    I tried to sign up recently, spent a long time filling out the form and making sure I was recommending quality sites that were both not in the directory and not affiliated with me.

    When I hit submit, it sent me to a page for being reinstated as an editor...nothing else. No e-mail stating they received the application etc.

    I know I applied back in 1999 or something but was never contacted then either.
    Not sure if I should try again or not. I can't tell whether the application was even submitted properly.

    Thoughts?

    Maybe they accepted you in 1999 and just didn't bother to tell anyone. Then they fired you for not doing your job. Now they're telling you how to apply for reinstatment. Then they'll accept you back but not tell you. Then when you don't add any sites, they'll fire you...

    You could ask at the Resourceless Zone :D :D

    I don't have the email anymore - the gist of it was that one possible reason for my rejection was a motivation for promoting my own site.

    That's what I get for admitting I had one in the que.

    and they have publicly stated that it is "ok to become a DMOZ editor for the reason of getting your own web sites listed".

    Not to mention the fact that the guy who rejected you probably became an editor for the same reason he claimed made you unworthy :D

    Yes. I though it was a legitimate concern untill I started reading this forum. Perhaps I actually got rejected for a different reason. I'll try again and see what happens.

    PS - The letter stated that my rejection was possibly due to one of the 4 reasons listed in the email. The feedback was not very helpful, inlight of the fact that editors are in fact allowed to approve their own sites.

    I will review the guidlines again and give it another go - perhaps better luck next time :)
