A Search Engine Watch Forums member asks how long a typical DMOZ submission takes to get approved.

The answer is: it's incredibly unpredictable.

Since DMOZ is a volunteer project and the editors are taking time to review sites, it can take anywhere from "minutes to a few years," according to forum member Birdie.

AussieWebmaster adds:

Is their an editor for the category you submitted to? if no then it could take a real long time. You could apply for the job.

That's right. If there isn't an editor, you might be waiting a very long time.
