I would like to create a dmoz like website, using WP.

Any suggestions on plugins or site's architecture would be welcomed.

A great starting point would be Mike's answer to the question about cloning CrunchBase. You'll want to do something similar with custom post types for entries in your directory.

If you want to allow visitors to submit sites, you could perhaps use the TDO Mini Forms plugin to allow visitors to create a new listing, and adjust the settings so that any new listings created through that form get held for administrator approval before being published.

How can I argue that this answer? :) Seriously great answer. – MikeSchinkel Aug 23 '10 at 23:05

A bit of extra info. In case you want to have you're site in Hebrew, TDO Mini Forms will not work. The configuration part of the plugin fails once you try to change strings to hebrew.

See this post by Nitzan Brumer for a good example on how to create a custom user-generated-content page.
