Digg Dugging
« on: February 22, 2007, 07:30:45 AM »
Hey everybody.  I'm sure most of you know about Digg.  If you don't, I highly suggest checking it out at http://digg.com.  Basically, it's a really cool way for people to quickly give a thumbs up or a thumbs down to an article.  Based on these ratings, the articles are then listed over at Digg.com.

NWR recently put a "Digg this Article" link at the top of the news stories that go up.  This gives you the ability to give your opinion on some of the articles, and possibly put it in front of more people's eyes.

Anyway, I'm not sitting here asking people to Digg every article here, as that defeats the purpose of Digg.  If you see an article that you think is really cool and/or really informative, hit the link up and join the Digg community.  It's one of the most interesting things going on the web right now.    You'll also then be able to digg articles at other sites too, as it's spreading everywhere!  I finally took the time to create an account today.  I've been meaning to do it for quite some time.

How about del.icio.us or newsvine?

Wait, so you didn't register on Digg for MattVDB's Wii Tribute Animation?  What a jerk.  
Why must all things be so bright? Why can things not appear only in hues of brown! I am so serious about this! Dull colors are the future! The next generation! I will never accept a world with such bright colors! It is far too childish! I will rage against your cheery palette with my last breath!

Digg is where Slashdot deports its idiots and trolls to. From the few glimpses of it I've seen I'm not going on that website ever again.

I agree KDR when it comes to comments.  But I think the general system works pretty damn well.

When did we need other people's opinions to form our own opinions?

Could you add a "don't digg this article" link, too? It might come in handy for certain articles

How did you find PGC? Through a google search? Guess how the results of that search were ranked?

When you typed in "GameCube" into Google, PGC used to be third or fourth on the list. When you type in "Wii" or even "Nintendo", NWR is nowhere in sight.

If I remember correctly, I ran into you guy pre-GC launch when I followed a story through IGN and never looked back. I was at IGN for about 2 visits.

Wow Vudu, thanks for the support.  I'm glad you liked it.  I've been on Digg for around a year now.  It's had its phases, some good, some not so good.  It's currently going through a not so good one, in my opinion, but there is still quite a bit of good information there.  Do sign up.

I don't think I really knew what Digg was back when MattVDB had his thing.  I did submit it to Kotaku though, so it's not like I didn't support.  

Also, you can unDigg articles by clicking on the Digg this article link first, then clicking the bury link.  That will only be available if someone has already submitted the article though.

I found PGC after visiting GameSpy.  It was back during their "planet" days.  I just typed "planetgamecube.com into my browser and got lucky.
