    DMOZ is still active, as far as I know. You have made one mistake already by submitting your website many times, it wont get you listed any quicker, if at all. I listed my PR5 website over 4 years ago and its not listed.

    I had submitted one website few months back and its not listed yet, i have submitted two more websites last week, hope all this gets listed.

    But i have a feeling that the process of adding websites in dmoz has become slow.

    Just that they are receiving alot of additions, and less people for review.

    So all we need to do is stay calm and just wait.

    Did you read the guidelines that you said YOU HAD READ when you offered the site?

    So if you did what of
    did you not understand?

    So you might be deleted now as spam.

    Some people never get it. maybe they banned you for spamming them! Why did you submit it more than once when the guidelines you agreed to say only do it once? How do you think that those who do not follow the guidelines should be treated? You are your own worst enemy!

    maybe he treated the place like the editors do? Ya know, all that lead by example, whats good for the goose kinda mentality? Ever think that the editors are the worse enemy of the ODP?

    Submitter: SUBMIT ONCE OR GET BANNED!
    Editor: put site in as many categories as it can fit!
    ODP/AOL: Well, I guess we can add in your site TWENTY THOUSAND TIMES, is there anything else we can do for ya Mr. Skrenta?
    Submitter: Submit to the best category or get rejected
    Editor: yeah, it kinda fits here.
    ODP/AOL: Unless its directories, as we really don't want those listed.
    Submitter: Do not have dead links, broken links, spamy sites, cloaked urls, etc etc
    Editor: Only needs to log in once every three months and is in no way shape or form responsible for listed categories once sites have been added.
    ODP/AOL: Fully supports the editor
    Submitter: Must have current and correct content, as out dated material is not helpful to the end user.
    Editor: the end user
    ODP/AOL: has not updated any actual content on DMOZ since when? 1999?


    So as ya can see, while the rules may say one thing, the actions of both AOL and the editors of the ODP are saying (no screaming) something completely different.

    Some categories are still active but some have no editors and it can take years before it get listed (or it might never get listed).

    Yes, it is active but it's no better than any other directory, and it is really hard to get in.

    All categories have hundreds of editors, because there is no name at the bottom does not mean it is without an editor. Anyone higher up the tree can edit in that category and some of us can edit in any category on the whole directory. A name usually, though not exclusively, shows the limit of an editors rights for editing, s/he can edit in any category further down that tree. But as we keep saying, editors are volunteers and every category needs an editor to volunteer their spare, unpaid time to edit in a particular section and, for suggestions to be listed, use that as their resource. No editor is obliged to edit suggested sites. So that is why no one can predict if it will take days or years for a suggested site that complies with guidelines to be listed.

    How much authority? About zero.

    They're not adding links fast enough for anyone to notice. The site has no visitors other than a fistful of stalwart "editors." If they added a link, no one would see it anyway.

    Aren't you glad DMOZ links are worthless? You don't need to feel sad your site isn't featured in that 2002 link farm snapshot.

    My guess is that they abandoned it and it isn't work bothering with it anymore.

    Reasons:
    -look at the design... obsolete, way behind
    -tons of broken old links pointing to inexistent sites
    -I've submitted lots of quality sites to them many years ago (rare, quality, non-commercial niche sites) and the didn't give a poo about them
    -their lists are quite the same as many years ago... no new listings seem to appear (at least in categories I've checked)
    -the volume of submissions by today much have overloaded their system... even if there were like 10 people working on the same category, it wouldn't be easy to manage all that "SPAM"
    -Google's algorithmic changes and the new trends aren't going to give much credit to these obsolete linkfarms
