Heads up!

Staff is taking Dmoz down for maintenance 12 October from 0800-1600 PST (Los Angeles time; 1100-1900 EST or New York City time). During these hours it will be unavailable for *everyone*, both editors and users.

Some editors accepted after 5 August 2002 have also been experiencing problems logging in. Metas and staff are aware of the situation, and steps are being taken (including the upcoming maintenance) to correct that. In the meantime, you may contact your local friendly meta to have your password reset. <img src="/images/icons/smile.gif" alt="" />

Those of you hungering* for something to do during the maintenance session, take note*! http://chefmoz.org/ (affiliated with dmoz) and http://musicmoz.org/ (not affiliated with dmoz, but like it <img src="/images/icons/smile.gif" alt="" />) are always looking for volunteers and submissions. Or you can relearn what life is like away from your computer monitor(s).

We now return you to your regularly scheduled program...

Dmoz is down again today, and is expected to be down for the rest of the day today. Editors are invited to join us in Editor Hangout and Members likewise in the Member's Lounge.

If you are an editor, but you can't access the Editor Hangout, post here to get your status changed. <img src="/images/icons/smile.gif" alt="" />

Nothing official, but DMOZ has been experiencing a few problems over the last few days.

If you're a user you'll probably be able to browse through categories but you might experience problems submitting URLs.

If you're an editor you'll probably experience difficulties logging into the system. And if you do manage to log in you may not be able to access the internal forums or you will have problems posting in the forums.

I don't know much more than that, but thought I would post something here for maximum exposure so people will know what's going on and that people are working on it <img src="/images/icons/smile.gif" alt="" />

http://ch.dmoz.org/ can be used for browsing and searching, but please note there are no submit or edit functions on that site. Those are all redirected back to dmoz.org instead.

It looks like dmoz.org is back on, but it is wise to be wary of it for the next day or two just in case there are any further lurking problems (keep a copy or make a note of everything you do).
