Like a month ago I signed up on Zeal, I passed the exam to be a contributor.
Now, like 2 weeks ago I added a couple of sites. In their history, they show no activity more than mine, so it seems nobody will ever review them.
Could anybody explain what am I missing here?
Am I supposed to also take the Editor exams, pass them and then review my own contributions?

Sometimes it can take a while for sites to get reviewed. I don't know what the time frame is these days, but if it's just been two weeks, I wouldn't worry that it will never happen.

I haven't really been involved in Zeal in almost 2 years but when I became a member I seem to recall the member quiz wasn't that hard. If you really want it to be added quickly I would encourage you to just pass the membership quiz and add it yourself. Years ago if none of the volunteer zealots reviewed a zeal contribution one of the Looksmart Editors would review it after a week or two. That gave the volunteers enough time to handle the majority of the submissions but a short enough time that submissions were always handled in a timely fashion.

Bottom line though, I am not sure I would care much whether I was listed in Zeal because the traffic they deal with has been anemic ever since their deal with MSN expired.
