Digg CEO Kevin Rose can’t win for losing.First, he was raked over the coals for overhauling Digg.

Then, in response to some of these complaints, he announced on Twitter that he would add some features back.

Well, that did him no good.

He was promptly ripped by ex-Digg site architect, Joe Stump, who said, “I love you man, but seriously? Upcoming has *never* been a useful feature. What’s been done to make it useful?”

Digg Reinvention Tips For Kevin Rose

As you may heard, digg let 15 employees go.

I think people on digg can not manage digg well. Digg can’t catch the train and can’t improve itself enough. Think about facebook’s “like” button. It has to be the key of digg to own the content of the internet but digg doesn’t have even a strong response. Facebook is going to make digg more useless in near future.

15-) Let all the links follow the source. Not the comments page.

17-) “Comment Karma System”
