Don't worry. The QGIS "ecosystem" is growing, so it takes some time to grasp 
it all ;) Anyway, glad to see you're ready to act :)

Great! Thanks. There are more points on the TODO list, hopefully I'll be able 
to come back do the development later this year.

One remark, it should be placed inside "User Plugins" rather than in the top 
level (your problems seem to be a bug, it should work). 

Hey Admins, can anybody move it or should we remove it & create again?

Oh yes! Such instructions would be precious. A common help webpage for whole 
the hub would be the easiest to implement, and hopefully enough. The present 
link to oryginal redmine guide is quite unsuitable for most users.
Instead of mailing, the user could see his unapproved plugins and their status 
on the list. In this case the admin could just fill a note for ech plugin (e.g. 
"please fix A and B"). And the user would be informed about plugin metadata

It's a bug I think. I was told already about problems with creating projects 
inside this section. But for me it works well. Don't you see an "Add 
subproject" button on http://hub.qgis.org/projects/qgis-user-plugins ?
