    It's so difficult to come up with something for the Z.

    It is not a myth. It is a recognized fact. One of the editor FAQ's covered the point. They said they have no problem with people joining just to list their site as long as they follow the rules and list all suitable sites.

    As for only adding 5 sited. What can I say. It is a very limited scope category. My submission was the only in the unreviewed list. I had to go out and find the new ones myself. I would love to add more, just need to find them.

    There's really only one category that is active at DMOZ by now:

    Become an editor | List your sites | Block competitive sites from getting in | Block owners of competitive sites from becoming editors | Regional | Non regional |Where the hell are we again? | Burn out | Complain about another editor | Have your DMOZ login account deactivated
    Code (markup):

    I just wish my section were a little larger. I keep going to check every couple days and I just don't have new sites being listed. I know its a very specific section but I woulda thought more would be trying to get listed. I may try to take on a bit more or maybe go a level up. Wonder how hard it is to ask for more. I think if some of you guys would get accepted and you got into it you would change your minds about it. Maybe not but I think so. Well I am going to keep up with mine at least every 2 to 3 days and I am going to request a little more. We will see what happens.

    I read the guidelines for asking for a second cat. They recommend something like 50 edits. That will take like for ever. I am thinking of applying for greenbuster on one of the not-so-tiny adjacent cats. I do use google to try to find appropriate sites to add to my cat. Just haven't found any. Oh for the joy of someone submitting a site to my cat that fit. Being the noob editor I am I wouldn't mind spending the half hour to work up a title / description that fit their requirements.

    From what I read, and it held true for me, getting accepted is pretty easy. First, pick a cat that you have some knowledge and it not very big, but most importantly, list three good additions to the cat when you apply for it.

    They claim that most additions come from editor submissions and not public submissions, so the ability to find sites and write a good title and description would logically be the prime criterion for selecting an editor. At least that makes some sense to me.

    I have seen none of what I read on the forums that bash dmoz. But then again, I am not in the highly competitive real estate, online pharmacy or adult industries. I have always worked in fields that welcomed competition..

    True. When you are a car lover, you tend to appreciate other car lovers' enthusiasm and sites as well. in real estate it's cut throat city

    Poor cbp... I'm sure it must be frustrating to him but he is in grave danger of becoming just another Resourceless Zone clone:

    "If you're not happy with the service ask for a refund."

    That's sad. He used to be someone I respected.

    He is not stating his own opinion, he has become a mouthpiece for the others and no longer speaks his own mind. Talking about being pimped out and wasted.

    I always thought of him as a bright guy with some integrity, when you get him off the subject of DMOZ. Too bad he hasn't chosen a more worthy cause to defend. :(

    I applied for a category that had no editor - only had 7 sites - and was unrelated to my own web site. I am a web designer, and the category I applied for was "womens recreational aviation".

    A day later I recieved a scathing email accusing me of trying to promote my own professional interests.

    PS - I was an Army helicopter pilot for 7 years. Perhaps the editors at DMOZ are better qualified...
