The editor forum should be available to you in about 24 hours after new editor approval. If it does not accept your login then, please post here.

No they are not the same.
On the editor forum you will have to login with your editor name and password.
On resource zone you will have to login with R-Z name and password.
Name on both forums will most probably the same, for security reasons it is best to have different passwords for the seperate systems.

I am an editor with generalguru user, have been for several years. I cannot login to the editor forums:

"You have specified an incorrect or inactive username, or an invalid password."

My overall question is that submissions to my category are not appearing in the editor panel to review. One person, who emailed me directly, said they posted several times. I tried to post a test link too and nothing appeared in the review panel.

So my goal is to get access to the editor forum to post the question about why listings are not being submitted.

Hi, Per RZ policy, I've updated your username here to match your Dmoz editor name, and upgraded you to "editor" {moz}
For the editor forum access issue, something went wrong with the synchronization; it should work within 8 hours of this post, otherwise please post here again :)

this kind of errors could better be reported on the internal forum
only a few editors will read R-Z

it was already reported there
now we have to wait for a technical person to look at the issue

@Elper It is still an issue. I still get message:

---

You have specified an incorrect or inactive username, or an invalid password.

---

I have resented the password a few times. Could it be because account was suspended and reinstated?

Separately, I'm awaiting approval to edit a new category. Any idea how long approval takes?

OK, two things to look at your side: 1/ your username needs to be all lowercase 2/ if your browser remembers username/password pairs, reset that one in case it's using something wrong.
From the DMOZ side, we'll reset the forum account in case it hasn't synced properly.

Hi !

I requested a reinstatement of my editor account. It's been accepted two days ago and I can now log into the editor dashboard but I still cannot access the editors forum. Could someone with appropriate permissions help !

Thank you :)
