Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
We get the reviews in our anthills randomly, just as it was in Go.com. You can do reviews when your are a level 2 ant. The more you review sites the more sites will appear in your anthill. So it doesn't matter in which topic you add a site. The only problem can be that a reviewer won't review the site because he/she doesn't know what to do with it. The site will be queued again, and will go to another reviewer.
but in general, editors are assigned by cat (generally they choose a topic that interestes them and that's where they edit). I see, now, how joeant breaks from that - but at risk of sterotyping directories my comments still stand.
popular cats will be swamped with submissions where as less popular cats will not - the work load is not even - thus the problems.. hmm something to think about..
Not all directories were created equal ;-)
Both free submissions and paid submissions are held to the same standards with the only exception being that paid submissions are handled by staff and are reviewed within two days. This opens the door for webmasters needing rapid inclusion in the directory.
Regarding free submissions that havenít been listed yet. Topics with active editors will review submissions quickly while topics that have no editor cause a backlog of pending submissions.
To help overcome this problem, Team Support has a special feature that lists all pending submissions in the order submitted. This list covers all submissions in every topic--listing the oldest submission first. Team Support works off this list everyday to ensure all sites are reviewed in as timely a manner possible. Also, our committee members have full access to the directory and are working in topics where there currently isnít an assigned editor or the editor has become inactive.
Hope that helps to clear up any misunderstandings because in time all submissions are reviewed.
