    As usual I am always trying my best to do my part to help out Jim Noble and the rest of the DMOZ editors. The following topic: Games/Gambling/Chats_and_Forums/

    has the website: Forum4Gamblers - Gambling forum with sections for winners and losers.

    This link is down where you receive the following error: phpBB : Critical Error

    Error creating new session

    DEBUG MODE

    SQL Error : 1194 Table 'f4g4f4g_sessions' is marked as crashed and should be repaired

    INSERT INTO f4g4f4g_sessions (session_id, session_user_id, session_start, session_time, session_ip, session_page, session_logged_in) VALUES ('48f51bcf410633f0d4d194f5e12ff397', -1, 1281616919, 1281616919, '43984244', 0, 0)

    Line : 162
    File : /home/gede188/public_html/forum4gamblers.com/includes/sessions.php

    Please have an editor fix or if you would like I will apply as an editor to fix it. Let me know which you would like to do.

    No, please don't apply to become an editor for a category unless you actually want to be an editor for that category and can find listable sites for that aren't already listed.

    The best place to report sites with issues is the Report Hijacks, Dead Links, Inappropriate ODP Content, and other issues here ONLY thread in this forum. Please use that in the future. Someone will look at the one you've reported here eventually. Please be patient.

    thank you for the feedback and removing the spam that the other forum members posted. I would like to apply as an editor for the http://www.dmoz.org/Games/Gambling/Sports/ or http://www.dmoz.org/Games/Gambling/Sports/Tipping_and_Handicapping/ category as I know just about every good and bad site out there from doing my due diligence on them but feel I probably would not be accepted since I own a sports tipping website. Would that be a conflict of interest? Due to forum rules and guidelines I can not tell you what the site is here but if you Private message me I do believe I am allowed to tell you through there.

    It's not a conflict of interest if you declare it in your editor application and, if accepted, refrain from giving it favourable treatment.

    The trick is to leave your website owner hat at the door when you log in :).

    If you don't trust yourself but still like the idea of editing, choose a starter category of interest where there won't be any temptation. Your home town perhaps.
