Is the DMOZ (open directory) submit feature broken? I have not been able to submit to it all last week. The submission form comes up (http://dmoz.org/cgi-bin/add.cgi), but when I hit "Submit", either nothing happens, or the request is broken, or dmoz tells me that the resource has moved and can no longer find the target url (http://dmoz.org/cgi-bin/addnew.cgi).

Has anyone else had problems recently? Thanks, SC

I have not been able to submit to the DMOZ either. This is not cool.

Half of the time I can't even get into www.dmoz.org--their server is down. Is this directory no longer viable?

If so that would be very sad. I hope somebody knows what's going on and has good news.

Thank-you Web Master World - actually you members. I knew I'd find the answer here!

My services for new or completely revised Web sites include a "free" submission to dmoz. My attempts several times over the past two days for my latest client failed. I am relieved to at least have an answer, even though it's not the best news.

couple of other threads on this topic. Is anyone else still having trouble submitting? Just wondering if it's just me, or still a systemic bug.

We are not the ODP help desk. Any specific questions about sites should be taken up through proper ODP channels. We are not affiliated with them, and we have no power to fix them when they go down or change their policies.

I finally got in today, though admittedly I might have if I tried several (who knows how many) days ago.
