Finally we have something official coming from DMOZ. The Open Directory Project has launched their own official blog . In their first post they say that DMOZ is still alive with all its editors (ofcourse we know that) ;).
While Shoemoney has been removed from DMOZ for to paying their editors, I am sure Shoe is not the only one here. I hope the DMOZ blog throws some light on many such scenarios. I have seen some editors on digitalpoint forums and how they always fight back when someone says bad about DMOZ. LOl!!!
This is why DMOZ has its own blog now.
We intend to use this blog to:
- Provide authentic messages about DMOZ and the efforts of our volunteer community.
- Highlight enhancements, both current and future.
- Allow editors to showcase their categories and describe, in their own words, why DMOZ is so important.
- Recruit new editors. If you have access to the Web and are passionate about a category, find out how to apply.
Further they want to know what we (common people ahem!! ahem!!) think about DMOZ. Looking at the comments now, I don’t see any bad feedback being removed. Lets hope it stays this way and DMOZ take things more seriously now.
