>>You are precisely correct. It's just a matter of updates. I am an editor for the ODP and I receive the same submission form whether it comes from dmoz.org or an affiliate. So, it is not necessary for you to submit your site anywhere but at the main dmoz page. All the affiliates update at different lead times. Currently, it seems that AOL is the most current.

>I would sure like to know exactly who are affiliates of OPD! You still here, Joe?
I will search through the ODP Editor Forum for that info. I'll be sure to post it as soon as I find the exact info.
