Some of you have been asking me why it is not possible to submit your website to one of the most important of all the Internet directories, DMOZ.

It’s been frustrating that the service has been unavailable since late October.

Poor old DMOZ’s servers crashed, and they found themselves in the embarrassing position of not having a backup of their data…. Ooops

Using sources that mirrored their data (such as Google,) DMOZ have been slowly rebuilding their database. Editors have been working on trying to recreate and clean up data.

But here’s the most important fact for some of you: if you had submitted your site and it was awaiting approval in the queue, then your queued entry has been lost. You need to resubmit to DMOZ.
