I know it depends on the editor if they are in a good mood and it takes like forever for the editors to make decision.
Other than that is there a proper way to influence the editor to accept my submission?

I would say that there are no exact advice on how to be included in DMOZ directory. Try the best to impress an editor with your site. All that you can do is to submit a website to DMOZ choosing the correct category and providing the right website description. This may help. Be patient, it make take up to a year before your site will be approved and added by the editor.
Follow the instructions and then the only thing you can do is wait. I have had sites added to categories that were added within a week (seriously). I had others submitted in categories and I was still not in there after a year time and after contacting the category admin.
It is very dependant on how busy the category is and the admin behind it. Some just seem to be plain lazy so if you hav bad luck then you gotta wait.
Because of these problems DMOZ is by far not as important anymore as it used to be. So I wouldnt worry too much about being included or not. It is not like 5 years ago where you really needed the DMOZ entry to go to the top in google.
like yahoo, submit it then wait another 6months, have a check to see if it success, if not submit it again and wait 6 months more.
both dmoz and yahoo index your website manually, so the content is very important. you'd better add some pages of your website and upgrade some hot topic.
note: don't submit it again and again, it's uselessful.
four steps to be listed in DMOZ. Initially, you have to have information whether a point should certainly be listed and is not today listed on the ODP. Next is great which combination prime describes or fits the website you are suggesting for inclusion. After these prime three steps, you will thus infatuation to fill out the author on the dmoz abode on the party you buy best describes the compass you are suggesting. Approval for inclusion in the record may depend on the editors' right with the power of final, also depend on the receiving of volunteer editors the spot currently has deal for them.
