Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
Does this mean I have no chance?
I am not really prepared to apply to become an editor for this reason because
1. it is perhaps the wrong reason
2. I already have plenty to do :-)
any advice appreciated.
I am not sure what the ODP guidelines are for submitting to both a local and general category. But if I had to choose just one category, go for the general category.
Mark thanks for your reply. In looking through the categories I noticed a company I know was listed in two, industry and locality. Can't do anyharm if they manage it but I the general industrial category would be more important.
Yes it does except for the issue that there is not an editor in either of them :-( .. another site I submitted to a cat where there was an editor went into the blue screen of death so I guess I may have better luck with these :-)
I understand editors are overworked but it is a shame not to give at least some automated reply .. e.g.
"the current wait for review in this cat is 3 months thanks for submitting."
As far as the wait is concerned I canít say much. It can be as quick as a few minutes to as long as a year. An editor above will get to the site if there is no editor in the category you submit to.
Brothers eh who needs em !! :-)
any idea how many hours are expected of editors in case I get an urge to volunteer. I expect knowing how it works from the inside editing categories I am interested in might help me in submissions into categories I am working in (not the same).
Is there a time commitment for editors?
There is no time requirement. We appreciate any time you can commit to improving and developing the directory. In order to keep the community thriving, editor accounts will expire after 4 months of inactivity. This allows another editor the chance to take over an area where an inactive editor may have left off.
If your account expires, send an e-mail to ODP Staff to request reinstatement of editing privileges.
If you decide to apply let us know how it goes.

Sometimes! ;) Iím still learning a lot! :)
Will do. Need to be making a little more money from this lark before I can spare the time I think. :-)
Speak to you again about it perhaps and see what happens with those submissions.
BTW anyone had any success submitting to about.com lists are they similar?
