    Dmoz?

    For the last 3 months i have been trying to get into dmoz.org with it continually being 'temporarily unavailable'.

    Does anyone know whats happened? Will it ever be running again?

    Apparently they had a catastrophic server failure and lost a lot of data. No one knows when, or if, they will be back up and running.

    It is back up for editors, but submissions are still down.

    Yes, they are planning to keep it going and are even looking to make changes, improvements, etc.... certainly needed.

    Dmoz is dead. I wouldn't worry too much about a dmoz listing at this point.

    Even after they relaunch, if they even do, it will probably just be business as usual. So who cares?
