I am having MAJOR problems attempting to become an editor with ODP - seriously..
I have tried about 4-5 times now, by filling in the app form. , for an area I specialise in. I found that initially the senior editor that replied was really helpful, and gave some pointers on re-applying - fine. After following these tips and coming up with an application i thought was perfect - it was again rejected with no reason (and a different editor reviewed it). The original editor told me he was not sure why it was rejected, but to perhaps to try the category below it (smaller category) - I did, and guess what rejected. Apparently the sample site was listed elsewhere. Now I KNOW that the sample site I suggested was GREAT for the category I had chosen.
I then sent an email off directly to ODP, as well as an editor asking for some help....and have also reapplied to be an editor again.....it has been over a week - have not heard back from anyone...
I simply wanted to get involved with this great concpet I thought ODP was - no hidden agenda - just wanted to share some of my knowldge freely, and spend some of my free-time helping out....I am now getting a little upset at the whole thing!
CAN ANYONE HELP ME?
