Default digg on gl4x4?

I've had numerous people ask if gl4x4 could have digg buttons for threads. I'm kinda lost to this, as I've only visited digg on accident. Is there any point in doing this? I don't know how it works.

One problem with this sometimes is what is called the "Diggeffect." Basically if enough people DIGG a thread, 10's of thousands of people can flock to your site within a matter of a couple hours. Many sites can't handle the loads all at once. So it's up to you.


It might be a good way to expand the user base, but if someone is a hardcore digg user, they can still DIGG a site without their being a DIGG button. To "DIGG IT" you must be a member of the site which I am not. That's why I generally just ignore the DIGG buttons.

That's just my .02

oh, so a digg button is like them java type webshopping/ecommerce spiders that go and autmagically search for shit related to what you're viewing. IE: a lazy button.

No...a digg button says hey I think this is cool I want everyone else to check this out so you digg it, and its found on their site. Someone else diggs it and its ranking goes up. More people higher ranks then more views etc.

No. A fucking digg button. A button you click to "digg" the thread.

Now I see why your car was painted.
