    Hi all!

    I filled the form to become a dmoz editor a few days ago, but when I received the confirmation email, it contained an invalid link to verify my email address: the page it points to says "Not a valid key". May you please check on it?

    I've already sent an email to the dmoz staff, but with no luck. What do I have to do, then?

    Thank you all

    It would be a lot easier to help you if you provided your proposed editor name, the date you applied and a clickable link to the category that you requested.

    My god, you're right.

    I forgot to say, the nickname is the same as the one i'm using now: h3st14.

    The category I was hoping to edit is: /World/Italiano/Tempo_Libero/Aria_Aperta/Scautismo/Organizzazioni/Cngei/

    The registration date is 18/12/2011, here is the link I received:

    http://www.dmoz.org/public/verifyemail?key=4c0e3998cd0752f6be5c4bbb7e4f46e6

    As you can see, it is non-working.

    Thank you for your consideration

    Your request for ../Organizzazioni/Cngei/Sezioni is awaiting evaluation. Our systems eat the key when they receive a response. Perhaps you tried to reply to the message again.

    Yes, sorry I forgot the subsection. Well, then is it OK that I receive this:

    "User needs an email address verification before the user can login."

    while trying to log in?

    Sorry to ask you about this, but how will I know when I am accepted ( or not ) as an editor?

    Thanks for everything

    You can't log in as an editor because you aren't yet an editor. You'll be sent email when your application has been evaluated.

    Hi, it's been over a month since I submitted my request. Can you confirm that my application is still under evaluation?
