OK,

am I just a big dud? I went to the AV submit page and found a blurb for Looksmart as well. Have they been doing that long and I just missed the boat?

Lookee here [doc.altavista.com]

OK...another question. You don't get the "Your page has just been spidered" message any more, you get "Your page has been put in the queue to be processed"

Did I miss the boat on this as well?

Yeah they use Looksmart for the directory on the home page, the ODP to Looksmart transition started quite some time ago, but I think the page your talking about showed up about a month ago.....

They switched the "submitted" message several months ago (same time you heard people stop asking about the too many pages submitted message) I think they switched it too cut down on all the complaint mail (basically they just made it more difficult to tell if your banned).
