Editor Request: Is DMOZ alive?

Discussion in 'ODP / DMOZ' started by simamura, Aug 9, 2012.

    Hello.
    I applied as DMOZ editor near two weeks ago, but still have no answer for them.
    Can someone tell me when will I get the answer?

    Thank you.

    You would have recieved an email from them accepting the application and if i remember rightly, you had to click on the link within the email to validate it.

    Reviews can take a short while, especially if you apply for a non-english speaking category. Im sure that some Meta will volunteer to review your application shortly.

    Good Luck:)

    Your application is awaiting evaluation by a volunteer meta editor.

    I agree with..Dmoz is taking way too much time to look at your site and approve or disapprove that. I have submitted more 10 sites in last 3 years but none of them get approved.. don't understand their policy.

    I applied to English category and I didn't submit site, I applied as editor. Also I confirmed my email by clicking the link in the confirmation email.

    So you have been told by Jim that your application is waiting, what more do you want to know, DMOZ operates on volunteers and it awaits a volunteer offering to review the application. That's how it works, like it or lump it, it is as it is!

    You also did not understand that this thread was about editor applications and NOT site suggestions. A pattern of not understanding?

    OMG, lol, certainly not the fun stuff you are stuffing into your pipe.

    reply to reply to statement:


    The statement above is the assumption that a site was submitted, the reply to the statement was to correct the wrong assumption and has nothing to do with what jim said or the crack you smoke.

    Forget Dmoz. Perhaps they're keeping it there, because they still don't know what to do with it or, because some of the sites in it are still considered "quality sites" or, they are trying to divert the attention of SEO-ers...

    There are several strong reasons why Dmoz should be disregarded:
    -they must be full with submissions, requests... I cannot imagine their "inbox"...
    -they don't have enough editors... I guess they should have at least several programmers, but hundreds, thousands of editors only to make it work well, smooth...
    -Dmoz was important a long time ago, when AltaVista was still a good search engine... they shut it down... Dmoz will probably have a similar fate
    -ancient obsolete design reflects the fact that no-one touched it for about a decade or more...
    -tons of broken URLs, sites that have been shut down years ago - these URLs are still there! (nobody seems to want to take them down!)
    -I've submitted sites almost a decade ago, many sites to many categories and since then as well (very good, non-commercial sites, some were the best in their niche) - none got approved
    -I've been watching the categories to which I've submitted: no links get added at all!
    -since Panda and Penguin, I guess there will be more and more reasons not to pay much attention to Dmoz

    dmoz has and will always be a "submit it and forget it" type of thing ;)
    Submit your site to the correct categories, then move and and don't spend any time wondering if it was accepted.

    I'm thinking of asking for reinstatement... is there a lapse that is too long? Its been a while.

    Is Apollo working? My cats were always very unkempt (far more than I could manage on my own) and Apollo made it fun to do one niche at a time etc. While I couldn't get through everything atleast progress was made.

    It would be good to see you back.

    I don't think there is a time period that poses a problem, I saw someone come to a category that was tiny when they left years ago and at their return it was huge!

    Many of the old editor tools do not work with DMOZ2, there are some new ones.

    You can request reinstatement at any time, it does not matter how long you were gone.
