Wondering About Your Dmoz Submission?
Posted 18 September 2003 - 03:18 PM
Your best bet is to visit the Resource Zone forum and ask the editors there if they'll check up on your submission for you.

I guess all good things must come to an end. They might as well shut down RZ then? Does it have any other uses?

I think they're going to find a big jump in volume in their "How to submit" forum, probably about equal to the volume of posts that used to show up in the "Submission status" forum.
Maybe they should bring on board a second group of volunteers who don't have editor powers, but who can let people know the status of their submission. Or even code an automatic status checker that will at least let people see where they stand.
Absolutely, no question, the best thing to do is what Jill recommends: submit your site and forget about it. That was the best thing to do even when you could easily submit a question to the status check forum and expect to get a prompt answer. And, yeah, getting a listing in DMOZ isn't really a "make or break" for any site; nice to have, for sure, but certainly never a requirement in any way.
But that's contrary to human nature -- the innate dislike of "unfinished business" is part of the psychological bag of tricks top sales professionals use all the time to convince us to buy whatever it is they're peddling. Most of us can't resist going back to check at least once or twice, just to see if we're in there.

I've submitted many sites that were in compliance with the standards. However, is was months and even over a year before anything was done. It would be nice to know if it were on the shelf, at least.

This is a good idea IMO. Hopefully the programmer (is there more than one?) who AOL pays to work on the infrastructure can implement something along these lines without too much trouble. Of course, fixing the public search function would also be nice.

Read a few of this week's editor/meta responses in R-Z and you will see that what they are doing is a good thing for the whole ODP. More time will be focused on building the quality directory that the whole Project centers on. The editor applications under review at the moment will probably be dealt with quicker too.
As a spin-off, quality sites with contents that the ODP charter defines as important to the Project will have a better chance of being found and included when the chaff that results from people like our 15 site link farm spammer in another section of this forum, no longer obscures the editors vision.

Let's hope you're right. Didn't happen before there was an RZ though...

Hmmm... I see a whole bunch of people applying...
