How long does it take until my Dojo appears in the Dojo Finder?

To prevent third party subscription and spam we will always conduct a quality control before we update the map. This can take 1 to 3 days depending on the amount of new subscriptions.

How can I unregister my Dojo from the Dojo Finder?

In every email and newsletter we send you we have an unsubscribe link for you. Please use this link and with the next update we will remove your Dojo.

Can I unregister from the email list and newsletter and still be part of the Dojo Finder?

No. The email list and newsletter also work as a means of quality control. If our system cannot deliver our emails to your email address it will clean your email address from the list and eventually from the Dojo Finder. Through this approach we guarantee that the Dojo Finder is always up to date.

My Dojo does not appear in the Dojo Finder. Why?

Please consider the following options:

  • Have you confirmed the double opt-in email our system sent you?
  • Have you inserted your exact url as website as it is displayed in the browser? Copy and past it please.
  • Have you used the official Dojo email address for your subscription?
  • Have you filled out all required fields?
  • Is your subscription less then 3 days ago? Then we ask you for some patience please!

Can I search for more than for cities?

Not yet. We are working on further search queries.
