Comment (by Ipstenu):

 Using https://wordpress.org/plugins/rickroll/advanced/ as an example, I've
 uploaded two images for examples of a 'better' layout.

 Important notes:

 1) Support, Reviews, and Advanced View can be left alone for now.

 2) In the absence of a readme...
 2a) plugin 'name' should be the slug (so yes, "Tap-dancing Demons for
 WooCommerce" would be woo-tap-demons)
 2b) 'author' should be whomever is the owner of the plugin (there's a
 field for that)

 3) Never show the header image or the custom icons

 4) CURRENTLY the only things we can show on the status sidebar are
 "Status: Closed" - the other two need to wait for #2860 :D

 The reason we're hiding images and content when possible is that plugins
 are sometimes closed due to guideline/copyright/content issues regarding
 readmes and images. If a dev has a plugin closed for injecting spam-links
 or is using copyright-protected images, we need to hide that for potential
 legal reasons.

 While we can (and will) go in and edit those things for them, I'd rather
 protect them from themselves from the get-go. Makes for less work for US.
