    At the bottom of category I want to register my website I see sign: Volunteer to edit this category. Does it mean that I have to wait until dmoz.org will find the necessary editor to review my website? How should I act if I want to be registered as soon as possible (no more than 6 months)?

    No. Some 200 of us can edit in any category that we wish - and we do.

    You might have misunderstood our objectives and how we operate here. ODP is a volunteer organisation building a directory as a hobby. Editors edit where they wish, when they wish and as much as they wish within the constraints of their permissions. We have no schedules or systems to force people to do work that they don't volunteer to do. ODP is not primarily a free listing service for website owners and it does not attempt to process their listing suggestions within the time scales desired by them.

    Some volunteer will process your listing suggestion in time but we can't predict who or when that might be. Elapsed times can range from a few days to a few years. There is no need to re-suggest your website and doing so could be counter-productive because a later suggestion overwrites any earlier one.
