I want to submit 3 new sites to DMOZ on 3 seperate topics in hopes of getting 1 of them in. I previously submitted a site about 6 months ago with no luck, hoping one of these might take.

Anyhow, when I submit I was thinking of using differnt emails so they don't know I submitted a bunch of sites at once as then they might think they are spam (which they aren't). Am I being too cautious or shoudl i go ahead and used the webmaster@domain.com for each submission.

Any tips would be great for those that have submitted multiple sites at once before.

Thanks!

I once tried to submit a site from my office, which uses some combination of proxy/firewall which disguises IPs. I got a reply like "sorry, your submission was not accepted because we canīt identify your IP". So, for sure, dmoz tries at least to verify your IP.

About using the same email, I can say that I have more than a few dozen sites listed, all legitimate, all with the same email. This doesnīt seem to be an issue sith dmoz.

Using different emails would make it look like you were trying to hide something, don't you think? If the sites are listable according to ODP guidelines, then I wouldn't worry about email addresses or IPs.

Submitting (within the guidelines) the home pages of three different sites hardly counts as spamming, especially if they're on different topics.
