|Is DMOZ alive?|

For you who don’t know, DMOZ is the largest human edited link directory on the web. If you have a website you follow some guidelines and submit it to the directory.
It used to take about 3 weeks to 4 months till someone read your submission and approved it or rejected it. If you got rejected no one would tell you and you wouldn’t know what to do. If DMOZ editors accepted you request you get an email stating that and your website is in the directory.
A lot of other directory applications, modules and components use DMOZ as their base data. If you got in to DMOZ, after a week or so your link would be in at least 500 other websites, which is pretty good.
In the past year I’ve submitted about 5 new, unique content websites to DMOZ and got no reply. I can’t see a reason for my website to get rejected from the directory and off course I didn’t get any explanation. Could it be that DMOZ is dead? I’ve even tried to get in as an editor and got no reply.
If DMOZ is a dead or dying project someone should pick up the glove and create a replacement or buy it. It’s a massive database of knowledge and hard work.
