A Digg User Wrote an Open Letter to Digg/Kevin/Jay About Dupes [PIC]

There’s been a lot of talk on Digg lately about power users and dupes. I decided to weigh in with my general philosophy on duplicates. Please be aware, I by no means think my point of view is inherently right and would love to see input, criticism and a civil dialogue. Thank you for reading. Not just this. Just in general. “badwithcomputer

To being against power digg users is like “being against to any media just because of it’s power”.  Same starting conditions, some of them just worked harder, that’s it.

d2002 took a screenshot of alexa comparison page (digg and reddit) and posted it to digg with “Dear Reddit Cartoonist – Suck On This” title.
Give Up Internet’s Note: 1-) We didn’t we posted that cartoon to gui  because we hate jokes including “mom” keyword.   2-) To Chart: I love Digg but quantity is not quality.

Jeffler of Digg posted an interesting ss. Jeffler says; “Wherein I have the most popular video on youtube and I get ranked 6th in the most viewed because I’m not a partner (and yes, they had just done an update on the chart, so its not like it just hasn’t adjusted yet, I’ve been #1 for nearly 24 hours now and between 6-12th)

Best Digg Response Ever [PIC]

Best Digg Response Ever. First guy buried the story. Probably he thinks that he made a great job. Second user says; Congragulations, Are you feeling better now?”

This time It’s Serious. Digg really HAVE TO change.

digg logoA story in ipetitions is at the top of digg now with more than 15k diggs “Power users are controlling digg… Many people have great submissions and they never become popular. Here’s a quote from one of Digg’s very own users

"Just as an exemplary anecdote, I’ve been a user on here for nearly three years now. I read digg on a casual basis further back than that prior to signing up. In the first two years after I joined, I submitted stuff fairly regularly. Maybe once or twice a week or so. In those two years, I think maybe three to four submissions made it to the front page.

Back around February or March of this year, I submitted something I thought was pretty cool that had a decent chance of making the front page. I did it on break at work and checked digg when I got home to see how it did. The story made it to the front page allright, but it was a submission made after mine from MrBabyMan that used the same exact story with a slightly different URL. ” Click here to read the rest

Personally i gave up digg a year ago and switched to reddit like thousands. Reddit is always a fairy place. There is always a place for newcomer at reddit but i can’t say the same for digg. What should digg do then?


1-)  Remove all “buddy connections” and “buddy lists”
2-) Disable Shouting (WTH is shouting??)
3-)  Change your mind! (this is not the first time diggers talking about this)

In this story, user wants to say that, many users never mind “are you sure it’s not a duplicated” question and they submit their duplicate stories.

Next day, i see duplicate stories of this story;

Digg users gets ….. again and again.

What do you think? Should digg delete accounts of these crazy submitters? Or add a “this is duplicate” button to tag a story.

Kevin Rose Says in his Comment: HEY LOOK ‘IM ON A SCREENSHOT ON A “WHY I LOVE DIGG” ARTICLE ON THE FRONT PAGE.  HI MOM!  As you know, half of the stories submitted to digg are “this is why i love digg” articles. Most of them are really nonsense.  Anyway. In this conversation, Kevin says “… ON THE FRONT PAGE”.  I agree with him about the rest but i don’t think that this will hit the front page.
