    Well I'm sure people know sites I don't so yes, a straw poll. But if anyone wants to take it further that's fine. Of those mentioned so far Romow and Dirjournal I'd say are great directories and Lobolinks is strong and promising. Enquira I'd never heard of but is an excellent example with topical and regional categories most of which are populated. Dirbuzz and previously unmentioned Devwebdirectory look good, great designs etc. but let down (imho) by lack of content.

    robjones said something about being a traditionalist and if I understand him I concur that the best a directory can offer is well-edited links to sites which offer unique content in relevant categories.

    I like Joeant because I have my own Anthill there. A good place to learn about directory editing and help populate a great directory. :)

    I have to agree. JoeAnt is a fine example of a high quality volunteer driven directory.

    Joe Ant and skaffe are also very good - but certainly no new. I think the original idea of the persons thread was to name a really good new directory?

    Yup, your right, I was looking at all the posts and saw, Yahoo, BOTW, Dmoz and it threw me off.

    In what way? Corrupt editors and endless review times?

    Are we talking free or paid directories?

    Do you have any proof that the editors of the Dmoz directory are corrupt?

    And to the coward who red-repped me on Dec 30th 2008 8:09 pm, stating "you were paid to say that", the answer is NO, I wasn't. I don't even know the owners of the directories I recommended.

    The reasons are
    1) The links listed there are high quality?
    2) No deadlinks/broken links?
    3) Fastest approval among all the directories?
    4) Most honest editors?
    5 and on and on.. :rolleyes:
