Ready to Become an ODP Editor at Dmoz.org?

SMS Text

Less than a week after motsa’s announcement at the Resource Zone Forum for Dmoz Editors that the Abuse Form is available again (see SEJ coverage here), was another update posted by the Dmoz Directory Meta Admin with the nick name “photofox”.

I received the email notification Friday night and was curious what the news are. It seems that almost everything is now back and online again at the Open Directory Project.

“Photofox” announced:

The Editor Application System is available again. For more information on applying to become an editor for the Open Directory Project please see http://dmoz.org/help/become.html

The Dmoz Directory was coming online again on 01/14/2007. The Directory was offline since October 2006. I provided some background information about it back in January.

It says nothing about existing applications. I applied back in October for a position as Editor, right before it went down. I did not receive anything regarding it yet, but I expect that I will within the next 2-4 weeks, IF applications from before the crash were recovered.

I am a bit pessimistic and think that the application form is just for new applications and is a partially rewritten module based on old and partially recovered code. We will find out I guess.
