Yes. Editors can edit in categories beneath those they are listed in.

I tried to be an editor in a small categor (was for a while two years ago) and was rejected within 30 seconds. No one even could have "evaluated" it.

That's maybe because that category is already occupied with few editors - so it's just an autorespondent to ward off people for that particular category.

There isn't an autoresponder for editor applications. All applications are evaluated by meta editors. If an application is horrible with poor spelling, miscapitalizations and obvious bias towards a site that the applicant is affiliated with, those applications are trashed fairly quickly.

Damn. So you'd better tailor your DMOZ application like you're writing your resume.

As long as you are honest, spell and can demonstrate that you can actually find and list sites in the appropriate category you stand a good chance of being accepted.

So how long do you estimate that they will reply your submission for editor? 1 month ?

>>how long do you estimate that they will reply

Difficult to say. The list of applicants is quite huge, but most applications are dealt with within a few days. It also depends on the category you applied for, but generally it takes less than 1 month.

Applications to our World and Adult categories generally take longer to process than the others, as we have fewer metas available to handle them.
