There are a number of situations where you may wish to contact a meta editor. Metas are the directory's managers and leaders. They can be relied upon to take on the unpleasant tasks that you might be faced with while editing. These include:
- Complaints from irate submitters.
- Suspicions about directory abuse.
- General questions about the directory
- Complaints about other editors.
You can contact any meta that appears on the List of meta-editors, but if you have a category-specific question--especially one about a World/ category--it can be advisable to contact a meta specializing in the category in question. Test/ODP/Areas_of_Activity lists branches of the directory, and the corresponding metas that specialize there. To actually contact your chosen meta, use the editor feedback function.
