    DMOZ Planned System Outage Notification, Round 3
    Over the next three days, we will be making additional upgrades to DMOZ. As with the previous planned outage, we will be taking some parts of the directory offline so that we can complete the work. While the directory content will stay on view throughout the process, all directory submissions will be disabled from Monday, August 16 - Wednesday, August 18, 2010. The following functionality will be unavailable throughout this planned outage:
    • Site suggestions,
    • Site update requests,
    • New editor applications,
    • Editor & staff feedback, and
    • Public abuse reports.
    Neither the Resource Zone public forums nor the DMOZ editor forums will be impacted by this outage. We will provide any additional updates about this outage to the public via this blog.

    Thank you again for your patience as we work to upgrade the DMOZ directory!

    2. That is really not relevant to the post at hand.

    Go to Resource Zone at where you will find that question and others answered many times.

    5. I tried to search and got no results and then I tried to submit that URL but could not find a submit button. I may have already submitted this many months ago. Any ideas? The date today is 8/25/10 so should be much after your upgrades.

    8. For many, many years, I have sought to find someone to correct the false, misleading and incorrect description you at DMOZ have insisted on propagating. I have unfortunately, not been able to find any person, organization, company, or site operator who actually "manages" DMOZ. It appears to be a rogue group of ill-minded "editors" who choose what they like or not and then push that information onto the internet, leaving the victims of their actions with no recourse.

    The description of my company you are propagating is FALSE.

    "Classes worldwide in internal martial arts and Wudang qigong. Professor Yuzeng Liu and Terri Morgan. Multilingual site. Overland Park, Kansas."


    We never ever gave consent to have our names used in any listing. In fact, we were never so much as asked if this listing could be published, let alone serve as the sole description of our company.

    We were NEVER only located in Overland Park, Kansas. We have always maintained several locations, including China. We are no longer in Overland Park, KS and have not been there for 8 years.

    We conduct research, provide business consulting services and teach classes. We have always engaged in these activities.

    I have repeatedly for many YEARS requested the following be used as the description of our company. It is accurate (whereas what you are propagating IS NOT TRUE!

    Background information and resources for students of traditional wudang internal martial arts. International business consulting services.

    Theresa M. Morgan, President/CEO
    Wudang Research Association
