Yes guys, that’s right! The largest human-edited web directory will have a major revamp within this year. I just discovered this a while ago after logging in my DMOZ editor account. I was surprised that I can edit anything because the page was blank. The dashboard is currently not available as of the moment, so this means they are finally upgrading the good old DMOZ.
This is what I can see after clicking the Login link in dmoz.org as of now:
DMOZ 2.0 is almost here!
From August 16 through 19 2010, all editorial functions as well as public submissions and requests for DMOZ will be offline while we get ready to launch some behind the scenes improvements to DMOZ. Meanwhile, visit the DMOZ Editor Forums to discuss DMOZ 2.0 or other editing issues
I’m so excited to see what are the new features of DMOZ 2.0 and I honestly can’t wait to witness the changes that will be made.
I googled DMOZ 2.0 and found out that this 2.0 thing was rumored a long time ago and one blog even said that it will be launched by March 2010.
I didn’t know about this news if I never logged in today. I was just surprised because a lot already blogged about DMOZ 2.0 before and until now, August 2010, there are still no changes.
As far as I can remember, I logged in last month and the dashboard is still there. Maybe this time, the major revamp will finally occur. I don’t know for sure when really is the exact date for DMOZ 2.0 launch, but I know it will be as early as this month or next month.
Let’s just wait for the official launch of DMOZ 2.0! I bet everyone is excited to see the changes, that includes me!
