporting workflow. 

I'm happy to take a try at putting that together, if this makes sense.

> We'll need to suck-it-and-see, but we might need to add more website moderators, if the list of reports is too big for the existing group of moderators and/or administrators to handle. ... So if we find we need to add a few dozen new website moderators just to handle notes, diary_entries etc, then we'll need more fine-grained roles and permissions. 

Will there be anything to help track the number and kind of reports, and how they're being handled?

There's also the issue that type of reported issue (spam vs personal/offensive), may need to be handled differently, with different guidance to moderators, and different processes for selecting moderators.

Is there a process currently for granting moderator status that we can build off, from the DWG?
