You need to be smart. Like me. 8)

But seriously, just review three sites that are not already listed honestly and unbiasly with proper language. Choose a category that you are really interested in, that way you can explain better why you want to be an editor of that one.

DMOZ quote
Quote:
We do not bar editors with business affiliations, since those editors with their own sites usually know their competition and related sites better than anyone. This knowledge can be ideal for helping build an authoritative directory. However, we will not tolerate editors who only add their own sites, or maliciously interfere with others' listings in the directory.


Should I mention that I want my site in that catagory.

Another thing, after you get in, never argue with the metaeditors. This won't be good for your health.

Let me tell you a story. A website was listed in the right category once upon a time. Then I became a dmoz editor. And next day I discover that website in another category which I firmly believe is less relevent than the previous one. And I moaned and groaned and requested that the site be restored back to its rightuous category, which had a pr of 5, But it was to no avail. And so it goes to this day. In dmoz, meta editors are all in all. :roll:

I don't think that would be a good idea. They don't like people who wants to be an editor just to include his/her website. That would violate its noble goal. Be an editor with good conscience. Whatever you get is just extra.

I think I should add more to the last post and make things clearer. You must definitely mention that you are associated with this and that website. But don't just come out and say that you will add your site first thing in the morning.

Meta editors can edit any or many categories as opposed to the normal ones who can edit only the one/s he is assigned to.

In Denmark it takes about 24 hours to get a response. My guess is that it takes a bit longer in the english speaking part of the category.

You can be an editor in as many categories as you wish and DMOZ/your meta allows you to.
