Wow! DMOZ 2.0 is finally launched and I can access my Editor Dashboard now. I’m still familiarizing the new layout because I’m used to play around with the old one. Nothing’s really new in DMOZ 2.0, only the user interface. The fonts are now all in Arial, and the dashboard is now neat and more Web 2.0ish.
Everything is still the same, only the CSS was revised. There are new fields in the editor profile, like the ICQ and AIM fields. I didn’t notice this in the older version of DMOZ. Maybe it’s there, but I didn’t see it.
I think more changes will be applied in the days to come. As of now, just like what I said, there are no new features.
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!
