    You are doing a lot wrong

    First of all you posted against the TOS of this forum.
    You might have missed the thread called Note: These threads are NOT for Submission Status!

    Secondly your suggestion does not follow DMOZ guidelines about how to write titles and descriptions. Making a suggestion with a good title and description may speed up the review process.

    What you are doing wrong is right there in that sentence. Do lawyers not bother with reading T&C any more? Ours, which you've agreed at least 7 times, require that a website be suggested just once to the one best category. By ignoring them, you've increased the workload of our hard pressed and much maligned volunteers, thus contributing to a process slowdown for everybody.

    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 suggestions 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.

    Also, your proposed title and description are unacceptable but that isn't a problem: We have to rewrite most of them anyway.

    Added: pvgool beat me to it but I said (and did) more :).
