I was just checking our listings and noticed that the UK search engines category has completely disappeared from the ODP. It is still in Google, but I can't locate it within dmoz.

It doesn't look as though it has been renamed either, since searches for <edit> other UK search engines</edit> all reveal nothing. It looks like someone has simply killed off the category and all of the sites listed in there.

Is this a mistake or a temporary error?

Looks like they may have moved/deleted it in error. A colleague of mine is an odp editor. She's looking into it and as soon as I know more I'll post an update.

I am not a great fan of the ODP Editors site at

[resource-zone.com...]

However you can ask questions there and can sometimes get a definitive reply. Certainly if you quote the category, you should get a fast answer as to whether ther is a reorganisation going on

Yes. I have also noticed some of my sections missing. Also with the new google update it can not locate the section and dropping the category.

This is a strange. Anyone know when the Dmoz crew will get on to this issue?

The directory is not a static thing. Some categories are moved, some are merged, and some are being deleted all the time.

For example, the United Kingdom search engines category has been moved to Regional/Europe/United Kingdom/Business and Economy/Internet/Search Engines [dmoz.org].
