Check out our curators Top

Curators are experts in every field of design and development. For instance, if you want to be a jQuery list curator, you need to be a JavaScript developer, or if you want to be a freebie curator, you need to be a graphic designer, and this applies for every curator in every discipline. They have the power of doing all the things a regular user does, but their main function is to "enhance and improve" the quality of resources by adding descriptions, correcting typos, deleting harmful links, improving the images and rating, so the content delivered gets better overtime.
